    By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) There are many advantages to having an active blog. In fact, I wrote a whole post about why everyone should blog. Branding, traffic, relationships, and so many other reasons people should be generating content of some sort on a regular basis. Over the years however, I discovered one more perk of blogging. Whenever something annoying happens in my world and I notice it is happening consistently, instead of addressing the issue each time, I try to write about it and send that post to the next person who does it. Ok, that sounds totally cryptic. Here are a few…

The dimmable LED bulb with a graphene-coated filament was designed at Manchester University, where the material was discovered in 2004.

But manufacturers are vague about how much power it takes to keep the consoles in this standby state. After a recent press release claiming $250 million worth of electricity was used to power Xbox Ones in standby mode in the past year, Ars Technica decided to run some tests to figure out exactly how much power is being drawn. Their conclusions: the PS4 draws about 10 Watts, $10-11 in extra electricity…

     While the high-level investment trend in innovative technology is similar between the U.S. and Europe, digging deeper exposes interesting differences. Europe seems to be punching above its weight in some predictable areas like banking and hospitality while being weaker in historically strong areas like fashion and insurance. At a high level, the trend of early-stage technology deals over the… Read More

  • Entrepreneurs: It is Officially No Longer Acceptable to Say These Four Words

    23 Mar 2015 | 12:27 am
    By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) There are many advantages to having an active blog. In fact, I wrote a whole post about why everyone should blog. Branding, traffic, relationships, and so many other reasons people should be generating content of some sort on a regular basis. Over the years however, I discovered one more perk of blogging. Whenever something annoying happens in my world and I notice it is happening consistently, instead of addressing the issue each time, I try to write about it and send that post to the next person who does it. Ok, that sounds totally cryptic. Here are a few…

    If you are active on the social web, surely, you get this question a few times a week, at the very least. “How do you find the time to be everywhere? I mean there are so many platforms out there and you seem to be active on all of them. How do you balance it all?” Truth be told, the social landscape is a little bit out of control. Every week, there is some new app that marketers will tell you, you have to pay attention to if you want to build your brand.

    Five Years Ago This week in 2010, as is so often the case, there were lots of stupid and/or troublesome moves in the entertainment world. Hollywood was still making up statistics about piracy for the AP to parrot, Warner Bros. was working on a confusing release strategy that favored Blockbuster Video, Universal Music was funding another propaganda campaign against file sharing, and Sony Music somehow managed to take down Beyonce's official videos for piracy. Viacom's true intent in its YouTube lawsuit became clear — pretending that the DMCA requires filtering — and the band MGMT,…

    Bear witness to the genesis of a new era, fellow sports fans. I've begged and pleaded in the past for the major professional sports leagues to take the harness off of the ability to stream games. Even as the trend of cord-cutting has progressed along nicely, I have always argued that the only dam keeping a flood of cord-cutters at bay has been professional sports broadcast deals. Those deals have almost universally been saddled with local blackout restrictions, making streaming games all but useless for the majority of fans. The past few years, however, have seen inched progress towards wider…

The camera is rather straightforward and can be worn on the body. In fact it actually can sit inside the wearer’s shirt pocket so as to be discreet and so as to prevent it from falling out. The idea here is to help those who are blind or visually impaired from bumping into objects, but interestingly enough instead of relying on a proximity sensor which alerts the wearer if…

Plus, free Office 365 Personal for a year and 1 TB of OneDrive cloud storage.

  • Samsung Galaxy S6/S6 Edge pre-orders begin March 27 stateside for full April 10 launch

    27 Mar 2015 | 11:55 am
    Never to be outdone by arch-nemesis HTC, Samsung has announced its hotly anticipated Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge will be available on the same day as the One M9 in the US. March 27, that is, i.e. tomorrow, or better yet, in under 24 hours. But you can actually have the M9 delivered to your doorsteps by the end of the business day, whereas the standard GS6 and its dual-curved sibling will only start shipping April 10. Again, that’s not a random date, as HTC plans to bring its… Continue reading Samsung Galaxy S6/S6 Edge pre-orders begin March 27 stateside for full April 10 launch Related posts:…

  • Gadget Ogling: Shooting Flames, Flowing Time, and Locked-Up Temptation

    28 Mar 2015 | 5:00 am
    Someway, somehow, it's apparently legal to own the XM42 flamethrower in the United States, unless you happen to live in California or Maryland. I can't fathom any circumstance under which a weapon -- let's not mince words here -- capable of shooting flames 25 feet should be available for anyone to pick up if they have $700 lying around to back Ion Productions' crowdfunding campaign. That said, it's incredibly cool and fulfills all my childhood superhero fantasies.

Cyanogen is committed to liberating the Android OS from the financial grip of Google. Its CyanogenMod firmware adds considerable personalization features and improvements to the Android platform. Cyanogen has spurred a developing secondary app market for an alternative Android distribution based on its mods.
  • Facebook Invites App Devs to Join in Messenger Family Planning

    John P. Mello Jr.
    27 Mar 2015 | 12:39 pm
    Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg this week told an audience at the F8 conference for Facebook developers that the company's future lies in its family of apps and in giving the network's members the ability to share what they want, where they want. "We're building this family so we can offer unique, world-class experiences for all of the ways that people want to share," Zuckerberg told some 2,000 developers attending the forum in San Francisco. That shift from a single service to a family of applications is a significant one, he added.
  • The Internet's Split Personality

    John P. Mello Jr.
    27 Mar 2015 | 8:51 am
    The Internet has been good for education but bad for morality, according to a study by the Pew Research Center. Researchers conducted face-to-face surveys with 36,619 people in 32 developing countries. A median of 64 percent of respondents said the Internet has had a good influence on education. On the other hand, a median of 42 percent said the Internet has had a bad influence on morality. Those polled were divided over the impact of the Net on politics, but they believed it has had a positive impact on personal relationships and the economy.
  • Twitter's Periscope Allows Live Stream Replays

    Quinten Plummer
    26 Mar 2015 | 1:58 pm
    Twitter on Thursday unveiled Periscope, the live-streaming app developed by a company it acquired earlier this year, reportedly for just under $100 million. It's a big bet for an app that's in a genre that already has matured, but Twitter is counting on the mobile world's appetite for more video. Periscope is a lot like the popular new app Meerkat, with the biggest difference being Periscope's support for broadcasting replays of streamed content. Both allow broadcasters to store copies of their feeds locally, but Meerkat doesn't allow reruns.

  • RSA’s Move to Ban Booth Babes

    Bill Brenner
    26 Mar 2015 | 3:33 am
    The language above has been added to exhibitor contracts for RSA Conference 2015. Zenobia Godschalk, a communications practitioner in the security industry and vocal critic of so-called “booth babes” at conferences like RSA and Black Hat, dropped me a line to say RSA added the language to force vendors to stop with the skimpy clothing. It appears the years of blowback over booth babes has had an affect, at least in RSA’s case. In an email, Zenobia said, “We are thrilled to report that RSA has actually changed their language in their vendor agreements this year! It now…
  • What “Hug-Gate” Says About The Infosec Community

    Bill Brenner
    23 Mar 2015 | 4:07 am
    Every once in awhile, someone in the security community says something on Twitter that ignites emotional discussion (some call it drama). This past weekend, it started with a comment about hugs. Someone commented that some security cons involve a lot of hugging and that it makes her uncomfortable. Someone responded with a comment about the benefits of hugs. Then all hell broke loose. Why, the first person asked, do people get offended for not wanting hugs at these events? After all, isn’t it well proven that our industry is loaded with people who suffer from social disorders?

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

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

  • Awkward: HTC uses a photo of the One M8 on an ad for the M9

    Holly Brockwell
    27 Mar 2015 | 10:19 am
    There’s been a lot of discussion about how similar-looking the HTC One M8 and new One M9 are, with many users disappointed they didn’t get something more distinctive this time around. And now it seems even HTC can’t tell their new phone from the old one – at least judging by a promoted Facebook post spotted today by Phandroid: Yep, that’s an M8. The power button on the top instead of the right edge is a dead giveaway, The post was up for a good two hours after Phandroid’s announcement, but it’s just been deleted by HTC. HTC’s commented in the…

    Zoe Sugg, or Zoella, as she’s more commonly known, is extremely well-known for her YouTube videos.

    So how do you improve the iPhone? Better battery life? Even faster processors? Well one way that the Cupertino giant could enhance the phone and keep one step ahead of its rivals is to improve the camera. So some interesting news today picked up by Apple Insider that the company has been awarded a new patent for a digital camera component which in theory could mean future iPhone users will be able to take significantly better pictures. The key part of the patent is a light splitter which is apparently a component that’s usually found in HD video cameras. The light splitter parses red,…

    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…

    Well the GameAThon got off to a bit of a bumpy start, with Twitch TV temporarily banning me for not showing gaming content. So now I’m streaming on YouTube… had a bit of scrambling around to hook it up but it’s done. Gaming-wise, we loosely stuck to the schedule with Pathfinder Adventure Card Game leading off, followed by some competitive Halo. Looks like we blew over the time allotted for Dwarf Fortress, but I’ll pick up the schedule in a few minutes with some Pandemic on the iPad. I may stick the whole hour or, if I lose too quickly, will find something else to play. Either way,…

More, actually since I have to work tomorrow morning, so I’ll likely be up over 36 hours. So I’m not sure what to expect, except that as my sleep-deprived brain tries to play games, you can bet that I’ll suck more as the evening wears on. Ah well.

It’s been suggested that, with the right support, the digital sector could grow seven times faster than overall EU GDP in years to come.

But no, the White House has not hired him to run its IT department.The man taking on that job is David Recordon, a 28-years-young veteran of Facebook and open standards efforts such as OpenID. And yes, he does strike something of a resemblance to the actor, as has been pointed out numerous times over the years during Recordon's public appearances, such as when he discussed "Scaling Facebook with OpenSource Tools"…

    T-Mobile is crowing about making a list as one of the 2015 World's Most Ethical Companies. My guess is that voting must have taken place after December, when the FCC announced that T-Mobile would be paying at least $90 for cramming -- that is, "for billing customers millions of dollars in unauthorized third-party subscriptions and premium text messaging services."Then again, it's all relative. AT&T got whacked earlier last year by the FCC for $105M for doing something similar. The State of California also nailed AT&T late last year for almost $24M in a hazardous waste dumping case.

Multnomah County (OR) Judge Diana Stewart cleared 16-year-old Portland resident Thai Gurule of several charges brought against him after he was pummeled and tased by police officers for… well, basically for responding angrily to a somewhat derogatory gesture. Police that night had been looking for a group of seven to nine African American men, including one shirtless one, who had been walking the streets,…
  • Both The NFL And MLB Look To Expand Streaming Offerings By Ending Local Blackouts

    Timothy Geigner
    27 Mar 2015 | 6:18 pm
    Bear witness to the genesis of a new era, fellow sports fans. I've begged and pleaded in the past for the major professional sports leagues to take the harness off of the ability to stream games. Even as the trend of cord-cutting has progressed along nicely, I have always argued that the only dam keeping a flood of cord-cutters at bay has been professional sports broadcast deals. Those deals have almost universally been saddled with local blackout restrictions, making streaming games all but useless for the majority of fans. The past few years, however, have seen inched progress towards wider…

    People eat all kinds of different things in different parts of the world. Some countries have well-known traditional meals and menu items, and foodies all over the internet are posting pictures of what they're eating all the time. Food-obsessed folks seem to like to capture snapshots of food -- both good and bad -- for fun and commentary. Here are some global food snapshots for you to look over that might not be all that appetizing. Military food rations from different countries have surprising variety.

    21 Mar 2015 | 7:17 pm
    I’ve been playing around with music again. For my birthday, I ordered Teenage Engineering’s Factory OP-16 synth, which has been fun to tinker with. Here’s a quick series of patterns I slammed together into a track on it: I’ve been trying to get it to play nicely with my Kaossilator 2, but they don’t sync, so it’s all upon my impeccable timing to get them totally aligned, which is a little difficult. In addition to this little bit of tinkering fun, a few weeks back, some coworkers and myself rented out some studio space and jammed for 3 hours. It was so much…

Weblogs, Inc. was built upon the success of Engadget. Engadget was a blogging machine built by Brian Alvey, Jason Calacanis, and Peter Rojas after Jason successfully persuaded Peter to jump ship from Gizmodo and build a better Gizmodo. The audience followed Peter’s star power as an established gadget and technology blogger, Engadget started out-scooping Gizmodo, and it was a success.

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

    I’ve had advertisements on this site forever. I just removed them. There’s no point. In any case, if you like the things I tend to write and do and you want to motivate me to keep doing these things / do them more often, I set up a Patreon page where you can become a patron. Although, I must say, although I like the idea behind Patreon, I don’t like the execution much. It’s very inflexible. Why can’t I set up different types of patronage for different endeavors at different price points? Why is everything either recurring by month or recurring by thing created?

    As I tweeted earlier today, I’m now the answer to life, the universe, and everything years old. Kristin asked me if I felt older on the way to church this morning, and my reply was, “I feel like I’m learning new things recently.” This is my first birthday without a dad and it’s about 6 months since he passed. I was struck oddly today by the lack of him calling me up to sing the silly penny song that he’s sung to me every birthday that I can remember (counting pennies you receive for each year behind you).

That includes their compact myCloud Smallpack, a backpack with two laptop/tablet slots and plenty of room for writing implements, which you also have too many of. The myCloud Smallpack functions well enough as an organizer, too. Besides the dual 13″ tablet/laptop sleeves, there are pockets for a water bottle or umbrella, business cards, and a host of other zippered…

And today, Microsoft has decreed that henceforth these apps - which are all ultimately based on Windows Runtime - will be known as Windows apps. Historically, of course, "Windows apps" (or "Windows programs") referred to standard, Win32-based executables that ran on the Windows desktop. Under the new naming scheme, these Win32 apps will now be called Windows desktop applications. As you can see in the slide above,…

    This is one of the most satisfying projects I have done I think. Mainly because this is a real device and something so historically important. It is a fully functioning Enigma machine you can wear on your wrist. This is a three rotor Enigma machine as used by German Wermacht in WW2 for encoding messages. Way cooler than any Android Wrist or iPhone Mini watch.

    The following is from the current Ideal Email from Hammock Inc. Read the entire idea post here: You Can’t Control How Others See 50 Shades of Blue. Years ago, while Marissa Mayer was still at Google, an article appeared in the New York Times about the way she tested 41 shades of blue to decide which to use in a navigation bar. Many people still use that as a benchmark for the lengths a marketer should go to make sure something works. But there’s a “rest of the story” to the 41 shades test, as shared by Douglas Bowman, Google’s first visual designer. When he left Google to become…

While I was scratched and bruised, the major injuries were invisible: a concussion that wiped out a couple of hours of my memory and what turned out to be–although I didn’t realize it until a couple of months of denial–a chipped-off bone in my left hand that required surgery and a wire that’s still inside my left ring finger. But enough about me. It was my bike I was…

(But I didn’t know the technique had a name like “homepage takeover.”) I couldn’t believe what I was seeing, however, as the ad didn’t just take over the page, it mingled with the page — demonstrating some witty interplay with the 2008-era conventions of a news website.

    The android auto update helps keep your Smartphone with the up-to-date apps and bug fixes; however, it comes at a cost in terms of data usage and battery life. Most people would thus prefer to disable android auto update and configure manual installations. By default, all apps downloaded from the Google Play Store have the default update setting ‘On’. This means every time an update to a particular app is released by the developer, the user’s smart phone will automatically download it as long as the internet data access is enabled. These android auto updates happen without…

    After launching the Titan X earlier this month, it looks like Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) is set to unveil a second video card based on the GM200 silicon, the GeForce GTX 980 Ti. The card is rumored to offer significant increase in better performance when compared to the GM204-based GTX 980, which is why Nvidia may decide to call the card the GTX 990. Based on the latest leak, the GTX 980 Ti is said to offer the full complement of 3,072 CUDA cores available in the GM200, while reducing the video memory to 6GB GDDR5, down from the 12GB featured on the Titan X.

The Legend of Zelda Wii U port has been delayed, and won’t be releasing in 2015 after all. The news comes straight from game producer Eiji Aonuma who announced the push back in a recent video update.

  • Resolution Overkill: Why QHD and 4K are Too Much for Smartphones

    Sam Reynolds
    27 Mar 2015 | 3:01 am
    In late November Qualcomm (NASDAQ: QCOM) announced that the next-generation of its SoCs would have the processing power to push out a 4K resolution on a smartphone. This would be a jump from the existing QHD (quad HD, 2560×1440) resolution that’s found on the displays of high-end smartphones currently on the market. While 4K certainly has its uses and benefits on larger displays, the potential use cases on such a small smartphone screen are negligible at best. On an average smartphone screen, which is usually around 5.5-6 inches, the resolution of QHD — let alone 4K — is…

  • Netflix vs. Hulu Plus: If you could only have one?

    Terry White
    18 Mar 2015 | 1:04 pm
    I’ve been a Netflix subscriber for years and I have also tried a trial subscription to Hulu Plus. The thing that turned me off of Hulu (and still does) is that you pay the monthly fee ($7.99) and yet they still play ads. Also not to mention that during my trial period all the ads were bought out by the presidential candidates of 2012. I just couldn’t take any more. Three years later I’m willing to try Hulu Plus again, but is it worth it? I’d gladly pay more per month to eliminate the ads. Many of you have Hulu, Netflix or both. Tell me why? What if you could only have…

In most cases there isn’t a whole lot that’s new, but companies do sometimes find a way to improve on an already crowded product category. The Simplicam + Closeli is a standard WiFi connected webcam with a nicer design than most. It has a well thought out base/stand as well as things like a 10 foot “flat” USB cable so that you can more easily hide it in your home. This camera can be monitored from…

However, as they started to reveal the specs I quickly began to realize that this wasn’t going to be a product for me. I also had to remind some of my friends that not every product created is for every user. This is why Apple now has three different products in their notebook lineup (MacBook, MacBook Air and MacBook Pro). I’m mostly a pro user and this is NOT a pro machine. Could it be…

While Amanda Knox got the good news this past week that her murder conviction remains overturned, the crime that caused the media frenzy is still one of the most fascinating and heinous in recent history, making Kate Beckinsale’s new movie pretty intriguing. Kate Beckinsale‘s new movie, Face of an Angel, is loosely based on the book, Angel Face: Sex, Murder, and the Inside Story of Amanda Knox, written by Newsweek and Daily Beast journalist Barbie Latza Nadeau.

It is also rumored, that it was the lukewarm reception of the flagship device this year, which prompted a senior management change at HTC too, with Peter Chou being demoted in the hierarchy of the organization. It looks like HTC is in a hurry to right the wrongs that it did and therefore barely twenty days after the release of the M9, another invite has poured in seemingly for a device called HTC M9+.

There was a massive hoopla around the device as it did not include a 3.5 mm headset jack in the device. Next up, out of the labs of Oppo is a device called Oppo R7, which is the first phone with virtually no bezel. We have seen the likes of LG try hard to reduce the bezel around the device in the G2 and the G3, Sharp did something similar with Arquous, though Oppo’s attempt looks by far the best one. The R7 was leaked out in a few…

  • How to Move Apps & Games to SD card on Redmi 1S

    27 Mar 2015 | 5:19 am
    Xiaomi Redmi 1S was an amazing entry-level phone (discontinued now), and its successor ‘Redmi 2‘ has been recently launched in India. Out of 8GB, around 6GB of free space is available for the users on Redmi 1S which is pretty decent. But once you install 2-3 high-end games on your device, the internal storage can easily run out and unfortunately there is no option to move apps to SD card neither on Redmi 1S nor Redmi 2. Moreover, there is no way to install apps directly on SD card in Redmi 1S. Luckily, a not so complex workaround is available that helps you move the compatible…

They are also the number five in the Indian smartphone market in Q4 of 2014 with about 4 percent market share.

  • Moto E (2015) Review – A pretty ‘Basic’ deal, with unpredictable performance drops

    Cosmic Paladin
    21 Mar 2015 | 5:58 am
    E for ‘economy‘ is what Motorola has aimed for with the Moto E that was introduced in 2014 and we need not ring a bell here on how successful it was in terms of changing trends, breaking records in sales and all the good things. Who would’ve thought a tiny entry-level phone packing decent specs that can get you thru the day with telephony, housing the elusive vanilla Android OS would come at that price! And within a year of its release, Motorola wants to leverage on the success – in the form of Moto E (2nd Generation). Does it churn the game at the entry level…

  • Redmi 2 vs Moto E 2nd Gen vs Lenovo A6000 – The entry level battle!

    Cosmic Paladin
    12 Mar 2015 | 10:10 pm
    With the release of Xiaomi Redmi 2 in India, the battle ground for entry-level phones in India has now heated up! And boy we do love when this happens. So the closest contenders to Redmi 2 are the all new Moto E and the Lenovo A6000. Just going by the spec sheet, looks and price; Redmi 2 comes off as a better phone with stunning camera, 4G support on both SIMs and other features not to be found on either Moto E or Lenovo A6000. But it all boils down to one’s preferences and requirements about the OS and the design. We will hold off until we get to use the devices for a while before we…

  • Beware of Airbnb entering the hyperlocal travel guide business

    Frédéric Filloux
    22 Mar 2015 | 12:31 pm
      by Frédéric Filloux  Airbnb has every reason to enter the news services sector – and to threaten a broad range of media/services such as Trip Advisor or Yelp.  Seen through the eyes of travel information publishers, Airbnb holds a dream position: a huge base of 25 million potential readers/users, spread over 34,000 cities in 190 countries, well in tune with the brand’s core product and attributes. For a start, should Airbnb develop a publishing arm, this unparalleled notoriety would spare it tens of millions dollars otherwise required to promote its content services: In the…
  • News Media Should Drop Native Apps

    Frédéric Filloux
    15 Mar 2015 | 12:19 pm
      by Frédéric Filloux When it comes to the most basic form of news delivery, facts keep piling up in a way that makes native apps more and more questionable. Here is why it’s worth considering a move back to mobile sites or web apps…   One of the most shared statistic on mobile use is this one: Applications account for 86% of the time spend b’y users. This leaves a mere 14% for browser-based activities, i.e. sites designed for mobile, either especially coded for nomad consumption, built using responsive design techniques that adapt look and feel to screen size, or…
  • After The First 3 Million AppleWatches

    Jean-Louis Gassée
    8 Mar 2015 | 11:54 am
      By Jean-Louis Gassée We’ll soon know what the AppleWatch is and what it can do…it may take a while to understand why Apple has gone to such lengths to hype the device. Under Steve Jobs‘ leadership, Apple 2.0 obsessed over the marriage of form and function. Starting with Jony Ive’s Bondi Blue iMac, Apple products stood out in a sea of beige and black boxes. But even so, fashion, the providential spawn of this fecund marriage, has always been a by-product — welcome, but not a first-order pursuit With the AppleWatch things have changed: Fashion is now a primary component,…

      by Frédéric Filloux My last column about new valuations in digital media triggered an abundance of comments. Here are my responses and additions to the discussion.  The most revealing part of argument used by those who tweeted (800 of them), commented or emailed me, is how many wished things to remain simple and segregated: legacy vs. native media, content producers vs. service providers, ancestral performances indicators and, of course, the self-granted permission to a certain category of people to decide what is worthy.

    With the tremendous popularity of shows like The Walking Dead, and movies like World War Z, lots of people are thinking about the zombie apocalypse. While I think we can agree that we don’t really need to worry about zombies rising up and taking over the world, it can be fun to think about things like whether your car could be a survival machine, or what devices could help you fight off hordes of undead.

  • 5 Surprising Reasons Behind The GNOME Resurgence

    Danny Stieben
    27 Mar 2015 | 12:00 pm
    When the team behind GNOME came out with GNOME 3, which included the infamous GNOME Shell, the most popular desktop environment of the time saw a sharp decrease in users. And honestly, that trend is pretty easy to explain. When GNOME 3 initially came out, it was incomplete, buggy, and foreign. The concepts behind GNOME Shell were never before seen on a desktop system, and lots of users who were used to panels/taskbars and menus didn’t like the rather dramatic changes. But all of that happened a few years back. Today, GNOME 3 is finally regaining users, and there are...Read the full…

  • 25 Creative Examples of Ambigram Logo Designs

    Igor Ovsyannykov
    26 Mar 2015 | 10:40 pm
    Sans the plot itself, possibly the most rousing effect of Dan Brown’s Angels and Demons is its mark in the world of ambigrams. The “Illuminati” ambigram in the book (and movie) launched thousands of online searches about the nature of the design. The great thing about this typographical creation is its cool factor. You can’t see an ambigram design and not think of it as “cool” or “awesome.” Because it is. When you can read word/s the same way upside down, or in any orientation or POV, it’s remarkable. It’s genius. Not only is the structure of the design impressive, an…

    With the growing interest of people in DIY designs and projects in social media platforms like Pinterest, the monogram design is rampant as ever. You’ve probably seen a monogram before even if you’re not aware of the design’s official name. Monogram is a pattern, design, or concept where two or more letters are combined or overlapped to create one distinct symbol. Think of Louis Vuitton’s logo, one of the most iconic of all monograms. The prevalence of monograms isn’t surprising at all since the design dates from ancient history. The ancient Greeks first used it, renaissance…
  • Photos of Futuristic Yugoslavian Monuments by Jan Kempenaers

    Igor Ovsyannykov
    22 Mar 2015 | 10:20 pm
    Yugoslavia isn’t just famous for its tumultuous past that is filled with wars and political mobocracy. If you’re a fan of odd-looking art, you’ve probably heard of Yugoslavian monuments. These works of art are incredibly off-the-wall when it comes to design that a great deal of people describe them as futuristic monuments. I personally picture them as monuments you can find in Vulcan, of course that is if Spock’s home planet is real. Alas, I digress. The peculiar-looking Yugoslavian monuments were commissioned by the country’s former president Josip Broz Tito. The thing that makes…

    Generally, critical care refers to the direct delivery of medical care for a seriously ill or injured patient. An illness or injury to be considered critical must seriously impair one or more vital organs of the patient so that their survival rate is put at risk. This requires detailed interpretation of multiple data sources along with the application of advanced technology to manage the patient. Therefore, critical medical support requires frequent personal assessment and manipulation by a trained practitioner. As per 2012 statistics, there are approximately 6000 ICUs in the United States,…

Though most children get coverage through their parents’ employer-based health insurance or the government-funded Children’s Health Insurance Program and Medicaid (CHIP), the American Dental Association says that around 10 million children aged 2 through 18 had no dental insurance in 2011. In order to help people not eligible for Medicaid and having no workplace coverage, health insurance marketplaces were opened last year.

    19 Mar 2015 | 10:49 pm
    Microsoft can make your Android device run Windows 10. TechCrunch’s sources say this may just be the first stage of a larger strategy. The Microsoft ROM could potentially be used to flash any Android device with a version of Windows 10. The result could be something like Cyanogen, which is available to pretty much anyone with an Android device and some spare time. Don’t forget, Microsoft is reportedly set to make a big investment in the company behind Cyanogen. Maybe part of that deal includes help developing this new... Read the rest of the story at

  • How big does the ConfigMgr client cache need to be to accommodate Nomad?

    Duane Gardiner
    27 Mar 2015 | 5:15 am
    When planning a ConfigMgr and Nomad implementation or when integrating Nomad into an existing ConfigMgr environment, I’m often asked “How big does the ConfigMgr client cache need to be to accommodate Nomad?” Or, “Do we need to change the ConfigMgr client’s cache size to accommodate Nomad?” The short answer is, “It doesn’t matter.” Now, when I say “It doesn’t matter”, I don’t mean that the size of the ConfigMgr client cache doesn’t matter at all. On the contrary, it’s a critically important design decision.
  • SAO – not just another acronym for SAM…

    Jason Keogh
    25 Mar 2015 | 8:34 am
    So – we’ve created a new acronym for Software Asset Management (SAM) in 1E. We’re calling it SAO – Software Asset Optimization. Why yet another acronym? And why “Software Asset Optimization”? Because ITAM and SAM have always, to some degree, frustrated me. It is crucial to manage your IT Assets (which is the stated aim of ITAM and as a subset – SAM). Often ITAM and SAM tools vendors equate “manage” with “count” – that’s just not good enough. 1E is not developing a new suite of tools which merely count installs or licenses – SAO is about active optimization –…

    20 Mar 2015 | 7:43 am
    Joomla 3.4 was released last month and just as with every major Joomla release there were beta and release candidates made available for testing over the preceding weeks. 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…

For IT managers a good, simple definition for RISK may be from the Open FAIR model which states: “Risk is defined as the probable frequency and magnitude of future loss”   Risk management should follow a structured process acknowledging…

Even the simplest and most “personal” of them, like personal planners, address books and to-do lists, enable users to put their data in the cloud, share them with others and access them using a myriad of devices and interfaces. The bottom line is that every one of them needs a back-end and an API to talk to. All projects are executed through tight cooperation between back-end…

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.

  • Poland? I can see some changes for the better

    Peter Horsten
    30 Jan 2015 | 7:58 am
    How do you like Poland? What do you think about Polish people? – these are the questions any foreigner living in Poland or staying here for a while has to answer, sooner or later. What do I, a Dutchman living in Gdańsk, think about Poland? Some weeks ago I was interviewed by, one of the leading news papers in Poland. This post is a translation of the original article which can be found here. Ewa Karendys: You moved to Gdańsk due to your wife, who is Polish. How did you first meet? Peter Horsten: I came to Gdańsk in April 1995 for a week-long trip organised by the faculty I…
  • Is it time to open your own online store?

    Peter Horsten
    31 Oct 2014 | 12:03 pm
    You might have started selling online through a market place like Amazon, Etsy, eBay, Cqout or your local favorite like DaWanda in Germany, Marktplaats in The Netherlands or Allegro in Poland. Hopefully, your business is growing and if things go well you will soon need your own platform. Increasingly you will face the relatively high costs of the platform you use, but more important is the fact it doesn’t allow you to grow and stand out from the crowd. It might be high time to have your own branded store to really engage with your customers. So, how do you know when it’s time to take…

  • Top 10 Books to Un-Borg

    I have been thinking of doing this for a long time. Actually I plan to extend it to 100 books that I think are a good foundation for anyone to read in order to have a more rounded, more able, and most of all a more independent way of thinking than just unconsciously going along with the greater reactive biomass that is carefully being shaped by TV and other mass media, including this here Internet. Just to be clear then, my criteria for whether a book makes it into my top 100 is primarily based on the practical, real effect it has on you awakening from the dreary, matrix-like slumber induced…

  • On Concept Writing: From What’s Now to What’s Next – The Evolution of Concept Stimuli

    Paul Crowe
    16 Mar 2015 | 8:11 am
    In my last article, I shared some R&D conducted by Ipsos on how consumers consume concepts. The results indicated that consumers typically do not consume traditional concepts in a linear fashion: they almost always start with the image and then the headline, moving to the insight and then price (typically at the bottom of the concept) and then moving on to the body of the concept. This result was striking, but also not very surprising. After all, as an industry we typically expose consumers to the entire concept all at once – essentially letting them consume the concept in any order…

    They say it takes a village to raise a child, and now that I have a rambunctious one year old of my own, I completely agree. But as a researcher, I could not help but think this is also true of developing an innovation. It takes a helping hand and input from hundreds, if not thousands, of individuals to bring an idea to life. As such, many marketers are building their own innovation villages in the form of online communities to help them through the process of nurturing their innovation from infancy to the marketplace.

    While wandering inside SM BF last night, I passed by the Samsung store and saw people were gathering inside. I got curious and decided to check what was going on.

Unlike many of my blogger friends, I didn’t have the chance play around with one and thought this is a nice opportunity to find out for myself how good this device is. The first thing I noticed when I held the S6 Edge was how light it is to carry. I mean, it was really really light compared to my (seemingly) heavy Note 4. And the build quality is…

  • Thoughts on Apple Pay

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

    4 Mar 2015 | 7:13 am
    What does it take to stand out on Google? Thanks to a new upgrade to Google My Business, a couple of photos may do the trick. We all know that Google likes images. Images stand out from text information, whether that’s making the knowledge panel pop in search results or bringing a location listing to life on Google Maps.

  • Google Just Added Live Chat to Search Results

    3 Mar 2015 | 2:19 pm
    Calling a business has never been fun. Between waiting for someone to pick up, wondering if you’ll be stuck on hold, dealing with automated menus, and finally getting a live person only to find out they can’t answer your question, what should be a two minute proposition often takes more like 20. And in the age of text messaging, even two minutes isn’t short. Hold music may be a thing of the past, however. Google appears to be working on taking the phone call out of contacting your local business, or at least giving you the option to use an online chat function instead.
  • Class Action Lawsuit Against Google Thrown Out

    2 Mar 2015 | 8:41 am
    If Google requires mobile device makers to use it as their default search engine, does it have an unfair monopoly on the market? The answer is no, according to a decision last week by a US District Court judge. Or rather—to be more accurate–the judge decided there’s no proof the search engine’s practices have caused harm. What’s in a MADA? The case started with Google’s MADA, or Mobile Application Distribution Agreement. This is the set of terms and conditions it requires of hardware manufacturers making devices that use the Android operating system.

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

    On Tuesday, Google announced that Morgan Stanley CFO Ruth Porat would join the company in the same capacity.  And so in what is sort of an awkward scenario, Morgan Stanley analyst Benjamin Swinburne, who covers Google, chimed in what the departure of its own firm's CFO means (for Google, not Morgan Stanley).  From Swinburne:  Ruth Porat's background as CFO and former technology banker make her a strong fit for the Google CFO. In addition, it's worth noting that her focus with investors and analysts while at Morgan Stanley was on setting clear targets and providing…
  • Boeing has patented a 'Star Wars'-style force field

    James Cook
    28 Mar 2015 | 2:21 pm
    Boeing has won a patent for a protective force field that could stop vehicles from being harmed by explosions, Popular Science reports. It might sound futuristic — and it is. The patent isn't about stopping bullets or lasers or anything like that, though. Instead, it detects explosions near a vehicle, and then quickly heats up the air or water between the vehicle and the blast. The heat creates a plasma shield that is more dense than normal air, adding to the vehicle's protection. This diagram from Boeing shows the different parts of the force-field system: Boeing's patent application shows…

    Long before SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk gained a net worth of an estimated $11.9 billion, or before he became a millionaire at 28 after selling his first company, Zip2, he lived off just a dollar a day. Forcing himself to live mainly off hot dogs and oranges wasn't the result of poverty or some charitable movement, but an experiment to see if he had what it takes to lead a life as an entrepreneur, he tells astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson in the latest episode of Tyson's StarTalk Radio podcast. As they discuss Musk's early years, Musk explains his fascination as a freshman and sophomore…

    The growth of online and offline communication channels has placed companies under a public microscope, and as a result consumers are more fickle about the brands they choose to support. Media fragmentation and information overload has made it much more difficult for communicators to single-handedly keep track of all the information that is publicly available about their brands.

    Danny Stieben
    27 Mar 2015 | 12:00 pm
    When the team behind GNOME came out with GNOME 3, which included the infamous GNOME Shell, the most popular desktop environment of the time saw a sharp decrease in users. And honestly, that trend is pretty easy to explain. When GNOME 3 initially came out, it was incomplete, buggy, and foreign.

So why would you ever want to hide text in a Word document?

In this case, you could hide some text, print the file and then print the document again, but choose to print hidden text in the printing options dialog. In this article I will show you how to…

Maintenance by definition is “stuff you do on a regular basis in the absence of problems,” to avoid problems developing. It’s not “stuff you only do when things go wrong.”Most modern versions of OS X don’t suffer from the same problems as previous versions. In…

    What would be the average size of pendrives commonly in use? May be 8 or 16 GB? Kingston’s HyperX 256GB pendrive is a Bigdata in your pocket. It breaks the usual data capacities of pendrives to offer a whooping 256GB pendrive. As time grows, so does the amount of data we need to carry with us.

  • When science meets parliament

    Olivia Carter, Senior Lecturer &amp; ARC Future Fellow at University of Melbourne
    26 Mar 2015 | 10:49 pm
    Boarding the flight back from Canberra felt like stepping back through the magic wardrobe from Narnia. I had been attending the annual Science meets Parliament event on behalf of The Psychology Foundation of Australia. I was one of 200 scientists representing the “science” of everything from crystallography through to entomology. As a research academic, you are always aware that your research – and in some instances your entire career – depends on the decisions and opinions of “the government.” But I have to confess that exactly what “the government” meant in this context was…

Eckart, CC BYIt was billed as the biggest event in the galactic centre since we discovered that the Milky Way harboured a supermassive black hole. The G2 gas cloud, discovered in 2011, was found to be heading directly towards the black hole. Given the estimated mass – a few Earth masses of gas – there was no way it could possibly survive the passage intact. Immediately theorists set to work computing the likely shredding of the cloud as it reached…

    Education Minister Christopher Pyne is waving goodbye to the Future Fellowships scheme and it could cost Australian research dearly. Mick Tsikas/AAPChristopher Pyne’s proposed cuts to the Future Fellowships program will have devastating ripple effects well beyond those researchers who will miss out on research funding. The Australian Research Council’s Future Fellowship scheme has succeeded precisely because it has been Australia’s most significant systematic investment of funds in people.

  • How safe is air travel today?

    According to the statistics, modern airliners are safer than ever. John/Flickr, CC BY-NC-SAIn light of the news of another tragic airline crash, and following in the wake of several other high profile air disasters, it might be natural to ask whether air travel is becoming less safe. In fact, according to the numbers, air travel is safer than at almost any point in the history of commercial flight.

    This week Amazon rolled out its latest update for Fire TV.

So, how do you know what version you're set-top box is currently running and how do you check to see if the update is yet available to you?

  • Highlight key text on web pages with Super Simple Highlighter for Chrome

    Mike Williams
    28 Mar 2015 | 7:13 pm
    You're working on some web research project, part way through a lengthy page, when it's time to go and do something else. Annoying, because while you can bookmark the site, when you next return you’ll still have to find all the most important quotes and paragraphs all over again. Super Simple Highlighter is a Chrome extension which makes it easy to highlight one or more sections of a page, restoring them when you return (usually) so you can carry on where you left off. The highlighting process works more or less as we’d expect: select some text with the mouse, right-click and choose your…
  • The FBI wants your computer and mobile to be insecure

    Mark Wilson
    28 Mar 2015 | 1:21 pm
    You'd think that governments would be encouraging people to keep their computers and personal data safe. Until relatively recently, this has been exactly what the FBI has been pushing -- suggesting that phone users should enable encryption on their handsets. But it seems that there has been something of a change of heart. It's probably Snowden's fault. Now, as part of an "ongoing website redesign", advice about using encryption and protective PINs has vanished from the FBI website. Forget the security-focused devices such as the Blackphone 2, it appears that the bureau wants your data, and…
  • Microsoft schedules more Lumias to receive Windows 10 Technical Preview for phones

    28 Mar 2015 | 8:00 am
    Windows Phone users are a special bunch. They have chosen to invest in the last-place mobile ecosystem. The reason they chose this route can be many things, such as Microsoft loyalty or having an underdog personality. The most sensible reason for choosing Windows Phone, however, is the potential low cost of ownership coupled with the well-designed user interface. It is a solid experience. Of course, these users are very anxious to try the next version of the mobile operating system, Windows 10 for phones. When Microsoft released the Technical Preview of the OS last month, the list of…

    Joe Wilcox
    27 Mar 2015 | 6:48 pm
    Today, Rachel Whetstone, Google's senior vice president of communications and policy, asks what has been on my mind since a stunning scoop set the Wall Street Journal against the Federal Trade Commission and the search and information giant. As I explained in an analysis of the news reporting, the story is flush with insinuation and veiled accusation, bereft of context. Among my more serious concerns: Journal-parent News Corp's ongoing tug-a-war with Google's business model and its impact on paid content. Both entities likely would benefit by any means that trustbusters could crimp Google.

  • Innovative and Massive Thermo Tent Regulates the Inside Temperature and Keep Noises Out

    mike chua
    28 Mar 2015 | 8:46 am
    The basis of any tent is to provide its occupants shelter, but if you really think about, does your tent really does that? Sure, we have no doubt it does, but it will not keep the noisy party outside, nor will you keep warm or cool when the weather is cold or hot, does it? Obviously, those are the sacrifices a tent has to make for them to be portable, I guess, but to Irish native Derek O’Sullivan and Thermo Tents, those are compromises that they won’t accept and hence the birth of Thermo Tent 6. Billed as the world’s first correctly thermally and acoustically insulated tent, this…

Man, the good’ol Charlie would be 68 in real human years and certainly won’t look like he did when we were kids. Probably most of us have thought about the age issue at some point in time and so does artist Max Dunbar. Not did he think about the age issue, he reimagined how Charlie Brown and his…
  • Michigan Artist Built a Machine That Converts Your Photos into ‘Paintings’ Composed of Colored BB

    Family or self portrait shot using sophisticated, high-resolution cameras is nothing new. Almost everyone can do that these days and it is hardly considered art if you ask us. Therefore, if you are looking for something a little on the unique end and worthy of being called ‘art’, then may we suggest you consider turning your pretty photos into BB mosaics. But what the heck is a BB mosaic, you ask? Basically, it is the use of multicolored BBs (the ‘ammo’ of BB guns or similar) to form your portrait. Just think of it as pixel art, but only these pixels are physical pixels that you can…

  • Dangerous glass fibers in cigarettes worsen lung damage for smokers

    19 Jan 2015 | 7:58 pm
    Shocking new research reveals that a specific type of lung cancer many smokers develop comes from tiny tears in their lung tissue caused by microscopic glass fibers, also known as glass wool, found in many conventional cigarette filters. These rips in the epithelial (soft) tissue fuel the development of tumors and cancerous cells due to the constant overload of toxins, namely pesticides, nicotine and ammonia, contained in commercial cigarette smoke. The filters of typical commercial cigarettes contain microscopic, needle-shaped shards of glass wool (like fiberglass insulation) which escape…

    After the initial shock of losing my son, I contacted the insurance company that we have through my husbands work, The Hartford. We did not have a primary insurance policy, only a supplemental dependent life insurance policy for $10,000.00. I contacted them so fast because someone made me aware that most insurance policies exclude suicide no matter the reason. I read the policy and was totally confused by the wording. After talking to several people for over an hour, the only answer I received was that it was excluded, however to file a claim anyways and see what happens. After receiving this…

  • Eyedrops provide Night vision to see up to 50 meters in Darkness.

    28 Mar 2015 | 9:37 am
    A group of scientists in California have successfully created eye drops that temporarily enable night vision. They use mixture of Insulin and a chemical known as "Ce6" (Chlorin e6) as eye drop for getting the night vision. It allows the user to view the objects clearly up to 50 meters in darkness. This chemical "Ce6" is found in some deep-sea fish and is often used to treat cancer and night blindness. The Ce6 solution will start work in as little as one hour after getting injected into eyes using micropippette . And the Night vision effect will be lasting for “many hours” afterwards, and…

Time-consuming field studies are needed to locate suitable sites. Now, a team of graduate students at MIT and data scientists have come up with a way of automating parts of that…

    Branding is vitally important to any business. It is more than just a logo, but that is part of it.  Your branding lets people know what your business is about. It is your promise to your customers and potential customers about the quality of your products and services. It is a statement about what your brand stands for. Branding also promotes recognition of your company. Certain phrases, music, symbols are so tied with companies that you when you see or hear them you think of the company (even when their name is not said). For instance, the double arches (aka McDonald’s) have inundated…

In his post, Nick Carr discussed a NBER paper (see Robots Are Us: Some Economics of Human Replacement, purchase required). The paper implied we will shortly reach peak code because of the proliferation of software reuse and durability which will lead to less of a need for software engineers/coders.

  • All flash storage performance testing

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

  • The First Stand-up

    Joe Kinsella
    28 Mar 2015 | 8:51 am
    Every day across the tech industry, teams gather for daily stand-up meetings. While the structure varies by organization, the intent is the same: to provide status and identify blocking issues. While I have attended many stand-ups over the years, I have an odd footnote in my personal history: I was at the very first stand-up. The location was 25 Corporate Drive in Burlington, Massachusetts (current headquarters of Acquia), and the year was 1992 or 1993. I was a fresh-faced college graduate who had recently transferred to a small software team in Easel Corporation to join two talented…
  • Using Trello for Hiring

    Joe Kinsella
    27 Mar 2015 | 4:38 am
    Early in CloudHealth I used Trello as a quick and easy way to manage my time. Having a visual board gave me a sense of order that helped better manage my Lean validation. As time went on and the company was formed, I found new uses for Trello, such as managing my sprints, roadmap, personal to-do list and even product documentation. As we started ramping our 2015 hiring, our HR manager and I decided to try a new use for Trello: as a hiring board. The model we adopted was simple: cards as candidates and color-coded labels to denote our different sources (e.g. referral, recruiter, internally…
  • MVF: The Importance of Not Over-investing

    Joe Kinsella
    21 Mar 2015 | 10:24 am
    The Lean movement has made everyone aware of the importance of a feedback loop in driving the success of businesses, products and features. By driving tight and iterative Build-Measure-Learn loops, organizations can limit the risk of their investments and not overcommit resources toward initiatives that either fail or do not deliver the required results. I have blogged in the past on the importance of the Minimum Viable Feature (MVF) in my company, but recently noticed we started to drift from our roots in one important aspect: over-investing in trying to build great software behind our MVFs.
  • My Entrepreneur Not To Do List

    As entrepreneurs of early stage businesses, we all aspire to help our companies navigate the turbulent waters from idea to product market fit. But once you've achieved product market fit, a new and sometimes harder challenge often arises: scaling the business. During the scaling phase, an upside to being an early member of the company is you can play a lot of roles that add value to the organization. The downside is that if you played all these roles, you will either burnout or make yourself an impediment to scale. I've been doing a poor job lately managing my To Do list. As a reminder I…
  • Save $140 Per Month On Verizon Family Plan

    Joe Kinsella
    6 Mar 2015 | 8:20 am
    While there are many personal services and products I value and pay for, there are a few I do not. My Verizon Wireless service falls in the later category. While I value being able to have voice and internet connectivity wherever I go, I will confess to believing this should be a commodity in 2015. Unfortunately contrived carrier plans, artificial restrictions on device portability, and the financing of devices through plans have slowed the commoditization of wireless service. Nothing makes this more clear than paying $240 per month for a family plan for myself, my wife and two boys that…

  • How many Android users will convert to iPhone because of the Apple Watch?

    Yoni Heisler
    27 Mar 2015 | 6:45 pm
    As applied to Apple, the 'halo effect' refers to the dynamic wherein the popularity and success of one product incentivizes  consumers to purchase other Apple products they might not otherwise have given a second look. The first notable example of this dynamic was seen when the iPod became a household name back in the mid-2000s. Building on this, the unparalleled success of the iPhone and iPad further served to familiarize the masses with the Apple brand, thereby having a discernible impact on Mac sales overall. Looking ahead, with the Apple Watch launch on the horizon, Apple's most…
  • HTC still in turmoil: Lead designer out after just one year on the job

    Brad Reed
    27 Mar 2015 | 6:00 pm
    It's never a good sign to see a major executive shakeup at a company just after it makes a major product launch -- see Windows 8 architect Steven Sinofsky's abrupt departure from Microsoft after Windows 8 launched, for instance. This is now the case with HTC, which last week announced that CEO Peter Chou would be replaced by chairman Cher Wang less than a month after the company unveiled its flagship HTC One M9 phone. And now Engadget brings us word of another key departure: Jonah Becker, HTC's VP of Industrial Design, who leaves the company after just a year working as its lead designer.

You might say that’s good isn’t it? And indeed there’s nothing wrong in doing a good job. But, with further discussions it appeared a few recruiters have more of a role than many colleagues in the same business have acknowledged.

In my travels as a sales motivational speaker, the refrain, “If only I could find the right people for my business” is common.

    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 seems that the Google Analytics use of a public tracking code was a mistake. Anyone can use your tracking code on their site, which adds to your traffic, or they can create ghost visits and spam referrals by hammering Google Analytics with your code while never visiting your site. Oh, and the codes are easy to guess, so they do not even need to know about your site. In most cases, this is perfectly harmless (IMHO) as only Google Analytics data is affected and your reports look funny. Your ad stats, if not Google, remain the same as they are independent.

    23 Mar 2015 | 9:32 am
    (Image Credit: iStockPhoto/Believe_In_Me) With the fast-paced developments in online and information technologies, software has become an inseparable part of our everyday lives. We carry around a world of information in our pocket, which we can access instantly. For many people, not a day goes by without interacting with a UI to get something done. Whether it’s the consumption or communication of information, we want that software to run smoothly in order to achieve its purpose. This was one of the main reasons for us to start Testbirds. We wanted to help companies and organisations to…
  • Google launches 'Places' API for sensible locations

    20 Mar 2015 | 8:23 am
    (Image Credit: iStockPhoto/kozyavka) Few of us can name a place by its latitude and longitude, but I bet most know several locations by its name. Up until today, developers have only been able to add location pickers using co-ordinates. With the launch of Google's new 'Places' API for Android, and in beta for iOS, users can specify where they are with actual place names instead. Google wrote in a blog post: "People don’t think of their location in terms of coordinates on a map. They want context on what shops or restaurants they’re at, and what’s around them."…

  • More concerns arise over DDoS threats facing enterprises and service providers

    26 Mar 2015 | 5:54 pm
    (c) According to data released by distributed denial of service (DDoS) provider Black Lotus, average packet volume for DDoS attacks increased 340% and average bit volume shot up 245% in the final quarter of 2014. The attacks, which appeared in the Black Lotus Q4 2014 Threat Report, were described by Shawn Marck, co-founder and chief security officer at Black Lotus, as “smokescreens for other underhanded activity.” The largest attack drew 41.1 gigabits per second in bit volume and an eye watering 36 million packets per second. In comparison, an average attack was…
  • MobileIron, AirWatch, Citrix and IBM poll strongly in latest analyst EMM vendor rankings

    26 Mar 2015 | 5:37 am
    (c) Another day, another analyst report hits the inbox of Enterprise AppsTech ranking the best enterprise mobility management (EMM) vendors – but this one, from the Info-Tech Research Group, seems rather interesting. The analysts have found AirWatch by VMware, MobileIron, Citrix and IBM as the ‘champion’ players in its latest report, entitled ‘Vendor Landscape: Enterprise Mobility Management’. 11 vendors in total were assessed, with AirWatch scoring highest on leading product, while IBM – not unexpectedly given the company’s size…
  • Advocating a design-led approach to enterprise app engineering

    24 Mar 2015 | 5:53 pm
    (c) “Mobile apps – what’s in it for me?” If it goes unanswered, that challenging question posed by field workers asked to adopt a new mobile app will surely find expression in their later behaviour – especially if the answer is “Erm, to be honest not very much.” To suggest that user acceptance is all when it comes to mobile apps is almost to understate the case. As countless companies have discovered to their bottom line cost, gripping the issues of mobile device management and security on their own do not a rounded enterprise…
  • Report sheds light on inadequacy of BYOD policies in mitigating security risk

    24 Mar 2015 | 3:05 am
    (c) A new study from Flexera Software and IDC suggests enterprises are not realising all the risks associated with mobile app security. Almost half (47%) of respondents say they’re putting in BYOD policies that block risky app behaviours to mitigate mobile security risks, yet only 16% say their policies result in lower risk. Mobile security and mobile app security threats are well documented, from the issue of hackers and malware, such as Heartbleed or NotCompatible. Yet another issue organisations aren’t looking at, the report argues, is more innocuous apps from…
  • New study argues enterprises are too lax on mobile app security

    22 Mar 2015 | 5:50 pm
    2014 was the toughest year on record for mobile security threats. 16 million mobile devices were hit by malware, representing a 25% spike year on year. More sophisticated threats, such as Heartbleed and NotCompatible, are coming to the fore. With that in mind, you’d expect users and organisations to be more vigilant about their app security, right? Wrong. According to new data released by Ponemon Institute on behalf of IBM, half of companies polled have zero budget dedicated to securing their mobile apps. This comes despite an average $34m war chest each year for companies to spend on…

  • Buy a Samsung Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge, Receive a One Year Netflix Subscription

    Paul Lilly
    27 Mar 2015 | 12:15 pm
    Enticing offer for the Android camp It doesn't appear that Samsung needs much help selling Android fans on its recently released Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge smartphones, but just in case you're on the fence, the South Korean handset maker is hoping a little nudge from T-Mobile will help. That nudge comes in the form of a one-year Netflix subscription at no additional cost when you purchase a Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge from a T-Mobile authorized dealer. The deal runs from now until April 12, 2015, and is open to both new and existing Netflix customers. Once you've purchased a qualifying handset,…
  • Valve and HTC to let Developers Apply for a Free Vive Headset “Soon”

    Sean D Knight
    27 Mar 2015 | 11:41 am
    Vive Developer Edition “will be free, at least initially” At GDC 2015, Valve was able to impress many people with its SteamVR technology including our own Maximum PC Online Managing Editor Jimmy Thang (see what he thought about the SteamVR demo). But what is surprising is that the company announced that a consumer version will be available in 2015. It is short notice for a device that has just been revealed, but that doesn’t seem to bother Valve. So far, a small selection of developers already have kits, but Valve and HTC will be letting developers apply for a free Vive developer kit…

Section 215 of the Patriot Act allows for the bulk collection of metadata but the provision will expire in June unless the gover
