  • Stanford researchers develop self-cooling solar cells

    David Szondy
    25 Jul 2014 | 6:39 pm
    Photovoltaic cells are one of the more promising alternative energy sources. Mechanically they are very simple, with no moving parts, and are clean and emission-free. Unfortunately they are also inefficient. One of the reasons for this is that they overheat, a problem that a Stanford University team under electrical engineering professor Shanhui Fan is addressing with the development of a thin glass layer that makes solar cells self-cooling. ..

    It's no secret that hundreds of millions of people around the world have little or no access to drinkable water. While a number of projects are aimed at getting filtration systems to those people, many of those systems require electricity, contain costly materials such as silver, or treat the water at a slow rate. The low-cost DrinkPure filter, by contrast, is simply screwed onto the top of an existing bottle, and can purify approximately one liter (34 fl oz) of water per minute. ..

  • Amazon Web Services: It's Big, Getting Bigger And Not Slowing Down

    Matt Asay
    25 Jul 2014 | 10:22 am
    Amazon Web Services is already the 800-pound gorilla in cloud. It offers five times the utilized compute capacity of its next 14 competitors combined and is arguably the fastest-growing software business in history. According to Amazon CTO Werner Vogels, however, this isn't nearly ambitious enough. AWS aims to become an 800,000-pound gorilla. That's because Amazon isn't in the business of "infrastructure as a service," as the process of setting data services such as storage and computation is dubbed in a jargony way. According to Vogels, Amazon is in "the business of…

Though the legislation applies to cellphones, it requires the Librarian of Congress to consider including wireless devices like tablets as well. It also allows the owner of a phone to authorize a third party to unlock it, thus legalizing businesses who perform that service for consumers.See also: The…

    Buick owners enjoying their car’s built-in LTE in a photo provided by GM Last week, General Motors invited me to a press event at which it showed off some new Buicks. Normally, such events involve driving new cars. But when we hit the road during this one, I willingly sat in the back seat and fooled around with my phone and tablet–because the primary purpose of the event was to demonstrate the 4G LTE broadband and Wi-Fi hotspot features built into the cars. Across its brands, GM is being particularly aggressive about rolling out in-vehicle LTE connectivity. Most Buick models,…
  • A Celebration of James Garner’s Polaroid Commercials

    20 Jul 2014 | 11:52 am
    They weren’t the best thing he ever did, or the one which we’ll cherish the most. But with the sad news of the passing of James Garner, it’s worth pausing to remember the commercials he did in the late 1970s and early 1980s for Polaroid. And–this being Technologizer–it’s how we’ll memorialize him here. When it came to celebrity spokespeople, Polaroid wasn’t stingy: Laurence Olivier did the first ad for the SX-70 camera, and Danny Kaye touted the ill-fated Polavision instant movie system. Hiring James Garner was a similarly classy move, but the…

So in a way, it’s appropriate that the proprietary software which the studio used to animate it, Emo, had a lot of history behind it. Emo’s origins go back to the 1980s, an era in which computer graphics were very different than they are today, and DreamWorks didn’t even exist. It was created by Pacific Data Images, the…

Some constraints -- they had to seem plausible, look good when illustrated on a whiteboard, and work with the punchline, "middle out."

  • The Major Industry Battle Brewing Between Samsung vs Google

    Over the last five years, Samsung has become a behemoth in the tech marketplace. Their smartphones dominate the tech landscape and their profits have been relatively good until recently, considering the fact they still make most of their money on hardware. However, as we have seen in the PC market, a hardware only business model is not sustainable. Indeed, as smartphones become more and more commoditized, Samsung’s profits margins will soon be squeezed — especially by competitors like Xaomi who is eating their lunch in China. While they are one of the most vertically integrated…

A second source says Apple bought BookLamp’s employees and technology for a price that was “higher than… Read More
  • Automattic Experiments With Selfies App For Android

    Kyle Russell
    25 Jul 2014 | 4:55 pm
     A couple of days ago, an acquaintance on Twitter pointed out the website for Selfies, a new social app from Automattic, best known as the company behind WordPress. I found it odd that the app was out in the wild and hadn’t received any press coverage, but according to the site’s FAQ, that was the point: to see what would happen if they just put it out there.

How many ghosts live there? How fast is the WiFi? This site won’t help you with all of those, but it will help you with that last one. Read More

    25 Jul 2014 | 12:15 am
    By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) As you might have noticed, I like to interview people. Really important people. I literally made myself a list of individuals that I would one day, somehow, hope to have the privilege to interview. Some of them were a little out there. You know, people like the actress Alyssa Milano (remember Who’s the Boss? Good times.), Om Malik, the father of tech journalism, and even Steve Wozniak who founded this small company called Apple with his buddy Steve Jobs in their garage. I set myself some pretty high goals and so far, so good. Alyssa Milano One of the people…

    By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) Listen up, folks. I am not a big fan of product leaks or Apple rumors. I mean, we all know that prior to every big Apple launch of any kind, the rumor mill goes into high gear. How often are those rumors accurate? Not very often… But then there are some sources that you just know are reliable. Marques Brownlee is one such source. And this video of the iPhone 6 display is obviously legit so can we just put that behind us and discuss the topic at hand? Great. According to many sources, the iPhone will introduce the first display on a mobile phone made out of…
  • The One Android Flaw that Kept me on iPhone but Is Now Fixed in Android L

    By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) Listen, I have no intention of starting an iOS vs Android debate here so if that is why you opened this article, allow me to introduce you to the little X in the corner… I use an iPhone 5S as my daily phone and until recently, there was no way I was going to replace that with an Android device. Yes, I am fully aware that some of the newer Android flagship devices are more impressive than the iPhone, in both personality and looks, but for me, despite many MANY attempts, I stuck with iPhone. I have played with the Nexus 5. I have even played with the HTC M8.

Sounds like another silly Twitter post trying to tell me that something as simple and trivial as a Twitter favorite is really a secret marketing tool. Sounds crazy, I know. I hope you change your mind after hearing me out. Allow me to begin my opening statements with a question. What, in your opinion, is the difference between sales and marketing? After all, both sales and marketing have the same ultimate goal, to encourage you to buy/use/adopt a product/concept/service, right? I mean if marketing does…

    By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) Before we jump in, let me answer the obvious question. “Why have you been meeting Israeli startups every day for years?” Good question. Thought you’d never ask. As my role of CMO at Zula, I am fortunate to work for a company that gets it. The company understands what too many companies still do not, that push marketing, self promotion, and spammy aggressive tactics simply do not work. The way to market a brand today is to provide value, whether that value is in the form of content, thought leadership, or just some help opening the right doors. I know, I…

The summit falls during the annual U.N. General Assembly meeting as well as the yearly Clinton Global Initiative conference in New York, which both attract world leaders. U.N.

    We've been covering the ridiculous ruling in the EU on the "right to be forgotten," which was interpreted to mean that search engines could be forced to delete links to perfectly truthful stories (and even if those stories are allowed to be kept online). Google has been trying to comply with the over 90,000 requests it has received -- nearly half of which it has approved -- and removed from its European searches. The company has been struggling to figure out how to comply with the ruling, and those struggles continue. Originally, it was going to place a notice on search results pages where…

    We've been covering the discussion around copyright reform down in Australia for a while, and it's continuing to get worse and worse. As you may recall, after a long and detailed process, involving careful input from a variety of stakeholders on all sides of the equation, the Australian Law Reform Commission (ALRC) came out with a set of proposals that were actually pretty good, including things like introducing fair use to Australia. Of course, rather than pay attention to this detailed and thoughtful process, the current Attorney General, George Brandis, decided to only listen to Hollywood.

    Mike Masnick
    25 Jul 2014 | 10:05 am
    We've written a few times about the highly cynical astroturfing practice in Washington DC, in which certain lobbyist groups basically have "deals" with certain public interest groups. The basic deal is that the lobbyists guarantee big cash donations from their big company clients, and then the lobbyists get to write letters "on behalf of" those organizations for whatever policy they want enacted (or blocked). We quoted a story from Declan McCullagh in 2008 which included this classic line from a lobbyist who worked in one of these shops: "You go down the Latino people, the deaf people, the…
  • Latest Abuse: Feds Reading Emails Between Prisoners And Their Lawyers

    Mike Masnick
    25 Jul 2014 | 9:07 am
    Another day, another story of abuse by federal prosecutors. The latest is that they're now regularly reading the emails between inmates and their lawyers. These are the kinds of things that most people believe should be part of confidential attorney-client privilege. And, for quite some time, prosecutors respected that. However, now they're claiming that since prisoners using the prison email system agree to a notice upfront saying their communications may be monitored, they gave up that right. Inmates’ calls to or from lawyers, however, are generally exempt from such monitoring. But across…

    It's hard to imagine looking at the absurdly excessive copyright penalties on the books and thinking, "Hey, maybe these should be a bit higher." But Congress has shown itself to be exceedingly imaginative when it comes to cranking up copyright, so perhaps it is no surprise that in yesterday's hearing on those penalties�”covering statutory damages and criminal sanctions�”a number of witnesses and Representatives alike seemed to think that those remedies are insufficient. More surprising, though, was an unexpected moment of clarity from Michigan's Rep. John Conyers, a staple of…

    There are many headphone companies around, although when it comes to “luxury” headphones, brands like Bose and Beats probably comes to mind. Both companies, in the audiophile world, are typically viewed as companies who price their headphones for more than they are worth. We guess this is subjective and it really depends on whether you can justify its price, but in the meantime it looks like Bose has hit Beats with a lawsuit. In a recent court filing, Bose alleges that Beats had infringed upon five of its patents, all of which are related to noise-cancelling headphones. The patents in…

Of course, most buyers are likely to use the mini-laptop in one of two modes, so the 2-in-1 tag is more fitting. Nevertheless, you’re looking at a design winner,… Continue reading Acer teases Aspire Switch 10 flavor with Full HD display, US pricing unknown Related posts: 4-in-1 Acer Aspire Switch tablet/laptop goes official with Windows 8.1 Leaked: 3-in-1 Acer Aspire…
  • Half of link removal requests have been granted by Google

    25 Jul 2014 | 12:44 pm
    Actual numbers are finally being attached to the European "right to be forgotten" ruling that lets regular people ask Google and other search engines to remove links to some search results. Since Google created a form for people to use when requesting that a link be taken down, over 91,000 requests have been made. Some of the requests dealt with multiple links, and so the total number of search links affected by those requests is actually 328,000.Continue reading Half of link removal requests have been granted by Google Related posts: Google’s Eric Schmidt unhappy with EU link removal…

    The “bigger is better” mobile trend has got a little out of hand lately, with lines between smartphones and tablets practically nonexistent, as gargantuan devices like Samsung’s Korean-exclusive Galaxy W are advertised as phones. And the crazy thing is Koreans aren’t alone in their never-ending quest for larger and larger “handhelds”.

    Devon Razey
    25 Jul 2014 | 10:50 am
    Recently, Business Insider gave us some insight into what’s going on in the very narrow, secretive world of Artificial Intelligence. The small population of A.I. experts are throwing everything they have, with some very high profile financial backing, into the projects that will take us to an artificially intelligent future. Nothing to worry about here. Artificial intelligence is a really nice, conceptually positive idea, but obviously we all have fear of a “Skynet” scenario. Theoretically, a machine with the same mental capabilities of a human would have the self-awareness to…

  • Google to Search for the Meaning of Health

    Richard Adhikari
    25 Jul 2014 | 6:37 pm
    Google is seeking 175 volunteers from whom it will collect bodily samples in an effort to create their biochemical fingerprints and establish the baseline for a healthy body. The Baseline study, to be run by Google X labs, will seek to connect traditional clinical observations of health, such as diet -- or habits, such as smoking -- with molecular-level changes. The idea is to note changes before symptoms appear and provide treatment. The study is a pilot run by molecular biologist Andrew Conrad of Google X with a clinical partner.

    25 Jul 2014 | 11:23 am
    For long-suffering Linux users who have endured the dearth of high-quality action games on their open source desktops, the wait for better game developer support soon may be over. New technology is making Linux more attractive to game makers. In fact, it may keep Linux under the hood, so players will have no clue Linux is inside. Until now, game makers have relied primarily on Windows PCs and gaming consoles powered by proprietary alternatives to the Linux OS. However, Linux-based systems specially designed for gaming are on the rise.
  • IBM Is a 'Kindred Spirit': Whoa, Tim Cook, Whoa

    Chris Maxcer
    25 Jul 2014 | 6:22 am
    The Apple deal with IBM has shown us a whole new side of Tim Cook -- the gushing, hype-laden, excited-but-still-vague Tim Cook who says things like "kindred spirit," "huge opportunity," and "radical step for enterprise." Who peppers his speech with words like "profound," "complementary," "landmark" and "thrilled." Now, I'm a big fan of Tim Cook, but when he uttered this, "We fit together like a puzzle, and so this is profound. It is landmark. It's historic," my mouth dropped open and I felt compelled to look away.

    In a rare move, Apple on Thursday rolled out a beta version of its upcoming desktop operating system, OS X Yosemite, to a million "testers." The company pulled the wraps off Yosemite at the World Wide Developers Conference in June and has been tweaking it for developers since that time, but this latest version is a beta that as many as one million members of the public can download. This is the first time Apple has offered a public beta of OS X since it introduced the operating system in 2000.

    Kris Holt
    24 Jul 2014 | 12:41 pm
    Like many other tech companies, Twitter is largely made up of white, male employees, pointing to a lack of diversity in the industry. The company revealed statistics about its organizational demographics, noting that almost 60 percent of Twitter's U.S. employees self-identify as white. Just under 30 percent identify as Asian. Combined, blacks, Native Americans, Pacific Islanders and Hispanics account for less than 7 percent. Of Twitter's global workforce of around 3,000, 70 percent are male, and only a tenth of tech workers are women.

    25 Jul 2014 | 4:28 am
    If you haven’t seen it yet, I highly recommend the DEF CON documentary that came out last year. For nearly two hours, you get a detailed history of the event and get a pretty good introduction to the major players who make the whole thing work. If you’re going for the first time, the documentary, directed by Jason Scott Sadofsky, is must-viewing. The post First-Time DEF CON Attendee?

    I never could keep my mouth shut. When a conversation is going on, I can’t just mind my business and focus on the work at hand. I have to be the man at the table who injects quips into the discussion; the guy who thinks he’s not contributing properly unless he pontificates, no matter how ridiculous his words are. That was the scenario Friday when some of us Akamites (Akamai employees) were talking about the content for a new site in the works. I noted that while I love the daily blogging in The Akamai Security Blog and am grateful that I have another forum – The OCD…

    According to research, the tattoo removal industry is booming, as more and more people begin to regret the now-faded blue symbols and transient sweethearts they’ve had inked onto their bodies. The ever-judgemental Katie Hopkins has labelled tattoos ‘cheap’, ‘trashy’ and ‘common’, while one writer for The Guardian has commented on her struggle to come to terms with the new wave of tattoos sported by otherwise ‘respectable’ people. Now a word in defence: we know that there are some brilliant tattoo artists out there, and there has been…
  • Possible brain cancer cure found by scientists

    Diane Shipley
    25 Jul 2014 | 8:30 am
    Metastatic brain cancer, caused when cancer from another site spreads to the brain, is one of the deadliest forms of the disease (even more so than when cancer starts in the brain). It affects between 10 and 30% of adult cancer patients, there are no treatment options, and it’s almost always fatal. But a new study from the Cincinnati Cancer Center suggests that there might be a glimmer of hope on the horizon. Xiaoyang Qi and his team from the College of Medicine have found that by combining two natural components, SapC and DOPS (called SapC-DOPS when they’re together), they can kill…
  • Alcatel OneTouch Pop S3 review: The £80 4G phone that’s a little ray of Android sunshine

    Hayley Minn
    25 Jul 2014 | 8:20 am
    This phone is the epitome of ‘cheap and cheerful’. It’s bright, sweet, and just £80 on pay-as-you-go. So what exactly do you get in a sub-£100 Android handset these days? A surprising amount, in this case – 4G LTE, a quad-core Snapdragon™ processor, a main and front-facing camera, and even a choice of three snap-on battery covers. But is it any good, or is that £80 better used towards a higher-end handset? The handset – 
7/10 If the look of this phone reminds you of the iPhone 5c, you’re not alone – in fact, over the week I used it, several people mistook it for one.

    Originally published on Tech Digest With the HTC One (M7) being one of the most popular HTC phones of all time, the M8 had a big case to fill. But HTC have outdone themselves, adding a staggering amount of impressive features, both in hardware and software. This is a flagship phone in every way, and it really is almost flawless. The handset – 9/10 What a beauty. Smoother than a seashell, the M8’s brushed metal finish glides across the palm of your hand – almost to the point that I was worried about dropping it. The curved back is extremely comfortable to hold, even on long calls, and…

    If you’ve got children, nieces and nephews, or are fulfilling a lifelong dream to be a dinner lady, you’ll know that soggy sandwiches and a Penguin just don’t cut it for lunch anymore. Kids today are eating sushi and quinoa before they can even say ‘sushi’ or ‘it’s pronounced “keen-wah, actually”’ and most schools, nurseries and afterschool activities frown on meals with no nutritional content whatsoever (those spoilsports). But packing up half a dozen Tupperware containers every day gets old fast, and if you want to send your child in with something hot, they’ll have to…

    James O'Malley
    25 Jul 2014 | 7:51 am
    Since I took up cycling a couple of years ago, I’ve become something of a militant cyclist. Having to take to London’s roads is not a pleasant experience for much of the time, because the city is so poorly equipped to deal with people on two wheels. It’s insane that Transport for London hasn’t done more about it too – given that cycling would be good for the environment, congestion, public health and… pretty much everything. But that’s a rant for another day. Twitter, yesterday. (Visual Metaphor) So much of a militant cyclist have I become, that I…

    Google’s Chromecast streaming dongle is a year old today – so as we Cast a video of some candles being blown out, perhaps it is a good moment to ask if the device has lived up to its potential. In terms of pure sales, it is easy to call the Chromecast a success. Though it arrived somewhat later in the UK (it only arrived in March), it is easy to call it a success. Over a million people, including over 100,000 in the UK alone have picked up the £30 dongle because hey, why wouldn’t you when the price is so good?

A creation of a number of Canadian universities, the hybrid art-project/social experiment/folly is capable of talking and interacting in conversations with the people who pick it up along the way. Perhaps it is a bit like if Siri were given a body. Apparently it will even take photos and post them to Instagram – after asking for permission.

Based on CEO Satya Nadella’s remarks in the post-earnings conference call, many were led to believe that Microsoft is going to create a single version of Windows. That is of course not true, and what’s happening is also not new information. What is in fact happening is that from an engineering perspective, Microsoft is hard at work to make a single “core” of the OS which will then power devices of various types: phones, phablets, tablets, laptops, PCs, Xbox, and even “things” in…

    The budget segment has been the biggest area of strength for Windows Phone devices, with handsets like the Lumia 520 and the 620 doing brisk business. The Lumia 520 alone managed to capture over a third of the Windows Phone market. Now, this crucial low-end Windows Phone handset is receiving a refresh in the form of the Lumia 530. The Lumia 530 promises to deliver more for less. However, the competition has gotten a lot tougher over the past few months with the launch of well-built Android devices like the Moto E. Does the Lumia 530 have enough to put up a good fight? The Lumia 530 is…

  • CSOT starts AMOLED trial production at 6-Gen fab, aims for mass production in 2016

    24 Jul 2014 | 3:55 am
    In April 2014 TCL announced that their CSOT subsidiary will invest 16 billion yuan ($2.5 billion) to build a 6-Gen display fab that will be used to produce small/medium AMOLED displays. Now digitimes reports that CSOT, with support from the government of Wuhan, China, already begun trial production of AMOLED panels, and the company expects to start mass production by 2016.It doesn't seem likely that CSOT, went from an investment plan to trial production in less than 3 months, but honestly these reports from China are not very clear. I hear it's more likely that CSOT has a pilot 4.5-Gen AMOLED…

    Researchers from France's SPINTEC/CEA developed a a new multi-bit MRAM storage paradigm that may enable a large density boost for MRAM devices. The researchers achieved up to 4 bits per cell on 110-nm devices.Multi-bit per cell relies on multiple-voltage levels that correspond to various magnetic configurations. this is readable by key features of the electrical response (extrema points). This research used Crocus' Magnetic Logic Unit (MLU) technology. Crocus is affiliated with SPINTEC. The team now wants to develop a fully functional multi-bit MLU memory product. They also say that…
  • Researcher use RENs to create MTJs for MRAM devices

    19 Jun 2014 | 6:33 am
    Researchers from New Zealand's Victoria University are developing MRAM devices (MTJs) based on rare earth nitrides (RENs). RENs, grown under ulta-high vacuum are both magnetic and semiconducting.The team is basing its work on europium nitride, which is not usually magnetic, but has been "tricked" into behaving like a magnet by being produced with slightly too few nitrogen atoms. Those RENs are grown in France's Centre for Research on Hetero-Epitaxy and Applications. Source: ZDNet
  • Graphene Quantum Dots to enable next-gen flash memory devices

    19 Jun 2014 | 2:36 am
    One of the problems with flash memory is that it is sensitive to defects. To solve this problem, researchers from Samsung Electronics are developing flash devices based on graphene quantum dots (GQDs). The performance of such a device is promising, with an electron density that is comparable to semiconductor and metal nanocrystal based memories. Those flash memory can also be made flexible and transparent.The researchers used GQDs in three different sizes (6, 12, and 27 nm) between silicon dioxide layers. The memory of the QDs depend on their sizes: the 12 nm dot for example offers the…
  • CNT-based NRAM may enable a universal memory

    14 Jun 2014 | 11:37 am
    Nantero has been developing NRAM (carbon nanotube based memory) for a long time, and now they collaborated with researchers from Chuo University to show how this memory features high-speed, low-power-consumption and high-reliability operation.An NRAM memory cell is made from a thin CNT film sandwiched between two metal electrodes. When voltage is applied, the CNTs come closer to each other (due to electrostatic force and intermolecular force) and the resistivity is lowered. When the voltage drops to zero, the CNTs do not separate as they are tightly attached. This creates a non-volatile…
  • Toshiba developed STT-MRAM based microprocessor cache memory

    12 Jun 2014 | 5:45 am
    Toshiba developed new STT-MRAM technology that can be used to enable MRAM based cache memory for microprocessors. The L2 cache alone uses about 80% of the power consumed by the CPU, so reducing the power consumption of the cache is very important - and STT-MRAM may reduce this consumption by about 60%. It's not clear how close is this technology to actually being commercialized.Toshiba's new STT-MRAM uses a dual-cell (2T-2MTJ) circuit in which the two MTJs have complementary resistive states (high and low resistive states). This eliminates the leak path and also increases the readout signal…

    When I first heard about Drunk Post translator, a hack created by Zantherus Community that translates otherwise sober-sounding text into drunk-sounding text, I really didn’t get the point. We want technology to help us NOT text when we are drunk, not the other way around. But I gave it a try anyway, by translating a quote by Steve Jobs. How it works is pretty simple: you enter your text, select a filter (Tipsy, Drunk, Very Drunk, or Smashed) and then translate. So when would you use this tool? Probably never, but it does make you wonder who the Zantherus Community is, doesn’t…

  • Bootstrap 3 quick fix for older Firefox versions
    29 Jun 2014 | 12:39 pm
    I recently worked on a site and used Bootstrap v3 as the framework for my grid system. As I got far into the project, the requirement for Firefox versions crept downward to version 27. My carefully constructed columns started to crumble in this version of Firefox. After a little research, it turned out that the CSS box-sizing rule for Bootstrap had dropped the ‘-moz’ prefixes. Here’s what Bootstrap had in it: * { box-sizing: border-box; } *:before, *:after { box-sizing: border-box; } To add support for the older Firefox builds, I left the official Bootstrap file alone but…

    I really enjoy Beats Music but since they have a 3 device limit, I am logged out of the app on my computer regularly. I also have Beats set up in a Fluid stand-alone app on my machine. The reason I did this is because it keeps my music playing even if I happen to restart my web browser. I can also put the Beats app I created in my doc for easy access. Unfortunately this means the app doesn’t integrate into my password storage app. This means I would have to log into it in a separate window, copy my password and paste it into the Fluid Beats app to start music.

  • Amazon’s ‘Video Shorts’ Platform Puts A Spin On YouTube’s Formula

    25 Jul 2014 | 3:12 pm
    We recently learned of Amazon‘s plan to spend a nine-figure budget on original video during Q3 2014 in hopes of competing with Netflix and its library of TV-length web content. While long-form content is at the crux of Amazon Video’s plan, the company is also dabbling in a YouTube-style short-form library. TechCrunch has discovered a webpage called ‘Video Shorts‘ that offers short-form on the Amazon platform. Amazon first announced its plan to incorporate short-form video last year, and according to TechCrunch’s information, the Video Shorts page actually…
  • Wil Wheaton Spoofs ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Reboot

    Sam Gutelle
    25 Jul 2014 | 1:31 pm
    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles‘s upcoming release has sparked a wave of interest in the heroes in a half-shell, but not everyone is on board with the new reboot. Wil Wheaton has released a new video called  “Literally Everything Else From Your Childhood: The Movie“, and it spoofs modern-day efforts to stir up 80s and 90s nostalgia. Wheaton was born in 1972, so the actor, TV host, and geek king can safely call himself an 80s kid. That designation makes him a target audience for film reboots of iconic 80s franchises, but Wheaton clearly isn’t a fan of the new versions of…

    Jerome Jarre made a name for himself as one of the first people to acquire a large following on Vine, but in recent months, he’s focused his efforts on a new platform: Snapchat. The 24-year-old Frenchman is part of a new wave that is building an online video community out of pictures and videos that disappear after a few seconds. Jarre, along with fellow Snapchatters Shaun McBride and Chris Carmichael, is the subject of a recent Time profile of the nascent Snapchat community.

So, with that established, I’d like to apologize to my church tech guys because they’ll always serve as a blog post illustration for me.

  • Bose Sues Beats For Patent Infringement

    25 Jul 2014 | 2:07 pm
    Oh c'mon, don't act surprised that Bose is suing Beats. Everyone knows that Bose has had the patent on overpriced headphones for years. Headphone and speaker maker Bose filed suit Friday against Beats, accusing the soon-to-be Apple company of infringing five patents related to noise-canceling headphones. The accused products include the Beats Studio and Studio Wireless headphones, and Bose has asked for financial damages and an injunction to ban the sale of infringing Beats products. Comments
  • BitFenix Neos Mid-Tower Chassis

    25 Jul 2014 | 2:07 pm
    If a budget case is what you desire, the crew at eTeknix say the BitFenix Neos mid-tower chassis might be just what you need. Priced at just £30 the Neos is certainly wallet friendly, but just how much you're going to get back for your money remains to be seen. There are already a few very competitive chassis on the market at this price range from Cooler Master, Cougar, Antec, even a few older NZXT ones that aren't too bad either, so I'm eager to see how a budget model from BitFenix compares to the rest of the market.

An Edgewater man taunted Anne Arundel County police on the department's official Facebook page to catch him after, they said, he violated the terms of his probation. He was placed in handcuffs within 24 hours. Comments

  • EU Regulators Want Google To Expand Right To Be Forgotten Worldwide And To Stop Telling What Links Have Been Forgotten

    Mike Masnick
    25 Jul 2014 | 12:12 pm
    We've been covering the ridiculous ruling in the EU on the "right to be forgotten," which was interpreted to mean that search engines could be forced to delete links to perfectly truthful stories (and even if those stories are allowed to be kept online). Google has been trying to comply with the over 90,000 requests it has received -- nearly half of which it has approved -- and removed from its European searches. The company has been struggling to figure out how to comply with the ruling, and those struggles continue. Originally, it was going to place a notice on search results pages where…
  • Australian Government Proposes New Copyright Law: Basically Hollywood's Wishlist

    Mike Masnick
    25 Jul 2014 | 11:04 am
    We've been covering the discussion around copyright reform down in Australia for a while, and it's continuing to get worse and worse. As you may recall, after a long and detailed process, involving careful input from a variety of stakeholders on all sides of the equation, the Australian Law Reform Commission (ALRC) came out with a set of proposals that were actually pretty good, including things like introducing fair use to Australia. Of course, rather than pay attention to this detailed and thoughtful process, the current Attorney General, George Brandis, decided to only listen to Hollywood.
  • Net Neutrality Astroturfing Stirs Up Conflict Between Latino/Minority Groups

    Mike Masnick
    25 Jul 2014 | 10:05 am
    We've written a few times about the highly cynical astroturfing practice in Washington DC, in which certain lobbyist groups basically have "deals" with certain public interest groups. The basic deal is that the lobbyists guarantee big cash donations from their big company clients, and then the lobbyists get to write letters "on behalf of" those organizations for whatever policy they want enacted (or blocked). We quoted a story from Declan McCullagh in 2008 which included this classic line from a lobbyist who worked in one of these shops: "You go down the Latino people, the deaf people, the…
  • Latest Abuse: Feds Reading Emails Between Prisoners And Their Lawyers

    Mike Masnick
    25 Jul 2014 | 9:07 am
    Another day, another story of abuse by federal prosecutors. The latest is that they're now regularly reading the emails between inmates and their lawyers. These are the kinds of things that most people believe should be part of confidential attorney-client privilege. And, for quite some time, prosecutors respected that. However, now they're claiming that since prisoners using the prison email system agree to a notice upfront saying their communications may be monitored, they gave up that right. Inmates’ calls to or from lawyers, however, are generally exempt from such monitoring. But across…
  • Epiphany: Rep. John Conyers Realizes Mid-Hearing That His Copyright Position Contradicts His Stand Against Overcriminalization

    Parker Higgins
    25 Jul 2014 | 7:46 am
    It's hard to imagine looking at the absurdly excessive copyright penalties on the books and thinking, "Hey, maybe these should be a bit higher." But Congress has shown itself to be exceedingly imaginative when it comes to cranking up copyright, so perhaps it is no surprise that in yesterday's hearing on those penalties�”covering statutory damages and criminal sanctions�”a number of witnesses and Representatives alike seemed to think that those remedies are insufficient. More surprising, though, was an unexpected moment of clarity from Michigan's Rep. John Conyers, a staple of…

The first business I built was ‘Kirstie’s Candy Corner’. It was basically a sweet shop where I created my own sherbet and sold it profitably. The only problem was that I was just seven years old!

  • 5 Effective Ways to Monetize Freemium Apps

    Raja Manoharan
    23 May 2014 | 3:21 am
    App monetization is a hot topic today. More and more app developers are finding that their users don’t want to pay to download an app – they want it free, and they’re willing to suffer through advertising and other marketing methods to get that free price point. In fact, free apps routinely outperform paid apps in all categories save a couple (business utilities and navigation). Does that mean you’re doomed never to make a profit from your efforts? Not at all. Freemium has become the new standard, and some experts expect it to account for up to 93% of the global app market in just a…
  • Top 6 Tips to Get Your Content Shared

    Mercy Livingstone

    Getting your content shared is essential for anyone engaged in online marketing of any kind. Going “viral” is the goal, but it’s harder to achieve than you might realize. Truth be told, there’s no golden rule, no magic bullet, that guarantees your content will go viral. In fact, most marketing experts have no idea why one post goes viral when another doesn’t achieve that critical mass. However, while viral spread might be the Holy Grail of online marketing, creating content that get shared is more important. You might never attain “viral” status, but good content that’s shared…

    25 Jul 2014 | 3:00 pm
    survey from market research firm VisionMobile, there are 2.9 million app developers in the world who have built about two million apps. Most of those app developers are making next to nothing in revenue while the very top of the market make nearly all the profits. Essentially, the app economy has become a mirror of Wall Street. The application store model was a good thing for a while, especially early on. Now, though, it's becoming an impediment.

    I'm lucky. My financial situation allows me to buy several phones and tablets every year to keep up with the goings-on of all the major - and some of the minor - platforms currently competing for prime real estate in your precious pockets. It also means that I am lucky from a psychological point of view - by being able to buy several devices every year, I never fall into the all-too-common trap of choice-supportive bias. I don't have to rationalise my device purchases after the fact, so I won't have to employ all sorts of mental gymnastics to solve any states of cognitive dissonance caused by…

We've put much time and effort into this project and now we've found ourselves with over 50 titles, classic and new, prepared for distribution, site infrastructure ready, support team trained and standing by, and absolutely no reason to wait until October or November. We're still aiming to have at least 100 Linux games in the coming months, but we've decided not to delay the launch just for the sake of having a nice-looking number to…

Speaking on the company's quarterly earnings call today, Nadella told analysts Microsoft will "streamline the next version of Windows from three operating systems into one single converged operating system." Describing the implications of the change, Nadella said "this means one operating system that covers all screen sizes."

    It’s all too easy to fall into bad habits at the office: browsing social media, online shopping during business hours, or maybe even sneaking glimpses of World Cup matches when you should be finishing that critical report. But what about the habits we don’t even realize we’re repeating day in and day out? These commonplace behaviors can seriously damage your chances of success, especially if you’re a member of the sales team working with large amounts of customer and prospect data.

  • Amazon’s Fire Phone, Not Very Repair Friendly

    iFixit recently tore down Amazon’s supposedly wildly innovative phone. However, they actually had quite a hard time tearing it down. The only phone that beats the Amazon Fire Phone in terms of unrepairability is the HTC One M8. That phone scored a lowly 2 in terms of repairability, but even so, Samsung’s lowest scoring phone (The Galaxy S5) still managed a score of a 5. Repairability will determine how expensive repairs for your phone will cost and whether or not you can do them yourself. On certain phones, some components are simply too bonded together or impossible to take apart…

    LG’s turnaround appears to have completed with today’s earnings results. According to LG’s very own earnings announcement for the past quarter (2Q 2014), the company shipped 14.5 million smartphones, a record high for the company. This is primarily driven by the fact that LG finally knows how to not only make a great smartphone, but also how to market it and sell it to consumers, something they kind of lacked with previous phones like the LG Optimus G and the LG G2. Both the Optimus G and G2 were fantastic devices and pretty much owned the competition whenever they were…

People cannot buy what they do not know about. We think about everything we offer, because it is our job. But our customers have their own jobs. And even if we’ve told them (repeatedly!) about the other products and services they can buy from us, they are probably not aware of them. How do we…
  • Help People, Even In Your Marketing

    Alex Goldfayn
    30 Jun 2014 | 12:23 am
    Just like your products and services, the best marketing helps people. It doesn’t pitch, propose, push, prod or promise. Rather, it demonstrates your outstanding value to your customers and prospects. It offers ideas, tools, techniques, approaches, and advice for improvement. If you sell products, help your market get the most out of them. If you sell services, teach people how to improve in your area of expertise. Think about your market: as a group, where are they falling short? What are they doing incorrectly that can be bettered? Right now, make a list of a half-dozen such areas.
  • The Personal Communication

    23 Jun 2014 | 9:54 am
    In an era of ever-expanding communications platforms and tools, the personal communication is going the way of the triceratops and the Palm Pilot.Think about it: how many personal, one-on-one emails and phone calls from do you receive in a day? For most of us, the number is dwarfed by group mailings, blasts, conference calls, and, yes, social media sharing. I like writing with fountain pens, so every week I send several hand-written personal notes. Nearly every recipient comments how nice — and rare! — it is. We’re supposed to be communicating more than ever, but…

  • Liu Yiqian: Why Is Everyone Mad At This Chinese Billionaire?

    Toni Matthews-El
    25 Jul 2014 | 6:33 pm
    People are mad at Chinese billionaire Liu Yiqian and the reason may shock you. This wealthy individual decided to splash the cash a few days ago, spending a whopping $36 million for a 500-year-old artifact. The “chicken cup” as it’s known, is one of a few precious porcelain cups that remain from the Ming Dynasty. The cup earned its name from the image of a cockerel, hen, and chicks painted onto it. This item is considered the Chinese equivalent of the holy grail. Naturally, when a man dares to drink from such a rare and highly revered item, it’s going to cause some major backlash. The…

The event took place at Shonda Rimes’, the creator of the hit show Scandal and ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy, home where Monae and Obama were just a few of the many guests in attendance.

First off, he says that the couple will be married “right by the ocean.” It will apparently be a low key affair that will take place this August. “Jennifer and Justin are getting married right by the ocean, so it will be a beach meets California modern-chic sort of thing,” Lee said. “She is going to have it out of the country.” Lee, who is close…

Thurman is hopping onto the project a bit late, principal photography has already started. The Weinstein Company recently changed the name of the film from Chef to Adam Jones, most likely because there is currently a film called Chef in theaters. Here’s the synopsis of the movie from The Hollywood Reporter: The film, which was originally titled Chef, follows a rock-star chef (Cooper) who…

    Supply chain management software is on pace to hit $10 billion in revenue this year, according to a report from Gartner. That would be an increase of 12.2% over last year, and would be the biggest growth the industry has seen since 2011. The firm surveyed nearly 450 North American supply chain professionals in the fourth quarter of 2013. Respondents said inaccurate forecasts of demand for products and variability of demand were leading obstacles impeding their progress toward achieving goals within their organizations. Gartner says both problems can be overcome with the help of supply chain…

    Keeping true to their commitment of delivering timely updates to not just the high end devices but also the budget aimed devices, Gionee has released the Android 4.4.2 update for its Gionee Elife E7 Mini. The device with the rotatable camera lens device has not really been the best seller when it comes to the lineup that Gionee has, but irrespective of that, the device follows the likes of S5.5 and Ctrl V5 to receive the update. However, there has been no official word about the update to Elife E7, which is kind of disappointing. The update to the Elife E7 Mini is not OTA unlike the update…

    I have been using the HTC M8 as my primary device for just over two months now. While the device is without a doubt, excellent and ticks most of the boxes you would want your daily driver to tick, there are a few minor things that annoy me. As revered as the build quality and designing capabilities of HTC are, they have always dropped big bombs when it comes to QC of their devices. Several of the M7 devices last year shipped with a camera lens that produced a weird purple flare when used under low lighting conditions and had an odd hairline space between the contact point where the metal and…

    Google knows there is more than one way to translate languages. That is why they created a Translate Community to enlist users’ help. The community can help create new translations as well as rate existing ones. Google is also localizing Community pages to support your preferred language display. And of course, the company also wants to hear feedback about this effort from those who choose to join. This community is related to a recent Translate update that lets you suggest a different translation to what Google has initially offered.

    Jean-Louis Gassée
    13 Jul 2014 | 9:42 am
      Satya Nadella’s latest message to the troops – and to the world – is disquieting. It lacks focus, specifics, and, if not soon sharpened, his words will worry employees, developers, customers, and even shareholders. As I puzzled over the public email Microsoft’s new CEO sent to his troops, Nicolas Boileau’s immortal dictum came to mind: Whatever is well conceived is clearly said, And the words to say it flow with ease. Clarity and ease are sorely missing from Satya Nadella’s 3,100 plodding words, which were supposed to paint a clear, motivating future for 127,000…

      By the end of 2014, many news media will collect around 50% of their page views via mobile devices. Here are trends to remember before devising a mobile strategy. (First of a two-part series.) In the news business, mobile investments are on the rise. That’s the pragmatic response to a major trend: Users shift from web to mobile. Already, all major media outlets are bracing for a momentous threshold: 50% of their viewership coming from mobile devices (smartphones and tablets). Unfortunately, the revenue stream is not likely to follow anytime soon: making users pay for mobile…
  • The Network Is the Computer: Google Tries Again

    Jean-Louis Gassée
    6 Jul 2014 | 1:29 pm
      All you need is a dumb device attached to a smart network. It’s an old idea that refuses to die despite repeated failures. Now it’s Google’s turn. In the late 1980s, Sun Microsystems used a simple, potent war cry to promote its servers: The Network Is The Computer. Entrust all of your business intelligence, computing power, and storage to Sun’s networked SPARC systems and you can replace your expensive workstation with a dumb, low cost machine. PCs are doomed. Nothing of the sort happened, of course. Sun’s venture was disrupted by inexpensive servers assembled from the PC…
  • Google might not be a monopoly, after all

      Despite its dominance, Google doesn’t fit the definition of a monopoly. Still, the Search giant’s growing disconnect from society could lead to serious missteps and, over time, to a weakened position.  In last week’s column, I opined about the Open Internet Project’s anti-trust lawsuit against Google. Reactions showed divided views of the search engine’s position. Granted, Google is an extremely aggressive company, obsessed with growth, scalability, optimization — and also with its own vulnerability. But is it really a monopoly in the traditional and historical…

    A new material structure developed at MIT generates steam by soaking up the sun. The structure — a layer of graphite flakes and an underlying carbon foam — is a porous, insulating material structure that floats on water. When sunlight hits the structure’s surface, it creates a hotspot in the graphite, drawing water up through the material’s pores, where it evaporates as steam. The brighter the light, the more steam is more

  • One-third of Doctors Recommending mHealth Apps for Their Patients

    Meghann Kiernan
    24 Jul 2014 | 10:03 pm
    Mobile apps are radically changing the way doctors and patients interact and approach healthcare. Over the last few years, several medical mobile applications were developed that offer quick access to evidence-based medical research from mobile devices. These apps are making it possible for physicians as well as patients to view x-rays, review clinical notes, track health progress and access information regarding any medical condition through major mobile platforms such as iPhone, Android, Blackberry, and Windows. Many physicians are also recognizing the positive possibilities for increased…
  • Eligibility for Health Insurance Subsidies in Question

    Natalie Tornese
    23 Jul 2014 | 1:35 am
    In the United States, under the new healthcare law about 8 million people have signed up for private health plans via health insurance exchanges. However, as per the latest reports from federal officials the eligibility of about 2 million people is still in question. The Obama administration is reaching out to hundreds of thousands of new Obamacare enrollees receiving subsidies to resolve serious questions about their eligibility, as many consumer advocates have expressed their concerns that many of them will be required to repay some or all of the subsidies.  The new step was undertaken…

    Many people have had their coverage cancelled by health insurance companies. Last October, Florida Blue cancelled the policies of more than 300,000 customers (80% of its individual plans) on the grounds that the plans did not meet the requirements of the Affordable Care Act. According to the law, policies sold in the individual market as of January 1, 2014 should have covered the following benefits: Doctor visits Emergency and hospital services Maternity and newborn care Mental health and substance abuse treatment Prescription drugs Rehabilitation Chronic disease management Laboratory work…
  • ICD-10 Delay – Its Impact on Students

    18 Jul 2014 | 3:15 am
    Healthcare providers, insurance payers and vendors aren’t the only entities that are affected by the unexpected ICD-10 delay of more than a year. Delay in implementing this coding system is detrimental also for students pursuing health information management degrees and trying to prepare for their careers. On March 31, the U.S. senate passed the “Doc Fix” bill that approved H.R. 4302, the legislation which delays the ICD-10 implementation deadline by one year to October 1, 2015. Students who have been preparing for the tenth version of codes now find themselves unable to…

    A retrospective review of the medical records of 150 cardiac patients who had deactivated their implanted electronic cardiac devices (by request) revealed that both physicians and patients are not planning ahead or including their aspirations regarding the deactivation of devices in their advance directives. This is in spite of the fact that except one, all the patients analyzed had quite poor or terminal prognosis at the time the device was deactivated. The investigation also showed that surrogates rather than the patients themselves had made half of all deactivation requests, and the…

Quick answer is NO. (Fastest) Windows with an SSD Drive: Don’t Defrag. Windows 7, 8, or Vista: It’s automatic, don’t bother.

Are you simply finding that the Apple devices are somehow just becoming more and more popular with not only the executives but also the next layers in the business? Once these devices are seen within the enterprise, it is very unlikely that the numbers will dwindle since users tend to share experiences of IT with each other and as a result the wow / cool factor of a MacBook Air and its relative simplicity of use (in the eye of the beholder) will…

    Being adept in content distribution for SCCM, we at 1E are often asked about Nomad and it’s consummate integration with SCCM; and that without the need of any additional server infrastructure. Yes! It is a serverless solution and works without any padding Admin consoles and hence lesser administration.

Once the Nomad installers for SCCM integration are installed, Nomad can easily be enabled and configured from within the SCCM console itself. Nomad can be set as a download provider via…

    I’d like to share with you all a few things that I have picked up while reviewing white papers and talking to customers regarding Software License Optimization (SLO). In short, Software Vendors are getting more aggressive when it comes to software license audits and if you fail an audit you are opening your company for the same treatment from your other vendors. Before starting at 1E, I made the assumption that major vendors audited their customers to make sure that their customer base are using the amount of licenses they have paid for, which is fair.  However there is an increasing trend…

    Clive Thompson
    22 Jul 2014 | 7:43 pm
    I recently picked up 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die. I couldn't resist the title, which so neatly refracts the gibbering cultural anxieties of lists like "1000 novels everyone must read". You see this sort of highbrow listicle often in the realms of literary fiction, movies, possibly poetry. It's classic canon panic, and I say that with a degree of charity and warmth; I actually think arguing heatedly and even snobbishly about what works of art are important and mindbending can be a lot of fun, and occasionally useful to the parties involved. But there's something hilarious and…

    That's one of the opening pages of Conjectures on Original Composition, a book about creative genius published by the English poet Edward Young in 1759. It's considered one of the first big essays to tout the idea that "originals" -- writers of deep originality -- are more important and awesome than derivative folks. I heard about Conjectures while reading a different essay this evening, and since I'm sort of obsessed with tracking the rise of our modern (and disastrous) conceit that originality is something that just kind of wells up from inside you I immediately dialed up Conjectures on…

    Yesterday I saw a picture on Boing Boing: A "behind the scenes" shot of how they made the iconic opening "crawl" text for The Empire Strikes Back. I'd always assumed, naively, that the crawl was done with computer graphics, but no: It was a steampunk affair, with the text printed on a piece of glass and filmed at a steep angle by a camera. But what really struck me was the quote from George Lucas about the formal properties of a crawl: "The crawl is such a hard thing because you have to be careful that you're not using too many words that people don't understand," Lucas has said.

    The Rise of Cloud-based APM Solutions In my last blog, I called today’s enterprise application landscape “a dog’s breakfast”1 as far as complexity and heterogeneity are concerned. A growing number of APM vendors would likely agree. Regardless of whether you are on the vendor or the consumer side, application management— as opposed to simple application monitoring— is an inherently difficult task. Perhaps for this reason, enterprise-grade Application Performance Management solutions—those capable of monitoring, correlating and triaging integrated, distributed applications while…

    Waaay back in the day (say 2002), organizations would ask themselves: “If our customer and prospect (potential customer) information is our most valuable asset, why would we EVER trust it with a 3rd party who would put it with the customer information from other companies?” Today, organizations do not hesitate to start their sales endeavors with the swipe of a credit card and the creation of a account. In fact, the concept of X-as-as-service has grown to have as many definitions as the concept of cloud computing itself. There are infrastructure-as-a-services (IaaS) that…

For those unfamiliar, service providers like AT&T and Verizon typically lock their devices so they can only be used with their service. If unlocked, phones can be taken over to other carriers. This is hugely important for promoting healthy competition and empowering consumer choice, not to mention being very useful for…

  • Yo: Is it really that simple?

    Gram Bowsher
    2 Jul 2014 | 8:22 am
    Yo: A two letter word with ambiguous origins and typically inconsequential meaning. Or is it not that simple? One of the newest trends in social media and mobile apps has been the rise of the app named after such a seemingly innocuous term. Giving users only the ability to send the word “Yo” to each other, the app has already received $1.2 million in investment and has risen to the number one in the iOS app store. The fast rise of Yo was quickly followed by an influx of hack attempts, and when a group of college students hacked into Yo’s data and were able to attain user information,…

    In an interview about his hit song Instant Karma! (We All Shine On), John Lennon was quoted as saying “the idea of instant karma was like the idea of instant coffee: presenting something in a new form.” I’m not sure what the instant coffee category was like in 1970 (it’s surprisingly difficult to dig up 44-year-old category data), but it seems that history has a way of repeating itself. Lately instant coffee seems to be in need of a shakeup, and many manufacturers are throwing their hats in the ring. According to Mintel, consumption of instant coffee is on the decline in the US.

There is no doubt that Microsoft had done a lot of work in Windows 8.1 to please tablet users. If you are a normal desktop user like me, it might seem like you have to do everything with the mouse, but that is not true. If you learn some of the basic keyboard shortcuts, I think it will be a lot easier for you to navigate around in Windows 8.1 on your laptop or desktop PC.

    Dave Paul

    Recently, Google made a major change in the way it rewarded authorship. Previously, author portraits were displayed next to any search results tied to a Google+ account. Google took away these portraits with no warning, leaving only a small tagline with the author’s name. While authors may not be pleased, marketers should be. And poof! Google made my author photo vanish into thin air — Cyrus Shepard (@CyrusShepard) June 27, 2014 As discussed last week, this doesn’t change the importance of authorship in the age of content.

    We’ve all heard the phrase “content is king.” The past several years have seen an accelerating trend where search engines reward high-quality, valuable content. That trend definitely won’t reverse anytime soon, but it is taking an interesting twist: If Google’s newest changes are any clue, it’s not the content that’s king but the content creators. And just because your site releases great content doesn’t make you a content creator. It’s the individual authors that Google is increasingly shining the spotlight on, not the companies or entities that publish their work. That…

One of my fellow passengers on the commute from Tenement in C-5 to the MRT/LRT station in Pasay City along the East Service road was an old man and a senior citizen. The driver of the jeep was a decade younger than him, I think. For the purposes of this post, I’d refer to the passenger as ‘Manong senior citizen‘ and the driver as ‘Manong Drayber‘. Yes, I need to work on better references. It all started when…

    Janet Napoles as a State witness?! It’s like pardoning the Marcoses of all their crimes against the Filipino people, letting them keep their stolen wealth and even proclaiming them as the first Royal family of the Philippines. It’s like telling all the farmers to give up their rightful claims on Hacienda Luisita and adorn the Cojuancos for their benevolence. It’s like telling Editha Burgos that she should trust the AFP are telling the truth and would help them find her still missing son Jonas Burgos. It’s like telling the victims of human rights abuses, some of which…
  • Windows Phone 8.1 – Microsoft edges Google & Apple over transparency

    5 Apr 2014 | 2:00 pm
    Windows Phone 8.1 is slated for release in a month or two and while there’s not much fanfare over it as compared to new releases of Android and iOS, Microsoft has gathered enough attention to keep the whole world interested. A list of features of Windows Phone 8.1 can be found here, one of the highlights of which is Cortana – Microsoft’s version of a digital personal assistant like Google Now for Android and Siri for iOS. There’s nothing groundbreaking with Cortana in terms of what it can do. However, the most interesting bit is how it is the most transparent to…
  • Slow internet speeds for most of April

    Julius Rocas
    4 Apr 2014 | 7:46 am
    The last time there was a major slow down of internet speed in the country was back in December of 2006 when an earthquake that struck off the coast of Taiwan damaged major undersea cables that provide connectivity to the country. With incidents like these, even the biggest ISPs like PLDT and Globe were at the mercy of international groups that maintain the undersea cable connections’ ability to repair the damage. The recent damage hit the undersea cables lying in areas between Taiwan and Japan, and China and Korea. Latest reports say that repairs are expected to be completed by around…

    Facebook drove nearly one-quarter of all Web traffic in June while other social networks experienced significant drops, says new report. Facebook still reigns supreme as the top driver of social referrals, despite news feed algorithm changes that caused some brands’organic reach to plummet.

Facebook was the only social network to post an increase in social media traffic referrals, according to data from Shareaholic, which took into account more than 300,000 sites and more than 400 million…
  • CIO-CMO Relationship: Plagued By Digital Pretenders

    InformationWeek Blog
    24 Jul 2014 | 11:59 am
    Digital strategies that focus only on customer engagement are shallow. But to go deeper, CIOs and CMOs must be partners. For many companies these days, “digital” is almost exclusively about customer engagement, the domain of the CMO. However, the CIO is crucial in linking business processes and enterprise information to the digital channels that achieve the always-on state that customers and employees demand. The strength of the CIO-CMO relationship has never been more vital to a company’s success, yet the confusion surrounding these roles in the digital enterprise has never…

  • The Hiring Big Bang Theory Part III: Don't Leave Them Hanging

    Nate DaPore
    17 Jul 2014 | 12:04 pm
    We all know the feeling. You apply for a job, and wait, and wait...and wait some more. You’re wondering if the company received your application, if you’re in the running for the job or just downright out for the count. No one likes to be in limbo during the hiring process. It’s often a full-time job looking for a job, so not knowing where you stand is just straight up frustrating. Jeff Hayden, owner of Blackbird Media, struck a nerve when he recently posted on LinkedIn an article titled “The Worst Hiring Mistake Any Company Can Make.” Jeff argued that failing to follow up and…

    If you’re like most business folks I talk to, finding and holding on to great people is one of your toughest challenges. Let’s be honest. Work isn’t always fun. It’s called “work” for a reason. Most people spend at least a quarter of their time at work every week. And that’s exactly why it’s so important to embrace what makes your company special and let your culture shine. We all know referrals are one the best recruitment avenues, and nothing says “come join our team” like a team member raving about why he or she loves working there. Last week I talked about getting…

    No recuerdo cuánto tiempo ha pasado desde que Apple lanzó su último comercial del MacBook Air, pero el día de ayer lanzaron uno nuevo, titulado como ‘Stickers’ o ‘Vinilos’ en español, y que resulta interesante por varias razones. Para empezar, este es el primer anuncio de la historia reciente que no muestra la pantalla de un producto de Apple. No estoy seguro de lo que eso significa, tal vez nada, pero visualmente resulta interesante. Pero no sólo no presentan la pantalla del MacBook Air en ningún momento, sino que se hace hincapié en la fiabilidad del MacBook Air, mostrando…

    Business & IT Strategy We hear it almost every day, IT Strategy, Business Strategy, strategic customer accounts, strategic widgets, etc. Strategy is applied to so many areas and so many things that the word has almost become meaningless.  The term “strategy” has become trite because it is used so much with so little understanding.

    In House vs. Outsource Business today is looking for a way to provide shareholder value.  Outsourcing has become one of the latest “crazes” to boost stock values because shareholders believe it will reduce costs.  While your share price may increase in the short term, you may not see the cost savings and your share price will suffer later as your cost basis increases. It is sad that the cost saving “dream” presented during all those sales pitches often become a “nightmare” of spiraling costs and management headaches.  If you go into your outsourcing…

With some background understanding (and a lot of due diligence) you can avoid most of those rocks and navigate these waters. It does take work, work that your outsourcing vendor will never tell you.

The less aggressive you are with your outsourcing management the more profitable you are to the outsourcing company. Does fallout mean you will be in court? Sometimes yes, but sometimes it means re-negotiating a contract or, worse still, skyrocketing costs which can exceed the original costs that were replaced. Outsourcing Relationship or Arrangement The sales personnel for outsourcing will push the idea of…

    Its designation being a reference to its maliciousness (malicious intent), “malware” is essentially software that’s been designed for nefarious purposes, either to disrupt someone’s computer system or glean some type of information from it.  Part of the problem with malware of course is that it often remains largely invisible and/or infiltrates a machine by tagging onto seemingly innocuous programs.  Quite obviously it’s always a good idea to get rid of any and all malware as soon as possible or even better, try to prevent it from actually getting onto your system in the first…

  • Book Review : Train To Pakistan

    Harish Krishna
    13 Jul 2014 | 4:33 am
    Books are the human’s best companions. That was well said. Books are for me as important as my clothing, my shelter and my food. Many times I have read books to wasting away time. But some books prove just more than just the time factor. They instil some positive impact in me. They change my perception towards few stereotypes and misconceptions. They as a whole affect me. One such book is Train to Pakistan by our very own controversial author Khushwant Singh. His controversial style of writing is well known. Yet he never cares. He doesn’t bother what critics say. He writes what he feels.

  • Researchers Print Electronic Memory On Paper

    25 Jul 2014 | 2:37 am
    Electronics printed on paper are cheap, flexible, and recyclable. And they could lead to applications such as smart labels on foods and pharmaceuticals or as wearable medical sensors. Many engineers have managed to print transistors and solar cells on paper. But printing "memory" of smart device on a paper was missing. Now a group of researchers from Taiwan has developed a method that uses ink-jet technology to print working memory on an ordinary paper. One challenge of using paper as a base for electronic memory is that, because it’s made of fibers, it is very rough and porous on a…

The general concept is that a Bash alias doesn’t accept parameters itself but it can call a function which does. g++ compiler alias I build my C++ source files with g++ -Wall -O3 foo.cpp -o foo.

This is a huge and remarkable breakthrough in the AI front. The Turing Test is a test of a machine’s ability to exhibit intelligent behaviour equivalent to, or indistinguishable from, that of a human. It is, essentially, a conversation between three parties—Player A (human,) Player B (machine,) and Player C (human)—which are separated from one another. If the judge (Player A) cannot reliably tell the machine…

  • AWS Revenue Slip?

    Joe Kinsella
    25 Jul 2014 | 4:46 am
    I recently noticed several bloggers announcing a dramatic slip in the Amazon cloud business based on a drop in revenue of the infamous Other category. While deducing AWS revenue from changes to the Other category is an inexact science, it is the best we have until Amazon choose to break out AWS as a line of business in their SEC filings. It's true the torrid end of 2013 growth of the Other catgeory ($960M in Q3 to $1170M in Q4) flattened in Q1 2014 (+3% to $1204M), before declining in Q2 (-3% to 1168M). But before everyone makes sweeping generalizations of what this means to Amazon's cloud…

    The other night while on the Cape with family, we got to telling travel stories. I've collected a fair number of travel stories over the years - including my recent experience being towed down a busy sidewalk in downtown Seattle. But this is one I had almost forgotten. A few years ago I was traveling to a customer site in Minnesota. My flight arrived late and I dragged myself to the rental car agency hoping to get a car as quickly as possible. But due to the late hour, there was a limited availability of cars, and so the agency decided to upgrade me to a luxury car. I forget the exact model,…
  • The Agility Volume Knob

    Joe Kinsella

    I like to think I’m an Agile Pragmatist in a world of Agile Fundamentalists. I believe there is no single framework / process that is a panacea to the various issues within a software development organization, and instead processes must be adapted to fit the specific needs of a business, its customers, product, team and code base. For me defining the right agile process is like the test an eye doctor gives you (“is this better or worse? is this better or worse?”). Rather than prescriptive adherence to a framework, I like to borrow freely from the rich mulch pile of software development…
  • Denying Destructive Privileges in AWS

    Joe Kinsella
    12 Jul 2014 | 11:39 am
    I had mentioned in What To Do In Response To Code Spaces the importance of locking down your service-based IAM users to least privilege access. For example, if a service pushes a backup to S3, its IAM privileges should be scoped to write-only for the specified bucket. If a service is responsible for deleting expired snapshots, it's privileges should be scoped to only listing and deleting snapshots. But if your environment is even moderately complex, there is a good chance this auditing will take some time. To minimize exposure in the interim, I decided to create a quick and dirty…

    From the first day I was responsible for cloud infrastructure, I couldn’t help but feel the responsibility of the potential downside impact of running a business in the cloud. The most powerful attributes of the cloud - dynamic infrastructure, APIs, automation - make it possible for very bad things happen with a few lines of code and/or clicks of a mouse. But while I had always considered hijacking a real possibility, the story of Code Spaces last month still left me stunned. Below is a short recap for anyone who missed it: On June 17th, Code Spaces, a New Jersey-based maker of development…

    If you’re involved in the startup world in San Francisco you’ve likely been to the Creamery on Townsend and 4th street. It’s iconic, even if only recently so. In 2012 I wrote about the Creamery in a post talking about the shift in startups from the Palo Alto area to San Francisco, noting that “CrunchFund has probably closed (meaning the verbal agreement part) more deals there than anywhere else.” Other press cemented the cafe’s reputation as the place to do business.
