    Apple’s recent earning report was spectacular. The company sold 74.5 million iPhones in the last quarter and had $18 billion in profits, setting a record in both categories. Most of the revenue and profit came from the iPhone which has clearly become Apple’s cash cow. But it begs an important question or two. The first has to do with the ability to sustain growth with the iPhone and to continue to have strong profits from this product. The second has to do with the three legged stool metaphor in which Apple has three legs with the iPhone, iPad and Macs yet only one continues to…

This type of system heats oil that is flowing through the pipe. The oil is hot and that is why it is used to boil water to power a steam generator which in turns powers electricity. The reason that this system works so well is because the U-shaped mirrors attracts and collects the suns heat which is then…

     One year after founding anonymish app Secret with fellow Googler David Byttow, Chrys Bader-Wechseler is leaving the company on amicable terms. He cites that Secret isn’t about design and curation as much now since it redesigned recently, dropping the artful photo squares with overlaid text in favor of a sterile text feed that looks just like competitor Yik Yak.

    7 Jan 2015 | 10:24 pm
    By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) I gotta be honest with you. I follow way too many people on Twitter. 8,754, to be precise. It may be worth writing a post about the different reasons I follow different people. Some I follow out of curiosity, some out of courtesy, and others, I have absolutely no idea how, when, or why I started following. Then there is the occasional gem. There are the select few people that totally make my Twitter experience. People like Elon Musk,  Marc Andreessen, some tech journalists, and at the top of the list, alongside these greats, is Hunter Walk. Besides his…
  • An Interview with Saul Singer, Co-Author of the Book ‘Startup Nation’ and One of Israel’s Greatest Thinkers

    Over the years, I have done quite a few killer interviews and I am very proud of the long list. Having said that, the opportunity to have interviewed Saul Singer is definitely at the top of my list. If you are not familiar (how are you not familiar?), Saul wrote the book “Startup Nation” along with his brother in law, Dan Senor. Saul has been a journalist for many years, and has been a thought-leader to the Israeli tech scene through his global tours, speaking engagements, and contributions to leading and influential publications across the web and print.

  • An Interview with Tomer Sharon, Senior User Experience Researcher at Google about UX, Mobile, and Life at Google

    A few weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to visit an old friend at Google, NY. Now why is that interesting? Because I call Tomer “An old friend” despite the fact that I had never met him. “Wow, you have a strange definition of friend” is probably what you’re thinking. Could very well be, but if you think about the nature of friendship, you will quickly realize that a friend is someone you learn from, someone you share experiences with, and someone you respect and, well, like. Such is Tomer. I have been following Tomer for years on the social web and consistently…

The tech blogs that consistently put out top-notch work and do it without the need for stupid blogger politics, or an ego the size of south america.

The Beijing Times newspaper discovered that a district police department's Web site had a purchase order for surveillance software: Beijing Times found the purchase order on the website of the Wenzhou district police department, took a screen capture of the order, and posted it on social media with a brief explanation of its origins. The purchase order includes two items: software for injecting trojans onto mobile phones, and a trojan for spying…

    The MPAA. Usually that's all I'd have to say and then we could all have good combo laugh/cry over exactly how cartoonishly dickish an organization could be. But now it's entered the realm of alcohol, where trademark silliness is all too prevalent. But if any of those previous stories looked petty, the pure petty stones on these MPAA folks will astound you. Yes, it has come to this: a craft brewery has been forced to change the name of its celebrated "Rated R" beer brand. This, people, is as stupid as it gets.

    There are many, many studies on creativity and possible ways to improve the creative output of a group. Monetary incentives are often presented as a way to get people to produce more ideas, but some studies show that money isn't actually a great motivator. Obviously, there are a lot of factors that can influence how creative people are, but it would be nice to isolate a few and see if we can eliminate some practices that are downright detrimental to creativity. It would be great if we found out what really could inspire people, but maybe we shouldn't put too much pressure on the…

    The FBI, along with seemingly every law enforcement agency in the country, wants a backdoor into every new, encrypted-by-default cellphone, arguing that without this, the "bad guys" will win the "tech arms race." The DOJ cited this same "arms race" in its (losing) argument against a warrant requirement for cellphone searches. To hear law enforcement tell it, today's criminals are racing far ahead of today's under-equipped cops, who are stymied by their billions of federal drug-chasing dollars, automatic license plate readers, warrantless GPS tracking, building interior-scanning radar devices…
  • FCC Redefines Broadband As 25 Mbps, Angering Broadband Industry Perfectly Happy With Previous, Pathetic Standard

    Karl Bode

    For a few months now, the FCC has been hinting that it was preparing to raise the base definition of broadband, and now it has officially made it happen. Voting 3-2 along party lines (because having goals is a partisan issue, you know), the agency declared that we're officially raising the standard definition of broadband from 4 Mbps down, 1 Mbps up to 25 Mbps down, 3 Mbps up. That means, with the flip of a pdf announcement (pdf), millions of you technically no longer have broadband. In fact, with the FCC's decision the number of unserved broadband households has jumped from around 6% to…

    3 Jan 2015 | 5:38 pm
    Over the past year I’ve run over 800 miles and raced three half marathons, three challenging trail races over 11 miles long and in several 5ks. I also dedicated a lot of training time to increasing my climbing and logged over 24,000 feet in elevation gain. I trained on several mountain ranges in Southern California and feel like I can knock out a half marathon run at any time, so I did. It’s been a couple of weeks since running the Santa To The Sea Half Marathon in Oxnard on Dec. 18. I was excited to tackle the course and try to set a PR for the half. The flat as a pancake course…

    After tackling the XTERRA Point Mugu 18K Trail Race in October, I decided to do the Santa to the Sea Half Marathon in December next. But that left me with two months without races and I got impatient. I was looking through my timeline on the Strava site when I saw that tri-athlete Anthony Grey was in his last weeks of training for the Surfer’s Point Full Marathon. After that I signed up for the half marathon or the race to be held on Nov. 16, 2014. One of the features of the race is that when you cross the finish line you get a nice beer and some real tacos.

The race took place today, October 12, 2014, at Point Mugu State Park in Malibu, just a few miles south of Oxnard. It’s been a year and a half since I first started my fitness journey and about a year since running became a big part of that trek. My first trail race was the XTERRA Malibu Creek 22K which was extremely challenging, so much so that I immediately signed up for the Bulldog 25K which pretty…

After doing the XTERRA Malibu Creek Challenge 22K race in May, I had started eyeing the Bulldog race and immediately started training for it. I took a bit of circuitous route though, doing a series of 5K races including the Father’s Day 5K race and three of the fun “Boogie Nights” 5K races that were held on Wednesday afternoons near Surfer’s Point in Ventura. The other element that I added was some comprehensive trail running. Between May and August…

I finally decided on running my first 5K race, the inaugural Father’s Day 5K 10K Race in Ventura on June 15. This race had a couple of appealing aspects – it had a beach cruiser giveaway and the course happens to be on one of my favorite training routes. I also liked the idea of doing a 5K run to determine my “5K pace” which is helpful for planning workouts. For example, if I’m doing a certain type of interval run I can determine the pace based on an actual 5K…

The i8 looks like a Hot Wheels car, handles like a supercar and is as expensive as a high-end Porsche. With a starting price of $135,000, this isn’t the car for everyone. It’s actually a gateway into BMW’s other hybrid, the cute and cheap BMW i3, a… Read More
  • Apple’s iPhone 6 Success Is Mostly Android’s Loss, Giving iPhone Plenty Of Room To Grow

    Darrell Etherington
    29 Jan 2015 | 8:10 am
     Apple’s newest iPhone customers aren’t just old customers upgrading older devices – in fact, the vast majority are migrating from other platforms. Apple CEO Tim Cook told the Wall Street Journal in an interview that a large percentage of consumers buying iPhones lately are coming from devices that aren’t iPhones, and that most of those are shifting over from Android.… Read More

     Lego is no stranger to building epic sets as tie-ins timed with the release of big movies, but the upcoming SHIELD Helicarrier set (via Wall Street Journal) might take the cake in terms of scale. Lego’s version of the floating command and control vessel used by Marvel’s fictional global super spy and defence agency is made up of just under 3,000 pieces, and includes small… Read More

  • Alleged Canon 5Ds Photos And Specs Leaked

    Tyler Lee
    30 Jan 2015 | 2:21 am
    With the Canon 5D MK II being discontinued, Canon launched the 5D MK III, but even then that was almost three years ago which means that it probably wouldn’t come as a complete shock if Canon had a newer 5D camera in the works. In fact thanks to recently leaked specs and an image from Digicame-Info (via Canon Watch), we could be getting our first look at the new Canon DSLR.The camera, if the rumors and image are to be believed, will not be called the Canon 5D MK IV. Instead the camera will be known as the Canon 5Ds and there will also be a variant called the Canon 5Ds R. Unless these are…
  • LG G4 Could Come With A 3K Display [Rumor]

    Tyler Lee
    30 Jan 2015 | 2:20 am
    The LG G3 was one of the first mainstream branded Android phones to make it onto the market with a QHD display which was actually pretty impressive. It also set the tone for phones that were released after it which we saw happen in the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and the Google Nexus 6, so could LG be looking to set a new standard with the LG G4?According to MyLGPhones, they were sent in a tip by one of their tipsters who pointed them at the LG User Agent Profile. According to the UAProf, it mentions a certain device that goes by the model number LG-VS999 and according to the data, it will come…

    So now that Lenovo officially owns Motorola Mobility, it doesn’t really come as a surprise that they would try to shift some of Motorola’s efforts over to China, but hopefully Lenovo recognizes that not only is China a potentially huge market for Motorola, but that they not forget that India is just as big.According to a recent report from The Economic Times of India, it seems that Motorola is doing pretty well for themselves in the country as they have managed to sell 3 million smartphones since February 2014 last year. Does that come as a surprise? Hardly. You might recall that last…

    Remember back in the day of the feature phone where Bluetooth, WiFi, and GPS were considered luxuries? Nowadays just about every smartphone has such features and to not have these features would certainly raise a couple of eyebrows. However while most of us would turn our noses at these feature phones, there is a market out there for such devices – the drug dealing market.In a recent story run by Vice, it turns out that phone of choice for drug dealers is none other than the Nokia 8210 feature phone. Of course back in the day, the Nokia 8210 was considered one of the more premium…
  • ZTE Blade L3 Has Been Launched

    Just the other day ZTE launched the ZTE Blade S6 and if you thought that was all the company had up their sleeves, think again because it looks like ZTE has since announced the ZTE Blade L3. However unlike the ZTE Blade S6, the ZTE Blade L3 will come with some pretty low-end specs, which we guess is great for the budget shopper.So what are we looking at? The phone will feature a 5-inch qHD 960×540 display. It will be powered by a 1.3GHz MediaTek quad-core processor and will be accompanied by 1GB of RAM, which we guess should be good enough to get the job done, but if you’re looking for…

    29 Jan 2015 | 2:00 pm
    To some people, a keyboard is just a keyboard. But they may be the same type who can pick any random mechanical pencil off of retail peg-hooks and feel completely satisfied. I don’t know how to do that, since even mechanical pencils are tools in my eyes. And any tools I use – knives for the kitchen, trimmers for the backyard, or keyboards for writing/gaming – are carefully chosen for the long-term. It all comes down to personal choice and what feels best. Since I spend much time typing every day, a keyboard is pretty important to me. So let me tell you what a huge deal it is to have a…

    Just when we were ready to hail Samsung’s return to form in the low-cost Android smartphone space, the oft-rumored Galaxy J1 timidly broke cover in Malaysia, shattering sweet dreams and debunking wishful speculation. Basically, Sammy merely changed the name of its latest budget contender, ditching fancy monikers like Young or Star, and keeping around the underwhelming nature of an uber-feeble Moto E rival. Forget rival, the J1 can’t even… Continue reading Samsung Galaxy J1 goes official with humbler-than-expected internals Related posts: Samsung Galaxy S5 expected on at least six US…

  • SpaceX Video Stirs Excitement for Falcon Heavy

    Richard Adhikari
    29 Jan 2015 | 2:02 pm
    SpaceX on Thursday released a computer-generated animation demonstrating how the three Falcon 9 cores of its Falcon Heavy rocket, scheduled for launch later this year, would return to Earth. The boosters would land vertically at a selected site. The Falcon Heavy will be the most powerful rocket in the world, being able to lift more than 53 metric tons, or 117,000 pounds, into low earth orbit. That's equivalent to a Boeing 737 fully loaded with passengers, crew, luggage and fuel, and it is more than twice the payload of the next closest operational space vehicle, the Delta IV Heavy.

    Canada's spy agency, the Communications Security Establishment, has been eavesdropping on 102 free file upload sites, including Sendspace, Rapidshare and Megaupload, which has been shut down. A CSE program called "Levitation" lets analysts access information on 10-15 million uploads and downloads of files from such sites daily, according to documents released by whistle-blower Edward Snowden. Levitation can monitor downloads across Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and North America.

    Patches for GHOST, a critical vulnerability in glibc, the Linux GNU C Library, now are available through vendor communities for a variety of Linux server and desktop distributions. Qualys earlier this week reported its discovery of GHOST, a vulnerability that allows attackers to remotely take control of an entire system without having any prior knowledge of system credentials. Qualys security researchers found the GHOST flaw and worked closely with Linux distribution vendors in a coordinated effort to develop a patch for all affected systems.
  • Tech-Savvy Cubans Build Their Own Private Internet

    Richard Adhikari
    28 Jan 2015 | 1:22 pm
    Because Cuba's government makes it difficult for all but a handful of Cubans to access the Internet, people in Havana and other parts of the country reportedly have linked thousands of PCs to create an informal network known as "StreetNet," or "SNet" for short. The network was built with commercially available equipment. The PCs are connected by WiFi antennae and Ethernet cables strung across streets and over rooftops. SNet's main uses appear to be sharing gossip and news, accessing popular TV shows and movies, and playing online games.
  • POS Terminals Rich Vein for Gold-Digging Hackers

    John P. Mello Jr.
    28 Jan 2015 | 7:32 am
    Hackers are like gold miners. Once they find a rich vein for their malware, they mine it until it's dry. Point-of-sale terminals are such a vein. Following the success of the Target breach in 2013, the hacker underground was quick to rush more POS malware to market. "Attackers have recognized that the physical point-of-sale terminal is a new viable soft target," said Christopher Budd, threat communications manager at Trend Micro. "So we saw an increase in interest in malware that targets that."

    When it comes to patching vulnerabilities, Oracle does nothing small. In its latest quarterly CPU (Critical Patch Update), the database giant hands its customers 169 new security fixes affecting many products. The full patch matrix is here. SiliconANGLE offers a decent analysis of the vulnerabilities and patches. From Maria Deutscher’s report: One flaw that drew an outsized amount of attention is a misconfiguration affecting the enterprise technology stalwart’s popular E-Business Suite, which “gobsmacked” its discoverer, in his own words.

    Last week I wrote about the new anti-hacking laws President Obama plans to float in his State of the Union address and how the proposals are Draconian at best. I noted that it’s in our power to educate the masses and stop this thing before it becomes law. To that end, I have something to share with you. Derek Watson — better known in the security community as Blak Dayz (blakdayz) — posted the following call to action: Hackers. It’s time to UNITE.

    Bill Brenner
    15 Jan 2015 | 2:19 pm
    There’s much alarm in the security community over new anti-hacking laws President Obama plans to float in his State of the Union address next week. The alarm is justified. What he proposes, as my friend Rob Graham (@ErrataRob) wrote in this important post, “are blunt political solutions which reflect no technical understanding of the problem.” Obama’s proposed anti-hacking laws are designed to arm companies with legal protections for sharing information with each other and the government about hacking threats. The President believes it’s necessary to help prevent…

    9 Jan 2015 | 5:22 am
    For the last few years I’ve been praising Microsoft for taking great strides to improve security. This morning, I’m tempted to take it all back. For the last decade, Microsoft has issued advance notifications the Thursday before each security patch release. It’s been a valuable service, helping IT security practitioners to be better prepared. Yesterday, the software giant announced it was ending the service, claiming that not enough people are using it. It’s a bad move that comes on the heels of other bad moves, which includes slashing a lot of good security talent in…

    I know. In other news, the sky is blue, water is wet, and Gwyneth Paltrow’s not a reliable source of medical advice. I don’t think anyone’s likely to faint with surprise that binge-watching shows (on TV or via services like Netflix and Amazon Prime) has been linked to feeling low. But there’s been little research until now that proves there’s a connection. Yoon Hi Sung, Eun Yeon Kang, and Wei-Na Lee from the University of Texas surveyed 316 people aged 18-29 about how often they watched TV (on any device), how often they binge-watched, and how often they felt lonely, depressed, and…

The phone comes with a 4.3-inch 480p display, a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, microSD expansion, dual SIM, an 1,850 mAh battery, a 2MP front camera, a 5MP rear camera, and runs on Android KitKat. Looks like the leak was fairly accurate then, even if it did overstate the power of the processor and the amount of RAM.

  • The first Surface Pro 4 rumours emerge – two screen sizes?

    When Microsoft launched the Surface Pro 3 last summer, it was a breath of fresh air – and was perhaps the first decent attempt at a laptop/tablet hybrid (the first two Surface devices weren’t great). Six months on though and we’re hearing rumours of what we can expect from the Surface Pro 4. According to TechieNews, the new devices will come in two variations: 12.9″ (same as the SP3) and a new, larger 14″ iteration. On the inside we can expect a 2160×1440 screen, 16GB of RAM and apparently up to 1TB in storage space. And of course, it will run full Windows…

    BT has announced plans to roll out its “G.Fast” broadband technology, which could see speeds rocket up to 1000Mbps – up from a maximum of about 80Mbps now. According to ISP Review, the new service will be faster as it will replace the current “Fibre to the cabinet” technology – in that your connection is sent over a fibre optic line to the green box at the end of your street, before switching to copper wires to get into your house. The new “G.Fast” tech apparently works in a similar way, but because it uses a different set of transmission…

  • Definitive proof that The Simpsons is getting worse

    James O'Malley
    29 Jan 2015 | 11:22 am
    It’s almost a law of the internet that any discussion about The Simpsons will inevitably turn into a discussion of when The Simpsons stopped being good. For the first decade, it was some of the finest television ever made – and yet now, 25 years on each new episode feels more and more like they’re going through the motions because they don’t know how to do anything else. Brilliantly, coder Kevin Wuhoo has come up with a way to quantify this decline – he’s created a website that will take the IMDB scores of individual episodes of a series and chart them on a…

Tor has been in the news recently, and I've had a ton of people ask me about how safe it is to use, so I figured one click-bait headline is as good as another in having an open and honest discussion about Tor. First, let's be transparent. Tor - not unlike the…

    There's a point here about heartbleed and security — I promise. Keep with me. As I am wont to once the weather finally begins to coöperate, I've been trying a few new things out on the grill. When I'm in this exploratory phase, I love digging through the infinitely interesting BBQ blogs of the Internet - they're full of hard-won knowledge about fire and smoke, but often lack a certain level of technical polish. Case in point, my reference blog for this week's experiment was a well-seasoned old blog, but they'd lost every single comment from years of discussions. Why? No technical glitch,…

    Senator Cruz's office's response to my personal note about surveillance I sent as part of TheDayWeFightBack: Thank you for sharing your thoughts regarding the National Security Agency's surveillance program. Input from fellow Texans significantly informs my decision-making and empowers me to better represent the state. During my time in the Senate, I have consistently reiterated my support of programs that can detect impending threats to our homeland or diplomatic and military facilities abroad. It is imperative, however, that we strike an appropriate balance between remaining vigilant…

    7 Jan 2015 | 7:34 pm
    During a Reddit AMA earlier this week, Elon Musk said he hopes to announce his Mars transport system plans. As you’d expect, I’m incredibly excited about this. We are still obviously a long ways away from the first manned mission to Mars, but there is finally substantive work being done to get us there. Of course, NASA announced late last year that the Orion space capsule is a part of their plan toward a manned mission to Mars, which is terribly exciting. Humans conducting experiments on Mars and exploring the planet is something I hope to see before I die. But Musk and SpaceX, I…

    29 Sep 2014 | 6:02 pm
    After China placed limitations on candidates for Hong Kong’s city leader, Hong Kong erupted in protest. This, of course, presents a large challenge to Xi Jinping and the PRC. Edward Wong and Chris Buckley write for the Times: China’s Communist Party has ample experience extinguishing unrest. For years it has used a deft mix of censorship, arrests, armed force and, increasingly, money, to repress or soften calls for political change. But as he faces massive street demonstrations in Hong Kong pressing for more democracy in the territory, the toolbox of President Xi Jinping of China…

    The phone dominates your attention. For nearly every use, the phone has your undivided attention. Browsing the web, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, watching video, reading, messaging—all require focus on a screen that fills your vision, your primary attention, and generally some kind of interaction. Everything else, too, is always a home button or notification-tap away at all times. Is that a shock when the phone is the single gateway to nearly everything? The PC is now for doing work, but the phone is for messaging, taking photos, sharing them, the web, Twitter, Facebook, finding places to…

  • Ex-CEO of Opera Launches Vivaldi – A Powerful Browser for Power Users

    27 Jan 2015 | 7:56 am
    Opera Software has always had a fairly sizeable and loyal fan base. The decades old browser never quite went mainstream, at least not on the desktop, but it attracted droves of power users thanks to its innovative streak and host of unique features. However, with its switch to the Chromium engine, Opera ditched almost everything that made it unique, and in the process disappointed most of its power users. It has gone from being a cutting-edge internet suite to a light-weight Chrome shell. There are still many users who use Opera 12 – released over two years ago, as their daily driver.

    Bing Pulse, the real-time viewer polling and feedback tool from Bing, is going to be part of CNN and MSNBC’s coverage of the upcoming State of the Union address by United States President Mr Barack Obama. The way it worked in the past is analysts and pundits across networks and publications would try to make sense of the variety of feedback channels they get their data from, and then try to provide the updates to the viewers. Naturally that took some time and the final analyses would take hours and days, if not weeks. Instead, Bing Pulse will enable MSNBC and CNN to provide real-time…

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

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…

  • Netflix Canada Has Less Content Than in US, Yes – But It's Better Quality

    29 Jan 2015 | 9:49 pm
    There's no denying Canadians have less content to watch on Netflix than in the US. But things may not be quite so grim as we like to believe. Yes, we have less content—about half as much, in fact. But we also have more content than the UK, or Brazil, or any other country in the world besides America. Moreover, the quality of our content is argubaly the highest in the world: we have lots of hit TV shows and movies that the US subscribers don't actually have access to. Data from Netflixable, first published by the Toronto Star, is the strongest evidence of this yet. The data shows, for…

  • TeamSnap Assists League and Club Organizers With All-Star Communication and Management Tools

    29 Jan 2015 | 4:08 pm
    For the longest time, team sports have had reputations as being poorly organized. It was not because the coaches were incompetent or because the players were disorganized; it was because there was a lack of easy-to-use tools. In addition, the market for communication, management, and scheduling apps is as crowded as a defensive zone in the forth quarter. TeamSnap, an application designated for teams and clubs management, has a simple philosophy to break away: elite customer service and great user experience. Team communication is paramount, whether it’s on the field, on the rink, or…

    Canadians pay some of the highest fees in the world for financial services and new data released by Wealthsimple indicates that they are also burdened by lengthy transfer out times.  The technology-driven investment manager examined hundreds of accounts and found that some funds were received in as little as five days—while others took almost two months. Canadian financial institutions have the technology required to transfer funds out of a client’s account in a timely matter, but they end up dragging their heels, according to Wealthsimple.

    Back in November 2014, CBS announced its plan to launch a free yet ad-supported, 24-hour news channel called CBSN. The cable network now has some exciting statistics to show off from its digital news initiative, including the fact one-third of all CBSN’s tuned-in consumers watch the channel on a big screen via a connected TV or by way of a set-top box. According to International Business Times, CBS had no idea so many viewers would prefer to watch CBSN on their TVs. “While we knew that connected TV devices would be important drivers of usage for CBSN, we didn’t anticipate just…

In a guest column on Variety, Wojcicki expresses her desire for traditional media creators to learn how to effectively use Google’s online video site within their own industries. Wojcicki urges creators within TV, film, and other forms of more established media to start considering different ways to incorporate YouTube into their business models. YouTube’s CEO says that while TV and YouTube are essentially both video, their formats and purposes differ, which makes the two media…

    Eight months after it first announced its plan to split revenue with YouTubers who play its games, Nintendo has launched its Creators Program in beta. Thanks to the new program, Nintendo will give creators the majority of revenue on all relevant videos. The Creators Program includes two separate services for creators. Some gamers will use the program to monetize individual videos that feature Nintendo content. On those videos, creators will earn 60% of ad revenue. The second option turns Nintendo into an MCN of sorts; creators have the option to set up channels dedicated to Nintendo games,…

    [This is a sponsored post from DialMyCalls.com.] It is not surprising that religious institutions have been the most reluctant in entering this new technological age. With tried and true methods that have been used for decades, many church leaders did not really see the need to change. Now what they have realized is that by not conforming to some of the technology they are losing members in their religious community. As people become attached to their technological devices, they are becoming detached from their faith. If you have not yet starting catching up with technology to get your…
  • Becoming a Better Writer Series: Writing More Effective Sentences

    Rachel Blom
    29 Jan 2015 | 7:00 am
    In this Dutchgirl’s Guide to Becoming a Better Writer, we’ve looked at many issues already. Today, we’re focusing on the very foundation of writing: sentences. Let’s start by defining what I mean by effective sentences: An effective sentence has rhythm, communicates the message you want to get across and invites the reader to read further. Three goals to achieve then, in order to make a sentence effective. How to go about this? Four things matter: One key thought per sentence, also known as purpose driven writing. Rhythm. I’ve covered this in depth in a previous post as well.

    As the Director of Business Development for a faith-based online and mobile giving provider, I spend most of my days talking with pastors and church leaders about the ways in which technology can transform the “giving culture” at their churches. During these conversations, I am often struck by how hesitant many church leaders are to engage with digital giving tools. Despite the fact that less than 7% of transactions in the United States are conducted via cash and check, many thousands of churches continue to count on cash and check donations for 100% of their annual budget.

    28 Jan 2015 | 9:00 pm
    (University of Toronto Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering) Engineers have shone new light on an emerging family of solar-absorbing materials that could clear the way for cheaper and more efficient solar panels and LEDs. The materials, called perovskites, are particularly good at absorbing visible light, but had never been thoroughly studied in their purest form: as perfect single crystals. Using a new technique, researchers grew large, pure perovskite crystals and studied how electrons move through the material as light is converted to electricity.

Other apps already do this, but Duet’s claim to fame is it will extend your desktop in a way that’s lag free. So if you’re watching movies or animation and moving elements between monitors, you’ll not notice lag. Duet’s unique feature that allows this is that Duet connects to your Mac using the USB port and either 30 pin connector or Lightning connector. I’ve…

    Despite early signs of recovery, unemployment continues to stunt economic growth throughout Europe. What concerns policymakers is youth unemployment, coupled with the alarming lack of digital skills that prevents people from finding work. Our core mission at Microsoft is to empower every individual and organization to do more and achieve more. To that end, in 2012 we launched Microsoft YouthSpark, a company-wide initiative which is also a signed pledge of the Grand Coalition for Digital Jobs, aiming to create opportunities for 300 million youth around the world over 3 years.

  • Europe stands at the threshold of computer science education

    Simon Peyton Jones
    27 Jan 2015 | 8:59 am
    Europe stands on the threshold of a major revolution in the way we teach our children of computing. A succession of major European reports (Royal Society, Informatics Europe, CEPIS) has diagnosed the problem, and there is a settled consensus on what to do. Yet progress is slow and patchy. Let’s fix that! It is no longer enough simply to teach our children how to use computers. To a large extent they know this already (albeit perhaps less than they suppose), but more importantly technology changes so fast that the subject is out of date before it hits the classroom. What we should do instead…

Here is what we think of the keyboard case: The quality of the case was build up to standard unlike some of its Japaneses competitors , but the physical attachment to the iPhone was not so secure it would be easy to disconnect the case from the iPhone simply by dropping the device it self , this is a big factor when thinking about rather or not to connect this keyboard case that enhances typing or a protective case that can protect the device it self.

This includes four cores Steamroller and up to eight GCN cores, ie 512 stream processors.

(The money will be going to support the families of those killed, though there is a bit of a sour note starting with people trying to sell copies on eBay) If the aim of the shootings was to cow Hebdo and its satire it has been a complete failure so far, and also far any attempt to further inflame France (if anything the UK media seems more cowed than the French).

For starters, it’s free if you upgrade within a year of its release. With this announcement, Microsoft moved away from its earlier policy of releasing Windows which had to be purchased each time it came out with a new version. Users on Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 will be eligible for a free upgrade. A second feature called “continuum” also caught our attention. With continuum,…

    There are many, many studies on creativity and possible ways to improve the creative output of a group. Monetary incentives are often presented as a way to get people to produce more ideas, but some studies show that money isn't actually a great motivator. Obviously, there are a lot of factors that can influence how creative people are, but it would be nice to isolate a few and see if we can eliminate some practices that are downright detrimental to creativity. It would be great if we found out what really could inspire people, but maybe we shouldn't put too much pressure on the…

The DOJ cited this same "arms race" in its (losing) argument against a warrant requirement for cellphone searches. To hear law enforcement tell it, today's criminals are racing far ahead of today's under-equipped cops, who are stymied by their billions of federal drug-chasing dollars, automatic license plate readers, warrantless GPS tracking, building interior-scanning radar devices…

    For a few months now, the FCC has been hinting that it was preparing to raise the base definition of broadband, and now it has officially made it happen. Voting 3-2 along party lines (because having goals is a partisan issue, you know), the agency declared that we're officially raising the standard definition of broadband from 4 Mbps down, 1 Mbps up to 25 Mbps down, 3 Mbps up. That means, with the flip of a pdf announcement (pdf), millions of you technically no longer have broadband. In fact, with the FCC's decision the number of unserved broadband households has jumped from around 6% to…

  • Ditched my Cintiq Companion and upgraded my Surface Pro 3

    C.K. Sample III
    25 Jan 2015 | 9:29 am
    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). Aside: If you want to sell old gear fast at reasonable prices,…

    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). But beyond that small sadness, I’ve been…

    Thanks to my in-laws, Curt & Marian, I got a brand new Kindle Voyage (WiFi with Special Offers) for Christmas, and so far it’s been a great upgrade from the low end model Kindle that had replaced my Kindle Paperwhite that I broke over a year ago (flew out of my bag while I was slinging said bag into the trunk of my car; Kindle Paperwhite landing screen down on the parking lot pavement). The 300 dpi screen is definitely noticeably sharper than previous generations and the lighting has been improved since the Paperwhite came out. It’s now very even, with no noticeable dark…

    No more standing desk This is a brand new shot of my office at Chaotic Moon. The past year and a half, I’ve been working at a standing desk, but this morning I walked in, grabbed a free chair, removed the four screws from the legs of my desk that were holding it at standing height, and adjusted them down to a comfortable ergonomic height for me to work while seated. Why? Well, first off: there have been many positive side effects from working standing up over the past year and a half. All of the lower back issues that I had been having all but disappeared last year. My legs and ankles…

  • Spike Lee is Less Intimidating as an 8-Bit Pixel Backpack

    Sprayground is going pixelated for two of its new backpacks, the Power Up Pixel Wings Backpack and the Spike Lee Pixels Collab Backpack. Both of them will give you sweet new 8-bit powers. The Power Up Pixel Wings Backpack looks like something Mario would get if he ingested a different sort of mushroom, with bright, vaguely psychedelic wings sprouting from the sides, giving you the power of imagined flight that only the right kinds of mushrooms can confer. Meanwhile, the Spike Lee Pixels Collab Backpack features a pixelated version of Spike Lee and gives you the power of being an…

  • Want to Install DOS On Your iPhone? Now You Can!

    The days of Minesweeper being packaged in with your PC are, criminally, long gone. So, we need to look to other sources to get our fix of the original addicting time waster not called solitaire. One way to do that is with Power DOS, an iOS app that just hooked us all up with our notoriously hard-to-save smiling friend once more. I guess it’s kind of a disservice to call Power DOS an app, though. While you do download it from the app store, it’s actually a fully fledged DOS operating system (yes, I know that’s redundant) that you can play around with. That means you can…

    While there won’t be any television shows debuting after the Super Bowl this year (The Blacklist will be resuming its second season), plenty of other years in the past have used the big game as a springboard for fantastic ratings success—both for the episode after the Super Bowl and for episodes and season to come. And, while there have been plenty of failures, too (so it goes with television), we’ve had more than a few breakout success thanks to almost unreal numbers of people that tune into the Super Bowl (111.5 million last year!).

    The whole idea behind smart technology is to make life easier. And, nobody needs life made easier more than new parents—the constant worrying, the lack of sleep, and the never-ending to-do lists can get really stressful, so it’s always welcome when a device like TempTraq makes child rearing not only easier, but more reassuring. We already took a look at what TempTraq does—a small, soft patch to be worn by babies that takes regular temperature measurements, alerting parents when their baby’s temperature spikes unexpectedly. We got to see a demo of TempTraq in action when Matt…

    Working one day in August of 2007, I couldn't help but realize that my regular PC keyboard didn't serve me as much as possible. I had to move my hands between the various blocks of my keyboard excessively, hundreds if not thousands of times per day, and my hands were uncomfortably close to each other. There must be a better way, I thought. This realization was followed by an overwhelming feeling of excitement as I thought about creating the perfect hacker keyboard 0 and later, the realization that, as a software developer, I was hopelessly clueless about hardware.

    As vast and sophisticated as the mobile tech industry may have become, in the end it still relies on some very basic ways for making money. You can either sell hardware, like Apple's doing, or sell ads, which account for roughly the same proportion of Google's regular income. Netflix and Amazon's Kindle store have found success as cross-platform services, but spending on mobile software is unlikely to ever match that of the old days when we paid for Windows, Office, and Photoshop on the desktop. It's easier to sell things that a person can touch and interact with physically. This is why HTC…

    (What you’re about to read was dictated by me into a machine.) Through the years, I’ve purchased numerous iterations of dictation software from the company now called Nuance. For some reason, dictating has never worked for me. Perhaps it’s because I was born after the Don Draper era.

  • A Clearer View of the Future of Google Glass

    Rex Hammock
    15 Nov 2014 | 12:32 pm
    (See Update) November 14, 2014, via Reuters: Of 16 Glass app makers contacted by Reuters, nine said that they had stopped work on their projects or abandoned them, mostly because of the lack of customers or limitations of the device. Three more have switched to developing for business, leaving behind consumer projects. Last year, I observed in a post–one that included an email exchange  with Don Norman of Nielson-Norman and author of The Design of Everyday Things–that I believed the product release of Google Glass was bungled by Google. As much as I’m a fan and customer of…

    Over the last two years I have spent a lot of time on the photos section of this website. I have redesigned and refactored it a few times, along the way evolving it to a place to support and house my passion projects: in-depth photo stories from my travels. These photo stories are the perfect coalescence of my passions: design, development, travel and photography. I've created three large photo story collections so far: Greece, France and Japan. While each trip only lasted a week or two, each collection took some 3 or 4 months of spare time on weekends to create, comprised of many photosets…

    30 Jul 2014 | 10:00 am
    Drone. Quadcopter. Phantom. Dronie. You’ve no doubt heard about these terms with increasing gusto in recent months. They are everywhere in the news now; from seeing more dronies slide into your Twitter timeline and taking dronecations with Travel By Drone to an influx of startups taking drone tech to new heights. Heck, even Martha Stewart got in on the act with her piece on drones in TIME yesterday. Some of my dronies What exactly am I talking about when I say drone? Drone tends to imply a fully autonomous, sometimes GPS-guided unmanned aerial vehicle. While much of what I’m about to…

    Last week I attended Google I/O for the first time and participated on a small panel about cross-platform design challenges. There was so much going on that it was a bit of sensory overload, much like walking down the Las Vegas strip for the first time. Google announced many welcomed Android improvements such as a battery saver mode and lock-screen notifications; something you'd previously need to use add-ons for as mentioned in Android is better. More uses of the Android operating system emerged: Android Wear, Android Auto and Android TV. A smartphone won't be the only thing that comes to…

    Last week Dropbox launched a new gallery app called Carousel. It's a focused app, only letting people view their photos stored on Dropbox1 and conveniently share them. There are a few interesting parts in the app but there is one piece I’d like to highlight: Swipe down to hide. This gesture doesn't delete your photo, it simply removes it from the gallery view. It's not a heavy action. There's no cognitive overhead, no thinking "wait, do I want this shot?" as there generally is when deleting items.

    A few weeks ago my DNS provider Zerigo sent an email stating that due to recent infrastructure upgrades they would need to raise their prices. For my meager DNS needs that ended up being a huge price hike: from $39 per year to $25 per month1. Prices were set to take effect a month later. I decided to put my current dev work — designing and building new photoblog functionality to showcase my Japan trip photos — on hold to move away from Zerigo. I chose to switch to AWS Route 53. I was able to successfully get my DNS running on Route 53 and pointing to my Heroku setup rather…

    When you join Twitter, it sets your profile picture as a colored egg but for people to take you seriously, you replace that egg with your face. This is the first rule of the Twitter book but some users aren’t paying attention. Maybe they are too lazy to change the avatar, maybe they want to stay anonymous or maybe they are bots and fake users created by spammers who “sell” Twitter followers. This week, I set out to count the number of eggs that follow me on Twitter and results were surprising. It turned that out of the 53k users who follow me, around 15% of the followers…

    Your mobile phone has a globally unique number associated with it, called the IMEI number, that uniquely identifies your device within the mobile network. If your phone gets lost or is stolen, you would need to provide this IMEI number to the law enforcement agencies and the telecom operator for them to blacklist your device and prevent anyone else from using your phone on their wireless network. As you probably know, it is relatively easy to find the IMEI number of your mobile phone. While there are apps that will help you retrieve this number with a tap, you don’t really need one.

    Steam Machines could be the PC that time passed by. These small computers, designed for streaming games in your living room, were intended as an alternative platform for gamers during the dark years of Windows 8.

  • Selling passwords for $150, and other dumb ways users threaten corporate security

    Corporate passwords for sale, $150 OBO. That, apparently, is how little some employees may take in exchange for compromising their company's security. SailPoint’s Market Pulse Survey, compiled from responses from 1,000 workers from large companies with at least 3,000 employees, offers vivid examples of how easily one person can create a lot of risk—and why passwords alone are simply inadequate.

    For many the history of computers is a string of western events and discoveries, all attached to a single line that led to the development of modern PCs. But even as the IBM 5150 (NYSE: IBM) was being developed in the United States, Japan was already making history with its own personal computers and the PC-98 is perhaps the most important of them all. A rising sun The PC-98 started as project PCX-04, NEC’s (TYO: 6701)  first venture into the 16-bit computing era. The series’ first model, the PC-9801, was released in 1982.

  • Update: SAS revenues hit record $3.09B but weakening Euro hurts

    30 Jan 2015 | 3:32 am
    Driven by strong growth in cloud computing-related data analytics and with the help of a growing number of partners, SAS drives revenues to a record high and extend its profitability for a 39th consecutive year. But currency "headwinds" - a weakening Euro and strengthening dollar - cut into what would have been an even better year, says a top SAS executive.

  • OWC Creates a Better Thunderbolt Dock

    Terry White
    29 Jan 2015 | 4:56 am
    In 2013 I got the Belkin Thunderbolt Dock and I’ve been quite happy with it. So what could change in two years? Well, a lot. The basic principle is the same. A Thunderbolt dock allows you to plug in a single Thunderbolt cable into your Mac and expand the ports giving you more USB 3 ports, Firewire 800, audio line in/line out, etc. The NEW OWC Thunderbolt 2 Dock does what you would expect but offers 5 USB 3.0 ports instead of 3. It offers 2 Thunderbolt 2 ports, and HDMI (with 4K support) in addition to Firewire 800, Gigabit Ethernet, Audio in/out. Two of the five USB 3.0 ports are also…

    People in my immediate circle know that I enjoy a good cappuccino or latte. People even commented on my Starbucks card in the screenshot that I did in my Apple Pay review. However, when I moved last year the one thing I missed was having a Starbucks nearby. Yes there are other coffee shops in the area and probably even better coffee, but I just haven’t found one that I enjoy enough to make it a regular stop. My old Starbucks was “on the way” to a lot of things. I have looked at expresso makers in the past and for a good one they seemed very pricey and very complicated to…

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

  • Opening and Closing

    Alex Goldfayn
    26 Jan 2015 | 2:09 pm
    If you want to grow revenue, nothing will do so faster, easier and more dramatically than marketing. Marketing opens what sales closes. We must sell, and we must close. But we must constantly be opening new opportunities. We must consistently create new opportunities for our sales function. If all you do is close, eventually, you’re walled in, trapped, with no opportunities (for growth) in sight. Your pipeline will run dry. To open, we must systematically communicate our value to people who can buy it. That’s all marketing is. To open, to grow, me must market.   The…
  • Market Especially to Existing Customers

    Alex Goldfayn
    19 Jan 2015 | 4:31 pm
    We must market to existing customers as much as we market to prospects.There are two big reasons for this: 1. The competition is calling on them aggressively. Every time they say “no” to them, they make a conscious decision to say with you. We must help them make this decision, again and again, by clearly explaining all of the wonderful things we do for them. Right now, they probably don’t know about everything you do so well for them. 2. Your customers do not know about all of the products and services they can buy from you. When you do not market to your existing…

    Alex Goldfayn
    12 Jan 2015 | 2:48 pm
    Unlike your products and services, which need to be precise and exact, your marketing needs only to be helpful. I heard Alan Weiss say this once, and it has stuck with me ever since: In marketing, quantity trumps quality. The more that people hear from us, the more they will buy from us. So stop trying to make it perfect. Stop putting it off. Write or record something helpful to your customers and prospects, and send it to them. Then do it again. And again. Ready? FIRE! Then aim, assess and adjust. If it’s working, double down on it. If it’s not working, or you don’t like…

  • Revenue Resolutions

    Alex Goldfayn
    29 Dec 2014 | 1:50 pm
    Resolutions for dramatic revenue growth in 2015 — for you, your colleagues and your staff: 1. Each day I will communicate my value to at least one customer or prospect who can buy from me — in person, on the phone, or least preferably, via a personal email. 2. I will grow my company’s list of customers and prospects, because if my list isn’t growing, my revenue likely isn’t either. 3. I resolve to regularly mail or e-mail value to my growing list. My communications will focus on improving the lives and companies of my readers, not selling, pitching or promoting.

    Amanda Seyfried is set to star in her first off-Broadway production in Neil LaBute’s The Way We Get By, replacing Tatiana Maslany. Second Stage Theater said Thursday that Amanda Seyfried is taking over for Mislay, after the Orphan Black star had to pull out of the production due to filming schedule conflicts.

It apparently took place during the filming of their hit film Mortdecai, in which both Gwyneth Paltrow and Penelope Cruz star, along with Johnny Depp. Paltrow was dishing about her experience on set–kissing Johnny Depp–to Rachael Ray. That’s when she admitted her jealousy. “I ruined probably 15 takes–which was funny at first,” Paltrow explained about their kissing scene, in which they both keep gagging…

    Motorola Moto E is due an upgrade this year. After relative success of the Moto E in its earlier days, the device succumbed to the competition provided by the likes of Mi 1s as well as the Android One devices which in a way played on the strengths of the Moto E and bettered it for the same price point. However, looks like Motorola will come back in the game and stronger than ever with an interesting Upgrade to the Moto E. The surfaced leaks show a shape that is strikingly similar to the previous generation of the Motorola Moto E, however it is the internals and few add-ons which have caught…
  • Xiaomi Planning to sell the Devices via its own Website in India?

    After introducing the trend of flash sales which virtually everyone in the mainstream smartphone consumer tech world seem to have hooked on to, Xiaomi is planning to move away from Flipkart to its own website for hosting the sales of their products. It is worth noting that in China, all the Mi products are sold directly from their website rather than any sort of an exclusive partnership. The only reason, why we feel, this model was not implemented in India was due to the issues with warehousing and logistics coupled with the fact that Xiaomi had no idea about how hit the products will be with…

Given the disposable nature of the platform, teenagers are very comfortable with the platform for the harmless fun element of it. It is due to this wide range of audience that is already on Snapchat why several of the major brands such as Lacoste and Pepsi have started gradually utilizing the platform for digital marketing opportunities. Snapchat to their credit, seems to want to embrace this and has added a brand new Discover section which is visible just on…

Trends in digital advertising feel like an endless agony to me. To sum up: there is no sign of improvement on the performance side; a growing percentage of ads are sold in bulk; click-fraud and user rejection are on the rise, all resulting in ceaseless deflation.

The expansion of the Medicaid program along with the introduction of new health insurance exchanges have enabled people to have increased access to health insurance coverage though access to healthcare services may not be easy. Telehealth services has become an important tool for increasing access to care as this will allow physicians to reach more number of patients by integrating electronic information and telecommunication technologies into…
  • Emergency Room Closures Linked to More Hospital Deaths

    22 Jan 2015 | 8:40 pm
    A new study of California Hospitals found that patients admitted into the emergency rooms of a hospital are at greater risk of dying if another emergency room at a hospital nearby has closed its doors. The research was primarily conducted to identify the potential impact of emergency room closures on patient care quality at the hospitals functioning within the same service area. The study published in the August issue of the medical journal Health Affairs aimed to find out how the disappearance of emergency rooms translated into high mortality rate for hospital patients. Less number of ERs…

    More young people are enrolling in Obamacare. According to a recent report, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) compared the proportion of young enrollees to enrollment data for 2014. It was found that in mid-January last year, 29% of enrollees were under the age of 34 and that this year, this number has risen slightly – people under the age of 34 made up 33% of those who chose a new plan. It is expected that the number of young enrollees will rise by February 15th, 2015, the date which marks the end of Open Enrollment. In May 2014, HHS reported a surge of young adults (in…

    The FCC today moved to increase the definition of broadband from 4 to 25 Mbps. In 2010, the commission ruled that speeds of 4 Mbps download and 1 Mbps upload constitute broadband. But that benchmark "is dated and inadequate for evaluating whether advanced broadband is being deployed to all Americans in a timely way," the […]

    As a programmer, how do you measure you productivity? What kinds of tools do you have to determine project progress? Are you using story points? Is it the number of stories delivered in a certain time span? Do you track your progress with burn-down charts? When you think about a successful working day, one of those days where you come home to your partner and say it has been really productive, what happened that day? For me it is very simple. I measure my productivity in code. Thus a really productive day is a day where I have written and tested a good amount of code. Or even more specific…

These four controls have been cut down from a list of 35 that a branch of the Australian government called the Defence Signals Doctorate put together based on their analysis of the cyber-attacks they were subject to.

Your business may have a unique, proprietary technology that your industry could use. So packaging your intellectual property into a SaaS offering may make sense; you could essentially rent your ‘savoir faire’ to your industry, or even to multiple industries depending on how generic the technology is. For example, if you know how to process insurance…

    For years when creating web sites we've added a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section to our site. Please stop NOW. You don't need an FAQ The usual answer is that this is where we put all the questions that people are always asking us and it saves time answering the same questions over and over again. That's why it is called "frequently asked questions" - makes sense doesn't it. NO! Think about it Why is everyone asking those questions? There are several reasons but they all come down to it being your fault. If you had written clearer content then people wouldn't have any questions. If you…
  • Not all code is created equal

    It should be no surprise that I am a supporter of the GPL licence for software. Today I would like to apologise to developers of javascript and icon libraries that I have unknowingly ripped off and defrauded. When I download an extension licensed as GPL I know that I am allowed to use that software how and where I want. However many extensions use libraries written by others and not all libraries are created equally. Unless I look at the raw files outside of Joomla it is often impossible for me to know what libraries are being used. Do you ever look? You should! I am not talking about "is it…

There is no point in writing great content if nobody will read it so length does matter - line length that is - what else did you think I was talking about. Too short If the length of the line too short then as a reader your eyes will be travelling left and right so often that it breaks the reading flow. Speed readers and content scanners also find that they are starting the next line before finishing the first and as a result may miss important content or misunderstand the…

After reading the book I have surprised myself by being able to…

    Carrier hotels are an integral part of global communications infrastructure.  The carrier hotel serves a vital function, specifically the role of a common point of interconnection between facility-based (physical cable in either terrestrial, submarine, or satellite networks) carriers, networks, content delivery networks (CDNs), Internet Service Providers (ISPs), and even private or government networks and hosting companies. In some locations, such as the One Wilshire Building in Los Angeles, or 60 Hudson in New York, several hundred carriers and service providers may interconnect physically…

    Risk management has been around for a long time.  Financial managers run risk assessments for nearly all business models, and the idea of risk carries nearly as many definitions as the Internet.  However, for IT managers and IT professionals, risk management still frequently takes a far lower priority that other operations  and support activities. 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…

Here’s our take: Getting the most value out of your data can make you better at what you do as well as enable you to do more with what you have. In other words, there’s unrealized value in those data silos that all companies have. But make no mistake: the road to realizing data value is paved with good intentions and often times, poor execution and results. Today,…

    Flash technology has proven to be a disruptive force in the storage marketplace. Server and network performance gains over the last decade have been substantial, but the hard drive performance needle has hardly moved. This situation has resulted in server utilization being reduced while waiting on storage input output (I/O) operations to be completed. Server virtualization has further contributed to this situation. Server virtualization has been deployed in most enterprises and has delivered great benefits, including environmental and footprint savings, more efficient server utilization, and…

    Reflecting on my earlier career in IT management, I have to confess to a level of astonishment at how naïve IT administrative practices were just a decade or two ago. Failure events were common, and most organizations just accepted as immutable fact the reality of systemic firefighting. IT services critical to business operations were all too often held together with little more than a hope and a prayer. Sure, my colleagues and I were acutely aware of the importance of performing “root cause analysis” and implementing proactive management practices, but who had the time for that? The…

    Windows 10 for phones is on the way, at least in preview form. Tonight, Microsoft began laying more groundwork for the Technical Preview by updating their Phone Insider app. Originally found on the Store a few weeks ago, the Insider program will let people download early builds of Windows 10 to their phones before general release. The major change to the app is the name to Windows Insider, matching the name of the desktop preview program.

    If you’re an avid Pinterest user (or pinner, as the site prefers) you may have noticed a change to the search results you get on the site. Specifically, if you’re a man your search results just got a lot, well, manlier. That’s because Pinterest now changes which search results you see depending on whether you’re registered as a male or female. The change was first picked up by the Wall Street Journal, and since confirmed by Pinterest. Search results for thousands of terms are customized based on gender, sometimes looking almost completely different for men and…
  • Is Google Going to Crack Down on Non-Mobile Websites?

    28 Jan 2015 | 1:04 am
    We just discussed how mobile SEO is more important than ever. And a big part of mobile SEO is simply making a website that’s clean and easy to use on a mobile device. But this issue just went from amber alert to red alert now that Google is sending out warnings to webmasters en masse. The warnings started coming in mid-January, and a surprisingly huge number of websites have received them. They don’t say any immediate action has been taken against the websites, and are worded to be a sort of helpful heads up. But coming from the world’s biggest search engine, you…

    We all know what a big difference SEO makes in visibility, traffic and ultimately conversions. For many companies, SEO has become even more important than online advertising. But does your SEO strategy target users on mobile devices, or is it stuck in the desktop past? Of course, not all users are on mobile, and those who are have many ways to find you besides just search. We’ve been hearing for years how mobile is the next big thing, but many businesses have told themselves it’s only a small portion of traffic or that mobile is all about apps, not search. It looks like that…
  • Should Europe Regulate American Search Results?

    Andre Sólo
    26 Jan 2015 | 12:14 pm
    Google has drawn a line in the sand with the EU, at least for the time being. Last year European Union courts established a “right to be forgotten,” effectively bolstering their citizens’ privacy rights. Under that policy, citizens and residents of 32 European countries can request to have inaccurate or inappropriate information about them removed from search results. Google created a system for requesting removals and it seemed to be working fine. But now European regulators want to go a step further—a step all the way across the pond. Google has been removing pages…
  • How to Optimize for Different Branches of a Chain

    Andre Sólo
    23 Jan 2015 | 12:49 am
    Rachel Lindteigen recently penned a great piece on how to manage SEO for different local branches of a franchise. This presents a real problem for SEO because there are often individual websites, or pages on a single domain, for each location. They all represent the same brand and try to rank for the same keywords—often in very nearby geographic areas. We’ve found that different locations of any chain business can have similar problems, even if they’re not actually franchised. So how do you get them all to rank without cannibalizing each other? Rachel offers a few…

    Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi has inadvertently reignited a century-old geopolitical dispute between India and China, Quartz reports. Officially the most valuable startup in the world, the company is growing at a rapid rate by selling high-quality, low-cost smartphones and other devices. (It's been described as the "Apple of China," and has also been accused of stealing Apple's designs.) The growing market in India is key to Xiaomi's ambitions — according to a BBC report, it hopes to sell as many as 100,000 handsets in the company every week. But at a new product launch in Delhi,…

    Late in January the Malaysian Airlines website ‘supposedly’ hacked by Lizard Squad. You  might remember Lizard Squad as the guys who ‘hacked’ the XBox and Play Station network over the Christmas holidays, and I’m using a lot of ‘quotes’ here because Lizard Squad didn’t really ‘hack’ XBox One or Playstation, they merely DDOS-ed it. What is DOS-ed I hear you say? A DDOS attack is one where you flood a server with so much web traffic, that the server is no longer able to serve content to legitimate customers.

For those of you who aren’t keeping tabs of security issues–Poodle was a big vulnerability discovered in the 2nd half of 2014, that affected the SSLv3 protocol.

    Apple presentará mañana sus resultados financieros correspondientes al cuarto trimestre del 2014, y muchos analistas esperan que la compañía anuncie, por primera vez, la venta de más iPhones en China que en Estados Unidos. Según diversos analistas, hubo dos puntos clave que ayudaron a que China superara a Estados Unidos como principal bastión de ventas de Apple. En primer lugar, á el hecho de que Apple se asociara con China Mobile el año pasado, la operadora de telefonía móvil más grande del mundo, lo que le permitió a Apple llegar a millones de nuevos clientes. En segundo lugar,…

Dicho esto, es más que probable que Tim Cook anuncie otro trimestre con ventas récord, sobre todo, si tenemos en cuenta…

    You’ve probably run into the situation at home or at the office where you were doing something confidential on the computer and someone else came by right at that time. If you haven’t planned ahead of time, the only thing you could do is try to minimize the application, which is fairly slow and will give the other person enough time to see what you were doing. In this article, I’m going to show you a couple of methods for quickly hiding your applications and windows, some of which will be more obvious than others. Depending on who you are trying to hide the windows from…
  • How to Burn Windows Movie Maker WMV Video to DVD

    28 Jan 2015 | 10:13 pm
    By default, Windows ME, Windows XP and Windows Vista included Windows Movie Maker (WMM) for creating and editing home videos. With Windows 7, it became a separate product part of the Windows Live Essentials suite. The latest version was released in 2012 as Windows Movie Maker 2012 for Windows 7, 8 and 8.1. Depending on your version of Windows, you may or may not be able to burn a WMV file to a DVD from WMM. Windows Vista and Windows 7 both included a free program called Windows DVD Maker, which was sadly removed in Windows 8. Using Windows DVD Maker, you can burn a WMV file to DVD directly…

    22 Jan 2015 | 11:15 pm
    Looking to switch from your ISP DNS to another provider? I was surprised to find out that using a free public DNS server from a reputable company was far better than using my local ISP DNS, especially when travelling in foreign countries. I was recently in India and was getting very frustrated with the constant Webpage cannot load errors followed by the website loading 5 seconds later. I kept seeing the DNS lookup failed message, so I figured let me try another DNS provider and that made an absolute world of difference. There are a bunch of public DNS servers you can use, but I won’t…
  • How to Change the File Type Icon in Windows

    Aseem Kishore
    22 Jan 2015 | 12:37 am
    If you have a file on your computer with a non-recognizable extension, then Windows will simply assign that file a generic file icon. If you work in a corporate environment, this can happen all the time with custom software applications using proprietary formats. Even if you are a home user, it might be worth your time to change the default icon that is assigned for a text document or for all PDF documents, etc. This tip is really just for customizing the look and feel of Windows to your liking. In Windows XP, changing a file type’s icon was very simple and could be done via Windows…

    This article will show you how to use the remote shutdown command tool in Windows to remotely shutdown or restart a local or networked computer. This can be very useful sometimes if you have multiple computers at home or on your network that you want to quickly shutdown or restart.

  • What Should You Do With Your Smartphone’s Old SIM Card?

    Laura Jackson
    21 Jan 2015 | 6:30 pm
    I don’t know about you, but I get bored of the smartphone I have after 12 months of ownership! Mobile manufacturers release new models all the time. They often have innovative new features which our existing handsets don’t contain. To take advantage of such new gadgets, we usually upgrade our smartphones and cell network contracts. More often than not, that involves changing the network provider to get the best deal. Once upon a time cell networks would match upgrade deals from their rivals. These days, competition isn’t so aggressive. They are keen to retain their existing customers.

    20 Jan 2015 | 2:04 am
    PPC or “pay-per-click” campaigns often get used by organizations that want to drive traffic to their sites. They are also useful for new sites that have few inbound links going to them from external websites. One of the most popular PPC services on the Internet is Google AdWords. Of course, the other major search engines also operate systems for corporate clients too. When you first sign up for such a service, one thing that will become obvious is how complex they are to use!

    John Morris
    9 Jan 2015 | 7:46 pm
    When I first got into the online business/internet marketing space (way back in 2004) one of the ideas I saw thrown around a lot was this notion of getting business on “autopilot”. I always thought it was a little silly. It sounded like straight up hype to me. I mean how is it possible to get traffic, leads and sales on “autopilot”… the same numbers week after week without a lot of input on your part? Didn’t seem possible. And, for a lot of years I simply wrote it off as hype and didn’t think much more about it. Then, I started getting serious about…

I wasn’t born a “geek”. I grew up in a military and sports-oriented family. My first job ever was working construction for my dad. I was a star football player in high school.

    29 Jan 2015 | 11:43 pm
    Nokia’s best decision might have been selling its mobile division to Microsoft for £5 billion, removing the sinking division and giving the Finnish company enough capital to re-invest in networking and mapping technologies. The results are already noticeable; Nokia reported £2.84 billion in revenue and £331 million net profit in the fourth quarter, compared to £2.60 billion in revenue and £17 million in net loss last year. Networking sales increased by 10 percent since last quarter, partly due to strong interest in North America. Nokia also managed to maintain a strong portfolio of…
  • 5 things Microsoft's Android-powered CyanogenMod Lumia needs for success

    While I don't usually speculate on rumors, sometimes they are just too interesting to ignore. Imagine my surprise to hear a rumor from the Wall Street Journal that Microsoft has allegedly invested $70 million in Android ROM-maker, Cyanogen. Think about that for a moment -- the company behind Windows, investing in the Linux-based CyanogenMod operating system -- insanity! Sure, it does sound crazy, but it's totally plausible that the new Microsoft, focusing on software and services, could jump-start its mobile offering by embracing Android and dumping the seemingly-stalled Windows Phone (or…
  • If your internet connection isn't at least 25Mbps, it's not broadband

    Mark Wilson
    29 Jan 2015 | 4:00 pm
    For a long time, the official definition of a broadband connection is one that delivers a download speed of at least 4Mbps. Now the FCC has increased the lower limit so any connection that has a download speed of less than 25Mbps and an upload speed below 3Mbps will no longer be considered a broadband connection. If you look at your line stats and feel a little let down, you're far from being alone, and the FCC feels your pain. The Federal Communications Commission voted to increase the minimum speed as part of an ongoing effort to push ISPs into offering higher speeds. The reason? The modern…

    Hey bro, it's almost Super Bowl Sunday! You know what that means, right? Testosterone and fatty foods. For one day a year, weak computer nerds like me pretend to be men by watching NFL football and eating junk food. Truth be told, I enjoy watching American football, but for the most part, I am happier watching Big Bang Theory or The Bachelor with a nice cup of herbal tea! Don't worry, if you are a computer nerd that isn't interested in watching sports, you can at least use technology to enhance the Super Bowl experience. How? With Twitter, of course! Yes, between watching the commercials, you…

    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…

With the advent of computers and word processing units, digital content publishing is just easier, with faster delivery times and a (potentially) wider reach.

This seems to be another (simpler, cheaper) way to create neuromorphic chips. We’ve written about neuromorphic chips before (see my posts on IBM SyNAPSE, IBM TrueNorth and MIT’s analog neuromorphic chip).

    Containers? No, not the shipping containers but the much-hyped container technology in the computer industry. I am sure even if you have not used any of the existing container technologies, you must have at least read or heard about them. I am not the first one to write about containers and this is certainly not an in-depth overview of container technologies. I will eventually get there and show you how you can deploy different container technologies. This series of articles is about my own thoughts and a documentation for my own reference.

    So you’re sipping coffee at your favorite cafe. You’re connected to the free WiFi to check your Facebook account, maybe take a quick peek at your PayPal balance, and read the headlines. You’re so accustomed to having internet access that you don’t even consider whether the public network you’re connecting to is secure. Just because open WiFi networks have firewalls to protect users doesn’t mean that you’re protected from others logging into the same network, and some may not even have an active firewall. So when you’re using public WiFi, the information stored on your…

We’re in week 2 of the 2011 football season, and NFL fans are tuning in like never before to root for their favorite team and players.

Blackout restrictions and inattention to out-of-market teams (think the lonely Broncos fan living in San Diego) can make life rough; and if your a fantasy football fan forget about it: broadcast…

    Our expectations about what exactly our computers can achieve is changing. We’re no longer tied to PCs or even laptops, and flexible technology is starting to hint at a future where electronics easily (and consistently) interface with our everyday lives. Organic electronics is groundbreaking enough, but an additional ‘wow’ factor in future tech has to be gesture recognition. It’s surprising just how much can be achieved with organic electronics, and the incorporation of flexible technology and its use in applications such as bio-scanners is interesting. What makes this possible is the…

  • Analogue to Digital. Just “Upgrade after Upgrade”.

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

    Michael Arrington
    5 Jan 2015 | 9:38 am
    Detroit. It was once the factory of America. No more. For most of us, Detroit has been a city in decline for much or all of our lives. The population has declined rapidly, and everyone has seen the images of abandoned buildings, drug violence and abject poverty. In other words, Detroit is the perfect place to begin anew. There is an energy there as people begin to rebuild. A willingness to experiment. A stubbornness to succeed. Tech startups can play a pivotal role in rebuilding, but infrastructure is needed. We are seeing a dramatic increase in the number of Detroit based startups looking…

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

    MTailor, one of our recent investments at CrunchFund, is a really amazing company. They make tailored shirts for men, except your mobile device is the tailor. You go through a quick scanning process that involves leaning your phone or tablet against a wall and then spinning slowly in front of it. Once that’s done MTailor has your measurements, which they say are 20% better than actual tailors they used for a study. I’ve never owned tailored shirts but I should have. I have a longer body than average and generally buy tall shirts when I can find them. That’s been harder with…

A few sentences early on in the article floored me, because it describes how I feel exactly: “Doctors tell me that up until recently, I hadn’t had a real REM sleep in maybe as long as a decade,” Beck said. “I didn’t have a dream that I remember, except one in a decade. And quite honestly, this isn’t a symptom you look to fix if you have a ton to do. But the first sign of trouble I noticed was what I call a ‘time collapse.’ If we had met before, I couldn’t tell…
  • Abacus, The Expense Software Employees Love, Raises $3.5 Million

    I hate expense reports. I do them once a year and I still hate it. Back when I had to do them monthly or have the finance department all over me I hated them twelve times as much. Abacus fixes all that. The company was founded by Omar Qari, Ted Power and Josh Halickman (Foursquare, Google, Etsy Venmo and other experience) and they launched earlier this year at Winter Y Combinator. You can read their launch post here. How does Abacus fix expense reports? When a company starts using Abacus, they link their bank account.

  • Ramblings of an Entrepreneur

    Renee Schmidt
    8 Jan 2015 | 12:13 pm
    The life of an entrepreneur is not a particularly easy one. Doors open one day and for weeks or months new ones can remain shut. When doors are shut and no amount of knocking will open them, there’s nothing to lean on but certainty. Sometimes that certainty stems from a distant reminder of when a door unexpectedly flung open in the past. Other times that certainty borders on mania, stemming from nothing more than an inexplicable knowing from within. People sometimes remark to me of their admiration of how far I’ve come as an entrepreneur (how far is actually debatable, but that’s a…

Apple reported a net profit of $18bn (£11.8bn) in its first fiscal quarter, soaring past the previous record of $15.9bn set by ExxonMobil in 2012, as a result of record sales of its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

The free upgrade will be available for 12 months after the release of Windows 10, as Microsoft has decided that it is more important to get the greatest number of people using Windows 10 as quickly as possible than to squeeze a few more dollars out of their existing customers. Apple has long offered free upgrades to its OSX operating system, and it results in them having fewer legacy installs to support and has the bonus of keeping users happy that they are still…

  • The funniest thing you’ll see today: Tennis star Novak Djokovic faces off against an M1 Abrams tank

    29 Jan 2015 | 4:45 pm
    Tennis legend Novak Djokovic has stared down Federer and Nadal... but he's never faced a foe quite as fearsome as this. YouTube user timtimfed has created a hilarious video in which a digital Vietnam-era M1 Abrams tank is edited in with footage of Djokovic playing a match at the Australian Open. The result shows that Djokovic is more than capable of beating the tank at tennis, although that still doesn't stop the tank from being a sore loser and blowing him up at the end.

So here it is for the record, think big and set big goals! If you’ve ever read a book on goal setting or personal development, you will have read that you should set big goals. If you’ve ever had a boss who told you to set goals, he will have said this to you at some point. If you’ve ever…

This corruption itself does not concern me, however the concept that Big Data is in some way better than ordinary every day Data is frustrating as the opportunities of data lie in what you do with it rather than how much of it you’ve got.

They invest management thinking time working out ways to ‘keep their staff motivated’ and their creativity in devising ways to encourage recruiters to sell more, can be impressive. However, is this time well spent? Surely, if they hired more self-motivated individuals in the first place, they would not need to spend as much time monitoring and encouraging motivation in the workplace?

  • Eliminating Google Analytics Referral Spam

    Hilton Lipschitz
    18 Jan 2015 | 7:42 am
    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. The only reason I am talking about…
  • StackOverflow Programming

    17 Jan 2015 | 1:11 pm
    StackOverflow Programming happens when much of the functionality of an application is copied and pasted from the code examples found on StackOverflow. Unfortunately, it’s becoming the most popular and common programming paradigm amongst younger programmers, leading to (1) shockingly shoddy, bug laden, slow, incomprehensible, unmaintainable programs that work only once, and (2) to programmers who do not understand what they are doing, their work and how to solve problems. For example1, one of my interns came into my office this week to see if there was a way to do dates and times easily…
  • Write Timestamps Containing Milliseconds to MongoDB in C++11

    Hilton Lipschitz
    14 Jan 2015 | 3:42 pm
    It took me several hours today to figure this one out, so I thought I’d write it up lest I forget. I have a C++11 application that rapidly writes new documents to a MongoDB instance and I need high-resolution timestamps to determine the order things were written. The problem is that the C++ standard time_t structure reports in seconds, so builder.appendTimeT("updated_at", std::chrono::system_clock::to_time_t(std::chrono::system_clock::now()) ); creates an ISODate without milliseconds in MongoDB. There are many solutions to be found using Boost::time1, but since my code needs to be…

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