    As we mentioned last week, we're celebrating Device Theft Awareness Month in conjunction with Absolute LoJack. We gave you a rundown of just how big a problem device theft is nowadays, with over 3 million people becoming victims of smartphone theft just last year alone. It's a growing problem that you can protect yourself from, and this week we wanted to share three tips that you can do to avoid permanently losing your device or data in the event of loss. 1. Create a passcode for your device. This is a simple method of protecting the data that lives on your device in the event of…

    The following video was made by Grace Church and there is not much more details to go with it, but this video encapsulates so much that I see in church tech. Of course, the video is made tongue and cheek for the humor factor, but there is an element of truth behind every one of the statements made. I wonder how many churches have departments that do not play well together, are not polite to their church techies, and look down on the volunteers and staff. I’d love to hear your own confessionals below and if you need a black bar over your eyes, don’t put your name in it—LOL!

    20 Aug 2014 | 3:41 pm
    We've been hearing a lot about the development of tiny flying sensor-equipped robots, that could be sent into areas such as disaster sites to seek out survivors or survey the damage. However, why go to the trouble of designing those robots from scratch, when there are already ready-made insects that are about the right size? That's the thinking behind research being conducted at North Carolina State University, which is aimed at converting moths into "biobots." ..

    Jim Frederick, the first editor I had during my time as a tech writer for TIME, died unexpectedly on Thursday night. He was only 42, and I’m still in shock. The loss would be incalculable no matter what the circumstances, but it feels especially jarring and surreal given the bright future Jim was building for himself. Along with his wife Charlotte, he’d just switched coasts from New York to San Francisco in order to start a media consultancy. (I got the LinkedIn notification formally announcing the news just yesterday morning.) Jim’s most obvious legacy will be his work as a…

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,…

    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…

    Where have all the burglars gone?: Tallinn on the decrease in crime around the developed world in recent years: But the sheer scale of the drop—and its broad persistence in the face of the deepest economic depression in a century—make a new crime wave seem unlikely. Policing is still improving; heroin and crack-cocaine consumption continue to fall; and no one is likely to reintroduce lead into petrol. The period of rising crime from the 1950s through to the 1980s looks increasingly like an historical anomaly. A portion of the theory reminds me a bit of Minority Report’s “pre-crime”.

After a remarkable analysis of bacterial DNA from 1,000-year-old mummies, scientists have proposed a new hypothesis for how tuberculosis arose and spread around the world. The disease originated less than 6,000 years ago in Africa, they say, and took a surprising route to reach the New World: it was carried across the Atlantic by seals. The new study, published Wednesday in the journal Nature, has already provoked strong reactions from other…

If every mobile device had a built-in kill switch, theft would go down — who would waste their time over a device that probably won't work for very long? Here's where the problem lays: It's law enforcement that's pushing so hard for these kill switches. We first learned about this last summer, and this past May, California passed a law that requires smartphone vendors to implement the feature. In practice,…

  • Analyzing the Surface Pro 3

    I’ve spent the past week with a Surface Pro 3. I’ve used every previous version of Surface and given what the promise of a 2-in-1 PC was supposed to be, the Surface Pro 3 is the closest yet to fulfilling that promise. I was very harsh on the original Surface and, while my overall thesis (which we will get to) on the 2-in-1 PC form factor has not changed, my stance on the Surface itself has softened. Don’t consider this a review of the Surface Pro 3. There are many good reviews of the Surface Pro 3 and serious buyers should read those as well. I’d like to do a more…

  • Device Usage Diversity

    Bob O'Donnell
    19 Aug 2014 | 1:42 am
    When we think about how devices and their usage are evolving, it’s tempting to talk about the rise of one versus the decline of another. But the reality is much more complex. What’s actually happening is that people are acquiring more devices, while simultaneously engaging in more activities, and then splitting those activities across their growing cadre of devices. Things used to be simple. People created documents on PCs, made phone calls on mobile phones and watched live broadcasts on TVs. Sure, there were a few outlying examples, but even just 10 years ago (heck, 5 years ago for many…
  • America Needs Entrepreneurs. Instead Of Programming Teach Children Fantasy Football.

    18 Aug 2014 | 12:15 am
    America needs entrepreneurs. Men, women, boys, girls, native-born, immigrants, smart, skillful, driven, capable entrepreneurs to propel the economy, create jobs, spur innovation and build something from nothing. I believe to do this, to create a sizable generation of entrepreneurs, we should teach fantasy football to all children. Yes, really. Again and again we are told all children should be taught computer programming. Perhaps. I suspect however that teaching computer programming is a false idol, a way of telling ourselves we are prepping our children for the future, even though the future…

Boycott Divestment Sanctions," and was unfurled around 7pm ET. It was removed by New York Police roughly 30 minutes later.

Comcast has specifically indicated that these examples are outside of the way they train employees to conduct their business.

    Times are tough for a patent troll, apparently. A year ago, we noted that Intellectual Ventures -- the world's largest patent troll, who brought in billions of dollars by getting companies to pay up a shakedown fee to avoid lawsuits over its giant portfolio of patents (mostly cast off from universities who couldn't find any other buyers) -- was running out of cash. While IV did convince Microsoft and Sony to dump in some more cash, IV's litigation strategy is in shambles. Various lawsuits are dropping like flies without any of the big wins that IV promised.

To attract top talent in healthcare and biotech, Y Combinator recently tapped medical executive Elizabeth Iorns as a part-time partner. Sam Altman, Y Combinator's president, told Reuters he expects to see a growing number of venture capitalists investing in early-stage biotech and digital health companies.

     Earlier this month, Sony announced that it has already sold 10 million units of its PlayStation 4 game console since its launch last November, a record-setting figure for the company’s hardware. In an interview with Eurogamer published yesterday, SCE Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida admitted that the company doesn’t really know why its console is doing so well in… Read More

     For the last few years there has been a lot of talk in the venture capital industry about automating the home and leveraging Internet-enabled devices for various functions in manufacturing and the traditional workplace. The first wave of this was the use of the smartphone as a remote control, like the Nest’s ability to allow consumers to control their thermostat using their smartphone.… Read More

     Something big is going on with Amazon Prime Air, the e-commerce giant’s research project focused on delivering packages in 30 minutes or less using unmanned drones. And it’s not the dubious story about drone testing in India, which frankly, doesn’t pass the sniff test in terms of accuracy. Prime Air is shaping up to be more than a marketing stunt, it seems.

    When it comes to audio products, Cambridge Audio is a name that is familiar amongst the audiophile circles. Granted it might not be as popular compared to more mainstream brands like Bose or Logitech, but it does have a pretty good reputation. That being said, if you’re looking for new wireless speakers, Cambridge Audio has recently unveiled a trio of new speakers for you to choose from.

    Assuming that Apple doesn’t pull a fast one on us and unveils something completely different on the 9th of September, we’re sure that pretty much everyone knows what the iPhone 6 is going to look at. Both the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models are expected to look identical, save for their sizes, and now thanks to newly leaked photos, photo comparisons between the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch model have surfaced. As you can see in the image above, it shows both the 4.7-inch iPhone 6’s rear casing and the 5.5-inch iPhone 6’s rear casing compared to one another. Safe to say that the difference in…

    When HTC announced the HTC One M8 earlier this year, we’re sure many of you guys are in agreement that the phone is a beautiful piece of technology. HTC then made Windows Phone users really happy when they announced the HTC One M8 for Windows, but so far it seems that Verizon will be carrying the handset for now. HTC did mention that other carriers in the US would soon start carrying the handset with AT&T launching a registration page of their own, but what about the rest of the world? When can they expect global availability of the phone? Well according to the folks at Neowin, they…
  • HP Continues Promoting Windows 7 Over Windows 8

    While Windows 8 might be the latest operating system from Microsoft, it seems that the Redmond company is having a hard time trying to convince its OEM partners to promote and use the operating system. In fact it seems in HP’s latest round of advertising and promotions, the company has focused on Windows 7, instead of Windows 8. HP recently sent out emails to its customers where they are boasting about the availability of Windows 7 on their computers, both desktops and laptops. This is actually not the first time that HP has “ditched” Windows 8 in favor of Windows 7. Apparently they…

    The rumor mill is primarily concerned with the iPhone 6 these days but often we hear something about the next generation iPads as well. If Apple sticks with its usual release cycles then we’ll be treated to new iPads later this fall. A new report out of Asia today suggests that Apple will be doubling the amount of RAM in the iPad Air 2. The tablet is believed to be powered by the company’s A8 processor, which will debut with the iPhone 6. TechNews cites sources within Apple’s supply chain which claim that the amount of RAM is going to be doubled from 1GB to 2GB. The end…

  • Sharp’s new phone barely has a bezel. Is that a good thing?

    Joe Paone
    20 Aug 2014 | 12:51 pm
    It’s a widely accepted point of view that bezels are unsightly, unnecessary and a plain old bummer. But are they really that bad? Sharp’s Crystal AQUOS smartphone My TV has a thin bezel, but it’s still visible. That said, it doesn’t bother me too much. In fact, it may be a net positive, in that it serves to “frame” the TV so the image doesn’t bleed into the wall. After all, isn’t that what picture frames are used for? LG and Samsung are currently marketing “ultra-thin” bezel TVs, which have just a smidge of bezel — barely… Continue reading Sharp’s new phone…

    Barnes & Noble and Samsung on Wednesday jointly announced the Samsung the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook. It is essentially the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 tablet, rebranded and preloaded with B&N's content. The move immediately sparked a not-quite-favorable comparison to Amazon. "It's an impressive effort, but even if they take a beachhead, they can't hold it," said tech analyst Rob Enderle. "Amazon can easily afford to counter them if they need to, and it is more likely to run them out of business more quickly."

    HTC, which in recent years spurned Windows Phone for Android, on Tuesday returned to the Microsoft fold with the launch of a Windows Phone version of its flagship HTC One (M8) smartphone. The HTC One (M8) for Windows debuted as a Verizon Wireless network exclusive. The two-year contract price at Verizon Wireless is $200. AT&T also will carry the phone, but it hasn't said when that will be. The HTC One (M8) for Windows is identical to the recently unveiled Android version, except for the OS.

    Specs of the forthcoming Moto 360 smartwatch from Motorola appeared briefly on a Best Buy Web page this week, sparking increased chatter about the device. Concerns about price -- the watch was listed at $250 -- tempered the usual gasps of delight from geeks. Amazon lists a Samsung Galaxy Gear for $150, a Gear Live for $180, a Gear 2 Neo for $200, a Pebble Steel for $230, and an LG G Black Titan for $233. Given that Android device users are notoriously less willing to spend money than their iOS counterparts, who will purchase the Moto 360?

Whichever technology wins the race, one of the biggest concerns for OEMs is their electronic security. The Linux Foundation wants an open source platform in the pole position. The nonprofit consortium already has a fully functional Linux distribution. Automotive Grade Linux is a customizable, open source automotive software stack with Linux at its core.

Jetpac is the creator of a handful of apps, including City Guides, which analyzes Instagram photos and then automatically creates guides based on the collected data. That information translates into a lot of options for users. They can find bars that attract a younger crowd, the most scenic hiking trails, or the hippest coffee shops, for example. Jetpac has covered some 6,000 cities around the world using this approach.

Let’s have a contest at each conference for sleaziest booth. The vendor who wins gets a design-to-be-determined award sure to amplify their embarrassment and encourage them to grow up. Thoughts?

I’m sure I’ve even written a few headlines that played up the fear factor to get clicks. I’m human, and humans are often misguided. But if I’ve learned anything, it’s that throwing around words like “terrifying” and “scary” do more harm than good — especially when you’re using them at Black Hat, BSidesLV and DEF CON.

    If you’re prone to burning, and are never sure when you’ve been in the sun too long, it could now be as simple as wearing a UV-sensitive wristband, namely Smartsun. Designed by Swedish scientists, the new light-reactive bracelet changes colour from yellow to pink, warning wearers that it’s time to slap some sunscreen on and head into the shade. What’s great about Smartsun is that the bands have been designed for different skin types, as some people burn much more easily than others, me included. While the bands only cost £1, they only last a day, so could actually end up being…

We are focused on XboxOne, PS4, and PC. — Michael Condrey (@MichaelCondrey) August 20, 2014 Whilst the game was never confirmed for WiiU, the announcement will no doubt be seen as more bad news for WiiU gamers after last year’s Call of Duty: Ghosts found its way on to the console.

    Solar panels are the future – but are also difficult to fit into the home. But what if your windows could be used to generate power? New research from Michigan State University suggests solar cells could be completely transparent – replacing boring old glass. According to Science Daily the way it works is rather than absorbing visible, light, the cells instead only absorb non-visible light: think ultraviolet and infrared. This means that the glass can remain perfectly transparent (without appearing tinted) whilst still generating electricity. Brilliant. This could conceivably mean…

    There was a time when the ghost of Indian ‘can’t touch, won’t buy’ mentality bugged online retailers. But things seem to be taking a roundabout now. India has finally arrived at the e-commerce scene and how! In 2013 the e-retail segment took a whooping leap of 80% in the overall revenue and it is expected to increase another sevenfold in the next five years. Presently country’s online market-space is worth $3.1 billion annually, which is likely to become $22 Billion by the end of 2020 owing to improvement in internet connectivity, logistics and other infrastructure related…

    The founders of Siri are working on a new service called Viv that can link disparate sources of information together to answer questions: But Kittlaus points out that all of these services are strictly limited. Cheyer elaborates: “Google Now has a huge knowledge graph—you can ask questions like ‘Where was Abraham Lincoln born?’ And it can name the city. You can also say, ‘What is the population?’ of a city and it’ll bring up a chart and answer. But you cannot say, ‘What is the population of the city where Abraham Lincoln was born?’” The system may have the data for both…

    When I was growing up, I was fascinated by space. One of my earliest memories—and I know this is strange—is, when I was four or five years old, trying to grasp the concept of emptiness in space. I imagined the vast emptiness of space between galaxies, nothing but emptiness. I tried to imagine what that meant, but most of all, I tried to imagine what it would look like. That question, what color empty space would be, rolled around my brain the most. I couldn’t shake it. I would be doing something–playing Nintendo, coloring, whatever–and that question would pop into my…

The effects of what was announced will be felt and discussed for years to come. There is a lot to think through and write about, which I will be doing in the coming weeks. However, something struck me during the keynote that felt fairly small but, upon thinking about it afterward, I think could end up being important to Apple’s future success.

    Tesla plans to build a massive new lithium ion factory that would double world production volume. Doing so could dramatically change the car industry: When Tesla first began working on its Model S saloon barely five years ago, lithium-ion batteries were priced at about $1,000 a kilowatt-hour (kWh). Manufacturers are notoriously secretive about pricing details, but industry insiders hint that prices have now slipped to anywhere from $400 to $750 a kWh. Even so, that means the 85 kWh pack in a Model S costs Tesla between $34,000 and $63,750. A study by the Boston Consulting Group projected that…

    19 Aug 2014 | 8:51 pm
    It feels like I'm writing the same post over and over again - LG lowers the price of their OLED TV again... Only 7 days ago I posted that LG's 2013 OLED TV model, the 55EA9800 is down to $3,198. And I estimated that it's likely we'll see a 55" OLED TV for less than $3,000 very soon. Well! That did not take long. Amazon is now offering the EA9800 for only $2,799 via online retailer MCMelectronics.LG recently launched their new 2014 55" curved FHD model (the 55EC9300) for $3,499.

It was widely speculated that it adopts an OLED panel - especially as it is always on and the battery drain on an LCD will be quite large.But today Best Buy posted a product listing by mistake (they took it off-line a short while later) which revealed the Moto 360 specifications: and it uses a 1.5" 320x290 round LCD panel.

    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…

    Many desktop cases that boast about support for very long graphics cards can do it because they have removable HDD cages, or at least one set of bays that can be pulled out.

  • What I Learned On Vacation: Check Your Email

    Eric Dye
    20 Aug 2014 | 11:00 am
    Last month I had a vacation of sorts (as I mentioned before). During this time, I had some personal revelations about my life—both personally and work wise. I lend this to the fact that I spent multiple days at a time unplugged and completely disconnected from the Internet. No laptop. No tablet. No smartphone. I highly recommend you do it sometime—if not regularly. Not only did it force me to pause, clear my head, and have some self-reflection, but it also gave me a chance to contrast what I considered to be my ‘normal’ life with actual living. One of the things I learned and would…

    The video below is from Chick-fil-A and was “created to remind us that everyone we interact with is a chance to create a remarkable experience.” While it was produced as a type of training video for their employees, I think many church usher teams (as well as anyone on church staff or volunteers) should consider sharing this and/or made this a part of their training process.

  • A Fun Way to Mark Your Bible

    Jason Vana
    20 Aug 2014 | 7:00 am
    I love marking up my Bible when I study. I’m not sure if it’s the graphic designer in me (I like pretty colors) or the former English major coming out (sentence diagrams!!), but I just enjoy dissecting the text and finding the deeper—and much more personal—meaning. A quick flip through my Bible will prove my case. Highlights, underlines, arrows pointing to notes I wrote in the margins, boxes, color coded markings—it’s like a playground for my studious brain. But there’s one problem in this wondrous glory-land I call marking my Bible: It’s hard to find the…
  • Need for Remote Video Conferencing?

    Eric Dye
    20 Aug 2014 | 6:00 am
    When some people hear the phrase “remote video conferencing,” they inwardly cringe. In the past, remote video conferencing was less than ideal, to put it kindly. Those who are familiar with past methods of communication via video calls are well aware of the long stretches of unexpected silences and frequently posed question, “Can you hear me?” These frustrating breaches in communication created a sense of hesitation among business owners and managers concerning the use of video conferencing technology as a means of communication. However, recent innovations and advances in video…
  • Church Tech Confessionals [Video]

    Jeremy Smith
    20 Aug 2014 | 5:00 am
    The following video was made by Grace Church and there is not much more details to go with it, but this video encapsulates so much that I see in church tech. Of course, the video is made tongue and cheek for the humor factor, but there is an element of truth behind every one of the statements made. I wonder how many churches have departments that do not play well together, are not polite to their church techies, and look down on the volunteers and staff. I’d love to hear your own confessionals below and if you need a black bar over your eyes, don’t put your name in it—LOL!

  • AT&T Exclusivity Hindering Amazon Phone Sales

    20 Aug 2014 | 4:08 pm
    While AT&T exclusivity may be hurting Amazon phone sales, I don't think the price is doing it any favors either. Amazon keeps sales numbers secret but the firm came to that conclusion by tracking ad impressions generated by the phone's users. The fairly tepid sales are in large part thanks to the exclusive sales arrangement with AT&T, something we noted at launch didn't exactly scream cutting edge. Comments

  • Stop Buying Games At Launch

    20 Aug 2014 | 3:08 pm
    I think more and more people are starting to realize something you guys have known for a long time, buying games at launch is not such a good idea. Early adopters pay the most for a game and get the least finished version of the release. It's often worth it for them to play it along with the huge rush of other fans who want to be there first, but you don't have to join them, even if many are perfectly happy to sign up for the journey of a game's patches and updates and price drops rather than the pure destination of just playing the damned thing.

    Adam Thompson
    4 Aug 2014 | 10:50 am
    Everyone knows that robots are merely lifeless machines, no matter how amazing their abilities may be. However, you may be surprised at how often scientists replicate the features and capabilities of living creatures to increase robotic performance. In fact, there’s even a whole branch of robotics called “biomimetics” dedicated to that single premise. The term biomimetics means literally to “mimic life.” Insects are one form of life from which biomimetic scientists draw significant inspiration for new types of robotic technology. Functions and behaviors that evolved over…

    Professional web designers have been frustrated for years by coding. According to surveys conducted among web designers, about 70% of a budget is spent on coding. It is a major expense, increasing the cost of a project, thus eating into a designer’s profit margin. Coupled with the rapid growth of ecommerce and businesses needing an Internet presence, a designer’s workload can become problematic. Quick but professional turnaround is key, which leads some designers to visual website design platforms. Adobe, one of the most well-known companies in the design industry, recently…

    Very interesting article in the Economist about "Entrepreneurial" vs "Innovation" economics. the whole article is well worth reading as it is one of those very rare items in the UK "Tech Startup" space - a systemic analysis with actual numbers. There are 3 key points dealing with the UK's current Startup / "Every Person is an Entrepreneur" craze: Firstly, State money is wasted on funding too many entrpreneurial SMES with too little money, they do nothing for the economy overall: ....once you take into account the number of SME jobs lost after the first three years of their creation, there is…

    24 Jun 2014 | 7:19 am
    Robobuzz (Source: NESTA - see link in text) As readers of this blog may know, we started watching Robotics again in about 2008* when it became clear to us that the advance of Moore's Law meant that finally enough computer power and battery life made it possible to build robots with all their systems onboard, so they could become self-mobile and (to an extent) self directing. This change was labelled "3rd Generation" robotics (as always it was hyped long before it became reality, but over the last 5 years or so there has been a tipping point), and heralded a "Cambrian Explosion" in new robot…

  • Google's Self Drive Cars - just another Toll Road play

    19 May 2014 | 2:21 am
    From The Atlantic, it would seem that Google self drive cars rely hugely on the information about the road.: Today, you could not take a Google car, set it down in Akron or Orlando or Oakland and expect it to perform as well as it does in Silicon Valley. Here's why: Google has created a virtual track out of Mountain View. A Googler demonstrates what the self-driving car "sees." Note the background world on which the light traffic lights and their sightlines are displayed: that's the track. The key to Google's success has been that these cars aren't forced to process an entire scene from…

    In the US, over half of the mobile phones people are using are smartphones, so it's not surprising that there's a nascent market for smart devices trying to take advantage of this existing user base. Wearables like smartwatches and smartglasses are nifty gadgets, but there could be other smart-things that might be hanging around necks or strapped to our arms in the near future. One feature for all of these smart accessories could be personal protection -- allowing the wearer to signal to friends/family/police in an emergency situation.

    Eventually, video game companies are going to have to come to terms with the fact that their biggest fans can also be immensely creative and that they often want to channel that creativity towards adding to the game franchises they love. Thus far, the vast majority of fan-driven projects having anything to do with video game franchises are met with stonewall takedowns and cease and desist letters. The most frustrating of these are when mixed signals are sent to the fans engaged in these projects, where the people doing the work are under the impression that their efforts have been cleared for…
  • Behind The Veil Part 5: Comcast Metrics For All Employees As Simple As ABC, Always Be Closing

    In the ongoing fallout Comcast is facing due to the high-pressure sales tactics of their non-sales employees, the company has consistently indicated that these employees are not behaving in a manor consistent with the company's wishes. The common thread in most of these stories consists of customer service duties being handled by customer retention reps as often as not and complaints or attempts to cancel service being met with sales pitches instead of service. Comcast has specifically indicated that these examples are outside of the way they train employees to conduct their business.

    Times are tough for a patent troll, apparently. A year ago, we noted that Intellectual Ventures -- the world's largest patent troll, who brought in billions of dollars by getting companies to pay up a shakedown fee to avoid lawsuits over its giant portfolio of patents (mostly cast off from universities who couldn't find any other buyers) -- was running out of cash. While IV did convince Microsoft and Sony to dump in some more cash, IV's litigation strategy is in shambles. Various lawsuits are dropping like flies without any of the big wins that IV promised. Meanwhile, while its heavy lobbying…

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

    As was foretold by prophecy back in June, the Samsung Nook tablet is arriving this month. The collaboration between Samsung and the recently spun-off Nook Media has resulted in a 7″ tablet going by the name Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook. You’ll be able to find the new tablet in Barnes & Noble stores and online as of today, but should you? It’s the lightest Nook ever, so there’s that. It’s 9.74 oz, which still lags behind the 7.8 oz of the Kindle Paperwhite. Depending on what position you contort yourself into when you get to reading, that difference might matter…

    She’s turning 40 this year, but don’t dare call her over the hill. From the sound of it, the Hello Kitty world domination tour is just getting started.

    Sharp hasn’t been the biggest player in the smartphone market, but they are definitely impressing us with their new AQUOS Crystal smartphone for Sprint. For starters, this phone has just what we have been dreaming about – and that is a five-inch borderless HD display that goes right to the edge of the phone. The result is a mobile experience that is more immersive, and dear we say it – TV like. Unfortunately, the resolution is just 1280×720, which is solid, but could be even better. But it’s not just the visuals that impresses with the AQUOS Crystal smartphone…

    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…

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…

    As expected, HTC has just announced a new smartphone with Windows Phone called the HTC One M8 for Windows. The new device is the same as the HTC One M8 with Android, albeit it comes with Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 preinstalled. Sounds great, especially since it may be possible to dual boot or switch operating systems once the XDA crowd gets its hands on this thing. But then...

    Founded in 2010 and based in San Francisco, Nextdoor is a odd outlier among today's social networks. Signing up is an onerous process, requiring substantial proof of both your identification and address. People post messages, but they are seen only by others in the immediate area, and there is no share or retweet button to proliferate messages across the network. It feels more like a modern update on a message board or web forum than a social network. But it has struck a chord across the country. When The Verge first reported on Nextdoor back in July of 2012, it was in 3,500 neighborhoods.

    Earlier we heard the rumor about Microsoft offering Windows 9 (aka Windows Threshold) to Windows 8 users free of cost. Now another rumor is brewing about Windows 9, the successor of Windows 8.1.

Microsoft is also expected to offer a minor update, dubbed Update 2 to all Windows 8.1 Update 1 users. According to a blog post by ZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley, Windows 8.1 Update 2 will be in…

    Twitter, for many, has become a preferred medium of communication. Your email messages may never get read or, in the worst case, may get caught in the Spam folder but tweets and @mentions are very likely to get noticed. When you are travelling or going on a vacation, with limited access to the Internet, you often create an “out of office” reply in your email program to let people know that you won’t be able to respond to them right away. How about doing something similar for people who are trying to reach you through Twitter? What will the Twitter Auto-Responder do Unlike…

Without RSS feeds, it is difficult to use your Twitter data elsewhere. For instance, you can no longer create recipes in IFTTT that get triggered when there’s a new tweet that @mentions you. You cannot import your Twitter timeline automatically into your blog. You cannot track Twitter search results for certain keywords in your RSS reader. How to Create RSS…

This is putting pressure on businesses to develop apps, and develop them fast.

However, with the recently announced capabilities of DataDirect Cloud, businesses can leverage the Open Data Protocal (OData) to address those issues. For those that…

You hop between any number of systems in a given day (Salesforce, Eloqua, Oracle, SQL Server, HubSpot, etc.) and the only way to take control of your world is to dump all that data into one place and try to make some sense of it.

    Within the last 6 weeks, I’ve begun to understand why Facebook is such a narcissistic medium. If you’re sad, no one wants to deal with you. They may give you support, but if every post was sad and depressing, that trickles down to how you ultimately end up feeling. If you’re controversial, someone else will have another opinion and unfriend you. Happiness (without ego) is the only way to maintain good friendships, and usually, doesn’t impart negative judgments. Let’s dig into the second item there: controversy. As of late, there’s been a pretty big trend…

This is the “appification” of brand value. For decades, the key question has been “how valuable is the brand?” The key question moving forward is “how valuable are your apps?” Apple, of course, started this trend with the introduction of the first iPhone, but distilling entire companies…

    The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is back, and this time it is showing off in the AnTuTu benchmark. The Exynos 5433 touting variant of the Galaxy Note 4 made rounds on AnTuTu and is showing some impressive performance. By impressive, it means that the new processor bested Snapdragon 805 and took the spot close to the Tegra K1 by Nvidia. But considering how we are not going to see that in a smartphone, it is safe to say that currently, the Exynos 5433 is the fastest processor in the smart phone industry. The Note 4 carries the model number N910C for the Exynos 5433 variant and N910S for the Snapdragon…

    Exclusive games once defined the brands they were attached to and were major motivators in terms of console choice. In those days gamers chose the platform that aligned with their taste in gaming, and for the most part, these titles stayed within their selected exclusive boundaries. Even a quick cursory glance at the industry is enough to see that things have longed changed since those days where the Xbox and PlayStation 2 reigned supreme. And the definition of “exclusive” has shifted quite a bit. Now we have concepts like timed-exclusives, pre-loading and a slew of key AAA…

    The good folks over a shotkit.com recently featured me on their site and the contents of my camera bag. You can see all the other photography gear that I use here. People are always asking what kind of gear I shoot with. On the flip side of that coin when I’m out on tour people are always asking about the gear I use on stage to do my presentations. So I thought it was time for a “What’s in my bag?” update. My backpack weighs a ton. Every now and then I take everything out and try to only put back in the things that I’m using on a regular basis.

    We are not a road-trip family — we fly — but last week we drove from Chicago to Niagara Falls and Toronto. Which meant more than 20 hours in the car round-trip and between destinations. With two 5-year-olds. And so, they asked “why?” approximately 200,000 times. And we answered. Kids don’t hesitate to clarify, dig deeper, and understand precisely. Adults do. We don’t ask “why” for reasons that boil down to self-limiting beliefs: we don’t want to impose, offend, or project that we do not understand. These are confidence and self-esteem…

    When you tell people you’re great, you’re selling. People expect that of you, and take it with a grain (or several grains) of salt. Also, although marketing is no place for modesty, personal moderation, discomfort with boldness, “preferring to let our work” do the talking hold us back from blowing our own horn. All of which is why we must obtain and communicate the thoughts and feelings of our happy customers. With testimonials and case studies, we must let our customers tell their peers about what they love best about us. There is nothing we can say that is more…

Always, focus on your value. It’s far more compelling. Don’t tell me about your technical specifications of process. Tell me about how I’ll be improved after I buy from you. 2. Simpler is always better. Simplify your product, service, marketing effort and messaging. Then simplify it again. 3. Even in your marketing, help people. That’s all we’re doing…

    “If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.” —Isaac Newton There are dozens of great quotes attributed to Newton, but the aforementioned quote is definitely one of my favorites.   As one of the most influential scientists of all time and as a key figure in the scientific revolution, Newton’s contributions have impacted all areas of our lives, especially technology. One of the critical success factors for any tech company is “strategic partnerships.” Nowhere is this more critical, and more relevant, than during a market transition – and that’s…

    (thanks to by Brian Chee, Senior Contributing Editor, InfoWorld Test Center) Imagine the world’s deepest observatory at 3 miles below the sea surface. Now think about what a challenge it would be to monitor equipment for such a remote location.

    Talking to my customers, everybody is asking about the Internet of Things. There is so much information about the IoT, that it can be confusing to figure out how to solve your specific business problem with all the options available. Where the rubber meets the road is putting hardware, software, and services together to get to a cogent solution. All while reducing costs and time to market, of course. So when I heard someone wanting to connect to Bug Labs’ dweet.io I was intrigued. Here’s a service that claims to make the sending of data very easy. I don’t even have to sign up for a free…

    Samsung might be experiencing some trouble with the lack of revenue in recent months, but it is not going to hamper the progress of the smartphone manufacturing giant in delivering its flagship devices to the technological populace. While the Galaxy Note 3 was a beast in terms of performance and features, it is about to be usurped by its successor; the Galaxy Note 4, whose specifications have been leaked. The Galaxy Note 4 will possess a 5.7 inch screen, which is the same screen size as its predecessor, with a slight touch in upping the total number of pixels in that screen size. First off,…

    The e-commerce giant and Jeff Bezos’ Fire Phone might be packed with a lot of great features; but there were initial problems that were to be encountered with the device, as expected. While it is common for software to start developing bugs and issues overtime, the fact that these issues are able to get written off or at the very least mitigated, is very impressive. While the device did not have technical specifications that would leave users awestruck, it has enough features to steal their hearts. The first update for the Fire Phone has allowed users to finally take control of the…

    Depending on how you would like to perceive the idea, the IXION Jet concept either has no windows or it has windows all over. Nevertheless, it will engage every passenger on board with the environment outside. A Paris based design company, Technicon Design, has come up with the concept of IXION Windowless Jet. The idea is to provide a 360 degree view by capturing the scenery using cameras mounted on the plane’s exterior. The interior walls of the aircraft are floor to ceiling monitors that display what the cameras see. Shouldn’t we say, then, that every seat on this plane is a window…

    The world of robotics is taking a futuristic turn; instead of depending on a single robot, a complex task would be performed by a large group of self-organizing robots. The scary robot swarm was unveiled at Harvard University where roboticists have successfully designed and developed 1024 mini robots called “Kilobots”; each of these robots occupies a space of a couple of inches and has three wired legs to stand on. Kilobots work as a team and enjoy great coordination between themselves; they receive command through a pair of infrared emitter sensor. The team of researchers built these…

Microsoft is fixing the problem with a new update. Skype has a new “active endpoint” feature that will only send you chat notifications on the device you are using. For example, if you are chatting on your phone, then the notifications will only show up on your phone. At the same time, the chat history is still synced across multiple devices so if you want to pick up the conversation on another device,…

      The modern smartphone is 7 years old and yet, when it comes to designing mobile applications, we are still barely scratching the surface. Today we’ll see how harnessing technology already embedded in a phone can unleash great potential.  A mobile news app has simple goals: Capture and retain reader attention, and repeat the process, several times a day. Pretty straightforward. But not that simple in the real world. For a news provider, the smartphone screen is the the most challenging environment ever seen. There, chances are that a legacy media or a pure-player will find itself in…

Dear Tim, You know the numbers better than anyone — I don’t need to quote them to you — but we all know that the iOS App Store is a veritable gold mine. Unfortunately, the App Store isn’t being mined in the best interests of Apple’s customers and developers, nor, in the end, in the interests of the company itself. The App Store may be a gold mine, but it’s buried in an impenetrable jungle. Instead…

I might have been wrong. “I don’t know exactly when, but sooner or later, Macs will run on Apple-designed ARM chips.” Thus spake Matt Richman in a 2011 blog post titled “Apple and ARM, Sitting in a Tree”. Richman explained why, after a complicated but ultimately successful switch from PowerPC chips to Intel processors in 2005, Apple will make a similar switch, this time to ARM-based…

  • Are Nomad upgrades always easy?

    Troy Martin
    20 Aug 2014 | 4:17 am
    That’s a simple question, but as with practically everything in the world of computer management, “it depends” is the right answer. As the product manager for Nomad I would love to guarantee they always are, but there are the occasional exceptions so I’d rather advise you to do a bit of due diligence. To aid that process I’m pleased to announce the availability of a comprehensive new technical whitepaper, our “Nomad Upgrades Guide”, available here: Nomad Upgrades Guide – 1E Resource Center I’ve worked with my fellow product manager, Paul Thomsen, and a broad team of…

    Continuing along from the previous installment of this series (Using iSCSI to connect to Shared Storage) we’ll take a look at configuring the disks you have attached to your prospective cluster nodes. In the previous article we used one of several methods for connecting to shared storage. Regardless of the method employed, you will continue preparing for your cluster by configuring the disks in the OS of each node. We should all know the steps to initializing disks and creating partitions, but I’ll go through them here, with an additional note or two about some things you’ll…
  • The Dark Side of SQL Server… When Good Queries Go Bad

    Andrew Mayo
    15 Aug 2014 | 5:10 am
    It was said somewhere in Lord of the Rings that Wizards ‘are subtle and quick to anger,’ and substituting ‘SQL Server’ in this phrase proves to be also true. Over the last couple of years I have had a number of issues with SQL Server which specifically involve self-referencing updates. A self-referencing update uses the destination table in the query associated with the update. These problems occasionally cause catastrophic, unpredictable degradation in query performance which has caused CM syncs to suddenly degrade and in some cases never complete. It is becoming evident that…

    I have been involved in creating High Availability solutions for our NightWatchman Enterprise products and as part of that work have recently worked with Windows Failover Clustering and NLB clustering in Windows Server 2012.I thought it might be good to share my experiences with implementing these technologies. I’ve built multi-node failover clusters for SQL Server, Hyper-V, various applications, and Network Load Balancing clusters. The smallest clusters were two node SQL Server clusters. I’ve built 5 node Hyper-V clusters. The largest clusters I’ve built were VMware…
  • HttpClient performance

    Garfield Moore
    11 Aug 2014 | 2:26 am
    I was able to dramatically improve the performance of HttpClient by removing one line of code. Take the below snippet; var httpClientHandler = new HttpClientHandler() { UseDefaultCredentials = true, PreAuthenticate = false, ClientCertificateOptions = ClientCertificateOption.Automatic }; var webclient = new HttpClient(httpClientHandler); The offending line of code is highlighted. This code averaged 20 seconds per 100 requests. Using the default ClientCertificateOption.Manual this improved to 4 seconds. I couldn’t understand why this would be, so I cracked open HttpClient with Jetbrains…

    Living on other planets has seemed a bit farfetched because essential supplies for humans—oxygen and water—are not readily available. Now, MIT is stepping up to the oxygen challenge—for both humans to breathe and rocket fuel to ignite for a homeward journey. You could say MIT has the moxie to invent MOXIE. MOXIE, an oxygen factory for Mars. NASA recently announced that the MIT-led payload, called MOXIE, will be among the seven instruments that will accompany Mars 2020, a planned $1.9 billion roving laboratory similar to the Mars Curiosity.

    16 Aug 2014 | 10:00 pm
    9 years ago today, on 17th August 2005, I was just one of seventeen brave (or foolhardy) people who announced that they were leaving the very successful Mambo project and starting out on their own. It was a snap decision and truth be told if we had stopped to think about how much work lay ahead of us in the coming months I suspect we might not have been in such a rush. We were greatly helped at the time by Eben Moglen of the Software Freedom Law Centre and I believe we were their first "clients". Just two weeks later, on 1st September, our new baby had a name and the world was introduced…

There are just times when things become a constant battle of frustration and nothing seems worth the effort and that's exactly where I was. After months of preparation for JAB14 I was no longer interested and was determined that this would be my last JAB and probably my last Joomla event. Mood 0/10 I had convinced my JAB teammates to introduce two new features for 2014 and I was no longer certain that the Make it Happen or…
  • Create your own Joomla manual

    28 May 2014 | 10:00 pm
    Documentation in any Open Source project is seen as the Holy Grail. It's great to have but somehow never quite fulfils the needs of the users. Joomla has an excellent documentation resource but I think it is fair to categorise these docs mainly as "reference" material and not "user guides". There are some excellent books and some truly awful books but without exception they are generic titles targeted as the site builder or site programmer. If you build sites for people or you have had a site built for you, you don't need or want a thousand page manual, you want a simple twenty page guide…

    Normally, when we think of technical-related training, images of rooms loaded with switches, routers, and servers might come to mind.    Cloud computing is different.  In reality, cloud computing is not a technology, but rather a framework employing a variety of technologies – most notably virtualization, to solve business problems or enable opportunities. From our own practice, the majority of cloud training students represent non-technical careers and positions. Our training does follow the CompTIA Cloud Essentials course criterion, and is not a technical course, so the non-technical…

    In skiing, the “black diamond” run or ski slope is often referred to as “high risk/high reward.” You receive lots of “reward” skiing the black diamond slopes, but you have a significant amount of “risk” associated with variable terrain, such as the presence of trees and the possibility of injury. However, the black diamond slopes are very fun to experience, and you can mitigate the risks with preparation, practice, and a really good skiing helmet.

    Daniel Dekański

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

The real adventure nowadays is to use existing pieces to create something innovating and attractive. The real engineering is the ability to combine available libraries and frameworks into something that works flawlessly in every conditions. In one of my previous posts I showed you…

    When ride-sharing company Lyft announced its new service Lyft Line — which, for those unaware, lets people headed in the same direction share the cost of a ride together — the first thing I thought of was the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). Weird, I know. But CPUC was behind last year’s rule legitimizing for-profit ridesharing companies like Lyft, Sidecar, and Uber for legal operation within the state. Without that action, it’s safe to say an idea like Lyft Line would’ve been a major uphill climb — if it saw the light of day at all. At the announcement of the new…

Although the chances of it coming to the Philippines is next to nil, this Android phone will be coming to Japan and the US (non-GSM). What’s interesting about the Aquos Crystal is its design. Looking at the images, you’ll notice that there’s almost no bezels on the top and sides of it’s 5-inch screen. You’ll also notice that the front camera is located at the bottom. Other specs include the 5-inch 720p screen, a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400…

    18 Aug 2014 | 8:33 pm
    The Flare 3 is currently a hit for the local company Cherry Mobile. Inventory runs out wherever it was sold. I’ve already gushed about it during my initial impressions of the device. Now, let’s find out why this P3,999 wonder is the “Best Flare Ever.” Full review up next. WHAT’S IN THE BOX: The packaging of the Flare 3 is pretty simple and efficient.

  • Smart Announced Availability of LTE-Advanced. 5G is here!

    I can’t believe that its been 2 years since Smart Communications launched Long-Term Evolution (LTE) or 4G in the country. I was eager to test it as soon as I got my hands on an LTE capable phone. It was fast. YouTube videos loaded, with minimal to none buffering times. And now, Smart has announced the availability of a faster LTE-Advance (LTE-A)/5G. The local telco has been testing the service since August last year, and they were able to record speeds of up to 209.66 mbps. Pretty fast if you ask me. As claimed by Smart: With LTE-A, a 10MB file takes less than a second to download,…
  • Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Alpha. Its not your typical Galaxy phone.

    Bryan
    17 Aug 2014 | 7:33 pm
    In case you haven’t read about it yet, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Alpha last week. The Korean electronics giant has always been known to have multiple products in different categories, so I thought it was going to be another flagship. Turns out this one is a bit different. Its definitely a premium handset, but not really a flagship. It looks like the design is a departure from your typical Galaxy phone. First, it sports an aluminum chassis (albeit the back is plastic). It also has a rather “smallish” 4.7 inch 720p SuperAMOLED screen. Although it looks a bit like an…

  • Twitter Offers Analytics for Organic Tweets

    Dave Paul
    18 Aug 2014 | 11:45 am
    Twitter is one of those things you’re “supposed” to do. It’s a way to reach your audience and promote your brand, essentially for free. But how much are you actually reaching people? Do your tweets get read, do your links get clicked, and would paying to promote tweets be a great marketing spend or a total waste of cash? Until recently, those are questions most business owners couldn’t answer. That’s because “organic” tweets—the ones you send out every day, without paying anything—had no analytics support. No data. No way to see what was working. Twitter changed that a…

On this matter, the other days I was browsing through some reviews to find out more about my latest favorite game, Dark Souls 2 which by the way, it rocks. But, I'm not making video games reviews here. The thing is that while checking the Gamespot review, I noticed a very nice and original loader somehow inspired by the above tagline.

    Imgur has come a long way since its humble beginnings more than five years ago. Earlier this year the company announced it has more than 130 million visitors monthly, roughly the same as Buzzfeed, Fortune reported. Still the startup is working in the same space it's had for almost three years, CEO and founder Alan Schaaf told Business Insider. Before that, operations were based out of Ohio, where Schaaf studied. This fall, Imgur is making the move from its small downtown San Francisco office near Union Square to a more appropriately sized space in Jackson Square. But before they begin packing…

    HP reported Wednesday its first jump in year-over-year quarterly revenue in three years. You would think that investors would be thrilled. But the stock didn't soar in after-hours trading on Wednesday. It dropped a tiny bit. Wall Street is wary 0f HP's ongoing, extended layoffs. And analysts aren't sure if this great quarter, driven by PC sales, isn't a one-hit wonder. To recap: HP bested analysts sales expectations by $570 million, fueled by 12% growth in HP's PC business. It reported $27.6 billion in revenue, up 1% over the year-ago quarter. Analysts were expecting $27.01 billion in…

The battery life problem is unlikely to be solved anytime soon, but the plugging into a wall problem may soon be a thing of the past. A number of companies are trying to figure out wireless charging technologies.

We've seen renders of the larger iPhone 6 before, but this is the first time we're seeing what appears to be the phone's actual shell. This week we learned that the larger of the two iPhone coming out this fall might be called the iPhone 6L. If true, this would be a neat way to distinguish between the two handsets. On the other hand, the L in iPhone 6L supposedly stands for Large, and you'd think Apple could come up with a better name…

    One of the USB ports on my desktop computer stopped working after I had plugged in a USB device and removed it without ejecting. I’ve done it a million times, but it looked like my luck finally ran out. The port seemed fine in Device Manager because there were no error or warning icons. So after doing a bit of reading online, I came across a Microsoft article that told me I should go ahead and uninstall the USB Host Controllers under USB Serial Bus Controllers in Device Manager. After that, you just have to restart your computer and Windows should find the hardware again and install it.

  • Scientists developing remote-control cyborg moths

    Ben Coxworth
    20 Aug 2014 | 3:41 pm
    We've been hearing a lot about the development of tiny flying sensor-equipped robots, that could be sent into areas such as disaster sites to seek out survivors or survey the damage. However, why go to the trouble of designing those robots from scratch, when there are already ready-made insects that are about the right size? That's the thinking behind research being conducted at North Carolina State University, which is aimed at converting moths into "biobots." ..

    A team of chemical engineers from MIT has developed a new method of stimulating bone growth, by utilizing the same chemical processes that occur naturally in the human body following an injury such as a broken or fractured bone. The technique involves the insertion of a porous scaffold coated with growth factors that prompt the body's own cells to naturally mend the damaged or deformed bone...

    Getting your first PAID web design client is the most important action you can take for your coding career… whether you plan to be a freelance web designer long-term or not. It’s THAT important because it immediately makes everything much more clear: You see if you actually like coding You figure out what your clients expect from you You understand what to charge and why And, most importantly… you gain CONFIDENCE. You get to see first-hand that people WILL pay you money to code for them and that you CAN deliver. On the flip side, NOT getting your first client leaves…
  • How to Position Yourself to Get More Freelance Jobs

    John Morris
    6 Aug 2014 | 6:28 am
    I was recently asked: “How do I fill out my profile on sites like Elance and oDesk? How do I fill them out in a way that’s honest but more impressive than leaving them blank?” Here’s the simplest way I can put this… Your unique situation can and SHOULD be positioned to highlight your advantages. For example, when I started looking to get hired for freelance IT jobs I was completely self-taught and I believed that was a disadvantage. I believed coders who had gone to school were in a better position than me and would have an easier time convincing clients to hire…
  • Most Web Designers Don’t Do This… But It’s How I Get 99% of My Freelance Jobs

    John Morris
    31 Jul 2014 | 4:40 am
    Most freelancers and web designers immediately roll their eyes when I say the word, “branding”. Mostly because they’re thinking of big brand branding done by companies like Coke or McDonalds… that’s “not meant to actually make sales”. Yet, “branding” is how I get 99% of my clients. In fact, you’re here reading this right now because of the “branding” I do. So, if you can put aside all the mis-information you’ve probably heard about the word “branding”… Check out the video below and let me show you…

    Segment 1: Web Design Trends You Need to Watch Out For (2:56) Several years ago when the “Web 2.0″ movement hit, I lost my entire freelance business because I didn’t actually know how to code. I had been using MS FrontPage to build static HTML web sites for clients. And the move to dynamic database-driven web sites killed me. That taught me to pay close attention to web trends and to break them down to understand the larger motivations at work. So, I could begin to predict trends and stay ahead of the curve.

  • How to Rename Files in Linux

    Ivana Isadora Devcic
    20 Aug 2014 | 7:50 am
    Renaming files is not a particularly advanced operation; as long as it’s done on a small number of files, it usually doesn’t require special tools. However, when there’s an entire folder of photos from last year’s vacation waiting to be renamed, it might be wise to consider some time-saving tricks or apps.There are two general approaches to batch file renaming: it can be done either via the command-line interface or by using a standalone application. Linux users already know how powerful the CLI can be, so it shouldn’t be surprising that there are several…

    19 Aug 2014 | 4:25 pm
    When developing a website, a web designer needs to be able to see his webpages the same way the end user would. Sometimes simply clicking on and viewing your HTML files in the web browser is enough, but if you want to test dynamic content, you will need to set up a local web server. Doing this is quite simple and can easily be accomplished on Windows, Mac, and Linux. There are many types of web servers available, but we will be using Apache as it is the most common server around, very easy to set up, and compatible with all major operating systems.Set up local web server on LinuxApache was…

Anyone who buys a new pen drive decides to go for a minimum 16GB pen drive today considering the very small price difference from the 8 GB ones.

    The Linux desktop community has reached a sad state. Ubuntu 14.04 was a disappointing release and Fedora is taking way too long between releases. Hell, OpenSUSE is an overall disaster. It is hard to recommend any Linux-based operating system beyond Mint. Even the popular KDE plasma environment and its associated programs are in a transition phase, moving from 4.x to 5.x. As exciting as KDE 5 may be, it is still not ready for prime-time; it is recommended to stay with 4 for now. In the midst of disappointing releases from the big names, relative newcomer KaOS keeps plugging away and focusing…

  • Threshold: Windows for the Neanderthal set

    Randall C. Kennedy
    20 Aug 2014 | 10:35 am
    What’s with all this excitement over Windows "Threshold"? I get it that Microsoft sort of fumbled the ball with Windows 8. I also recognize that the subsequent tweaks and retrofits (Windows 8.1, Windows 8.1 Update 1, Windows 8.1 Not-Update-2, et al) are viewed by many as "too little, too late" to save the product. However, I’m sensing a deeper disturbance in the force here. When it comes to Windows Threshold, there’s a palpable aura of anticipation -- a kind of electric expectancy, and its emanating from what I like to call the "Neanderthal set". You know the type. The IT dinosaurs. The…

  • Cloud storage growth is hurting NAS & SAN storage vendors

    Ray
    20 Aug 2014 | 3:20 pm
    Strange Clouds by michaelroper (cc) (from Flickr) My friend Alex Teu (@alexteu, from Oxygen Cloud wrote a post today about how Cloud Storage is Eating the World Alive. Alex reports that all major NAS and SAN storage vendors lost revenue this year over the previous year ranging from a ~3% loss to over a 20% loss (Q1-2014 compared to Q1-2013, from IDC). Although an interesting development, it’s hard to say that this is the end of enterprise storage as we know it.  I believe there are a number of factors that are impacting  enterprise storage revenues and Cloud storage adoption may be…

    Read an article today in Wired about The Internet has grown too big for its aging infrastructure showing up as a serious problem that’s soon to be more widespread. This Y2K-like problem is associated with the Border Gateway Protocol  (BGP) routing tables entries which represent IP address prefixes.  Internet routers keep BGP tables in Tertiary Content Addressable Memory (TCAM, sort of like a virtual memory page table only for router addresses) and there are physical limits as to how many BGP entries will fit into any specific Internet router.  Some routers crash when they exceed…

And as the technology of more sophisticated neuromorphic chips starts to emerge it seems to me to herald a whole new class of AI capabilities coming online. I suppose it’s both a bit frightening as well as exciting which is why it interests me so. IBM announced a new version of their neuromorphic chip line, called TrueNorth with +5B transistors and the equivalent of ~1M neurons. There were a number of articles on this yesterday but the one I found most interesting was in MIT Technical Review, IBM’s…

    The founder & CTO of Sonian, Greg Arnette, recently suggested I read 10% Happier, the personal journey of an ABC correspondent who discovered meditation as a way to calm his “monkey mind.” I’d never heard of monkey mind before, which is a Buddhist term that means "unsettled; restless; capricious; whimsical; fanciful; inconstant; confused; indecisive; uncontrollable". But after reading the book and attempting my first almost laughable meditation session, I self-diagnosed myself with a serious case of chronic monkey mind. It’s amazing I never noticed it before, but I sometimes have…
  • 6 Things You Might Not Know About Amazon Reserved Instances

    Joe Kinsella

    Reserved instances allow you to make a one-time payment to Amazon in return for a discount on your compute costs. The rationale for reserved pricing is simple: by getting customers to commit to the usage of specific infrastructure, Amazon can better manage their capacity, and therefore pass these savings on to their customers. By now we are all likely well aware of the various options for reserved instances, including types (Heavy, Medium, Light) and terms (1 and 3 year). But here are 6 thing you may not know about reserved instances. 1 - The Dual Benefits Reserved instances provide two…
  • CloudFront: A Low Cost Alternative To Premium CDNs

    Joe Kinsella
    8 Aug 2014 | 1:25 pm
    I've been noticing a steady uptick in the interest in Amazon CloudFront recently, driven by what appears to be a commoditization in the CDN market. This market shift is opening up an opportunity for less feature rich / more cost effective offerings to compete with the premium services such as Akamai. One of the challenges in adopting CloudFront as your CDN is that it is not a premium service. It lacks many of the features and tools users have come to expect from more sophisticated offerings. But in return it has one compelling advantage: it is cheap. So for those of you looking to gain the…
  • Sprint Planning at CloudHealth

    While sprint planning is an important activity for any software development organization, it takes on a new level of criticality in a startup. A good sprint planning process can improve the likelihood for success of a young company; a bad one can directly contribute to its failure. So I’m always curious to hear how others run their sprint planning, in part to pilfer new ideas, but also since it provides incredible insight into how other organizations work (note: nothing reveals the good, bad and ugly of an organization faster than attending a sprint planning meeting). So I thought I’d…

The company I had joined was on the verge of spiraling out of control, I was working yet another 70+ hour week, and my team was under intense pressure for what seemed like an impossible deadline. But all I could remember thinking is: "I can't believe I'm getting paid to do this job!" In over 20 years, that passion for building software has never left me.
