    I just returned from attending the gathering of over 250 women in IT security at the Executive Women’s Forum national conference in Scottsdale, Arizona.

    Sylvie GUILLON
    28 Oct 2014 | 12:40 pm
    No one needs another reminder of the strategic importance of information security.  For that, one need only scan the headlines, which regularly feature major brands that are losing customers, investors and even their chief executives in the wake of high-profile data breaches or compliance breakdowns. The threats are real. The consequences are dire. Even board members are now painfully aware of these new realities. So if we’re all sufficiently terrified, what is the relentless tide of bad news telling us that we don’t already know? Put simply, it is telling us that the…

  • New Study Shows Three Abrupt Pulses of CO2 During Last Deglaciation

    vinces99 writes A new study shows that the increase of atmospheric carbon dioxide that contributed to the end of the last ice age more than 10,000 years ago did not occur gradually but rather was characterized by three abrupt pulses. Scientists are not sure what caused these abrupt increases, during which carbon dioxide levels rose about 10 to 15 parts per million – or about 5 percent per episode – during a span of one to two centuries. It likely was a combination of factors, they say, including ocean circulation, changing wind patterns and terrestrial processes. The finding,…

    29 Oct 2014 | 5:25 am
    There was a time not that long ago that making a television was the pride of manufacturers. The U.S. industry was dominated by the likes of Motorola, RCA, and Magnavox (Philips). Today they have ceased to exist or have left the industry. The makers such as Sony want a way out, and the U.S business is dominated by Vizio and others who  have learned to sell at the bottom of the market. Tech manufacturers have discovered that computer making is much like TV history. In the early days, there were lots of computer makers, but many of them failed attempts to make much money, from AT&T to Texas…

And this video of the iPhone 6 display is obviously legit so can we just put that behind us and discuss the topic at hand? Great. According to many sources, the iPhone will introduce the first display on a mobile phone made out of…

  • How — and how not — to travel for running races

    Claire Trageser
    30 Oct 2014 | 11:00 pm
    More than 50,000 runners are expected to travel to New York City this Sunday for the marathon. If you’re one of them, or if you’ve ever traveled to compete in an athletic event, you know that there are a lot of ways things can go wrong. You’re staying in an unfamiliar place, eating unfamiliar food and sleeping in an unfamiliar bed.

  • Australian politicians are just as confused by metadata as you are

    Metadata can be confusing. Just ask Prime Minister Tony Abbott, Attorney-General George Brandis and Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull. They've been changing their minds about data and what it actually means for years On Thursday, the Australia Government introduced a data retention bill to Parliament. The main focus of the proposed legislation is to ensure Internet service providers and telecommunication companies retain customer's metadata for a two-year period, so the government can fight crime.

  • Plantronics BackBeat Pro: Wireless headphones you'll actually want to use

    Stan Schroeder
    30 Oct 2014 | 9:32 pm
    Anyone who's ever been to a tech expo such as IFA, where Plantronics first showed its BackBeat Pros, knows that the headphone market is an extremely crowded space. Choices abound: Prosumer and high-end headphones from companies such as Sennheiser, all-around, stylish cans like the ones from Beats Audio, and in-ear headphones which come in a zillion flavors But there's one space in the world of headphones that's not quite overpopulated yet — the Bluetooth, wireless, noise-canceling, over-the-ear headphones. It sounds like a tiny niche, but actually these are the headphones most of us…

  • Spain Passes Copyright Law; Demands Payment For Snippets And Linking To Infringing Content

    Mike Masnick
    30 Oct 2014 | 9:12 pm
    Apparently ignoring just how badly this worked out for publishers in Germany, the Spanish Parliament has passed a law to fine aggregators and search engines for using snippets or linking to infringing content. As plenty of folks have described, the bill is clearly just a Google tax. As we had discussed, the proposed bill would be a disaster for digital commons/open access projects. There had been some thought that the proposed bill might be delayed because of a referral to the EU Court of Justice on a related issue, but apparently that didn't happen. Either way, it looks like the bill kept…

    Technology is becoming ever more essential in our daily lives, but as long as the devices we use are still separate things outside of our bodies, we haven't yet fully adapted to technology. However, as technology gets a bit more advanced, it won't seem too strange to start implanting technology in ourselves. If you wear contact lenses, maybe you think you're a pioneer. But there are far more extreme examples, and some folks are really taking it to the next level.

  • Vermont's Automatic License Plate Readers: 7.9 Million Plates Captured, Five Crimes Solved

    Tim Cushing
    30 Oct 2014 | 3:27 pm
    The sales pitch for automatic license plate readers is how great they are at helping cops solve crimes. From hunting down stolen cars to tracking pedophiles across jurisdictions, ALPRs supposedly make policing a breeze by gathering millions of time/date/location records every single day and making it all available to any law enforcement agency willing to buy the software and pay the licensing fees. The systems come with civil liberties baggage -- privacy issues that aren't completely articulable, at least not in terms of what the courts have held to contain sufficient expectations of privacy.

    Via Jim Romenesko, here's a rather ugly story about stifling speech. Unfortunately, the entity doing the stifling is also one of the greatest beneficiaries of free speech protections. The Northeast Ohio Media Group last week posted a video of Ohio Gov. John Kasich and challenger Ed FitzGerald meeting with the editorial board, then took it down without explanation and replaced it with an audio recording. This media group (NOMG) owns the Cleveland Plain Dealer, which recently hosted a pre-endorsement Q&A with the three candidates for governor. It wasn't a debate. FitzGerald apparently…

    Oh, Verizon. When all the big broadband providers filed their original comments with the FCC concerning its net neutrality/open internet proposal, Verizon's comments were a little different than the others. Comcast and AT&T were pretty effusive in supporting FCC boss Tom Wheeler's proposal to rely on Section 706 rather than Title II. Verizon, however, seemed to push back against any new rules, even under 706. Verizon noted that it wanted to do whatever the hell it wanted, even if it meant "differentiated services" (i.e., paid prioritization, fast lanes, slow lanes, etc.): ...consumer…

  • XTERRA Point Mugu 18K Trail Race Report – 2014

    12 Oct 2014 | 11:19 pm
    After the last two weeks of abnormally hot weather on the Central Coast, things finally cooled down and my running heated up some at the 2014 XTERRA Point Mugu 18K trail race. 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…
  • Bulldog 25K at Malibu Creek State Park Race Report

    26 Aug 2014 | 6:49 am
    I completed the Bulldog 25K trail race this past weekend, August 23 2014. This was my longest and only second trail race. 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…

    After finishing the XTERRA Malibu Creek 22K race in May, I took some time to pick my next challenge. 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 good news was that it wasn’t as hot as it had been all week (high 90’s and low 100’s) but it was still plenty hot in the high 80’s. This was my first of hopefully many trail races and it was a bit of a beast. I decided to do the race about three weeks ago and only had one chance to check out part of the course. I blogged about that experience in my pre-race report. Having never tried to tackle the infamous Bulldog Road portion of the course before, I tried to figure out how tough it…

No I didn’t see Justin Bieber but I did have a fancy Porsche tailgating me as I tried to find the park entrance. I had run into the XTERRA Malibu Creek Trail Run race in a magazine and thought I’d check out the site. Once I got to the Park I found out that parking was $12 and that they didn’t take credit. If you go to a park and have cash on hand, pay it. They need the revenue. I didn’t have it so I parked up across the street. More on this in a bit. If you’re more of a…

Huawei isn’t ruling out a 5.0 bump for… Continue reading Oh, the humanity: Huawei says no to KitKat for Ascend Mate 2 Related posts: CES 2014: Huawei Ascend Mate 2 Goes Official with 4G LTE and…

    30 Oct 2014 | 1:18 pm
    Microsoft on Wednesday made another foray into the mobile health market with the introduction of the Microsoft Band, powered by its new Microsoft Health platform. The band, which is available at Microsoft Stores for $200 as of Thursday, is designed to be worn 24 hours a day. It has 10 sensors. In addition to the usual monitoring capabilities -- heart rate, sleep quality, calorie burn, exercise -- the band will notify wearers of incoming calls, emails, texts and social updates.
  • Apple Pay vs. CurrentC: Prelude to the Beacon Wars

    Chris Maxcer
    30 Oct 2014 | 7:30 am
    The current dustup between Apple Pay and CurrentC is a stark, bleak mess. That's not because Apple promises an easier, more secure way of making a smartphone-based retail transaction. Nor is it because CurrentC wants to harvest data on you and provide behavior-bending coupons, incentives and special deals, while cutting out the middleman credit card processing industry. It gets worse. Paying by smartphone -- which seems like a new and cool convenience -- is just the start of an unavoidable new in-person retail experience.
  • The Long and Winding Road to Shellshock Recovery

    Richard Adhikari
    29 Oct 2014 | 7:32 pm
    Four days after the Shellshock vulnerability was disclosed, Incapsula's Web application firewall deflected more than 217,000 attempted exploits on more than 4,100 domains. The company recorded upwards of 1,970 attacks per hour, from more than 890 IPs around the world. Shellshock was expected to be far worse than the Heartbleed flaw, which was expected to impact about 17 percent of the secure Web servers worldwide. That added up to about 500,000 servers. That's because Shellshock lets the hacker take over -- whereas Heartbleed did not.

    29 Oct 2014 | 1:44 pm
    HP on Wednesday announced its Blended Reality ecosystem, consisting of HP Multi Jet Fusion, an advanced 3D printer; and Sprout by HP -- a combination scanner, depth sensor, high-res camera and projector that provides 3D images of items and enables real-time remote collaboration. The ecosystem might revolutionize manufacturing, sharply reducing the design-to-prototype cycle and making it easy to customize products. It also might let individual entrepreneurs -- the traditional backyard shops -- carve a niche for themselves in the market.

    29 Oct 2014 | 5:00 am
    While some people are vaguely aware that movement can be converted into electrical energy -- think wrist watches or emergency crank flashlights -- a new Kickstarter project has created Ampy, a small, wearable battery pack that can harness the kinetic motion of common humans and release it back into smartphones, smartwatches and other USB-powered electronic gadgets. If you walk about 10,000 steps, cycle for one hour, or run for 30 minutes, you can generate about three hours of smartphone life.

    30 Oct 2014 | 11:18 am
    Verizon Wireless and AT&T are inserting header codes into mobile traffic data that enables them to track customers' browsing activities over LTE, 4G and 3G networks, according to an online security expert. The "unique identifier header," or UIDH, can be used to understand customer Web habits and deliver more targeted advertising to them. AT&T said it is only testing the use of UIDHs, and is not currently running a mobile-relevant advertising program that would use such ID-tracked information. Verizon Wireless, which did not respond to our phone calls or e-mails, has been using the tracking…

    30 Oct 2014 | 11:00 am
    It's been a problem for users ever since the infancy of Web browsers: bookmark bloat. Now, Google's new bookmark manager can offer some efficiency and tidiness to how your bookmarks are stored. Bookmark Manager, a new extension from the Chrome Web Store, represents Google's new solution for the problem of having too many bookmarks and no sensible way to handle them all. The old bookmark manager, called Google Stars, is no longer available from the Chrome Web Store. When Bookmark Manager is installed, the user's bookmarks are transformed into snippets of Web page previews, instead of just the…

    The latest entry into the fitness wearables market -- the $199 Microsoft Band -- is now on sale, both online and at Microsoft Stores. Upon announcing its new fitness-tracking wristband Wednesday, Microsoft also unveiled its Health platform, a cloud-based service for managing and analyzing health- and fitness-related data from wearables and other devices and services.

    Making a major change to its usually staid design philosophy, Hewlett-Packard unveiled an all-in-one PC that seems to take its design cues from Apple. Called the Sprout, the new machine features a built-in projector and surface-enabled touch designed to make 3D scanning and printing easy. HP is shooting for the high end with the Sprout, and in particular seems to be taking aim at creative professionals. The new PC will become available November 9 for $1,899, although the company is already taking pre-orders. HP said it had been working on the new PC for about five years, and it has 70…

  • Data Breach Victims or Enablers?

    19 Sep 2014 | 8:28 am
    Back in May,  my good friend Eric Cowperthwaite caused a stir with a blog post about security breach victims getting demonized for failing to prevent break-ins. Other industry friends passionately disagreed. My thinking on the matter continues to evolve. But as is usually the case, my thinking takes me to the middle. Companies that suffer a breach — Home Depot and Target have been among this year’s biggest poster children — are victims. They don’t set out to put their customers’ data in danger and they probably thought they were practicing all due diligence…

But don’t forget how many rights have been taken from us in the name of fighting terrorism. He’s got that right. There’s been plenty of outrage in recent years over the U.S. government running wild, violating our privacy in the name of security. The Bush Administration was rightly criticized over warrantless wiretapping. More recently, the Obama Administration and such government agencies as the NSA…

It’s too frosty to enjoy many outdoor activities in Manitoba, Canada during the winter, but the city’s embraced its icy reputation and in 2010 local gallery RAW launched the Warming Hut competition for designers to come up with a concept for a temporary structure at the intersection of the Assiniboine and Red Rivers, both of which freeze over every year.

    You might think that wearables are just for people and animals but there’s no reason not to let your car get in on the action, too. As PSFK points out, a new device called Drivebot is designed to be ‘Fitbit for your car’, keeping track of its wellbeing and alerting you to any problems before they (literally) go too far. The tracker plugs into a port your car and works via Bluetooth. The complementary app is available for iOS (7 or later) and Android (4.5 or later). It should work with all OBD-II compatible cars, which means most cars sold in the US since 1996 and the UK since 2001. The…
  • Milk might not protect our bones after all

    30 Oct 2014 | 6:53 am
    We’re told from an early age that we need calcium to keep our bones strong and that milk is one of the best ways to get it. But it turns out, drinking tons of the stuff doesn’t prevent fractures at all. In fact, the opposite could be true. As the BBC reports, a team from Uppsala University in Sweden surveyed 61,400 women and 45,300 men about their diets over the course of a year and then followed up with them for several years afterward. Their data from a 20 year period shows that women who drank more than three glasses of milk a day were more likely to break bones. They also had a 50%…

Sean Young (not that one) from the UCLA Center for Digital Behavior presented his ideas in an article in the journal Trends in Microbiology. He says that people often share health and personal information freely on sites like Twitter, and that hospitals, public health officials and even governments could use this to understand and predict people’s behaviour, allowing them to make interventions where necessary. He says that tweets about unsafe sex and risky drug behaviour can be linked to locations where HIV rates are…

Yeah, who the heck is Xiamoi? Xiaomi is a Chinese electronics company. It makes everything from smartphones, to smart TVs and fitness bands – as well as apps, cloud services and many other things.

Writing in Business Week, Cook says: “I don’t consider myself an activist, but I realize how much I’ve benefited from the sacrifice of others. So if hearing that the CEO of Apple is gay can help someone struggling to come to terms with who he or she is, or bring comfort to anyone who feels alone, or inspire people to insist on their equality, then it’s worth the trade-off with my own privacy.” Unfortunately, Apple has remained quiet on the details: No specs on Cook’s sexuality have been released, nor has the…

The Humble Mozilla Bundle available now offers a selection of excellent PC games, five of which you can get at any price you wish.

Those MRAM chips were produced by TDK's Headway Technologies. TDK will not mass poroduce MRAM chips themselves but rather seek a chip-making partner to produce them. But this may take a while: TDK says it could be up to 10 years before the technology matures (earlier reports said TDK…

    Anupam Varghese
    9 Apr 2014 | 12:53 pm
    "Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who's the most corrupt of them all?"There is this story from the Bible [John 8: 1-11], of a 'condemned' woman, about to be stoned as the 'rules' then required, being brought infront of Jesus. His simple response was to ask anyone from the crowd who had never sinned, to throw the first stone. Each one of the accusers slithered away.I tried to imagine. If this incident had happened in the world we are living in today, not only would she have been stoned by the very people who had 'caught' her, each one of them; her captors would most likely also have been her past…

Tried harder than hell,Cast all the spells,Rang all the bells,But down it fell,Godspeed him well! What could it tell? Kept hitting that damn glass ceiling! No longer a kid,Evolve it did, Diamond claws it hid;The skies now lit, This time it flew, Fast as it could; @###, who removed the damn ceiling?! Moral of the poem is: Always wear a helmet before you fly.

The most rewarding is a cross-functional systems approach that balances quality activities to achieve product performance requirements and meeting internal and external customer requirements (needs & wants). The least desired outcome is a failed quality system that is so dysfunctional that it threatens the organization’s very existence. The final result is a quality system operating between the extremes of the above-described…

    Nowadays, everyone and their mom is building some kind of application. Or, at least, it seems that way. In reality, building an app is a lengthy process, that requires more than just the actual ability to create one. Even if one is personally technically capable of creating an app, there’s still a lot of other components to the process. And, once you do somehow manage to execute a working app, how can you ensure that consumers will actually know about or even use it?

    We often see great hardware paired with questionable official software (firmware). Such is the case with Asus RT-N56U (N600), RT-N65U and RT-N14U wireless routers. Those routers have something "different" inside: a dedicated chip for NAT operations. This means they can support a lot of connections and traffic, with the right firmware, obviously. Asus RT-N56U is my favorite Wi-Fi router now and the price is dropping fast, so it might prove to be a great option for a gigabit router with 5Ghz ca... (read more)

In 2012 TransLink unveiled an idea called the Compass Card, a piece of plastic riders could tap on touchscreen turnstiles to enter and exit SkyTrain platforms (and buses). The technology sounded smooth and efficient; reality has been anything but. TransLink's project has been delayed multiple times.

  • Could Slack Sneak Past Hootsuite and Shopify in Race to Billion-Dollar Valuation?

Slack, the latest creation from Canadian serial entrepreneur Stewart Butterfield, may be raising a round of capital that could value the Vancouver-born company at up to $1 billion, according to TechCrunch. It would definitely be a shocking twist, given that Shopify is 10 years old and Hootsuite is six years old. Slack is five years old, but its current…

    Last week I shared a number of to-do list tips that I’ve learned and Darius asked: “I’d be curious to know how you implemented your priority and tagging system…” Since I use Asana, prioritization is integrated to a degree, but I’ve since learned that using tags brings a new layer that helps me prioritize tasks at the beginning of each day. I also use tags to organize some projects in sort of a sub-category fashion as well. In the video below, I show you how I go about doing this in Asana, but the fundamentals of using tags can also be applied in task management…

    30 Oct 2014 | 9:00 am

It’s no surprise that “The Passion of the Christ” has done very well. It’s the 16th top grossing films of all time, but what about those other movies like “God’s Not Dead” or “Soul Surfer?” The answer may surprise you: [Click for Larger]Selling ‘Chrisitan’ movies as a genre or marketing angle isn’t my favorite thing, nor do I think how much a money grosses is any kind of berometer for how good or bad a movie…

    Video is an amazing medium. It has become a huge part of our culture. From a religious standpoint it is being integrated into our church environments, teaching, and homes. There are a few resources out there that do it well in the Christian world, but as it becomes more prevalent we will all begin to feel the need for more personalized content. Especially in light of the fact that the affordability of doing video well continues to increase. This is my attempt to download the things I have learned over the years from friends in the industry as well as trial and error. This 10-minute film…

    One quarter of a billion domain names have been registered in the last couple decades. Not surprisingly, it is often difficult to get the name you want today. It can be a challenge even for churches since there are hundreds of thousands of churches in the world and many have the same or a similar name. Even if the desired domain name is available, is it memorable? It is important that a church’s domain name be memorable and easy to type so that potential website visitors don’t get lost. There are certain things that make a domain name easy to remember such as keeping it…

    On April 30, 1993, the World Wide Web was born. Today we just call it “the Web”; while other mistakenly call it “the Internet”. The Internet is just the basic tools or platform for delivering the web’s content. (An earlier post stated August 1991 as the birthday, but that version wasn’t publicly accessible. On April 1993, the page was made public.) And on April 20, 1993, the very first web page was published. Here’s a screenshot: To mark the anniversary, CERN has republished that page.

    Fascinating article on Pando Daily about how the VC community has moved from funding high potential people to funding Assholes: Here’s the problem. Every venture capitalist, in every interview they’ve ever done will tell you the same casual lie: That they invest in people first and ideas second. They’ll tell you they invest only in people they’d want to work with. They’ll tell you that they have the luxury to say no to companies that don’t do things in line with the way they like to work, the way they like to treat people.

Anyway, here are Gartners for the next few years (abridged by Broadstuff) 1) By 2018, digital business will require 50 percent less business process workers and 500 percent more key digital business jobs, compared with traditional models. Near-Term Flag: By year-end 2016, 50 percent of digital transformation initiatives will be unmanageable due to lack of portfolio management skills, leading to a measurable negative lost market share. 2)…

(David gave a keynote talk, the slides are over here). It was interesting to juxtapose the core themes of these 2 events (incidentally, it was our Patchwork Elephant Conference held during last year's Social Media Week London that persuaded us to set up Agile Elephant).

  • New Zealand's Trade Minister Admits They Keep TPP Documents Secret To Avoid 'Public Debate'

    Mike Masnick
    31 Oct 2014 | 1:16 am
    A couple years ago, then US Trade Representative Ron Kirk explained why the negotiating text of trade agreements like the TPP needed to be kept secret: because if the public debated it, the agreement probably wouldn't be approved. He used, as an example, a failed trade agreement where the text had been public. Beyond the "small sample size" problem of this explanation, the much more troubling aspect is the obvious question of recognizing that if public debate would kill the agreement, perhaps it's the agreement that's the problem and not the public. Apparently, New Zealand's current Trade…
  • Spain Passes Copyright Law; Demands Payment For Snippets And Linking To Infringing Content

    Mike Masnick
    30 Oct 2014 | 9:12 pm
    Apparently ignoring just how badly this worked out for publishers in Germany, the Spanish Parliament has passed a law to fine aggregators and search engines for using snippets or linking to infringing content. As plenty of folks have described, the bill is clearly just a Google tax. As we had discussed, the proposed bill would be a disaster for digital commons/open access projects. There had been some thought that the proposed bill might be delayed because of a referral to the EU Court of Justice on a related issue, but apparently that didn't happen. Either way, it looks like the bill kept…

    Technology is becoming ever more essential in our daily lives, but as long as the devices we use are still separate things outside of our bodies, we haven't yet fully adapted to technology. However, as technology gets a bit more advanced, it won't seem too strange to start implanting technology in ourselves. If you wear contact lenses, maybe you think you're a pioneer. But there are far more extreme examples, and some folks are really taking it to the next level. Artificial hearts have been under development for decades, but one that adjusts blood flow based on physical activity allows a 75yo…
  • Vermont's Automatic License Plate Readers: 7.9 Million Plates Captured, Five Crimes Solved

    Tim Cushing
    30 Oct 2014 | 3:27 pm
    The sales pitch for automatic license plate readers is how great they are at helping cops solve crimes. From hunting down stolen cars to tracking pedophiles across jurisdictions, ALPRs supposedly make policing a breeze by gathering millions of time/date/location records every single day and making it all available to any law enforcement agency willing to buy the software and pay the licensing fees. The systems come with civil liberties baggage -- privacy issues that aren't completely articulable, at least not in terms of what the courts have held to contain sufficient expectations of privacy.

    Tim Cushing
    30 Oct 2014 | 1:57 pm
    Via Jim Romenesko, here's a rather ugly story about stifling speech. Unfortunately, the entity doing the stifling is also one of the greatest beneficiaries of free speech protections. The Northeast Ohio Media Group last week posted a video of Ohio Gov. John Kasich and challenger Ed FitzGerald meeting with the editorial board, then took it down without explanation and replaced it with an audio recording. This media group (NOMG) owns the Cleveland Plain Dealer, which recently hosted a pre-endorsement Q&A with the three candidates for governor. It wasn't a debate. FitzGerald apparently…

    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…

Of course, the robotic arm is easy to appreciate, thanks to its science fiction roots. It’s also easy to track its progress, as more sophisticated machinery and materials allow wearers to crack eggs or play musical instruments, stories that immediately capture the imagination. So, it’s easy to overlook what’s going in the world of prosthetic legs. It’s a much less glamorous…

    Siren is a new personal safety device that hides in plain sight as a fashionable ring. It’ll pass for a nice accessory on a night out, but the important part is what’s ready and waiting underneath the stone. The ring is actually a high-pitched, 110 dB alarm designed to blast anyone directly in front of it with a deafening wail. If a woman feels threatened outside of her home, she can point the ring at her attacker and quickly give the stone a counterclockwise twist, which will activate the alarm and startle the would-be attacker. It could be a nice thing to have in a pinch, and…

And you know what, it worked, so I don’t see any reason why a much more high-tech, professional approach wouldn’t work just as well. MusicGlove is a glove dotted with sensors that can track discrete hand movements and gestures. The glove is hooked up to an included 10″ tablet (for the home) or 21″ monitor (for clinics), which…

    It has been well established that SEO is just as essential to a blog writer as it to is to a website content writer. If your blog content is not garnering a good readership despite the high quality of content in the post, it could mean that search engines are not finding your blog. On the other hand, sacrificing quality for the sake of SEO is not prudent, either. Ideally, striking the balance between quality and SEO would not only open your blog post to discovery, but can even lead to and sustain a loyal readership. Here are a few tips you can follow to make your blog post SEO-friendly: 1. It…

    Disappointed with not only the design but overall package of the new Apple iPhone 6, I finally gave it a ditch and went for Xiaomi Mi4. The phone is not available in India but importing the device from HongKong costed me roughly $450 (Rs. 28000/-) and I am very satisfied to get such a brilliant phone for almost half the cost of an iPhone6. Xiaomi phones are also known for their popular MiUI Android interface, and I installed the latest MiUI 6 Beta having Google Android 4.4.4 under the hood.

Also, while this post refers to a golden age, NOTHING in it refers to fringe New Testament apocalyptic theology. Introduction During the first part of the 20th century, the french philosopher and sociologist Maurice Halbwachs advanced the idea of “collective memory” — a shared pool of information held in the memories of two or more members of a group.

A well written press release is an effective way to tell a story about your business and generate more leads. It is a great way to top off your overall online marketing strategy.

    Pepcom, a popular CES venue, held their ghoulish-holiday-themed show at Moscone Center in San Francisco this week. The horror of it all was that the event was not well attended. Journalists usually flock to see the big name vendors up close and personal along with some newer companies all lined up booth-to-booth in one room. Not this time. Free booze and tables of diet-destroying hors d’oeurves didn’t even draw a crowd. When the show closed, the leftovers could have gone into doggie bags for everyone who did attend. Open bar on the left didn’t guarantee attendees. Vendors had their…

In recent videos we’ve sen how herds of elephants can smash enemy convoys into smithereens, and how you can rain down a flurry of bullets on baddies from the skies with the new Buzzard gyrocopter. Wild rhinos crash into everything nearby when agitated. Use this to your advantage for tactical gunfights–just make sure you’re not in their path.

    It seems like there are very few situations where “we can all just get along”. When Apple introduced Apple Pay and support for the over 220,000 merchants already taking NFC wireless payments at the register, I thought “sweet!” Everyone loves a faster checkout experience and having one that’s more secure and private can only be a good thing right? Although CVS was never listed as one of the vendors to support Apple Pay, there were people reporting that it was working at their local CVS stores. This is because CVS has/had NFC wireless payments already in place for…
  • Best USB 3.0 Hub for Travel

    Back in 2012 I did a review of what I consider to this day to be The Best USB 3.0 Hub. I still have this hub on my desk to this date with zero problems with it. It just works! While this USB 3.0 hub is great, it’s a bit too large for my travel tastes. Yes they do make this 4 port version but it’s still larger than I wanted for travel. The big decision you have to make when going with a travel USB 3.0 Hub is whether or not you want/need a powered hub or not. Obviously a powered hub is the way to go when you have the ability to plug it in to a power supply and you don’t mind…

    Sadly it seems pretty common place these days to hear of big companies being hacked and having thousands, if not millions of credit card numbers stolen and resold. When Apple announced Apple Pay, I was very interested to say the least. The idea of a payment system that breaks away from all the traditional pitfalls of credit/debit card payments is something that we can all appreciate. The concept behind Apple Pay is simple. If you have an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus then you have the necessary hardware (NFC – near field communications) to allow for wireless transmission of data from your…

    You deserve more revenue. You provide tremendous value to your customers. You improve their lives and grow their companies. Ask them, and they’ll tell you. As such, you deserve more revenue. But many others deserve for your company to grow as well: Your existing customers deserve to do business with a thriving, successful firm.

    My average client grows by 15% to 20% in their first year with me. On the low end, some clients grow by “just” 5% or 10% because you can stumble accidentally into that kind of growth after experiencing the mindset change we work on, and applying just a few of the techniques I teach. On the high end, I have clients who grow by 30% and even more in their first year. (And that’s annual, from now until the end of time, as long as you choose to implement the marketing we create for you.) I’ve analyzed what separates the top growers from the ones who grow the least.

    Alex Goldfayn
    13 Oct 2014 | 9:54 pm
    My definition of marketing is the systematic communication of your value to people who can buy it. When my clients launch their revenue growth programs, they execute two parallel tracks of this kind of communication: One-to-one: This track features your sales people and customer service people talking with customers and prospects, one at a time. They might ask the “did-you-know” question; or communicate a testimonial; or ask for a referral. It doesn’t matter what they do, so long as they take one action per day, which requires 30 seconds or, at most, 15 minutes. (If you…

It’s still on my desk. I cannot bring myself to throw it away. I was done with it the moment I finished reading it, but there it sits, a visual daily reminder of the time the good person took to write me personally. In an era where anyone can tweet or post or email anything to anyone at any time, it is easier than ever to stand out from the crowd. The personal communication is increasingly rare.

Here’s the updated guideline: The National Association of Theatre Owners (NATO) and the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) have a long history of welcoming technological advances and…

    A lot has been said, written and commented on Samsung’s tryst with plastic devices and inhibition to move to a more premium construction material. It was only earlier this year that falling market share coupled with the rise of newcomers in the market such as Xiaomi that Samsung truly realised the threat to its pole position, as far as being the top player in mobile space was concerned. Not surprisingly, this prompted a move to a metallic chassis with the Galaxy Alpha and continued with the Galaxy Note 4. However, if you thought that was just a start and more was to come, you were…

    The title of the post, most definitely would have shocked you. After all, we are used to picking up cases for our smartphones, maybe even tablets at a stretch occasionally, but not a watch ever. The only real accessory, that we may associate with a watch would be maybe a new strap at a stretch and thats about that. However, with Android Wear gradually becoming an acceptable companion for wrist, you are bound to see more and more accessories come on board for it, including new straps, screen protectors and yes, cases.

In higher education, the National Retail Federation states that student spending for electronics (tablets, laptops, etc.) is up 20% from last year. There’s no doubt that classrooms are going digital – yet even with the increase in tablets, Chromebooks and other mobile devices, there remains a strong need to print.

    The last time and perhaps the only time Apple decided to roll out a cost effective solution in the shape of a smartphone (called the iPhone 5c), it did not bode well for the Cupertino tech giant. Currently, the company’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are priced (both on and off-contract) higher compared to what the predecessors were stamped with the first time they got released. To explain why the iPhone maker will most likely never be able to bring forth a cost effective device for the masses, Apple’s marketing executive Greg ‘Joz’ Joswiak has offered an elusive answer. Joswiak was keen…

Transferring 255 terabits through a single strand of glass fiber is equivalent to pushing 32 terabytes per second through that tiny strand of glass fiber. What’s more fascinating is that this speed is enough to transfer an 1 Gigabyte movie in 31.25 microseconds. For transferring 1 Terabyte of…

    30 Oct 2014 | 8:00 am
    The Internet is often idealized as a bastion of information freedom, but not everyone has the same ideal. One of the most pernicious things that keeps the Internet from reaching its ideal open, democratic state is state-sponsored censorship. And although denizens of the world are learning more about censorship and learning new ways to counteract it, the outlook for the future of Internet freedom isn’t looking good. Censorship Is Everywhere When most people think of Internet censorship, they think about political dictatorships and hardline Middle Eastern countries. China, Russia, and…

    It’s one of the world’s most poorly kept secrets that inside even the most domesticated of men there is a furtive longing for a bachelor pad. A place of refuge in the wildest of locations, where he can live (or relive) his youth with just his best mates, the ultimate in gadgets and, perhaps most importantly, decorated in whatever outlandish style he wants. For some men, this dream has become a reality. 1.

    Most people assosiate street art with graffiti and vandalism. But in reality, it can be a lot of things. Technically speaking, street art is visual art created in public locations. It can be a stencil, chalk art, mural, graffiti, wheatpaste poster, street installation, or sculpture. The artists behind these pieces choose the streets to serve as their art gallery. Street artists tend to travel around the world to reach a broader audience. They do this to communicate their designs or message directly to the public at large.

While bikes solve all of the above problems, they do come with their own set of obstacles. Chief amongst them, particularly amongst the inner city crowd, is the matter of storage. Now, bikes certainly take up less space than a car, but unless you have a garage or are content to leave your bike parked in your front hallway, you’re going to…

The ruling concluded that the ACA explicitly restricts subsidies to insurance purchased through exchanges established by the state.

In this concluding article I address the disadvantages of opting for a potentially lower initial cost (fewer agents deployed), and focus on the many advantages to be realized when installing Nomad on all managed systems. The first and likely not obvious issue is that of potential WAN impacts. After all, you are purchasing Nomad for exactly this reason – less impact to the WAN when deploying systems management data.

  • Can you spread the Joomla Love?

    30 Oct 2014 | 5:19 pm
    I love Joomla. I live Joomla. I love to introduce new people to Joomla. I love to show people how to achieve the impossible no matter how improbable they think it is. We need more people who do this and more people who can do this. I get excited showing people what they can achieve with Joomla.

  • All Together as a Whole

    23 Oct 2014 | 9:42 am
    On Monday this week I was honoured to be one of the keynote speakers at JoomlaDay Israel. As I stood on the stage in front of a packed lecture theatre one thing came to my mind. Diversity!!! In the audience were people of three major faiths and those who have no faith. There were people who are very religiously observant and those that are more secular. There were people who were born in perhaps as many as twenty different countries. There were people whose language of birth was perhaps Russian, Hebrew, Arabic, English, French and many more. Yet there we were gathering all together at Tel…
  • Always look on the bright side of life?

    14 Oct 2014 | 8:10 am
    When I was 13 years old Monty Python released the movie "The Life of Brian". What a pain! All through my teenage years fans of the movie, and there were a lot in England, would walk up to me and shout " Brian, he's not the messiah he is a very naughty boy". (If you've not seen the movie you really should). Trust me on this after the tenth time it really isn't very funny. The closing scene of the movie is the song " Always look on the bright side of life!"  It's a noble aim and is analogous to the concept of the glass being half full instead of half empty. Always look for the positives…
  • Clothe the needy not the greedy

    9 Oct 2014 | 7:01 am
    Every year I attend more tech events than I care to count and every year at this time (just before my birthday) I go through my closet, collect all the "souvenir" t-shirts and donate them to a local homeless shelter. Official event t-shirts are a pretty cool reminder of the events that you've attended and some of them are even designed well enough that you are happy (and even proud) to wear them again in the future. But what about all those t-shirts given away by event sponsors that are nothing but adverts. Do you really need them? The photo above was posted on twitter by one person of their…
  • For the sins we have committed...

    5 Oct 2014 | 8:50 am
    Yesterday was the Jewish Holy Day of Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, a day of remembrance, repentance, confession and fasting. It is unique in that it is almost universally observed, even by the most secular of Jews for whom it might be the only day of the year that they attend a service. Central to Yom Kippur is the Al Chet prayer where we are asked to consider the sins we have committed intentionally or unintentionally, what are our sins of commission and our sins of omission and what have we done inadvertently by doing nothing at all. The most important thing is that I am asked to think…

    24 Oct 2014 | 3:38 pm
    No stranger to rolling out high-quality consumer electronics products, Samsung’s Note 4 is a really great little hybrid device, of sorts.  Part of the immediate charm of this little marvel is that it stands tall in two worlds – certainly a smartphone in its own right, but also playing out like a tablet as well.  It is this uniqueness and thereby enhanced functionality that make it worthy of an immediate purchase for a certain type of user.  In other words: phone or tablet?  …uhm, both? Let’s explore some features… The display Naturally, it’s the first thing you’re going to…

    You should already know just how amazing Minecraft is by now.  That it has become an institution within the video gaming community at large, spawning an onslaught of interactive entertainment creativity the likes of which the world has never seen before.  It’s also no secret that the game has been ported over to a number of other platforms apart from its original home on the PC.  Well, thanks to that, we get to experience phenomena like artist Duncan Parcells’ enormous “Titan City” creation. According to the creator, it was inspired directly by New York City (not being any type of…

    There’s something incredibly satisfying about using a tablet computer.  First off, they’re really tactile and visually stimulating.  Secondly, they’re like getting the best of both worlds – more conventional laptop-like size and performance with the usability and feel of a smartphone.  Wondering which of 2014’s tablets are the best and most desirable? No need to fret, we’ve compiled a handy list of the Top 8 for you to review for yourself… iPad Air with Retina Display Just simply saying the phrase “iPad Air with Retina Display” kind of incites a bit of a tingle, doesn’t…

    Looking to upgrade to a new game console? This is the article for you! There’s nothing quite like a really good video game console.  Sure, you can’t really dispute the ultimate flexibility (or possibilities) offered through PC gaming, but when it comes to simple and effective plug-and-play entertainment, where you know “for sure” that you’ll be able to load up that new title and it will definitely work (with little to no glitches, bugs or finagling required).  That’s always pretty much been the draw of the console market – its user-friendliness and overall usability.  Of…

  • Damballa and Bit9 + Carbon Black Collaborate to Deliver Better Security with More Context

    David Monahan
    28 Oct 2014 | 12:54 pm
      In looking at the solutions available for threat protection (and detection), there are quite a few options out there. Some, like Damballa Failsafe, are network-based, vigilantly watching packets across the network and looking for indications of undesirable activities/behaviors and content.  Others are host-based, like Bit9 + Carbon Black, using an agent on the endpoint, to persistently defend the endpoint as a beachhead against undesired, malicious processes trying to execute. Each has its use cases and strong points, but together they provide a significantly broader perspective and…

    This week, Las Vegas hosted some 3500 people at the MGM Grand to mark Splunk .conf14, the annual user gathering for Splunk customers, referred to as “Splunkers”. For those of you not in the tech industry, spelunking, or the act of exploring caves, may come to mind. The theme of the conference was not cave exploration, but data exploration; however, the analogy of cave exploration actually aligns very well. “Splunkers” are diving into their data, delving deep into places that many have never explored before. Each of them finding new and cool ways to use the data that they have been…
  • Network Management: Still a ‘Must-Have’ for Enterprise IT

    Jim Frey
    7 Oct 2014 | 9:23 am
    It’s sometimes difficult to differentiate between hype and reality when it comes to topics such as cloud, ITaaS, SDN, DevOps, hybrid this and hybrid that. But there are a few certainties in the IT universe and one of them is that IT doesn’t function if all of the pieces can’t talk to one another, and that means the network needs to be rock solid. Some of that is under the control of enterprise IT teams as internal network infrastructure, but some of it isn’t, such as WAN or Internet. Because connectivity is so essential, no one questions the need for making sure the network is healthy…
  • Citrix Stakes Software-Defined Ground; Network Remains Critical to Success

    Jim Frey
    26 Sep 2014 | 8:41 am
    Last week, I attended a Citrix analyst relations summit program to learn about the company’s direction and strategy.  While the main-tent program was longer on vision than it was on execution details, there were some aspects of the proceedings that I found compelling. First off, there weren’t a lot of net new things being introduced, other than some roadmaps shared under NDA and a truly cool multi-station mobile work experience demo. But that’s ok.  Too often, tech companies feel compelled to forever be pushing “something new,” when in reality IT pros need vendors to stick to…

    There was a time at the height of my home video and audio craze that the number of devices I needed to watch a movie could no longer be counted on one hand. Amplifier, preamplifier, tuner, CD player, DVD player, TV, cable box . . .you get the idea. As I organized my vast array of remote controls on the coffee table, I was blissfully unaware of any issues. That was the case until my wife just wanted to watch a movie one night while I was gone, and she had a conniption fit trying to figure everything out. There was no way she was going to invest the time to learn what to power up, and what…

  • Sync or update your Band with the Microsoft Band Sync app for Windows or Mac

    Mark Guim
    30 Oct 2014 | 7:38 pm
    The Microsoft Band Sync app for Windows or Mac lets you sync your Band to the cloud while it is connected via USB cable. Your phone can already sync your Microsoft Band, but Microsoft says this method syncs faster than your phone while your device is charging over USB. Another reason why you would want this app on your Mac or PC is that it lets you get updates and restore the software on your Microsoft Band.
  • Microsoft Band is out of stock in all sizes on the Microsoft Store site

    Andrew Martonik
    30 Oct 2014 | 6:57 pm
    The Microsoft Band made quite a splash with its brisk unveiling, and since then stock of all three sizes on the Microsoft Store has completely dried up. At $199 it isn't exactly in "impulse buy" range for many people, and you have to think Microsoft had quite a few of them in anticipation of the launch, so a complete sell out is interesting to see.

  • Come see our second Halo: the Master Chief Collection preview on Twitch right now!

    30 Oct 2014 | 5:48 pm
    Last night we hosted one of our most exciting Twitch streams yet. Hundreds of viewers tuned in to get an early look at Halo: the Master Chief Collection for Xbox One. Yours truly played through one mission each from Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary and Halo 2: Anniversary. I absolutely didn't remember where to go in either mission, and sometimes I struggled against the Covenant hordes (especially the Hunters in Halo: CE). But we all had a great time, met some new readers and viewers, and maybe even learned a little something about life. See yesterday's post for archive videos of both games.

    It sounds obvious to spend your social budget to please valuable fans, doesn’t it? So why aren’t we doing so? It looks like we are shooting in the blind, meanwhile complaining that the ROI of social media is poor. Fortunately, it’s possible to learn who your valuable fans are and what they appreciate. Once you are aware of that, the magic begins. During infoShare 2014 (22-23 May) in Gdansk we will discuss this topic by sharing our concerns and experiences with today’s social media practices.

    Probably you have been investing a lot of time and money this year to increase your social follower base. Did it pay off? Unfortunately, when talking to marketing managers I often hear they don’t know whether their investment really paid off. Basically this means it probably didn’t or they just don’t have any idea. Fact is that many marketing managers don’t know how to value their social media investment. They are happy that they managed to increase their follower base, but don’t know if this had any impact on their brand awareness, engagement, sales results, etc. The…

    This evening I had the pleasure to meet with the Agile community in Tri-City, Agile3M. After several discussions around working in an Agile way they were wondering how to solve the contracting with an external client. Honestly, this is a rather challenging topic. Based on mutual trust it’s possible to reach an agreement, but in case trust is lacking, it’s going to be a long, hard road. It’s a matter of give and take Working in an Agile way has in my opinion many advantages and increasingly research is showing this as well. But this doesn’t mean it’s easy. I would…

    In the realm of websites, there are good websites and there are bad websites. Many of the great websites will stand out from the crowd because they work well, they are pleasing to the eye and they are full of the products, services and information you are looking for. Bad websites can also be memorable, but for the opposite reasons. Don’t let your website be memorable for something bad.

    Making the transition from working for someone else, to running your own business can be tough, but few would argue that the most difficult aspect of entrepreneurialism is being your own boss. While this is one of the main aspects of self-employment that appeals, as we get to make decisions for ourselves instead of being told what to do, it’s also the part of business ownership that requires the strongest determination to succeed. When you think about it, it’s a bit like being a teenager and heading off to university or college for the first time. Instead of being bound..

    My first experience with ON had me do a double-take, the whole feel already seemed familiar. The roll of selfies and the idea of meeting new people had me thinking I was on Tinder, but upon closer inspection I was on the ON homepage. ON is like a smorgasbord of the best features from other social media platforms and combines it into one experience that could change the way we meet new people. ON as a standalone app does what Tinder does; discover and meet new people through photos. What ON does differently is take the best parts of Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and Tinder and roll…

    The smart home may be angling for the mainstream, but right now it’s stuck swimming in a niche. Turning lights on automatically and setting thermostats from a smartphone is the stuff geeks revel in now, but for the smart home to reach flooding point, it must transform, not augment, the domestic realm — and it needs to start in the kitchen. The promise of the smart home has everyone excited about the concept, but as thrilling as it is that my lights come on when I turn into my driveway, I’d be far more excited if I knew my oven was not only pre-heated to the right temperature for…

  • Dear Diary, I’m leaving you for my Mobile App!

    Maureen Evans

    The diary dilemma… For years, diary studies have been conducted to get a closer look into the consumer experience as well as usage of various products and services, both while in-home and on-the-go. Truth be told, the level of information obtained from diaries is invaluable as it allows for an intimate glimpse into not only why respondents rate products and services the way they do, but also how those ratings might influence purchase decisions in the future. But, admittedly, capturing diary insights can be a bit cumbersome. Respondents are typically asked to record their behaviors and…
  • The Case for Incremental Differentiation

    Brad Bane
    15 Oct 2014 | 11:37 am
    Branding is a lot like middle school. You want to stand out, you want to be your own person – but you only want the “right” people to notice. So you change your hair style…slightly. You maybe try a new brand of clothing, one that looks the same as the old brand. You vow to raise your hand more in class, but not enough to become the teacher’s pet. This came to mind when we were discussing the “Share a Coke” campaign (the one where they put people’s names and cutesy words like “Legend” and “BFF” and all kinds of things that grownups never say to one another on the cans…

    I recently heard a story on Ted Radio about Alice Stewart . Alice was a physician in England in the 1950’s and the youngest fellow at the time to be elected to the college of physicians. Alice was an epidemiologist specializing in social medicine and the effects of radiation on health. She wanted to solve big problems and the one she choose to try to solve early in her career was the alarming rate of childhood cancers. She liked to study patterns and did research by polling mothers of children who had developed cancer. It was a radical notion at the time to think that mothers would be…
  • On Concept Writing: How Consumers Consume Concepts

    Paul Crowe
    1 Oct 2014 | 11:45 am
    We spend a lot of time honing our concepts, making sure that the language is just right before going into a quantitative test. But how many of us have thought about how respondents (i.e., consumers) actually consume concepts? In this article, we’ll take a look at some R&D conducted by Ipsos InnoQuest that leveraged eye tracking to understand how consumers read concepts – and discuss the implications for when you’re writing concepts. Follow Their Eyes Without further ado, here are the results. What is shown is a “view order” analysis which indicates the most typical path which…

    You know how it always happens that as soon as you learn a new word, you hear it everywhere? I mean everywhere until the point where you think to yourself, “how have I gone so long without knowing what this meant?” Lately, that’s how I’ve been feeling with a topic instead of a word. That topic is geolocation, and once I started to look into it, I’ve realized it’s EVERYWHERE – and with good reason! Today, most of us carry around personal tracking devices. No, I’m not talking about Minority Report: I’m talking about our smart phones. And while it may be scary to think about,…

  • LG Display boasts a new 5.3 1080p panel with 0.7mm bezel

    30 Oct 2014 | 7:40 pm
    LG Display has made a 5.3 inch LCD panel with a very small bezel of just 0.7mm. The display of 1080p resolution has an eye popping pixel density of 415ppi. To achieve this, LG Display used “Neo Edge” module processing technology as well as the first “Advanced In-Cell Touch (AIT)” technology. As GSM Arena explains: “Neo Edge” uses a special adhesive instead of the traditional double-sided tape to attach and seal the backlight unit to the display panel’s circuit board. This achieves minimal bezel width and blocks light leakage. Another bonus is that it makes the display…

  • How to change IE Spelling language in Windows 8

    31 Aug 2014 | 12:35 pm

One of the first things I noticed was that even I was running Internet Explorer 11 on both operating systems, spelling control was not working the same way in IE 11 on Windows 8/Windows 8.1. In Windows 7 I was used to right click on a misspelled word and chance the language in case I was writing in another language in my default. In Windows 8 that is not the possible. My default language is Danish, but I often write in English as well. It toke me quite some time to figure out how I could get it to work in Windows 8, because I think it is a…

  • ‘Golden Triangle’ Disappears As Search-User Behavior Evolves

    A cornerstone of SEO has always been the “golden triangle,” the tiny, vaunted piece of real estate on the search engine results page (SERP) where users are most likely to notice your site. But new research shows that the golden triangle has lost its hold—and that users aren’t scanning search results the way they used to. The golden triangle was discovered as far back as 2005. That was when SEO researchers first used “eye-tracking” studies to create a heat map of the parts of the screen that a user actually looks at. Those studies showed that users start in the top left and read…

    How does your law firm handle SEO? For many firms, getting ranked on Google has been an uphill battle, one made worse by SEO companies that overpromise and under-deliver.

    It’s tough being a CEO. You have to constantly meet your sales goals while coming up with new ideas. You have to motivate your employees and keep expanding the business, too. Things only get harder if you’re in tech, where everything changes so quickly. And, on top of that, if you’re at a public company where shareholders scrutinize your every move? Forget about it. That’s why staying popular among employees often gets put on the back burner of many tech CEOs. Yet, the truly talented CEOs manage to keep both their employees and shareholders happy.

Closer inspection revealed that it was an anti-virus warning that signaled the computer had been infected by a Virus (almost 2 days ago!!). As a techie, I quickly deduced 3 things from the screen. One, the computer was running Windows, and probably an outdated version of Windows. Two, the computer had been infected with Conficker–Conficker was a pretty infamous threat, back in 2008!!

    Recently KiniBiz did a piece on Malaysian broadband speeds, and once again the hoopla about how Malaysian broadband speeds are slow arose. Kinibiz quoted an article from Asean DNA which stated that the average broadband speed in Malaysia was just 5.5 Mbps, while Thailand, Vietnam and Singapore had speeds that were double that (or more!)

There was a report couple months back that said Cambodia had faster speeds than Malaysia, and I wrote a post addressing that. This time I…

That sounds anathema, because we have a romanticized definition of the law, we define the Law as a broad general agreement a society undertakes, and the law keeps society from tearing itself apart. In other words, the law is so sacred because without it–we descend into anarchy, so ignoring the law is akin to promoting anarchy.

    These days, more and more people are choosing to embrace minimalism. In certain situations this can wreak frustrating havoc on your everyday life. With some minimal planning it doesn’t have to come to that. Let’s look at how to overcome four of these minimalist hurdles. What Is Minimalism? Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus over at describe minimalism as “a tool used to rid yourself of life’s excess in favor of focusing on what’s important so you can find happiness, fulfilment, and freedom”.

    30 Oct 2014 | 8:00 am
    The Internet is often idealized as a bastion of information freedom, but not everyone has the same ideal. One of the most pernicious things that keeps the Internet from reaching its ideal open, democratic state is state-sponsored censorship. And although denizens of the world are learning more about censorship and learning new ways to counteract it, the outlook for the future of Internet freedom isn’t looking good. Censorship Is Everywhere When most people think of Internet censorship, they think about political dictatorships and hardline Middle Eastern countries. China, Russia, and…

    When people search for cell phone hacks or hacking, they normally have one of two things in mind: how can I hack my cell phone to do something or install something that’s currently restricted or how I can hack a cell phone and steal its data like images, text messages, location data, etc. In this article, I’ll try to cover both topics in some detail. Obviously, hacking is a non-trivial task, so you’ll need to spend quite a bit of time browsing through forums, etc. before you attain your goal.

    Creating a good backup of your computer system involves not only backing up all of your data, but also backing up all Windows and system files when they are in a working and stable state. When a hard drive crashes or the Windows operating system becomes corrupt, it would be preferable to not only be able to load back your data quickly, but also to load back the entire OS with all of your user settings, bookmarks, installed drivers, installed applications, and more. A good way to have both things taken care of at once is to create an image of your hard drive. By creating an image, your entire…

Firefox is by far the most customizable browser out there with thousands of extensions and addons that you can download to extend the capabilities of the browser.

Unfortunately, if you have an older DVD player, you won’t be able to play MP4 videos directly from a USB or other external media.The reason for this is that the standard AAC audio codec is incompatible with DVD players due to license restrictions.

We always want to be different, or better than the other guy. YES! I know we are different but in what sense? Ethnicity, race, religion, gender? Oh please! those are just what we perceive in our minds; “It all in your head”. Here is how stereotype works: When an event occurs more that once, we try to find some sense of correlation between these events, and if we are successful, we automatically assume with no…

  • Microsoft enables animated GIF search on Bing

    Brian Fagioli
    30 Oct 2014 | 6:59 pm
    While some people find animated GIFs to be tacky and silly, I find them fun. Sure, many people use the images to flood social media with memes, but they also serve as a great way to show a short animation using a small file size. I often use them in things like PowerPoint presentations, as they jazz it up a bit and keep things exciting. Searching for the perfect animated GIF can be problematic, as most images are not named as such, and unless the search engine gives an option, they may be mixed in with non-animated images too. Today, Bing gets even better, with the all-new option to filter…

    Chris Mahns
    16 Oct 2014 | 5:30 am
    I came across this error just the other day. cURL throws the following error when I was trying to connect to an https host: Unknown SSL protocol error in connection to <hostname>:-9846 Connecting to the same host using openssl's s_client, the following error was thrown: error:1408F119:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_RECORD:decryption failed or bad record mac Turns out, the server my client was trying to connect to was so old, it didn't support TLS!

    It's only been a few days since the 0.5 release but I've been busy updating CryptoNark with some bug fixes and also added in support for Windows. One caveat: I've only tested this on WIndows 8.1 under a Strawberry Perl 5.18.2 installation. Please let me know if there are any issues on older/newer versions of Strawberry Perl. One additional item to note in this version. SSLv2 connections to some sites were causing perl to crash when running on Windows. I've modified the subroutine that is making SSLv2 calls to make it more stable but on those sites that it was crashing on, cnark now falsely…

  • How to Set up Advanced Sales Tax in Canada

    Picking up from last week, this we want to talk about setting province-specific tax rates for all the Canadian e-junkie users. We didn't leave our neighbors to the north out! Now the one problem you may find is that there is not a way to separate the GST and PST in the cart or receipt. But, since HST is used in many places this will not be a problem for everyone. Start by going to Seller Admin>Edit E-junkie Cart Sales Tax & VAT Settings.On the following page, in the lower right, enter in the abbreviation for each province and territory, followed by a comma and the tax rate.

  • How to Setup Advanced Sales Tax

    22 Oct 2014 | 12:44 pm
    Lets face it, no matter how much we would like to see the opposite, taxes just keep getting more complex. Luckily, E-Junkie makes it possible to set up more then just a single sales tax rate. If you are selling in a single state, lets say Arizona (where we are located), you will need to charge sales tax to buyers through out the state.But different cities having their own tax rate (along with the state rate and maybe even a county rate as well), that can create a number of different rates depending on where your buyer is located. In this tutorial, we'll guide you through each step.

Not only does she go without defense from her peers in the industry, it’s actually one of her peers calling her stupid. Which is fine, she’s very tough. But if you see her today, let her know how much you respect her. She won’t show it, but…

    30 Oct 2014 | 6:15 pm
    Do you imagine Steve Wozniak smoked a lot of pot and made a lot of penis jokes in his youth? If so then you'll think the casting choice for Woz's role in Aaron Sorkin's new Steve Jobs biopic is absolutely perfect. According to Variety, none other than Seth Rogen has been tapped to play Wozniak in the upcoming film, which we think is an inspired choice for the brilliant and often very amusing Apple cofounder. Christian Bale, who is best known for playing Batman in Gary Nolan's highly acclaimed trilogy, will play opposite Rogen as Steve Jobs.  Continue reading...

    30 Oct 2014 | 4:00 pm
    The Apple Pay vs. MCX’s CurrentC war has been one of the highlights of the week, with MCX having to defend its position against Apple Pay and in favor of its own smartphones payments solution that will launch next year and will be available via its CurrentC app. MCX members, including Walmart, Best Buy, Target, CVS, Gap and many others must exclusively support CurrentC in stores, reports revealed, suggesting that a fine is involved if this contract requirement is broken.
