Could very well be, but if you think about the nature of friendship, you will quickly realize that a friend is someone you learn from, someone you share experiences with, and someone you respect and, well, like. Such is Tomer. I have been following Tomer for years on the social web and consistently…
  • An Interview with Martin Bryant, Editor in Chief of The Next Web about Journalism, Print, and Wearables

    12 Oct 2014 | 11:20 pm
    By: Hillel Fuld (@Hilzfuld) There are many tech blogs out there. Way too many. For us tech addicts, that means too much daily reading. But then there are the ones that stand out. The tech blogs that consistently put out top-notch work and do it without the need for stupid blogger politics, or an ego the size of south america. Of course that last part, the lack an ego that makes it difficult to work with them, really limits the bunch to a very few selected blogs. The Next Web is at the top of that list. The Next Web has been at the top of my daily reading list for what seems like forever. I…

    There's nothing like a nice soak after a long day. An old video started resurfacing this week of a young man carelessly attaching Mentos to his body, and slipping into a tub filled with Coke Zero. As most amateur scientists know, mixing cola and Mentos is a recipe for sticky disaster.

    No one can trick out their drone quite like YouTuber Oliver C. Known for his remote-controlled Millennium Falcon, the newest addition to his drone fleet is a Star Wars-themed TIE Interceptor. Oliver published a photo timeline of his model being built, which features a pack of LEDs for thrusters and flashing orange lights for blasters.

  • Boko Haram execution video is latest nod to gruesome ISIS tactics

    Megan Specia
    2 Mar 2015 | 11:35 am
    A video shared by social media accounts linked to Boko Haram on Monday depict the execution of two men by members of the extremist Islamist group, mirroring the gruesome tactic that has become synonymous with ISIS. This is the latest move by Boko Haram in an attempt to more closely align itself with ISIS, which controls swathes of land in Iraq and Syria. Boko Haram, which was founded in 2002, has long rejected Western secular society and attempted to impose Shariah law — an Islamic legal system based on the Koran and fatwas — and increase its territory under a self-proclaimed…
  • Why millennials are increasingly cutting the cord

    Lindsay Rothfeld
    2 Mar 2015 | 11:33 am
    A family of six sits crouched over a tiny 13-inch screen. Ed Sullivan — charming and poised — speaks directly to what felt to be all of America. Television programming was conceived to bring families together. And at the time, that was exactly what we needed. It was revolutionary for millions of households across the country to feel like a single, cohesive unit, reacting in unison. From 1950 to 1960, the number of American households with a television set climbed from 9% to 90%. Today, however, the trend is reversing.

  • Tinder launches premium service that costs twice as much for people over 30

    2 Mar 2015 | 11:30 am
    You might want to check your bank account before swiping right on Tinder. The dating app is officially launching its suite of premium features, the cost of which vary based on how old you are. In the U.S, users under 30 will pay a $9.99 per month subscription while those 30 and older will pay $19.99 for the same service, the company announced Monday. One of the new paid features is "unlimited liking capabilities," which means free users will now have a finite number of "likes" available to them, though it's not yet clear what the cutoff will be.

  • Rogers Exec Pouts About VPNs, Publicly Dreams Of Canadian Ban

    Karl Bode
    2 Mar 2015 | 10:28 am
    Over the years, many folks in the broadcast and entertainment industries have made it increasingly clear they'd love to see tools like VPNs or proxy services made illegal. Sure, both are perfectly legal and have a myriad of valid purposes, but because they can allow users to dodge anti-piracy snooping efforts (like the not-really effective U.S. six strikes program) or geo-blocks (like say watching Netflix in unsupported countries) -- apparently they should be outlawed entirely. You know, like in Iran -- and now Russia. Canadian law professor Michael Geist notes that several Rogers, Bell and…
  • 'Officer Awareness' Memo: Police Accountability Recording App Could Lead To Dangerous 'Flash Mobs'

    Tim Cushing
    2 Mar 2015 | 9:24 am
    Your law enforcement panic of the day: an app that automatically uploads recorded footage and forwards it to the ACLU. New Jersey's ACLU branch put together "Police Tape" back in 2012, an app which allowed anyone to record cops with a press of a button. The app then hid itself while the recording continued. If the recording was interrupted, the app would automatically send the recording to the ACLU. The app also advised those confronted by cops of their rights in various situations. The app is apparently no longer available, but ACLU-NJ reported 30,000 downloads within the first few months of…
  • AT&T's $30 'Don't Be Snooped On' Fee Is Even Worse Than Everybody Thought

    Karl Bode
    2 Mar 2015 | 8:03 am
    Last week we noted that while AT&T has been trying to match Google Fiber pricing in small portions of several markets, it has been busily doing it in a very AT&T fashion. While the company is offering a $70, 1 Gbps service in some locations, the fine print indicates that users can only get that price point if they agree to AT&T's Internet Preferences snoopvertising program. That program uses deep packet inspection to track your online behavior down to the second -- and if you want to opt out, that $70 1 Gbps broadband connection quickly becomes significantly more expensive.
  • Late Friday, White House Announces That FISA Court Has Rubberstamped NSA Phone Record Collection, While Insisting It Wants Reform

    Mike Masnick
    2 Mar 2015 | 5:54 am
    As per its usual method of releasing news it would rather not talk about, on Friday evening the White House released the news that it had, once again, gotten a rubberstamp approval from the FISA Court for the NSA to collect in bulk basically all your phone records. As you probably know, this is just the latest in a long series of reapprovals by the FISA Court, which needs to reauthorize the program for limited periods of time each time the previous rubber stamp "expires." What hasn't made much sense in all of this is that President Obama announced a year ago that he wanted to end the bulk…
  • Surveillance Software Company Gamma Found To Have Violated Human Rights; Receives Unprecedented Slap On The Wrist

    As Techdirt has reported on the increasingly active world of commercial spyware, one name in particular has cropped up several times: Gamma, with its FinFisher suite of spyware products. In October last year, we reported that Privacy International had filed a criminal complaint against the company with the National Cyber Crime Unit of the UK's National Crime Agency. There's no update on that move, but it seems that a parallel action has had more success (pdf): British-German surveillance company Gamma has been condemned by a human rights watchdog for its failure to adhere to human rights and…

  • Bandit Ultra Trail Race 2015 – Volunteering and Photos O’ Plenty

    24 Feb 2015 | 8:24 am
    Last year I signed up for the Bandit Ultra Trail Race 30k and the days leading up to the race I got sicker and sicker. The day before the race I thought I could pull it off even though I had massive body aches and felt like death warmed over. I picked up my bib and shirt but by the time I got home I was a wreck and had to DNS the race. This year I went back to the Bandit a week after running the Sean O’ Brien Marathon but went to volunteer. If you were in the race, I was one of the guys along with JK who helped steer 50k, 30k and 15k runners around the first loop then onto the first…

    9 Feb 2015 | 8:20 am
    I got a little crazy in December and decided to sign up for my first ultra race. After some training I figured it made more sense to do a trail marathon first so with that I changed my registration from the Sean O’Brien 50K to the Marathon race on February 7, 2015. If you’re not familiar with the Sean O’Brien races, this is the second year for the races, held at Malibu Creek State Park in Agoura Hills. Last year runners could sign up for the Marathon, 50k or the 50 miler. The 50 miler turned into a playground for elite runners seeking to qualify for a coveted Western States…
  • Santa To The Sea Half Marathon and 2014 Recap

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

    After tackling the XTERRA Point Mugu 18K Trail Race in October, I decided to do the Santa to the Sea Half Marathon in December next. But that left me with two months without races and I got impatient. I was looking through my timeline on the Strava site when I saw that tri-athlete Anthony Grey was in his last weeks of training for the Surfer’s Point Full Marathon. After that I signed up for the half marathon or the race to be held on Nov. 16, 2014. One of the features of the race is that when you cross the finish line you get a nice beer and some real tacos. Who can say no to tacos?

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

    The jig is up, Sony, and we know full well what’s up your sleeve for next week’s Mobile World Congress. The Xperia M4 Aqua is an open book, and the Xperia Z4 Tablet is no big puzzle either. Alas, the Z4 smartphone will most likely stay on the sidelines a couple more months, hopefully to score enough upgrades to clearly set itself apart from the Z3.Continue reading March 2 is when Sony will out the ‘slimmer, lighter, brighter’ Xperia Z4 Tablet Related posts: Sony Xperia Tablet Z Landing in Japan on March 22 in LTE Flavor Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet priced at $500 and up stateside,…

  • Mobile World Congress 2015, or Why Your Smartphone Is Crap

    Don't you just love big industry events like Mobile World Congress? I mean, you've had whole weeks to enjoy the new phone you got last quarter, and now you'll hear about a bunch of incredibly wonderful stuff that will make that new phone look like your grandmother's favorite car -- you know, the one she fell in love with in the 1960s. Unfortunately, I'm not going to make things better. This week, I'm going to walk you through some of the more interesting things likely to be on display at the event.

    Even for someone endlessly in awe of our ability to traverse continents in just a few hours, traveling is increasingly a chore. Anything I can add to trips to make them even a touch more enjoyable is nothing to sniff at. Coolpeds' briefcase e-scooter -- a suitcase with a built-in, motorized scooter -- may be just what I need to freshen up journeys. It's just as well there's a built-in transport system on this, given the suitcase alone weighs a whopping 17.4 pounds. It might be carry-on size, but it's far beyond typical carry-on luggage weight.
  • The Apple Watch Mystery Won't Be Solved March 9

    Chris Maxcer
    27 Feb 2015 | 11:30 am
    The fog shrouding the Apple Watch won't be lifted on March 9 when Apple is widely expected to tell us more about its forthcoming release. Apple's invite to its media event is characteristically coy, with its vague "Spring Forward," tease, which likely refers to the shift in daylight savings time -- and time itself. The Apple Watch event likely will fill in some knowledge gaps around functionality, as well as pricing, but the mystery is whether most of us new buyers suddenly will turn into watch wearers for longer than a few months.

    Researchers at Google's DeepMind subsidiary in England have developed an artificial agent they call a "deep Q-network" that learned to play 49 classic Atari 2600 arcade games by just diving in. The DQN algorithm performed at more than 75 percent of the level of a professional player in more than half the games, and came up with far-sighted strategies that let it achieve the maximum attainable scores in certain games, such as Breakout. IT outperformed previous machine learning methods in 43 of the games.
  • Malicious Emailers Find Healthcare Firms Juicy Prey

    John P. Mello Jr.
    26 Feb 2015 | 9:11 am
    Healthcare providers have garnered growing interest from hackers in recent months. More evidence of that trend appeared last week in a report on email trust. An email that appeared to come from a healthcare company was four times more likely to be fraudulent than an email purportedly from a social media company like Facebook, one of the largest creators of email on the Internet, Agari found. The report gives industries a TrustScore -- that is, a number that reflects the trustworthiness of email from companies within that industry group.

    1 Mar 2015 | 11:14 am
    The theme for the 2015 Mobile World Congress event, which runs March 2 - 5 in Barcelona, is "The Edge of Innovation." Expected to draw more than 85,000 mobile industry professionals, the annual conference and exhibition is adding several new features and events this year. Among the new additions are an expanded program bringing together startup entrepreneurs and investors, a "Connected Women Summit" and an activity competition using wearable health-tracking technology. A forum focused on "mobile, music, innovation, and experience" -- dubbed MMIX for short -- will also explore how new mobile…
  • Will Apple Watch Sell Millions or Fall Flat?

    28 Feb 2015 | 1:28 pm
    Apple just sent out invitations for a March 9 event that many predict will see the technology giant debut the Apple Watch, or at least offer some strategic news. With a "Spring Forward" tagline, it's not hard to guess that the Apple Watch is at the center of the event. Apple Watch will let you communicate from your wrist by sending and receiving messages and answering calls to your iPhone. With its iOS-based user interface customized for a smaller device, and the Digital Crown for scrolling, zooming and navigating without interfering with the display, Apple is expected to offer a unique smart…
  • Women Are Leaving the Tech Industry in Droves

    28 Feb 2015 | 9:04 am
    Ana Redmond launched into a technology career for an exciting challenge and a chance to change the world. She was well-equipped to succeed too: An ambitious math and science wiz, she could code faster, with fewer errors, than anyone she knew. In 2011, after 15 years, she left before achieving a management position. Garann Means became a programmer for similar reasons. After 13 years, she quit too, citing a hostile and unwelcoming environment for women. Neither expects to ever go back. "There are a lot of things that piled up over the years," Means said. "I didn't know how to move forward.

    28 Feb 2015 | 8:57 am
    In the afterglow of the Federal Communications Commission's decision favoring Net Neutrality, supporters are having to face some tough issues that lie ahead. The order prohibits broadband providers from blocking, slowing or selling faster delivery of content flowing through their networks. By approving the regulations, the FCC granted the longstanding wishes of public-interest advocates, technology firms and Democrats to strengthen government oversight of the Internet and prevent abuses by broadband service providers. Even so, the debate over the issue will continue to rage. The fact that the…
  • Facebook Gender Options Are Now Unlimited

    28 Feb 2015 | 8:29 am
    Facebook users who don't fit any of the 58 gender identity options offered by the social media giant are now being given a rather big 59th option: fill in the blank. "Now, if you do not identify with the pre-populated list of gender identities, you are able to add your own," said a Facebook announcement published online Thursday morning and shared in advance with The Associated Press. Facebook software engineer Ari Chivukula, who identifies as transgender and was part of the team that made the free-form option, thinks the change will lead to more widespread acceptance of people who don't…

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

I noted that it’s in our power to educate the masses and stop this thing before it becomes law. To that end, I have something to share with you. Derek Watson — better known in the security community as Blak Dayz (blakdayz) — posted the following call to action: Hackers. It’s time to UNITE.

    2 Mar 2015 | 9:48 am
    ImmerVision took to Mobile World Congress yesterday, to launch 360° panomorph front-facing cameras for smartphones and tablets, that the company claims can radically change how we capture, experience, and share our photos and videos, turning them into fully immersive experiences. ImmerVision has said that this new technology turns selfies into “groupies” (still just giant selfies) and shake-free video calls on-the-go are now possible without the need for add-ons, image stitching, or panning the camera since everything in sight is captured in full 360. ImmerVision’s 360° optical…

    Today at Mobile World Congress, Silent Circle has announced the launch of the world’s first privacy platform for mobile users aimed at the business market. It’s a system of devices, services, and software based on ZRTP – a cryptographic mobile protocol, built for privacy. (The fact that using it might make you feel a little like Veronica Mars? Just an added bonus.) At last year’s MWC, Silent Circle launched the Blackphone, which was later named one of Time Magazine’s best 25 inventions of 2014. This year, they’re announcing the Blackphone 2, an even more stealthy smartphone…

Today, storage solution company SanDisk has announced two new mobile flash drives, both designed to make it quicker and easier to transfer content from phones and tablets to your computer. First up is the company’s Dual USB Drive with Type C connector (pictured), ideal for Type C-ready connected devices. Within the next year, up to 12% of handsets could feature Type C connectors. This new drive has a Type C connector on one end and USB 3.0 on the other. It also works with SanDisk’s Memory Zone app,…

    James O'Malley

    A new type of smart lightswitch has launched on Indiegogo, which does away with the difficulty of messing with your home’s wiring. The way Switchmate works is by using magnets – simply snap it on to your lightswitch and it’ll stick with magnets. The existing switch is then switched off and on using a mechanical switch on the back of the device. It can be controlled using either bluetooth or a switch on the wall – and a hub will also be available for controlling switches when you’re away from home. At the moment there is a bit of a way to go, so it will be…
  • Has Samsung just beaten Apple at mobile payments?

    One of the most interesting new announcements to come out of Samsung’s Mobile World Congress presentation yesterday was the announcement of “Samsung Pay” – a service that will let you pay for stuff with your phone, to compete primarily with Apple Pay. Apple Pay launched at the end of last year in the US, and is set to launch later this year in the UK – but whilst clearly being a very slick technology, has had limited uptake. The reason is that it uses NFC payments, which require shops (or “merchants”, in credit card speak) to have NFC reading payment…

    Sony has today announced the Xperia Z4 tablet, but rather curiously, hasn’t said anything about the expected Z4 phone. The tablet itself is, like everything else at MWC, pretty unremarkable – its an Android rectangle, and that’s all you really need to know. Though that said, the company is keen to point out the audio on the device – which has stereo front-facing speakers: “Sony’s leading audio technologies ensure you never miss a beat. High-Res Audio reproduces high frequency sound in amazing detail for a studio quality experience. DSEE HXTM processing upscales…

    Yesterday at the start of Mobile World Congress, HTC dropped one of the few genuine surprises so far: the Chinese phonemaker is partnering with Valve to build a virtual reality headset. The move is one that will excite gamers. Not because of HTC – but because Valve, which made its name with Steam and Half Life, could conceivably do some very exciting things. In fact, the whole VR space is currently hugely exciting: The Oculus Rift is still making waves, Microsoft’s HoloLens has captured imaginations with its augmented reality vision, and just on Thursday I tried out Roto, one of…

    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…

  • Is a Custom Built Church Website for You?

    Casey Dierking
    2 Mar 2015 | 7:00 am
    There are a lot of challenges and risks you can encounter when setting out to build a church website. What should your domain name be? Where should you host it? CMS or static site? It can be a little bit overwhelming. When I set out to build my church’s website, I encountered these same things. The biggest decision we made, however, was deciding whether or not to get a template and built it on an existing platform or to custom build our own solution. We put a lot of thought and strategic planning into building our website and we found ourselves falling under the mantra…

  • He Lived Long; We Prosper: Requiem for Spock

    Phil Schneider
    28 Feb 2015 | 8:36 am
    Leonard Nimoy, the venerable Mr. Spock from the original Star Trek series, passed away yesterday morning. As someone on the very tail end of Gen X, I didn’t grow up with the first crew of the Enterprise. However, my foray into Doctor Who has required me, at times, to go and watch some of the old episodes, which made me want to look back at classic sci-fi programs in my own country, specifically Star Trek. I may never be a full-fledged trekkie, but even a special-effects obsessed child of the eighties can see just how amazing this show and—as Virginian Heffernan wrote in The New York…

We today have our final installment of "re-reviewing" the older Corsair Hydro Series AIO coolers on our modern testing platform. Two years ago the Corsair H110 proved itself to be a good value when it comes to sealed liquid All-In-One CPU coolers, but how does it perform a couple of years later?

  • Google+ Officially Splits Into Photos And Streams

    2 Mar 2015 | 9:03 am
    It would seem that Google+ has a new boss and has been officially split into Photos and Streams. That's not to say that Google+ is dead yet—at least not officially. But it does suggest that Google is moving away from the pure Plus branding, which suggests an overhaul may be not too far off. Indeed, last week, speaking to Forbes, Google's senior vice president of products Sundar Pichai, said that "I think increasingly you'll see us focus on communications, photos and the Google+ Stream as three important areas, rather than being thought of as one area." Clearly, this news separates out…

The Z97 MPower AC is MSI's flagship offer when it comes to Z97 Express based motherboards. This board not only comes with a massive 20 phase digital power design but also lots of additional overclocking and gaming related features. Other than that MSI provided this board with their unique and good looking color scheme, where basically almost anything is black apart from a few yellow spots. Comments

    10 Feb 2015 | 5:36 am
    Bjoern Negelmann and the Gartner Hype Curve of Social Business I wrote up 2 notes in our Agile Elephant Blog (over here and here) on the state of Social Business today, but here is a summary: In essence I buy Bjoern Negelmann's analysis at the Enterprise 2.0 Summit in Paris last week that it is in the Slough of Despond phase, and the only way is up (see picture above). This is confirmed in my view by the latest McKInsey report on the subfect, which essentially notes that it is here to stay, and more and more companies expect to expand its usage. I also think the fact that two "New New" memes…
  • Digital Chindits

    31 Jan 2015 | 12:04 am
    The British Army has resurrected the Chindits, one of the special force units used in WW2 to operate behind enemy lines - in their case to operate behind Japanese lines in Burma. It was formed by Brigadier Orde Wingate following a successful usage of Boer commando style tactics in the British/Commonwealth reconquest of Italian East Africa in 1940. The new Chindits are to fight behind the lines in the digital wars - Torygraph: ...the new unit's focus will be on "unconventional" non-lethal, non-military methods such as "shaping behaviours through the use of dynamic narratives", an Army…

The technology, which delivers news, messages and calls directly to a user’s field of view, has been on sale in the UK since June, and in the US since 2013. In a statement posted to its Google+ account, the company said the Glass team would move out of the “Google X” incubator labs and become a separate division. What the "New New" form will be is anybody's guess, but I'd suspect it…

    The next edition of Charlie Hebdo went on sale on Wednesday, and the production run was up from 60,000 to c 5 million - and rather than c 25% of 60,000 copies being remaindered, this time 5 million was probably not enough. (The money will be going to support the families of those killed, though there is a bit of a sour note starting with people trying to sell copies on eBay) If the aim of the shootings was to cow Hebdo and its satire it has been a complete failure so far, and also far any attempt to further inflame France (if anything the UK media seems more cowed than the French).

    Over the years, many folks in the broadcast and entertainment industries have made it increasingly clear they'd love to see tools like VPNs or proxy services made illegal. Sure, both are perfectly legal and have a myriad of valid purposes, but because they can allow users to dodge anti-piracy snooping efforts (like the not-really effective U.S. six strikes program) or geo-blocks (like say watching Netflix in unsupported countries) -- apparently they should be outlawed entirely. You know, like in Iran -- and now Russia. Canadian law professor Michael Geist notes that several Rogers, Bell and…

    Your law enforcement panic of the day: an app that automatically uploads recorded footage and forwards it to the ACLU. New Jersey's ACLU branch put together "Police Tape" back in 2012, an app which allowed anyone to record cops with a press of a button. The app then hid itself while the recording continued. If the recording was interrupted, the app would automatically send the recording to the ACLU. The app also advised those confronted by cops of their rights in various situations. The app is apparently no longer available, but ACLU-NJ reported 30,000 downloads within the first few months of…
  • AT&T's $30 'Don't Be Snooped On' Fee Is Even Worse Than Everybody Thought

    Karl Bode
    2 Mar 2015 | 8:03 am
    Last week we noted that while AT&T has been trying to match Google Fiber pricing in small portions of several markets, it has been busily doing it in a very AT&T fashion. While the company is offering a $70, 1 Gbps service in some locations, the fine print indicates that users can only get that price point if they agree to AT&T's Internet Preferences snoopvertising program. That program uses deep packet inspection to track your online behavior down to the second -- and if you want to opt out, that $70 1 Gbps broadband connection quickly becomes significantly more expensive.
  • Late Friday, White House Announces That FISA Court Has Rubberstamped NSA Phone Record Collection, While Insisting It Wants Reform

    As per its usual method of releasing news it would rather not talk about, on Friday evening the White House released the news that it had, once again, gotten a rubberstamp approval from the FISA Court for the NSA to collect in bulk basically all your phone records. As you probably know, this is just the latest in a long series of reapprovals by the FISA Court, which needs to reauthorize the program for limited periods of time each time the previous rubber stamp "expires." What hasn't made much sense in all of this is that President Obama announced a year ago that he wanted to end the bulk…

In October last year, we reported that Privacy International had filed a criminal complaint against the company with the National Cyber Crime Unit of the UK's National Crime Agency. There's no update on that move, but it seems that a parallel action has had more success (pdf): British-German surveillance company Gamma has been condemned by a human rights watchdog for its failure to adhere to human rights and…

Although, I must say, although I like the idea behind Patreon, I don’t like the execution much. It’s very inflexible. Why can’t I set up different types of patronage for different endeavors at different price points? Why is everything either recurring by month or recurring by thing created?

    Microsoft got in on the budget smartphone trend at MWC with their announcement of the Lumia 640 and 640 XL. While it’s usually pretty hard to differentiate between budget phones in terms of hardware, the 640 and the 640 XL both have features that make them very intriguing for anyone looking to pick up a cheap, entry-level smartphone this year. The Lumia 640 XL is the headliner, powered by the quad-core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 SoC, with unfortunately only 1 GB of RAM.

They’re both impressive in their own way, but it’s worth noting that there are more differences between the two than just the inclusion of LTE on one of them.

  • New Lollipop devices not encrypted by default

    2 Mar 2015 | 9:21 am
    Big news a few months ago: Google announced that all new devices which ship with Lollipop would have encryption enabled by default. Fast forward to today, and aside from Google's own Nexus devices, none of the new Lollipop devices actually seem to have encryption enabled by default. It turns out that Google has quietly relaxed this requirement in the Android Compatibility Definition, from 'MUST' to 'very strongly RECOMMENDED'. Why? Performance, supposedly. Our best guess at this point is that the encrypted-by-default requirement was relaxed to give OEMs more time to prepare their hardware for…
  • Chip makers will merge in deal worth $11.8 billion

    2 Mar 2015 | 1:14 am
    NXP Semiconductors said on Sunday that it would buy a smaller peer, Freescale Semiconductor, in an $11.8 billion deal that would create a big maker of chips for industries as varied as automobiles and mobile payments. The merger will also offer some relief to the private equity firms that bought Freescale at the height of the leveraged buyout boom, only to see the financial crisis bring the company low. NXP is Dutch, and I have to admit, seeing a Dutch chip maker acquire Freescale makes me feel a little bit proud. Together with ASML, my little swamp does contribute at least something to the…
  • Samsung unveils Galasy S6, S6 Edge

    1 Mar 2015 | 11:10 am
    Samsung, naturally, is hoping to put the Galaxy S series back on people's radar as a top device, and it's doing so by starting afresh with the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge. Though it numerically follows the GS5, the Galaxy S6 bears little resemblance to the previous model, and marks a pretty significant change in the way Samsung designs phones. At the same time, the S6 edge picks up the fun parts of the Galaxy Note Edge and leaves behind the poor software experience. There's a brand new design philosophy in play with the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, starting with the radical hardware change and flowing…
  • HTC unveils One M9

    1 Mar 2015 | 10:28 am
    It's hard not to have high hopes for the HTC One M9. Its immediate predecessor and the first phone in this rebirth of the HTC's flagship line - that'd be 2014's HTC One M8 and 2013's M7 - were fan favorites, and highly regarded by those of us who critique phones for a living. But those phones were not without their flaws. And as we've seen HTC slowly address its devices' shortcomings (while growing and innovating in other areas), it's been difficult to not expect it to finally get things - all the things - right. At least that's what we've been hoping, especially when it comes to its one…

This long period can only be explained by how awesome Xfce 4.10 was. But as all things, it needed some refreshing - and for that we saw lots of new contributors providing valuable feedback, features and bugfixes. As always, Xfce follows its steady pace of evolution without revolution that seems to match our users' needs. In this 4.12 cycle, we mainly focused on polishing our user experience on the desktop and window manager, and on…

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

For that reason, I haven’t read any blog posts regarding the show. If this sounds like I’m borrowing the observation of others, I’m actually not (this time, at least). I did read one review and it was insightful (unlike this post, perhaps). It’s written by Gwen Ihnat at AV Club. She calls the episode, “A gimmicky but successful…

    How do you share a collection of YouTube videos in an email newsletter or on the social media. The best option is that you create a new YouTube playlist, add all the videos and then share the link (URL) of the playlist. The privacy of the YouTube playlist can be set to Unlisted if you would like to hide your video list from search engines. It is easy to build playlists in YouTube but they are always connected to your YouTube channel or Google Account – you cannot create a playlist on YouTube anonymously without logging in to your account.

  • Android Wear crosses the one million downloads threshold

    2 Mar 2015 | 11:42 am
    Google's Android Wear app hit the auspicious one million download mark Monday, as first reported by GigaOm, indicating just how many many be strapped to people's wrists. The milestone jumps past last month's analyst estimate of about 720,000 Android Wear shipments, which many considered a sign that Android Wear was a flop. However, as we've seen at Mobile World Congress this week, hardware makers are just starting to get their sea legs when it comes to making good-looking watches. To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

  • Microsoft’s Greg Sullivan gives 1.5 billion reasons why Windows 10 will change everything

    2 Mar 2015 | 10:54 am
    BARCELONA—You know that moment in spy thrillers when the hero suddenly realizes the scope of the evil genius’s nefarious plan? I had a moment like that at Mobile World Congress, when I sat down to talk with Greg Sullivan, Microsoft’s Windows Phone Director of Public Relations. Not that anything he said was evil. He just made me stop short and realize why Windows 10 really could change everything for Microsoft.The reason why is encapsulated in one number: 1.5 billion. That’s how many Windows users exist worldwide, according to Sullivan. “We expect many will upgrade,” Sullivan said.
  • Blizzard's new WoW Tokens let you play World of Warcraft without a subscription

    2 Mar 2015 | 10:52 am
    "When's World of Warcraft going free-to-play?" It's a question I think has been on the mind of every MMO fan for at least a few years now. Well, that dream is still a ways off, considering how the game's latest expansion (Warlords of Draenor) raised subscription rates back up to former highs. But Blizzard is adding a secondary subscription model that might interest the hardcore: WoW Tokens.  WoW Tokens apparently function similarly to Plex in EVE Online. World of Warcraft players can buy these tokens with real-world money. Each token corresponds to a month of game time. Tokens can then be…

    Rich Julius, Principal Product Manager, Progress Easyl Rich Julius introduces 7 data preparation and data blending challenges that delay timely analytics.

The people asking the questions just want answers, and often don’t understand why it takes so long to get them.

    Data integration is a crucial part of every Big Data strategy. Data drives decisions. That piece of wisdom is often taken for granted, but businesses still seem to struggle with it. They continuously gather data, but rarely do they use it to its fullest potential. They track clicks on their websites and sensor readings from Internet of Things (IoT) devices that capture important customer buying behavior, geolocation data and other business-related information. Then they shovel it all into a data warehouse where web traffic and sales data and data from SaaS applications all have their own,…

    What is the value of social media as it relates to retail ROI? Is there a point in putting sharing buttons on my e-commerce website if I don’t know how that translates to actionable data regarding revenue? Everyone is doing things with respect to social, but in e-commerce, what is the point? Can I even truly attribute social data to return on investment? These are good and absolutely fair questions.

  • Why Customer Service is the Future of Social Marketing

    Tamar Weinberg
    28 Oct 2014 | 5:30 am
    In 2006, social media was building steam in the United States. With the rise of Facebook’s popularity, the launch of Twitter, and the surge of influence from social news sites like Digg, social media looked to be a great breeding ground for marketers to make their mark. And make their marks they did. Digg was an incredibly powerful platform to drive traffic and pageviews to reasonably good content. Initially, the network really had the cream of the Internet crop on its frontpage, and the “Digg effect” would take websites down just like that. Visitors flocked to the homepage…

It requires a mindset of tuning into those communications, but because they come from so many different directions, it also requires a toolset. I won’t give it away, but after running a social media customer service department 100% singlehandledly and helping our customer base grow from about a half a million customers to over 1 million (through social media almost exclusively), I have a few tricks and tips up my sleeve.

    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…

    Smartphone commoditization has hit Taiwan’s HTC (TPE: 2498) hard. The top handset maker by volume in the US in 2011, HTC cratered over the next two years, posting its first annual loss in 2013 as Samsung (KRX: 005930) and low-cost Chinese brands chipped away at its market share. By 2014, HTC was no longer one of the top ten handset brands by shipments and held a pithy 1.5% share of the global market. Analysts warned of HTC’s impending demise and suggested a buyout to increase its competitiveness. Going private would allow HTC to pursue strategies without an immediate payoff, but which…

    I’ve reviewed tripod mounts for smartphones before, however the good ones I’ve looked at in the past were fine as long as you only wanted to mount your smartphone horizontally. Horizontal mounting is desired by film makers for sure. There are times when you may want a vertical mount especially if you’re shooting stills or time lapse. For this I turned to the good folks over at Arkon (the makers of mounts for just about any device) and sure enough they had one that was exactly what I was looking for. It had to be able to rotate between horizontal and vertical orientation and…

It’s hard to imagine that what started out as a product that most people at the time didn’t even understand why we’d need it, would become such a phenomenon that entire industries have been built upon. I of course like many of you begin to think back to the first version of Photoshop that I ever used. For me it was Photoshop 2.0.

It requires only a few moments, and it’s memorable, effective and highly productive. Ready? It’s very complex: Call a customer you don’t normally interact with. That’s right.

Now look at the remaining companies — the 80-85% of your customers who are not the biggest revenue generators. How many of them can graduate into your “largest customers” category? Identify them. List them. Write down the name of the human being that buys from you next to each company. If Excel is your preference do it there. These people are your HPSCs: your High-Potential Small Customers.

Because if it’s the latter, your happiest customers are your greatest source of revenue! Unhappy customers bring us their issues on a daily basis. But the happy ones rarely call to compliment. They stay quiet. Your good work is expected, and taken for granted. We must be proactive about reaching out to our happy customers. We must ask them what they’re happy about, and uncover what we’re best at. More…

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

  • Kathy Griffin to Revamp ‘Fashion Police’ Following Kelly Osbourne’s Depature? How?

    Kimberly Ripley
    2 Mar 2015 | 10:26 am
    Kathy Griffin reportedly has plans to ‘revamp’ Fashion Police in the wake of Kelly Osbourne’s sudden departure last Friday. Griffin was named as the show’s replacement for Joan Rivers, who passed away this past September. Kelly Osbourne resigned from Fashion Police following an inappropriate comment co-star Giuliana Rancic made about Disney star Zendaya on the red carpet at the Oscars. Zendaya sported dreadlocks, and Rancic said they smelled like ‘patchouli or weed.’ RadarOnline reports that had Kelly Osbourne not resigned, she would have been fired. The…

    Leonardo DiCaprio has signed on for the role of Billy Milligan, a man acquitted of both rape and robbery because he exhibited 24 personalities, in the upcoming film The Crowded Room. Contact Music calls the role DiCaprio’s ‘most interesting yet,’ and believes it will make the actor an Oscar contender for next year. The film project is based on the 1981 non-fiction book The Minds of Billy Milligan by author Daniel Keyes. Billy Milligan died in 2014 at the age of 59. He was accused of robbery and of raping three women on the campus of Ohio State University in 1977. He and is…

    2 Mar 2015 | 9:27 am
    Kelly Osbourne announced last Friday that she was leaving her spot on E!’s Fashion Police, just days after her co-host, Giuliana Rancic, made a very inappropriate comment about Disney star Zendaya’s hair on the Oscar’s red carpet. Zendaya wore long dreads with her Oscars gown, and Rancic said she smelled like ‘patchouli or weed.’ Now a report claims Kelly Osbourne had no choice but to resign from Fashion Police–even though Giuliana Rancic issued a very public apology for her remark. “Being the feisty and stubborn character she is, she would find it…

    Gionee Mobiles is set to announce their latest flagship device, the S7 in Barcelona today. This will be the first time that the company hosts a major keynote at MWC so there is a lot of excitement around the device. After coming up with the S5.1 and the S5.5, the S7 is expected to be slightly beefier than the previous two devices. It does look like that Gionee has realised the importance of having good specifications over device that looks just sexy and hence the move to a slightly heavier exterior with internals better done. According to the leaks in the media, the device is expected to…

    The next Galaxy is here and it is as expected exactly the way every one of us had anticipated it to be. The two devices were leaked out very thoroughly over the internet in the build up campaign, intentionally or unintentionally from the company itself. However, unlike the last couple of Samsung Galaxy devices, the Galaxy S6 is an aesthetically beautiful device, which has received a lot of positive feedback from the media which is on ground having hands-on time with the phone.

    HTC has announced the HTC M9 in Barcelona. As expected and seen through in several of the leaked images, the device is exactly as we had envisaged. It is not drastically different from what we have seen in the HTC M8 though there are a fair few things that have been changed around for better or for the worse. For the worse definitely cause HTC has done away with the dual lens setup on the back and gone with a singular camera, so for those who really liked the lens blur effect would be extremely disappointed. Other than that, the power button has been moved to the right side of the device and…

    One of the best things about an Android device is the customisations that it offers. And thanks to a very active developers community the things that come out from the closet codes are absolutely jaw-dropping at times and you feel suddenly the universe makes so much more sense. One such moment came in last evening when Microsoft announced a new keyboard that was specially designed for those who are addicted to Excel. As a numbers person, I use Excel a lot, be it on the computer or on the phone, barely a day goes by when I have not seen the vertical columns and horizontal rows come face to…

It was just a bit of common sense and you could tell with the timelines that Apple would be active around MWC to draw all the attention to itself, and that is exactly what has happened. The first week of March is all set to about MWC and the latest and greatest in the mobile world, but surely one event that everybody would now be looking forward to the most would be the announced Apple Press/ Media event on March 9th.

  • 5 Reasons why Wireless Charging Never Caught on

    Aditya Shenoy
    28 Aug 2014 | 11:14 am
    The first thing that comes to mind when you read wireless charging is that of a phone magically charging the moment you’re in a particular zone; just like Wi-Fi. Sadly that’s not how wireless charging works in the present day. You need a charging base on which you need to place a wireless charging compatible phone and it starts charging. It works on the principle of inductive charging — where in the charging base and the phone has coils to transmit energy without having to connect any cable to the phone. Quite a lot of manufacturers attempted to crack the market and introduce…

    With new smartphone recycling websites coming up everyday, it can be very confusing as to where to sell your smartphone for the best possible deal and get the most money. To get the maximum possible price, where you choose to sell your smartphone becomes very important.

However, some small businesses are still hesitant to make the leap to the cloud, for various reasons. Security concerns are at the forefront of most entrepreneur’s minds; the consequences of a security breach can be devastating to a small business, so many simply opt to keep all functions in-house.

  • Easily Convert DVD To iPhone6 With DVDFab DVD Ripper

    How often have you wished there was an easy way to watch all the favorite movies on DVDs on your iPhones and iPads? Despite of so many DVD rippers available today in the market, most of them are often too clumsy or take too long time to convert DVDs to supported video formats. Even if you manage to save some of those DVDs on to your hard drive (which will not be an easy task, given that most of the movies come in copy-protected DVDs now-a-days), playing them on your iOS devices via iTunes may not be as easy because of the number of tracks, sub-title files and folder structure of the DVD.

Whether or not such a delivery service pans out is less important than the buzz (no pun intended) it created – as a kickstart for the drone industry.

  • SanDisk revolutionizes mobile storage with 200GB microSD Card

    Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla
    1 Mar 2015 | 5:52 pm
    It's kind of a shame that Samsung's Galaxy S6 devices no longer accept microSD cards, because SanDisk's new 200GB card really pushes the storage limits. 200GB is more than what many notebooks ship with and SanDisk has made it possible to store vast amounts of data on a tiny card. The latest microSDXC card will have transfer speeds of up to 90MB/sec and will come to market during Q2 of 2015 for an SRT of US $400.00. Oh, and if regular sized SD Cards are your thing, SanDisk has also released a 512GB Extreme PRO SDHC/SDXC card ideal for digital cameras and video cameras.

Earlier today at the MWC 2015, HTC unveiled the much anticipated flagship and while much of the rumor mill had it right on the specs, there was only one flagship – no HTC M9 Plus or whatever big sized phone was being speculated with variants of MTK processors! Lets see what the HTC M9 brings us. The Look and Feel The M9 looks exactly like the M8 and this is where HTC seems to be creating a ‘clan‘ of the flagship device it…

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

Apple just released its numbers for the quarter ending last December, the first quarter of its 2015 Fiscal Year. The figures are astonishing: iPhones:  Apple sold 74.5M, + 57% over last year’s same quarter. iPhone revenue was $51.2B, + 57%. That’s enough iPhones for 1% of the world population, 9.4 iPhones for every second of the past quarter.

Satya Nadella, the CEO of Microsoft, was asked by ABC News what he expects to be obsolete technology in ten years. As the commander of the technology juggernaut, he ought to know. His quick answer was the fountain pen. Fountain Pens? Aren’t They Already Obsolete? Be careful to whom you say that.

    Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia that causes problems with memory, thinking and behavior. Known as the 6th leading cause of death in the United States, Alzheimer’s is a general term for loss of memory and other intellectual abilities that potentially interferes with daily life. Reports suggest that more than 5 million Americans are living with the disease. In most people, symptoms first appear after the age of 65 years. It is estimated that 1 in 3 seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or another dementia. There are different signs and symptoms associated with…
  • How to Avoid a RAC Audit?

    Meghann Kiernan
    26 Feb 2015 | 10:20 pm
    Recovery Audit Contractors (RAC) audits, as physicians know, are part of the government’s program to reduce fraud, waste, and errors in medical billing practices, especially Medicare and Medicaid. Improper payments include incorrect payment amounts, miscoding, non-covered services including those that are not reasonable and necessary, and duplicate services. Though RAC audits came under scrutiny recently and were put on hold, the government announced plans to restart them in August 2014. Physician practices need to be ready for complex and automated reviews on claims related to spinal…
  • ACA Grace Period and Importance of Insurance Verification

    Natalie Tornese
    24 Feb 2015 | 6:30 pm
    Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), consumers who purchase subsidized coverage through health insurance marketplace (receiving premium assistance through federal tax subsidies) are given a 90-day grace period for paying their premiums before insurers are allowed to drop the coverage. Many reports show that though several people signed up for exchange plans, they have not paid premiums to maintain the coverage. Tracking down the patient months after providing a service to collect payment is really difficult. This marks the importance of performing insurance verification for exchange plan…

    SEO is important for physician practices, hospitals and other healthcare facilities. Healthcare practices may be in the business of imparting health, but they face stiff competition as in any other field. They need medical search engine optimization services to get favorably placed in search results. Now, with Google launching its new online medical information initiative in the US, people are surely going to be using the search engine more and more to look for health-related info. Medical practices must capitalize on this new development. Why Medical SEO is Relevant Google has introduced…
  • What You Should Know About Enrollment in Obamacare

    Rajeev Rajagopal
    20 Feb 2015 | 12:12 am
    Obamacare rolled out on January 1, 2014 and for those who enrolled in a health plan on December 24, 2013 via a federal or state health insurance exchange, coverage began on January 1, 2014. It’s important to know the facts. Many young adults are putting off buying health insurance through the exchange and think they would be better off paying the penalty of $95 a year or 1% of their income (whichever is higher). With plans on state-based exchanges costing as much as $200 to $300, young people also feel that it would be better to sign up for Obamacare only when they have a serious health…

    Shawn Cardamon

    Right down to business, let’s talk about the top five reasons I personally see to skip Windows 8, and go direct to Windows 10. Through a ton of exposure to numerous IT firms during my time as a ConfigMgr admin and Solutions Engineer, I see the path ahead and it is not Windows 8 for most organizations. This advice should be taken in context of course, as this mindset applies to the greater audience of enterprise IT and not your trendy tech firm stocked with people who build their own PCs on a regular basis. Oh, and if you are reading this and asking yourself the question “is 1E on Windows…
  • Energy cost are dropping, should we care about PC Power Management anymore?

    Simon Rust
    20 Feb 2015 | 2:42 am
    Recently, the cost of oil has dropped significantly (presently under US$50 per barrel – by way of comparison, the same barrel was over US$100 during the summer of 2014) and as a direct result we are seeing the costs associated with the provision of energy to homes and businesses drop. So, given that we are automatically getting cheaper energy provision, do we really need to care about PC power management? The answer of course is usually “it depends” but typically businesses are not just targeting themselves on their direct operating costs, but also other measurements such as their…

    You've probably noticed that I use some pretty big photos on each blog post here. That should mean big file sizes - but it doesn't have to. When you take a high resolution digital photo and simply resize it for your web site you are NOT compressing it. Or if you are, then you are probably not compressing it as much as you could be. Lets take the photo on this post as an example. The original photo from is 720kb and 2511 × 1671 pixels. I only need an image that is 790 x 420 so I will use Preview on my mac to resize and crop it.

  • Increase the screen resolution on your Macbook

    I use a macbook air as my only computer and I do not have an external display. This means that my screen has a maximum resolution of 1440 x 900.

There were always too many things that I couldn't do on the front end that meant I was forever switching between the two. Editing your site can be hard I get it that people don't want to be bothered with the complex interface of the administrator and prefer to edit their content in place. This has been possible for a very long time in Joomla for content items but not for modules. So you still needed to switch to the admin interface to edit…

    A friend of mine’s son recently returned from an extended absence which basically removed him from nearly all aspects of technology, including the Internet, for a bit longer than 5 years.

To be fair, the guy grew up in an Internet world, with access to online resources including Facebook, Twitter, and other social applications.

It then compares those readings to either a previous reading or to an established manufacturer’s baseline to determine the state of the chip. There are numerous uses for the technology…
  • Redefining WAN in Light of Cloud

    Tracy Corbo
    17 Feb 2015 | 6:32 am
    Thanks in large part to investor-driven demand for constant double-digit growth, the WAN optimization market has taken a substantial beating, and as a result the term “WAN optimization” has become something of a lament. Vendors looking to distance themselves from the term have latched onto the “software-defined” bandwagon, and the result is “SDN WAN” or “SD WAN.” However, the need for WAN optimization is not going away; in fact, it is only going to increase because the WAN is a critical component of cloud-based deployment models. Cloud is not a magic fix for all that ails IT.

    Have you ever tried to create a major slide presentation on a tablet? Or edit a large spreadsheet? Or write a long document? Probably not. While it’s certainly possible to perform more substantial business tasks on a tablet, the small screen real estate and limited system resources (e.g., processing speed, memory, graphic support, etc.) are typically insufficient in current tablet form factors. However, carrying a laptop around with you everywhere you go just so you can access email is not very practical either. The reality is that we live in a multi-device world where the average worker…

The Samsung ATIV SE launched with little fanfare in April of 2014 for Verizon Wireless. Featuring a 5-inch 1080p display the phone look built for Windows Phone 8.1. However, Samsung never delivered a proper 8.1 update, so instead the phone still rocks Windows Phone 8.0 Build 10532 (Update 3) making it feel quite antiquated. Verizon…

    Since the advent of Web 2.0, social interaction is king. Now, almost every single mobile app works in the environment of its users exchanging ideas through content authoring, comments, likes and shares. Even the simplest and most “personal” of them, like personal planners, address books and to-do lists, enable users to put their data in the cloud, share them with others and access them using a myriad of devices and interfaces. The bottom line is that every one of them needs a back-end and an API to talk to. All projects are executed through tight cooperation between back-end…

    Well, it had to happen! Once again, I am being paid to subvert the status quo. As some of the fourteen million spam bots and half-dozen Russian hackers that still read my blog know, my very first paid work as a writer was for a subversive publication that may have resulted in the collapse of the then still semi-apartheid government of South Africa. Yes, gentle readers, for in that publication, there were pictures of women. Scantily clad ones, that usually bared their breasts! (Yes! Yes, gasp!

  • Top 10 Books to Un-Borg

    14 Nov 2013 | 7:02 am
    I have been thinking of doing this for a long time. Actually I plan to extend it to 100 books that I think are a good foundation for anyone to read in order to have a more rounded, more able, and most of all a more independent way of thinking than just unconsciously going along with the greater reactive biomass that is carefully being shaped by TV and other mass media, including this here Internet. Just to be clear then, my criteria for whether a book makes it into my top 100 is primarily based on the practical, real effect it has on you awakening from the dreary, matrix-like slumber induced…

You will note from the image at the top of the post, taken in mid June, (the 12th to be precise) the DANGER that citizens, in their zombie-like stupidity could be exposed to and big brother government is SAVING LIVES and no doubt THINKING OF THE CHILDREN.

    Without a doubt, when looking to technology, one can see it has changed the way we do business. Even thinking back 20 years, you can see that businesses have changed, for the better.

With this in mind, it’s wise to consider technology’s role in supply chains, and here are five things to think about with regards to this important subject.

    You know the steps to startup fundraising: Target potential investors Get warm introductions Set up tons of meetings Get serious with a handful of prospects Make your pitch Negotiate your terms Sign term sheets Voila, you’re funded! While this seems straightforward, in reality the process is much more fraught. In the best case, getting funded can take months, and in the worst, you might end your quest without a single signed term sheet. Oh, and have I mentioned that it’s a full-time job? Physical endurance is one thing, but how do you prepare yourself for the mental and emotional toll?

    In a world that is becoming increasingly knowledge-based, products are becoming highly digitized. A recent study of IT professionals reported that over 30% of their workplace environment is virtualized. We’ve even created an acronym for these kinds of services: software as a service (SAAS). Usually, a company provides subscription based access to subscribers allowing these subscribers to use software in the cloud. The software itself is hosted by a third party, SAAS service provider, which is responsible for maintaining software or hardware associated with the application. Overall, there…

    When I was a kid, I thought by 2015 we would be flying around in cars like The Jetsons.  It appears we aren’t there just yet, despite my wish for us to be flying around by now!  However, we have come a long way in powering vehicles. We have all seen many new hybrids and electric vehicle alternatives come out from a variety of manufactures and certainly seen their acceptance grow, especially as we saw gas prices increase over the last five years. This is coupled with the growing desire of the general public to be more “green.”  But, is the future of automotive electric or hydrogen?

  • Nature and Nurture: A Validation of Idea Screening

    Paul Crowe
    19 Nov 2014 | 11:15 am
    Our overnight idea screening tool, Ideas Overnight, has become a big hit with our clients. Since launching in March of 2014, over 30 clients in the US have used the tool to expedite and improve their innovation process. Interestingly, we still receive the occasional question of whether or not idea screening is a “validated” tool. Clients who aren’t quantitatively screening their ideas want to know whether or not idea screening can predict later concept scores (and, by extension, success in the market). I’ll admit that I have often taken this for granted as the typical non-quantitative…

    In my day-to-day work focusing on product development and product testing related issues, it’s always interesting to see that some of the seemingly most basic questions are the ones that are the most difficult. One of the struggles I’ve witnessed most recently is the struggle to identify the “right” competitive benchmark, whether the objective is to innovate or renovate. There are numerous trends impacting or fundamentally changing our ability to identify that one key competitor. I was reminded of this when I was reading about McDonald’s Q3 performance just last week, which saw a…

    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…

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

  • Class Action Lawsuit Against Google Thrown Out

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

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

  • AdWords’ New Strategy: Call Me Maybe?

    Andre Sólo
    24 Feb 2015 | 9:08 am
    Would you be willing to pay for an online ad that doesn’t take customers to your website? For many businesses the answer is apparently “yes,” at least if that ad puts them in touch with you by phone instead. That’s the idea behind the newest type of Google AdWords ad, the “call-only” ad. Call-only ads appear in mobile search results. They look like normal ads, but tapping on them doesn’t take the user to your website. Instead it shows your number and prompts them to tap to call you. In other words, it funnels toward phone instead of web.

    For the first time ever, scientist have snapped a photo of light behaving as both a wave and a particle at the same time. The research was published on Monday in the journal Nature Communications Scientists know that light is a wave. That's why light can bend around buildings and squeeze through tiny pinholes. Different wavelengths of light are why we can see different colors, and why everyone freaked out about that black and blue dress. But all the characteristics and behaviors of a wave aren't enough to explain everything that light does. When light hits metal for example, it ejects a…

    We've always wondered how eBay got its name. The "e" seems like it might stand for "electronic" — common shorthand in a lot of company names from the dot-com era, but what about Bay? Now we know, thanks to a profile of founder Pierre Omidyar in New York Magazine. The eccentric engineer was obsessed with the public-health system's inability to cope with large-scale health crises, particularly ebola It was around the time of the movie "Outbreak," so the idea of a pandemic was in a lot of people's minds. After purchasing the domain he filled the site with pages of ebola-related…

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

    Pundits are saying that the President and other officials of the government was lucky when Pope Francis decided to go impromptu on his homily for the mass he celebrated in Leyte – where super typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) did the worst damage when it ravaged the country a little over a year ago – and put aside his prepared speech as it contained passages that fly into the face of the ineffective and short-sighted efforts of the government. I couldn’t agree more. Just read the most powerful portions of the said speech and I’m certain Aquino and his horde are sh*tt*ng bricks:…

With the rise of online attacks, where small websites are being used to attack bigger and more valuable online properties, there is a growing consensus that every website owner, publisher or operator join hands in making the internet a more secure place.

    Live events are a marketer’s best opportunity for face to face engagement, product demonstrations, and time with prospects to explore business solutions. Last week, I attended the event MAGIC in Las Vegas and was blown away by their ability to provide the perfect environment for sponsors, exhibitors, and conference attendees to connect with one another. Walking the floor and attending seminars, reminded me of the importance of live events and the benefits of having a presence as a sponsor and exhibitor.

  • How to Effectively Communicate with Designers

    Beyond PR

Or, maybe you know exactly what you want, but are having trouble getting that result. Let’s break down a couple of typical conversations that happen during the design process, and how you can help avoid the disconnect. You say: “I’ll know it when I see it.” Designer hears: “Create something, and then I’ll know it’s not what I wanted.” Providing Clear Creative Direction Would you ask an architect to go build a house for you…

    There are certain occasions when you need the exact coordinates for a specific location, but most map applications don’t show that kind of data front and center because it’s not something that is needed very often. I’ve learned that getting the GPS coordinates can be very handy if your GPS device can’t find a specific address. If you’re like me and haven’t updated your Garmin or TomTom in years, then a lot of newer areas simply won’t show up when you search for them.

    Have you recently downloaded a UIF file and now want to mount it so that you can view the contents? A UIF file is actually a MagicISO CD/DVD image file. The file can contain documents, photos, videos, etc. In order to view the contents, you have to first mount the UIF image file. There are many formats for creating images files of CD/DVDs, but UIF is used because it provides better encryption and also has better compression. The most common image format is ISO. Instead of trying to mount a UIF directly, the best option is to convert the UIF image to an ISO image and then mount the ISO image.

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

  • Is iron rain the reason why Earth and the moon are so different?

    Simon Redfern, Professor in Earth Sciences at University of Cambridge
    2 Mar 2015 | 10:43 am
    New experiments show that the asteroids that slammed into Earth and the moon more than 4 billion years ago were vaporised into a mist of iron. The findings, published in Nature Geoscience, suggest that the iron mist thrown up from the high velocity impacts of these asteroids travelled fast enough to escape the moon’s gravity, but stayed gravitationally stuck on more massive Earth. And these results may help explain why the chemistry of the Earth and the moon differ. When and how Earth’s metallic core formed is uncertain. Clues come from known differences in the preferences of certain…

  • Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge get pre-installed Intel Security protection

    Brian Fagioli
    2 Mar 2015 | 9:57 am
    Samsung surprised many yesterday, when it revealed not one new flagship device, but two -- the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. Both devices are drop-dead gorgeous, although the Edge is more so. If you decide to buy either phone, it is highly recommended that you buy a durable case. If you protect the hardware from damage, why not the inside too? Android is more open than iOS, and even if you stick to the Play Store, malware can still reach your device. Don't panic, however, as Samsung has wisely partnered with Intel Security to pre-load its anti-malware solution, McAfee VirusScan Mobile, on these new…
  • How Netflix helped millions of TV viewers cut the cord

    David Curry
    2 Mar 2015 | 9:53 am
    Netflix just won another indirect victory in the form of a net neutrality proposal passed by the Federal Communications Commission, which would ban all types of paid prioritization on the Internet. This means Verizon, AT&T and Comcast will be unable to seek more revenue from Netflix, in exchange for fast video streaming rates to Netflix’s 40 million US subscribers. Even though it is the removal of another roadblock, Netflix was already on its way to destroying the current cable industry, according to several TV business experts and analysts. Netflix did not win through the $7.99 per…
  • Archos unveils world's first 256GB Android tablet and 'Fusion Storage' technology

    Brian Fagioli
    2 Mar 2015 | 9:50 am
    Android tablets are a dime a dozen nowadays, making selecting one a bit daunting. Unlike iPad where you only must decide between full-size and mini, tablets running Google's OS come in various shapes, sizes, colors, and prices. In order to stand out among the sea of rectangular slabs, a company must do something bold and unique. Today, Archos announces the world's first Android tablet to have 256GB of onboard storage. Even cooler? The company announces its fusion storage technology, allowing internal memory to seamlessly combine with a microSD card. "The first ever Android tablets with up to…
  • Blackphone 2 caters to the enterprise, the security-minded and the paranoid

    Mark Wilson
    2 Mar 2015 | 8:59 am
    Yep, we know all about the NSA, thanks Edward. Yeah, it's possible (probable?) that a government agent somewhere is listening to or recording your conversations. And yes, even if you're not one of the tin-foil hat brigade, there's a danger that someone could tap into your phone. But you don’t have to be paranoid to want security; there are plenty of companies and enterprise customers for whom security is of the utmost importance. While much of the news coming out of MWC 2015 has been dominated by Microsoft's Lumia 640, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, and tablets from Sony, there's always room…
  • Windows Phone's biggest problem isn't apps

    Wayne Williams
    2 Mar 2015 | 7:22 am
    My colleague Brian Fagioli was right to reject Microsoft’s laughable claim that Windows Phone is experiencing 'impressive growth', and to also brand the tiled mobile OS as a failure. Android and iOS completely dominate the mobile space, and Microsoft -- which owns the desktop -- is nothing but a bit player. If you ask anyone why Microsoft has failed to succeed they will probably say "apps". The Windows Store has a fraction of the apps found in the Apple App Store and Google Play (aside from the main names, few of the many apps I used regularly on my iPhone are available on Windows Phone)…

But, realizing that vision requires transmitters that are powerful enough to broadcast to devices dozens of yards away but energy-efficient enough to last for months — or even to harvest energy from heat or mechanical vibrations.

  • MIT's new drug-delivering nanogel can be injected instead of requiring surgery.

    Scientists are interested in using gels to deliver drugs, because they can be molded into specific shapes and designed to release their payload over a specified time period. However, current versions are not always practical, because they must be implanted surgically. To help overcome that obstacle, MIT chemical engineers have designed a new type of self-healing hydrogel that could be injected through a syringe. Such gels can carry one or two drugs at a time. They are useful for treating cancer or heart disease. This nanogel can change shape when applying stress to it, and it can re-heal when…

    Guest blog post by David Bell, CEO of Gummicube. Most app marketing executives have a tough road ahead of them. There’s no clear way for many to understand the true volume of app store searchesfor any particular keyword, and competition across verticals is proliferating daily.

  • How to Offer Free Checkouts to Promote Your Product

    18 Feb 2015 | 2:11 pm

  • All flash storage performance testing

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

VVOLs queue depth problem? One performance problem from my perspective is that all VVOL FC IO is now funeled through a single Protocol Endpoint (PE) LUN for a single storage system. There may be some potential queue depth issues, but Satyam and Howard both said that queue depths have been greatly increased over the last decade or so and this shouldn’t be a…

Apparently it wreaked havoc with the communications infrastructure of the time (telegraphs). Researchers have apparently been able to discover other similar events in earth’s history by analyzing ice cores from Greenland which indicate that events of this magnitude occur once every 500 years and smaller events typically…

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

  • Confessions of a Technology Profiler

    Joe Kinsella
    8 Feb 2015 | 2:52 pm
    After years of being in the closet, I'm coming clean: I'm a technology profiler. In my never ending search for good engineers, I instinctively form opinions of the quality of someone's software talent based on nothing more than what I see in their profile. It's like a facial tic I can't get rid of. For example, you say: "I write ASP.NET code to SQL Server in a big company", and I think: "No freaking way can you build complex software in a fast moving startup." Or you say: "I'm writing the multi-threaded backend of a cloud-based distributed system in a startup using Haskell", and I think:…
  • 5 Requirements Not Found In My Job Descriptions

    Joe Kinsella

    I get asked on a regular basis what I’m looking for in engineers. I think most people are expecting the answers found in a typical job description - e.g. CS degree or equivalent, 4+ years commercial software experience, work experience with modern language (i.e. Python, Ruby, Scala), multi-threaded programming, and so on. But there is a fundamental truth of hiring that often gets lost in traditional job descriptions: great engineers are not defined by their degree, number of years experience, or the technologies they work with - but by their core abilities / traits. Here are the 5 abilities…

Last year venture capitalists invested almost $5 billion in local companies, making the tech sector one of the fastest growing segments of our local economy. In addition to the professional freedom and challenges that comes with joining a startup, the re-opened IPO market and a steady flow of M&A hold out the possibility of financial success should you pick a winner. But choosing the right startup can be challenging for professionals already in the community, and even more so for those…

Arriving a little early for an informal coffee meeting last November, I spent a few minutes reviewing the books, which ranged from histories (e.g. Ambrose’s D Day) to tech non-fiction (e.g. Innovator’s Dilemma) to self-help / how-tos (e.g. Learning Rails). When the partner I was meeting came out, I couldn’t help but ask: “Where do all the books come from? Partners bring them in?” “Oh no,” he said. “Those all…

    20 Jan 2015 | 3:00 am
    Our expectations about what exactly our computers can achieve is changing. We’re no longer tied to PCs or even laptops, and flexible technology is starting to hint at a future where electronics easily (and consistently) interface with our everyday lives. Organic electronics is groundbreaking enough, but an additional ‘wow’ factor in future tech has to be gesture recognition. It’s surprising just how much can be achieved with organic electronics, and the incorporation of flexible technology and its use in applications such as bio-scanners is interesting. What makes this possible is the…

  • The Venture Capitalists Behind Superfish

    23 Feb 2015 | 1:14 pm
    Lots of people are talking about the Superfish malware debacle. People are starting to understand just how bad this situation is. What I haven’t seen so far why venture capitalists would have backed such a startup. Superfish investors, board members and advisors include Andrea Stavopouslos (Draper Fisher Jurvestson), Abe Finkelstein (Vintage Investment Partners), Anat Segal (Xenia Venture Capital), Shai Saul (DFJ again) and others. The company has raised a total of nearly $20 million in venture capital, from people I interact with all the time. Superfish tells the world they’re a…
  • We Deserve A Better Bitcoin Experience Than Circle

    17 Feb 2015 | 11:34 pm
    I finally got around to trying out Circle today. Boy it’s bad. Particularly for a company that has raised $26 million. This is a space we’re interested in at CrunchFund, and are looking for who might be the breakout winners. Circle is supposed to be a dead simple Bitcoin wallet and money transfer service. But here’s my experience: 1. I created an account and tried to add my bank account and credit card to deposit money into the system (as Bitcoin). I had to give a lot of personal information. And I had to take a photo of my drivers license. And then I had to take a selfie.
  • I’d like a combined ebook/audio book product

    Michael Arrington

    Just finished reading about a fairly stupid new book scanning product from Amazon and it reminded me of a product I’d actually really like to have – books that comes in both ebook (text) and audio formats, with tracking and the ability to switch back and forth at will. I read most of my books on my iPhone 6 plus now. Before that was an iPad. I also listen to audio books in the car and on walks. But sometimes it takes me months to finish a book in the car @ 13-20 hours of audio, and whatever book I’m listening to there in the car is of course a different book than the one…

    Up until now only iPad/iPhone people could use MTailor, the app that uses your mobile device to scan you more perfectly than any tailor ever could, and have shirts made to your exact measurements. I last wrote about them in December when CrunchFund invested. Since then they’ve sold a LOT of shirts. They haven’t started offering pants or suits yet, but once they do they’ll already have your measurements. People on Android devices were frustrated that they couldn’t use MTailor. Now they won’t be frustrated any more. Get the Android MTailor app here. It launches…
  • The Conference In Detroit

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

  • Best device for Online Gaming with Slots!

    Rahul Banker
    12 Feb 2015 | 1:52 am
    Slots have been around since the 19th century, though the earlier versions were much more primitive compared to the games you can play today. Originating in New York, the game was invented when Sittman and Pitt created a type of gambling drum that consisted of a lever and 50 card faces. The players would pay one nickel to place their bets and when the drum stopped spinning, the outcome was based on poker hands. Winners would receive a payout in the form of drinks, merchandise and food. No money was awarded to players and so although the game gained some fans, it didn’t explode on to the…

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

Whilst Samsung does not name the company or companies that to which it send the audio recordings, Nuance is one likely contender as it provides voice-recognition and analysis to a number of technology companies, including possibly Apple’s Siri.

    A few days before MWC 2015 kicked off, LG unveiled not one but two interesting wearable devices, and even though they share the same name, they’re actually quite different. The LG Watch Urbane LTE model that I saw earlier is a SIM-enabled smartphone on your wrist, a device that’s pretty bulky, even though it looks good and you could easily get used to that big metallic piece of technology on your hand. But the real looker on LG’s hands is the LG Watch Urbane that looks even better in real life than in pictures and videos. Continue reading...

Samsung and HTC both announced stunning new flagship smartphones during separate press conferences on Sunday, but one succeeded in reinventing itself while the other showed off an iterative update that was decidedly far less exciting. Where Samsung's new Galaxy S6 and of the Galaxy S6 edge are concerned, Samsung will really only have one competitor when it comes to flagship smartphone sales, and that's the iPhone 6; simply put, no other company…

What made the event all the more exciting is that Apple was successfully able to keep important details of the device completely under wraps. In a broad sense, sure, we knew Apple was likely to introduce a wearable device of some sort. But key details surrounding the device's capabilities, and even what the design looked like, remained unknown until Tim Cook officially walked up on stage and unveiled the…
