    As electronics miniaturization heads towards a theoretical physical limit in the tens of nanometers, new methods of manufacturing are required to produce transistors, diodes, and other fundamental electronic components. In this vein, a new range of molecule-sized devices have been created in the laboratory, though with varying results in terms of efficiency and practicality. Now a group of researchers from Berkeley Lab and Columbia University claims to have created the highest-performing, single-molecule diode ever made, which is said to be 50 times better in performance and efficiency than…

    Loz Blain
    3 Aug 2015 | 10:33 pm
    We love our tilting vehicles here at Gizmag, but we’ve never seen anything quite like the Swincar Spider before. It's a remarkable tilting 4-wheeler concept that boasts absolutely ridiculous rough terrain capabilities. Each wheel has its own electric hub motor and is independently suspended on a spider-like limb. The result is a vehicle that leans into fast turns like a motorcycle, but can also happily go up or down a 70-percent gradient, ride across a 50-percent gradient that puts the left wheels a couple of feet higher than the right ones, or ride diagonally through ditches that send the…

    Throwing together a minimum viable product, or MVP, is a great way to test your concept and find out what customers really want before you sink more money into the game.However, there's a fine line between tossing something together and a MVP that's too buggy to launch.

    Flash drives are a dime a dozen these days, and most of them carry uninteresting specifications.

We were surprised when Strontium sent us their announcement of the Nitro Plus Nano USB 3.0 flash drive with 100 MBps+ read speeds.

But what if you were to take the best characteristics of DRAM and NAND and create a whole new type of memory? Meet Intel's and Micron's new 3D XPoint, the next generation non-volatile memory technology.

They are also usually based on the enterprise level platforms. There is still a market for self-build workstations too, focusing most on ISV compatibility, hardware compatibility and longevity that cross the line between enterprise platforms and consumer…

    Beijing has released the new theme song for the 2022 Winter Olympics, and critics are pointing out it sounds like a blatant rip-off of "Let it Go" from Disney's hit animated movie Frozen. The song, titled "The Snow and Ice Dance" (Bing Xue Wu Dong), is performed by Chinese singers Sun Nan and Tan Jing. It's one of 10 official songs for the Games. So far, it's attracted an overwhelming proportion of thumbs-downs on YouTube. See also: Beijing wins bid to host 2022 Winter Olympic Games Listen to it for yourself: Sounds familiar?

  • Appeals Court Says Netflix Doesn't Violate Privacy By Displaying Viewing History To Anyone Using That Account

    3 Aug 2015 | 3:57 pm
    The Ninth Circuit Appeals Court has upheld a win for Netflix in yet another privacy class-action lawsuit arising from the publication of then-Supreme Court nominee Robert Bork's rental history oh so many years ago. The Video Privacy Protection Act sprang into being in 1988 and was used to extract a settlement from Netflix over 20 years later. The lawsuit Netflix settled featured one key difference: in that case, rental information -- in the form of "anonymized data" -- was released to third parties working on better suggestion algorithms in hopes of winning $1 million. In this case, no…

    Asset forfeiture: drop the charges, keep the property. I guess the person behind Saeki Co., Ltd. should feel appreciative he actually was graced with charges, rather than just had his purchased vehicles seized and spirited away with a mumbled explanation and some dodgy paperwork. Saeki Co. bought several luxury vehicles from a place called Texas Motors (which, oddly enough, is located in Florida) with the intent to sell them for a significant markup to wealthy Japanese citizens. This is possibly illegal, but not because of any explicit export ban. The only reason it verges on illegal is…

    Major movie studios are again trying to make a website they don’t like disappear without a trial. This time, the studios are asking for one court order to bind every domain name registrar, registry, hosting provider, payment processor, caching service, advertising network, social network, and bulletin board—in short, the entire Internet—to block and filter a site called Movietube. If they succeed, the studios could set a dangerous precedent for quick website blocking with little or no court supervision, and with Internet service and infrastructure companies conscripted as enforcers.

    Full-frame camera enthusiasts have a new piece of equipment to lust after today, with Nikon introducing a new version of its highly regarded 24-70mm f/2.8 lens. This time around, it has vibration reduction built in, which should make for significantly steadier shots if Nikon's other VR-equipped lenses are anything to go by. The new Nikkor lens has nine rounded aperture blades, which will make for pleasingly soft bokeh — the out-of-focus areas of an image that tend to look like colored bubbles — while reprising the original's weather-sealed design.

Given the crime, the police will typically respond in force, armed to the teeth in armor and guns.So far no fatalities have occurred due to swatting, but the possibility is there which is why the law does not take too kindly to such acts. It also seems that maybe this isn’t an issue to joke around with as popular Twitch stream Trick2g recently found out. The streamer was…

Heck, you can buy a titanium replacement hip online if you’d like to install one yourself. The question is, should you? While DIYing can seem to sometimes save money up front and be a satisfying endeavor, the fact remains that…

  • Windows 10: Changing the Apple vs. Microsoft Dynamic

    Rob Enderle
    3 Aug 2015 | 5:00 am
    What I find most interesting about Windows 10 is that if Apple wanted to knock Microsoft off the desktop, then it -- not Microsoft -- should have released a product like this. When I say "like this," I mean one that could transform a smartphone into a PC. My reasoning is that Microsoft is relatively weak in smartphones, and Apple currently is kicking Google all over the market. Given Google's power, that's pretty impressive -- of course, it is also largely Google's own fault. Granted, Apple would have to lead with iOS, not OS X.
  • Gadget Ogling: Useful Smartwatches, Orbital Cameras, and an Un-Procrastinator

    Dot is a smartwatch that may have life-changing implications. Rather than trying to convey information through tiny text on a small screen, Dot intends to provide visually impaired wearers with notifications through Braille. Four sets of the six dots that signify characters in the Braille system raise and lower as quickly as 100 times per second to denote four characters simultaneously, though users may opt to slow the watch down to a single character per second.

    31 Jul 2015 | 2:39 pm
    Angry Birds 2 -- the 13th installment of Angry Birds and the original game's first proper sequel -- on Thursday became available for iOS and Android. The free-to-play model is a call to players beyond its base. However, those new players may slip through developer Rovio's fingers if the game's features fail to motivate them to play with real money. Though there are 12 titles separating the first game from Angry Birds 2, Rovio revisited every element of the core game except for the iconic slingshot.
  • Mozilla Gripes at Microsoft for Giving Edge an Edge

    31 Jul 2015 | 1:24 pm
    Mozilla CEO Chris Beard on Thursday published an open letter to Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, calling on him to offer Windows 10 users an easier way to set their browser preferences. Beard characterized the lack of choice in the Windows 10 experience as "very disturbing." It appears to have been designed to force users into an experience Microsoft wants them to have instead of one they want, he charged. Users who upgrade to Microsoft's Windows 10 using the express setup will have the new Edge browser set as their default.
  • Hackers Make Smart Rifle Go Rogue

    Security researchers Runa Sandvik and Michael Auger have hacked a TrackingPoint smart rifle that was designed to deliver sharpshooter results, even for novices. They demonstrated their feat for Wired and will present their findings at the week-long Black Hat 2015 security conference in Las Vegas, which begins Saturday. The two purchased a pair of $13,000 rifles and spent a year working on them. They developed a set of techniques that could let hackers compromise the rifles through the weapons' WiFi connection.

  • As Cyberattacks Mount, Pentagon Looks for Ways To Retaliate

    3 Aug 2015 | 7:37 am
    A barrage of cyberattacks on government agencies, blue-chip companies and critical infrastructure has prompted Pentagon officials to take a hard look at adapting the military concept that helped keep the world safe from nuclear bombings during the Cold War to the digital battlefield of the 21st century. Mutually assured destruction, better known as MAD -- the doctrine that a nuclear attack would be met with an equally devastating counterstrike -- helped prevent the U.S. and the Soviet Union from using the massive arsenals they each amassed during four decades of armed standoff. Today, plans…

    Jody Kearns doesn't like to spend time obsessing about her Parkinson's disease. The 56-year-old dietitian from Syracuse, New York, had to give up bicycling because the disorder affected her balance. But she still works, drives and tries to live a normal life. Yet since she enrolled in a clinical study that uses her iPhone to gather information about her condition, Kearns has been diligently taking a series of tests three times a day. She taps the phone's screen in a certain pattern, records a spoken phrase and walks a short distance while the phone's motion sensors measure her gait. "The…
  • Online Viewers Won't Miss Super Bowl Ads Shown on TV

    3 Aug 2015 | 7:34 am
    Next year, you won't have to worry about missing the buzziest commercials of the Super Bowl if you can't get to a TV. In the past, not all advertisers bought online time along with a pricy 30-second spot during the most-watched TV event of the year. That meant online viewers had to go to a Super Bowl ad repository, such as Hulu and YouTube, to watch what they missed on TV. Broadcasters sometimes ran substitute ads online instead. This time, CBS says it's making all advertisers buy an online spot with their on-air time, so ads seen during the online simulcast will be the same as the ones on…
  • NBCUniversal Poised To Make Investment in Buzzfeed News

    3 Aug 2015 | 7:33 am
    NBCUniversal is in talks to invest as much as $250 million in Buzzfeed News as part of the traditional media giant's efforts to appeal to millennials who get much of their news online -- rather than from watching a talking head on TV. Negotiations are in advanced stages but no deal has been reached, according to a person familiar with the talks who was not authorized to discuss them publicly. NBCUniversal would take a minority stake in Buzzfeed, which has been a leader in publishing provocative stories that quickly gain big traction on the Internet, such as whether a lacy dress is the color…

    The engineers at Venice start-up Zefr needed to unwind after completing a months-long project. That's when they entered the "War Room," a specially built space inside the company's offices with computers lined up against the walls for one purpose: computer game tournaments. For the rest of the day, teams of five with names like Shades of Greyscale and Sit the Flak Down heckled, cheered and battled one another playing a classic first-person shooter called "Unreal Tournament." Winners got Nerf guns. Afterward, the nearly 300 employees were treated to Fatburger, snow cones and beer. "It's a work…

This week, I’m focusing on the newbies. Every year I try to offer some advice for people attending Black Hat, BSidesLV and DEF CON for the first time. As always, it’s based on my personal experience.

  • A “Faces Of DEF CON” Clique?

    Bill Brenner
    15 Jul 2015 | 5:25 am
    Recently on Twitter, infosec pro Marcus Carey voiced his dislike for all the “Faces of DEF CON” avatars people are using. Specifically, he said every time he sees one he wants to unfollow the person. Asked why, he opined that it was “infosec clique culture at its finest.” I responded that I was keeping my own avatar and that he could go ahead and unfollow me. It was an honor to be included in the “Faces of DEF CON” series by artist and fellow infosec pro Eddie “EddieTheYeti” Mize, I told him. He unfollowed me (he later re-followed) and asked…

A moment of reflection if ever there was one. It occurred to me that Liquidmatrix just had it’s 17th birthday this past February. That is a helluva long time for a website of any description. It has been a lot of fun to see the site grow from an insanely (ugly) basic HTML site to a heavily trafficked site with multiple members either writing and podcasting.

  • 4 Tips for Jaded Black Hat/DEF CON Attendees

    Bill Brenner

    Soon, in various publications, articles will appear with advice for folks attending Black Hat and DEF CON for the first time. Advice for newbies is important, and I’ve written my own survival guide for that over the years. But for this post, I’m speaking to the battle-hardened veterans who have made the journey repeatedly over the years. Having attended too many of these to count, I consider myself a veteran. Or, to put it another way, I consider myself among the jaded. “Jaded” is a negative word. It’s typically used to describe someone who is burned out and no longer impressed with…

    Like many of you, I was shocked last week to hear that Stephen “Jamie” Toulouse (@Stepto) had fallen into a deep coma. Family members took to social media to say that his prognosis wasn’t looking good; that he wasn’t expected to survive. But thanks to excellent medical care, prayer and what is surely a strong will to live, Stepto — director of hacker success at HackerOne — seems to have made it through the storm. Saturday, his family posted an update saying he was awake and breathing without help from a tube. “Although he is very weak, he has been…

    According to Sinmaintell Consulting, about 15 million AMOLED smartphones were sold in China in the first of 2015, up almost 20% compared to 2014.

The company's earlier estimate was $28.2 billion in the same year. The flexible OLED market will grow from $1.5 billion in 2015 to almost $3 billion in 2016 and over $16 billion in 2020.

    Samsung posted their financial results for Q2 2015. As expected, it was another weak quarter, with operating profits down 4% compared to last year. Samsung's main problems are in its mobile phone division that actually saw higher profits but the company is seeing a slump due to low and medium end phone pressure from Chinese makers and the fact that they could not make enough GS6 Edge phones to meet demand (as people prefer the Edge variant over the regular GS6).Samsung warns that the second half of the year is going to remain weak. In order to spur up sales, Samsung is set to lower the price…

    Anupam Varghese
    20 Apr 2015 | 12:12 pm
    I wish we have traffic signals where cut-out cats pop-up on the road. No more plain red lights. Let me explain.To anyone who has travelled on Indian roads, this should be pretty obvious; to others, it might sound fatally amusing. One thing that vehicle drivers in India seem inherently incapable of doing is stopping before the white lines drawn at traffic signals (that is if they decide to stop in the first place).Thankfully, there is ONE thing that can stop almost all of them: cats. A cat crossing ones path is considered inauspicious (to put it mildly) and Indians would do anything to avoid…

    Past slow streams, and paddy plains,A gentle breeze, the drizzling rain, A blue-bird tries catch-up in vain,To a soulful beat, my rocking trainBack ten years, my numb mind panes, A time that sure no more remains,Had no money and had no pains,Nor plans beyond the morrow made,When music was the sole refrain, And dreams my waiting soul had gained,To love, I was not yet ordained,Just longings that were best contained,In the sleepy city, along the drain,My good 'ol car, on a narrow lane,Driving with the rolled down panes,Humming a tune the radio made,Next to me, the guitar he played,My fingers…

    Social media has truly revolutionized our world, and in more ways than one. With it, information and content (be it visual, like in photos and videos, or written) are immediate and overwhelming, with huge amounts of content and data spread around each second. In an age where mobile devices like smartphones and tablets are widespread, being in the pockets and/or backpacks of each and every one of us, it should be no surprise that “specific” social networks or platforms are being created – that is, social networks dedicated to a single theme or subject.

The factors have combined to create an environment where consumers are demanding more efficient, transparent, and affordable legal services even as attorneys are looking for cutting-edge ways to compete in a market that may be coming oversaturated.

I don’t mean falling out of touch after you haven’t talked for a few years: I’m talking about literally being in a public venue, like a concert, and completely losing your friends. Location tracking platforms are one of those things that could be incredibly useful in a situation like this, but for whatever reason I don’t hear too much about them in my day to day.

This may come as a surprise to startup founders and business professionals alike, but Smith insists that these days, it’s all about who you know—and what they know. “The days of walking around with a business plan and pitch are over.

Palm pilots and personal organizers became one of the preferred method of eBook reading, but there were two problems. First of all, they were small and therefore not the same as books.

  • Google Photos — another one joins the club

    Brad Grier
    31 May 2015 | 8:52 am
    This weekend Google unveiled their new online image storage service — Google Photos. It’s not Picassa, though it can use it. It’s also separate from Google+. Interesting. Meh. I’ll stick with Flickr. Here’s why. If you want unlimited free storage, this may work for you, though when you upload your photos, you have to use Google’s ‘high quality but free’ setting, not the original setting. This means RAW and other file formats will be converted. Also, there doesn’t appear to be a way to share the link directly to the image file — rather all shared links jump to a Google…

    Back-to-school season is upon us, and that can only mean one thing: tweeting about those glorious, torturous years. Whether you're a teacher, a student, or someone who just misses learning, you'll definitely appreciate some of the tweets under #IfAnythingSchoolTaughtMe, where people are posting about the real lessons they learned. Most of the tweets are hilarious and too true, like taking long bathroom breaks or learning how to multitask without your teacher finding out. Others focus on regrets, like girls who can't believe they missed out on a day of their education because of a dress code.
  • 20 Absurd Struggles Only Millennials Could Understand

    3 Aug 2015 | 2:30 pm
    If you fall into the category of being a millennial, chances are you've been told you're entitled, lazy, and too connected to the Internet. While none of these characteristics may apply to you, or even encompass what it means to be part of the generation, the time has come to embrace the title. Being in this group means growing up on the cusp of using AIM and Facebook. Some of us might still even read paperback books. But we also have a handle on technology that's just as good as an iPad-obsessed toddler. It's our way of living, and other generations might not understand it, but that's…

    There are several challenges for national law enforcement authorities working in the global cyberspace, including the collection of evidence in the cloud, a topic that was the focus of the Council of Europe’s recent Octopus Conference on Cooperation against Cybercrime. One participant, a representative of a law enforcement authority in a small European country, spoke of his difficulty to obtain evidence to investigate local criminal activity when such evidence is in the form of digital communications stored in cloud servers based in the United States.

    Xavier Bettel, Prime Minister, Luxembourg Last week, Microsoft partnered with POLITICO to host the first Annual Cybersecurity Summit. The event comes at a key moment in time. Cybersecurity has never been higher on the political agenda in the EU and globally. And with good reason. This month’s cyber-attack on the U.S. Federal Government personnel office, which led to the information of around 4 million federal workers being stolen, is unfortunately not an isolated incident. This event reminds us once again of the importance of governments and companies ensuring the highest levels of…

    In November of last year, the high-profile hacking of Sony Pictures Entertainment resulted in the mass release of confidential information and the disruption of IT systems. This widely publicized event is one of many where a government has been accused of a damaging cyberattack. Therein lies the discontinuity. While cybercriminals of course act in disregard of the common good, governments are supposed to be different. Governments are supposed to protect the national security, public safety and economic prosperity of their own citizens and, even further, they are supposed to promote…

  • Verizon and its Canada Geese are just begging me to fly away to AT&T or T-Mobile

    3 Aug 2015 | 2:22 pm
    I love most animals. We've had cats, fish, frogs, hissing cockroaches, ladybugs, snakes and a ferret living with us at one point or another over the years, and are currently dog sitting. I'm a sucker for wildlife shows and just got back from communing with all sorts of beasts at Yellowstone and Glacier national parks. But if there's one animal I can't stand, it's the disgusting Canada Goose. It takes a gaggle of them about 30 seconds to turn our riverfront yard into a stinky mess. And who hasn't had a walk, picnic or sports activity marred by these creatures that only PETA could love.To read…

When I met Hartley, back in 1988, he was in his 60s and me and most of my friends were in their 20s. But we were united with Hartley as part of a group assembled by a Harvard University coach to row at the Henley Royal Regatta in England (I did not attend Harvard, but most of my Henley crew mates did). And sure enough, Hartley did provide us with the experience we needed to train hard and make ourselves…

    The Ninth Circuit Appeals Court has upheld a win for Netflix in yet another privacy class-action lawsuit arising from the publication of then-Supreme Court nominee Robert Bork's rental history oh so many years ago. The Video Privacy Protection Act sprang into being in 1988 and was used to extract a settlement from Netflix over 20 years later. The lawsuit Netflix settled featured one key difference: in that case, rental information -- in the form of "anonymized data" -- was released to third parties working on better suggestion algorithms in hopes of winning $1 million. In this case, no…

    Asset forfeiture: drop the charges, keep the property. I guess the person behind Saeki Co., Ltd. should feel appreciative he actually was graced with charges, rather than just had his purchased vehicles seized and spirited away with a mumbled explanation and some dodgy paperwork. Saeki Co. bought several luxury vehicles from a place called Texas Motors (which, oddly enough, is located in Florida) with the intent to sell them for a significant markup to wealthy Japanese citizens. This is possibly illegal, but not because of any explicit export ban. The only reason it verges on illegal is…

  • Can the OnePlus 2 equal mainstream success?

    3 Aug 2015 | 4:16 pm
    And right now, early adopters and smartphone aficionados are really the limit of OnePlus' customer base. Though the company has been able to build tremendous amounts of hype and attention through its fan forums, social media accounts, and on technology blogs, the reality is that OnePlus is far from a household name at this point. Selling 1.5 million phones, as OnePlus did for its first phone, is certainly impressive for an upstart company, but it pales in comparison to the number of units Apple and Samsung move each quarter. I find these numbers jaw-dropping, to be honest. This completely…
  • Lollipop now on 18.1 percent of Android devices

    3 Aug 2015 | 4:11 pm
    After skipping the month of July, Google is back in August with the latest distribution numbers for each version of Android. The numbers show that Android Lollipop is now on 18.1 percent of devices, making the jump from 12.4 percent when distribution numbers were last reported in June. Interestingly, KitKat is now on 39.3 percent, marking a tiny increase from 39.2 percent when numbers were last reported. Jelly Bean took a slight dive, making up 33.6 percent of installs, down from 37.4 percent in June. I always find these distribution numbers depressing.

  • The post-Mac interface

    3 Aug 2015 | 2:28 pm
    In 1996 Don Gentner and Jakob Nielsen published a thought experiment, The Anti-Mac Interface. It's worth a read. By violating the design principles of the entrenched Mac desktop interface, G and N propose that more powerful interfaces could exceed the aging model and define the "Internet desktop." It's been almost 20 years since the Anti-Mac design principles were proposed, and almost 30 since the original Apple Human Interface Guidelines were published. Did the Anti-Mac principles supersede those of the Mac? Here I reflect on the Mac design principles of 1986, the Anti-Mac design principles…

    Three months ago, Mr. Price, 31, announced he was setting a new minimum salary of $70,000 at his Seattle credit card processing firm, Gravity Payments, and slashing his own million-dollar pay package to do it. He wasn't thinking about the current political clamor over low wages or the growing gap between rich and poor, he said. He was just thinking of the 120 people who worked for him and, let's be honest, a bit of free publicity. The idea struck him when a friend shared her worries about paying both her rent and student loans on a $40,000 salary. He realized a lot of his own employees earned…

    Virtualization servers have been around for well over a decade — nearly two, if you virtual-lovers out there can believe it — but to countless users in the industry, the technology still seems alien and new. However, with the growing reliance on the cloud and utilization of servers by businesses and personal uses alike, virtualization is becoming an unavoidable issue in IT departments around the world. As with any new tech, the most pressing conversation regarding virtual environments is undoubtedly one of security. Most IT professionals agree that virtual servers aren’t necessarily…

To see exactly how well the new operating-system goes on with old hardware, Softpedia performed a quick test of installing and using Windows 10 on a 7-year-old Acer Aspire One powered by Intel Atom N450 processor clocked at 1.66 GHz, 1 GB of RAM, and a 320 GB hard disk.

  • Free Online PDF Invoice Creator

    In most offices, creating an invoice will take a lot of time. To make one, you need to determine your clients and the amount of money needed to create the bill. After identifying the details, you have to make the bill and then print it. You also need to track the bill to know if it’s paid or not. If there are complaints, you have to check all of your records to verify it. All of these processes will consume a lot of time.

    I haven’t commented on the outrage of the week, the killing of Zimbabwe’s “most beloved lion,” Cecil, by a big game hunting dentist from Minnesota named Walter Palmer. By the time I was aware of the Cecil killing, the internet outrage was far more than anything I could come up with, so I passed even tweeting about it. Besides, the only thing I could think of to say that I hadn’t seen before was how white the dentist’s teeth were — obviously, a Photoshop job. The competitive nature of internet outrage is fascinating. My recent post about the…

    Because I’ve blogged a rather long time, I now have the privilege to point back to things written long ago (as history is so prone to repeat itself). For instance, five years ago, I shared my theory that the products Google constantly releases fall into two categories: the “Lucy Google” product or the “Pigpen Google” product. I point to that earlier post because of the failure of Google+ as a product (but a failure that contains many products that IMHO, once freed from the social networking shackles of Google+ will be successful), If you are wondering what I…

However, this feature roll-out was announced yesterday and is worth a special shout-out. (I’m a fan-boy of Google Maps.) As described by the Google Maps blog, the “Time Line” feature on Google Maps will not only let you tie location information to a Google Map, if you use Google Photos, it will display those on the timeline and map, as well. A similar “photo-on-map” feature has been on Flickr…

If you are among the 12 people who read this blog, I don’t need to catch you up. South Carolina did the right thing. Other states should follow. And, members of the U.S. House of Representatives should also. From the Washington Post story, “As S.C. prepares to lower battle flag, Boehner calls for Confederate review,” comes this quote that…

    Data is eating me alive. Every gadget these days can shoot photos and record video. The move to smaller but faster SSDs hasn't helped with storage. I captured 275GB of photos and videos on my last trip. Just one trip! And I'm just a hobbyist photographer with a mere 12MP camera. If you shoot with any regularity and a 20MP+ camera you'll easily be clocking more than a terabyte a year. Where on earth do normal people store that much data?

    As the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter finally receives active combat clearance, and enters the Air Force as a battle-ready aircraft, we saw a lot of caveats of the troubled Lockheed Martin’s fighter program. In a nutshell, it’s over budget, over the planned timeframe and over the much needed operational limit for current USAF and NAVY fighters as well. Sadly for the program, it is also weaker in combat than a 40 year old F-16, yet alone F-15 and F-18 fighters. This means, that in true facts and reality the F-35 is so much delayed, that current F/A-18 and F-16 fighters are nearing…

However, thanks to the convoluted and confusing invite system that exists for OnePlus, picking up the OnePlus 2 will not be as easy device to procure as some of the other retail devices and sometimes you may have to play the waiting game. The device officially will go on sale…

    Microsoft released the official update to Windows 10 yesterday for laptops, desktops and most of the Surface devices. This is the Windows Update that has been met with most enthusiasm till date, primarily because Windows 10 is pretty much everything that Windows 8 should have been which was less than very enthusiastically taken by the customers as well as the tech critics. It is finally that we have a full baked Windows OS available probably since the days of Windows 7. Add to it that with Windows 10, Microsoft is finally looking to do away with software fragmentation and bring everything…

    29 Jul 2015 | 9:25 pm
    OnePlus 2 became realistically the first device to ship with a USB Type-C port. The new standard was adopted across the line of devices including mobiles, tablets and laptops recently in order to bring some sort of standardization across the devices as well as get done away with the limitations of the currently used USB and Micro USB ports that are direction specific. If you have used Apple’s lightening connector you will understand the importance of a connector that works in either direction as it really takes a major hassle off your head.

    Russia is led by a master spy who rarely needs to dirty his hands. During the Cold War years, this master spy was rarely in the firing line, although he was always well-prepared for facing all kinds of dangers. He is also an innovator. Recently, the Socialist-led Greek government almost thumbed their noses at the European Union, falsely believing that this spy was about to help them out of debt. He recently demonstrated what strong leadership is capable of during lean times. Ex-KGB spy Vladimir Putin is firing over 100,000 government workers in order to cut costs and roll back his country’s…

    Recreational shooters and hunters should be shuddering in their boots. They should also be wondering whether they are about to become targets rather than the other way around. Charlton Heston and his National Rifle Association should be taking note of this. The world of guns, pistols, rifles and live ammunition may just become more dangerous. That could happen if hackers are allowed to continue getting away with murder. Some hackers are quite happy to spend time and money perfecting their art. With a sick sense of accomplishing something simply because they can, they may smile occasionally…

The hip-hop mogul announced on his Beats 1 radio show "The Pharmacy," that he’ll be dropping his first new album in 15 years entitled “Compton A Soundtrack.” He describes it as his “grand finale” on Twitter so we speculate it’s his last major album, but then again we can be wrong.

  • Moto G (3rd Gen) vs Mi 4i – Quick Comparison & Initial Thoughts

    3 Aug 2015 | 8:59 pm

The last two generations have been highly successful and we strongly feel it will be the same with this one as well as they have included some surprise features like the IPX7 certification which none of us thought would come. They priced it around the same they did for the 2nd generation – 12,999 INR. One of the phones that will come to your mind at this price is the Xiaomi Mi4i. We have extensively used the Mi4i and also got to spend some time with the Moto G (2015) at the launch event and have some good…

All of these were successful in their own right and the world has seen the 2013 and the 2014 variants. Today, Motorola has unveiled the 2015 variant of Moto G in two variants.

  • No Cardiac Stress Tests for Low Risk Adults – ACP Advises

    Natalie Tornese
    2 Aug 2015 | 9:25 pm
    In their new guidelines, the American College of Physicians (ACP) advises that adults who are at lower risk for heart disease need not undergo screening tests such as EKGs and other cardiac stress tests. Cardiac screening tests help physicians identify whether their patients are at increased risk for heart disease. Billable screening tests may do more harm than good if ordered when they are not needed. ACP guidelines say their research reveals that these tests are overused in patients who don’t require them. The guidelines published in the Annals of Internal Medicine mainly focus on cardiac…

    Chronic pain is cited as the number one reason why Americans visit a physician. It is a leading cause of disability and is a major contributor to healthcare costs. In fact, chronic pain affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined. According to a 2011 report from the Institute of Medicine (part of the National Academy of Sciences), chronic pain affects more than 100 million American adults. Both chronic pain and prescription opioid abuse are quite prevalent in the United States and continue to exact a heavy toll on patients and physicians. Individuals with chronic…

    It has been established beyond doubt that the health care in the U.S. is the most expensive in the world at 8.508 per capita. Implementing the Affordable Care Act will be meaningless unless the U.S. finds ways to reduce overwhelming health care costs without sacrificing the quality of care and improving access for patients.

    Regular screening increases the chances of detecting certain cancers early, when they are most likely to be curable. However, screening strategies vary in intensity and value. Many people have a lack of understanding about the trade-offs of screening. Studies report that patients and many physicians overestimate the benefits and are unaware of and/or downplay the potential harms of cancer screening. High intensity screening strategies are not necessarily high value care. In a paper published recently in the Annals of Internal Medicine, the American College of Physicians (ACP) issued advice…

    Fibromyalgia is a long term condition characterized by widespread pain in the muscles and soft tissues surrounding the joints throughout the body. Reports from the National Fibromyalgia Association show that about 10 million people in the United States suffer from this condition. Even though this condition affects both men and women, about 80-90 percent of cases account for women (mostly middle-aged women). The most common symptom associated with this condition is widespread pain that may initially begin in one area of the body such as the neck or shoulders and eventually spread to the entire…

    One of the striking things about Windows 10 is that as well as continuing to support the three classic deployment scenarios that are currently being used for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, Microsoft is also adding a new one: the in-place upgrade scenario. As a result, the core deployment scenarios for Windows 10 are: New Computer This scenario occurs when you have a blank machine you need to deploy, or an existing machine you want to wipe and redeploy without caring about any existing data.

    Part of the job of a technical author is to edit, review, read and understand articles that people have written. So you get a feeling for what works and what doesn’t. The primary conclusion I have drawn from this is that simplicity is key. Simplicity makes things quicker to read. It makes them easier to remember and increases the satisfaction level of the reader. Sounds like simplicity is good, can you go too far? Before you can simplify you need to have a clear understanding of what you are trying to say in the first place. You can oversimplify by leaving out essential information and not…

    I recently was at a customer that used a build depot for Windows OS deployment to new and previously used computers before they were delivered to employees’ offices. The depot enabled the customer to build up to 100 computers a day and the customer had the peace of mind knowing that every computer being built was getting the same Windows image and applications.  This process has been in place for well over a decade and had been accepted by employees as the standard process for receiving their computer.

    As we approach Joomla's 10th Birthday it is not surprising that my mind is drawn back to the days of August 2005 when it all began.

There is a fun game called "six degrees of separation" and this is my attempt at finding the connection between Hollywood star Vin Diesel and Joomla. Step 1.

    What front-end developers do, what it is like to be a member of the female minority studying computer science, whether there are going to be more women in IT and if books should be read twice – I’m talking to Paulina Żmijewska, Front-end Developer at Goyello, involved in the Webmerce and BarberBooking projects.Paulina, how did it happen that you started working at Goyello?I came here when I was still at the university.

  • The Art of Performance tuning and Optimization

    6 Jul 2015 | 7:44 am
    About 2500 years ago there lived a brilliant Chinese military strategist, general Sun Tzu. His life’s work was a book entitled “The  Art of War”. It is full of ideas or in a way design patterns for winning small to large-scale conflicts in the most optimal ways.Even though the book is now 25 centuries old it still inspires leaders in our times. Sun Tzu believed that one of the better ways to win a war was to avoid a fight in a clever way. In our beloved software industry there are actually quite a few who believe the same. You may have heard that the best code is the one you never…

    So, you are a tester? You play games all day long then!Well, not really. Since I started working as a software tester I’ve been hearing this opinion again and again. Most people are convinced testers do nothing else but test computer games, which for them means they play all day long at work. They couldn’t be more wrong!Testers work not only for game dev companies. They work in IT departments of companies operating in various sectors. They can also be found in software solution houses, like Goyello. And even if they work for game dev companies, you may be surprised to hear their work is…

    1 Aug 2015 | 9:39 am
    I am going on record with my best guess before it all comes out. This assumes no censorious SJW vast conspiracy or sudden “electrical fire” doesn’t destroy the unadulterated ballots. I don’t seriously think there is a real possibility of the voting being unfairly counted or outright faked, but… humans. You know the species. Anyway, here are my predictions: Vox Day will actually get a nomination for best short form editor. The only corollary to this is the whole category not being No Awarded, which is possible, but I will tend to assume it is probably not the…

    I was one of those people who pre-ordered the apple watch at 12 am on April 10 and still got the shipping estimate of June. I had bought the Space black stainless steel with link bracelet. It cost a whooping $1195 with taxes here in California and I was praying that it better be god damn good to justify that price. Sadly, it wasn’t. When I got it on June 2nd, after the usual adrenaline rush of unboxing an apple product subsided, and after using it for about a week, I came to the conclusion that this is a product that Steve Jobs would never have let to be launched in its current state.

    Windows 10 officially launched last week, and Microsoft is reporting unprecedented demand for the new operating system. That is not the only big announcement they made, however. Microsoft says that their search engine, Bing, is also going to grow tremendously—to the tune of 15 percent. Not convinced? Here’s their reasoning, and what it will mean for your online presence. Total Bing Integration One of the most important predictors of which search engine a person will use is which one is built into their device.

The author of six books and editor of several anthologies also oversees one of the world's most prestigious magazines, the weekly New Yorker. One thing Remnick is careful not to do is waste time — and that includes not hanging out for long on social media. He told Business Insider on Monday that while he does go on Twitter from time to time to check in on what people are saying about important issues, he's cautious about "the danger of going down the…

Also: the corruption and mishandling of state workers’ and private sector workers’ pension and health insurance funds. Those are the problems begging to be solved. There’s no problem either with non-registration of SIM cards. The real problem lies in the failure of authorities to use all tools at their disposal to dismantle, arrest, and prosecute syndicates.

    We love our tilting vehicles here at Gizmag, but we’ve never seen anything quite like the Swincar Spider before. It's a remarkable tilting 4-wheeler concept that boasts absolutely ridiculous rough terrain capabilities. Each wheel has its own electric hub motor and is independently suspended on a spider-like limb. The result is a vehicle that leans into fast turns like a motorcycle, but can also happily go up or down a 70-percent gradient, ride across a 50-percent gradient that puts the left wheels a couple of feet higher than the right ones, or ride diagonally through ditches that send the…

  • Build a Grid Layout For WordPress Using WP_Query

    John Morris
    16 Jul 2015 | 4:25 am
    Here’s how to build a grid layout for WordPress via shortcodes and WP_Query: A lot of WordPress developers immediately rush to query_posts in order to create custom loops. But, query_posts is meant for altering the main loop of a WordPress page/post (actually, it’s not even recommended for that anymore). Using get_posts() is okay… but, if you want that real WordPress flavor using WP_Query is the way to go. In the video above, I show you how to use WP_Query to create a custom loop inside WordPress in order to build a Pinterest-style grid layout. Here’s the code I used…

  • MTE Explains: What Exactly Is Cyber Warfare?

    Miguel Leiva-Gomez

    For the millennia, our concept of war has been inspired by the countless battles in which people went head on and slashed each other into bits with sharp blades. The invention of the gun, in its own right, has ultimately shifted the way we picture war, with soldiers shooting each other from a distance in hopes of overwhelming the enemy and dwindling their numbers. In a way, most of the world fights in wars that involve physical violence. However, with the growing dependence of government institutions and citizens of nations around the world on the Internet, we’ve found a new arena in…

    It might look free, but you pay for it in other ways. Khaos VFXWindows 10, it seems, is proving a hit with both the public and the technology press after its release last week. After two days, it had been installed on 67 million PCs. Of course, sceptics may argue that this may have simply been a reflection of how much people disliked Windows 8 and the fact that that the upgrade was free. For others, though, it is the very fact that the upgrade is free that has them concerned that Microsoft has adopted a new, “freemium” model for making money from its operating system. They argue that,…

It’s effectively a collection of clocks in space that serve up time information 24/7 free of charge to anyone on the planet who cares to listen. These timing signals have all sorts of important applications, but most people will be using them to help get from A to B with the aid of GPS navigation tools. Well, actually to within about 10 metres of B. On the scale of humans and cars that’s a fairly substantial margin of error, as anyone who’s missed…

This could be the “all-in-one” video streaming service many Australians have craved, bundling together the three leading video-on-demand (VoD) services: Netflix, Stan and Presto. However, it also puts Telstra in an odd position, straddling multiple services, some of which compete with other products Tesltra is intimately involved in, such as Foxtel. It also underscores how the introduction of VoD services have disrupted and fragmented…

  • Macs are vulnerable to Thunderstrike 2 firmware malware that survives formatting

    Mark Wilson
    3 Aug 2015 | 2:27 pm
    Macs have long been touted as being immune to viruses and malware -- but there have been plenty of vulnerabilities that show this to be a fallacy. Apple's own claims that its hardware was not susceptible to the same firmware security flaws as PCs served only to encourage people to prove the company wrong. At Black Hat USA on Thursday, researchers will demonstrate that not only can Macs be remotely infected with malware, but that this malware can survive a user formatting the system. In a talk at the InfoSec event in Las Vegas that focuses on all manner of security topics, Trammell Hudson,…

It's something that was present in Windows 8, and it is still billed as a way to sync settings and apps between computers. While you may be encouraged to use a Microsoft Account, it is not necessary -- you can use a local account, but if you decide to download apps from the Store, you'll be prompted to switch this to a Microsoft Account. If you're concerned about the privacy implications of using a Microsoft Account, you may want to avoid using it whenever possible. Sign into the Store with a Microsoft ID,…

    The world of computer viruses has changed drastically over the last 25 or so years. In the early days, internet users were very naïve towards email attachments, contributing to the alarming speed that viruses could spread across the globe. These days, viruses very rarely land in our inboxes due to preconfigured firewalls and strict measures from the likes of Gmail and Outlook. However, when viruses do successfully infect machines and propagate effectively, they can be highly destructive in their nature and bring some of the largest corporations to their knees. While some viruses are created…

Lights, among many other things, can be set or simply controlled from a phone or tablet, and thermostats are going that way as well. The problem is security, as IoT devices can have all sorts of problems that people haven't faced before. Nest can change your home's temperature on its own and a hacker could, potentially, do the same. That's part of what this update is designed to address, though there are other features as well.

    Is the battery in your smartphone being used to track your online activities? It might seem unlikely, but it's not quite as farfetched as you might first think. This is not a case of malware or hacking, but a built-in component of the HTML5 specification. Originally designed to help reduce power consumption, the Battery Status API makes it possible for websites and apps to monitor the battery level of laptops, tablets, and phones. A paper published by a team of security researchers suggests that this represents a huge privacy risk. Using little more than the amount of power remaining in your…

    Apple’s number competitor delivered disappointing results and faces a touch second half 2015. Regardless, Samsung is promising to fight back by producing more Galaxy S6 Edge smartphones and by giving buyers a healthy, but as yet undetermined Galaxy S6 Edge and S6 discount.Love or hate Apple, the iPhone 6 has performed above and beyond expectations. Although investors gave Apple a $60 billion haircut, the company nevertheless delivered record setting results on strong Mac and iPhone 6 sales.Little wonder then that Samsung is choosing to respond with, one suspects, stiff Galaxy Edge S6…

    Now send Whatsapp messages from Google Now Remember when Google Now added the feature to send text messages with a voice command? Yeah. Remember when text messaging was cool? Probably not. Earlier, the fix to this was to make Whatsapp your default messaging app. Not quite convenient if you ask me. However, in the latest update (i.e., the one that came just a couple of hours before the time of writing this), Google now has rolled out a new feature where users can send messages to any of their contacts via Whatsapp/Telegram/Some Other Messaging Clients I never bothered to download.

  • Top Reasons Why Print Marketing is Still Relevant in the Digital Era

    Chethan Thimmappa
    14 Apr 2015 | 7:56 am
    Even if living in a digital era has lead us to communicate via text or email and to advertise via mobile devices or the web, print marketing is more important than ever. Marketers have realized that branded print material should be an integral part of any marketing mix. Therefore, in order to be successful, businesses shouldn’t fail to include valuable print marketing tools such as flyers (which you can order at very affordable prices online, like you can do here), brochures, catalogs, newsletters and business cards in their offline marketing channels. Business should rely on an offline…

And, this is for sure that a wonderful UI design greatly contributes to a remarkable UX while enhancing the credibility of a product.

  • Is Galaxy A8 a Sign of Samsung is Getting Serious with Product Design?

    31 Jul 2015 | 8:50 am
    There’s no doubt that Samsung is among the top handset makers. Though so, most people will agree that their design leaves a lot to be desired. However, last year, the company broke new ground (their ground, that is) by incorporating more premium materials into the Galaxy Alpha and continues to do the same for the current flagships, Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, and more recently the Galaxy Tab S2. The good news is, the company isn’t stopping at flagships or premium devices, the same design language has been carried over to the Galaxy A8, which was launched in China a couple of weeks ago…

    We knew it! Samsung will not just sit and watch its rival rolls out an awesome Android-flavored flip phone that everybody wants. No way that’s going to happen and so, this other South Korean electronics juggernaut is quick to introduce its own Android clamshell handset which it calls Galaxy Folder. A very apt name, isn’t it? As you know, the phone folds. If folding phone users have any care about specs, they’d be glad that Folder is a little ‘sexier’ on the spec-sheet, which includes a larger 3.8-inch touch display with 480 by 800 resolution, double the RAM at 2GB, a…

    A lighter is an essential item when heading into the wild, but in case you are not comfortable with carrying a mini fuel tank around, perhaps the good’ol flint and steel combination may be the way to go. More so, if the said flint and steel comes with a survival paracord braided into a convenient to carry and uber stylish bracelet or keychain, like Bomber Barrel’s Firestarter Paracord Bracelet and Keychain with Carabiner. The Firestarter Paracord Bracelet’s flint and steel also serves as the bracelet’s ‘clasp’, which is actually a pretty clever idea, while the cord itself is of…

  • Small tilt in nanomagnets makes them viable memory chips

    4 Aug 2015 | 1:05 am
    UC Berkeley researchers have discovered a new way to switch the polarization of nanomagnets, paving the way for high-density storage to move from hard disks onto integrated circuits. The research is reported on Monday, Aug. 3, in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, could lead to computers that turn on in an instant, operate with far greater speed and use significantly less power. A research team has found that tilting magnets slightly makes them easy to switch without an external magnetic field. This opens the door to a memory system that can be packed onto a microprocessor,…
  • MIT’s robotic gripper can adjust its grip using the environment

    4 Aug 2015 | 12:05 am
    Most robots on a factory floor are fairly ham-handed: Equipped with large pincers or claws, they are designed to perform simple maneuvers, such as grabbing an object, and placing it somewhere else in an assembly line. More complex movements, such as adjusting the grasp on an object, are still out of reach for many industrial robots. Engineers at MIT have now hit upon a way to impart more dexterity to simple robotic grippers: using the environment as a helping hand. The team has developed a model that predicts the force with which a robotic gripper needs to push against various fixtures in the…

  • Windows 10 è la rivoluzione che Microsoft ha tanto cercato

    3 Aug 2015 | 6:18 am
    Con Windows 10, Microsoft voleva svoltare dopo anni di crisi. Ci è riuscita. Era dal 2012 che Microsoft non presentava un vero nuovo sistema operativo e Windows 8 non aveva certo entusiasmato le masse, con le sue tile che non hanno mai veramente convinto il pubblico. Con le vendite fortemente in ribasso, Windows 10 non doveva essere solo un nuovo sistema operativo, ma una chiamata al cambiamento. E così è stato. Il nuovo Windows, infatti, non è un semplice sistema operativo, ma una piattaforma che in breve si diffonderà su PC, portatili, accessori indossabili, computer olografici e Xbox…

  • Next generation NVM, 3D XPoint from Intel + Micron

    31 Jul 2015 | 2:25 pm
    Earlier this week Intel-Micron announced (see webcast here and here)  a new, transistor-less NVM with 1000 time the speed (10µsec access time for NAND) of NAND [~10ns (nano-second) access times] and at 10X the density of DRAM (currently 16Gb/DRAM chip).

    24 Jul 2015 | 2:13 pm
    This week scientists at Oak Ridge National Laboratory have created two dimensional nano-electronic circuits just 1nm tall (see Nature Communications article). Apparently they were able to create one crystal two crystals ontop of one another, then infused the top that layer with sulfur. With that as a base they used  standard scalable photolitographic and electron beam lithographic processing techniques to pattern electronic junctions in the crystal layer and then used a pulsed laser evaporate to burn off selective sulfur atoms from a target (selective sulferization of the material),…

    I read a recent blog post by Adam Pisoni, CTO & co-founder of Yammer, titled I’m Sorry But Agile Won’t Fix Your Products. It’s a great read and drives home a truth that often gets overlooked in our industry: small, empowered and self-organizing teams almost always produce better products than larger, top-down led and longer-lived teams. Overall it gives you a glimpse into some of the newer approaches to management that have emerged from the Valley in the last few years (e.g. Holacracy, Lean). The only downside to the post was the fact he made a number of false statements about Agile…

In the early days of the internet, all you needed was a bunch of backlinks from wherever you could gather them in order to rank well. However with time, Google’s (and other search engines’) algorithms got smarter. It’s no use now for a website to have hundreds or thousands of links to their so called “money pages.” Over-optimising the anchor text in the hope of ranking higher boomerangs too. Sweeping…

    3 Aug 2015 | 9:20 pm
    For a select corps of comic book fans the Deadpool movie is one of the most eagerly anticipated events of 2015. They’ll be clamoring to watch the wise-cracking vigilante in action, hoping that someone’s finally made a comic-book adaption that “gets” them. And if the latest teaser for the official Deadpool trailer is anything to go by, then it looks like they may well get just that. Hosted by Deadpool himself (as played by Ryan Reynolds), the trailer doesn’t so much break the fourth wall as smash it into tiny pieces. Read more: 6 of our favourite trailers from…

  • Selfishly Altruistic: The Science Behind Sharing

    Renee Schmidt
    14 Jul 2015 | 1:09 pm
    Altruism is fascinating. Partly because it goes against what we understand of human nature —that people inherently desire the greatest amount of instant gratification with the least amount of effort. As I wrote recently, what separates us from our ape cousins is this very desire for instant gratification. Humans, because we have a better-developed pre-frontal cortex, can assess second, third, or even fourth order consequences of any given action, and CHOOSE to inject self-discipline in favor of a longer term outcome (i.e. pain now, gain later). The pre-frontal cortex is involved…
  • Are You Living a Lie? The Wisdom of Truth

    Renee Schmidt
    7 Jul 2015 | 8:05 am
    As a management consultant, my success hinges upon radical honesty. When a consultant is brought in, it’s usually because an injection of truth is required. As Albert Einstein put it best: “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” People are afraid of the truth. Avoiding the truth about situations, people, and ourselves, however, prevents us from learning and keeps us stuck in repetitive patterns that thwart our evolution and the attainment of that which we truly desire. This is no different in an organizational setting. Companies that…
  • Manifesting My Desires: Am I Worthy?

    Renee Schmidt
    6 Jul 2015 | 10:12 am
    I have been considering what it takes to manifest more of what I want into my life. This led me to question: am I worthy of what I want? And how does one determine self-worth or self-value anyway? The whole endeavor sounds like a big ego trip. It’s not. Three types of people will read this post; those with 1. healthy self-worth, 2. low self-worth and 3. inflated self-worth. Individuals with low and inflated self-worth are both egotistical; it’s just different sides of the same coin (sorry to be the bearer of bad news). Low self-worth often exhibits as not manifesting what we desire.

  • Why I Deactivated My Facebook Profile

    Renee Schmidt
    22 Jun 2015 | 7:24 pm
    I deactivated my Facebook profile. Why? Because no one cares. Well, actually, if you’re reading this post and have found your way here to my personal blog, you may care. But by and large, people will not. If you desire my substantiation, or thoughtful reasons why you may want to do the same, here are a couple of reasons why I’ve taken  my ~10 year old profile down. 1. Too much noise and none of it is of particular value. I noticed myself busy with Facebook but not getting any particular value out of it. In fact, the investment of time eventually began to generate a negative…

    3 Aug 2015 | 11:33 pm
    Apple computers have always been touted as more secure than other PCs because their firmware couldn’t be penetrated. Unfortunately, that’s no longer true, as a newly created worm has shown. Wired reports that security researchers Xeno Kovah and Trammell Hudson demonstrated a proof-of-concept worm they’re calling Thunderstrike 2, that’s capable of infecting the BIOS (also known as UEFI or EFI) of a Mac and can’t be removed by flashing the OS or even replacing its hard drive.

    Major movie studios are again trying to make a website they don’t like disappear without a trial. This time, the studios are asking for one court order to bind every domain name registrar, registry, hosting provider, payment processor, caching service, advertising network, social network, and bulletin board—in short, the entire Internet—to block and filter a site called Movietube. If they succeed, the studios could set a dangerous precedent for quick website blocking with little or no cour

    Now that Apple Music has finally been unveiled as part of the iOS 8.4 update it gives us a much better chance to see just what all the fuss is about. For those that have been very comfortable using digital music service Spotify for the past few years Apple Music has been somewhat of an interesting development. Initially it was thought that Apple were simply riding the coat tails of the aforementioned music provider trying to lure away iOS users to use their cheaper and more convenient music streaming service. But now it’s on the market just who comes out on top when it comes to price,…

    It was bound to happen sooner or later, with Apple taking on the computer, the phone and the music industry, it is now set to change the watch industry forever and redefine what a watch actually is. With the release of the Apple Watch came an innovative way of telling the time. No longer will we look down at our wrist to simply be told that it is 10 past 2, now we can also use it to communicate with others through a tap, a sketch or even our heartbeat. Not only this, but we can also be motivated by our watch through a snapshot of our daily activity, get directions and speak to our own…

    Brad Reed
    3 Aug 2015 | 6:30 pm
    We all know that major studios for the past several decades have been utterly lacking in imagination when it comes to signing off on potential blockbuster films. It seems like every major summer movie released is based on a comic book, an old television show or is a revival of an older franchise. Never, however, have I felt the unmitigated sense of horror that I just experienced when I found out that some studio is actually making a Pez movie. Continue reading...

    Vlad Savov
    4 Aug 2015 | 12:25 am
    Full-frame camera enthusiasts have a new piece of equipment to lust after today, with Nikon introducing a new version of its highly regarded 24-70mm f/2.8 lens. This time around, it has vibration reduction built in, which should make for significantly steadier shots if Nikon's other VR-equipped lenses are anything to go by. Of course, that's just one of a number of refinements, with a whole new optical construction for enhanced durability and sharper pictures, a fluorine coating for easier cleaning, and electromagnetic aperture control for consistent exposure during burst mode shooting.

    The first commercial for Motorola's brand new Moto G is here, and it does a good enough job of pulling off a laugh while showing off the desirability of Moto's new device. Here we see your average, lacrosse-loving party bro trekking across some unnamed desert. Parched and alone, he needs some inspiration, so he turns to his Moto G for support. He finds it, and the moment makes for a solid punchline, giving new meaning to the phrase "The thirst is real." Does our hero look a bit like a pickup artist, and therefore like a complete buffoon? Absolutely. Is the use of "Ignition (Remix)" by known…

    The Bryan Cranston-produced drama Sneaky Pete had its pilot picked up by Amazon recently, and today the show got its first trailer. Sneaky Pete stars Giovanni Ribisi as an ex-con who steals his prison cellmate's identity and starts working in the bail bonds industry. The trailer doesn't tell us much, but here's what it does say: there will be guns, broken glass, and at least one Cranston appearance (his first return to television since Breaking Bad).

    Of all the things that the now-hated Flash plugin brought to our internet experience over the years, it's not a stretch to say that the Homestar Runner internet toon is among the best. However, it's a cartoon that hasn't exactly got with the times; its creators have largely put it on the backburner over the last five years to work on other projects. As such, the site's cartoons (both new and old) are proudly dependent on Adobe's plugin, which is currently receiving death threats from a number of companies. As such, the Homestar Runner gang has weighed in on the impending doom the beloved…

    British R&B star FKA twigs is working on a new EP, and she premiered a piece of it today during Zane Lowe's Beats 1 show alongside a quick interview. "Figure 8" is menacing and mechanized, which is a slight surprise given that it's inspired by a fluid, fast set of moves from the world of voguing. (The song has been a part of her live sets since the beginning of the year.) The EP will be twigs' first release since her excellent debut, last year's LP1, but it doesn't have an official title or release date yet.

    (c) Not all data is created equal. Right there is why organisations are newly focused on risk based security where the crown jewels get more rigorous protection than, say, humdrum, ordinary files. This is crucial because – as headlines about breaches of important data files at large insurers such as Anthem, large retailers such as Target, and even federal government agencies demonstrate – hackers have gotten very good at their jobs.

    (c) The Internet of Things (IoT) was the most hyped technology of 2014 according to Gartner, and it’s easy to see why. Cisco’s recent IoT study suggests that the number of connected devices is expected to grow to 50 billion by 2020, leading to a global economic impact of $10 trillion. Connected devices are set to change the very fabric of the world we live and work in. However, the buzz around gadgets such as connected fridges and smart kettles being developed by consumer goods manufacturers have been a distraction from the IoT’s true potential. Indeed,…

Just as the personal computer enabled new use cases and gave end users new ways to be productive and be entertained, IoT will enable a number of digital improvements to the status quo. All these potential improvements and use cases belong to one of four main uses, much in the way that previous technologies, like the PC, touched all industries.

After all, the technology is essentially putting cookies into physical spaces and bringing many of the same technology we use on the web to the physical world. The tracking, advertising, contextual aware potential of the technology made it a Google no-brainer.

    3 Aug 2015 | 7:22 am
    (Image Credit: iStockPhoto/Peter Burnett) All too often, implementing enterprise mobility is seen as an intimidating mammoth project, causing IT professionals to resort to patchy, expedient solutions at best or to completely ignore the call-for-mobility at worst. Security concerns and compliance constraints along with limited IT staffing and budget serve to further push back any mobility-related initiatives. However, the demand for more flexible working habits is growing globally and across verticals — even traditionally conservative ones like utilities and government. In fact, roughly…

Naturally, enterprise mobility management (EMM) providers are falling over themselves to provide support for the nascent ‘Windows as a Service’ OS straight out of the box.

The survey, which buttonholed 100 CIOs, revealed more than four in five (83%) say ‘cloud sprawl’ makes IT management more complex. Looking at it another way, IT departments simply are not applying the same testing standards to the cloud as they would for in house IT services. One company, in the construction sector, found they had 300 copies of a cloud-based project management tool for only 200 project managers.
