    I’ve become obsessed with the below animated GIF, which I discovered over at Amid Amidi’s Cartoon Brew. Stare at it, and you might be obsessed, too, at least for 30 seconds or so. Blue Zoo It looks like something I might have seen as part of a 3D animation demonstration by a computer scientist when I attended the SIGGRAPH conference back in 1989. But here’s the remarkable thing: It isn’t computer animation. That bear may be made out of polygons, but he isn’t made out of bits. He’s a physical object–or, more precisely, 50 of them.

    Back in 2012, when legendary musician Neil Young started talking about Pono–his effort to build a portable player with an emphasis on audio quality above all else–it wasn’t particularly obvious that the idea had legs in the 21st century.

    We've seen numerous examples of self-healing polymers that allow materials to repair themselves after being damaged. One of the more common approaches involves the use of embedded microcapsules that release a healing agent when damaged.

    How can a battery last forever? As the leading innovator in cost-effective energy storage products, Imergy is stepping in the right direction to make the everlasting battery possible. Imergy utilizes a Vanadium flow battery design, originally thought up at NASA. The popular rechargeable Lithium Ion batteries, used today in most devices, consume its components in a very short time, preventing long term storage, in favor of its small footprint. The Imergy units are typically the size of a refrigerator. Vanadium flow chemistry process allows energy storage and retrieval to be 75% efficient,…

Joe Moreno’s bill for Amazon Web Services is usually about $5 a month. But last Thursday, he learned his AWS credentials had been compromised.

Time and energy devoted to one customer is time and energy lost on another. So why not pull back a bit from your fly-by-night customers and devote more time to your elite customers. Open Forum offers four ways to do this. Start simple, with real small talk.

    15 Apr 2014 | 2:00 pm
    Small business owners are particularly vulnerable to cybertheft, which costs the U.S. economy as much as $140 billion a year. That’s because many don’t have the time or resources to protect themselves properly. “There’s typically nobody managing IT,” explains cybersecurity consultant Christopher Bomar in a recent interview with Tech Page One. Sara Handel of Excella Consulting says even non-technical people can play a role in data-driven decision making. But businesses can’t just rely on software to protect data against attacks.

Presumably the average selling price of wearable items will be a fraction of that of smartphones, meaning the dollar value of the wearables market is even more minuscule compared to the smartphone market. All of which means that wearables, while dramatic and exciting and with huge potential to change people’s lives, are never going to rival smartphones in terms of market size.

    The PC industries doldrums continue yet many seem to be scratching their head as to why. The common answer is to blame tablets. While there is truth to that statement, some important context is still missing from this puzzle. What many don’t initially observe is since about 2007, the PC market, specifically the notebook segment, began to over-index to the consumer segment. Meaning gradually since then, more annual worldwide notebooks sold were to the consumer segment rather than corporate. Note this chart from Benedict Evan’s slide deck Mobile is Eating the World.

    30 Mar 2014 | 1:16 am
    By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) So I was asked to come speak at a Microsoft BizSpark event last week. The topic I chose was how to market your brand in 2014. I know, shocker. The thing is, I genuinely believe that my whole “philosophy” in marketing can be summed up in two words. Of course, you are going to have to watch the entire speech to learn what the two words are. Wait, what do you mean you can fast forward to the end to get the two words and not watch the whole thing?

    In the wake of the serious Heartbleed flaw in OpenSSL, more people are becoming aware of how widely used and important open source encryption tools are, and how their security is too often taken for granted. Some people were already worrying about this back in September last year, when we learned that the NSA had intentionally undermined encryption by weakening standards and introducing backdoors. As Techdirt reported, that led to a call for a security audit of TrueCrypt, a very popular open source disk encryption tool. Fortunately, the Open Crypto Audit Project raised a goodly sum of money…

    Interesting report over at the WSJ noting that some at Google are considering if they should boost the search results for sites that are encrypted as an attempt to encourage more widespread use of encryption. I would be a bit surprised if the company did this, as Google always claims that it's focus is entirely on the quality of the content of sites, and delivering people to what they're looking for. While the search algorithms do take into account things like page load time, it seems like encryption status might not be seen as a real indicator of quality. Still, I hope that Google does…

  • Steve Jobs’ death ignited Samsung’s anti-iPhone marketing fire

    16 Apr 2014 | 4:30 am
    New evidence from the second U.S. Apple vs Samsung patent lawsuit has revealed that Samsung was somewhat afraid of starting a clear, full-fledged anti-iPhone marketing campaign in 2011 – a move which actually proved to be detrimental to Samsung’s success in the mobile business. However, the death of Steve Jobs provided Samsung the “best opportunity to attack iPhone,” according to a highly confidential email exchange between Samsung execs presented as evidence in the trial and obtained by AppleInsider. The email exchange presents a conversation Samsung execs had around the announcement…
  • Mt Gox set to liquidate as court denies rehabilitation

    Mt. Gox, once the world's biggest bitcoin exchange, is likely to be liquidated after a Tokyo court dismissed the company's bid to resuscitate its business, the court-appointed administrator said on Wednesday. CEO Mark Karpeles is also likely to be investigated for liability in the collapse of the Tokyo-based firm, the provisional administrator, lawyer Nobuaki Kobayashi, said in a statement published on the Mt.

    By Pete Sweeney SHANGHAI (Reuters) - BTC China, one of the country's leading digital currency exchanges, has installed China's first bitcoin ATM and launched an online app allowing individuals to buy and sell bitcoins using mobile phones, skirting local banking regulations seen as increasingly hostile to so-called crypto-currencies. But a subsequent crackdown by the People's Bank of China (PBOC) has seen the digital currency sag, changing hands below $530 on Wednesday, according to exchange-tracker CoinDesk.

    Whenever a Steam sale rolls around, we’re sure many gamers get excited at the idea that they can buy games that were too expensive before. Sure some of the deals might be great, but usually it results in gamers spending more than they’d like on titles that they might not have thought of in the first place.Now let’s face it, despite the plethora of titles in our Steam library, how many of them do you actually play? According to a report by Ars Technica, they found that more than a third of the games that have been purchased have never been played, 36.9% to be exact. It is unclear as to…

Now Nokia has a tablet of their own dubbed the Lumia 2520 but it’s hardly the Finnish company’s first and only tablet effort.According to an interview that Finland’s ISTV conducted with Esko Yliruusi, a Nokia tablet prototype from back the day was revealed (pictured above).

    One of the ways case manufacturers can get a jump on the competition is if they’re willing to begin producing cases for phones that haven’t been released yet. This means that the dimensions aren’t official but they are still willing to take the risk if it means that they will be the first on the market to offer up cases and accessories for a brand new device.Now thanks to a recent photo by, a photo of an alleged iPhone 6 case has surfaced and based on the photos, it looks like the rumors could be right when they suggested that the iPhone 6 could see its power/sleep button…

The expansion will introduce a host of new changes and features made to the game, most noticeably an upgrade to the character models which will see new textures and animations.We also expect that Blizzard will also be upgrading some of the graphics used in the new zones and perhaps updating some older ones as well, so with that being said, does this mean that gamers will need to upgrade their computers in order to play the game?

    Portable chargers are cool. I love being able to charge my USB devices on the go, without needing to find an available electrical outlet. I just hook my phone up to my portable charger, put it in my bag, and go. My problem is charging the charger. I always am forgetting to plug it in when I get home, which means it’s all too often a glorified paperweight when I need it most. But what if the wind took care of charging the charger?

    When it comes to external battery packs, there tends to be a conundrum of capacity versus bulk. That is, unless you don’t mind carrying around bricks all day. Even so, most of the best batteries share similar shapes: a flask, over-sized deck of cards, or half a can of spam. No matter the flavor, they all tend to worm their way down to the bottom of bags. It helps to have pockets, unless you don’t.

    John P. Mello Jr.
    15 Apr 2014 | 4:03 pm
    After an 18-month lull, Windows Phone took a step closer to an upgrade on Monday as Microsoft released version 8.1 of the OS to developers. Unlike most developer versions of software, however, consumers can download and run the latest edition of Windows Phone on their mobile device -- as long as they're willing to void its warranty until their carrier OKs the upgrade. Although developers and brave consumers can get their hands on Windows Phone 8.1 this week, it will be a few months before its fortunes in the market can be determined.

    15 Apr 2014 | 2:41 pm
    A total lunar eclipse in the early hours of Tuesday gave viewers in parts of the world a rare glimpse of what's sometimes called a "blood moon," due to the reddish hue it takes on as a result of dust in the atmosphere. Beginning at about 1:55 AM EDT on April 15, the eclipse lasted roughly three and a half hours -- peaking at 3:45 a.m. EDT -- and was visible in North America, South America and Australia, with partial visibility in parts of Asia, Africa and Europe. Lunar eclipses last much longer than solar eclipses do and are safe to view.

    15 Apr 2014 | 1:50 pm
    Google Glass, which has been the focus of considerable controversy, went on sale Tuesday -- for one day only -- at $1,500, with Android KitKat and new features that include improved battery life, photo bundles, photo replies and voice command sorting. However, one feature -- video calling -- has been eliminated because fewer than 10 percent of Explorer beta users employed it. "Today we hope to bring even more Explorers into the program to reflect an even more diverse group of people," said Google spokesperson Chris Dale.
  • Twitter Tries to Defuse Turkey Controversy

    15 Apr 2014 | 10:39 am
    Twitter has agreed to close some accounts in Turkey, but the two sides are still at loggerheads over allegations of tax evasion and whether or not Twitter must maintain a physical presence in the country. Twitter VP of Global Public Policy Colin Crowell led a delegation of sorts to address the country's multifaceted grievances with the social media site. Twitter was banned in Turkey in March. Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan's administration followed that up with claims that the company was evading taxes and refusing to heed to Turkish law.

    15 Apr 2014 | 7:07 am
    While the tech world has gone mobile, there's one key tool that hasn't changed in years: the printer. Most printers are still big, bulky and boring. They do a job, and they stay put. Right where you left them -- at home or in the office. If a new crowdsourced Kickstarter project gets the funding it needs, mobile workers will be able to print most anywhere -- even coffee shops. The tool? A robot printer. ZUta Labs has reimagined the printer into an apple-sized device that can drive over a sheet of paper and print along the way.

    While Apple is still quoting 4-6 week delivery times for new Mac Pro orders, those who need one sooner should know that Amazon has both stock configurations ready to ship immediately.

    Apple may be prepping the 2014 iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display models to include Touch ID, among other new additions. According to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the prediction is that we'll see an expected chip bump with the Apple A8 processor, rear iSight camera resolution increased to 8MP, and the aforementioned Touch ID fingerprint recognition security feature in both the iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display. Kuo also believes that this year's iPads will launch earlier than they did last year, which would imply that they should arrive sooner than November.

    Nintendo has announced the Super Smash Bros. is coming to the Nintendo 3DS this summer, and Wii U later this winter. Both versions will heavily promote online play with friends through Nintendo's Miiverse, as well as through random matches with other players.

  • HBO renews Game of Thrones for two more seasons

    Andru Edwards
    9 Apr 2014 | 2:40 pm
    HBO has announced that it's ordered two additional seasons of Game of Thrones, which just started its fourth season this past Sunday. It makes sense, as the show was recently recognized as the most torrented television show out there, proving its popularity. Even with the rampant piracy, the season 3 finale was seen by over 5 million people. If you didn't realize, Game of Thrones is based on A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin. It's comprised of five books, which two more to come. This means that Game of Thrones producers have plenty of content to pull from. In fact, Game…

  • What is the Heartbleed Bug all about? Be safe, Change your Password.

    10 Apr 2014 | 1:56 am
    This Bug is in the OpenSSL’s implementation of the TLS/DTLS (transport layer security protocols) heartbeat extension (RFC6520); and hence the name Heartbleed bug. This bug allows anyone on the Internet to read the memory of the systems protected by the vulnerable versions of the OpenSSL software. This compromises the secret keys used to identify the service providers and to encrypt the traffic, the names and passwords of the users and the actual content. This allows attackers to eavesdrop on communications, steal data directly from the services and users and to impersonate services and…

In retrospective this is something that I should have done six months ago when Wayan first brought this up.

    While the One Laptop Per Child Foundation, the Boston branch of our favorite laptop project is dead, the OLPC Association, the Miami-based group focused on XO sales, jumped to life yesterday and pronounced its viability. Here is Giulia D'Amico, Vice President of Business Development, on their present and future: OLPC's mission to empower the world's children through education is far from over. OLPC is thriving and making more inroads at bringing education to those who can't easily access it. OLPC recently formed a strategic alliance with the Zamora Teran family through many of their…

    11 Mar 2014 | 5:00 am
    Here is a question for you: 8 years on, would you recommend anyone start a new deployment with XO-1 laptops? With the hardware now long past its life expectancy, spare parts hard to find, and zero support from the One Laptop Per Child organization, its time to face reality. The XO-1 laptop is history. Sadly, so is Sugar. Once the flagship of OLPC's creativity in redrawing the human-computer interaction, few are coding for it and new XO variants are mostly Android/Gnome+Fedora dual boots. Finally, OLPC Boston is completely gone. No staff, no consultants, not even a physical office. Nicholas…

I have written a PhD thesis about OLPC, Akila and the school which I defended at Aarhus University in Denmark on the 27th of February: There is, amongst others, a chapter describing the theories and debates around OLPC, there is one investigating how the initiative rose to fame and there are several more specific investigations of the laptops at Akila's school (e.g. chapters 5 and 6).

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

    Julian Sanchez: I’m perfectly open to the notion that it may be wise and justifiable to extent the protections of anti-discrimination law to groups not currently covered—but I also wish supporters of such reforms would acknowledge that there’s a genuine impingement on associational freedom involved in such extensions, and that no simple sweeping principle can obviate the need for a close examination of the tradeoffs in each case.

    Sean Penn: The Oscar-winning actor and political activist accused the US media of smearing Venezuela’s socialist president and called for journalists to be punished. “Every day, this elected leader is called a dictator here, and we just accept it, and accept it. And this is mainstream media. There should be a bar by which one goes to prison for these kinds of lies.” Not only does Sean Penn defend authoritarianism, but he suggests that critics should be imprisoned for calling Hugo Chavez a dictator.

    Earlier today, the FTC announced the terms of its settlement with the free torch app “Brightest Flashlight”, which had surreptitiously collected real-time location data of its users and sold to advertisers. Although Android doesn’t allow you to modify the permissions that an installed app has, Google does display the permissions that an app is requesting before you install the app. A privacy breach like the “Brightest Flashlight” incident can easily be avoided by paying attention to the permissions that an app requests. For example, there is no valid reason for a torch app to access…

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…

    Lots of people use a wireless Bluetooth keyboard to type on their MacBook laptops, on their iPads, on their televisions (via Apple TV) and on their iPhones.

    Being able to breath underwater, à la Aquaman, sounds like a made-up superpower. But it needn’t remain the stuff of pure science fiction. After all, fish manage to breath underwater. And some, like the lungfish, are adept at breathing air too. Theoretically, for a human to breath underwater all that’s required would be some sort of gill-like system. Enter Jeabyun Yeon, a student at the Samsung Art And Design Institute, who thinks he’s come up with exactly that. Dubbed the Triton Oxygen Respirator, Yeon’s design features miniature artificial gills extending out from a…

    Microsoft's latest phone OS, version 8.1, was released yesterday and reportedly had some tools IT should love, which would be great if people were buying Windows phones in large numbers, but they're not. But Microsoft has been smart enough to make these management tools work across platforms and they could win IT hearts and minds --even if users continue for the most part to reject Windows phones. And a win's a win, right? Photo Credit: Microsoft. All rights reserved.

    Cover for my latest submission to WeeklyBeats 2014. Wanted to go for an atmospheric sound again, something more ambient. Maybe this worked. Maybe not, but it came out as a complete unit. Also tried sticking to a small ‘band’. In this case used instruments from SampleTank: Blue Phaser electric piano, Xpander Phat synth pad, Cosmic Pad synth pad, and Minimoog echo 2 synth lead. Also brought in some Abstract Atmosphere 50 from Garageband — which I used as my DAW. Image is from something I took out the window a bunch of years ago.

    A couple of YouTube video makers are back at it again, driving kids crazy by putting an old piece of technology in front of them and recording their reactions. This time, the Sony Walkman, the portable casette player that debuted in the late 1970s and eventually gave way to digital music players like the iPod. The kids poke and prod the devices, and nope, it's not a walkie-talkie, as one young man...

    15 Apr 2014 | 4:04 pm
    If you need a new heatsink and you are on a budget, make sure you don't miss our evaluation of the Enermax ETS-N30 CPU cooler. We tend to focus on "high end" CPU cooling when we do reviews, but today we have something a bit different. Enermax, known world wide for its overall excellent power supplies, steps foot in the CPU cooling ring with a contender that is very easy on your wallet, weighing in at less than $25. We still have high expectations though! Comments
  • 85,000 Oculus Rift Dev Kits Sold

    15 Apr 2014 | 4:04 pm
    Oculus Rift has sold a total of 85,000 dev kits. That means they only need to sell about six million more kits before Facebook makes their money back off the company. The company revealed the figures to TechCrunch and broke them down into 60,000 sales or the original DK1 and 25,000 sales of the DK2 that went on sale on March 19. The kit currently costs $350. In February Oculus VR was forced to halt production of the headsets after it struggled to source some of the key components. Comments

  • Winklevoss: Bitcoin Payment System Worth $400B

    15 Apr 2014 | 2:04 pm
    Hey, did you guys know that the bitcoin payment system is worth $400 billion? Who told me that? Why, the Winklevoss twins did! That would make bitcoins worth about $32,000 each. The most widely known estimate of its intrinsic value is $400 billion, made November 2013, by the Winklevoss twins Cameron and Tyler at the "New York Times" Dealbook Conference. At that valuation, Bitcoin would be worth 70 times its current value of $5.7 billion. That's based on an April 8, 2014 price of $453 per coin for the 12,620,475 bitcoins in circulation. Clearly, there's a long way to go to reach $400…

    28 Mar 2014 | 2:05 pm
    Interesting 2 paragraphs from Fred Wilson's blog, talking about "what's next": But the roadmap has been clear for the past seven years (maybe longer). The next thing was mobile. Mobile is now the last thing. And all of these big tech companies are looking for the next thing to make sure they don’t miss it.. And they will pay real money (to you and me) for a call option on the next thing. It isn’t clear if the next thing is virtual reality, the internet of things, drones, machine learning, or something else. Larry doesn’t know. Zuck doesn’t know. I don’t know. But the race is on to…

    King Digital stock price fall on IPO day courtesy Yahoo Finance It was no great surprise to us that the makers of Candy Crush, King Digital Entertainment Plc , had a less than illustrious IPO. As we wrote in February, it was high time to run for the IPO gate before it closed on them, and they have. Good luck to them, they now have $500m in the bank now, a useful cushion against the slings and arrows of outrageous future misfortune. The c £8.5bn valuation (now c $7bn) will not be quite so easy to live with, I suspect. But nothing changes our analysis since February, this stock is a still very…

Facebook has bought the virtual reality technology firm Oculus VR for $2bn [£1.2bn], it announced on Tuesday.

A detailed company statement said that Facebook recognised how Oculus had built a solid following among game…
  • So long Archie and Veronica - the Birth of the Web killed you

    12 Mar 2014 | 9:32 am
    Everybody loved Archie & Veronica before 1993 Today is the 25th "birthday of the Web", although strictly speaking that was the first proposal submitted, a memetic sperm if you like. The actual thing only came out in any recognisable form about 4 years later in 1991. For me it arrived 5 years after it's birth. It was summer 1994, the day I downloaded the newly released NCSA Mosaic software on Windows (It was already out on UNIX, but I didn't have a UNIX tin anymore). Suddenly, all that stuff I'd been doing before was easy (FTP, Gopher et al). The thing about Mosaic was it was easy to use,…

  • Find The Big Fib In The NSA's Lack Of Concern For Foreigners

    Becky Akers
    16 Apr 2014 | 5:23 am
    Usually, the NSA's whoppers are so ham-fisted everyone knows them for falsehoods. And if there's any question, you can usually rely on the fact that when the agency's lips move, it's stretching the truth so far that it's as good as a lie. But from the start of Snowden's revelations, one of the NSA's tall tales has differed vastly from the others. It's so subtle and ubiquitous, such a consummate Big Lie, that even the surveillance-state's fiercest critics haven't spotted it. Can you? Let's play Find the Fib with this testimony to Congress last June from Deputy Attorney General James Cole…

In today's announcement, earthquakes, terrorist attacks, and the Boston Marathon bombings were mentioned as scenarios in which LEEDIR could help law enforcement respond to disasters or large-scale public security threats.

  • First Phase Of Security Audit Finds Vulnerabilities But No Backdoors In TrueCrypt Encryption Software

    Glyn Moody
    16 Apr 2014 | 12:11 am
    In the wake of the serious Heartbleed flaw in OpenSSL, more people are becoming aware of how widely used and important open source encryption tools are, and how their security is too often taken for granted. Some people were already worrying about this back in September last year, when we learned that the NSA had intentionally undermined encryption by weakening standards and introducing backdoors. As Techdirt reported, that led to a call for a security audit of TrueCrypt, a very popular open source disk encryption tool. Fortunately, the Open Crypto Audit Project raised a goodly sum of money…
  • Google May Consider Giving A Boost To Encrypted Sites

    15 Apr 2014 | 8:05 pm
    Interesting report over at the WSJ noting that some at Google are considering if they should boost the search results for sites that are encrypted as an attempt to encourage more widespread use of encryption. I would be a bit surprised if the company did this, as Google always claims that it's focus is entirely on the quality of the content of sites, and delivering people to what they're looking for. While the search algorithms do take into account things like page load time, it seems like encryption status might not be seen as a real indicator of quality. Still, I hope that Google does…
  • DailyDirt: Aircraft That Stay In The Sky For Days (Or Longer)

    Michael Ho

    Most folks don't really like flying for more than a few hours at a time, so it's not really a problem for a lot of people that most planes aren't even capable of flights lasting longer than day. (Zeppelins can fly for weeks at a time, but those ships haven't been flying regularly for a while.) Autonomous drones have been making some really long flights recently, and there may be more uses for aircraft that can stay up in the air for long periods of time. Here are just a few examples. Google has acquired Titan Aerospace for its solar-powered drone technology that can act as "atmospheric…

Instead, the next generation Beats Tour, sports a much more manageable v-curve design for smaller, as well as larger ears. The overall look of the new Tour has also changed quite dramatically. This time around it’s rocking a much more subtle design right down to the housing. While some may complain that the plastic construction may leave it more…

    Psst, there’s already a 4k laptop up and running, and it’s going to be available as soon as next week. Pass it on. The Toshiba P55t manages the feat, thanks to a 3840 x 2160 15.6” TruBrite touchscreen IPS display. That makes the P55t the first 4k laptop on the market, though by no means will it be the last. It’s also the first laptop to receive Technicolor Color certification. Of course, that incredible display (282 ppi!) needs proper hardware to back it up. Toshiba’s checked that off their list, thanks to a Haswell Intel core i7 processor, up to 16 GB of 1600…

So, what’s Skullcandy’s take? They’re definitely not reinventing the (feminine) wheel – all nine models in the new line look just like any other pair of headphones or earphones.

  • Popcorn Time is Netflix Type Movie Streaming for Pirates

    It has been argued, and quite successfully, that piracy can be fought back by making content readily available to paying customers. Services such as Netflix, Amazon Instant Video and Hulu are based on this very model and appears to be largely successful, both in business and in cutting down piracy so much that BitTorrent traffic has been reduced in North America to only 7.4% from 31% five years ago, while Netflix now accounts for nearly one-third of total internet traffic in the continent. This is all great if you live in the U.S. But what if you don’t? Movie streaming through the…

Each one has its merits and demerits. Embedding the original image allows the visitor of the blog or website or the intended recipient to view the full image without any further action. However, if the images are large like those from a digital camera with a several megapixel sensor, it might be…

  • How To Hide Spam Links In Blogger Comments

    Paul Crowe’s tutorial from Spice Up Your Blog will help show you how to automatically hide spam links in your blog comments. It removes any spammy links from future AND past comments, which will prove especially convenient when you’re too busy to sift through your comments one by one (like I do). There are two ways to do this. 1. CSS Paul’s first tactic is to use a small piece of CSS that will completely remove links in the comments. This removes the anchor text (link included) while retaining the rest of the comment. 2. jQuery The second technique involves placing a small…

However, it is only recently that B2B companies have begun to realize the importance of a properly documented content strategy.

    16 Apr 2014 | 2:06 am
    As it turns out, Nokia developed an internet tablet all the way back in 2001. It was called the Nokia M510, several thousand units were made, and it was functional. Sadly, market research showed that consumers were not yet ready for a device like this, and so the project was cancelled. It had a 800x600 display, ran EPOC (Symbian), and sported wifi. The stories are in Finnish, and since I don't speak Finnish, I had to rely on Google Translate (as a translator, this made me feel dirty). Now that Nokia's devices division is essentially dead, it wouldn't surprise me to see more of these stories…

The 0.1 version bump, chosen to align the phone platform with its desktop sibling, belies the true nature of this upgrade. It is substantial, and makes Windows Phone tremendously better.

    From a 2006 (pre-iPhone) Android specification document: Touchscreens will not be supported: the Product was designed with the presence of discrete physical buttons as an assumption. However, there is nothing fundamental in the Product's architecture that prevents the support of touchscreens in the future. The same document, but a few versions later, from 2007 (post-iPhone): A touchscreen for finger-based navigation - including multi-touch capabilites - is required.

    The U.S. National Security Agency knew for at least two years about a flaw in the way that many websites send sensitive information, now dubbed the Heartbleed bug, and regularly used it to gather critical intelligence, two people familiar with the matter said. The NSA's decision to keep the bug secret in pursuit of national security interests threatens to renew the rancorous debate over the role of the government’s top computer experts. I'm so surprised. Update: NSA denies.
  • The state of in-car UX

    11 Apr 2014 | 1:09 pm
    There's certainly some hope on the horizon with Apple and Google, though just how good these systems will be remains to be seen. One thing is clear, though: the current state of all in-car experiences is incredibly bad. For those manufacturers looking to go it alone, I don't expect much. In-car software is absolutely horrifying and crazy complex. A good friend of mine regularly drives brand new and super-expensive cars (in the hundreds of thousands of euros category), and even in those cars, the user interfaces are just terrible. There's a lot of room for improvement and disruption here.

    With the increased penetration of internet in our everyday life, issues with online privacy and security are becoming a key concern. The data that we input through the internet is not as secure as we hope it to be. VPN creates a virtual link or an Internet tunnel that connects two physical networks in separate locations and is accessible to all users. Security is guaranteed as the data sent through the tunnel is encrypted – hence the term is “private.” This security feature guarantees that there is no possible malicious interception by third party, such as hacking or espionage. And the…

    With my bicycling friend, John Darwin, who also enjoys riding his bike in-town, I often head out on a Sunday afternoon looking for things I’ve never seen in Nashville. These days, that likely means a new real estate development or some area of town I’ve heard about, but have never seen. As the NCAA Women’s Basketball Final Four is in Nashville now (the championship game is Tuesday night, April 8), we decided to include a ride by the area of downtown where events are being staged. While that was out of the usual, the other things I ran across made me feel like I was…

    Starting over ten years ago, a long-running joke on this blog has been my fascination with (and mockery of) the recurring need inventors (including those who work for huge technology companies) have to re-invent the Cuecat. For those who don’t recognize the term Cuecat as the punchline of a joke, I suggest a rapid glance at its Wikipedia entry and the wonderful one-liner by the late Debbie Barham, the comic and humor writer who said the Cuecat “fails to solve a problem which never existed.” A couple of years ago, I referred to the repetitive reinvention of the Cuecat as the…

In it, I wrote: Say, you have an interest in bicycling and you spend a few minutes on a Saturday morning visiting some online retailers to see what they have related to something you’re thinking about getting. Later, you notice that everywhere you go on the internet you see ads that look like the ad below. That’s advertising retargeting. I believe good advertising is a good thing. Good advertising can help us discover things we might otherwise miss. And the revenue from advertising helps keep lots of content…

However, I wanted to get on the record that the limited run (scheduled to close at the end of June) of the drama All the Way, starring Bryan Cranston, is a great show to see, if: (1) You’ve become a big fan of Bryan Cranston via Breaking Bad and would like to see him do something that, while impressive and intense, is totally devoid of any hint of Walter White.

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

    I have been thinking a lot about simplifying my life recently. I started a stellar new job four months ago and it felt like a great time to change other parts of my life. I used to be a slave to my startups. If I wasn't working, I had a perpetual feeling of guilt that I should be working. That lead to many all-nighters and eventually landed me in the hospital last year after fainting twice from fever and dehydration. That reads more like an accolade to the workaholic culture of Silicon Valley, which joyously consumes posts like how Marissa Mayer worked 130 hours per week. It was most…

  • Better Ways to Embed Tables and Spreadsheets in Web Pages

    Amit Agarwal
    16 Apr 2014 | 1:00 am
    It is easy to embed tabular data in  web pages. You can either use the standard <table> HTML tag or you can input the tabular data in a spreadsheet — like Excel Online or Google Spreadsheets — and embed the sheet in your web pages. HTML tables are easy while spreadsheet based tables allow better formatting and complex layouts – like nested tables within a table – without fiddling with the code. Here are the different ways by which you can embed tables in your website and their pros and cons.

    LinkedIn is trying to reinvent itself as a social network for professionals and they are now sending way too many email notifications that one never really asked for. Whether it’s your colleague’s birthday, someone just completed two years at their current job or someone you know just joined LinkedIn – there’s a notification for everything. The worst part is that LinkedIn offers no one-click button for quickly and easily unsubscribing from all these email notification in one go.

    The computer keyboard creates “dumb” punctuation marks that may not be acceptable in printed work but are common on web pages. It outputs straight quotation marks (") while your writing may require curly quotes.

  • How to Force the Browser to Remember the Username and Password

    Amit Agarwal
    4 Apr 2014 | 11:41 am
    When you enter your username and password to log into a website, Google Chrome will prompt you to remember the password. If you accept, Chrome saves the password internally and the next time you open that site, it will auto-fill the username and password fields for you. The password-saving feature is available in all modern browsers but some websites, maybe for security reasons, disable this option for their login forms. For instance, the PayPal website doesn’t allow the browser to remember your password and thus you are forced to enter the password every time you open PayPal. Some…

    16 Apr 2014 | 3:00 am
    When Linksys first showed me a WRT1900AC prototype last year, I thought to myself, wow: I hope its performance lives up to its audacious looks. The good news is that it does—for the most part. In fact, it’s the fastest router I’ve ever tested. The bad news is that its $280 MSRP marks it as the most expensive router I’ve ever tested (Linksys launched the router with a $250 sale price). The Linksys WRT1900AC looks like an overstuffed Linksys WRT54G, and it’s sure to stir feelings of nostalgia within anyone familiar with that 2002 classic.

  • Programming Languages and the Importance of ODBC

    Dion Picco
    28 Mar 2014 | 11:40 am
    A few weeks back a colleague and I were driving through Seattle, and we began to debate the reach of ODBC as a key data standard.  His perspective was that ODBC was really a C/C++ technology, and that as people have largely moved to other programming languages, the importance of ODBC has declined as well.  Well, I didn’t buy that argument but needed to do some research before I could refute him.  As I mainly tinker with iOS development these days, my awareness of what is happening in the programming world at large is well out-of-date.  Well, it didn’t take long to dig up some…

Brands have rushed to provide value (optimally) or promotions (typically) on every new communication platform, all of which are increasingly accessed through mobile devices, making customers’ relationships with brands solely a collection of micro-experiences. This is the “appification” of brand value. For decades, the key question has been “how valuable is the brand?” The key question moving forward is “how valuable are your apps?” Apple, of course, started this trend with the introduction of the first iPhone, but distilling entire companies…

When Facebook launched Facebook Exchange (FBX) last September, it was an important day in the history of online advertising.  Facebook accounts for some 25 percent of U.S. display inventory on the web. Now that inventory can be purchased with real-time bidding (RTB), and marketers can target their most valuable customers with a display ad on Facebook. But, though it didn’t receive as much attention as the launch of FBX, Facebook made another critical move in December when it allowed advertisers to target customers based on what they searched…

    Today I’m taking a look at the Seagate Backup Plus FAST 4 TB portable hard drive. However, referring to it as a hard drive is a bit misleading, as the Backup Plus FAST is actually two 2 TB 2.5” drives in a RAID 0 array. This contributes to the speeds the drives can provide, as a striped RAID 0 array improves performance to up to double of what a single drive would be capable of. The drive comes in basic packaging, which includes a quick-start guide, an 18” USB 3.0 cable, and a USB 3.0 Y cable, which has two USB connectors: one for power and one for data.

    Held in the New York City-sized, yet younger than many of us, Shenzhen metropolis, the last weeks’ IDF provided quite a number of announcements which you can anyway read on the usual press release reprinting web sites. Here’s something that you might not find that easily, though… During my walkabout IDF Shenzhen tours, I had a chat with one high end OEM who was twice evaluating a 2-in-1 very high end LTE enabled Haswell ultrabook & tablet combo device with a built-in full LTE capability and the integrated pop-up SIM card slot. After all, if having a local LTE SIM card,…

    Terry White
    6 Apr 2014 | 9:11 pm
    It’s been a while since I looked at Bluetooth headsets. After all my Jawbone ICON has been working just fine. However, I ordered the new 2014 Era by Jawbone because I thought I had lost my older model. I keep my Jawbone along with a couple of misc. adapters and wired Apple EarPods in a small vinyl pouch that I carry in my pocket. That pouch went missing for a week.  I couldn’t find it in all the usual spots that I normally leave it or drop it in. I figured that it was gone for good and that I had to replace the contents. I ordered the NEW 2014 Era by Jawbone. Although I hate…

  • Why I switched back to Pandora Radio from iTunes Radio

    Terry White
    27 Mar 2014 | 9:16 am
    I really wanted to like iTunes Radio for two simple reasons. The first is that it’s integrated into all my iOS devices and iTunes and that just makes it easier to enjoy and control. The second reason was that since I’m already paying for iTunes Match $25/year (that I absolutely love), iTunes Radio is delivered to me Ad free. Yes I had high hopes that I would be able to drop my Pandora Radio subscription (yes I hate ads), and just use iTunes Radio, however I just resubscribed to Pandora Radio ($3.99/month, which ironically bills through my iTunes account). Why go back? I went back…

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

  • Obstacles That Keeps Us From Marketing

    Alex Goldfayn
    14 Apr 2014 | 9:14 pm
    I define marketing as consistently communicating your value to people who can buy from you. Here are the obstacles that keep us from doing so: 1. Fear: Of failing; of offending; of rejection. This is the single greatest impediment to marketing action. 2. Perfection: You have many chances to make good impressions. Take action when your marketing is good enough. Only you will know it’s not perfect. 3. Procrastination: Responding to urgent issues (fires) is reactive and keeps a lot of organizations, big and small, from doing the good work of communicating with buyers proactively.

    I received a lot of feedback from you regarding last week’s newsletter on the difference between knowing what to do and doing it (it’s discipline). A few of you said it was the best Evangelist Marketing Minute ever. So I spent some time last week defining the elements that go into this discipline: On-demand awareness: You may know what to do after you read an article, or attend a workshop, but can you recall it when it’s necessary? The information must be easily available, on paper, or in your head. Impactful trigger: The reason to begin doing what you know must be…
  • The Difference Between Knowing & Doing

    Alex Goldfayn
    31 Mar 2014 | 8:57 am
    What’s the difference between knowing what to do, and actually doing it? You probably know what to do already. For example, we know that testimonials and referrals are nearly guaranteed ways to grow our revenue, but do we ask for them enough? As a friend and colleague said recently, “If we all did what we know to be the right thing, we would all have perfect bodies.” And none of us would work too much! As the author, consultant and Harvard professor David Maister once said at a small, private workshop of his that I attended, “You all know what to do. The difference…
  • The Best Marketing Is Simple

    Alex Goldfayn
    24 Mar 2014 | 8:56 am
    If you request two referrals per week and hit a 50 percent success rate (which is less than the results my two-step referral process creates for clients), you’ll get 50 new, very warm prospects to have sales conversations with. Close a third of those, and you have 16 new customers, without doing very much work at all. Ask your staff to do the same, and you’ll leverage the power of exponential marketing effort and growth. If you add the “Did You Know” question (“did you know we also do x, y, or z?”) to most of your conversations with customers and…
  • The Revenue Myth

    Alex Goldfayn
    17 Mar 2014 | 8:02 am
    Here are some common misconceptions about revenue growth, and my take on each: Revenue growth depends on sales effort. Perhaps, in the end. But it’s marketing effort, which is one-to-many, that allows interested prospects to volunteer themselves to your sales function. If you want to grow sales quickly, ironically, marketing will get you there faster than sales alone. Revenue growth demands heavy time investment. Not true. My average client grows 15 to 20 percent in their first year with me. They execute simple activities in 15 minutes per day, or less. A carefully-conducted…

    In the spring of 2003, 4-year-old Colton Burpo underwent an emergency appendectomy. Over the next few months, following the surgery, Colton slowly tells his family of his miraculous out-of-body experience. Colton revealed that he left his body, during the operation, and flew to Heaven. He described the people he met, including Jesus, and was able to tell his family what they were doing in the hospital while he was unconscious. His amazing story was written in a nest-selling book titled Heaven is For Real, narrated by Colton’s minister father Todd Burpo, published in 2010. The book is…

  • Pierce Brosnan Disses His Performances as James Bond

    Pierce Brosnan doesn’t seem to have a very high opinion of his performances as James Bond. Brosnan, 60, played the iconic role in four films from 1995 to 2002, but he told the Telegraph that watching his performances is unbearable. “It’s just never good enough,” he said. “It’s a horrible feeling.” The Remington Steele actor said his feelings stem from the pressure of following in Roger Moore’s and Sean Connery’s footsteps and the insecurities he harbored about playing the role. “I felt I was caught in a time warp between Roger and Sean,”…

    Tragic events should inspire people to show empathy for the affected victims with words of support and acts of kindness. Unfortunately, some would prefer to use these horrible incidents to draw all the wrong kinds of attention to themselves. Case and point is the man that Boston police arrested on Tuesday evening. The suspect had been seen walking barefoot in the rain carrying a backpack. When stopped by police, he admitted the contents of the bag included a rice cooker. He is also thought to have dropped off a second backpack that had been found. While his identity hasn’t been…

Baby Ilias, a male of the endangered wild Bactrian or Camelus bactrianus ferus species, was born on Apr. 9 to its 8-year-old mother Iris. Zookeepers waited until Tuesday to present Baby Ilias to the public so as to allow time for him to first bond with his mother. “When he was born there were problems, the baby was looking for milk from the mother, but as this was her first baby she had no experience,” said Zoltan Hanga, a spokesperson for…

    Android has come a long way from the days of Android 1.6. There have been changes in the UI, app collection has grown exponentially and the OS is able to do so much more than it did.

The original Macintosh I did for personal computers, iPod did that for portable music players, the examples are a plenty. However, one company that has been synonymous with coming up with category defining products has been Apple and they certainly did so with the iPad, a product or a category of super portable touchscreen devices that many thought had absolutely no place nor the demand in the market.

However, thanks to several distractions such as video snips, ads and other suggested links, concentrating on just the text that you wish to read becomes bit of a challenge and daunting. Apple has added a Reading mode on Safari which is pretty useful for reading just text. However, if you are on Chrome and Firefox, then the alternate to that is Fokus.

    This past Monday can go down within the history of the internet forever, since that was the day once the world came to understand of the existence of the crucial security flaw within the OpenSSL library – a bug that allowed attackers to take advantage of any secure system and collect up to 64k of otherwise-considered-secure data from any server using the vulnerable SSL protocol; a bug that was dubbed Heartbleed.

      Last week, I attended the Newspaper Association of America’s MXC conference in Denver. We were to focus on the publishers’ use of data. A hot topic that sometimes becomes overly broad and leads to unrealistic expectations. Here are some key points I made.    For any digital publisher, relying on data is no longer an option nor a luxury. It has become a necessity. Each passing quarter confirms the demise of digital advertising: yields continues to fall, programmatic buying (most often operated by large third party players) takes over and continues to fuel deflation.

  • 60 Spectacular Examples of Long Exposure Photography

    Long exposure photography involves a long-duration shutter speed. Shutter speed is the length of time your camera’s shutter is open while taking a photo. While you have the shutter open, light hits the film or image sensor. Depending on how long you have your shutter open, the difference can have a dramatic impact on your photo. Let’s say you’re taking an image of a waterfall. A shutter speed of 1 second will be completely different from 1/800 of a second. A shutter speed of 1 second will look like the water is smoothly flowing, making it appear blurry. A shutter speed…

  • ICD 10 Implementation Delayed Until 2015

    Julie Clements
    14 Apr 2014 | 1:13 am
    For the last six months, there was a big push for ICD-10. However, the implementation of ICD-10 has now been delayed until October 1, 2015. The news is a big relief for many healthcare providers who were not ready to implement the new coding standards. On March 31, the US Senate approved H.R. 4302, the legislation which delays the ICD-10 implementation deadline by one year to October 1, 2015. The Senate voted 64-35 to pass the bill. President Barack Obama has signed into law “doc fix” legislation (HR 4302) to delay scheduled cuts to Medicare physician reimbursement rates. Along…

    11 Apr 2014 | 1:25 am
    The 2012-2013 flu season was quite harsh with 700 cases of flu reported at Boston and led to the declaration of public-health emergency there. The 2014 FluView report published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) indicated that the influenza activity decreased during week 8 (February 16-22), but remained prominent in the United States. However, researchers from Columbia University and the University of Cologne figured out a formula to predict the evolution of influenza for the next year as per a study published in Nature, an international weekly journal of science.

  • Obesity Rates of American Children Plummeted to 43%, Says the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)

    7 Apr 2014 | 10:39 pm
    As per the press release published in February 2014 by CDC, obesity prevalence among U.S. children aged 2 to 5 years dropped from about 14 percent in 2003-2004 to over 8 percent in 2011-2012 which points to a decline of 43 percent. The rates were computed on the basis of CDC’s National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) data. The CDC director said that this report came upon the heels of previous CDC data that showed a significant decrease in obesity prevalence among low-income children in the age group 2 to 4 years, who had been participating in federal nutrition programs.
  • Crucial Documentation Elements for Coding Traumatic Fractures in ICD-10

    Natalie Tornese
    3 Apr 2014 | 11:27 pm
    Orthopedic practices face the challenge of inappropriate use of codes labeled ‘unspecified’ while coding traumatic fractures for ICD-10, since this medical coding system differentiates traumatic fractures from pathological fractures. The American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) has already insisted that the healthcare practitioners should focus on their documentation to identify the gaps that need to be filled before the ICD-10 implementation on October 1, 2014. In such a scenario, it is quite imperative for orthopedic practices to understand the ICD-10…

The vast choice of mobile devices available and ease of use of such devices has radically changed the way in which we all interact with technology by moving it as something that most of the population use every day rather than it being something that you had to use in the office or…

ConfigMgr 2012 security is a very broad topic, so to be clear I’m only talking about some core concepts that apply to the SCCM console, and to what ConfigMgr administrators can do with it (or equivalent solutions, such as PowerShell…

  • Toy Store (NaPoWriMo Day 4 Poem 5)

    4 Apr 2014 | 9:21 pm
    They are not going to come to life, they can not, you keep telling yourself - but they will, and this will be no Toy Story affair… there can not be an answer for every stare that peers into your soul tonight-    ”Just open a Toy Store, that might     bring out the best in you!” So they said, your friends, (who could never know the dread-eyed demands  made by these devils reincarnated in stuffed, plasticised glory) who will find you some day, a scatterbox of emotions after a business meeting with toys alone – about who will sell and who will be left weeping - and doubtless they…
  • Eyed (NaPoWriMo Day 4 Poem 4)

    4 Apr 2014 | 9:20 pm
    Monitors stare, phones glaze over, the technology used to watch reversing itself, twisting – almost alive – in your direction, and you feel a sort of chill, thrill, spine-shocking sensation rattle through your fingertips. The eyes and ‘i’s inside the CRTs, MP3s, LCDs and our TVs switch places with yourself now, ensuring that you are on the other side of the display. Quick… wait for your User to weigh their attention back to you – but – but no use, they have turned away to cheat on you with the laptop, and spy on their other technofiles with their Zeus of a device they call a…

  • Star Wars Indoors (NaPoWriMo Day 4 Poem 3)

    4 Apr 2014 | 9:17 pm
    Today, the Oval Office is closed. 10 Downing Street has declared intergalactic war against Naboo (formerly known as the Republic of Cameroon). Every Prime Minister, President, Supreme Leader, Head of State, Chief Executive and Premier has been assigned a role. George Lucas stands by to oversee (though the rights now belong to Disney) the process of finalising the cast. Our world has become its own insular Death Star with rebel bases planted everywhere. But now, this metaphor has become literal for today only. Every PC springs into life, waiting for the signal. The first blaster is fired.
  • Spoke Central (NaPoWriMo Day 4 Poem 2)

    4 Apr 2014 | 9:15 pm
    The road hisses at tires grating    along its surface     digging in, setting grooves         against gravel in a street-play             knowing only this sound, this routine.                 Material meant for feet is now being grazed                 at by the ridges that pull themselves up, higher,                 lifted to breaking point. Vehicles of words             sift forwards to complain        at the curbside. But the cars,     vans, lorries, taxis (and on) keep on, keep going until the bikes lights cannot be seen.

  • Lessons Learned from the Google Flu Tracker—Why We Need More Than Just Data

    Mary Ludloff
    9 Apr 2014 | 7:15 pm
    By Marilyn Craig and Mary Ludloff We read an interesting paper and post about Google Flu Trends (GFT) and its foibles last week. The paper points out a couple of lessons that those of us living in the big data analytics world have learned the hard way but the dangers are worth revisiting as tools like ours (AnalyticsPBI for Azure) begin to move big data analytics into the mainstream of organizational practices. After all, our tool (and others like it) makes it easy and even fun for analytics junkies to use all those available zettabytes of data and answer questions that they’ve long…
  • Reporting, Analytics, and Big Data: A Continuous Feedback Loop to Drive Better Decision-Making

    Mary Ludloff
    2 Mar 2014 | 3:07 pm
    By Marilyn Craig A recent conversation with a client reminded me that no matter how crazy and exciting the Big Data world gets, it is still critical to understand what your goals are and where you are in the process of reaching those goals. Having a good foundation in “what’s important” is critical before you jump into the wild world of Big Analytics. For example, in big data (well, actually all data but I digress) “Reporting” and “Analytics” are very different functions. But I often find our customers and prospects grappling with how to distinguish one from the other and as a…
  • New Year (2014) Rumination: Death of privacy as we know it? Or inflection point signaling better things to come?

    Mary Ludloff
    11 Jan 2014 | 12:16 pm
    By Mary Ludloff I am, and always have been, a glass half-full kind of gal. In fact, way back in September 2011 when Terence and I published our book on Privacy and Big Data, I was far more optimistic than he was on the future of privacy—of course, it’s easy to sound optimistic when your co-author states that privacy is dead. (And yes, we are still working on our book update but we do have day jobs and a significant release in the works so it is slow going but going it is.) At that time, those in the “digital privacy know” characterized our book as a decent overview. Our intent at the…
  • Ways to Help the Philippines Recover

    Mary Ludloff
    14 Nov 2013 | 8:55 am
    By Mary Ludloff This past weekend the Philippines and surrounding areas were decimated by super typhoon Haiyan. The storm was estimated to have sustaining winds of 195 mph with winds gusts up to 235 mph. It is believed to be one of the strongest storms ever recorded. For those of us who have lived through typhoons and hurricanes (myself included) and felt the power of those storms, what we saw was nothing compared to what the Philippines endured. The death toll is now estimated to be above 10,000 and climbing and the devastation it left is likened to the destruction wrought by the 2004 Indian…

While the buttons provide quick access to applications, some people need every inch of screen real-estate that they can get and would rather the Taskbar take less room, but still be instantly accessible and onscreen at all times.

  • Age Calculator, a Windows Phone app that may make you feel older

    George Ponder
    16 Apr 2014 | 5:15 am
    Age Calculator is a Windows Phone app that will break down your age into years, months, days, hours, minutes and seconds. The app doesn’t do much beyond that. The Windows Phone app has a simple interface and does come across with a bit of a novelty feel. Still, it is somewhat interesting see how those years can translate into seconds. It may surprise you how quickly those seconds can add up.

    Paul Acevedo
    16 Apr 2014 | 5:14 am
    Universal game purchases have long been one of the most requested features from avid Windows Phone gamers, right behind SD card support (at last!) and more Xbox games (no luck yet). Already popular on iOS, the universal app concept allows users to buy a game or app once and then play it on both Windows Phone and Windows 8 and RT. Yesterday Microsoft and 343’s Halo: Spartan Assault officially became the first universal app on Windows Phone and Windows 8. It turns out that several more Windows Phone/Windows 8 Xbox games also went universal alongside Halo. Most are technically free and thus…

It’s another step Microsoft has made to allow users to customize and make their Windows Phone experience unique and personal. We happen to be very big fans of the Start backgrounds and have seen the community respond to them positively as well. A lot of you were timid and curbed your enthusiasm when Start backgrounds leaked a month ago, but the response after actually using it has been the opposite.

  • The Challenges of Milestone Funding

    David Ehrenberg
    15 Apr 2014 | 12:02 pm
    As all of our clients (and anyone who’s ever spoken to me!) knows, I am a huge, huge fan of milestone funding. That is, when you’re looking for investment capital, you first identify your milestones and then calculate how much capital you will need to raise in order to achieve these milestones. This is the best way to determine and articulate how much capital you will need. Investors like milestone funding as it makes clear how much money you will need and what you’re going to do with it (which inspires confidence that they will see a return on their investment). It also helps to keep…

  • Everything is Awesome…and LEGO is Living the Dream

    Ashley Ericksen
    31 Mar 2014 | 6:52 am
    I recently shared with a group of colleagues my new found love of LEGOs. My 6-year old son has served as my gateway back into the LEGO franchise. Constructing LEGO sets is now a family activity  – my son finds the pieces, I put together the LEGOs, my daughter turns the instruction pages and my husband steps in when things go wrong (i.e., a little person accidentally throws away a piece the size of a pin head). And then a few hours later my son takes it all apart to create something new, much to my chagrin (which explains why I liked the LEGOMovie so much).Given my renewed interest in…

  • Nutritional Panels Do a Body Good? The FDA Thinks So

    Maureen Evans
    17 Mar 2014 | 9:13 am
    The FDA recently announced their proposal to change the format of the Nutrition Facts label. This is the first change to the label originally designed and introduced in 1993. So, why the change after 20+ years? Well, it’s being proposed for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the link to the obesity epidemic in the United States. If a nutrition facts panel is clearer, easier to read, and more focused on the relevant information to equip consumers to make informed choices, the hope is that more and more people will use the nutrition facts label to guide their purchase decisions.

    My website was needing a fresh new look, and what better chance to learn a new approach than this? You may ask why would you want to move from WordPress to Jekyll when everything works just fine? That's a good question and I think the short answer is to learn.
  • Simple SCSS spinner animation

    9 Feb 2014 | 10:00 pm
    If you're using Wordpress, you surely have seen this spinner effect while performing various actions within the admin area. I liked it a lot and that's the reason I made a SCSS version of it, posted a demo on CodePen and even it's not rocket science, I pushed it on GitHub too.

  • Internet Censorship is an invasion of privacy

    6 Apr 2014 | 1:49 am
    With the on-going debacle about the Kangkung saga dying down, I thought it would be a good opportunity to write specifically about internet censorship and its implications to ordinary Malaysian citizens. As you may well know, many Malaysia Netizens reported of difficulty accessing one particular post of the BBC website that dealt with the Kangkung issues, causing many to cite that Telekom Malaysia was actually censoring the internet–but what does internet censorship actually entail for Malaysia? Let’s first take a step back, and understand how and Internet Service Provider (ISP)…

    The latest PISA 2012 results are out, and it comes with a twist. Instead of testing the usual ‘knowledge’ of the students, PISA crafted a new exam meant to test the creative problem solving skills of students in various countries. further explains: The assessment, which was the subject of an Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development  (OECD) report released Tuesday, defined creative problem-solving as the ability to “understand and resolve problem situations where a method of solution is not immediately obvious.” Worldwide, a representative…
  • MH370 crashed our romanticized perception of technology

    Keith Rozario
    22 Mar 2014 | 2:55 am
    As our thoughts and prayers remain with the passengers of flight MH370, I think that as the search enters its 3rd week, it’s a good time to reflect on just how much our perception of aviation technology has changed as a result. It’s quite important to differentiate between what REALLY happens and what we THINK happens, an in some cases the gulf is so large, that our perception of what happens borders on science-fiction. Take for example, our perception of the US Secret Service. Years of Hollywood movies have led us to believe that if anyone even thought about firing a weapon at…
  • Is it Root-er or Rao-ter : The age old question for the pronunciation of the word router

    Keith Rozario
    3 Mar 2014 | 6:15 am
    Here’s an age old question, is it pronounced router (as in rao-ter) or is it router (as in root-er). A lot of people seem to think it depends where you are, if you’re in the US, it’s rao-ter, and if you’re in the UK it’s root-er. But the internet is global, it doesn’t care where you are, it doesn’t matter which culture you’re from, there can only be one answer to this question, and it must be location agnostic. So here’s the answer it’s RAO-TER, and here’s why. If you find it you get to name it In Science and Engineering…
  • Tun Dr M supports Israel via his website

    Keith Rozario
    10 Feb 2014 | 4:54 am
    Tun Dr M, our beloved former Prime Minister, openly supports Israel–well sort off. Today on his blog, he called on everyone to boycott Israel, stating quite clearly in his latest post that; I think the whole world in the interest of justice should boycott doing business with Israel. This is truly a pariah state which is immoral and beyond the pale of human laws. Now of course, you’re wondering if Tun Dr M supports Israel or not? Well in actual fact it’s both, because while his words say he opposes Israel, his actions, specifically those of his website suggest…

  • Why you should be an 8 to 11 blogger?

    9 Apr 2014 | 11:27 pm
    I have read in the book “Think and grow rich” that if people stood by a desire then they would have a different story to tell. All achievement in the world was done by people who burned all bridges never to come back, to do or to die. And they did. This very much applies to blogging, there are a lot of people who start blogging and after a few months abandon it because they are not getting the results that they want. They would try but little for the sake of trying. Today’s post is for all those who quit early. Remember that the darkest hours are just before the sun rises. Jon Morrow…

  • Remove DRM from itunes M4V movies with NoteBurner M4V Converter

    DRM protected media is common anti-piracy technology but most of the time it annoys the users who have legally purchased or download the audio or video file. The problem with DRM protected media is that it’s not compatible with portable media players or smartphones. Removing the DRM protection from the media files makes the video/audio compatible to practically any portable device or smartphone. If you’re an Apple fan and use MacOS then you probably should be familiar with M4V format from iTunes. To play a M4V file your computer has to be authorized with your iTunes account.

    Until now, we had hybrid drives which uses a small flash NAND for Read Only cache paired with a mechanical drive. While it doesn’t give complete benefits for a pure breed SSD, it does help in boot and application load times. And it worked. There are those who want a dedicated storage with flash NAND but with capacity of about 1TB drive- that’s where drives like Samsung EVO 1TB comes in. But at the price of US $459.99/ UK £363.81, its an out-of-reach for many. This issue of having an ‘all-in-one’ storage solution would mostly affect notebook users, unless desktop users want a…

He prepped food, staffed appropriately, trimmed the pruned the landscape and cleaned the bathrooms. Yet, no one came. What now? This could be a journal entry made by a restaurateur from a small village in Tuscany, or an operator in Dallas. When customers just stop coming to dine, then what? What if it just suddenly or even gradually became quiet and not necessarily as a result of the lowering of the qualify of the product, food, service or environment. What then? What if the restaurant…

She said yes, that she used several boards and even on a contact, the average post costs her $200. So,since FohBoh also has a jobs board dedicated to the foodservice industry and since our posts are syndicated and picked up by most other boards, the cost of posting is all about point of entry.

On the surface, you might think this would be a no-brainer; I mean, how could a smart business owner, who put…

    Most of you will have a number of songs in your iTunes library, and chances are some will have hundreds and thousands of songs in their library. You might also like a sound bite or two and would like to use them as a ringtone for your phone. While there are a number of third-party apps that’ll let you do this, your simplest option is to use a utility available in OS X’s Terminal to convert audio files to ringtones for your iOS device.This particular utility is called “afconvert” and has been included in OS X since 2003. “afconvert” stands for “Audio…
  • Will We Not Have to Charge Devices in the Future?

    Miguel Leiva-Gomez
    14 Apr 2014 | 4:25 pm
    When you plug your phone into its charger, you’re probably already so used to it that you don’t realize how much of an inconvenience it is. You require the right kind of cable (although most phone manufacturers are phasing in universal USB charging), the proper milliamperage, and the right cable length. What if I told you that soon we’ll be seeing a future in which we don’t have to tether ourselves to those awful cables that just add more clutter to our rooms? What if that future is happening as we speak? It’s time we talk about ways in which the charger is going…

  • Review of Handy Linux – A Distro For The Absolute Beginner

    Gary Sims
    14 Apr 2014 | 7:50 am
    Now that Windows XP is officially unsupported by Microsoft, the need is greater than ever for PC operating systems that can be used on older hardware but without a complex user interface that requires a steep learning curve. Zorin OS is one possible alternative as it uses a theme that should be familiar to Windows XP users. Another XP alternative is Handy Linux. Rather than attempting to mimic XP, Handy Linux offers a very simple user interface which does away with the Start menu and replaces it with a simple window which groups together key applications by type.InstallationDownload Handy…

  • Fear not the hipster beard: it too shall pass

    Rob Brooks, Professor of Evolutionary Ecology; Director, Evolution &amp; Ecology Research Centre at UNSW Australia
    15 Apr 2014 | 4:58 pm
    Beards are back, baby! Juan Luis/Flickr If you haven’t been outdoors in a few years, you might not have noticed that beards are back. Back in such a big way that apparently many New York hipsters are paying north of US$8,000 for “facial hair transplants” to embellish their patchy beards. While the hipster subculture appears to be ground zero for the latest swerve toward beardedness, men who would not be seen dead in skinny jeans or thrift-shop cardigans are letting the whiskers grow in a way that hasn’t been fashionable for decades. Why are beards sprouting from the unlikeliest faces?
  • What are the chances that your dad isn't your father?

    Rob Brooks, Professor of Evolutionary Ecology; Director, Evolution &amp; Ecology Research Centre at UNSW Australia
    15 Apr 2014 | 1:37 pm
    How confident are you that the man you call dad is really your biological father? If you believe some of the most commonly-quoted figures, you could be forgiven for not being very confident at all. But how accurate are those figures? Questions of paternity are built over the deepest well of human insecurity, for children searching to know who they are, for fathers wanting to know whose kids they are raising and for mothers uncertain about the strength of the bonds holding their families together. I consulted on an episode of SBS’s Tales of the Unexpected documentary series, “Who’s Your…
  • Crater creator uses explosions to find the secrets of volcanoes

    Robin George Andrews, Postgraduate experimental volcanologist at University of Otago
    14 Apr 2014 | 9:29 pm
    You can learn a lot about volcanoes by studying explosions. The more we can learn about their explosive behaviour, the more chance we have of saving lives when they suddenly erupt. There are many volcanoes on the planet today – some still active such as Russia’s Sarychev Peak (above) and Kilauea, on Hawaii’s Big Island, and others currently dormant including the beautifully symmetrical Mount Fuji in Japan. But there are also certain volcanic systems that misbehave. They are concealed beneath the surface of the planet, and we often only realise they’re there when they erupt. The…
  • Scrimp now, pay later: CSIRO cuts could stifle long-term research

    Ben McNeil, Senior Research Fellow at UNSW Australia
    14 Apr 2014 | 1:37 pm
    The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), Australia’s national science agency, is said to be preparing for cuts of up to 20% of government funding – that’s around A$150 million – in the coming budget. This figure is based on a worst-case scenario modelled by senior executives at the organisation. Around 60% of the CSIRO’s funding is from the government, and any cuts would be further compounded by the organisation’s 700 job losses in the space of only a year. The Federal Government has not commented either way on any possible CSIRO cuts but while…

  • Toshiba offers 4K in new Satellite P55t laptop

    Mihaita Bamburic
    16 Apr 2014 | 4:33 am
    The displays of mid-range and high-end laptops have reached a point when distinguishing pixels is no longer easy. We can thank high resolutions for that. Nowadays, even small laptops can tote 1080p, and some offer even more than that. Manufacturers can start focusing on other aspects, as any improvements in this area are purely incremental. And, there is only so much the human eye can see, after all. (But, we can all enjoy battery life improvements, for instance.) Toshiba has not yet given up on competing in the specs race though, as it just unveiled a new laptop, called Satellite P55t,…
  • Big Data is the new Artificial Intelligence

    This is the first of a couple columns about a growing trend in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and how it is likely to be integrated in our culture. Computerworld ran an interesting overview article on the subject yesterday that got me thinking not only about where this technology is going but how it is likely to affect us not just as a people. but as individuals. How is AI likely to affect me? The answer is scary. Today we consider the general case and tomorrow the very specific. The failure of Artificial Intelligence. Back in the 1980s there was a popular field called Artificial Intelligence,…
  • Freeplane: a versatile brainstorming tool

    Mike Williams
    16 Apr 2014 | 12:40 am
    Whether you need to understand a problem, complete a task, or just generally get organized, mind mapping can probably help. Not least because it’s so easy. Start with the central issue; note down any related ideas, and begin to arrange and order them. You’ll quickly come up with a structure which helps you better understand the issue. You can do all this on paper, or whiteboard, of course, but turning to a computer, and the open source Freeplane, gives you much more scope. The program -- a redesigned and extended version of FreeMind -- can be used to build regular, static mind maps.

    Wayne Williams

    I’ve been asked by a couple of people in the past week how to download the Windows 8.1 ISO file from Microsoft. Downloading the ISO file necessary to install the OS at a later date, or on another system, is very straightforward, although it’s far from obvious. I covered this six months ago, but things have changed and less trickery is involved now. At the moment the provided ISO file doesn’t contain the recently released Update, so you’ll need to update Windows straight after installation has finished to guarantee you have the latest version. To get the ISO file, go here. If you have…

    The cost to build Samsung’s Galaxy line of smartphone has been steadily increasing with each generation according to a report from IHS Technology. After examining the hardware found within the device, IHS came to the conclusion that the materials cost $256, up from the $236 that the S4 cost and the $205 that the S3 cost.One of the more interesting comparisons however was the difference in build price between the Galaxy S5 and the Apple iPhone 5S. Based upon IHS’s analysis, the 32GB iPhone 5S costs just $206 to build.While this may mean a lot if you are comparing two Android…

    15 Apr 2014 | 11:39 am

  • Sorry Facebook, Google Has Purchased Titan Aerospace

    15 Apr 2014 | 8:00 am
    Titan Aerospace has confirmed that its new owner is officially Google, a company that has also been working on aerial technologies. It had been widely reported in March that Facebook was interested in buying the New Mexico-based drone maker, but it seems like the social network’s interest went away or Google had a lot more money to offer.Both Google and Facebook have plans to provide cheap, wide-spread internet access around the world and both seem as though they will be doing so with the help of aerial vehicles, whether they be drones, or in Google’s case, balloons.Facebook did…
  • Mozilla Replaces Controversial CEO Brendan Eich With Chris Beard

    Seth Fitzgerald
    15 Apr 2014 | 7:17 am
    Chris Beard has now been promoted to the position of interim CEO at Mozilla after Brendan Eich was forced to step down because of a $1,000 donation he made in 2008. That donation, which was sent in support of the anti-gay marriage bill Proposition 8, caused outrage among some developers and users. As a result, Mozilla opted to remove Eich so that the company could move forward.Some people are calling Mozilla and Eich’s decision an overreaction, but either way, Beard is now the man in charge and could even end up becoming the permanent CEO.When the controversy erupted and people…

  • Pioneer NEX CarPlay In-Dash Head Units

    16 Apr 2014 | 2:46 am
    when Apple CarPlay was announced, fans have mixed reactions. on one hand, they rejoice at the availability of the familiar OS adapted for in-car infotainment and on the other, it appears that such luxury will only be accessible if you buy a spanking new ride. and to add insult to injury – not every damn cars will have them. clearly, buying a new set of wheels is not within the reach of many, but despite the darkness there is a glimmer of hope for those we really wants CarPlay integration with their existing automobile, cos’ Pioneer car audio arm’s NEX in-dash system is the…

    there are too many small items like EDC makes organization an impossibility and so the next best solution is to stash them all away for an appeared clutter-free look, or at least that is what the Balka Console by Gregoire de Lafforest proposed. the rationale is, we tend leave things around on the table and what if this tablet can swallow up those things anytime you choose so and thereby presenting you with a clean, uncluttered table top? sitting atop a set of skinny pointed legs is a sculptured oak top with a built-in ‘chute’ that allows every day small items such as keys,…

    I was invited to take the new 2015 Honda Fit for a test drive in San Diego California late last month. Honda sent me and a few other bloggers to the beautiful coastal city of San Diego and showed us the technology and many features to allow us create our own opinion of the subcompact hatchback car. At first glance the small car appeared to be your average subcompact car. I am not going to tell you the typical things you I would read on the car focused websites. I am going to rate this car in terms of appearance, technology, and features. All opinions are my own. Ok, well, not just mine but my…

    If there were any cause that touches me the most, it would be domestic violence. I am no stranger to years of extreme physical and mental abuse. My every action was controlled and I suffered the consequences if I did not do as I was “supposed to”. I alienated my closest friends; they just could not stand by and watch me allow myself to be abused.  The only issue was, I was not yet strong enough to leave. Not physically strong enough, but mentally and emotionally strong enough. But when I was ready to break the abuse cycle that was going on inside my home, I was ready to become my…

    When I had to replace my TV and bought a new Smart TV, I could have not have chosen a better HDTV in my opinion. I love all the features it offers especially when my husband is watching a sports game. He likes to pause and rewind the TV and his leisure. I on the other hand, like to also pause my favorite TV shows when I have to get up to go do something. And because I am into social media the way I am , I like to tweet during a show. I feel like I am in a big room with a ton of others watching the same show along with me. Of course I cant tweet from my TV while I am watching a show.

  • On That "DevOps is Killing the Developer" Post

    Chris Mahns
    15 Apr 2014 | 9:23 pm
    DevOps is Different Things to Different People Sometimes, it seems like the worst term to come out the DevOps movement was "DevOps". After all these years, it still seems to have different meanings to different people. Case in point, an absolutely wonderful post recently from Jeff Knupp: How DevOps is Killing the Developer. If you haven't already done so, give it a read. In the article, Mr. Knupp provides what I personally thought was a pretty good definition of what "DevOps" is (or was?): "DevOps" is meant to denote a close collaboration and cross-pollination between what were previously…
  • iControl Perl - Authentication

    Chris Mahns
    3 Mar 2014 | 6:30 am
    Another thing that each of these iControl Perl scripts is going to need to do is to authenticate with the BigIP ltm. Since you are connecting using https, you are going to be using Basic Authentication. Below are a couple of options for setting authentication up. The first method, which seems to be the most popular, is to insert the userid and password into SOAP::Lite's get_basic_credentials method, which would get set prior to creating your soap request. For example: my $host = "the_bigip_hostname_or_ipaddr" my $port = "443"; my $uid = "some_user_id"; my $pwd = "some_password"; sub…
  • iControl Perl - User Accounts

    Chris Mahns
    24 Feb 2014 | 7:00 am
    Figuring out what kind of user account your iControl script is going to require is about as simple as figuring out what rights a regular user is going to need. If your script is simply echoing back statistics or pools or pool member stats or virtual server configurations, you don't need a user account that is going to have Administrative rights to your BigIP. You can get away with "Auditor" rights for these types of scripts. They also will not require any special terminal rights since they are going to be executed remotely. If your script is going to enable or disable nodes or pool members,…

    After having the BigIP's in house for a while now and spending a bit of time writing iRules, I felt like it was time to give iControl a try. My intentions were noble: Kill two birds with one stone by learning iControl and Java. Something about it keeps drawing me back to Perl though. It is hard to explain but, for me, Perl is like a sketchpad. I can scribble away at a script until I have something that works. It might not be museum-worthy but it still looks good and conveys what I'm trying to do rather nicely. I like the sigils, too. Back when I was a kid, I was a huge comics fan and I loved…

    15 Apr 2014 | 5:43 pm
    I have been analyzing SPECsfs results now for almost 7 years now and I feel that maybe it’s time for me to discuss some of the t problems with SPECsfs2008 today that should be fixed in the next SPECsfs20xx whenever that comes out. CIFS/SMB First and foremost, for CIFS SMB 1 is no longer pertinent to today’s data center.
