    Researchers at the Salk Institute have discovered an on/off switch for telomerase, an enzyme that rebuilds a cellular timekeeper known as a telomere. The scientists believe that the discovery could provide a way to get human cells to divide indefinitely without degenerating, thereby regenerating healthy organs even in old age...

    In the face of today’s unprecedented data explosion, many companies are struggling to deal with their backup workload, often lacking an adequate data-protection strategy. “Most companies struggle with backup in some form or another,” said Paul Davis, product development director for the data protection division of Dell Software. “Not only are they producing a higher volume of data than ever before, but that data is spread across an ever-growing range of data types and locations, and more of it is now classified as mission- or business-critical than ever before.”…
  • Better health risk analysis powered by big data

    22 Sep 2014 | 2:30 pm
    As a volunteer fireman I have to undergo an annual health inspection. I’m something of a fitness fanatic and take my health pretty seriously. Every time I have my health check I’m pleased with the fact that my cholesterol is off the charts low, my weight is within normal bounds, my lung capacity is high and all the other tests that generally show that I’m in great shape. But… As part of the health test, firefighters are given an MI (myocardial infraction) risk score. Essentially this is a score that tells us what chance there is of us suffering a heart attack in the next 12 months.
  • Why CSO pay is too low in San Francisco, New York

    22 Sep 2014 | 1:30 pm
    CSOs may get paid a lot in New York and San Francisco, but cost of living offsets that. Credit: Shutterstock Among six major U.S. cities, CSOs are paid the most in San Francisco and New York, but factoring in the cost of living makes Denver and Chicago the best bang-for-the-buck places. The median income for CSOs between April 2013 and April 2014 was $184,000 in San Francisco and New York, while Denver was $162,500 and Chicago $144,500, IT placement company Mondo reported Thursday. However, the higher salary paid in San Francisco and New York was offset by the much higher cost of living.

The handy tools remember your long and hard-to-crack passwords to make them less of a hassle to create and use. But what if the benefits of stronger passwords and fewer opportunities for key-logging malware to capture them are negated when cybercriminals use the password manager itself to steal the passwords?

This stands in stark contrast to the recent news about RadioShack. Impending bankruptcy will probably drag this out for years, but the writing on the wall seems clear: the once-dominant consumer electronics retailer is going to die. And that’s too bad.

  • Is the App Ecosystem Sustainable?

    Bob O'Donnell

    The focus on mobility and mobile platforms as the growth engines for the tech industry’s future is now so engrained into most people’s heads that it seems nearly blasphemous to suggest there could be faults in that thinking. But there’s a question that keeps popping into my mind—is the mobile app ecosystem really sustainable at its size and rate of growth? I’m increasingly starting to think that no, it isn’t.

    Let’s start with the bad news: The Apple Watch. This beautiful, technological marvel is, in my view, the device our future selves point back to as delineating when Apple changed forever. Not necessarily for the good. The company long known for delivering absolutely amazing computing devices, so perfect, so uncannily universal that often times, one device, one product line, one price point is sufficient, is no more. The new Apple Watch starts out with three distinct variations and what appears to be a near-infinite number of eye-catching bands. This feels wrong. Tim Cook said the Apple…

    When Apple and GT Advanced announced a partnership to make and purchase sapphire screens, most of the media jumped to the conclusion Apple was going to use them in their upcoming smartphones. However, when the iPhones were launched and no sapphire screens were used in the iPhone 6 or the iPhone 6 Plus, I began digging into the reason. What I have learned about this issue and why Apple chose not to include sapphire in this generation of iPhone is fascinating and reinforces why all of us need to be more careful before jumping to conclusions.

    By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) As you might have noticed, I like to interview people. Really important people. I literally made myself a list of individuals that I would one day, somehow, hope to have the privilege to interview. Some of them were a little out there. You know, people like the actress Alyssa Milano (remember Who’s the Boss? Good times.), Om Malik, the father of tech journalism, and even Steve Wozniak who founded this small company called Apple with his buddy Steve Jobs in their garage. I set myself some pretty high goals and so far, so good. Alyssa Milano One of the people…
  • iPhone 6: Say Goodbye to Cracked Screens, Scratched Displays, or Color Distortion of Any Kind

    8 Jul 2014 | 11:21 pm
    By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) Listen up, folks. I am not a big fan of product leaks or Apple rumors. I mean, we all know that prior to every big Apple launch of any kind, the rumor mill goes into high gear. How often are those rumors accurate? Not very often… But then there are some sources that you just know are reliable. Marques Brownlee is one such source. And this video of the iPhone 6 display is obviously legit so can we just put that behind us and discuss the topic at hand? Great. According to many sources, the iPhone will introduce the first display on a mobile phone made out of…
  • The One Android Flaw that Kept me on iPhone but Is Now Fixed in Android L

    3 Jul 2014 | 6:58 am
    By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) Listen, I have no intention of starting an iOS vs Android debate here so if that is why you opened this article, allow me to introduce you to the little X in the corner… I use an iPhone 5S as my daily phone and until recently, there was no way I was going to replace that with an Android device. Yes, I am fully aware that some of the newer Android flagship devices are more impressive than the iPhone, in both personality and looks, but for me, despite many MANY attempts, I stuck with iPhone. I have played with the Nexus 5. I have even played with the HTC M8.

    Stanford University recently declared that it will not use money from Google to fund privacy research at its Center for Internet and Society, according to a legal filing made by the school. "Since 2013, Google funding is specifically designated not [to] be used for CIS’s privacy work," the university said in the court filing, found by ProPublica in documents filed in an unrelated lawsuit.

  • Home-Packed Lunches Often Flunk Nutrition, Study Finds

    23 Sep 2014 | 4:45 am
    There are many benefits of packing a lunch for your child. In most cases, you save money and gain the peace of mind of knowing that your kids aren't left to their own devices in the lunch line (french fries and apple pie, anyone?). But are you giving your kids the best meal they could eat? It turns out that the brown-bag lunches we make may be less nutritious than we think they are, according to a study published last month in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The study showed that most home-packed lunches flunked when they were graded based on the criteria set by the…

    Here’s what could happen if you bring a fancy new cleaning gadget into your home: sparks will fly and love will bloom. And that’s not just between your lazy bones and your Vorwerk self-propelled vacuum. Your toy robot, a randy little guy with an eye for fresh meat, wants in on the action, too. This new commercial, a continuation of the current robot rage in advertising, stars a classic character with shades of Wall-E pursuing an automaton that may just be out of his league. He’s undaunted, though, willing to make a goof of himself for the object of his affection. Look at him…

  • Internal Emails Show Harris Corp. Misled The FCC On Stingray Device Usage In Order To Receive Approval

    Tim Cushing
    23 Sep 2014 | 3:57 am
    Harris Corporation's Stingray cell tower spoofers are swiftly becoming synonymous with government lying. The FBI has specifically instructed law enforcement agencies to lie about the use of these products, which basically puts the agencies in the position of lying to courts when producing evidence or securing warrants. Law enforcement agencies would probably lie anyway, even without the federal government's nudge. Many chose to read the restrictive non-disclosure agreements Harris includes as meaning they should withhold this information from local courts -- rather than simply seal the…

    Tim Cushing
    23 Sep 2014 | 12:51 am
    Few entities approach new advances in technology with more foreboding than school administrations. What could be used as portals to a nearly-infinite supply of information via the internet is often neutered into uselessness by schools' acceptable use policies (AUP). Several months back, the Los Angeles Unified School District shelled out $500 million on iPads for its students. Within a week of the first deployment, the schools were already repossessing the devices. Students found that the new tool was aggressively limited by school-installed software that turned the Information Superhighway…
  • Could Taking A Selfie In A Museum Violate Copyright Law?

    Mike Masnick
    22 Sep 2014 | 8:44 pm
    Copyright infringement is everywhere. A few years back, John Tehranian wrote a paper (and then a book*) called "Infringement Nation" about just how much copyright infringement happens incidentally on a daily basis. The conclusion, from a back of the envelope estimate, is that an average person is likely liable for $4.544 billion in incidental infringement in a normal year. And that's not for sharing music and movies and what not, but just doing the normal everyday things you do. With the news that the National Gallery in the UK has rescinded its long-standing "no photographs" rule, it appears…

    22 Sep 2014 | 5:00 pm
    The costs of analyzing DNA have come down significantly over time, so it's becoming increasingly common to sequence DNA and discover all kinds of biological curiosities. It's not quite as fast and easy as they make it look on detective shows on TV, but DNA analysis has made some pretty amazing advances. Here are just a few examples of genetic testing that you might have missed. It's actually not that uncommon to find people who are chimeras -- individuals with multiple genomes in their bodies. Twins can end up with a mixture of blood types that co-exist in their veins. Nearly all mothers…

    We recently wrote about a very questionable lawsuit filed by, Roca Labs, a "dietary supplement" company (it apparently prefers "nutraceutical") with a claimed "alternative" to gastric bypass surgery made up of some ingredients that they claim will expand and fill up your stomach so you're not hungry. When you buy, the company "offers" a "discount" if you agree to never, ever say anything bad about the company, ever: You agree that regardless of your outcome, you will not disparage RLN and/or any of our employees, products or services. This means that you will not speak, publish, cause to be…

  • Bulldog 25K at Malibu Creek State Park Race Report

    26 Aug 2014 | 6:49 am
    I completed the Bulldog 25K trail race this past weekend, August 23 2014. This was my longest and only second trail race. After doing the XTERRA Malibu Creek Challenge 22K race in May, I had started eyeing the Bulldog race and immediately started training for it. I took a bit of circuitous route though, doing a series of 5K races including the Father’s Day 5K race and three of the fun “Boogie Nights” 5K races that were held on Wednesday afternoons near Surfer’s Point in Ventura. The other element that I added was some comprehensive trail running. Between May and August…

    18 Jun 2014 | 12:10 am
    After finishing the XTERRA Malibu Creek 22K race in May, I took some time to pick my next challenge. I finally decided on running my first 5K race, the inaugural Father’s Day 5K 10K Race in Ventura on June 15. This race had a couple of appealing aspects – it had a beach cruiser giveaway and the course happens to be on one of my favorite training routes. I also liked the idea of doing a 5K run to determine my “5K pace” which is helpful for planning workouts. For example, if I’m doing a certain type of interval run I can determine the pace based on an actual 5K…

    19 May 2014 | 7:44 am
    I ran the XTERRA Malibu Creek Challenge 22K Trail Run on Saturday and it was hot. The good news was that it wasn’t as hot as it had been all week (high 90′s and low 100′s) but it was still plenty hot in the high 80′s. This was my first of hopefully many trail races and it was a bit of a beast. I decided to do the race about three weeks ago and only had one chance to check out part of the course. I blogged about that experience in my pre-race report. Having never tried to tackle the infamous Bulldog Road portion of the course before, I tried to figure out how tough it…

I had run into the XTERRA Malibu Creek Trail Run race in a magazine and thought I’d check out the site. Once I got to the Park I found out that parking was $12 and that they didn’t take credit. If you go to a park and have cash on hand, pay it. They need the revenue. I didn’t have it so I parked up across the street. More on this in a bit. If you’re more of a…

The Santa To The Sea was on a very flat course with an elevation loss but the Ojai race features a bounty of rolling hills. As part of my training for this race, I ran the last 3 miles of the race on one weekend and ran the larger loop part of the course last week. I’m glad I did the training runs and tracked my heart rate because it helped me create a plan of attack for the race.

Much of Glass Cage is concerned with flight, where the combination of risk, speed, and tedium made it an early target for automation.

    According to earlier reports, it was suggested that iOS 8’s adoption rate was around 30% less than a week since its release. However it seems that Apple themselves have a different number because according to the Apple developer support page (via MacRumors), it seems that they are boasting a much more impressive 46% adoption rate. This seems to suggest that almost 50% of iOS users have adopted iOS 8 since its release last week. As you can see in the pie chart, iOS 7 is still maintaining its lead at 49%, with other operating systems sitting at 5%. However given the rate of adoption, we…
  • Sony Could Dominate The Console Space, According To Analyst

    Tyler Lee
    23 Sep 2014 | 3:45 am
    In terms of the console wars, it certainly looks like Sony is winning at the moment. The company has proudly announced how they have managed to sell millions upon millions of consoles, versus Microsoft who seems to have only announced shipping numbers, which as we have pointed out in the past, are very different numbers altogether. However both consoles are barely a year old which means there is still plenty of time and plenty of games that could shift the scales in either side’s favor, but according to one analyst Eiichi Katayama, he seems to believe that Sony will most likely end up being…

    After so many years, it seems that the Pokemon franchise is still going strong. As gamers might have heard by now, there will be new Pokemon games coming up soon in the form of Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire and to commemorate the launch of the new games, Nintendo has also taken the wraps off two new Nintendo 2DS consoles. For those who are unfamiliar with the Nintendo 3DS, these are consoles that differ from the 3DS in the sense that they do not flip open. Instead, as you can see in the image above, they are just one big huge device which kind of reminds us of the handheld consoles…

    We could argue for hours on what phone is the smarter buy nowadays in the high-end spectrum, but when it comes to the budget, low to mid-end niche, everybody knows who number one is. It’s Motorola’s Moto G, although with an LTE-enabled flavor of the first-gen device around, as well as a larger sequel, it’s become fairly difficult to pick here too. And while you won’t be sorry no matter which of the three you end up choosing, if you’re only… Continue reading Unlocked first-gen Motorola Moto G drops to $160 on Amazon Related posts: Amazon Drops Moto X Price to $0.01 with Sprint…

    22 Sep 2014 | 1:15 pm
    HTC is said to be working on the next Google Nexus 9 tablet, which has seen its fair share of rumors in the past few weeks. The tablet came under the spotlight a week back, codenamed Volantis, carrying an 8.9-inch display and a Tegra K1 processor, as per the rumor mill. According to a new report from the Wall Street Journal, citing people familiar with the plan, Google has selected HTC as the next Nexus tablet manufacturer, with the executives flying to the Google headquarters in Mountain View to work on the project.Continue reading Report: Google working with HTC on the next Nexus tablet,…

    I’ve had the Pong Case on my iPhone 5S for the past couple weeks. My case, specifically, is a Classic style case in Radiant Orchid and it fits my personality perfectly. The Pong case’s intent is to both reduce radiation exposure for the use and increase outgoing service in the phone. The case contains a micro-thin gold antenna that redirects the phone’s Total Radiated Power (TRP) outward. In redirecting this radiation, the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) is… Continue reading Gadgetell Review: Pong Case Related posts: Pong wants to protect you from your iPhone’s radiation Atari…

    Well autumn is nigh upon us here in the Northern reaches of the Linux blogosphere, and any day now the a/c will downshift to "medium" over at the Broken Windows Lounge. Oktoberfest ales are selling like hotcakes, and more than a few bloggers are rejoicing at the end of the Dog Days at last. The world might feel once again like a happy and wondrous place but for the recent arrival of a sad bit of news.

The journeys are virtual, using 4D sensory technology based on Oculus Rift. Travel enthusiasts are able to see, hear and even feel what it's like to be present in locales halfway across the globe by stepping into a Teleporter -- a phone booth-style structure equipped with the Oculus Rift DK2 virtual reality headset, wireless headphones and a suite of on-board 4D sensory elements.

    Uplinq, Qualcomm's big -- and it was big -- developers' conference, took place last week. There were two parts that were particularly interesting. One was its new robotics effort, and the other was the announcement that it's pushing Vuforia, its augmented reality platform, into wearable head-mounted displays -- think Google Glass on steroids. Qualcomm is imagining a time when we'll wear these things from the moment we get up until we go to bed. It will have a rather massive impact on many of the technologies we currently use.

Without a flashy presentation, it unveiled a half-dozen new Fire tablets and Kindle e-readers. There's a 6-inch Fire HD tablet priced at $99 and a 7-inch version that comes in at $139. The Fire tablets are reliably solid machines, and those are fantastically enticing prices for entry-level tablets that still have access to all the apps a customer might expect and, of course, the Amazon digital goods ecosystem.

    Alibaba debuted as a publicly traded company Friday and swiftly climbed nearly 40 percent in a mammoth IPO that offered eager investors seemingly unlimited growth potential and a way to tap into the burgeoning Chinese middle class. The sharp demand for shares sent the market value of the e-commerce giant soaring well beyond that of Amazon, eBay and even Facebook. The initial public offering was on track to be the world's largest, with the possibility of raising as much as $25 billion.

    Apple has tightened its technological security so not even the company can pry into a password-protected iPhone or iPad, a move meant to reassure the millions of people who are increasingly storing vital pieces of their lives on the devices. The additional safeguard is part of Apple's latest mobile software, iOS 8, which the Cupertino, California, company released Wednesday. Apple Inc. revealed the stronger protection in a new section of its website that is prefaced with a letter from CEO Tim Cook who emphasized the company's "fundamental" commitment to privacy and security.

  • Data Breach Victims or Enablers?

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

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

As with the physical and diversity - related challenges of the devices themselves, you need to be cautious about assumptions for these connections.Speed or throughput of the network connection is an obvious constraint.

    As you might imagine, the networks responsible for bringing content and services to a mobile device are also notably different from the networks to which you connect laptops and desktops. Many contemporary mid - and high - end mobile devices include WiFi data connectivity, and when used in that mode, the device is connecting to a local access point, which, in turn, is most likely connected to a regular broadband - grade connection. In this case, the network connection for the device is fast, reliable, and low in latency — just as it is for the other computers and devices that are connected…

    Less than 5 years ago, when most mobile devices used their own embedded or simple real - time operating systems, it appeared to mobile web developers as though there were as many operating system versions as there were models of devices. Given that these operating systems tended tocontain their own varied browser implementations, with no option for users to upgrade them or install alternatives, the challenge of delivering a reliable web experience to all of them was almost insurmountable. Such browsers were typically very limited, and often derived from their WAP browser precedents, provided…

Very old mobile devices can be easily recognized by their larger, ungainly form, but following a period in the 1990s and 2000s, during which manufacturers sought to develop ever smaller devices, most modern devices are now of broadly similar size and weight. Not by coincidence, this is about the size that fi ts comfortably into an adult hand.A limited selection of device form factors tend to prevail in today ’ s mobile market place. Some…

    So far the rumours have indicated that Apple will be making another wave of announcements some time next month, and the new versions of the iPad will be amongst them. Sadly reports indicate that the third generation iPad Mini won’t be seen until after Christmas. According to the Commercial Times in Taiwan, sources within the supply chain have told them of this news, but failed to specify any reasons why. It doesn’t make much sense, since every rumour we’ve heard so far has told us otherwise. Then again all rumours are unverified and we shouldn’t take any of them as…

That might be different with the Apple Watch, because reports say the basic model will come with 512MB if RAM and 4GB of storage — the same as the Samsung Gear S and the Moto 360. It’s worth pointing out that this information has come from an analyst, and if the run up to the launch of the iPhone 6 showed us anything it’s that analysts generally don’t have any way to back up their sources.

    The phone dominates your attention. For nearly every use, the phone has your undivided attention. Browsing the web, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, watching video, reading, messaging—all require focus on a screen that fills your vision, your primary attention, and generally some kind of interaction. Everything else, too, is always a home button or notification-tap away at all times. Is that a shock when the phone is the single gateway to nearly everything? The PC is now for doing work, but the phone is for messaging, taking photos, sharing them, the web, Twitter, Facebook, finding places to…
  • The Successor to Siri and Open Data

    12 Aug 2014 | 5:43 pm
    The founders of Siri are working on a new service called Viv that can link disparate sources of information together to answer questions: But Kittlaus points out that all of these services are strictly limited. Cheyer elaborates: “Google Now has a huge knowledge graph—you can ask questions like ‘Where was Abraham Lincoln born?’ And it can name the city. You can also say, ‘What is the population?’ of a city and it’ll bring up a chart and answer. But you cannot say, ‘What is the population of the city where Abraham Lincoln was born?’” The system may have the data for both…

    8 Aug 2014 | 2:41 pm
    When I was growing up, I was fascinated by space. One of my earliest memories—and I know this is strange—is, when I was four or five years old, trying to grasp the concept of emptiness in space. I imagined the vast emptiness of space between galaxies, nothing but emptiness. I tried to imagine what that meant, but most of all, I tried to imagine what it would look like. That question, what color empty space would be, rolled around my brain the most. I couldn’t shake it. I would be doing something–playing Nintendo, coloring, whatever–and that question would pop into my…
  • ‡ Apple’s Advantage

    3 Jun 2014 | 11:57 pm
    Monday’s WWDC Keynote was easily the largest set of changes made to Apple’s platforms since iOS 2 was announced in 2008. The effects of what was announced will be felt and discussed for years to come. There is a lot to think through and write about, which I will be doing in the coming weeks. However, something struck me during the keynote that felt fairly small but, upon thinking about it afterward, I think could end up being important to Apple’s future success. Apple announced further updates to their cloud service where you can save all of the photos and videos you take,…

  • LG Electronics expects to sell 800,000 OLED TVs in 2015

    19 Sep 2014 | 8:04 am
    According to Digitimes, some "industry sources" say that LG Electronics dropped its OLED TV sales target for 2015 from 5 million TVs to only 800,000. LG still expects OLED to become the mainstream TV display technology in the future.While it ain't good to hear that LG is less optimistic, it should also be noted that the 5 million sales target (which indeed we heard from one LG executive) was never realistic. LGD's upcoming Gen-8 M2 OLED production line (which is still not online) will have a monthly capacity of 26,000 substrates - or about 150,000 55" panels. Assuming 100% yields (which is…

The Watch itself will only be released in "early 2015", and I thought we'd have a long time to wait before we know whether this is an OLED or LCD display.But according to several sources, it is now confirmed that the Watch uses an OLED. I cannot disclose all the sources, but my trusted and knowledgeable friend Jennifer Colegrove from Touch Display Research says she's 100% sure it is an AMOLED (it is interesting that…

  • Faster STT-MRAM via different field-like orientation

    31 Aug 2014 | 4:13 am
    Researchers from the A*STAR institute in Singapore suggest a new design that could make STT-MRAM devices faster. Using a computational model, the researchers tried different designs for the relative orientation of the magnetic fields in both MRAM layers (the 'field-like' term).The strength of the 'field-like' term depends on the device geometry and the materials used. Devices with a strong field-like term has a greater potential to reduce switching times than for devices in which the field-like term is negligible. A better understanding of the field-like term is still needed, but this work…

    I love going on vacations. I also love my friends and family. Combining the two elements, however, is not something I particularly enjoy. It’s not that I don’t want to spend time with these people in some new part of the world; I really just hate having to deal with the logistics behind such trips. Oftentimes, what ends up happening is that I’m (somehow) always left to plan the details of the trip.

    In search of a big-time drama series, Hulu has turned to a pair of big names in entertainment. The online video platform has announced a full series order for 11/22/63, an adaptation of Stephen King‘s book of the same name that will be produced by J.J. Abrams‘ Bad Robot Productions and distributed by Warner Bros.

  • YouTube Community Blacklists Sam Pepper After Controversial Video

    Sam Gutelle
    22 Sep 2014 | 2:10 pm
    Over the weekend, YouTuber Sam Pepper created a controversy when he uploaded a video called “Fake Hand Ass Pinch Prank“. The video, which has since been removed, featured Pepper as he approached women on the street and asked them for directions. While they were distracted, he pinched them on the ass, only to then blame the action on a “fake hand” he was carrying around with him. As soon as Pepper’s video hit the Internet, it quickly drew the media’s ire. “It’s disgusting, it’s disrespectful, it’s gross and it’s ASSAULT,”…

    Jack Vale‘s social media “experiments” succeed at both entertaining audiences and warning strangers about the content they share on their online profiles. Now, that format has become popular enough to make it onto late night TV. Vale has teamed up with Jimmy Kimmel Live and Chevrolet for a series of pranks where he gathers information on strangers while driving around in a shiny new car. The Kimmel pranks work similarly to the ones that previously claimed millions of views on Vale’s channels. Armed with a phone and a Chevy Equinox (which, as viewers are told several…

  • The Importance of Sound in Film & Video [Video]

    Eric Dye
    23 Sep 2014 | 5:00 am
    Never underestimate the power of sound. One of the first days of taking video production class back in college, we learned about the importance of sound. It seemed silly as a naive college student learning the ropes of mass media. Why are we learning about sound in a video production class? Here’s probably the most #EPIC example: Doesn’t seem silly anymore, does it? As a sound guy it’s easy for me to love and appreciate the power of sound design. I often get frustrated with videographers who are so obsessed with getting ‘just the right shot’ and tweaking their…

    There is no shortage of tablet cases. From shock protection to keyboards to portfolios with notepads. The options are endless. Not to mention all the color combinations. Having owned the iPad 2 and now an iPad mini, one thing I struggled to find was an adequate solution for using the device on a desk. For a couple of months I’ve used the ZAGG folio keyboard case and despite the small keys it works really well.

  • Fanboys and the Church

    Chris Wilson
    22 Sep 2014 | 7:00 am
    This morning I woke up to the aftermath of Apple’s latest event. On the one hand, you had people crying “Android had it first” and the other “look at this great new feature. It’s better than the Android version (where relevant)”. Sometimes it was in good fun, most of the time it was preaching to the choir and unfortunately it was occasionally vicious and bitter. This fanboyism made me think about the church and how we can sometimes be like this. Why Do Fanboys Exist It’s easy to criticise the blind fanboys, but they are really everywhere in all aspects of life. The football fan…

    21 Sep 2014 | 9:00 pm
    (California Institute of Technology) Although the heart beats out a very familiar 'lub-dub' pattern that speeds up or slows down as our activity increases or decreases, the pattern itself isn't as regular as you might think. In fact, the amount of time between heartbeats can vary even at a 'constant' heart rate -- and that variability, doctors have found, is a good thing.

There are now 2 active connections to this console” Or… “Unable to connect to the MKS: Console access to the virtual machine cannot be granted since the connection limit of ‘x’ has been reached.”  (This second one is most likely to come up when you have either a STIG or security defined limitation to the number of remote connections to use, thus by default you’re more likely to see message #1!)

    The crew at ThinkComputers had a ot of nice stuff to say about the Sapphire R9 285 Dual-X OC they just reviewed. AMD recently announced their Radeon R9 285 graphics card, this was their first major graphics card announcement since the R9 295X2 back in April. Looking at the naming of the card we expect it to be a replacement for the R9 280, but is it really? It has the same number of shaders, TMUs, and ROPs as the R9 280, but has a narrower memory bus at 256bit (vs 364bit of R9 280X) and less VRAM (2 GB vs 3 GB), although that memory is clocked higher (5.5 GHz vs 5.0 GHz).

If your privacy is something you’re lenient with or if you belong to the group who think that the breach of privacy is something serious, or among the people who think protecting their privacy is a big deal, this article will help you understand just why you need to guard your confidentiality and also help you dispel a few myths about the thing that have probably been nagging your mind.

  • The Role of the Reflective IS Scholar-Practitioner

    1 Sep 2014 | 3:55 pm
    While there will always be a demand for competent Information Systems (IS) professionals, let’s face it: in this economy, competence isn’t good enough. It’s the merely competent who will get the pink slips when the bottom line demands payroll cuts. The real plum jobs, the kind that provide tenure for those supercompetents who practice them well, are those that have more far-reaching implications than a simple ability to maintain the servers and keep the databases in order. One way to achieve this pinnacle of success is to become a reflective IS scholar-practitioner. What…

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

    9 Sep 2014 | 12:57 pm
    iPhone 6 launched today, apparently the "Biggest Advancement" in iPhone history. In 2010 we made some predictions about iPhone 6 specs based on a Moore's Law progression (see chart above, written in 2010 - as a commentator notes, 2010 "Hot PC's" had gone up a few notches too by 2014), we thought it would be interesting to go back to that - we were estimating it would: - Launch in 2014 (got that right) - 4Ghz processor (actual apparently 25% faster than the 1 GHz processor in the iPhone 5) - 2 Gb RAM (not yet known but unlikely to be 4Ghz) - 256 GB Memory (currently only 128, same as iPhone 5)…

A judge in Spain ruled that Brett and Naghmeh King must be held [in custody] for up to 72 hours while the court considers whether to grant a British extradition request. The couple, who were arrested in Spain after the five-year-old was taken from a UK hospital without doctors' consent, told the judge in…

Well, in ths case it was an open secret the system was compromised- Business Insider: The ability to gain access to Apple's iCloud accounts has been an open secret among users of porn message boards for years, with enterprising users charging others to "rip" accounts and share nude photos. But even if it was not an open secret, from an information security point of view data in Cloud systems is a nightmare compared to data on your own systems.

  • School Claims Teen's Writing About Marijuana Use Is 'Drug Possession'

    Tim Cushing

    The latest illegal high to hit high schools? Writing about drug use. Last May, a teenager was punished with a lengthy suspension after teachers discovered her folder which contained stories with references to marijuana use. Her father is now speaking out and appealing the school’s decision. Tom Grayhorse, father of Krystal Grayhorse, told Ozarks First that he was called by Buffalo High School’s assistant principal after staff found Krystal’s folder containing the stories at the school and were “alarmed by the contents of the notebook.” “She wrote about…
  • Internal Emails Show Harris Corp. Misled The FCC On Stingray Device Usage In Order To Receive Approval

    Tim Cushing
    23 Sep 2014 | 3:57 am
    Harris Corporation's Stingray cell tower spoofers are swiftly becoming synonymous with government lying. The FBI has specifically instructed law enforcement agencies to lie about the use of these products, which basically puts the agencies in the position of lying to courts when producing evidence or securing warrants. Law enforcement agencies would probably lie anyway, even without the federal government's nudge. Many chose to read the restrictive non-disclosure agreements Harris includes as meaning they should withhold this information from local courts -- rather than simply seal the…
  • Technology Improves And The Internet Expands But School Acceptable Use Policies Still Lock Students Out Of The Benefits

    23 Sep 2014 | 12:51 am
    Few entities approach new advances in technology with more foreboding than school administrations. What could be used as portals to a nearly-infinite supply of information via the internet is often neutered into uselessness by schools' acceptable use policies (AUP). Several months back, the Los Angeles Unified School District shelled out $500 million on iPads for its students. Within a week of the first deployment, the schools were already repossessing the devices. Students found that the new tool was aggressively limited by school-installed software that turned the Information Superhighway…
  • Could Taking A Selfie In A Museum Violate Copyright Law?

    Mike Masnick
    22 Sep 2014 | 8:44 pm
    Copyright infringement is everywhere. A few years back, John Tehranian wrote a paper (and then a book*) called "Infringement Nation" about just how much copyright infringement happens incidentally on a daily basis. The conclusion, from a back of the envelope estimate, is that an average person is likely liable for $4.544 billion in incidental infringement in a normal year. And that's not for sharing music and movies and what not, but just doing the normal everyday things you do. With the news that the National Gallery in the UK has rescinded its long-standing "no photographs" rule, it appears…
  • DailyDirt: Genetic Information Is Everywhere Now

    The costs of analyzing DNA have come down significantly over time, so it's becoming increasingly common to sequence DNA and discover all kinds of biological curiosities. It's not quite as fast and easy as they make it look on detective shows on TV, but DNA analysis has made some pretty amazing advances. Here are just a few examples of genetic testing that you might have missed. It's actually not that uncommon to find people who are chimeras -- individuals with multiple genomes in their bodies. Twins can end up with a mixture of blood types that co-exist in their veins. Nearly all mothers…

    From Wikipedia: culture: the capacity to classify and encode human experiences symbolically, and to communicate symbolically encoded experiences socially This traditional definition of “culture” – not the only currently operative one, but one still prevalent in much discourse on practices in everyday life – is obviously problematic where the inclusion of nonhuman subjects (and human subjects incapable of sending messages or indicating their understanding of them) is presumed, or even merely contemplated. If one cannot signify, one might argue, one therefore cannot be…

    21 Feb 2014 | 6:10 pm
    Looks like Voltage may obtain subscriber info in Canada from Teksavvy, but not without court oversight and privacy protections for people accused of infringement. Still, this was just a motion. The demand letters may roll out soon, but this litigation might prove to be unprofitable, given the tone and language of the judgement. This could play out in many different ways. I’ve long suspected that this case is merely a demo tape for a sweep of a much larger number of suspected infringing IP addresses assigned to the major ISPs. Time will tell if Canada proves at all to be a jurisdiction…

Well, there is a time limit on these things, and I’m currently at a half time teaching load. Despite how unpleasant I find this precarity (and there’s reason to suspect it might carry on beyond my graduation later this year), and without getting into the anguish of detail on this count, I’m looking on the bright side, which is that right now my time is freed up a bit for writing.

    It has been a learning experience moving my 8 domains (including this one) from a ~$10/month hosting service* to a home server built on the Raspberry Pi. Not counting the small amount of time in labour (possibly 8 hours of learning/testing/configuring things, as I am a novice Apache tinkerer**), I will see savings before 2014 is up. The annual cost of virtual hosting with a hosting company, with a decent Linux server, software installation, full on access to mod-rewrite, unlimited MySQL, etc is ~$135.

    According to Hong Tan who is a senior researcher at Microsoft Research Asia, we should not limit ourselves only to sliding across and tapping our fingers on the screen for interaction with others through tablets or smartphones.

    Caroline Prince

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

They conclude: Despite my concerns, iOS 8 makes me feel excited for the future more than anything else. Apple's steps to open up more options for customization by developers and users on iOS marks a significant departure from their previous releases. It's not Android but it isn't meant to be. It brings new features and capabilities that are implemented in a very Apple-like manner, for better or for worse. I don't think it's going to do much to sway…

    22 Sep 2014 | 3:09 pm
    Chris Nacca has posted an interesting video, in which the startup times of applications are compared between a Nexus 5 (released about a year ago) and the brand new iPhone 6. As you can see in the video, application startup times are essentially the same between the two devices, and in both cases, applications open very quickly. This raises an interesting question, more so because of this article I read on The Verge today, about some guy who was very depressed about his brand new iPhone 6 Plus because he couldn't use it with one hand. Aside from two obvious points - one, you have two hands,…

    Google has gone to valiant lengths to convince us that rumors of Google+’s demise have been greatly exaggerated, but Google is no longer forcing new Gmail users to connect their account to a Google+ profile - yet another move that could signal the end for Google’s troubled social network. I think I speak for all of us when I say - well, nice of them to do something Google+-related right for a change. In all seriousness - nobody asked for Google+, nobody wanted it, and virtually everyone hated it, and it does not solve any actual problem anyone had with Google products. It doesn't…

    Vine has been around for a couple of years, but it seems to be gaining some traction, or perhaps that’s just because I’m seeing people use it differently than before. (Translation: Cats). As it’s owned by Twitter, Vine is not going anywhere, even if it’s not going anywhere, if you know what I mean. However, recently the app was beefed up a bit with some new edit features added that make it more compelling (and fun) to use.

You can sign-in with your Gmail account and compose emails using the WYSIWYG editor, or if you are comfortable with code, switch to the HTML mode and write messages in HTML and CSS directly. The HTML Mail app sends emails using your own Gmail account but unlike the previous versions, it does not require full access to your Google Account.

Here’s a sample GIF created from a SlidShare presentation on Steve Jobs.

    It is now easier than ever before to sell your music to a worldwide audience. I’ve been a musician since childhood, and while education, travel and then working for a living got in the way of my dream of becoming a guitar hero, I have never given up hope.

    Toshiba’s Tecra C50 series isn’t just any new crop of laptops. The product line also marks a shift in the company’s mission, as Toshiba seeks to broaden its business footprint. Toshiba announced last week that it was reducing its PC workforce by 900 people, but the company has since clarified that its “U.S. consumer business will remain intact and we will continue our focus on both the consumer and enterprise markets.” In a conversation with Cindy Zwerling, the product marketing manager for Toshiba’s new Business Solution Division, I learned the PC manufacturer intends to redouble…
  • Massive Steam 'Discovery update' makes it easier to find games you actually want

    23 Sep 2014 | 4:37 am
    "A smarter storefront, personalized just for you." That's the tagline for Valve's new "Steam Discovery" update, which is the first major overhaul to the PC games storefront since the addition of Big Picture Mode back in 2012. Steam Discovery is about...well, discovery. Ever since Steam Greenlight turned the once meticulously curated storefront into a morass of I-don't-even-know-what-the-heck-this-is-since-it-barely-even-works, it's been harder and harder to separate out what's worth playing. Plus with over 3,700 games on Steam, there's quite a back catalog waiting for you to delve into.To…

    Data in its most raw form starts as an infinite, formless river of facts and figures, but with increased mobile adoption, workers in the enterprise are demanding beautiful data that’s consistent with the user experience they’ve come to expect from their non-enterprise apps. While Excel has been the go-to tool to transform tables into charts and make sense of raw data – it’s main limitation is the freshness of the data. By the time it reaches the business users, the info is stale. With more workers spending time on their mobile devices, it only makes sense for the enterprise to be able…

    Terry White
    22 Sep 2014 | 9:11 pm
    A few weeks ago I posted on my Facebook page asking for recommendations for a new printer. The requirement was that it had to be color and be ready to print when I’m ready to print. In other words I print very infrequently and my frustration with inkjet printers is that some models dry up when not used regularly and take lots of ink just to get the nozzles clean and printing again. My previous office printers had all been Xerox Phaser (dry ink) printers. While these printers have always served me well, it was going to be overkill to get another one as I just don’t print that often…

Of course you could get ANY 3rd party wall charger for half that price or less. However, even at $9 for a good quality generic charger you might want to consider a different option. If you’re buying a charger that’s going to have a permanent home under your desk, behind a nightstand,…

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

  • Revenue Questions

    Alex Goldfayn
    22 Sep 2014 | 5:41 am
    Are you making time for revenue growth? It’s a proactive pursuit. You cannot spend your days reacting to customers’ issues and significantly grow your organization. Are you behaving boldly? Because marketing it no place for modesty. You improve lives and companies. Act like it. Are you asking for testimonials and referrals regularly? These are among the best and easiest ways to grow sales. Are multiple people at your company consistently asking the “Did You Know” question? On average, customers are only aware of about 30 percent of all that they can buy from you.
  • Video: Focus On Your Value, Not Your Products or Services

    Alex Goldfayn
    18 Sep 2014 | 7:41 am
    Focusing on your products and services makes you one of a very large crowd. It commoditizes you. Focusing on your value, and the ways that you improve customers lifts you above the crowd. It makes you singular. It makes you money. These videos are based on my Growth Masters Annual Curriculum, a year-long learning program focused like a laser on growing your revenue!

    I often tell my clients that our work is a behavior change project:we’re trying to get your sales, customer service and marketing people to take one action daily that will communicate your value to people who can buy it. Revenue growth is a learned behavior (I teach it!) that’s made up of several core, critical components. Unfortunately, these mindsets and behaviors are not taught in school. If they were, we’d all be better off. Here’s what I wish they would teach us, and our children, in school:That the simplest solution is almost always the best one. In math and in…

  • Testimonial Pressure

    Alex Goldfayn
    8 Sep 2014 | 3:49 am
    Here’s an “advanced” point that came out of a client workshop last week: when asking for a testimonial, don’t use the word “testimonial,” as it places unnecessary pressure on your customer. Instead, ask for feedback, thoughts, reactions, opinions, etc. “I’m wondering, how would you say you’ve improved since we’ve started working together? What, specifically, has become better?” Same goes for referrals: don’t use the word, which actually decreases the odds of you getting one! Instead, ask for who else your customer knows:…

    Google has offered a handful of proposals in the years-long antitrust probe in Europe to avoid having to pay as much as $6 billion in fines, but continues to have to go back to the drawing board. Earlier this year, it was looking like a settlement was nigh, but ultimately, complainants convinced VP of the European Commission, Joaquin Almunia that Google wasn’t going far enough. Currently, the commission is waiting on the company to come up with yet another revised set of proposals. The commission released its annual competition report.

    You’ve got to hand it to Victoria Gotti. The former “mafia princess” certainly knows how to drop the kind of bombshell that will make reality TV viewers talk. Unfortunately for Teresa Aprea, what Gotti shared about her mother and husband has since become a widely-broadcasted rumor. One that has caused a great deal of personal embarrasment. Weeks ago the Real Housewives Of New Jersey featured a guest appearance by Gotti, who told Amber Marchese and Teresa Giudice that she knew for a fact that Aprea’s husband Rino had an affair with his mother-in-law.

  • Is Carrier Billing on the way for Airtel Users on Android?

    Arpit Verma
    22 Sep 2014 | 5:59 pm
    Plenty has been written, said and discussed about carrier billing and the prospects of the same in India. Indians are known to be wary when making payments online to purchase apps or utilities and as a result would much rather pick up a freebie or even download a pirated copy than complement the developer. As a result, a few years ago Nokia had come up with Carrier Billing, where users could pick things from nokia store and pay it via their carrier credit. This was a popular move all those years ago, but since then has been rolled back with Android and iOS numbers on the rise and their…

    Social Media rejection is perhaps the worst kind of rejection. We have all been privately rejected and not many of us like to own up to it or like to recite it. Yet, a social media rejection is so public that it is humiliating. We have all had that moment where we have just updated a status message or posted a picture and waited hours and hours on end for the first sight of interaction on it. Yet it always happens that none of it whatsoever comes by and you are left there, literally with an egg on your face thinking whether you would be better advised to simply delete the update and save…

    Smartphones today have become the hub of a lot of our personal data.

Given the recent iCloud security breach, one thing that has continuously been talked about is data encryption and how important that is. Obviously the data in iCloud is encrypted and the turn of events were unfortunate, but by default the data on your Android phone or any phone for that matter is not encrypted.

In higher education, the National Retail Federation states that student spending for electronics (tablets, laptops, etc.) is up 20% from last year. There’s no doubt that classrooms are going digital – yet even with the increase in tablets, Chromebooks and other mobile devices, there remains a strong need to print. But printing from these mobile devices can be a challenge – with software downloads and kludgy apps that may or may not be effective. With…

  • How Linking to Knowledge Could Boost News Media

    Frédéric Filloux
    14 Sep 2014 | 11:32 am
    A key way to differentiate value-added news from commodity contents is to rework the notion of linking. Thanks to semantics and APIs, we could move from dumb links to knowledge linking.  Most media organizations are still stuck in version 1.0 of linking. When they produce content, they assign tags and links to mostly internal other contents. This is done out of fear that readers would escape for good if doors were opened too wide. Assigning tags is not exact science: I recently spotted a story about the new pregnancy in the British Royal family; it was tagged “Demography”, as if…
  • Apple Watch Is And Isn’t…

    Jean-Louis Gassée
    14 Sep 2014 | 11:31 am
    The Apple Watch isn’t just another iDevice, a “wearables” accessory to the Apple ecosystem. It’s a bold attempt to create a new kind of wrist-worn personal computer that looks like a smartwatch. In previous Monday Notes dealing with the putative iWatch and other “wearables”, I thought the new product would be a nice add-on to the iDevices ecosystem — a bit player that would make the iPhone more desirable —  but that it wouldn’t move the needle, meaning $10B or more in revenue. I reasoned that a watch battery would be too small to feed a computer powerful enough to offer a…

    This week’s product launch should break the mold of Apple’s recent Fall announcements: More products than usual and a challenge to the status quo – in payment system this time.

      Ten years. That’s how far away in the past the Google IPO lies. Ten years of explosive growth for the digital world, ten gruesome years for legacy media. Here is the lost decade, revisited in charts and numbers.  The asymmetry is staggering. By every measure, the digital sphere grew explosively thanks to a combination of known factors: a massive influx of capital; the radical culture shift fostered by a “blank slate” approach; obsessive agility in search of new preys; flattened hierarchies; shrugged-off acceptance of failure; refocusing on the customer;  a keen sense of…

With work on content well underway – games, movies, interactive adventures – the release of a second development kit brings significant upgrades and represents a giant leap towards the final consumer release in 2015. While the first stage of development was very much a creative phase of figuring out what does and doesn’t work in VR, the second stage is about polishing those concepts to work with new technologies like…

It is quite evident from the fact that most patients need to contribute a good amount of money towards their Medicare payments. While considering employees with health insurance coverage, many employers or insurers require that they cover a greater share of the total medical costs through increased co-payments and deductibles. These out-of pocket costs can be large especially for those patients with chronic medical conditions such as asthma that need regular and timely medical checkups. A new study reveals that low income…

    1E Blogs - Insight and debate on IT Efficiency

  • Actively Efficient

    Dan O'Connor
    22 Sep 2014 | 6:40 am
    22nd September, 2014 marks the launch of new versions of two key pieces of technology. One is a new version of our software waste identification and reclaim product, AppClarity. The other is an update to the architectural platform called ActiveEfficiency (AE) that AppClarity and Shopping currently rely on and Nomad, NightWatchman, and the forthcoming MyWorkNow will come to rely on for major future functionality. Let me start by telling you all a little bit about what Active Efficiency is, and why we at 1E have taken the strategic move to use the architecture and future kingpin in our…
  • How does Nomad determine network bandwidth and protect your network? Ping? Nope. Try Reverse QoS instead

    Troy Martin
    17 Sep 2014 | 3:36 am
    Network Ping, DiffServ, QoS or something special? There are lots of ways to calculate network bandwidth. A network ping can determine WAN speed but this is not ideal as many organizations disable ICMP for many security reasons. Windows firewall alone blocks a lot of ping traffic by default due to the inherent security issues that can be associated by it. DiffServ can give good Quality of Service (QoS) but requires hardware investment that can utilize this technology not to mention some solutions leveraging this technology only calculates QoS on edge routers. This may be okay for route…

  • Students on the Lookout – work from anywhere

    Simon Rust
    12 Sep 2014 | 2:10 am
    A few years ago, I was a student in higher education working towards my degree in Computer Science. I almost immediately found that the biggest issue I had was having to go to the university to find a computer to run my tests or to write documentation. I was developing in Turbo Pascal or C or, worse still, access to COBOL (yes, I’m showing my age). It didn’t take long before I was finding the cash to buy myself a home PC. My chosen weapon was a slimline 386 sx25 with a 40Mb HDD and 2Mb of RAM. This was around $2,000 and rather rapidly required both a larger HDD and RAM (6Mb RAM cost…

    Just finished another ICT-related technical assistance visit with a developing country government. Even in mid-2014, I spend a large amount of time teaching basic principles of enterprise architecture, and the need for adding form and structure to ICT strategies.

    30 Aug 2013 | 6:31 pm
    Normally, when we think of technical-related training, images of rooms loaded with switches, routers, and servers might come to mind.    Cloud computing is different.  In reality, cloud computing is not a technology, but rather a framework employing a variety of technologies – most notably virtualization, to solve business problems or enable opportunities. From our own practice, the majority of cloud training students represent non-technical careers and positions. Our training does follow the CompTIA Cloud Essentials course criterion, and is not a technical course, so the non-technical…

As I organized my vast array of remote controls on the coffee table, I was blissfully unaware of any issues. That was the case until my wife just wanted to watch a movie one night while I was gone, and she had a conniption fit trying to figure everything out. There was no way she was going to invest the time to learn what to power up, and what…

    In skiing, the “black diamond” run or ski slope is often referred to as “high risk/high reward.” You receive lots of “reward” skiing the black diamond slopes, but you have a significant amount of “risk” associated with variable terrain, such as the presence of trees and the possibility of injury. However, the black diamond slopes are very fun to experience, and you can mitigate the risks with preparation, practice, and a really good skiing helmet. Data science is one of those “high risk/high reward” concepts in technology. An organization can gain huge financial rewards by…

Disk storage costs have fallen from over $1,000 per GB to under $.10 per GB with 4TB SATA drives.

    Most designers, at least the ones I know, hate to network and rarely do it. The key to networking in the tech world is you do not need to be the best in the world, you just need to be passionate, willing to learn and in a lot of cases be the best designer or developer that people know. Reach out to people you want to meet If you looking for employment at a company or just wanting to expand your connections, don’t be afraid to email or tweet someone and see if they want to go for a coffee or a beer.

    Smartwatches are the rage and every manufacturer has either entered or is gearing up for this race. After Samsung & Sony failed to tap this trend with their first generation products (that ran their own software renditions), Google created Android Wear — a unified smartwatch OS. The Samsung Gear Live and the LG G watch were the first Android Wear devices. The Moto 360, after months of teasing, has finally hit the shelves.

Y'all recycle so much old material from briefs and other documents, it puts Ed Begley, Jr. to shame. Some of the problems with all that cutting and pasting are pretty obvious: another client's name being left in (oops) or funky formatting that doesn't match the new document. But others aren't.

    31 Aug 2014 | 12:35 pm
    When I first switched from Windows 7 to Windows 8. One of the first things I noticed was that even I was running Internet Explorer 11 on both operating systems, spelling control was not working the same way in IE 11 on Windows 8/Windows 8.1. In Windows 7 I was used to right click on a misspelled word and chance the language in case I was writing in another language in my default. In Windows 8 that is not the possible. My default language is Danish, but I often write in English as well. It toke me quite some time to figure out how I could get it to work in Windows 8, because I think it is a…

  • How to Fix no Audio Issues with FaceTime Video on iPhone 6

    21 Sep 2014 | 9:16 am
    If you are making a FaceTime call on your brand new iPhone 6, and the other party is not able to hear you properly, it is quite likely that you have not taken the plastic wrap off the phone. The noise cancellation microphone between the camera and the flash is covered with the plastic wrap on a new iPhone 6. This causes the iPhone’s noise canceling algorithm to malfunction when you make a FaceTime call (or any call with the speakerphone on). In order to fix this issue, just take the plastic wrap off, or, if you don’t want to take it off until you get a case (totally understandable), use a…
  • Contract Free iPhone 6 is Factory Unlocked

    21 Sep 2014 | 8:56 am
    This year, Apple is selling a contract free iPhone 6 from day 1 of its launch in the US. This contract free iPhone comes bundled with a T mobile sim card which is creating a lot of confusion about whether the phone will be locked to the T mobile network. Apple support executives are further adding to the confusion by saying that only T mobile customer care can confirm this. And T mobile reps say that one has to get unlock codes from them to unlock the any phone on their network, however, they are not 100% sure about the iPhone 6. I bought a contract free T mobile iPhone 6 on launch day and…
  • This is the Apple Watch

    In addition to launching the iPhone 6, Apple also introduced its brand new product line – the Apple Watch. The Apple watch is a wearable device which comes in 2 sizes – 38mm and 42mm. The crown, or as apple calls it – digital crown, is the new way of interacting with the watch without blocking the screen. The watch also offers a touch screen – so don’t worry, you are covered there. The touch screen is an advanced capacitive & resistive screen which can differentiate between a tap and a press.

  • The New Pinterest Analytics Is More Robust than Twitter’s

    Denae Olberding
    17 Sep 2014 | 1:23 pm
    Pinterest is sometimes viewed as the latecomer on the social media scene. By all rights the platform’s visual focus should have made it an overnight success story, but it often takes a back seat to Facebook, Twitter, and even smaller platforms like Tumblr. But Pinterest has proven itself a top performer for businesses that take the time to learn to use it well. Now Pinterest is making its network even more valuable to businesses, with the unveiling last week of an expanded and upgraded analytics feature. Like the similar unveil from Twitter two weeks ago, the move is clearly meant to…

  • 5-Star Rating Yanked by Yelp? Court Says It’s OK

    Dave Paul
    15 Sep 2014 | 12:12 pm
    How much would you pay for a 5-star rating on Yelp? How about to make those bad reviews go away? So far, Yelp hasn’t officially offered anything of the sort—but a court decision earlier this month says they can if they want to. Yelp was taken to court in California on allegations that it was “extorting” business owners by pressuring them to pay for good ratings. Yelp denies the allegation, but apparently it needn’t worry: the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals says that fixing ratings is fair play. That surprises many business owners. Yelp has become perhaps the biggest destination…
  • Google’s HTTPS Incentive Is Little Incentive At All

    Dave Paul
    5 Sep 2014 | 8:01 am
    Want to get more traffic for your website? How about investing in costly web encryption that you don’t actually need? That’s the proposition that Google put forward last month, when it announced an incentive for site owners to switch to HTTPS (hypertext transfer protocol secure). For the record, HTTPS is the more-secure form of the familiar HTTP, the protocol that transfers data over the web. Right now the majority of websites don’t use HTTPS because they don’t need it, but Google says it’s now using HTTPS as a signal in search ranking algorithms. In other words, make the switch and…
  • Google Authorship Comes to a Crashing Halt

    Dave Paul
    29 Aug 2014 | 12:54 pm
    Yesterday Google announced the end of its great Google Authorship experiment as it relates to search results. Author snippets won’t be shown on SERPs and authorship markup will not weigh in search ranking, effective immediately. Authorship has had a mixed history. While Google was interested in the idea as far back as 2007, it was only with the launch of Google+ that it gained any traction. Suddenly, authors could link all their work back to a single Plus profile and get credit across the web. But the victory was short-lived: by 2013 Google reduced how many author snippets it showed per…

    Jillian D'Onfro

    Google sometimes receives as many as 50,000 resumes in a single week.  For the select number of applicants that actually make it to an interview, they'll be graded on a very specific list of criteria, no matter what position they're applying for. In the new book "How Google Works," executive chairman and former CEO Eric Schmidt and former SVP of product Jonathan Rosenberg highlight the four characteristics that each candidate gets graded on (Google scores interview candidates overall on a scale of one to four).  Here's what every wanna-be Googler is judged upon: 1.

    23 Sep 2014 | 5:02 am
    Here's a funny moment at the end of Bloomberg Businessweek's interview with Apple CEO Tim Cook.  Cook is talking about products that Apple has tried, then put on the shelf,  which leads to a question about Apple TV. Apple's PR rep steps in to end the interview. We doubt Cook would have said anything, but it's still amusing to read: Bloomberg Businessweek: ...But, you know, the problem with smartwatches so far has been that people wear them for a bit and then put them on the shelf because they’re not adding enough utility. So the Apple Watch might be the breakthrough? Tim Cook:…
  • Here's Why Apple Didn't Use An 'Unbreakable' Sapphire Screen For The iPhone 6 (AAPL)

    Jay Yarow
    23 Sep 2014 | 4:42 am
    Before Apple released the iPhone 6, multiple reports/rumors indicated it would come with a sapphire-based screen.  Sapphire, according to various accounts, is a wonder material that doesn't scratch. It was also believed to be unbreakable. The current iPhone uses Corning's Gorilla Glass, which is fairly scratchproof but not as good as sapphire. An unbreakable iPhone would be a godsend. (There are two things people really want from an iPhone — long battery life and an unbreakable screen.)  Unfortunately, it seems all the reports on Apple delivering an unbreakable iPhone were…

    Apple has released two new ads for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus starring musician Justin Timberlake and Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon, according to Apple Insider. The first commercial refers to the size of the devices, concentrating on their 4.7 inch and the 5.5 inch screens. The joke in the ads is that Fallon attempts to list the specs and functions of the new phones, while Timberlake obsesses over how "huge" they are. Here’s the first one: The second ad focuses on the cameras of the new phones, referring to their slow motion and time lapse video functions: The new adverts come two weeks…

    Happy birthday Malaysia!! Just how awesome is our country, that we celebrate an Independence Day AND a Malaysia Day, not to mention 2 New years day, (or 3 if you count Awal Muharram). So on that note, I decided to use my IT skills for the good of the country. To be honest, my IT skills have never been up to par, my day job is more managing/planning/documenting than actual execution of ‘real’ IT work.

  • Is Malaysia’s Broadband slow–no it isn’t.

    Keith Rozario
    14 Sep 2014 | 8:31 am
    Recently KiniBiz did a piece on Malaysian broadband speeds, and once again the hoopla about how Malaysian broadband speeds are slow arose. Kinibiz quoted an article from Asean DNA which stated that the average broadband speed in Malaysia was just 5.5 Mbps, while Thailand, Vietnam and Singapore had speeds that were double that (or more!) The report however was inaccurate, and I think there’s a need to address the hoopla, because this happens often. There was a report couple months back that said Cambodia had faster speeds than Malaysia, and I wrote a post addressing that. This time I…
  • A Techie’s view on the Law

    Keith Rozario
    8 Sep 2014 | 7:30 am
    Are some laws worth following–in other words, are some Laws so idiotic that they should be ignored completely? That sounds anathema, because we have a romanticized definition of the law, we define the Law as a broad general agreement a society undertakes, and the law keeps society from tearing itself apart. In other words, the law is so sacred because without it–we descend into anarchy, so ignoring the law is akin to promoting anarchy. But I’m not speaking of “The Law”, I’m speaking of “A law”, specifically an Act of Parliament. “The…

Here’s one more reason, recently they alerted me to a suspicious number of login attempts to my wordpress site, which usually means someone was trying to hack it. If you remember the post I did about the RHB bank scam, it’s quite common for hackers to inject pages onto a wordpress site to help them carry out banking scams. This was probably something similar. Fortunately, the guys over at nearlyfreespeech were not just kind enough to log the attempts and alert me, but even…

    Uber, a company that connect passengers with drivers of vehicles for hire and ridesharing services–is now banned in Malaysia. The Uber service was viewed as a god-send by citizens of KL simply because the existing taxi service in the city–is Shit! So why did the Government choose to ban a service, that was improving public transport in KL? For the small matter that it violated a couple of laws–no big deal really. Laws are made to be broken aren’t they? There’s no need to go into the details of whether Uber is legal or illegal, that’s an irrelevant point.

So how do you improve on an already outstanding product without taking the pricing to a new level?. One way was to add more features to the product. So Audioengine added a DAC…

    If we continue to tolerate this form of “entertainment”, before we know it, our society would be watching live porn right before their eyes and be so completely blinded and numbed by the media to see it as harmless amusement. Heck, it’s happening now—a lot of people aren’t even able to tell what can harm us as a society with the kind of sex-obsessed culture we are creating. We’re becoming more and more reckless, not considering the values we impart to the youth who will be left to run this world when the future comes. Is this what marketing has come to?

    What’s the best way for content marketers to determine if their efforts are successful?  Impressions? Comments? Likes? Downloads? A sale? Panelists at the “Don’t Run Out of Gas! How to Fuel a Sustainable Content Marketing Strategy” session at Content Marketing World 2014 warned that the key performance indicators (KPIs) you’ve been focused on might be the wrong ones. “One of the pitfalls [of content marketing] is trying to have an immediate sale,” said Nicole Smith, Managing Editor for Dell’s community. “It’s not very realistic.” Instead, content…

    “Your Baby is Ugly – Rapid Fire Live Landing Page Critiques” The title of this session at Content Marketing World 2014 snagged my attention, and I got exactly what was advertised. It was the best. Tim Ash, author of Landing Page Optimization, was rude, he was crude, and he gave a ton of quick tips to improve the audience’s landing pages that I will share in a forthcoming post. It was easily the most entertaining and helpful hour of the week. There were plenty of panel sessions that I attended at CM World 2014 where the presenters spoke in broad terms about themselves and gave the…

    By default, the My Documents folder is located in Windows XP and Windows Vista is located on the same drive or partition as the operating system. This is fine for anyone who has only a single drive or a single partition on their computers, such as the C drive, but if you have more than one physical or logical drive on your computer, it’s best to move your My Documents folder off the system drive. In Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, the situation is a bit different. In Windows 7, you have libraries, which are kind of virtual folders that basically link to other folders that can be located…

Of course, it’s fun to joke about it… but dealing with hellish clients is actually serious as… well hell!

  • How to Get Your First Web Design Client (Step #2 is especially important)

    John Morris
    12 Aug 2014 | 6:54 am
    Getting your first PAID web design client is the most important action you can take for your coding career… whether you plan to be a freelance web designer long-term or not. It’s THAT important because it immediately makes everything much more clear: You see if you actually like coding You figure out what your clients expect from you You understand what to charge and why And, most importantly… you gain CONFIDENCE. You get to see first-hand that people WILL pay you money to code for them and that you CAN deliver. On the flip side, NOT getting your first client leaves…
  • How to Position Yourself to Get More Freelance Jobs

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

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

  • How Does Public Key Encryption Work?

    Miguel Leiva-Gomez
    22 Sep 2014 | 4:25 pm
    For many, security remains a mystery that is better left to the professionals. It has been seen as too complex for the layperson to explore or fully understand. While diving into the math of some of the most complex algorithms can be a daunting task, the essence of what makes all of these algorithms work isn’t necessarily out of anyone’s reach. Instead of looking at the minute details of cryptography that most people find either boring or overwhelming, we can look at the concepts that make up public key encryption so that we may understand completely what exactly is protecting us…
  • How to Use Android Wear Part 1: Navigating the UI

    Bertel King, Jr.
    22 Sep 2014 | 2:25 pm
    Smartwatches don’t provide the screen space that smartphones do, so with its approach to the form factor, Google decided to create an experience that is fundamentally different. Android Wear devices are designed to supplement smartphone usage, not replace it. This means you won’t be able to do most of the things on your watch that they can do on your phone. This also means you can’t interact with it the same way either. Android Wear’s UI is an entirely different beast from regular Android, so here’s a primer on how to navigate your way around it.1.

    22 Sep 2014 | 10:25 am
    As we own more and more gadgets, like phones, laptops, phablets, and tablets (7-inches and 10-inches), a new problem arises – the difficulty of bringing them around. When you are going for a meeting, do you just bring a small bag for your tablet or a big bag that can contain both your laptop and tablet? What about when you are travelling? You need to bring the power cable, and adaptor along with your laptop, and these items can easily fill up the whole bag. Instead of having multiple bags for carrying different gadgets, how about one single transformer bag that can transform itself for…
  • How to Encode H.265 Video Using ffmpeg on Linux

    Gary Sims
    22 Sep 2014 | 1:27 am
    Almost all the video we watch, over digital terrestrial TV, over cable, from satellite, or over the Internet, is compressed. Raw, uncompressed video is just too big and would waste too much bandwidth. Way back before DVD and Blu-ray, there was the Video CD (VCD). It was the first format used to commercially distribute films on standard 120 mm (4.7 inch) optical discs. The video on the discs was encoded in MPEG-1, a lossy compression format designed for streaming video data at 1.5 Mbit/s. Probably the best known component of the MPEG-1 standard was its audio compression format. Officially…

    Michael Cowling, Senior Lecturer &amp; Discipline Leader, Mobile Computing &amp; Applications at Central Queensland University
    22 Sep 2014 | 8:56 pm
    Android and Apple looking to expand into new markets in India and China. Flickr/Aidan, CC BYHas Google finally decided to take total control of its Android destiny with the release of its Android One operating system? Aimed at “emerging markets”, such as India, Google will operate the smartphone device rather than handing over to hardware partners such as Samsung and HTC. Historically, Google has taken a hands-off approach to Android, providing it “free” to manufacturers as an open source product. Samsung and HTC smartphones use their own versions of Google’s Android OS.

The equinox is a midpoint. It’s around now that day and night become equal in length (but more about that later). It’s also around the equinox that the sun does what we think it always does - it rises due east and sets due west. And at the equinox the sun’s path sits mid-way between the extremes of summer and winter, as marked by the solstices. A moment in time But the equinox itself is a specific…

We tend to crave these rich, tasty foods not only when we are hungry, but when we are emotional, bored, or stressed out.

This goes for sports teams, business divisions, vehicles, and most anything else in life where multiple links make up the entity at large. It shouldn't be surprising that IT systems and networks follow the same logic. Yet this very notion is what causes me to cringe when in discussions with new and existing clients. There is a large disconnect when it comes to the average small business owner, as to what technical improvements will actually lead to better stability and…

Apple's other new flagship, the smaller iPhone 6, has also registered impressive results, but its 4.7-inch panel is let down by the low resolution of just 750 by 1,334, which is inferior to that of its bigger brother -- which boasts a 1,080 by…

What you may not have noticed, however, was the flag signal system that was in place. Singapore made history back in 2008 by becoming Formula One's first-ever night race and with this came the obvious issue of how the drivers would see the flags traditionally used by marshals to communicate with the drivers.

Still, writers would pay thousands of dollars for this option if they were not able to find a publishing company.

    There are many ingredients that go into building a company: hard work, emotional fortitude, agility, willingness to take risks, fanatical commitment to driving customer value, ability to execute in the face of ambiguity, and more. But there is one ingredient that often gets overlooked: an ability to will something to happen. If entrepreneurship is the creation of something from nothing, that process starts with a belief the something can be made to happen. What is often started by the willpower of a single individual, can only expand by surrounding yourself with committed and like-minded…

Steve took home our top prize for his work on internal customer reporting, which received lots of cheers, the loudest of which came from our solution architects.

But unlike everyone else in Boston, I wasn’t looking for a list of names to call. Instead I wanted to get a sense of the talent density at this company. Talent density works like this: high quality engineers prefer to work with other high quality engineers. The result is that good engineers typically be found in clusters. This is true for the companies for which they…

I also appreciate their near maniacal focus on the customer, their organizational productivity at scale, the commitment to being a technology company, and their willingness to take risks. But they did something even better that will forever endear me to them: they eliminated my need to ever touch physical server and storage infrastructure again. ;) But there is one side of Amazon for which I’m not a fan: their secretive side.

    I’m not a big fan of competitive analysis. While I generally know the high-level value of different products in a market, you’re unlikely to find me taking a deep dive into a competitive product. This is a change from a decade ago, when I was convinced a key component to success was knowing the competitive market as well as I knew my own product. I used to spend hours at SilverBack analyzing a competitor’s website, talking to their current and former customers, and sitting through demos. But over the last decade I stopped focusing on competitors for two simple reason: It distracted…
