    You may not have seen them yet, but if you look closely, drones are here. They’re everywhere. And it’s just the beginning. While the military has been using drones since the 1970s, it was arguably Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’ December 2013 announcement of his company’s plan to offer 30 minute product deliveries via drones that brought them to the mainstream. Whether or not such a delivery service pans out is less important than the buzz (no pun intended) it created – as a kickstart for the drone industry.

    18 Dec 2014 | 12:55 pm
    Excessive exposure to sunlight is the leading cause of skin deterioration, causing it to age prematurely. We need some exposure, however, in order to synthesize vitamin D – plus who wants to stay in the shade all the time? Using a good sunscreen definitely helps, although scientists from the University of British Columbia are taking things a step farther – they're developing a drug that could ultimately prevent the sunlight-related aging of skin. ..

Though cable-free technology for guitar players has been around in one form or another for a good many years, reliability and affordability issues have meant that many players choose to be cabled to an amp.

  • DailyDirt: Winning A Nobel Prize And Thinking Differently

    Michael Ho
    18 Dec 2014 | 5:00 pm
    A fairly sizable list of Nobel laureates suffer from Nobel disease -- a phenomenon in which respected scientists publicly espouse somewhat crazy ideas. Perhaps just being famous also causes this affliction...? Or maybe there should be more research on this topic, worthy of an Ig Nobel award. In any case, here are a few links on some Nobel prize winners that demonstrate these people are still human. Nobel laureate James Watson, famous for eludicating the helical structure of DNA, recently auctioned off his medal for over $4 million. The winning bid came from Russian billionaire Alisher Usmanov…

    It seems like there are so many police-behaving-badly stories that have come out recently, it's no longer all that noteworthy. Mind you, I don't know that the policing situation is generally actually getting worse, as it might seem, or if there is just simply a greater willingness to shine a spotlight in some very uncomfortable places within our own society. That said, what does remain interesting is watching how police around the country react to this spotlight. Watching the unfortunate reactions to athletes showing support for protesters, for instance, would be hysterical if it weren't so…
  • Myriad Loses Again: Patents On Genetic Testing Ruled Invalid

    Glyn Moody
    18 Dec 2014 | 2:44 pm
    Back in 2013, the Supreme Court struck down patents that Myriad Genetics had obtained on naturally-occuring DNA sequences linked to breast cancer. As a result of that judgment, other companies started offering diagnostic tests based on the genes in question. Myriad claimed that despite losing patents on the DNA, its patents on tests based on that DNA were still valid, and took legal action to stop others from offering similar services. As we reported earlier this year, a federal district court judge refused to grant Myriad a preliminary injunction against one of those new entrants, and now…

Sony executives tacitly agreed to the cancellations but it's not clear whether they have axed the movie's Christmas debut.

    Sony Pictures Entertainment now faces two lawsuits from four former employees who claim the company did not do enough to prevent hackers from stealing nearly 50,000 social security numbers, salary details and other personal information from current and former workers.

  • Disruption's Winners and Losers in 2015

    18 Dec 2014 | 7:18 am
    Think major industries have been disrupted a lot already? Just wait. A new report makes the case that 2015 promises to be the year that long-developing trends and already existing technologies finally upend conventional ways of doing business, posing threats to powerhouse brands like DirecTV and Coca-Cola. New York market research firm S&P Capital IQ said that unusually momentous changes in technology and consumer behavior, among other things, could contribute to a turbulent year in the U.S. economy, one that will produce as many winners as losers. In media, for instance, a critical mass of…
  • Identity Theft Victims Face Months of Hassle

    18 Dec 2014 | 7:18 am
    As soon as Mark Kim found out his personal information was compromised in a data breach at Target last year, the 36-year-old tech worker signed up for the retailer's free credit monitoring offer so he would be notified if someone used his identity to commit fraud. Someone did. The first monitoring report showed crooks opened accounts in his name at Macy's and Kohl's department stores, where they racked up more than $7,000 in charges. "My heart basically sank," he said. Over the next seven months the New York City resident spent hours on the phone, most of a day in a police station filing a…

    The universe has heard your prayers.Your favourite two guilty pleasures – ice cream and wine – have come together in a heavenly fusion that can only be described as dangerously brilliant. This isn’t wine-flavoured ice cream, oh no. This is eight separate flavours of wine-infused, proper ice cream with a butterfat content of 15% and a proof of 5%. That’s right, you can get drunk on ice cream. Breakups will never be the same again. It’s made by Mercer’s Dairy in Boonville, New York – a family company run entirely by women.

    It has been officially announced that the Asus ZenWatch, which launched in the US last month, will be coming to the UK on December 23rd. It’ll cost £199.99 and will be exclusive to Currys/PC World’s online store. The ZenWatch does have the distinction of being one of the few rectangular-faced smartwatches that doesn’t look abysmal. In terms of features, though, it’s fairly similar to a lot of the competition, including a 9-axis sensor and heart-rate monitor for fitness tracking, a 1.68-inch AMOLED display with 320 x 320 resolution, a Snapdragon 400 processor, 512MB…

Now virtual reality is there to simulate it in a way that’s more immersive than ever before. A new easter egg in the Android version of the app lets users activate the virtual reality mode, meaning users who have one of Google’s Cardboard virtual reality headsets can slap it on and tour the world without leaving the house.

  • Yoga’s as good at reducing heart disease risk as aerobic exercise

    Diane Shipley
    18 Dec 2014 | 6:33 am
    A new scientific review of 37 studies involving 2768 subjects has concluded that yoga can be as effective as aerobic exercise in reducing the risk of heart disease. Researchers from America and the Netherlands have published their findings, which they call ‘significant’, in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology this week. Yoga was primarily developed as a spiritual practice in India, where it originated in the fifth or sixth century. In the last few decades, as you might have noticed, it’s been promoted in the west as everything from a way to get skinnier thighs to a tool for…

    Good news! One month on and Assassin’s Creed: Unity might finally be playable… as long as you download a gigantic patch. According to Eurogamer, the patch for the PS4 version is 6.7GB big. It’s almost though the notoriously bugged game wasn’t actually finished. Worse still, for Xbox One players the ‘patch’ clocks in at 40GB (!) – but this itself is apparently a bug, which is forcing consoles to download the entire game. Ubisoft says that it is working with Microsoft to fix this. Apparently a work-around in the meantime is to uninstall the game from…

    Pebble has just released updated software for its smartwatch to add in support for Android Wear notification – supercharging the watch in the process. Despite being the young upstarts, it was perhaps easy to assume that Pebble was under threat by the rise of the Apple Watch and Android Wear, which offer deeper integration with their host operating systems – but it seems Pebble have solved the problem by offering support for the latter platform. This means that now if you’ve got an Android phone you’ll be able to give contextual responses – for example, muting…

According to The Register it will be debuting a car that can not only park itself, but one that can be summoned by smartwatch. The idea is that when you arrive at a meeting you get out, the car goes and parks itself – and then when you’re done it, press a button on your watch and the car will come and pick you up.

    As 2014 winds down, Windows Phone is at a crucial stage in its lifecycle. Again. Earlier in 2014, Microsoft closed the acquisition of Nokia’s hardware division and Windows 10 was launched in a Technical Preview form. Nokia’s acquisition, combined with the upcoming Windows 10-based version of the phone operating system, has perhaps resulted in a slight pause in release of true flagship devices that can compete with the latest versions of competing platforms, the iPhone and Android/Nexus lineup. So, as we look forward to the early 2014 look at the combined Windows RT and Windows…

TDK is showing their first STT-MRAM chip, a 8Mb device, produced on a 8" silicon substrate.  This is the first time TDK exposed their STT-MRAM technology. Those MRAM chips were produced by TDK's Headway Technologies. TDK will not mass poroduce MRAM chips themselves but rather seek a chip-making partner to produce them. But this may take a while: TDK says it could be up to 10 years before the technology matures (earlier reports said TDK…

It was supposed to hit theaters on December 25, but it’s looking like it might not hit theaters at all, let alone our On-Demand services. It sucks, plain and simple, but not because we’re being deprived of a Rogen-Franco blockbuster.

What?! Why aren’t you a VCP? This is a problem which plagues many an Admin who will often be multi-skilled and can justify the $225 price-tag to take the exam but whose employer will NOT pay for you to be away from the office, nor the hefty price tag often associated with the VCP course itself.  Yea, we get that, so what?!

  • My iOS App Picks for 2014 — iOS Photo Apps

    Brad Grier
    15 Dec 2014 | 10:33 am
    I tend to keep my photography over on iPadDarkroom, but since I’m writing about iOS photo apps that I’ve discovered or have dominated my work this year, it seemed fitting to look at apps that have influenced my photo work. You’ve likely seen some work created with these apps before, but they’re worth profiling again as my picks because they’ve stood head-and-shoulders above the other apps in the photo editor / filter space. So, on to the apps… Photo Editing and Filter Pixelmator A late entry into the iOS photo editing category, Pixelmator captured my heart first on the Mac with…
  • My iOS App Picks for 2014 — Role Playing Games

    Brad Grier
    14 Dec 2014 | 10:09 am
    Over the year I’ve had a little bit of time to play the occasional iOS Role Playing Game (RPG). What I like in an RPG is good solid story and character development. And it’s through that lens that I’ve selected my picks for Role Playing Games of 2014. Role Playing Games Steve Jackson’s Sorcery! No, not That Steve Jackson, this Steve Jackson. An interesting visual style and robust story-telling really engaged me with this one. As part one of a four-part series, it captures the traditional RPG elements, (movement, storytelling, levelling, encounters, etc) in a way that seems intuitive…

    Brad Grier
    11 Dec 2014 | 9:08 am
    It’s that time of year again — the year is ending, coming to a close. And we often take time to look back at things we’ve done. In my case, I thought I’d look back at the iOS apps that have most engaged me over the last year. I’ll basically select a ‘winner’ and a ‘runner up’, and give a few reasons why the app captured my attention and interest. So, without further preamble, here’s my first category and selections: eBook reader Marvin Marvin is new to me this year and it’s an excellent example of what an eBook reader should be. Previously I’d used Stanza, but it was…

  • How 3D Magic Helped This Dog Run For the First Time

    18 Dec 2014 | 3:05 pm
    One foster pup's life was forever changed thanks to the magic of 3D printing. Derby was born with deformed front legs that made it hard for him to run and play with other dogs. When Tara Anderson - the director of product management at a 3D-printing company called 3D Systems - came across Derby's story, her heart melted, and she took him in. Derby had a wheeled cart that wasn't very mobile, so 3D Systems started developing customizable blade-like attachments for Derby's front paws. The ability to rapidly prototype models meant that the company was able to make multiple versions (up to 10!) to…

    16 Nov 2014 | 9:26 am
    Apparently the number of people who see their phone as a gaming device first and foremost and device for communication with the rest of society second, is growing. According to a survey on online and gaming habits in the UK carried out by the Internet Advertising Bureau in 2014, 54% of respondents said that their number one place to game was on their phone. And of that 54%, a quarter of them used their phone for gaming every day. This doesn’t come as that surprising news when you look around you, almost anywhere that you might be.

  • Gadgets to cheat at the casino

    16 Nov 2014 | 9:15 am
    If you want to see the ideal way to cheat at casino, then watch Ocean’s 13, where Danny Ocean and Rusty Ryan (George Clooney and Brad Pitt) are playing craps and jam the three servers at the casino using magnetron devices disguised as lighters. Jamming the servers for three minutes allowing them to have full control of the movement of the dice and they steal a fortune from the casino. Of course, this is fiction, but there have been plenty of devices used over the years to cheat at casinos. Not all of them were successful and many cheaters have been caught in the act and ejected from the…

    Mark Lange
    18 Dec 2014 | 9:16 am
    Microsoft is currently fighting a court case in the United States, challenging a federal law enforcement warrant issued for customer emails stored in Microsoft’s Dublin data center. The warrant was first served on Microsoft just over a year ago, and since then we’ve been resisting what we see as an attempt to stretch the bounds of law enforcement authority. Emails are the personal property of our customers and as caretakers we must be extremely respectful of their rights. Of course, law enforcement must be able to do its job, but when the seizure of personal correspondence is necessary,…

    With 23 official languages, the European Union is a melting-pot of diverse and rich voices. And while it may be hard for all of them to be heard among the chorus, the call for one universal language that can drive Europe forward is becoming louder. That language is code. Coding is the key to unlocking Europe’s potential, across every industry, sector and profession. In an increasingly digital world, computer science skills have become the basis for driving Europe’s economies – and not just in the ICT sector.

    Hell, if I sold my business to Microsoft for $2.5B, I'd buy a mansion too. Maybe not a $70M dollar mansion though. This press release announces the record $70 million sale of a 23,000 square foot Beverly Hills mansion to a "Swedish billionaire and game developer," who turns out to be Minecraft creator Marcus "Notch" Persson. Persson famously came out a couple of billion dollars in the black after selling Mojang to Microsoft in September, and this helps answer the question of what someone does with that kind of money.

  • Author Wants To Give The Interview Away On BitTorrent

    18 Dec 2014 | 2:12 pm
    While this is never going to happen, I like the way the guy thinks. Sony may have withdrawn The Interview but not everyone is scared of releasing the movie. Author Paulo Coelho, whose book The Alchemist has sold in excess of 165 million copies, has just offered to buy the rights to the movie from Sony. He informs TorrentFreak that it would go straight on BitTorrent, for free. Comments

  • WhatsApp To Launch For Desktop: Buckles Up Among Competitors

    15 Dec 2014 | 5:08 am
    There is no denying the fact that WhatsApp is the most dominant messenger among the other messaging apps when it comes to carrying out daily conversations. But what it lacked so far was a desktop client through which one need not check their phones while being online through PC or laptops as it will hinder the workflow. Downloading Bluestacks or any other Android emulators is not only a time consuming process but it also logs you out from your phone due to which you may lose all your conversations and literally need to re verify your number. One may also shift to Skype, Facebook Messenger…

    Samsung has increased the size of its smartphones considerably with its Galaxy series and has made us familiar to the term ‘phablet’. Apple, too who took pride over their smaller screen phones had to now cater to the changing choices of consumers by launching iPhone 6+ which is 5.5 inches. Although the screen sizes have increased, our hands have remained the same.

  • Saying Goodbye To CAPTCHA

    Sharma Karan
    5 Dec 2014 | 3:18 am
    CAPTCHA is an acronym for Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart. It was a means to an end for preventing large-scale automated spam. CAPTCHA showed distorted text which a robot cannot decipher. These distorted texts or images were usually placed at the end of registration forms etc without which you could not proceed. CAPTCHA is a computer program that checks if you are a human or not and prevents spam and malware which might extract data from the site. Google has now developed a smarter software that uses simple tick-boxes to prove if the user is a human…

  • DailyDirt: Winning A Nobel Prize And Thinking Differently

    Michael Ho
    18 Dec 2014 | 5:00 pm
    A fairly sizable list of Nobel laureates suffer from Nobel disease -- a phenomenon in which respected scientists publicly espouse somewhat crazy ideas. Perhaps just being famous also causes this affliction...? Or maybe there should be more research on this topic, worthy of an Ig Nobel award. In any case, here are a few links on some Nobel prize winners that demonstrate these people are still human. Nobel laureate James Watson, famous for eludicating the helical structure of DNA, recently auctioned off his medal for over $4 million. The winning bid came from Russian billionaire Alisher Usmanov…

    It seems like there are so many police-behaving-badly stories that have come out recently, it's no longer all that noteworthy. Mind you, I don't know that the policing situation is generally actually getting worse, as it might seem, or if there is just simply a greater willingness to shine a spotlight in some very uncomfortable places within our own society. That said, what does remain interesting is watching how police around the country react to this spotlight. Watching the unfortunate reactions to athletes showing support for protesters, for instance, would be hysterical if it weren't so…
  • Myriad Loses Again: Patents On Genetic Testing Ruled Invalid

    Glyn Moody
    18 Dec 2014 | 2:44 pm
    Back in 2013, the Supreme Court struck down patents that Myriad Genetics had obtained on naturally-occuring DNA sequences linked to breast cancer. As a result of that judgment, other companies started offering diagnostic tests based on the genes in question. Myriad claimed that despite losing patents on the DNA, its patents on tests based on that DNA were still valid, and took legal action to stop others from offering similar services. As we reported earlier this year, a federal district court judge refused to grant Myriad a preliminary injunction against one of those new entrants, and now…

MergeLane believe diverse companies are stronger companies, and they want to help narrow the gap. Second, data overwhelmingly shows that venture-backed, female-run companies produce higher returns.

    8 Dec 2014 | 12:01 pm
    I just read through/viewed this wonderfully animated piece by VEC/Centre for Digital Media students about the False Creek Flats, and it got me rummaging around. Of late I’ve also been examining the standard planning propaganda* (I use that term here in its modern, non-pejorative sense**) about the future of the Flats in Vancouver. Looking at the public record, there appears to be great uncertainty yet about where the Flats are headed, from a city planning perspective. Despite the seemingly good intentions of many of the companies and institutions that have relocated (and property…
  • Etymology is Everything

    19 Sep 2014 | 8:09 pm
    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…

    I’ve posted my thoughts on urban life and the micropolitics of getting around on my parenting blog, but for various reasons, I didn’t explain how philosophies of space and technology (in particular, Lefevbre and Peter-Paul Verbeek) inform my ideas on the subject. since this blog is more dissertation-oriented, I thought I’d drop a brief overview of these philosophies here. If you’ve read my rant on my other blog, and if you’ve encountered either of these thinkers at all (most parents and transit users I talk to haven’t), you might appreciate where I’m…

    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.

Arlene was a bright shining fun person whom I’d known for over 10 years and who was always fun to hang out with. We’d even been on vacation with her and her entire family. The news was tragic, shocking, and the beginning of a very hectic holiday week. Kristin flew to New York on Sunday where she…

    The last time I shaved was the morning of my father’s funeral, which was a month ago. I wanted to have a physical sign of my mourning. Originally I thought to shave my head, but the first thing that Dad said to me when I first arrived in the hospital to see him before he passed was “C.K., your hair is beautiful!” I decided to grow a mourning beard and give it at least a month. It’s been a month, and as you can see, I’m not genetically inclined to grow a beard. Or at least not quickly. It’s actually on the verge of becoming a real beard, and I’m not…

One doctor said in a Reuters report that people are even coming to him with their selfies during consultations. It’s a gripping madness.

    BlackBerry is taking a page out of Coca-Cola’s playbook and hoping that the Z10, Z30, Q10, and the Passport will all be remembered as BlackBerry’s New Coke era. The BlackBerry Classic is a return to the old formula, with a rectangular build, a physical keyboard, and the trackpad and row of navigation keys. It’s more or less a revival of the Bold line of phones, and while there are some sacrifices made, they seem to be worth it for BlackBerry Classic’s intended audience. The phone measures 5.16″ x 2.85″ x 0.40″ (10.2 mm), and features a 3.5″ square touch…

In seeking the order, the Competition Bureau said agreements Apple negotiated with wireless carriers may have cut into competition by encouraging the companies to maintain or boost the price of rival phones. It'd be very welcome if the relationships between major OEMs and carriers, as well as between the individual carriers, came under very close scrutiny. In…

    Since the last time, the expression parser has grown several new capabilities. We are now able to infer the types of operands, and as such one no longer needs to set the type that one wishes the value to be returned as. A further consequence is that expressions can now return arbitrarily typed values as results, not just simple numeric values. This means that, for instance, an expression can return a data member of a class, and if that member is itself an object or other more complex type, it can then be expanded to look at its internal values.

Three more have switched to developing for business, leaving behind consumer projects. Last year, I observed in a post–one that included an email exchange  with Don Norman of Nielson-Norman and author of The Design of Everyday Things–that I believed the product release of Google Glass was bungled by Google.

  • How to Prevent Gmail from Trimming your Email Signature

    Amit Agarwal
    18 Dec 2014 | 11:27 am
    Gmail has this annoying habit of trimming content that it thinks is repetitive or not relevant to the ongoing email conversation. For example, if you reply to an email message, the recipient will only see what you have written and everything else in the thread would stay hidden until they manually click the 3 dots (ellipsis) that say “Show Trimmed Content.” This doesn’t always work as expected though. Gmail may sometimes hide your actual reply if it contains content identical to other messages in the thread. Also, if you attach a signature to your outgoing email messages,…

    What do you do when your Google Drive is running out of storage space? You either add more storage or the inexpensive option is that you clean up your Drive and delete the large files that are hogging up the bulk of space. But how do know where these big files are hiding in your Drive? Google Drives lists the file size but without the sort option. If you switch to the List View in Google Drive (the list icon is near the Settings gear), it will show the sizes of all your files but unfortunately there’s no option to sort that list by their sizes.

But on Thursday, U.S. officials resisted making the same allegations in public and didn’t release any evidence to back up the anonymous claims. North Korean involvement is certainly possible. After all, defectors have spoken about North Korea’s cyber attack force and training. But it also plays into a popular and…

    Can high-performing drivers boost IT resiliency and prevent massive failures like the UK’s NATS shutdown? Late last week London airspace was shut down due to an IT failure at the National Air Traffic Services (NATS.) While the cause of the problem is being blamed on a “single line of computer code”, the decades-old NATS computer system and architecture has to take part of the blame. Could this have been prevented with more modern architecture? Definitely. ‘IT resilience’ is an important concept dealing with how IT systems can be designed so that they don’t fail, or if they do…

In fact, “while shopping for a Hadoop vendor is relatively straightforward, picking a NoSQL database is anything but. There are, after all, in excess of 100 NoSQL databases.” Matt lists MongoDB, HBase and Cassandra as three NoSQL databases to watch.

From the success of the iOS 8 to the initial explosion of the iPhone 6 onto the consumer market, the brand is now firmly established as the dominant force in the smartphone and mobile markets. In fact, initial sales of the iPhone 6 have helped Apple to secure a record share of the smartphone market this year, with their handsets now accounting for a staggering 39.5% of all sales within this space. This represents an unprecedented rise of 10.4% between July and October in 2014, and sets a trend that is likely…

  • The Personal Effort

    Alex Goldfayn
    15 Dec 2014 | 1:34 pm
    Personal communication, along with certain rhinos and all Blackberry models, is on the endangered species list. In an era when anyone can use technology to shout anything to anybody at any time, the simple one-on-one communication will, ironically, help you powerfully stand out from the crowd. So: When you send a group email, send a separate one to a customer, for no other reason than to express appreciation for their partnership and maybe to see how you can serve them better. When you’re thinking about emailing somebody, don’t. Pick up the phone. Also, send hand-written notes.

Ask your customer facing staff — inside sales, outside sales, customer service, even your independent reps — this question: What is our lowest-hanging fruit for fast growth? Because of their varying perspectives on your business, their answers will be far-ranging, with little, if any, repetition. You’ll also gain powerful insight on your people: who’s talking about what they can do, and who’s talking about what you need to do for them? Ask your people, and ask yourself: what can you do (that you…

Make a quick list of all the customers and prospects who discussed a deal with you this year, but did not buy. (Go back through quotes, proposals, and emails to make this list). Total time for this activity: one hour, and that’s a maximum. 2. Organize your list in order of customers / prospects / products / sales you’d like to close most. That is, put the most attractive ones at the top, least attractive at bottom. Total time: 15 minutes. 3. Next to each person on your list,…

In 15 minutes or less (but often in 90 seconds), you can tell somebody who can buy from you about how they’d improve if they do so. Send an email. Write a hand-written note.

Adams, who plays real-life artist Margaret Keane, says she got to meet the lady she was portraying and was fascinated to learn things from her about her own life. Keane’s second husband, Walter, ultimately took credit for the paintings of big-eyed characters she created in the ’60s. The film tells the story of…

    Shailene Woodley had a phenomenal year as an actress. Between The Fault in Our Stars and Divergent, she became a household name. However it is Woodley’s hair that is making news as 2014 draws to a close. MTV reports she had the most important haircut of the whole year. It was abundantly clear once Woodley was cast in the role of Hazel Lancaster in The Fault in Our Stars that her lengthy locks would have to go. Lancaster was, after all, a cancer patient. It was still a big event for the actress, whose tresses had been long for quite some time. For weeks following her haircut, Shailene…

    It is like bad news is raining on the Chinese  players in India. It was barely a week that Xiaomi was banned from importing and selling phones in India and another new Chinese player has been handed over the same fate. The reason here is different, but OnePus would not be allowed to import or sell its products in India till the ban is rescinded. However, the catch here is that unlike Xiaomi there is no immediate ban and OnePlus will be able to sell off its current stocks until they run out and only beyond that would not be allowed to market or sell their devices. The reason for the ban is…

This means Xiaomi would not be able to sell the 3G variant of its newly launched phablet, RedMi Note but can go ahead with the sales of RedMi Note 4G variant as well as the RedMi 1s as both…

Albeit the update was rolled out to a very small portion of customers, those in Poland, but it was a significant move by LG to establish belief among its customers that it is committed towards providing timely updates.  Updates have been a major pain for the Android users and thanks to the use of a custom UI atop the Vanilla Android skin, they have always been delayed when compared to the devices that run Vanilla Android.

Sadly that’s not how wireless charging works in the present day. You need a charging base on which you need to place a wireless charging compatible phone and it starts charging. It works on the principle of inductive charging — where in the charging base and the phone has coils to transmit energy without having to connect any cable to the phone. Quite a lot of manufacturers attempted to crack the market and introduce…

    10 Dec 2014 | 4:36 am
    Why You Still Need to Worry About Your Android Security — Even If You Have Lollipop With the release of the latest version of the Android operating system, version 5.0 or Lollipop, many people are convinced that it’s the most secure version yet. With new features like SmartLock and automatic encryption, proponents claim that Android phones are now completely safe from any type of data theft.

    9 Dec 2014 | 3:01 am
    By now, it’s clear: Cloud computing isn’t going anywhere. In fact, recent surveys indicate that just about 90 percent of all companies are using some form of cloud service, most often for storage. However, some small businesses are still hesitant to make the leap to the cloud, for various reasons. Security concerns are at the forefront of most entrepreneur’s minds; the consequences of a security breach can be devastating to a small business, so many simply opt to keep all functions in-house. Cost, fears of downtime, and confusion about how to integrate cloud systems with existing…

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

And it’s just the beginning. While the military has been using drones since the 1970s, it was arguably Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’ December 2013 announcement of his company’s plan to offer 30 minute product deliveries via drones that brought them to the mainstream. Whether or not such a delivery service pans out is less important than the buzz (no pun intended) it created – as a kickstart for the drone industry.

The researchers said the new material — made of a layer of graphene and a layer of tungsten disulfide — could be used in solar cells and flexible electronics. Their findings are published today by Nature Communications.

    A group of journalists and researchers wade into ugly corners of the Internet to expose racists, creeps, and hypocrites. Have they gone too far?We’ve come up with the menacing term “troll” for someone who spreads hate and does other horrible things anonymously on the Internet. Internet trolls are unsettling not just because of the things they say but for the mystery they represent: what kind of person could be so vile?

    Severe droughts are forcing researchers to rethink how technology can increase the supply of fresh water.Even in drought-stricken California, San Diego stands out. It gets less rain than parched Los Angeles or Fresno. The region has less groundwater than many other parts of the state. And more than 80 percent of water for homes and businesses is imported from sources that are increasingly stressed. The Colorado River is so overtaxed that it rarely reaches the sea; water originating in the Sacramento River delta, more than 400 miles north, was rationed by state officials this year, cutting off…

  • EHR Systems and ICD-10 Transition

    17 Dec 2014 | 11:07 pm
    The delay in transition to the next generation of medical coding, ICD-10-CM/PCS till October 1, 2015 has given both physicians and electronic health record (HER) vendors more time to prepare their systems for the change. ICD-10 offers better representation of disease severity and risk as well as better claim information that provides support to automated processing. In physician practices, a variety of systems such as EHR and billing and practice management need to be customized to support ICD-10. In fact, experts point out that updating their EHR for compliance with ICD-10 is one of the…

Hospital readmission is defined as a patient being readmitted within the initial 30 days of hospital stay. In fact, avoidable…
  • Why is it Crucial to Update the U.S. Medical Coding System

    Julie Clements
    15 Dec 2014 | 6:53 pm
    The U.S. is one of the developed nations which is still using ICD-9, many others already having implemented ICD-10 codes. The transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 by October 1, 2015 is not easy as ICD-9 is deeply rooted in healthcare system and to upgrade the existing systems with the new codes is technically difficult. Implementing ICD-10 will benefit physicians, patients, and the healthcare system in general as the new codes will result in a more accurate reporting system with better support for the clinical decision. It will also pave the way for advancements in diagnosis and treatment options…

    The implementation of ICD-10 will dramatically impact the way coding is done. In October 2015, the US health care system will transition to the International Classification of Diseases, 10th Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-10-CM). Proper attention to these codes is necessary to ensure accurate reimbursement in medical practices. ICD-10 code sets allow for greater specificity and exactness in medical diagnoses and inpatient procedures reporting. Providers will need to work more to document diagnoses as ICD-10 has 8 times more codes than ICD-9. Pediatrics, cardiology and nephrology are the…

    I recently posted a lengthy and detailed blog 1E WakeUp Server and its AgentFinder Process. This article introduced the concept of identifying 1E Agents present on the local subnets within the boundaries of a WakeUp Server installation, and assigning two of them the roles of a primary and alternate agent for their respective subnets. The purpose of this effort comes into play when it becomes necessary to ensure clients machines on a given subnet are up and running at a designated time. This technology uses one of the remote agents as a proxy of the WakeUp server to power on the required…

Some Anti-Virus solutions include a client side firewall. The client side firewall allows you to create and deploy firewall policies to your desktop/laptop fleet. These policies will include rules that will define what traffic can pass through the fleet. The traffic coming in or going out will be evaluated against the firewall policy and will then be determined if the traffic is able to continue or is it to be…

Here are some areas to focus on, to improve the quality of automation. Watch out for “Flaky” tests I often say, “Randomly failing tests are as good as not having any tests – in fact, they’re even worse.” Make sure the tests you write are reliable – i.e. you should be confident that, if it fails, it’s due to a bug…

The API behaviour for a given resource was going to change between version 1.x and 1.y, but the controller logic was going to stay the same. Usually when your behaviour changes it's a big enough change that you need a new controller and you can direct the request appropriately - either using a version number in the route, or (my preference) with a version in the request header and a custom IHttpControllerSelector.

    16 Dec 2014 | 12:58 pm
    Earlier this year Jisse asked if I was prepared to review the book he was writing on Joomla plugins. Proof reading is something that strangely I enjoy doing even if it is quite a slow and tedious task. However I did warn Jisse that I wouldn't be able to review anything other than the language as "I am not a developer". I have always known that plugins are one of the most powerful features of Joomla but as "I am not a developer" I have always had to rely on plugins published on the JED or pay someone to develop them for me. After reading the book I have surprised myself by being able to…

    15 Dec 2014 | 8:57 am
    Parents, along with the times, are getting more and more modern. Many of them grew up in a time where calculators were starting be allowed into schools. Others even had access to cool watches that let them secretly play games, and some even kept a pocket game machine with them. That’s not to say that […]

  • NexGen Cloud Conference in San Diego – Missing the Point

    5 Dec 2014 | 4:58 pm
    The NexGen Cloud Computing Conference kicked off in San Diego on Thursday with a fair amount of hype and a lot of sales people.  Granted the intent of the conference is for cloud computing vendors to find and develop either sales channels, or business development opportunities within the market. As an engineer, the conference will probably result in a fair amount of frustration, but will at least provide a level of awareness in how an organization’s sales, marketing, and business teams are approaching their vision of a cloud computing product or service delivery. However, one presentation…
  • Nurturing the Marriage of Cloud Computing and SOAs

    3 Dec 2014 | 5:51 pm
    In 2009 we began consulting jobs with governments in developing countries with the primary objective to consolidate data centers across government ministries and agencies into centralized, high capacity and quality data centers.  At the time, nearly all individual ministry or agency data infrastructure was built into either small computers rooms or server closets with some added “brute force” air conditioning, no backup generators, no data back up, superficial security, and lots of other ailments. The vision and strategy was that if we consolidated inefficient, end of life, and high risk…

    Providing guidance or consulting to organizations on cloud computing topics can be really easy, or really tough.  In the past most of the initial engagement was dedicated to training and building awareness with your customer.  The next step was finding a high value, low risk application or service that could be moved to Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) to solve an immediate problem, normally associated with disaster recovery or data backups. As the years have continued, dynamics changed.  On one hand, IT professionals and CIOs began to establish better knowledge of what…

  • Service Automation: Key for Maximizing IT and Business Efficiency

    Jim Frey
    10 Dec 2014 | 8:53 am
    The dual revolutions of consumerization and cloud have certainly caused much disruption within and around IT. And universally they have also increased the expectations of IT end users. IT-enabled workers and the lines of business they represent are looking for a fast response to new technology needs combined with high levels of service quality—all at a minimum cost. How is it possible for IT to accommodate such demands? Two themes that emerge from both EMA research and practitioner dialogue are “automation” and “service awareness.” Taking a service-centric approach to automation…

    There is no disagreement that the current mag-stripe technology used in the USA and other countries outside of the EU is antiquated and lends itself to fraud. The data is easily copied using various methods from manual card data copying and shoulder surfing, to database compromise and POS terminal malware.  Cards can be reproduced with off-the-shelf plastic blanks and a simple machine you can buy on the Internet. Card fraud worldwide is on track to grow by approximately 19% over 2013. In one recent article, the author that the US accounted for 51% of the credit card fraud by dollars lost,…
  • Innovation Explosion Sets the Stage for New Wave of “Hybrid” Applications

    Julie Craig
    8 Dec 2014 | 8:34 am
    In the past, technology evolution was quantified as generational. So the first generation of computing was based on the vacuum tube, followed by the transistor, integrated circuits, and microprocessors. Even today, multi-generational software and hardware systems are very much alive in many modern data centers. The interesting thing about the generational approach is that it has always been associated with linear progression and evolutionary growth. However the rapid technology evolution we are seeing today is more revolutionary than evolutionary, and IT is bearing the brunt of its impact.

    The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) is a not-for-profit think tank of volunteers that spend their time trying to better the internet. These people are the antithesis of cybercriminals; they spend their energy trying to figure out ways to make our data safer. They create best practices for providing security assurance within cloud computing, or in this case, they determine how a cloud environment can be used to enhance and scale authentication for a service that can be cloud-based or private data center-based. Just last week, CSA announced the results of a worldwide Hackathon against an…

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

  • ORMs – Love them or hate them?

    18 Dec 2014 | 1:59 am
    For many reasons we have grown to love our ORMs. We enjoy the simplicity of Entity Framework, the way it separates us from the old much unappreciated world of stored procedures and the T-SQL. We also love the nHibernate for its maturity and the amount of features it provides. What they give us is simplicity and a neat level of abstraction over the database access code which allows us to develop quicker, all for free. But we all know that if someone gives us something for free, there must be a catch. Well, nothing is free in this world. In this case we get tons of unnecessary overhead. Even…

If you need more than just one look, there is a good chance that you are doing something wrong. And if you scratch you head an think: “What the heck was I thinking?”, you have definitely done it wrong. But what have gone wrong? Most probably the code works fine and at some point you knew it inside out. Why can’t you remember it now? Maybe your code wasn’t written clearly enough and in accordance with best coding…
  • How to use custom fonts in Android apps (and not get fat)

    Daniel Dekański
    1 Aug 2014 | 3:52 am
    Fonts have always been a vital part of brand identity and UI design. With the development of modern Web standards it has become easy to implement customized fonts in websites, but native mobile apps somehow still lag behind in this area. Platform guides warn us against unleashing our creativity in that aspect and state that the built-in fonts have been optimized for memory and performance constraints of mobile devices. I think today, with more and more horse power under the hood of our latest mobile gadgets, we should not limit ourselves to the modest assortment of default typefaces. Going…
  • Software Architecture Canvas – a brother of the business model canvas?

    17 Jul 2014 | 3:57 am
    Have you ever heard of the business model canvas? If so, then you know that it is basically a board of basic elements which need to be evaluated in the process of creating a product and the business around it. Have you ever wondered if such a model could be created for a software design process? I did and here are my thoughts on it. Obviously a detailed implementation cannot be touched by such a “bird’s eye architecture-cheat-sheet” but I think a general description with some design tips can be achieved. So without further ado I bring to you: “The 11 blocks of software…

Entrepreneurs are some of the most busiest people around but being busy doesn’t necessarily mean you’re being productive. Peak productivity is about devotion to routines that actually work and lead to accomplishments.

That warning was the announcement of the discovery of what was called the Heartbleed bug, a vulnerability that had existed for years but had long gone undetected. This defect was estimated to have affected up to two-thirds of internet servers, allowing cyber criminals to go around transport security layer (TLS) protections and grabbing confidential information found in computers or servers that had OpenSSL-powered software.

This shouldn’t come as a surprise considering the stories that have hit the headlines revealing large security breaches at major corporations like Sony, Target and Home Depot. At the same time, many organizations have made great strides in adopting bring your own device (BYOD) policies, allowing employees greater freedom in using their own devices while at work. These two trends, while seemingly unrelated, are actually closely intertwined. One of the biggest worries about BYOD deals with the security risks of…

    Diwali, the festival of lights, is a holiday happily celebrated all over India. Indians celebrate this as a start of new year. It is a holiday similar to that of Christmas for others.

The main purpose why I’m writing this post is to let my friends (who are residing on the other part of the world) understand why we celebrate Diwali and what does it actually mean to us.

    We can all acknowledge that videos are a more popular and more powerful form of communication than words. Except for the literature enthusiast, most people would rather watch the movie than read the book. And even those who would read the book would rather watch the news than read a newspaper. Plus, what we see impacts us more than what we read because it seems much more real. That being said, blogs are still very popular and words are still necessary, even if it is only to accompany the video.

Firstly, the dimensions of each site should be considered: Some offers paid courses, whereas others focus on free courses.

One company, BrainCert shared the following: Teachers can have a difficult time giving up control in a traditional classroom.

  • Improve your grades by finding tutors through these 5 online destinations

    Loic Cobbina
    21 Jun 2014 | 1:32 pm
    It is a good idea to be in class and learn from a teacher but the downside of the current schooling system is that each teacher has to deal with too many students. On average there are 20 students in each class and this increases the chance that, by the end of the teaching session, some still don’t get the point that the teacher was trying to put across. To remediate to the problem enunciated, some students are advised to take private tutors. Up to now, nothing can beat a one-on-one form of teaching. The good news is because the world today is interconnected, you or your children do not…

Among various SiP technologies, TSV 3D IC (Through-Silicon-Via) which vertically interconnects stacked dies using TSV technology has been considered the future packaging technology due to its high space efficiency and performance. Up to now, TSV 3D IC technology has only been applied to the integration of homogeneous chips, resulting in a low industrial value.

  • Spigen Capsule Case for the Note 4 review

    16 Dec 2014 | 7:15 pm

So, since the device was free (and quite expensive), I decided to buy a case to protect it. It’s true that a case lessens the aesthetics a beautifully designed device brings, but I’d rather have a covered flagship, than a dinged one.

  • Wait, Meta Descriptions DO Affect Search Results?

    Dave Paul
    5 Dec 2014 | 10:54 am
    In the tangled jungle of factors that affect your website’s search ranking, it’s nice when you come cross something you don’t have to optimize. The longstanding opinion in the SEO community, confirmed by Google itself, was that your meta description is of those rare non-factors. Neil Patel challenges that conventional wisdom in a recent op ed, claiming that your meta description is a major factor in your rankings, albeit an indirect one. For those of us who don’t spend all our time geeking on Internet marketing, let’s start off by defining our terms. Your meta description is one of…
  • Will the EU Break Up Google?

    Dave Paul
    4 Dec 2014 | 6:37 am
    Europe really, really doesn’t like Google. At least, that’s the message that has been sent by increasingly strict European Union rules on how search engines can operate, such as this summer’s “Right to Forget” court decision. But such rulings seem like minor speed bumps compared to the EU’s latest proposal: break Google in half. The decision came late last week in the form of a resolution to split search engines off of their parent companies. The resolution, which passed by an overwhelming 2-to-1 majority, doesn’t call out Google by name—but as the market leader that dominates…

This sent some ripples through the searchosphere over Thanksgiving weekend, and surely has customers of the link network—who paid money for the privilege of having their search visibility penalized—caught by surprise. The real surprise here, however, is not that Google penalized the link farm and its customers—it’s that anyone was still paying for these types of schemes. What Happened Link directories, link farms or link networks are all different terms for…
  • Is Bing Setting a New Web Design Trend?

    Dave Paul
    1 Dec 2014 | 12:38 pm
    When Google first debuted, there were lots of things that set it apart from other search engines: it was a pioneer in evaluating the links pointing to a website rather than just the keywords that site contained, and offered users better search results. But that’s not something users can easily see, and it’s not what made Google popular. Instead, what set the upstart apart from its competitors was the design of the search page itself. Search engines in the early 2000s were a visual mess. The main search portals of early giants like Yahoo and AOL were crammed with features and information,…
  • How to Succeed in the Age of Organic Search

    Dave Paul

    In a recent piece from Search Engine Land, columnist Trond Lyngbø explained how organic search has changed business from a “selling cycle” of trying to reach consumers to a “buying cycle” of letting consumers reach you. Trond is right, and the new Internet economy means that consumers have the power to do more research, vet more options, and actively avoid being sold to. But when it comes to advice for how to succeed in that environment, Trond is surprisingly vague. He offers general suggestions like “assisting clients with buying decisions” and “sharing information about…

The first such vehicles will debut in 2015. Google, however, has never provided…

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

My criticisms of the latest study are yet again basically the same, but for reasons I explain below, that conclusion is even more implausible now than it was just…

(The Argus, 13 Dec 1897) No better words have been written about the Austral Wheel Race since these, 117 or so years old this week. As the world’s oldest track race, the Austral is an important heritage cycling event. It is fitting then that the biggest story so far of the 117th Austral (to be run on 20 December in…

Oh please! those are just what we perceive in our minds; “It all in your head”.

Even people that aren't of the Christian or Jewish variety are welcome to participate. Lately however, Americans are using social media to enhance the holidays. In other words, even though old-world traditions like Christmas trees and Menorahs remain, modern services like Twitter and Facebook are…

  • Another Day, Another Victim. Do Candle Light Vigils Actually Help?

    26 Aug 2014 | 7:00 am
    Accidents tend to happen all around us. A quick glance at the daily newsletter will make one realize how insecure and unpredictable our dwelling region is.

They are the proof of existence of the most ruthless and cold-hearted clan of the humans. One can absolutely do nothing, to prevent the assaults by a group of terrorists who are motive less and driven by an unending thirst for blood. Also, in light of…

    Spesso mantenere una certa forma nel consumo di memoria del nostro cellulare è essenziale: per qualche mega di RAM in meno possiamo trovarci con applicazioni che non partono o che rallentano drasticamente. Qualcosa che, soprattutto per i più fanatici, è grave sotto ogni punto di vista. A volte non è nemmeno colpa del cellulare: è dovuto anche alle applicazioni e come questi siano in effetti molto “RAM-hungry” ovvero affamati di memoria. Altre volte però 512 di RAM in alcuni smartphone significa soffrire parecchio la presenza di molteplici installazioni di Apps nel nostro sistema…

    23 Nov 2014 | 1:19 pm
    Allow me to oversimplify. I am an iPhone user since 2009. Back then, when Apple wasn’t a watch company, the App Store was a fairly easy place to traverse. It may not had curated lists and bundles by Apple, in-app purchases, and Health Kit integraded apps, but its amount of available apps to download was miniscule compared to today (150,000 v 1.2 million.) Fast forward to 2014, newcomers in the the iOS world (many friends of mine included) are overwhelmed by the App Store’s vastness and its inadequacy to expose the great apps.1 So without further ado, here is the list that you can…

I describe the context of the work in A Bitcoin for Digital Art, my first piece for Medium’s “The Message” collection, and we also showed it off with a demo at the most improbable of venues, TechCrunch‘s Disrupt conference.

    Our most basic need right after survival and concurrently a key quality of the human condition is the need to connect and communicate. I’m an avid Snapchat user for almost a year now and sold thenceforth on its ephemeral premise. A friend from the States dragged me into it long before it went huge in Europe as well1 — a great idea in retrospect, since it eliminated a lot of communication friction, both formal and informal. It connects. Snapchat’s “[…] pure sharing, the ‘lowest-commitment form of communication.’”. I’m also a Casey Neistat fan. And today…
  • Automate Git, g++, Dash with Bash

    14 Jun 2014 | 3:53 am
    I was browsing around Github when I found Jim’s Git-aware prompt repo. A nice bash hack to display the current git branch name in your terminal prompt when in a git directory. After installing it struck me1 — I can automate tedious terminal commands with Bash aliases. The general concept is that a Bash alias doesn’t accept parameters itself but it can call a function which does. g++ compiler alias I build my C++ source files with g++ -Wall -O3 foo.cpp -o foo. Now that’s a futile life; typing this multiple times a day. But thank Richard Stallman for…

    9 Jun 2014 | 3:41 am
    Yesterday, a computer simulating a 13-year-old boy named Eugene passed the Turing Test at an event organized by University of Reading at London’s Royal Society. This is a huge and remarkable breakthrough in the AI front. The Turing Test is a test of a machine’s ability to exhibit intelligent behaviour equivalent to, or indistinguishable from, that of a human. It is, essentially, a conversation between three parties—Player A (human,) Player B (machine,) and Player C (human)—which are separated from one another. If the judge (Player A) cannot reliably tell the machine…

    1 Dec 2014 | 11:50 am
    I came into the software world in the middle of the great operating system war, which pitted IBM, Microsoft, and other minor players against each other for dominance over the server operating system. The war was short but fierce, leaving Microsoft and Windows NT/3.1 in control of the market, and everyone else relegated to niche players. The rest as they say is history (that is until Linux started to gain momentum in the mid-2000s). I’ve been assuming the cloud market would develop in a similar fashion to the 1990s server operating system market, with a few key vendors (i.e. Amazon,…
  • Day 3 at re:Invent

    Joe Kinsella
    14 Nov 2014 | 7:04 pm
    Day 3 for me started with an early breakfast. Serving breakfast to 13K+ people is a logistical feat made even more impressive when you see the scale of the dining facility. The hall is a gigantic warehouse-sized space on the lower floor of the Venetian whose far sides are hard to see from each edge. I somehow managed to be the first person at breakfast, due in large part to my East Coast body clock and an usher making a mistake in admitting me early. After walking for 10 minutes down aisles of wait staff directing me to a table like ramp service agents directing a plane, I managed to find a…

    Day 2 at re:Invent is wrapping up, and what a crazy day it was. The day started with the first of the two big keynote announcements. Andy Jassy, the SVP who heads AWS, was the standard speaker for the kickoff re:Invent keynote. Andy was actually the person who drove the business plan that launched AWS, taking it from a concept to the the broad services available today. The keynote was given in an enormous warehouse-like space with over 13K seats. Some key things Andy said include: AWS has 1 million active customers. AWS has the highest revenue growth rate of any multi-billion tech business…

    12 Nov 2014 | 6:12 am
    I flew out Monday night on the 8 PM JetBlue flight to Vegas for re:Invent. I wasn’t the sole passenger headed to the conference, and met people from a variety of local companies on the plane, including Acquia, Fiksu, MathWorks, Constant Contact, ThreatStack, CloudTP, Mobiquity, CloudHealth and more. I wore my AWS hoodie from last year’s re:Invent, which someone told me was like wearing the band’s t-shirt to their concert (in my defense it is surprisingly comfortable). After an uneventful flight, I checked into the Venetian and crashed. My morning was kicked off with a chance meeting…

    One thing about modern technology is the fact that these days products become obsolete almost as soon as they are released. It wasn’t like that in the glorious days of “Analogue” where things would last for years. Take cameras as an example. I bought my first quality single lens reflex 35mm film camera when I was a teenager and it still works just as well today. However I have owned maybe 4 or 5 Digital cameras in less than 10 years and the main reason for changing was to “upgrade” to the more up to date version. It’s the same with TV’s.

    If you have experienced or are experiencing problems when trying to sign in to Google services the solution may be simpler than you think. Although there can be other reasons a primary one, albeit not well known, is that you have too many active tokens.Tokens are created, for example, when you login to third party services with your Google or Google+ account using OAuth, share your Gmail contacts, allow web apps to view your Google Reader subscriptions, sync your Chrome OS or browser data, use Android (phone and certain apps), or use/link any of Google's many services or APIs (Keep, YouTube,…

  • The Ethics Of Publishing Hacked Information

    Michael Arrington
    15 Dec 2014 | 12:54 pm
    Like many people I’ve been fascinated by the Sony hacks. So much interesting information (and gossip) about the inner workings of a major movie studio. I was also waiting for Sony to start balking at the re-publication of a lot of that information by the news sites. And sure enough, they’re now calling it stolen information, and threatening publications that are sharing it with the public. It reminds me distinctly of the situation we found ourselves in in 2009 when a hacker delivered a truckload of internal Twitter information. See In Our Inbox: Hundreds Of Confidential Twitter…
  • MTailor: The Perfectly Tailored Man’s Shirt

    Michael Arrington
    10 Dec 2014 | 2:21 pm
    MTailor, one of our recent investments at CrunchFund, is a really amazing company. They make tailored shirts for men, except your mobile device is the tailor. You go through a quick scanning process that involves leaning your phone or tablet against a wall and then spinning slowly in front of it. Once that’s done MTailor has your measurements, which they say are 20% better than actual tailors they used for a study. I’ve never owned tailored shirts but I should have. I have a longer body than average and generally buy tall shirts when I can find them. That’s been harder with…
  • “Time Collapse” And My Broken Brain

    Michael Arrington
    10 Nov 2014 | 9:52 pm
    I was perusing the news headlines this evening and I noticed this article about Glenn Beck’s health troubles. A few sentences early on in the article floored me, because it describes how I feel exactly: “Doctors tell me that up until recently, I hadn’t had a real REM sleep in maybe as long as a decade,” Beck said. “I didn’t have a dream that I remember, except one in a decade. And quite honestly, this isn’t a symptom you look to fix if you have a ton to do. But the first sign of trouble I noticed was what I call a ‘time collapse.’ If we had met before, I couldn’t tell…
  • Abacus, The Expense Software Employees Love, Raises $3.5 Million

    31 Oct 2014 | 6:46 am
    I hate expense reports. I do them once a year and I still hate it. Back when I had to do them monthly or have the finance department all over me I hated them twelve times as much. Abacus fixes all that. The company was founded by Omar Qari, Ted Power and Josh Halickman (Foursquare, Google, Etsy Venmo and other experience) and they launched earlier this year at Winter Y Combinator. You can read their launch post here. How does Abacus fix expense reports? When a company starts using Abacus, they link their bank account. Employees set themselves up in the app and also link their bank account.
  • Who’s Lying About Whisper?

    Separately, Whisper has been following a user claiming to be a sex-obsessed lobbyist in Washington DC. The company’s tracking tools allow staff to monitor which areas of the capital the lobbyist visits. “He’s a guy that we’ll track for the rest of his life and he’ll have no idea we’ll be watching him,” the same Whisper executive said. – The Guardian As far as I can tell from what The Guardian has alleged, and from Whisper’s denials, what happened is this: 1. When talking to potential partners, Whisper hypes its ability to track users so that those partners will know…

  • Think North Korea hacked Sony? Think about this

    18 Dec 2014 | 5:00 pm
    North Korea or not? There’s still a lot we don’t know about the attack on Sony Pictures and those behind it. After two weeks of investigations, anonymous government officials told some reporters and politicians on Wednesday that North Korea was behind the attacks. But on Thursday, U.S. officials resisted making the same allegations in public and didn’t release any evidence to back up the anonymous claims. North Korean involvement is certainly possible. After all, defectors have spoken abou

  • Uber exploits Sydney siege and introduces surge pricing

    Taxi service Uber will not have made any friends in Sydney today after introducing 4X surge pricing for those looking to use the service to leave Sydney’s central business district, where gunmen have taken dozens of hostages in a cafe. According to Mashable, distressed Sydney CBD workers are being charged four times normal prices by Uber to get themselves out of the area, which is currently on police lock-down, with hundreds of officers and snipers surrounding the area. Uber’s surge pricing dynamically increases the price of taxi fares when there is a rise in demand for the…
