  • French Nuclear Industry In Turmoil As Manufacturer Buckles

    5 Mar 2015 | 12:06 am
    mdsolar writes with bad news for France and its nuclear industry. "France's nuclear industry is in turmoil after the country's main reactor manufacturer, Areva, reported a loss for 2014 of 4.8 billion euros ($5.3 billion) — more than its entire market value. The government of France, the world's most nuclear dependent country, has a 29% stake in Areva, which is among the biggest global nuclear technology companies. The loss puts its future — and that of France as a leader in nuclear technology — at risk. Energy and Environment Minister Segolene Royal said Wednesday she asked…

The Federal Trade Commission and 10 state attorneys general today said they have settled charges against a Florida-based cruise line company and seven other companies that averaged 12 million to 15 million illegal sales calls a day between October 2011 through July 2012, according to the joint complaint filed by the FTC and the states.Read more of this story at Slashdot.

In 2006, we saw the highest jump in residential electricity rates. In some regions, increased to 60% was observed. Many experts agree that the trend will continue in the coming years. This means you have to pay more money to support their monthly electricity consumption.

We can assume, to a degree, that they'll become more crowded and, as a result, more prone to delays as time goes on; 75% of the world's population, in fact, is expected to reside in cities by 2050, putting more stress on already overburdened urban infrastructure and public transportation systems.

  • Duang: The word with no meaning that broke the Internet in China

    There are only a few instances when the Internet goes into total meltdown over something circulating on social media. More often than not, its something meaningless that for an unknown reason piques the interest of the entire digital world in one fatal blow. Symptoms can include exhaustion, heart palpitations and in some cases, trust issues. In China, the sheer number of Internet users — approaching 700 million — makes this feat a more worrying possibility. In late February, these fears were realised when people across the nation were sucked down an Internet hole debating the…

  • First floating solar plant hopes to change waste energy in Australia

    A floating solar plant is set to be constructed on a wastewater treatment basin in South Australia, in an Australia-first initiative. The plant, which is expected to be up and running by April, will float on a water treatment facility in Jamestown, according to the ABC. It will be used to generate energy to power the plant and any leftover energy will be transferred to the town of Jamestown See also: China gripped by smog documentary 'Under the Dome' It looks very similar to a traditional land-based solar plant, besides the fact it is designed to float.

  • Auditor: Canadian Law Enforcement's Statistics On ISP Subscriber Data Requests Completely Unreliable

    Tim Cushing
    4 Mar 2015 | 8:56 pm
    Intrusive surveillance programs -- especially domestic surveillance programs -- are sold to wary legislators with promises of stringent oversight and periodic reporting. That's how they're sold. The reality is nowhere near as assuring. The warrantless acquisition of Canadian ISP subscriber information was so thoroughly exploited by law enforcement that by 2011, subscriber data was being requested every 27 seconds. The recent addition of a warrant requirement has slowed these requests to a comparative crawl and resulted in cases being dropped by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). With…
  • DailyDirt: Messing With Mice Brains

    4 Mar 2015 | 5:00 pm
    The genes that make humans distinct from other animals are being narrowed down. We have a lot in common with other mammals and especially other primates, but relatively tiny differences in a set of genes could explain how human language and intelligence evolved and developed. Understanding the complexity of human intelligence and genetics will likely take decades or longer -- and we may never fully understand every aspect of consciousness. However, we're making some progress and creating some smarter mice along the way. Check out a few of these experiments. Injecting human astrocytes (the…

Nothing has changed. Toeppen is still a lawsuit fan who believes negative reviewers or anyone who doesn't fully appreciate how hard it is to run a shuttle bus service should be forced to pay $500 (at least) in "liquidated damages." Now, he's looking to pave himself a downhill slope for his future…
  • Marsha Blackburn Rushes To The Defense Of Awful, Protectionist State Broadband Laws

    Karl Bode
    4 Mar 2015 | 2:24 pm
    While net neutrality justifiably received a ton of press attention last week, we were quick to point out that the FCC's other major decision -- to start attacking protectionist state broadband laws -- may just be a bigger deal. These twenty or so laws, as we've explored in detail, are written and lobbied for by incumbent ISPs and prohibit towns and cities from deciding for themselves what they should be able to do regarding local telecom infrastructure. If you realize that neutrality violations are just a symptom of a lack of competition, the FCC's decision to start dismantling the onerous…
  • Last Week Was A Victory, But The Fight For The Open Internet Is Nowhere Close To Being Done

    Mike Masnick
    4 Mar 2015 | 1:10 pm
    As you know, last week the FCC made a somewhat historic move, to vote to reclassify broadband internet access as a "Title II" telecommunications service, which allows the FCC to implement specific open internet rules that disallow things such as paid prioritization and blocking. This move has been rightly celebrated by many people. However, it is also being attacked by many others. Some of that is nothing more than spewing big broadband companies' talking points. Some of it is merely partisan bickering, as the "net neutrality" fight became ridiculously partisan, even though a vast majority of…

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

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

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

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

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

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

    You asked for innovation, and you got it. Alcatel’s iPhone 6 size-aping OneTouch Idol 3 pair comes with a unique, “orientation-free” interface that essentially lets you use the two handhelds even when held upside down. Then again, is there really a right way to hold these 4.7 and 5.5 inchers if they work fine no matter the “orientation”? Oh, well, let’s not get stuck on an ingenious albeit… Continue reading Alcatel unveils ‘100% reversible’ OneTouch Idol 3 smartphones Related posts: Alcatel Intros One Touch Idol S and Idol Mini Smartphones, Evo 8HD Tablet Alcatel…
  • Huawei stays committed to basic fitness trackers with TalkBand B2 and N1

    4 Mar 2015 | 7:52 am
    Just because they have a fancy, complex, premium-looking wearable now to rival Motorola’s Moto 360, LG’s G Watch R or the Apple Watch, it doesn’t mean Huawei is abandoning the low-cost activity tracker segment. Not in the slightest, and the uber-cheap, uber-successful TalkBand B1 is up for not one, but two simultaneous sequels. Introduced alongside the Huawei Watch at MWC 2015 in Barcelona, the TalkBand B2 and N1 are clearly much lower-profile… Continue reading Huawei stays committed to basic fitness trackers with TalkBand B2 and N1 Related posts: Huawei TalkBand B1 wearable priced at…

  • Nvidia's Shield Takes On Crysis With Confidence

    Quinten Plummer
    4 Mar 2015 | 3:21 pm
    Nvidia on Tuesday unveiled Shield, an Android TV console that in addition to playing content locally, can stream video games, movies, music, apps and more. Yes, it can play Crysis. That claim, a measure of a gaming PC's power a few years ago, is how Nvidia is marketing the Shield console. Nvidia's Shield Tablet led the way with its Tegra K1 processor and its ability to play Android ports of AAA games natively. The Shield console continues that progress by serving up some of some of the year's biggest games either locally or through Nvidia's cloud gaming service, Grid.
  • Gadget Ogling: A Lovely Sky Snapper, a Grotesque Power Pack and Wafer-Thin Speakers

    4 Mar 2015 | 9:05 am
    There's a new Nikon camera that actually won't work for parents eager to flash their cash at a kid's birthday party with an expensive DSLR when a camera phone would work just fine. The D810A has an infrared filter that might -- probably will -- result in distorted colors when used for everyday purposes. So you might not want to use it for that cute shot of a butterfly nestling on a poppy. However, for nebulas in bloom, this camera apparently comes alive.
  • Twitter's New Safety Rules: Hot Diggity or Hot Air?

    3 Mar 2015 | 12:42 pm
    Twitter last week announced actions to further protect users of its network -- but it left them vague. The company is rolling out unspecified improvements to its reporting process for content issues including impersonation, self-harm, and the sharing of private and confidential information, aka "doxing." It's also beginning to add new enforcement actions for use against accounts that violate its rules. However, in announcing the updates, Tina Bhatnagar, VP of user services, did not specify just what Twitter will do.

    3 Mar 2015 | 5:00 am
    President Barack Obama last week made good on his promise to establish a center for cybersecurity information gathered by agencies of the federal government. It's a laudable initiative -- if it works. The Cyber Threat Intelligence Integration Center will, according to a White House fact sheet, connect the dots regarding malicious foreign cyberthreats to the nation and cyberincidents affecting U.S. national interests. It will provide U.S. policymakers with an all-source analysis of threats.

    3 Mar 2015 | 5:00 am
    A team of open source evangelists is working within the General Services Administration as part of a federal initiative for more transparent government use of technology. 18F, a development unit within the GSA, was established a year ago to tap into the success of the United Kingdom's Government Digital Services unit by pursuing a similar strategy. The unit is tasked with getting developers from Silicon Valley and the ranks of civic developers all over the country to change how federal technology gets done.

    Bill Brenner
    10 Feb 2015 | 5:26 am
    “A ridiculous article which purports to show us the face of a hacker…” — Chris Wysopal, CTO of Veracode, in a tweet The ability of media outlets to create sophisticated images and graphics is light years beyond what it was when I was a young journalist in the 1990s. The technology has spawned a lot of cool projects, like this visual of a botnet from my former employer, The enhanced capability also leads to some truly ridiculous creations. For example, this Secure Thoughts piece on “hackers unmasked.” The writer asks, “Who are the…

    The following is cross-posted from the Security Uncorked blog… My friend Jennifer Minella is doing a series where she asks folks from the security community about three books that changed their lives. She kicks it off with me. In this series, I asked infosec professionals to name 3 books that changed their life. This entry includes picks from journalist, writer and podcaster Bill Brenner.

SiliconANGLE offers a decent analysis of the vulnerabilities and patches. From Maria Deutscher’s report: One flaw that drew an outsized amount of attention is a misconfiguration affecting the enterprise technology stalwart’s popular E-Business Suite, which “gobsmacked” its discoverer, in his own words.

Derek Watson — better known in the security community as Blak Dayz (blakdayz) — posted the following call to action: Hackers. It’s time to UNITE. With these new proposed laws, they are literally coming for our freedom. If you are interested in joining in a fast…

    HTC’s announcement of a virtual reality headset, created in partnership with world-leading games company Valve (Half Life, Portal, Steam…), took Mobile World Congress entirely by surprise on Sunday. We were all feeling pretty clever, thinking we’d already seen everything they had to show (since most of the HTC One M9 material leaked before the launch), and then they beaned us in the side of the head with an amazing-sounding VR headset that somehow stayed a complete secret until the minute it was announced. Well played. I was so excited about the HTC Vive headset –…

    If you want to monitor or track your fitness and diet goals, using your smartphone is an ideal way to do it. Because your smartphone and apps are always with you, they are a constant reminder to check in on your progress, stay the course, and keep your motivation up, as well as actually tracking you, rather than having to wear a smartband at all times. Whether you’re looking for an app to keep you motivated, track your activity levels and weight loss, or actually provide you with workout plans, we’ve found 12 of the best fitness apps to help you keep fit. 1) Gritness If…
  • Amanda Palmer’s had another amazing crowdfunding success

    Diane Shipley
    4 Mar 2015 | 8:34 am
    In 2012, musician, writer, and artist Amanda Palmer raised a massive $1.2 million (approximately £785,000) on Kickstarter for an album, tour, and book. Now she’s in the middle of another huge crowdfunding success thanks to U.S site Patreon. As the name suggests, rather than being for one-off fundraising efforts, Patreon allows fans to support the musicians, writers, and artists they love on an ongoing basis. Like the old-fashioned idea of patronage, except no one has to work in a garret. (Unless they want to.) What this means for Amanda Palmer is that every time she releases a new song,…

    Good news for women working in tech: sexism just isn’t much of a problem in your field. Yes, I know, your colleagues are leaving in their droves, studies have repeatedly shown a huge gender imbalance, and when you go to industry shows you’re too often treated like an honorary booth babe (also, there are booth babes). But according to Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer, there’s no need to even think about gender issues when you’re working in technology. In an interview with Medium’s Backchannel, Mayer was asked whether she thought a male CEO would have been put under the same amount of scrutiny…

    Seven inventors who’ve created promising new technologies are being given a boost by The Royal Academy of Engineering’s Enterprise Hub. All the inventors are based at UK universities, and the Hub will support them to turn their research interests into start-ups over the next year, not least by awarding them each £85,000. They’ll also provide training and mentoring. Some of the projects (a new way to use data to cut petrol usage; making catheters less painful for regular use) are aimed at specialist markets, but others could soon be improving our everyday lives.

  • Windows 10 Universal Apps coming to Xbox One

    James O'Malley
    5 Mar 2015 | 1:17 am
    Over at the Game Devlopers Conference in the States, Xbox head Phil Spencer has announced a bunch of new developments regarding the Xbox One and gaming on Windows. Perhaps most significantly, Spencer confirmed that the Windows 10 “Universal Platform” will be coming to Xbox One when Windows 10 launches later this year. This is a development framework which enables developers to write code that will run on a wide range of Windows devices, including Windows Phone, Windows 10 and now Xbox One. This could conceivably mean we could start seeing more non-game apps coming to Xbox One.

    4 Mar 2015 | 9:55 am
    The trailer for a stand alone expansion to last year’s hit Wolfenstein: The New Order has just arrived courtesy of Bethesda. Wolfenstein: The Old Blood is actually a prequel to last year’s game and takes place in 1946 – just as the Nazis are on the brink of winning WWII (in the game’s alternate reality). Essentially, think like how Far Cry 3 had Blood Dragon made after – using many of the same game assets, but working separately to its parent. Wolfenstein: The Old Blood is due for release on 5th May for a cut price £14.99.
  • Is Nokia making phones… again?!

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:52 am
    Could Nokia be working on a new phone? What once might have been unremarkable is now quite unexpected. So, rewind to last year and you’ll remember that Nokia sold its mobile phone business to Microsoft – and gradually the “Nokia” name has been phased out of Microsoft’s Windows Phones – hence why we have Microsoft Lumia branded phones. So with no mobile phones to produce, what is the remaining chunk of Nokia to do? It seems the answer is… to make mobile phones. According to BGR, a benchmarking website has spotted a new handset branded the Nokia 1100.

    Surprising news out of Samsung today as one of the company’s executives has apparently said that the company won’t be releasing fifty billion new smartwatches, each ever-so-slightly different, like you might expect. According to Trusted Reviews, Young-hee Lee, Executive VP for marketing at Samsung Mobile, said “We’ve been introducing more devices than anybody else. It’s time for us to pause.” What makes this surprising is that Samsung’s previous product strategy seems to have been every time someone in a research lab comes up with a new idea, to bung it into…

  • Samsung files trademarks for OLED TVs in Korea, are they getting ready to release new OLED TVs?

    Ron Mertens
    4 Mar 2015 | 10:12 pm
    According to reports from Korea, Samsung filed for some new trademarks in Korea on January 26: Super UHD OLED, Ultra Super OLED, Samsung Super Ultra OLED, Ultra OLED and Super UHD. Obviously these trademarks (except the last one, perhaps) will be used for UHD (4K) OLED TVs.SDC repeatedly stated that it does not aim to mass produce OLED TVs in 2015. SDC did produce OLED TVs back in 2013, but the production yields were low and they could not keep up with the low prices of LG's OLED TVs. LGD's chosen technology (WRGB and Oxide-TFT, as opposed to SDC's direct-emission and LTPS) has better yields…
  • Apple reportedly signs up SDC to become its second flexible OLED supplier for the next-gen Watch

    Ron Mertens
    4 Mar 2015 | 9:55 pm
    Apple is set to officially launch their Watch wearable device next week. It's been pretty much confirmed that it uses a flexible OLED display produced exclusively by LG Display. Back in June 2014 it was reported that Apple is in talks with Samsung Display to become the second supplier of flexible OLED displays to their wearable devices. A new report from Korea suggests that while LGD remains the sole supplier to the first-gen Apple Watch, Apple has signed a deal with SDC to become the second supplier to the next-generation wearable, which is expected in the second half of 2015 or early 2016.

Huawei's Watch will ship "in the middle of 2015".Another interesting device is HTC's Grip - a fitness tracker that was developed together with Under Armour.

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

    Anupam Varghese
    9 Apr 2014 | 12:53 pm
    "Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who's the most corrupt of them all?"There is this story from the Bible [John 8: 1-11], of a 'condemned' woman, about to be stoned as the 'rules' then required, being brought infront of Jesus. His simple response was to ask anyone from the crowd who had never sinned, to throw the first stone. Each one of the accusers slithered away.I tried to imagine. If this incident had happened in the world we are living in today, not only would she have been stoned by the very people who had 'caught' her, each one of them; her captors would most likely also have been her past…

  • 5 Ways to Make Your Startup Culture More Loving

    Kira M. Newman
    4 Mar 2015 | 5:00 pm
    When we talk about startup culture, we often talk about “fun” – that’s where ping pong, happy hours, and silly mascots come in. But fun can be superficial, especially when there aren’t strong values underpinning it. What type of culture will help startup employees survive the grind? A 2014 study hints at the answer: a culture of love. Specifically, a culture of caring, affection, compassion, and tenderness, which the researchers dubbed “companionate love.” “Imagine a pair of coworkers collaborating side by side, each day expressing caring and affection toward one…
  • 6 Ways Product Managers Actually Manage Fear

    Zainab Zaki

    Product managers spend a lot of time interacting with different teams – executive management, engineering, marketing, sales, customer support to name a few. We spend a large percentage of our time communicating, meeting, emailing, conference calling and talking in general. The reason we do this is because a big part of a product manager’s job is to set and manage expectations. The real reason underlying the management of expectation is actually fear. Fear of missing a deadline, fear of looking bad, fear of failing, fear of being held accountable and ultimately the fear of losing one’s…

Double Agent is a fairly straightforward web companion that offers a behind-the-scenes look at the production of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which is currently in the middle of its second season. Marvel adds a wrinkle to this formula by framing the companion through the eyes of a “double agent” who infiltrates the series set.

I assume that you’ve said ‘yes’ to at least one of those because you were made in the image of God, the consummate, quintessential, original Creator. He made us to be creators, like Him, though not on the same scale. Of course, we rebelled against our Creator and messed everything up, including, especially, the Creator/creature relationship between God and us.

Here are some of what I believe are the most important stats online: Americans spend 2.5 hours/day on mobile devices and 57% of people will not recommend someone if the website looks bad on a mobile device.

    I’m a visual learner.  While I can stumble my way through learning something new on my own, I learn best by watching others work and figuring out why they do things the way they do.  In that spirit, we at ChurchMag thought it would be a good idea to let you peer into the work habits of some of our writers with the hope that you’ll pick up some new ways to get things done.

  • Flexible sensors turn skin into a touch-sensitive interaction space for mobile devices

    3 Mar 2015 | 9:00 pm
    (Saarland University) Computer scientists at Saarland University have developed flexible silicone rubber stickers with pressure-sensitive sensors that fit snugly to the skin. By operating these touch input stickers, users can use their own body to control mobile devices. Because of the flexible material used, the sensors can be manufactured in a variety of shapes, sizes and personalized designs. The researchers will be presenting their project at the Cebit computer expo in Hanover (Stand E13, Hall 9).

(The money will be going to support the families of those killed, though there is a bit of a sour note starting with people trying to sell copies on eBay) If the aim of the shootings was to cow Hebdo and its satire it has been a complete failure so far, and also far any attempt to further inflame France (if anything the UK media seems more cowed than the French). But (and…

    I heard our Prime Minister was proposing to ban encrypyed messaging services in the UK (from the NYT Bits section - I prefer US papers' take on UK tech politics, they are usually more informed and detached than UK pundits): “Are we going to allow a means of communications which it simply isn’t possible to read?” Mr. Cameron said at an event on Monday, in reference to services like WhatsApp, Snapchat and other encrypted online applications. “My answer to that question is: ‘No, we must not.’ ” Mr. Cameron said his first duty was to protect the country against terrorist attacks…

  • European Governments Seeking To Water Down EU's Proposed Data Protection Legislation

    Glyn Moody
    5 Mar 2015 | 12:56 am
    A major reform of the EU data protection rules has been grinding through the system for over three years now, subject to some of the fiercest lobbying yet seen in Europe. The original European Commission proposal was amended and accepted by the European Parliament in 2014, but leaked documents obtained by the European digital rights group EDRi show that the Council of the EU, which is made up of the member state governments, is trying to sabotage the new rules (pdf): Since 2012, the European Commission and the European Parliament both have produced a text that, while not being perfect, would…
  • Auditor: Canadian Law Enforcement's Statistics On ISP Subscriber Data Requests Completely Unreliable

    Tim Cushing
    4 Mar 2015 | 8:56 pm
    Intrusive surveillance programs -- especially domestic surveillance programs -- are sold to wary legislators with promises of stringent oversight and periodic reporting. That's how they're sold. The reality is nowhere near as assuring. The warrantless acquisition of Canadian ISP subscriber information was so thoroughly exploited by law enforcement that by 2011, subscriber data was being requested every 27 seconds. The recent addition of a warrant requirement has slowed these requests to a comparative crawl and resulted in cases being dropped by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). With…

    4 Mar 2015 | 5:00 pm
    The genes that make humans distinct from other animals are being narrowed down. We have a lot in common with other mammals and especially other primates, but relatively tiny differences in a set of genes could explain how human language and intelligence evolved and developed. Understanding the complexity of human intelligence and genetics will likely take decades or longer -- and we may never fully understand every aspect of consciousness. However, we're making some progress and creating some smarter mice along the way. Check out a few of these experiments. Injecting human astrocytes (the…

    Dennis Toeppen of Suburban Express is still deploying his highly-peculiar brand of "customer service" -- something that includes doxxing unhappy customers, suing unhappy customers, suing unhappy customers, suing unhappy customers and being arrested for "harassment through electronic communications." Nothing has changed. Toeppen is still a lawsuit fan who believes negative reviewers or anyone who doesn't fully appreciate how hard it is to run a shuttle bus service should be forced to pay $500 (at least) in "liquidated damages." Now, he's looking to pave himself a downhill slope for his future…

    While net neutrality justifiably received a ton of press attention last week, we were quick to point out that the FCC's other major decision -- to start attacking protectionist state broadband laws -- may just be a bigger deal. These twenty or so laws, as we've explored in detail, are written and lobbied for by incumbent ISPs and prohibit towns and cities from deciding for themselves what they should be able to do regarding local telecom infrastructure. If you realize that neutrality violations are just a symptom of a lack of competition, the FCC's decision to start dismantling the onerous…

    It wasn’t too long ago that we were talking up the potential of the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC, which promised to enable all manner of 4K viewing, streaming and recording on mobile devices. But, we don’t need to belabor the point about 4K being of questionable use on mobile devices—outside of 4K recording, which was possible even before the 810, a 4K display or 4K playback on a mobile device isn’t really desirable. Still, the bump in power and jump to eight cores was interesting in its own right, promising efficiency and performance gains for more complex games and…

    4 Mar 2015 | 1:34 pm
    At the Canonical booth at Mobile World Congress, I had a chance meeting with Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Canonical and spiritual leader of Ubuntu. I was actually at the booth to try out the new Ubuntu Edition of the Meizu MX4, a mid- to high-end smartphone, but all of the untethered devices had run out of battery - every phone, that is, except for Shuttleworth's. Ubuntu Phone looks good on this device. The Verge has an additional story.
  • No reboot patching comes to Linux 4.0

    3 Mar 2015 | 4:06 pm
    With Linux 4.0, you may never need to reboot your operating system again. One reason to love Linux on your servers or in your data-center is that you so seldom needed to reboot it. True, critical patches require a reboot, but you could go months without rebooting. Now, with the latest changes to the Linux kernel you may be able to go years between reboots.

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

    No doubt, there are hundreds of posts this morning in which bloggers are trying to explain the top 10 this or that’s about the episode of Modern Family that aired last night (“Connection Lost,” Season 6, Episode 16). For that reason, I haven’t read any blog posts regarding the show. If this sounds like I’m borrowing the observation of others, I’m actually not (this time, at least). I did read one review and it was insightful (unlike this post, perhaps). It’s written by Gwen Ihnat at AV Club. She calls the episode, “A gimmicky but successful…

    Almost three years ago, to the day, I blogged about Pinterest users (and users of other social media platforms) understanding the reality that if you use a platform controlled by someone else, you are a hamster in their cage (a metaphor I first learned from Dave Winer). The post I wrote three years ago, “Just Because You Can Make Money From Something, Doesn’t Mean You Should, and Other Rules of the Web,” was about Pinterest being accused of “skimming links” — the practice of finding links on their platform  that go to ecommerce sites and converting those…

Most are from the journalists with whom he worked, befriended and inspired. While David Carr and I share a few professional friends and acquaintances, besides a couple of brief chats at SXSW functions or media conferences in New York (the kind that all blur together), I never knew him, knew him.

    For a long time Windows operating system lacked any proper application manager also known as a package manager. A central hub so you can manage all installed applications, get new ones and keep them updated. Mainly, Linux distributions had some form of a package manager. Apple came up with Mac App Store from where users can buy Mac apps, install them and keep them up to date. Having a package manager always made the job easy. It automatically installs all dependencies in case the operating system missed them. With the introduction of Windows 8, Microsoft came up with Windows Store but it…

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

    The bank sends me monthly credit card statements as password-protected PDF files mostly because they contain personal information. I archive these PDFs into Google Drive but, because these files are protected with a password, the text isn’t searchable inside Drive. Also, each PDF file has a different password so it’s impossible to remember them and takes just too much to find these PDFs later.

This may be seen as some kind of extortion but with billions of dollars at stake, the advertising companies have chosen to take the more profitable route. It is estimated that ~5% of website visitors are blocking ads (PDF report) and the situation could be far worse for websites that have a more tech-savvy audience. If you are…

For example, in India there is a significant problem with men creating profiles that impersonate real women, a violation of Facebook’s rules. This makes some women afraid of creating profiles.

And make their marks they did. Digg was an incredibly powerful platform to drive traffic and pageviews to reasonably good content. Initially, the network really had the cream of the Internet crop on its frontpage, and the “Digg effect” would take websites down just like that. Visitors flocked to the homepage…

    To wipe your hard drive means completely erasing all information from the drive such that it cannot be recovered, and usually done for security reasons, to comply with government regulations, or company policies. Whenever you delete a file or format a hard drive, you only delete data from the file system, making the data invisible from immediate view but not gone. The data could still be recovered if someone used recovery software to retrieve the data. Therefore, an extra step is needed to wipe your hard drive completely to guarantee the old data is unreadable. If you have an old computer you…

    Popular social networking sites list keeps on changing as the internet evolves. There are numerous social networking sites, some of which are very popular and known by almost all the internet users. The two most popular social networking sites are the Facebook and Twitter. These and others are used for business and social interactions by family, friends and businesses. Other uses include sharing and updates of news and happenings. Their popularity is thus based on the number of users as well as the impact they have on society. Other social networking sites have a place in society and play a…

    Backlink checker tools help webmasters and bloggers to determine the number and quality of  backlinks to their websites. The success of an online business depends on the number of visits it gets from its target audience. To make that your website visible to internet users, you need to improve its SEO ranking. Google indexes the websites by checking the quality of their backlinks, having a few valid backlinks is therefore better for your website than hundreds of low quality inbound links. To increase traffic, one needs to keep submitting the web link to the backlink building sites and then…

  • AMD’s Liquid VR SDK Aims to Take the Lag Out of VR

    Sam Reynolds
    4 Mar 2015 | 10:12 pm
    Virtual Reality is quickly becoming more and more immersive, but there’s one problem that ruins the illusion: lag. When a user moves their head and the virtual world doesn’t respond as quickly, the illusion is ruined. This is where AMD’s (NASDAQ: AMD) new Liquid VR API comes in. Liquid VR uses a number of different methods to make sure the VR headset is responsive as possible. These methods are Latest Data Latch, Asynchronous Shaders, Affinity Multi-GPU, and Direct To Display. All of these methods are optimized for AMD GPUs, and support multiple GPUs working in-sync. Latest data latch…

    The development of aftermarket car parts is an art form. Whenever high-quality craftsmanship becomes part of a conversation, I always instantly think of the aftermarket car industry. Like so many other parts of the business we encounter, there are certainly companies that provide a subpar product. On the other hand, the aftermarket car industry is filled with companies who’s dedication, persistence and attention to details make them unique in a way. Vorsteiner is part of that group. As you may know, the current generation BMW M4 has been out there for some time now. It is powered by a…

  • Tripod Mount for your Smartphone

    Terry White
    1 Mar 2015 | 9:11 pm
    I’ve reviewed tripod mounts for smartphones before, however the good ones I’ve looked at in the past were fine as long as you only wanted to mount your smartphone horizontally. Horizontal mounting is desired by film makers for sure. There are times when you may want a vertical mount especially if you’re shooting stills or time lapse. For this I turned to the good folks over at Arkon (the makers of mounts for just about any device) and sure enough they had one that was exactly what I was looking for. It had to be able to rotate between horizontal and vertical orientation and…
  • The Logitech Type+ for iPad Air 2 is Just Right

    Terry White
    22 Feb 2015 | 9:11 pm
    This is probably my third or forth Logitech keyboard for iPad and this one by far is the closest one to being perfect. The Logitech Type+ is a both a bluetooth keyboard and protective case. What makes this one better than the previous models is that Logitech made it even thinner so that it doesn’t add much bulk to your nice new iPad Air 2. The keyboard layout is also better. With the previous mode I was constantly hitting the  the home key (returning to the home screen) when trying to type a 1. They moved the home button up to the row at the top on this layout (thank you!). Lastly I…
  • Adobe Photoshop Turns 25

    Terry White
    18 Feb 2015 | 9:11 pm
    Happy Birthday Adobe Photoshop! That’s right folks, it was 25 years today (February 19, 1990) that Adobe released Photoshop 1.0. It’s hard to imagine that what started out as a product that most people at the time didn’t even understand why we’d need it, would become such a phenomenon that entire industries have been built upon. I of course like many of you begin to think back to the first version of Photoshop that I ever used. For me it was Photoshop 2.0. I only used 2.0 for a short time before getting the Photoshop 2.5 upgrade. I guess I was like most people at the…

    I’ve been doing video tutorials since 2006 and I mostly concentrate on the Adobe’s design and photography products. However, I do dabble in the video tools too. Last May I thought it would be helpful to my followers if I released a How To Get Started with Adobe Premiere Pro CC – 10 Things Beginners Want to Know How To Do. Little did I know then that it would rise to the number three spot of my top 10 most watched videos each month with close to a quarter million views to date. Of course the other side effect was that I got tons of requests to do one on After Effects. While I…

  • A Call From Leadership

    Alex Goldfayn
    23 Feb 2015 | 4:38 pm
    If you’re an owner, president, executive, or manager of any kind, there’s a powerful revenue growth action you can take. It requires only a few moments, and it’s memorable, effective and highly productive. Ready? It’s very complex: Call a customer you don’t normally interact with. That’s right. Reach out to a customer, and say something like this: “This is John calling from X Corp. I’m an owner [or VP, or manager] and I’m just reaching to make sure you’re pleased with our work and that we’re serving you well. Just wanted to say…
  • High-Potential Small Customers

    Alex Goldfayn
    16 Feb 2015 | 4:00 pm
    Look at your customers by the amount of revenue they do with you. The 15-20% of companies that do the most revenue with you probably make up 70-80% of your total sales. Now look at the remaining companies — the 80-85% of your customers who are not the biggest revenue generators. How many of them can graduate into your “largest customers” category? Identify them. List them. Write down the name of the human being that buys from you next to each company. If Excel is your preference do it there. These people are your HPSCs: your High-Potential Small Customers. They are your…
  • Worst Customers, Best Customers

    Alex Goldfayn
    9 Feb 2015 | 2:46 pm
    Bill Gates once said famously, “Your most unhappy customers are your greatest source for learning.” That may be, but do you want to learn, or grow your business? Because if it’s the latter, your happiest customers are your greatest source of revenue! Unhappy customers bring us their issues on a daily basis. But the happy ones rarely call to compliment. They stay quiet. Your good work is expected, and taken for granted. We must be proactive about reaching out to our happy customers. We must ask them what they’re happy about, and uncover what we’re best at. More…

    I’m on a Disney cruise ship on our balcony, somewhere in the Caribbean, staring out at the horizon ahead. It’s infinite and endless where the ocean meets the sky, and it occurs to me that I often take it for granted. It’s just there. It’s the same in business, with our customers. What industries do you work in? How hard do you try to move beyond your “sweet spot” customer. What kinds of customers can you sell to? Can you expand your horizons there? What would it take for you to go into a category of customers you are not currently selling it? Also, flip it:…
  • Opening and Closing

    Alex Goldfayn
    26 Jan 2015 | 2:09 pm
    If you want to grow revenue, nothing will do so faster, easier and more dramatically than marketing. Marketing opens what sales closes. We must sell, and we must close. But we must constantly be opening new opportunities. We must consistently create new opportunities for our sales function. If all you do is close, eventually, you’re walled in, trapped, with no opportunities (for growth) in sight. Your pipeline will run dry. To open, we must systematically communicate our value to people who can buy it. That’s all marketing is. To open, to grow, me must market.   The…

  • “The Breakfast Club” Turns 30, Still Has Great Meaning For Molly Ringwald

    4 Mar 2015 | 8:29 pm
    The Breakfast Club was released 30 years ago! Can you believe it? The movie that follows a day in high school dentention in the early 80′s is a cult favorite and one that anyone can find a character to relate to. That is a rare quality, and The Breakfast Club is king of that quality. Teen angst in the 80′s is not quite what it is today, but that fact is lost on a person when they watch this movie whether it’s for the first time or the 30th. It’s universal. That particular quality is what Molly Ringwald, and surely the rest of the cast, treasures about The Breakfast…

However, some might question Victoria Beckham‘s choices for her ad campaign for Victoria, Victoria Beckham. In the odd photo spread, Victoria Beckham’s clothing designs are spot-on. The models, though, seem a little less enthused than they should be. Dead funny or corpsing? Victoria Beckham’s new collection looks like death – —…

    4 Mar 2015 | 8:10 pm
    Motorola changed the game with the announcement of the Motorola Moto E when it was announced last year. What followed was an avalanche of devices in the lower budget price segment which has since given a tremendous value to the customers, in general. Now second time around, with the Motorola Moto E making its way to India, the game is slightly trickier with a lot of players to take on. The likes of Xiaomi with their 1s and Lenovo with their A600, as well as the entire Android One lineup are some of the competitors that have kind of stolen the thunder from Moto a little bit.

    Google has been on a tirade off late to crash and burn anything that it finds mildly inappropriate in order to make sure that the Play Store is a healthier place for everyone to be. It was only recently that, Google had banned Whatsapp+ from the Play Store and Whatsapp had announced that anyone using Whatsapp+ will be banned from using Whatsapp which prompted a large exit from the application usage. Not to be let down by the tirade, the developer of Whatsapp+ went on to develop another application called Telegram+ which in a way does exactly what Whatsapp+ did by enhancing the features and…

Despite not having the looks of a Miss World, the device is the smartwatch that you would want especially as it ensures that you get the sort of battery life that is least expected out of a smartwatch. Add in a couple of new sensors, a color display and support for everything that Android Wear does, and you can see why Pebble Time will do well despite looks that would give envy to somebody in a graveyard.

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

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…

    7 Dec 2014 | 10:03 pm
    Help Wanted: Why You Need to Protect Job Applicants’ Identities — And How to Do It? Most people are aware of the risk of identity theft by now, and in most situations, take every precaution necessary to protect their personal information. They know, for example, not to respond to phishing emails asking for account information, or to send their Social Security number via email. However, there is one situation in which their usual caution flies out the window, and they put their identities at risk: during the job hunt. Think about how much personal information that the average job seeker…
  • Easily Convert DVD To iPhone6 With DVDFab DVD Ripper

    26 Nov 2014 | 12:09 am
    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. But…

    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.

  • World Of Warcraft – Blandad Glad Nostalgi Och Ångest

    4 Mar 2015 | 8:00 pm
    Spelar WoW Jag skulle vilja kort och gott sammanfatta mina blandade känslor för min tid som WoW-spelare. Först och främst så har vi: Nostalgin Japp. Det var ändå jävligt goa tider. Sitter på vent med 4 polare och lirar på kvällarna. Vilken gemenskap. Min brorsa lirade ett tag och därmed hans polare vilka också var najs. Sen var WoW något jag även var rikigt bra på. En kombination av naturlig talang och ren nördighet ligger antagligen som grund. Så många roliga tillfällen när man var newbie och inte fattade hur saker funkade. Blir nästan gråtfärdig när jag tänker på…
  • Diablo 2 – En Gammal Goding

    4 Mar 2015 | 9:03 am
    Diablo! (Ursäkta bilden men hittade ingen av den äkta diablo så det fick bli en generell Djävul istället) Diablo 2 är ett av de få spel som jag höll mig till en väldigt lång period i sträck. Dryga 2 år, något uppehåll här och där och sen tillbaks till Dibbe (smeknamn för diablo 2). Flera av mina polare spelade det, vilket bidrog till beroendet det orsakade. Men kul var det! Detta var många år sedan dock, i högstadiet främst. En form av status Jag läste någon stans att spelande ofta är så beroende just för att det ger en chans till en ny persona med ny status. De som…

    Hyaluronsyra Tjo. Istället för en typisk recension skulle jag här vilja berätta en kort liten historia som jag tycker talar för sig själv vad gäller det här kosttillskottet. Egentligen är det ett kombinerat kosttillskott med hyaluronsyra, kondroitinsulfat och hydroliserat kollagen. Det används främst för ledbesvär men har även en positiv effekt på huden. Men nu till min historia. Början på det hela För snart tre år sedan sprang jag Göteborgsvarvet. Eller ptja.. Jag sprang halva, resterande del haltade jag mig igenom.

Jag har testat det mesta. Däribland diverse kosttillskott. Ett av dessa, som jag för tillfället tar dagligen, är Glukosamin. Vad är Glukosamin för något?

Med tanke på hur få gånger jag ens varit i Stockholm så är andelen gånger jag även besökt Gröna Lund ganska stor. Det jag minns allra mest är utan tvekan det upp-och-ner-vända huset. Det var nåt nytt det minsann. Sedan fanns där en och annan cool berg-och-dal-bana med, även om Liseberg trumpat dem på senare år.

    “Anyone with an internet connection and an idea can develop an audience.” These words were spoken by actor Kevin Spacey at last year’s Content Marketing World to 2,600 marketing professionals and, to put it simply, he’s right.

    18 Feb 2015 | 6:50 am
    One thing I’ve learned over the years in marketing is that if you’re not challenging yourself to come up with new ideas, your efforts will eventually plateau. A robust amount of leads won’t just magically come in each month when you put your marketing on autopilot. But maybe your company is set with its services and products. Then what? Well, it’s time to get creative. Offer these services and products in a new way. You can sell the same thing for years as long as you adapt the way you’re selling it. To do so, many are turning to custom development, like apps and microsites or…

For those of you with multiple monitor setups you might think it is odd but it works for me and forces me to concentrate on the task at hand (or it would if I didn't have a tablet and phone as well). Visiting a friend over xmas I connected the laptop to a large HD screen to watch a movie. I was surprised to see that the resolution on the laptop also increased. How was that possible? How was my laptop displaying at a higher resolution when connected…
  • Free Joomla Support

    5 Feb 2015 | 9:40 am
    Everyday I receive emails, tweets, facebook and skype messages seeking free Joomla support. It is usually "urgent" and always without enough information for me to answer correctly. I am happy to help anyone at anytime with their Joomla web site but are you really using the best and quickest way to ask for that help? I might not be online. I might be busy. I am not being rude and ignoring you. I just can't answer the question from the information that you have asked. From today I will no longer be responding to any free Joomla support requests via twitter, skype, email or facebook. Get Free…
  • Front End Module Editing in Joomla 3.4

    30 Jan 2015 | 10:22 am
    In all the years that I have used Joomla I have never really seen the need for front end editing. Why bother? I could just do everything in the admin. There were always too many things that I couldn't do on the front end that meant I was forever switching between the two. Editing your site can be hard I get it that people don't want to be bothered with the complex interface of the administrator and prefer to edit their content in place. This has been possible for a very long time in Joomla for content items but not for modules. So you still needed to switch to the admin interface to edit…
  • That's a great question

    28 Jan 2015 | 9:21 am
    For years when creating web sites we've added a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section to our site. Please stop NOW. You don't need an FAQ The usual answer is that this is where we put all the questions that people are always asking us and it saves time answering the same questions over and over again. That's why it is called "frequently asked questions" - makes sense doesn't it. NO! Think about it Why is everyone asking those questions? There are several reasons but they all come down to it being your fault. If you had written clearer content then people wouldn't have any questions. If you…

  • The Changing Face of Technology and Innovation

    24 Feb 2015 | 7:19 pm
    A friend of mine’s son recently returned from an extended absence which basically removed him from nearly all aspects of technology, including the Internet, for a bit longer than 5 years. Upon return, observing him restore his awareness of technologies and absorb all things new developed over the past 5 years was both exciting and moving. To be fair, the guy grew up in an Internet world, with access to online resources including Facebook, Twitter, and other social applications. The interesting part of his re-introduction to the “wired” world was watching the comprehension flashes he…
  • Can IT Standards Facilitate Innovation?

    9 Feb 2015 | 11:38 am
    IT professionals continue to debate the benefits of standardization versus the benefits of innovation, and the potential of standards inhibiting engineer and software developer ability to develop creative solutions to business opportunities and challenges.  At the Open Group Conference in San Diego last week (3~5 February) the topic of  standards and innovation popped up not only in presentations, but also in sidebar conversations surrounding the conference venue. In his presentation “SOA4BT (Service-Oriented Architecture for Business Technology) – From Business Services to…
  • SDNs in the Carrier Hotel

    28 Jan 2015 | 4:41 pm
    Carrier hotels are an integral part of global communications infrastructure.  The carrier hotel serves a vital function, specifically the role of a common point of interconnection between facility-based (physical cable in either terrestrial, submarine, or satellite networks) carriers, networks, content delivery networks (CDNs), Internet Service Providers (ISPs), and even private or government networks and hosting companies. In some locations, such as the One Wilshire Building in Los Angeles, or 60 Hudson in New York, several hundred carriers and service providers may interconnect physically…
  • Risk Management Strategies for IT Systems

    26 Jan 2015 | 3:28 pm
    Risk management has been around for a long time.  Financial managers run risk assessments for nearly all business models, and the idea of risk carries nearly as many definitions as the Internet.  However, for IT managers and IT professionals, risk management still frequently takes a far lower priority that other operations  and support activities. For IT managers a good, simple definition for RISK may be from the Open FAIR model which states: “Risk is defined as the probable frequency and magnitude of future loss”   Risk management should follow a structured process acknowledging…

SDNs, or more specifically provisioning automation platforms service provider interconnections, and have crept into nearly all marketing materials and elevator pitches in discussions with submarine cable operators, networks, Internet Exchange Points, and carrier hotels.

    By Marilyn Craig & Mary Ludloff Welcome back to the third post in our series on how to get value from your data.

We would like to remind you that sifting through the media coverage, books, blog posts, and research studies has been no easy task and trying to understand how all of it fits into the larger privacy landscape has been even harder.

    10 Dec 2014 | 5:02 pm
    By: Mary Ludloff and Terence Craig We’ve been promising an update to our book, Privacy and Big Data, since the just pre- and mostly post-Snowden era. When we proposed and wrote the book it was to fill a void. At the time, there was a lack of mainstream attention to the issues of privacy by the media and a lack of understanding of the issues and implications we all face in the digital world. As tech veterans of long standing, we have seen our world transformed for better and for worse by our industry. Much of the “worst” we chronicled in our book and at the time its release, many…

  • Leveraging User Activity Monitoring to Protect Information and Employees from Cyber Threats

    David Monahan
    4 Mar 2015 | 1:46 pm
    Historically, many organizations and personnel have been concerned about user activity monitoring (UAM). Certain business cultures feel that these activities are an invasion of privacy or are distrustful. However, in today’s Internet connected, data driven world, having specific information or data means the difference in being a market leader and being out of business. Identifying threats to employees and organizational information is key to maintaining confidentiality, integrity and availability. Maintaining the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information is paramount for…

    A few weeks ago, I briefed with a new company called PFP Cybersecurity, also known as Power Fingerprinting, Inc., and was so intrigued by the concept alone that I wrote a Vendor to Watch about them. They officially launched on January 26, , and currently their claim to fame is their physics-based scanning technology which monitors the electromagnetic frequency (EMF) emanations of a microchip while operating. It then compares those readings to either a previous reading or to an established manufacturer’s baseline to determine the state of the chip. There are numerous uses for the technology…
  • Redefining WAN in Light of Cloud

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

    12 Feb 2015 | 8:18 pm
    Have you ever tried to create a major slide presentation on a tablet? Or edit a large spreadsheet? Or write a long document? Probably not. While it’s certainly possible to perform more substantial business tasks on a tablet, the small screen real estate and limited system resources (e.g., processing speed, memory, graphic support, etc.) are typically insufficient in current tablet form factors. However, carrying a laptop around with you everywhere you go just so you can access email is not very practical either. The reality is that we live in a multi-device world where the average worker…

  • DreamFactory — let there be (mobile) API for everyone!

    4 Feb 2015 | 2:00 am
    Since the advent of Web 2.0, social interaction is king. Now, almost every single mobile app works in the environment of its users exchanging ideas through content authoring, comments, likes and shares. Even the simplest and most “personal” of them, like personal planners, address books and to-do lists, enable users to put their data in the cloud, share them with others and access them using a myriad of devices and interfaces. The bottom line is that every one of them needs a back-end and an API to talk to. All projects are executed through tight cooperation between back-end…

  • 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…

Just to be clear then, my criteria for whether a book makes it into my top 100 is primarily based on the practical, real effect it has on you awakening from the dreary, matrix-like slumber induced…

  • The Uncertain Inevitability of Mobile Payments

    3 Mar 2015 | 7:56 am
    Imagine a world in which you pay for everything you buy with just a smartphone. That dress you see in the store window, shoes to match, a delicious meal at the new restaurant in town, a cup of coffee on your way to work, and even groceries at the local supermarket. All paid for using mobile payments apps on your smartphone. No more pulling credit or debit cards out of your wallet. In fact, you don’t even carry a wallet any more. It’s just you and your phone. Despite my feeble attempt to make it read like a trailer for a movie adaptation of a Philip K. Dick novel (Minority Report,…

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

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

You basically bring your iPhone close to the payment terminal which is waiting for payment and your cards stored in the passbook will automagically appear on your screen. If you have your finger already on the Touch ID, it would just go ahead and authorize the payment with your default card.

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

    Once again, your friendly neighbourhood techie has used this powers for the good of the country. Last September, I scrapped all the procurement data from the Malaysian’s Government MyProcurement website, this time I scrapped all the Air Pollutant Index (API) readings from the Department of Environment (DOE) website. First off, Kudos to the DOE for keeping such great tabs on the data–overall the DOE publishes one API reading for every hour or every day across 52 locations in Malaysians.

  • What happened in the MAS hack. All questions answered, one question asked.

    29 Jan 2015 | 7:11 am
    Late in January the Malaysian Airlines website was ‘supposedly’ hacked by Lizard Squad. You  might remember Lizard Squad as the guys who ‘hacked’ the XBox and Play Station network over the Christmas holidays, and I’m using a lot of ‘quotes’ here because Lizard Squad didn’t really ‘hack’ XBox One or Playstation, they merely DDOS-ed the services. What is DDOS-ed I hear you say? A DDOS attack is one where you flood a server with so much web traffic, that the server is no longer able to serve content to legitimate customers. Imagine if…

    As we come to terms with the terrible events that occurred at the offices of Charlie Hebdo, I think we need to be cognizant of  what these attacks really mean, and how our response to these events (even in far away Malaysia) has severe repercussions on our future. As a Blogger and Techie, I’m 100% for absolute ‘no holds-barred’ Freedom of expression.. I’ve written so much on the subject it begins to bore people, but we have so little freedom of expression in this country, we must fight to preserve what we have, and rise up to pursue even more.

    Yesterday I Googled something about maxis that took me to a link. Unfortunately, Firefox wasn’t happy with Maxis, because I got the following screen: Firefox is the first of the mainstream browsers to end support of SSLv3, ever since Poodle was published. For those of you who aren’t keeping tabs of security issues–Poodle was a big vulnerability discovered in the 2nd half of 2014, that affected the SSLv3 protocol. The only fix for Poodle was to completely stop using SSLv3 altogether, not a bad idea, since the protocol itself is nearly 18 years old. In other…

In time, post-GTX 960’s launch, slowly information came out via other review sources that there is indeed an issue with the last 0.5GB VRAM.

    Dear EarthTalk: The cold winter we’re having here in the Northeast has convinced me to finally beef up my home’s insulation, but I’ve heard that spray foam can off-gas noxious chemicals and pollute the indoor environment.

    Biometric security devices were long held ideals in science fiction movies that seemed plausible enough to actually happen, but a little too far-fetched for real world application. While law enforcement, and high-security facilities have been using biometric identification for decades, we’re now living in a world that is making a real push toward biometrics for both identification and access-based technology in consumer goods.

  • 4 Ways to Find GPS Coordinates for Any Location

    Aseem Kishore
    28 Feb 2015 | 2:29 am
    There are certain occasions when you need the exact coordinates for a specific location, but most map applications don’t show that kind of data front and center because it’s not something that is needed very often. I’ve learned that getting the GPS coordinates can be very handy if your GPS device can’t find a specific address. If you’re like me and haven’t updated your Garmin or TomTom in years, then a lot of newer areas simply won’t show up when you search for them. Also, if you are short on data usage, it’s probably not a good idea to use…

    Aseem Kishore
    26 Feb 2015 | 10:44 pm
    Have you recently downloaded a UIF file and now want to mount it so that you can view the contents? A UIF file is actually a MagicISO CD/DVD image file. The file can contain documents, photos, videos, etc. In order to view the contents, you have to first mount the UIF image file. There are many formats for creating images files of CD/DVDs, but UIF is used because it provides better encryption and also has better compression. The most common image format is ISO. Instead of trying to mount a UIF directly, the best option is to convert the UIF image to an ISO image and then mount the ISO image.

I mean how is it possible to get traffic, leads and sales on “autopilot”… the same numbers week after week without a lot of input on your part? Didn’t seem possible.

  • How to Remove the Ribbon UI From Windows 8.1

    Vamsi Krishna
    3 Mar 2015 | 4:25 pm
    Microsoft introduced the Ribbon UI in Windows 8 and 8.1 to replace the classic toolbar UI that has been around since the beginning of Windows. The Ribbon UI is first introduced in Microsoft Office and was then ported to the operating system. This new user interface lays out all the menu items in a nice horizontal view which can be easily toggled on and off with just a click. Since the pros outweigh the cons, most Windows users welcomed the change. But the downside is that for those who still prefer the good old toolbar, there is no option to remove the Ribbon UI.

    4 Mar 2015 | 8:51 pm
    When NASA’s Dawn spacecraft is captured into orbit around the dwarf planet Ceres on Friday, March 6, there will be no fanfare in mission control. In fact, the spacecraft won’t even be in radio contact. There’s no need, because Dawn’s path is set – this is a spacecraft unlike any other. What makes Dawn unique is its ion propulsion system, which gives the spacecraft incredible manoeuvrability. Instead of using large bursts of thrust to get where it’s going, Dawn takes the slow and steady approach. Its ion engine delivers a tiny but continuous thrust that can last for days or weeks…

Um … you know he was breast fed until he was eight? Unsurprisingly, there weren’t too many girls that hung around long enough to determine the sincerity (or not) of this helpful little factoid.

    At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2015) in Las Vegas, the big theme was the “Internet of things” (IoT) — the idea that everything in the human environment, from kitchen appliances to industrial equipment, could be equipped with sensors and processors that can exchange data. But, realizing that vision requires transmitters that are powerful enough to broadcast to devices dozens of yards away but energy-efficient enough to last for months — or even to harvest energy from heat or mechanical vibrations. A key challenge is designing these circuits with extremely low standby…

  • All flash storage performance testing

    24 Feb 2015 | 1:21 pm
    There are some serious problems with measuring IO performance of all flash arrays with what we use on disk storage systems.

NAND garbage collection First off, garbage collection is required by any SSD or NAND storage to be able to write data. Garbage collection coalesces free space by moving non-modified data to new pages/blocks and freeing up the space held by old, no-longer current data. The problem is NAND garbage collection takes place only after a suitable amount of write activity and…

  • Containers – What are they? And, their history! – Part 2

    6 Feb 2015 | 8:03 am
    In the earlier article, I explained the hurdles in the traditional and virtualized ways of implementing workloads. Also, we looked how the DevOps challenges are demanding changes the continuous delivery and integration processes. Towards the end, I’d mentioned that Containers are an answer. In today’s article, we will see what are containers and some history behind containerization. Let us get started. In the subsequent parts, we will dig into each building block used within container technologies and understand how to use them. Note: If you are not a Linux user or never even…

  • Containers – What are they? Why do you need one? – Part 1

    20 Jan 2015 | 8:49 am
    Containers? No, not the shipping containers but the much-hyped container technology in the computer industry. I am sure even if you have not used any of the existing container technologies, you must have at least read or heard about them. I am not the first one to write about containers and this is certainly not an in-depth overview of container technologies. I will eventually get there and show you how you can deploy different container technologies. This series of articles is about my own thoughts and a documentation for my own reference. In the process, I wish to help my readers as well.

  • Confessions of a Technology Profiler

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

    Joe Kinsella
    27 Jan 2015 | 5:43 am
    I get asked on a regular basis what I’m looking for in engineers. I think most people are expecting the answers found in a typical job description - e.g. CS degree or equivalent, 4+ years commercial software experience, work experience with modern language (i.e. Python, Ruby, Scala), multi-threaded programming, and so on. But there is a fundamental truth of hiring that often gets lost in traditional job descriptions: great engineers are not defined by their degree, number of years experience, or the technologies they work with - but by their core abilities / traits. Here are the 5 abilities…

    It’s no secret some of the best job opportunities in the Boston area are in technology startups. Last year venture capitalists invested almost $5 billion in local companies, making the tech sector one of the fastest growing segments of our local economy. In addition to the professional freedom and challenges that comes with joining a startup, the re-opened IPO market and a steady flow of M&A hold out the possibility of financial success should you pick a winner. But choosing the right startup can be challenging for professionals already in the community, and even more so for those…

    Last year while reading Walter Isaacson's The Innovators, I was surprised to learn about The Mother of All Demos, a presentation by computing pioneer Douglas Engelbart in 1968. A YouTube video of the presentation is provided below. In the video you can see the heritage of many of the modern technologies and services upon which our industry is built (e.g. personal computer, mouse, document collaboration, peer to peer networking, and more).

    24 Jan 2015 | 10:54 am
    I’ve made a few visits to Andreessen Horowitz over the last two years, and each time paid little attention to the books on the wall to wall bookshelves in the lobby. Arriving a little early for an informal coffee meeting last November, I spent a few minutes reviewing the books, which ranged from histories (e.g. Ambrose’s D Day) to tech non-fiction (e.g. Innovator’s Dilemma) to self-help / how-tos (e.g. Learning Rails). When the partner I was meeting came out, I couldn’t help but ask: “Where do all the books come from? Partners bring them in?” “Oh no,” he said. “Those all…

But here’s my experience: 1. I created an account and tried to add my bank account and credit card to deposit money into the system (as Bitcoin). I had to give a lot of personal information. And I had to take a photo of my drivers license. And then I had to take a selfie.
