    Although we've definitely seen a number of thought-controlled prosthetic arms before, most of those have been activated by implants in the user's motor cortex, which is the brain's movement-control center. The arms' resulting movements have been somewhat jerky, plus there's typically been a delay between the user thinking about moving the arm, and the actual movement taking place. Now, however, a team of researchers has announced the results of an experiment in which those limitations were greatly reduced...

The demo was previously only able to run at Oculus' 90 FPS target VR framerate on the Nvidia GTX 980, a GPU which costs nearly $200 more than the PS4 itself.

    After WWII, with the return of millions of G.I.’s who gained access to government loans to buy houses, the concept of the middle class in the US began to expand. As they assimilated back into the US and, more importantly, became an meaningful part of the United States’ economic recovery by getting jobs, buying homes and having disposable income, it expanded our consuming culture and helped make the US the prosperous nation we are today.  What we experienced with the rise of the US middle class in the 1950s has started to take place in broader international markets today.

Now the railway covers more than 2,600 miles, stretching from Havana in the west to Santiago de Cuba on the eastern coast.It has a reputation for being the cheapest — but also the slowest — way to travel from one side of the country to the other.Passengers wait to board the train in the Central Station in Havana.A man looks out of the railway car at a passing train that is heading west, to Havana, near the…

  • Paper Says Public Doesn't Know How To Keep Score In Privacy Discussion While Glossing Over Government Surveillance

    Tim Cushing
    22 May 2015 | 7:39 pm
    Lawfare -- a blog primarily devoted defending the practices of spy agencies -- has released a paper authored by Benjamin Wittes and Jodie Liu that theorizes that the public's concern over privacy encroachments are -- if not overblown -- then failing to properly factor in the privacy "gains" they've obtained over the past several years. The theory is solid, but the paper fails to differentiate between what sort of privacy losses people find acceptable and which ones they don't -- mainly by leaving privacy invasions by government entities almost completely undiscussed. It opens by quoting a…
  • TPP Moves Forward In Senate With Fast Track; On To The House

    As was widely expected after last week's vote, the Senate has now voted in favor of fast track for trade agreements (officially "Trade Promotion Authority") after Republican Senators convinced enough of their Democratic counterparts to give up their Constitutional authority in regulating international commerce (yes, you read that right: Republicans who keep complaining about the President taking too much power and not obeying the Constitution, just voted explicitly to give up Constitutional authority to the President of the other party, while most Democrats declined to do so).

    Some folks like to drink coconut water because it tastes good -- not because it's a fashionable, semi-exotic-sounding liquid that has some specious health claims. Some fads, like drinking raw milk are actually not that healthy. But if you just like trying out new stuff to drink (and carry around in a bottle or cup), check out a few of these links. Maybe it's just in Brooklyn that it's cool to drink bone broth from a coffee cup. As long as it's not as expensive as $6 toast, who can argue against a tasty cup of soup?

  • Monsanto And Syngenta About To Receive Dozens Of Patents On Unpatentable Plants

    Glyn Moody
    22 May 2015 | 3:16 pm
    Last month we wrote about the strange case of unpatentable plants becoming patentable in Europe thanks to a decision from the European Patent Office's Enlarged Board of Appeal. That cleared the way for companies to obtain such patents, and according to this post on the "no patents on seeds" site -- I think you can probably work out where its biases lie -- that's about to happen: the European Patent Office (EPO) is about to grant 30 patents on plants derived from conventional breeding to Monsanto and its affiliated companies. The Swiss company Syngenta can expect to receive around a dozen…
  • Florida Governor Signs One Bill Protecting Free Speech... And Another That Undermines It

    Mike Masnick

    On Thursday, Governor Rick Scott of Florida signed 44 bills into law, but two of them are particularly interesting to us. The first we wrote about back in March, SB 604, is a very problematic bill that undermines some basic free speech rights. It's the latest in a new push by Hollywood to undermine anonymity online as a backdoor attack on copyright infringement. Basically, it says that if you're distributing any sort of audiovisual work, you need to reveal who you are. The implications here are massive. There are lots of cases where someone may wish to post certain audiovisual works without…

    Jesse
    20 May 2015 | 10:37 pm
    After my crash and burn at the Leona Divide 50/50 race I thought I’d take some time to carefully pick the next race. It was between the Born To Run 50k (30 miler) and the XTERRA Malibu Creek 22k which I had run the year before. The BTR race looked like fun but I finally decided to focus on a course I’ve already run and to shoot for a PR on the XTERRA race. You can see some of my training for the race last year here and this is my race report for XTERRA Malibu Creek 2014. Now that I’ve started using Strava.com to post workouts and track the activity of others I’m able…

    I ran the Leona Divide 50k race yesterday with about 500 other trail running fanatics. Unfortunately my race ended around mile 21 when I chose to drop. It was a tough race and thoughts and emotions are still swirling but wanted to put things down in writing although I’m sure my thoughts and judgments will change over the next few days and weeks. The Leona Divide 50k was part of long term plan to attempt and finish my first ultra this year. In December I started training for my first attempt, the Sean O’Brien 50k but then I figured I should attempt a trail marathon so I switched…

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…

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…

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…

    The United States and its leading Western allies, known as the "Five Eyes," reportedly planned to hack into smartphones through their links to Google and Samsung's app stores. They wanted to infect apps with spyware and find ways to send misinformation to targets, according to documents released to the media by National Security Agency whistle-blower Edward Snowden. The intelligence agencies also apparently began targeting the mobile browser UC Browser in late 2011, after discovering it leaked revealing details about its users.

    The latest edition of Simplicity Linux, version 15.4, recently became available for download. Simplicity Linux delivers just what its name suggests: It is a simpler way to run a fully powered Linux desktop on any computer you touch. Simplicity lets you carry your entire desktop, favorite installed applications, and complete collection of documents and files in your pocket everywhere you go. Other Linux distros let you do much the same thing -- but solutions like Puppy Linux, Porteus, Knoppix and such are a bit trickier to set up and configure.

    Russia wants to develop alternatives to proprietary or partly closed mobile operating systems by using open source tools as a foundation, Minister of Telecom and Mass Communications Nikolay Nikiforov said last week. "Success would make a fairly significant impact on the go-to market plans of numerous IT vendors. We are seeing the beginnings of similar efforts in China, a market that has long been central to many vendors' future plans and hopes," said Charles King, principal analyst at Pund-IT.

  • The Way Forward for Chris Roberts, One World Labs

    Bill Brenner
    18 May 2015 | 4:42 am
    The plight of One World Labs Founder Chris Roberts has been picked to death on social media this past week. There’s all the trouble he’s in with the FBI for his airplane-hacking claims. There’s the hit to his company, which had to let a lot of good security talent go last week. Some shake their heads in disbelief because he apparently spoke to the FBI about his activities without a lawyer present. Others saw this saga as an example of hackers shooting off their mouths without the scruples to back it up. Me? I’m looking at this and seeing a way forward for Chris…

    Some folks in the security industry see me as a member of the “Equal Respect” movement against so-called booth babes at conferences. Not exactly. I certainly respect the opinion of people attached to the cause, and good for them, fighting for what they believe in. But for me, this has never been about equal respect among the genders. It’s never been about whether women who work as booth babes are being exploited sexually. For me, it’s been about holding vendors’ feet to the fire and making them work harder to build an exhibit off the strength of the products. To…

    21 Apr 2015 | 6:24 am
    At RSA Conference 2015 here in San Francisco, there’s a lot of discussion about weaknesses to the electrical and wifi systems aboard airplanes. The discussion often turns to the case of hacker Chris Roberts (@Sidragon1 on Twitter). There’s been a lot of strong reaction to news of Roberts being pulled from a plane for jokingly tweeting that he might mess around with the plane’s electronic systems. There’s a lot of overreaction to this story. The TSA and feds certainly overreacted. But those who hold Roberts up as a victim of government oppression are overreacting, too.

  • STT-MRAM MTJ cells can be used to mimick the human brain's synapses

    mram
    24 Apr 2015 | 11:17 pm
    Researchers from France's Universite Paris-Sud and the CEA institute say that the probabilistic nature of STT-MRAM devices can be used to create synapses-like neuro system. This can be used to create efficient devices that mimic the human's brain method of operation.MRAM cells (or MTJs) store data using electrons magnetic spin. The technology uses stochastic switching, and so to be sure that a bit is set, you have to applying a current in the MTJ for a long enough time (to increase the probability of the spin changes). In these new experiments, the researchers take advantage of the stochastic…

Existing cloud storage platforms either store user information without any encryption, or they store account logins, passwords, and encryption keys for data right on their own servers. It bothered the team so much so that they went out and built their own solution in Cloudifile, which was recently launched into beta for iOS. The platform they built automatically encrypts data for secure cloud-sharing and local file storage. Currently, the company…

He uses the though experiment of a 2 industry economy, one with hi tech, high wage manufacturing and low tech, low wage dog grooming. Over time the high tech labour gets displaced by automation and more people become dog groomers, so average wages in the population fall, those left in manufacturing get…

    This year, Samsung claimed that it would sell 70 million GalaxyS6 and S6 Edge by the end of 2015. The company also had claimed that it had taken 20M pre-orders prior the release of both phones. Reports by a Korean news agency, Yonhap, a Samsung official stated and confirmed that the sales of the phone after a month crossed 10 Million. The company didn’t mention when they had crossed 10 million but they only have 7 months to sell out the remaining 60 Million Units. This news is extremely disappointing as on an average they have to sell 8.6 Million units per month. Analysts are still…

  • Adblock To Release An Ad-Filtering Browser For Android

    We all love to browse the web, be it on PC or on smartphones. And while browsing it is not wrong to expect a distraction-free browsing experience. But it is not the case most of the times with tons of pop-ups and spam distracting your  browsing experience. What do you do in that case? In case of smartphones you would probably switch to another browser, or may be install another app to block the ads and pop-ups. If you are using PC you may install some browser extensions or add-ons to keep the ads away. One of the popular ad-blocking extension for the desktops is Adblock Plus which provides…

  • Paper Says Public Doesn't Know How To Keep Score In Privacy Discussion While Glossing Over Government Surveillance

    Tim Cushing
    22 May 2015 | 7:39 pm
    Lawfare -- a blog primarily devoted defending the practices of spy agencies -- has released a paper authored by Benjamin Wittes and Jodie Liu that theorizes that the public's concern over privacy encroachments are -- if not overblown -- then failing to properly factor in the privacy "gains" they've obtained over the past several years. The theory is solid, but the paper fails to differentiate between what sort of privacy losses people find acceptable and which ones they don't -- mainly by leaving privacy invasions by government entities almost completely undiscussed. It opens by quoting a…
  • TPP Moves Forward In Senate With Fast Track; On To The House

    Mike Masnick
    22 May 2015 | 6:16 pm
    As was widely expected after last week's vote, the Senate has now voted in favor of fast track for trade agreements (officially "Trade Promotion Authority") after Republican Senators convinced enough of their Democratic counterparts to give up their Constitutional authority in regulating international commerce (yes, you read that right: Republicans who keep complaining about the President taking too much power and not obeying the Constitution, just voted explicitly to give up Constitutional authority to the President of the other party, while most Democrats declined to do so).

  • DailyDirt: Trendy Drinks

    Some folks like to drink coconut water because it tastes good -- not because it's a fashionable, semi-exotic-sounding liquid that has some specious health claims. Some fads, like drinking raw milk are actually not that healthy. But if you just like trying out new stuff to drink (and carry around in a bottle or cup), check out a few of these links. Maybe it's just in Brooklyn that it's cool to drink bone broth from a coffee cup. As long as it's not as expensive as $6 toast, who can argue against a tasty cup of soup?

  • Monsanto And Syngenta About To Receive Dozens Of Patents On Unpatentable Plants

    Glyn Moody
    22 May 2015 | 3:16 pm
    Last month we wrote about the strange case of unpatentable plants becoming patentable in Europe thanks to a decision from the European Patent Office's Enlarged Board of Appeal. That cleared the way for companies to obtain such patents, and according to this post on the "no patents on seeds" site -- I think you can probably work out where its biases lie -- that's about to happen: the European Patent Office (EPO) is about to grant 30 patents on plants derived from conventional breeding to Monsanto and its affiliated companies. The Swiss company Syngenta can expect to receive around a dozen…
  • Florida Governor Signs One Bill Protecting Free Speech... And Another That Undermines It

    Mike Masnick

    On Thursday, Governor Rick Scott of Florida signed 44 bills into law, but two of them are particularly interesting to us. The first we wrote about back in March, SB 604, is a very problematic bill that undermines some basic free speech rights. It's the latest in a new push by Hollywood to undermine anonymity online as a backdoor attack on copyright infringement. Basically, it says that if you're distributing any sort of audiovisual work, you need to reveal who you are. The implications here are massive. There are lots of cases where someone may wish to post certain audiovisual works without…

    C.K. Sample III
    12 May 2015 | 2:55 pm
    Not even a week into this new lifestyle choice and I’m loving it. In case you missed my previous post on the topic, I finally decided to ditch cable TV and save close to $1500 a year in the process. It looks like a lot of people are doing this now more than ever. I suspect HBO Now was a tipping point for a lot of people. I know it’s one of the things that got me and Kristin talking about it. Pain Points aka why can’t I pause live TV anymore… Now there are some slight pain points to cutting the cord. The one most noticeable to me has been the lack of DVR capabilities on…

    7 May 2015 | 7:48 pm
    This week, I finally got sick of paying a premium for ALL THE CHANNELS provided by Time Warner Cable. Our primary DVR/cable box in our main room died a horrible death of infinite reboots on Sunday, and I took it in to the local Time Warner store to swap it out for a new one on Monday. The new one had a different problem that made it unusable. Tuesday I went back to exchange that box. They told me I was in luck, that their brand new amazing box that lets you record 7 channels at once was available… but, then, the support person assisting me couldn’t get the system to actually let…

If you go to the show, you’ll see some of these between the acts. If you’re there Friday night, hopefully I’ll see you there!

The Lucknow Food Safety and Drug Administration of India found excess amounts of monosodium glutamate (MSG) and lead in samples of Maggi collected in Uttar Pradesh. And then they wrote to the FSSAI to cancel the licence for Maggi. It was reported that Maggi was being recalled and then that it wasn’t. As if FSSAI would be so quick to action. Anyway, this piece…

    Ruskin Bond turned 81 today. You may not have put a finger to it, but the daydream image we have of writing in a tiny cottage on the hilltops probably came from Ruskin Bond and his indelible association with Mussoorie. Indeed, his books reek of the atmosphere of the hills- mysterious and beguiling; with the mist and rain, the free-spiritedness, the lush greenery-unhurried and lazy to catch up; they are symbolic of his writing style. Old at age but agile in the mind, any article or story on him will likely contain a quote or interaction with the man himself. And a trip to Mussoorie? You are…

Apple and the United States Department of Justice had, after all, been exchanging jabs about him. “I'd like to be heard, your Honor, if I can,” he told the judge, who said they’d need to “exhaust the arguments of the main combatants” first. Wanting to interject would be understandable, considering how long Bromwich and Apple had been putting up their dukes inside and outside of court in a bloody fight over cash and corporate power.

    Setting aside the absurdity of longtime Apple users arguing in favour of this kind of almost impenetrable complexity, John Gruber's recent piece on the behaviour of the button inside the Apple Watch's crown is telling. Here's a better way to think about it - and without thinking about it, the reason why I think most people aren't frustrated or confused by the crown button after a week or so. It's best to think of Apple Watch as having two modes: watch mode, and app mode. You do not need to understand this to use the watch. Most Apple Watch owners will never really think about this. But this…
  • AMD: Nvidia GameWorks "sabotaged" Witcher 3 performance

    20 May 2015 | 4:38 pm
    While AMD seems to have made up with Slightly Mad Studios, at least if this tweet from Taylor is anything to go by, the company is facing yet another supposedly GameWorks-related struggle with CD Projekt Red's freshly released RPG The Witcher 3. The game makes use of several GameWorks technologies, most notably HBAO+ and HairWorks. The latter, which adds tens of thousands of tessellated hair strands to characters, dramatically decreases frame rate performance on AMD graphics cards, sometimes by as much as 50 percent. I got bitten by this just the other day. I'm currently enjoying my time with…

The first response is usually an Anti-Virus, but with 300,000 virus and malware everyday it’s unrealistic to expect that they can catch them all.

    Rex Hammock
    22 May 2015 | 11:47 am
    Earlier this year, I noted a new design of Wired.com that supports “takeover” ads. These are not pop-over or pop-up ads that you can click an “x” to remove. These are ads that are actually a part of the background or are, in some graphical and often animated way, an actual element of the page. Today, I thought I saw Amazon come as close as I’ve seen it come to promoting a product using a takeover approach (that wasn’t a letter from Jeff Bezzos). However, upon looking at it more closely, I realized it was a standard size Amazon uses — a…

    In Nashville, a city that is in the midst of an unprecedented building boom, a prime piece of property has not participated in the boom. Instead, it became first, a giant hole and then, one of the most expensive lakes a person can imagine. However, Google Maps isn’t a person and it had no problem imagining it. Google Maps has spent the past several years codifying the creation of the giant lake on West End Avenue. A six year old post on a real estate blog tells the story up to that point. Since then, there has been another big deal announcement, some more digging, and a deal falling…

That’s because when you publish a new article, the old content, that was previously hiding in the archives, shows up in the list of related posts and thus gets fresh exposure to both human visitors and search engines. Matt Cutts, in 2010 when Google search results were a collection of 10 blue links, recommended using related posts and the advice is still relevant today in the age on Penguins and Pandas.

  • Witcher 3 Please Wait Xbox One Bug Fix

    Derek Strickland
    22 May 2015 | 9:48 pm
    Like just about every big AAA release on current-gen consoles, The Witcher 3 has its fair share of launch day woes–this time in the form of annoying glitches that refuse to load the game or even delete your progress. Today we’ll be taking a look at the pesky “please wait” glitch on the Xbox One and some possible solutions that have worked for me, so they might work for you as well. The Problem Everyone familiar with the glitch knows all too well what to expect: when firing up The Witcher 3 you’re stuck at the main menu with a permanently looping “please…

    Huawei (SHE:002502) is fashioning itself to be a major player in the growing internet of things (IoT) sector as the Asia market has proven to be a receptive market for the technology. At the 2015 Network Congress in Beijing, Huawei announced it’s latest product in its IoT lineup: a 10KB OS that will serve as the basic building blocks for future IoT devices. Powered by Linux, the OS, called LiteOS, has the necessary code to enable auto-discovery and auto-networking. Customers would add in the code they need for their device to get it off the ground, as Huawei said that it will be open…
  • Devs Respond To Witcher 3 Downgrade Controversy

    Derek Strickland
    20 May 2015 | 11:40 pm
    Despite being one of the best games in recent memory, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been marred in the same type of graphics controversies responsible for pulverizing past games like Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs. The final version of Witcher 3 looks markedly different than the remarkable preview footage that was unveiled at VGX 2013, and throughout the game’s development cycle, fans have noticed these disparities and voiced their concerns. Although the game is still amazing even with the changes, many gamers feel they’ve fallen prey to the game industry’s infamous “bait…

  • An Affordable Thunderbolt 2 Dock with 4K and Dual Display Support

    Terry White
    6 May 2015 | 9:11 pm
    For years now my MacBook Pro has been my primary computer. Now my only desktop computer is my Mac OS X Server. Having a MacBook Pro doesn’t mean that I don’t have a ton of peripherals that I need to connect. The last thing I want to do when I leave or return from a trip is connect a bunch of cables. That’s where a Thunderbolt 2 dock comes in. Although I’ve used a Belkin one for years now, people are always asking for a lower priced alternative. Elgato has created one the fits the bill nicely. For a hundred dollars less than the competition you still get 2 Thunderbolt 2…
  • Why You Should Enable Dual Redundancy on Your Drobo

    Terry White
    5 May 2015 | 9:11 pm
    Like you, my data is very important to me. I have several backups and offsite cloud backups too. In my home office I use a Drobo 5D connected to my Mac OS X Server as well as a second Drobo 5N to backup the Drobo 5D. The whole reason to have a Drobo is so that if one of your hard drives fail your data will be protected and you can just keep working. You’ll probably replace the failed drive with a larger one since larger drives come out every year. The one thing we don’t really think about is what happens if two drives fail at the same time? Normally this means you’re screwed…
  • A Behind The Scenes Look: LIVE broadcast of my Piedmont Park sunset shoot

    It’s always fun to get out and shoot on my free time. Now with the Periscope App it’s easier than ever to invite people to watch live. This past weekend I did a live broadcast from my sunset shoot at Piedmont Park in Atlanta Georgia. I had over 100 people watching my short broadcast. With Periscope the broadcasts can be uploaded for replay for a 24 hour period. After that they are pretty much history. Sure Periscope allows you to save the video to your camera roll, but that video doesn’t include any of the comments or interactions (hearts) you received during your broadcast.

    I love home automation products. My first X10 remote controlled lights date back to the early 1980’s. Long before smartphones and bluetooth wireless. I always thought it was cool to be able to remote control several lights, appliances, etc. all from one control pad or timer module. I haven’t looked that the advancements that closely over the years, but when the Elgato Avea came across my review desk I was excited. The Avea Dynamic Mood Light is a 7W bluetooth controlled LED lightbulb. Unlike other products on the market this one doesn’t require a network connection or any…

    29 Apr 2015 | 9:11 pm
    You can never have too much storage and fast external storage is even better. A few years back I bought the first Elgato External SSD and my only complaint with it was the fact that it only had a single Thunderbolt port. That pretty much killed the use that I thought I would have for it which was to boot from it during certain presentations. Since the MacBook Pros back then only had one Thunderbolt port I couldn’t connect the drive and an external display/projector at the same time. Fast forward to today and the NEW Elgato Thunderbolt Drive + and while we still get a single Thunderbolt…

  • Dianna Agron: Yahoo Calls Her ‘McQueen’ Performance ‘F**king Devastating’

    Dianna Agron, probably best known for her role as a teenaged Quinn Fabray on the hit musical TV series Glee, received a scathing review from Yahoo for her role in McQueen, at London’s St. James Theatre. The review, in fact, went beyond scathing. It called her performance, ‘f**king devastating.’ Unfortunately, it wasn’t just Yahoo giving Dianna Agron a less-than-stellar review. “But Glee star Dianna Agron is not good, I’m afraid. Her delivery is glib yet slow–I never believe the quick-fire rapport with McQueen, and when they get onto more profound or…
  • Anna Duggar Fully Supports Josh Duggar, Despite ’19 Kids and Counting’ Star’s History of Sexual Molestation

    Anna Duggar fully supports her husband, Josh Duggar, despite the fact that he sexually molested four of his sisters and one other female–all minors–when he was a teenager. She has known about the incidents since two years before marrying into the 19 Kids and Counting family. Josh and Anna Duggar were seemingly living their dream until word broke earlier this week about his devious past. Josh worked as a lobbyist for the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C., where he lived with Anna and their three children. They are expecting their fourth. Just days ago the family revealed…

    Michelle Duggar of 19 Kids and Counting fame has a long history of speaking out against LGBT people. She has referred to them before as child predators. Meanwhile, she had a child predator living within her very own family. What’s wrong with this story? Josh Duggar–the eldest of the 19 Kids and Counting brood–molested several young girls when he was a teen. Fox News reports that four of them were his own sisters. Just about a year ago, Michelle Duggar recorded a robocall saying if ‘equal protection laws were passed for LGBT people in Fayetteville, Arkansas, their…

    Jinger Duggar is the fourth in line of the 19 Kids and Counting daughters. This no doubt has some wondering if she was among the siblings Josh Duggar reportedly molested as a teenager. Fox News reports that Josh Duggar sexually molested four of his female siblings and had one non-relative female victim. Might Jinger Duggar, Jana Duggar, Jill Duggar Dillard, and Jessa Duggar Seewald have been among his victims? Jinger Duggar is especially close to sister Jessa, and reportedly had a really hard time when Jessa flew the coop last November, marrying Ben Seewald. Jessa Duggar Seewald and her…

    Apple has been using the Helvetica Neue font both for its desktops and mobile devices. Both OSX 10.10 and iOS 8 come with Helvetica Neue pre-installed as default fonts though that could well be about to change. According to a report in 9to5Mac, Apple is all but set to move away from the long term relationship with Helvetica and replace the font with San Francisco in iOS 9 and OSX 10.11. The San Francisco typeface has been used on the Apple Watch already and largely has been credited to have been cleaner and sleeker font on smaller displays as compared to Helvetica. It is due to this easy…

    A quick look at modern day video games, and it becomes evident how much impact technology has had on how we experience gaming today. Just about two decades ago, the 16-bit graphics of the Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis were the most popular consoles.

    Wondering How to Buy an SSD (Solid State Drive)? The traditional hard disk drive (HDD) has been common in consumer desktops since the time of the first personal computers in the 1980s. HDDs consist of a mechanical arm that seeks across a metal disk to find and store data. Unfortunately, mechanical parts mean that hard drives are often the first components to wear out in a computer, while the rate of data retrieval is limited by mechanical realities. In contrast, solid state drives (SSDs) have no moving parts and rapidly store data using electronic means. Technological advances have finally…

Pinhole glasses are modern technology miracles as they allow people with blurry vision to see clear objects without the need of prescription lenses and glasses. They are an alternative to corrective glasses and can be used to improve vision and sight. The design and shape of pinhole glasses is similar to normal frames, with one small difference, the pinhole glasses have tiny holes in the lenses. The pinholes are made of an opaque sheet that has tiny holes on it, and is attached to frames. They can be worn like normal glasses.

There are several programs that can be used to accomplish this goal, one of which is git. This document will discuss the way that we here at NuRelm use git for not only version control and collaboration, but also for site database backups.

    Microsoft updated its Hyperlapse beta app on Android to add more devices it can support. It now works on Motorola Moto X, Motorola Moto G (first and second generation), and the Samsung Galaxy S4, and Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4. The prerequisite bug fixes are also in this update. This Hyperlapse app is similar to the one Instagram released. It lets you create sped up, steady video of your many adventures. And since Instagram hasn’t released their version yet, the Microsoft one is the next best thing to use. Source: Droid Life

    22 May 2015 | 6:07 pm
    With Google I/O less than a week away, rumours have been going around that Google plans to unveil the latest iteration of its mobile operating system Android M at the developer’s conference. One of the reports claim that Google plans to integrate native fingerprint authentication into the OS. So, if you use an Android M device, it’ll have a built-in fingerprint reader. This will help out device manufacturers who want to make use of the technology for their upcoming devices even if they don’t have a history of making fingerprint readers. We just have to wait a bit to see if…

    YouTube is taking on Twitch with its latest feature—60 frames-per-second HD livestream support. The streaming video site now supports livestreams at 60fps for 720p and 1080p resolutions. It makes use of YouTubes HTML5 player, which lets viewers see previously recorded portions of the streams in 1.5x or 2x speed if they want to. YouTube will knock down the frame rate to 30fps if your device can’t support 60fps. These kinds of videos are already up on YouTube but you can’t really tell if the stream your watching is using this frame rate. PCWorld suggests games like…
  • Google rumoured to be building Internet of Things OS

    Nicole Batac
    22 May 2015 | 6:56 am
    Rumours are going around that Google plans to enter the Internet of Things space with an operating system of their own. Called “Brillo,” the OS will reportedly only need as little as 32MB or 64MB of RAM to function, which is a departure from the 512MB needed by Android. If there is any truth behind these rumours, this will help out OEMs who no longer need to design IoT communication schemes. This will also give Google a great position as backbone of the future smart homes. Next week’s I/O Developers Conference should clarify if there’s any truth to these reports.

    Internet is becoming more and more widely available especially in emerging countries and more and more people now make use of public Wi-Fi offerings, more so when they are on the move say hopping across countries, or for that matter everyday travel and so on. While it is a good thing to make use of it to save some cost it can also be a very dangerous proposition when venturing into a 3rd party Wi-Fi zone as you never know what would lurk into your work or who is tapping into all of the incoming and outgoing information!

    Google Chromecast is a HDMI streaming device and digital media player which is very popular. But there are other smart players in the market too who are trying to make a mark taking on Google by doing some innovative developments. One such company is MangoMan consumer electronics from India’s silicon city Bengaluru. Last year we saw the release of their first HDMI media streaming device in the form of Teewe (pronounced TV – simple ain’t it?) and they are following that up with a successor “Teewe 2” which was launched yesterday.

    While many companies like Xiaomi and Lenovo have taken the online-sales-only model, there are other companies  who have spun off a separate brand that will go that route. Huawei has done that with their Honor brand and ZTE has done that with its Nubia brand. This helps them cut on marketing and other costs and provide some wicked awesome specs loaded into a phone at rock bottom prices. India has become a key market for most of the smartphone makers and especially the ones that are coming from China! OnePlus, Xiaomi, Meizu et all have clearly indicated that.

We saw that Sony was one of the first to do it, then came Xiaomi to offer some decent ones at rock bottom prices and then the OnePlus, ASUS, Honor and so on. With so many offerings out there, it is such a daunting task to pick and choose the right one!

    by Jean-Louis Gassée Ending a work relationship needn’t be complicated or traumatic. It can be done in a sane and respectful way if a clean framework is set up at hiring time. In an August, 2012 Monday Note titled The HR-Less Performance Review I described a sane, humane way for an employer to conduct the dreaded Performance Review. The script is simple: Your performance meets or exceeds requirements. You get to keep your job. Your salary increase is x%.

After last week’s Monday Note, Three Slides Then Shut Up – The Art of The Pitch, I was subjected to a bit of email ribbing.

  • Circa: What went wrong

    Frédéric Filloux
    4 May 2015 | 12:23 am
    by Frederic Filloux Circa, the clever smartphone news app, failed to live up to its promises. The fiasco stems from the smartphone advertising market’s inherent weakness, from Circa’s inability to catch up with evolving reading habits, and from an insufficient editorial proposition.  In mid-2013, many were praising Circa. The app was kind of unique at the time (see this Monday Note about it); it was built on a clever news flow rearrangement, truncated for faster reading; quotes were pulled out, sources listed apart in a precise manner. Circa gave readers the ability to follow-up on a…

    by Jean-Louis Gassée This week, we look at pitches, at the stories entrepreneurs tell investors. The best pitches aren’t really pitches. Dumping one’s entire body of knowledge on easily bored investors won’t help. The best pitch is one that quickly moves from monologue to conversation. The First 70 Minutes of The Hour. When, in 2002, I was invited to join the ranks of venture investors by Barry Weinman, my Gentleman Capitalist mentor, I voiced a concern: I didn’t want to go blind looking at PowerPoint presentations for the rest of my life. Gentleman that he is, Barry didn’t — and…

    Andre Infante
    22 May 2015 | 2:00 pm
    A novel encryption bug has surfaced recently, which could pose a threat to online privacy. Dubbed “LogJam,” the bug occurs in the TSL (the Transport Security Layer), an encryption protocol used to authenticate servers and conceal the contents of secure web activity (like your bank login). The bug allows a man-in-the-middle attacker to force your browser, and the server it’s connected to, to use a weak form of encryption which is vulnerable to brute-force attacks. This is related to the ‘FREAK’ vulnerability discovered and patched earlier this year. These bugs…

    According to a new study, the total number of knee replacement surgeries performed in the United States shows a significant increase. The study published in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery (JBJS) (June 2014 edition) found that the total knee replacements (TKR) had tripled during 1993 – 2009, while hip replacement surgeries doubled during the same period.

    Meghann Kiernan
    13 May 2015 | 1:31 am
    Coding and billing vaccine administration in an outpatient setting is challenging because vaccine codes are based on several factors, with different codes for Medicare and private health plans. Medicare coverage on a routine basis is available only for a few vaccines. Moreover, sometimes a patient may require more than one vaccine during a visit, and selecting the correct serum code alone is not enough to ensure full reimbursement. Medical codes for vaccine administration depend on the route of administration, the number of components in the vaccine, and the patient’s age – specifying…

  • Where are the women in technology?

    Susan Trapp
    22 May 2015 | 4:22 am
    1E Sponsors Women’s Technology Award Why have a Technology Award for women? Because over the past 30+ years in the IT industry, there has been very little change in the proportion of women in IT departments, despite many more women studying STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) subjects, and becoming more familiar with technology from early age (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Women_in_computing). A bit of personal history: I started my career as a graduate trainee at Accenture (then Andersen Consulting LLP) in the early 1980’s – one of three women in an intake of 40. My…

I would like to start with a clear explanation of CPU. Right now, I imagine you are visualizing a box under your foot or under some nearby desktop’s foot with wires shooting upwards from its rear side: a CPU, or Central Processing Unit. I won’t judge anyone who has imagined such a thing, but in fact the CPU which forms the topic of this post is…

Well in this article I shall attempt to do just that, you can judge. So what’s it all about? What is this active and passive voice thing? Why should I care?

Compare a city like Mannheim, Germany: …to Algier’s traditional quarters, the Casbah: Where, do you think, it would be easier for you to find the house of a friend? Order is helpful, even important.

Those special releases are made specifically for Joomla developers to use to both test the changes in the upcoming release AND to check that their own code is still working as intended.

    The Open Networking User Group (ONUG) is a community of IT executives that are using their combined buying power to influence the networking industry. Members hail from companies such as Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase and Fidelity Investments. ONUG’s goal is to specify requirements and reference architectures for products that are open, more affordable and more agile than what vendors traditionally offer. Over its first two years of existence, ONUG has focused on software-defined WAN (SDWAN), network virtualization overlays and network service virtualization (also known as network…

    As an analyst who focuses on network management research, I am particularly intrigued by software-defined networking (SDN). As SDN architectures are deployed in data centers, local area networks and WANs, network management practices will have to evolve. For instance, SDN may make it easier for cloud administrators to provision network services and connectivity for a new application, but how do you ensure that your new programmable network remains compliant with configuration controls and policies? Is your performance management tool able to model and monitor an SDN controller? If you have…

  • Rewarding Impatience with User Self-Service

    There seems to be a direct correlation between how successful business professionals are and their level of impatience. While I am not familiar with any studies on this particular subject, it is simple logic that the most productive employees are those who most frequently demand rapid response to service requests. From my past experience managing and providing IT administrative support, I can attest that these individuals are usually the most irritating—constantly requesting access to new applications, data, and other business resources with expectations of an immediate response.

    In a perfect world, all business processes would be automated and all work tasks would be accomplished with the click of a button. This idyllic work experience seems to be the realization of Plato’s utopia…or, if you prefer, the world of the Jetsons. Regrettably, however, we clearly do not live in a perfect world. Put simply, while any repeatable process can be automated, not every process is repeatable, so automation is not a practical solution in all cases. This is particularly a problem for enterprises since business productivity is almost entirely dependent on the rapid and accurate…

    I think we all agree that our work is all about achieving high performance, scalable and most importantly simple solutions to complex problems. Over the years spent on developing and designing software solutions I have noticed the tendency to overcomplicate things by developers, DB architects and UI designers. After a certain time the reasons for that have eventually become clear to me. What I have observed is the fact that everyone focuses on their layer. They don’t pay enough attention to other parts of the system and don’t know how they could help their colleagues working on other…

  • The Most Common Innovation Mistake to Avoid

    R Bielski
    5 May 2015 | 7:45 am
    One of my favorite questions to ask clients is, “What does the term ‘innovation’ mean to your organization?” Over the years I’ve gotten used to the quizzical looks I get in response, but when it becomes clear it’s not a rhetorical question, it has led to very valuable discussions. My general observation is that most organizations don’t really know what innovation means to them, leading to confusion and misalignment of resources and goals, which severely limits the chances of successfully innovating. Because you can’t measure what you can’t define, failure to align on an…

    Ad-hoc research is often the most used method by which we understand our markets and new innovations. Most of us work on evolving markets that often have very specific questions which we feel we need to address and ask of consumers. For most of us these questions change nearly every time we look at a new innovation. Even in the case of incremental adjustments we often come up with new aspects we hadn’t thought of before. This leads to questions that we just have to ask this time even though we have nothing to compare the answers to, and which we may not ask next time. We fear leaving a…

The figure comes from an advocacy site run by a European reputation management company. Google has received more than a quarter of a million RTBF requests, and by the company’s count over two thirds of them have been rejected.

A reverse image search is what you do when you already have the image in hand, but want to find out more about it. Generally you upload the image to the search engine, or type in the URL of the image you have in mind. Then the search engine checks its database and shows you everywhere on the web that your image is posted. Not too shabby. Reverse image searches are nothing new, but they’ve been improving a…

She must have been arranging wall clusters in her sleep again. She puts the antlers back where they belong—on the head of the live deer that hangs out by her window. Then…

The bad news is that the first alien life forms humankind will likely discover will be too far away to ever visit. But the great news is that we could detect these exotic beings extremely soon: "I think we're probably going to be able to detect life on another planet in the next decade or so," Christopher Impey, who is an astronomer at the University of Arizona and author of over a…

Not all of them will turn out to be false, but by examining the facts instead of just shouting angrily about “the other people,” maybe we can reach an understanding…

  • 20 Year Old Bug Breaks Internet Encryption: How To Tell if Your Browser is Affected

    Andre Infante
    22 May 2015 | 2:00 pm
    A novel encryption bug has surfaced recently, which could pose a threat to online privacy. Dubbed “LogJam,” the bug occurs in the TSL (the Transport Security Layer), an encryption protocol used to authenticate servers and conceal the contents of secure web activity (like your bank login). The bug allows a man-in-the-middle attacker to force your browser, and the server it’s connected to, to use a weak form of encryption which is vulnerable to brute-force attacks. This is related to the ‘FREAK’ vulnerability discovered and patched earlier this year. These bugs…

    tech
    16 May 2015 | 5:14 pm
    By now, you’ve doubtless heard the term “cord cutting”. It’s an imposing name for a simple process: dumping your cable or satellite provider in favor of internet-delivered content. Cord cutters have only recently begun to truly grow in number, and many of us are left to wonder: what exactly should we make of this trend? Depending on who you listen to, cord cutting is either the way of the future and the death knell of traditional TV models, or a passing blip in the radar that industry giants can comfortably ignore. The truth, of course, is a mix of the two. New means of…

Google have done a fantastic job of refining and honing its algorithm. They make regular changes to ensure they serve the best and most relevant content to their users. However, these constant changes and updates make it a nightmare for marketers and websites. Every time Google updates its algorithm, it changes the world of SEO. Essentially, everything you were told to do last year no longer works! Worse still, continuing to follow outdated…

Now, however, a team of researchers has announced the results of an experiment in which those limitations were greatly reduced...

    Journalists are often expected to engage with social media. Esther Vargas/Flickr, CC BY-SAThe one defining ideal of journalism is the belief that journalists should “speak the truth” even when the truth may be contested, unpopular or damaging. The ideal of freedom of expression is the bedrock of journalism, hard won since “freedom of the press” meant being able to own and operate a printing press, free of government control and without a licence. For nearly 500 years journalists have maintained a significant degree of autonomy despite the constant tension with the editorial,…

  • Firefox for iOS Beta coming to iPhone and iPad very soon -- source code available now!

    Brian Fagioli
    22 May 2015 | 6:17 pm
    I have a love/hate relationship with iOS. My iPad Air is a satisfying tablet; I enjoy using it while hanging out on the toilet, but I feel guilty using it. Why? I have some specific computing beliefs that Apple's operating system is at odds with. Namely, I do not like that users cannot change the default web browser. Even worse, I find it horrible that alternative browser engines cannot be used. While I am sure Apple has its reasons, it is an undeniably bad practice which harms users by limiting choice. Firefox is not found on iOS for this reason. Mozilla initially refused to cave to Apple…

    When Microsoft released the latest Windows 10 build earlier in the week, there was one big known issue which will have put some people off updating. Windows Insiders on systems with AMD GPUs were warned that the new build could lead to stability issues, and problems with Windows Edge (or Spartan as it’s still branded in the current build). Microsoft did say, however, that AMD was working on new drivers, and the good news is the problem appears to have been fixed. Microsoft’s Gabe Aul has confirmed via Twitter that AMD has "released some new drivers which should work great with build…
  • How to back up all your Gmail emails

    Gmail might be the most popular email service in the world, but even the biggest players fall sometimes, and once that happens, the little guys will be there to cheer. Server outages and crashes have happened before, and even though Gmail is generally seen as a solid, well-built and stable product, it too can crash, leaving you without all those precious emails you’ve been saving. If you’re keeping some really important stuff on your Gmail account (and I’m guessing a lot of you are, as 425 million of you are using the service), you might want to consider backing that mail up every once…
  • Razer Firefly is the coolest mouse pad ever

    Brian Fagioli
    22 May 2015 | 10:07 am
    Depending on your age, you may or may not remember when mice had rubber balls to track movement. It was horrible, as they would often get clogged and required cleaning. They also benefited from a mouse pad, as the ball would work better on it than on a desk surface. Nowadays, we have optical and laser mice, which track much better on most desk surfaces. In other words, for the most part, no mouse pad is needed. Gamers, however, still invest in mouse pads (aka mouse mats) as a way to get an edge in competitions. Today, Razer announces the Firefly, which, in my opinion, is the coolest mouse…

    Harmony remotes, purchased by Logitech, have long been a standard for universal control of your home theater. However, the world is moving on and headed towards fully connected homes -- dwellings where we can control everything with the touch of a button, automate it and let it serve us. The Internet of Things can be scary, as my colleague Derrick Wlodarz pointed out, but it can also be fascinating in that shiny new gadget sort of way. Slowly but surely you can do all of this, not only from your phone or tablet, but from that remote control sitting on the coffee table in front of you. Harmony…

Julien Laurat at the Université Pierre et Marie Curie explains that using fibres would make the memories more compatible with existing optical-information technology.

    We talked about logos and their importance, and one of our guest bloggers provided some useful data, but lets start from the beginning and go through a little logo 101.The first thing I can say I have heard from a lot of people is that they are not creative enough to make a logo. The second is they cannot afford to pay someone to make a logo for them.Well let's get past these ideas, because as much as having a professionally made logo is nice, if you are just getting started you can definitely create your own with a little insight and a little effort.

    I was at EMCWorld2015 (see my posts on the day 1 news and day 2&3 news) and IBMEdge2015 this past month and there was a lot of news on software defined storage. And it turns out I was at an HP Storage Deep Dive the previous month and they also spoke on the topic. One key aspect of software defined storage is how customers can consume the product. I’m not talking about licensing but rather about product trial-ability. One approach championed by HP, EMC, IBM and others is to offer their software defined storage in a new way.

    On a recent long drive to Upstate New York, my wife asked me for the books that impacted my life. I found it surprising how easily I could name each book, and was even able to recall the look and feel of my personal copy (some of which sadly did not survive my wife's many Stalinistic book purges). Here is my list: Four Steps to the Epiphany I’d spent years thinking great products came from great ideas.

As a publicity stunt, it probably worked wonders for Zenefits. Yes, I know they are valued at over a billion dollars. But there is a good reason no one really knows about them: the mere mention of the words “benefits broker” and “automating benefits on-boarding” has a narcoleptic effect on most human beings.

    Just like we have founders of a business, we also have founding customers. These are customers who took a chance on you at the earliest stages when there was very little to take a chance on. While they may have paid for your product in those early days, they more than likely were buying into your vision. Their unique expertise and experience made it so they could see what many others could not: potential. While on my current business trip, I had a chance to spend time with one of my founding customers. Today they are a fast growing technology company nearing an IPO; two and a half years ago…

As an avid reader of tech non-fiction, I can’t get enough startup stories behind the story. It’s great to get away from the sterile founding stories that go from idea to success with no interruption. The real stories are always messier, a lot less certain of themselves, and much more interesting. Tony’s book was a little off the beaten path for me since I was neither a customer of Zappos nor someone who followed his career. The…

Yet the UX has the power to make or break a brand’s app. Brands have to consider design, content, performance, and overall usability when building apps to ensure users have the best possible experience. However, it seems like the UX gets compromised in the process. Add in a marketing team that confuses buyer personas with behavioral personas, and you’re left with a negotiated UX. This negotiated UX is often a…

    23 May 2015 | 4:11 am

    I allow for a certain amount of magic in my life. While I know a fair amount about the inside of computers, there are other machines I use every day that I understand literally nothing about. How does a blender turn fruit into fruit-glue? How does my shower faucet go from freezing cold to burning hot with nothing in between? And most importantly, how do cars work? Actually, to be honest: I thought I knew more about how cars worked. I’ve changed a (real-life) tire before. I’ve changed oil. I

    Despite a stated mission of saving lives and providing care, hospitals and healthcare facilities can be very dangerous places. It’s estimated that more than 400,000 people are killed each year due to preventable medical errors, which include preventable Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs). Many of these errors are technology-related, which both clinicians as well as patients need to be aware of. According to the non-profit ECRI Institute, health technology hazards can come in many forms. “Th

    20 May 2015 | 7:16 am
    There’s no set Environment Agency-criteria for determining what makes a city green, but some of the essential factors for ranking the eco-friendliness of a city include the amount of green space, air quality, access to organic products, the percentage of LEED-certified buildings, and any other relevant characteristics that help reduce our carbon footprint. Here’s five cities that are not only green but have that “cool factor”. They’re like the Tesla Motors of cities.

  • Verizon to buy AOL for $4.4 billion

    Tim
    12 May 2015 | 9:12 am
    US telecommunications giant Verizon has snapped up AOL for $4.4bn (£2.8bn), in a deal worth $50 per share at an $8 premium. AOL generates revenues from advertising space on its own websites, such as the Huffington Post, Engadget, and TechCrunch, selling ad space for other websites, and from its legacy dial-up internet business. Verizon is likely looking to create a full service media and communications company, following the example of UK companies such as Sky and BT, where users get their phonelines, internet, and television all through the same provider. By bundling all the services and…

    23 Apr 2015 | 8:28 am
    Over the last ten years YouTube has become increasingly ingrained in our lives, creating its own celebrities that have following bigger than most popstars, and defining online video. When Google bought YouTube for $.165 billion in 2006, many thought that the search giant had paid over the odd for the service that had not turned a profit. However, then came the iPhone and the mobile revolution, where suddenly everyone had a camera in their pocket at all times, ready to shoot videos of their friends, activities, and anything that happens around them. Bandwidth improved just as the quality of…

    There’s a lot of silliness out there – it must be the weather – that has caught my attention recently. The one that really jumped out was that the people who control Internet domain names, ICANN, stated that they need the US government to decide what to do with the company that owns the rights to the .sucks domain. “It’s not our problem,” ICANN says. Todd L’Herrou sent me this photo of one of his colleagues (not really, it’s the son of one of his colleagues) wearing the fabulous new child’s t-shirt from Experts Exchange. Also new is the…

Perhaps he should have picked a different game and maybe used a different search engine.

One of the reasons I don’t use Gmail all that much is because there are a gazillion people who have sent me email and I have no idea who they are or why they wrote to me five years ago.

    Video games have gotten a bad rap for years now. They create killers, many critics like to claim. They glorify criminal behavior, some politicians often shout. But often left out of the video game discussion is how video games can actually be helpful to a child's intellectual development. While it may sound a bit outlandish at first, video games can often help kids hone their problem solving skills, sometimes without them even realizing it. What's more, kids who really love video games often start trying their hand at making their own, a sentiment recently articulated by none other than…

    Hilton Lipschitz
    8 Mar 2015 | 11:14 am
    I’m not a keyboard snob. But I love using my current keyboards now. Background: I was very happy with the Apple “chicklet” style keyboards and even wrote about it in Not the Clicky Keyboard. There I declared that clicky keyboards were not for me. I was wrong. But I did not know it at the time. A while back, my boss went on a buying bender and purchased a whole bunch of different keyboards, including the DAS and some Microsoft ones. I tried them out too. Neither of us liked any of them, so he returned them all. As a joke, I ordered the CODE keyboard to show that I could buy…
  • One-Key Format Presets in Scrivener

    Hilton Lipschitz
    7 Mar 2015 | 2:37 pm
    I am writing a lot of business documents in Scrivener, and even though it’s the wrong way to do it, I use Scrivener’s format presets (think paragraph styles) to quickly format headings, bulleted lists and paragraphs in each sub-document. This way I minimize post-processing (and the business format is intentionally boring so I do not need any fancy layouts). But it’s a hassle to have to take my hands off the keyboard to click through the Format / Apply Formatting / Apply Preset menu tree or hit the tiny format preset dropdown ¶a to set the current paragraph style. What I…

    A long long time ago in a galaxy far far away, I wrote a script to import Asana tasks into Omnifocus. If you ran it again, it would update the tasks in OmniFocus. See Merge Asana Projects Into OmniFocus. I recently updated the script to work a smidge better with Asana and Omnifocus 2. The main changes are: Date formats can be changed (for those of us not in the USA) The Non-Project tasks now load Setup First, follow the instructions from the original post to set up Omnifocus and get your API keys.

  • Seeing the Bigger Picture

    Hilton Lipschitz
    31 Jan 2015 | 7:23 am
    It is quite astounding to me that an astonishing amount of work is done and code written without any knowledge, view or understanding of the bigger picture. And yet no-one seems to have taken the time to consider just how remarkably ridiculous this common situation is. How can people be expected to perform at their best and create the best products when they have no clue as to what the big picture or goal is? And yet that seems to be the norm. I started thinking more about this topic yesterday when discussing the work our Quantitative Analysts were doing with them. They were keenly focussed…

  • Senate votes down USA Freedom Act, putting bulk surveillance powers in jeopardy

    Adi Robertson
    22 May 2015 | 10:15 pm
    In a midnight session, the Senate has voted down the USA Freedom Act, putting one of the legal bedrocks of the NSA's bulk surveillance programs into jeopardy. The Patriot Act is set to expire at the end of the month, and the USA Freedom Act would have extended large portions of the act in modified form. Tonight's failure to arrive at a vote makes it likely that many of those powers will automatically expire, although Senate Majority Leader McConnell (R-KY) scheduled a last-minute session on May 31st for one last shot at passing the bill. In particular, the USA Freedom Act would have…
  • Florida says former Uber driver is an employee, threatening its business model

    Josh Lowensohn
    22 May 2015 | 5:27 pm
    Uber promises big things for its drivers, from plenty of work to flexible hours, and even discounts on vehicles that can be used when drivers aren't on the clock. However one thing that is not promised when someone becomes an Uber driver is the legal consideration of being called an "employee" versus an "independent contractor." Anyone who's worked in a company with both roles knows the difference: the former comes with numerous benefits, including expanded legal protections and maybe even a dental plan. The latter does not. And if you're a professional driver, whatever camp you fall into…
  • BMW shows off its newest concept car: the 3.0 CSL Hommage

    Sean O'Kane
    22 May 2015 | 2:50 pm
    Every now and then, BMW releases a concept car that is the design team's way of honoring its classic models. Last year it was the M1 Hommage (which the BMW i8 essentially pulled its design language from). In 2011 it was the crazy open-top roadster 328. BMW did it again today; the automaker introduced a reimagining of its classic 1970s coupé with the all-new 3.0 CSL Hommage concept car. Everything about it — from the big rear spoiler, to the molded body kit look, to the "Golf Yellow" coloring — is sure to ruffle traditionalists, but that's sort of the whole point of concept cars in the…

In his view, regular school wasn't educating his kids the way he thought it should. "They weren't doing the things I thought should be done," Musk said during the interview. "I thought, well, let's see what we can do. Maybe creating a school would be better." Musk hired one of the teachers from the boys' school to help found Ad…

Mad Max met The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, MRAs threw a fit, and we even made a parody of our own by placing the oily hunks of Magic Mike: XXL alongside the dystopian future of Fury Road in Mad Mike: XXL. It's time to add one more to that list. Above you see Mario Kart: Fury Road, a mash-up between the George Miller movie and everyone's favorite polygonal go-kart racing game.

    James

    (c)iStock.com/Rassco It’s the age old problem; employees want applications to improve their productivity, but IT, concerned with keeping the lights on, is unable to acquiesce to their requests. A new report from Smith’s Point Analytics argues the benefits of codeless mobile app platforms. The report, sponsored by Globo, Altova and Umajin, assesses three ways in which organisations can benefit from codeless platforms; templates in a visual editor, componentised drag and drop editors as a plug-in, and drag and drop WYSIWYG visual editors. With the latter, while there is more…

Some in the business and tech media have gone so far as to declare that the title might soon vanish from the business lexicon. The arguments, both pro and con, assume that the CIO role must fundamentally change. This is true. There is disruption in end-user requirements, technology platforms, selection process, IT governance, and so on.  These changes…

It’s long been the same old story; employees’ actions on mobile devices are a threat to their employers. Previously, it was assumed that they weren’t aware of the risks. Increasingly however, employees are aware of cyber threats – yet many carry on regardless. The findings of a new survey, from Blue Coat in conjunction with Vanson Bourne, confirm this further.
