  • The Wearables Market Is Exploding, And Apple Is Stealing The Show

    David Nield
    27 Aug 2015 | 11:11 am
    A new report published by IDC paints an intriguing picture of the wearables market as it looks in the middle of 2015. The market grew 223% over the course of the previous year, and Apple—new to the sector and with only one wearable to its name—was bested only by Fitbit, in terms of devices sold during the last three months.That puts reports of rather underwhelming Apple Watch sales into perspective. (Apple hasn't released official figures of its own, of course.) While the smartwatch has yet to make an iPhone-like splash so far, with nearly 20% of the market, but it's already…

    Because automatic license plate readers just aren't efficient enough -- what with their ability to capture hundreds, if not thousands, of plate scans per hour -- San Jose's city government is looking to deputize other businesses and their vehicles in its quest to achieve 100% coverage of the city. Mayor Sam Liccardo and Councilmen Johnny Khamis and Raul Peralez proposed that the city consider strapping license plate readers to the front of garbage trucks, allowing them to record the plates of every car along their routes.

Forced to find other ways to remove allegedly defamatory content, plaintiffs have tried everything from questionable copyright lawsuits to extortion allegations. Not much of it has stuck. Ripoff Report not only plays Section 230 hardball, but it often brings lawsuits against those who have attempted to remove third-party content through dubious legal means.

    Mike Masnick
    27 Aug 2015 | 11:52 am
    Last fall, we wrote about how the FBI had set up a fake AP news story in order to implant malware during an investigation. This came out deep in a document that had been released via a FOIA request by EFF, and first noticed by Chris Soghoian of the ACLU. The documents showed the FBI discussing how to install some malware, called a CIPAV (for Computer and Internet Protocol Address Verifier) by creating a fake news story: It later came out that the way the FBI used this was an undercover agent pretended to be an AP reporter and sent the suspect -- a 15 year old high school kid... -- a "draft"…

  • Bulldog Ultra 2015 Race Report

    23 Aug 2015 | 8:05 pm
    After my flameout at Leona Divide and my partial redemption at the XTERRA Malibu Creek 22k I got up the courage to try a long shot – the Bulldog 50k trail race in Agoura Hills. I say it was a “long shot” because the race has a four hour cutoff after the first 25k-ish loop then cutoffs at each following aid station. Last year I ran the Bulldog 25k just over four hours so I’d have to not only improve my time but still have enough gas into tank to do a second loop on a very challenging course. Things were also busy at work and at home so I had to be super strategic with…

     According to a new report out this morning from IDC, Apple is now the number two wearable maker, thanks to its Apple Watch, coming in just behind market leader Fitbit during the second quarter of 2015.

    It is no secret that Adobe’s Flash is no longer the web darling that it once used to be. In fact the recent discovery of Flash zero-day vulnerabilities has led to browsers such as Firefox blocking all Flash content, and seeing major websites such as Twitch making the jump to HTML5, and come 1st of September, Google will be attempting to phase Flash out as well.The company has recently announced that moving forward, their Chrome browser will automatically freeze Flash files that are not important. This means that if you wish to see said files, you will have to click on them to manually…

    Apart from Google Cardboard and the Samsung Gear VR, there aren’t that many commercially available virtual reality headsets out there in the market yet. The Oculus Rift is expected to ship in 2016 and if you were hoping that the HTC Vive would be released before then, you might be disappointed.According to HTC who announced their presence at the PAX Prime expo, it seems that if you’re looking to get your hands on the HTC Vive this year, you probably can’t and 2016 would be a better bet. This isn’t to say that there won’t be any HTC Vive devices this year, it’s just that it will be…

    If you were to head on over to the Apple Store, you’ll find that you can still purchase the iPhone 5c from 2013. However according to a report from 9to5Mac, they claim that once the next-gen iPhones are launched, Apple is expected to discontinue the iPhone 5c. However in terms of other “older” devices, they’ll still be kept around.This includes the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, and interestingly enough the iPhone 5s. The report goes on to add that Apple will not be debuting a 4-inch iPhone 6c at their September 9th event. This is a bit confusing at the moment as there have been claims from…

    Wearables such as fitness trackers have been around for the past couple of years, with Apple only officially launching their own wearable, the Apple Watch, earlier this year. However it seems that Apple’s brand and reputation is enough to give it a huge advantage because according to the IDC, Apple is now the second-largest wearable maker.This puts them behind the likes of Fitbit who is still the largest wearable maker, and it also seemingly displaces Xiaomi who a couple of months ago, was considered to be the second-largest wearable maker.

    The latest version of OS X includes a new bug that is being exploited by hackers. The bug enables hackers to install malware on a Mac, even without a password. The cause for this bug is due to a new feature in OS X that logs errors, which was recently discovered to be highly exploitable by hackers. With the error log vulnerability, hackers are able to create files with root privileges anywhere on OS X. Anti-malware firm Malwarebytes elaborated on the malicious installer’s threat: “The sudoers file is a hidden Unix file that determines, among other things, who is allowed to get root…

    Lowepro DryZone BP40L Waterproof camera bag Cameras and water don’t mix but a waterproof camera bag makes it possible to protect cameras on rivers, lakes, or the ocean. On a recent rafting trip of the Middle Fork of the Salmon River in Idaho, I was thankful that I had the Lowepro BP 40L backpack to keep my camera equipment dry along the 90-plus miles of whitewater splashing into the boat on the 6-day ROW adventures expedition. Despite class IV and V rapids, the Lowepro backpack never let a single drop of water come in contact with my equipment. The BP 40L is similar to a dry day bag used on…

There's new evidence that those concerns are justified.

    Parents are leaving it too late to tackle the issue of online safety with their children which could be putting them at risk of danger. That’s the main finding of a new YouGov survey commissioned by mobile phone provider O2 and the NSPCC. YouGov, which interviewed more than 2000 parents and children aged between the ages of eight and 13, found that although 91 per cent of eight year olds use the internet, most parents don’t actually talk to them about online safety until they are at least nine – a delay that could be leaving children at risk from crimes such as cyber…

  • Graphene and Tantalum enables a new kind of high-density efficient memory

    11 Aug 2015 | 4:42 am
    Scientists at Rice University have created a solid-state memory technology based on graphene and tantalum oxide (a common insulator in electronics) that allows for high-density storage with a minimum occurrence of computer errors.The new devices require only two electrodes per circuit, making them simpler than present-day flash memories that use three. The new design is also said to require 100 times less energy than present devices. It is a new way to make nonvolatile computer memories - memories that hold their data even when the power is off, unlike volatile random-access computer memories…

  • How do I hide my friends on Facebook?

    Owen Cutajar
    23 Aug 2015 | 3:19 pm
    I really don’t want my friends to see my other friends on Facebook. Is there a way I can hide them? Facebook gives you the ability to share all kinds of information with your business colleagues, such as important updates, employment history and even your friends. Left unchecked, your profile page can be easily viewed by just about anyone with an Internet connection or a mobile phone. While this can be beneficial when trying to increase your small business’s Web presence using your Facebook account, it can also be detrimental at times, like when you’re looking for a new job.
  • How do I resize a batch of images on my Mac?

    I have a number of photos that I’d like to resize so they’re a bit smaller before I upload to my website. Do I need a Photoshop on my Mac to do this or is there an easier way? You can easily batch resize groups of images within Mac OS X by using the included Preview app, that is, taking a group of pictures set at one or various resolutions, and collectively resize them all together in a group to a new resolution, outputting either as the same file or as a new file saved at the newly desired resolution. Long ago you had to buy expensive third party software for this purpose, but no…

    I have an old Mac I’d like to install Mavericks on but I seem to have lost the admin password. How can I do this? Believe it or not, you don’t really need to be an admin to upgrade your Mac OS. However, you do need to boot right into the installer rather than try and launch it from your desktop. You might need a machine you DO have admin access to to create the bootable media, but that’s really all you need. Here’s what you need to do: Before being able to create a bootable OS X installer, you’ll need to do the following first: Use the Mac App Store to download…

    I was wondering if it’s possible to set up webcam to monitor my house while I’m out. What’s the best way to do this? There are a couple of options on how to do this. My very first setup, many moons ago, consisted of a laptop with a couple of USB webcams connected to it. I was using software to upload an image to an FTP server every 30 seconds. It did the job, but was a pretty flimsy setup. Today I would recommend an out-of-the-box solution called Watchbot. I have one of these little babies set up at home, and it was a doddle to set up.

    I keep seeing the word Bitcoin come up in the media and on website. What is this Bitcoin thing all about? Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer digital currency that functions without the intermediation of a central authority. It has been called a cryptocurrency because it is decentralized and uses cryptography to control transactions and prevent double-spending, a problem for digital currencies. Once validated, every individual transaction is permanently recorded in a public ledger known as the blockchain. Payment processing is done by a network of private computers often specially tailored to this…

    I’ve witnessed the adversarial relationships that can grow between startup founders and the media that cover them because part of my job is to sit in between the two so that they both get some of what they want. Seeing the conflicting interests are equally stressful and fascinating. Startup founders and their teams can make the fatal mistake of acting as though the role of press is to market what the company sells. And the journalists who cover the technology field are in the unenviable position of having to develop sources without misleading those sources into thinking that uninteresting…

    It’s a simple, but poignant statement from Kollecto‘s founder Tara Reed: “You don’t have to be rich to collect art.” She’s carried that philosophy with her since starting Kollecto up in Detroit as a way for people to buy art for their homes. It all started when she personally wanted to buy something for her home but found the whole process overwhelming and a bit intimidating. Reed learned she wasn’t alone though. As she says, at least 70 percent of the population has never bought a single piece of art before, and 20 percent think that buying art is more…

    Tim Cannon
    27 Aug 2015 | 3:00 pm
    While equality in the workplace is slowly improving for women in general, the percentage of women in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) careers — particularly tech and engineering — is actually declining. In 2013, only 23 percent of U.S. computing jobs were held by women, down significantly from 35 percent in 1990, according to a 2015 report from the American Association of University Women The problem is twofold — less women are entering the field and many women are leaving it in the middle of their careers.

  • Bootstrap 3 quick fix for older Firefox versions
    29 Jun 2014 | 12:39 pm
    I recently worked on a site and used Bootstrap v3 as the framework for my grid system. As I got far into the project, the requirement for Firefox versions crept downward to version 27. My carefully constructed columns started to crumble in this version of Firefox. After a little research, it turned out that the CSS box-sizing rule for Bootstrap had dropped the ‘-moz’ prefixes. Here’s what Bootstrap had in it: * { box-sizing: border-box; } *:before, *:after { box-sizing: border-box; } To add support for the older Firefox builds, I left the official Bootstrap file alone but…

    I really enjoy Beats Music but since they have a 3 device limit, I am logged out of the app on my computer regularly. I also have Beats set up in a Fluid stand-alone app on my machine. The reason I did this is because it keeps my music playing even if I happen to restart my web browser. I can also put the Beats app I created in my doc for easy access. Unfortunately this means the app doesn’t integrate into my password storage app. This means I would have to log into it in a separate window, copy my password and paste it into the Fluid Beats app to start music.

    So I’m sitting there… having moved our SIP Gateway and VoIP Phone system behind the Firewall and then OMG ITS NOT WORKING! I mean, it is, and by it is, I mean, no. It isn’t working. :)   Lo and behold technically OMG THE SOLUTION IS DISABLE SIP!  Well, that sounds pretty ridiculous… But I guess it turns out that the system has a native SIP handler and knows better than we do! Well, you’re wrong. You don’t know better than we do, unless ‘knowing better’ means breaking my SIP traffic! That said, there are a few other blogs where I found answers which helped lead…

    27 Aug 2015 | 5:02 pm
    College can be rough for some people, but it's a whole other world for science majors. Pipetting, taring a scale, and living your life in the library for weeks on end are all memories anyone who studied science could never forget. As a science major myself, I'll always remember the fresh madness of creating an endless supply of flashcards and study guides off my biology textbook. Whether you studied a little bit of science or completely devoted your life to it, here's what life in the sciences is all about.

    27 Aug 2015 | 3:19 pm
    Facebook is the perfect dumping ground for all types of feelings. There will always be one person who posts a cryptic breakup song and another whose status is about how lovely their vacation was. While we can't defriend everyone who does this, we can definitely laugh about it - like in this new video by comedian Jason Horton. It hilariously shows what saying Facebook statuses out loud sounds like and how irrelevant many of them are. Here's hoping that someday we all learn to curb our Facebook oversharing.

  • Latest technology: Ford Mustang gets new passenger airbag design

    15 Aug 2015 | 9:55 am
    Ford’s Mustang muscle car is debuting a new passenger air bag which cuts down on weight and increases interior space. Unlike a conventional front passenger airbag, which is integrated into a cars instrument panel, Ford’s new idea revolves around incorporating a knee airbag into the lining of the passenger glovebox. As well as eliminating intrusive space on the instrument panel, the new air bag is 65 per cent lighter than a conventional airbag and measures just 46cm in length and 28cm in width. Although it is more lightweight and saves space, Ford claims that it offers comparable…

At £250 a pop Hövding is an airbag for cyclists developed by a Swedish company and has just launched here in the UK – Bristol.

    The Tech Report gang has posted a review of the Cooler Master MasterCase 5 today. If you are case shopping, this review should be of interest.

The FreeForm system is more flexible than competing modular setups from Fractal Design, for example, especially for 3.5" storage. I found the family of add-on parts that builders can buy for their MasterCases to be well-built and well-integrated with the rest of the case. Comments

Ripoff Report not only plays Section 230 hardball, but it often brings lawsuits against those who have attempted to remove third-party content through dubious legal means. In this case, covered by Eric Goldman, Xcentric (Ripoff Report's host/parent company) is seeking a…

  • AP Sues FBI Over Impersonating An AP Reporter With A Fake AP Story

    Mike Masnick
    27 Aug 2015 | 11:52 am
    Last fall, we wrote about how the FBI had set up a fake AP news story in order to implant malware during an investigation. This came out deep in a document that had been released via a FOIA request by EFF, and first noticed by Chris Soghoian of the ACLU. The documents showed the FBI discussing how to install some malware, called a CIPAV (for Computer and Internet Protocol Address Verifier) by creating a fake news story: It later came out that the way the FBI used this was an undercover agent pretended to be an AP reporter and sent the suspect -- a 15 year old high school kid... -- a "draft"…

    Devising an enterprise-wide privilege access scheme for Windows systems can be complex. For example, each Window system object has its own access control list and the myriad of OS level rights and integrity levels which can vary by Windows version. For Windows environments it is critical that organizations can delegate administration and establish granular privileges quickly and efficiently. By doing so, IT can restrict administrators so that they can access the servers and resources required to perform their job, and only during the approved times to perform specific tasks.This white paper…

    27 Aug 2015 | 4:18 pm
    This hit the news yesterday. Microsoft released Windows 10 four weeks ago today, and now the company is providing a fresh update on its upgrade figures. 14 million machines had been upgraded to Windows 10 within 24 hours of the operating system release last month, and that figure has now risen to more than 75 million in just four weeks. As somebody who uses Windows every day, and who upgraded to Windows 10 a few weeks before it was released, let me make a statement about all the positive Windows 10 reviews that not everyone is going to like. There are only two reasons Windows 10 is getting…
  • Google to iOS devs: disable HTTPS so we can deliver insecure ads

    27 Aug 2015 | 10:28 am
    While Google remains committed to industry-wide adoption of HTTPS, there isn't always full compliance on third party ad networks and custom creative code served via our systems. To ensure ads continue to serve on iOS9 devices for developers transitioning to HTTPS, the recommended short term fix is to add an exception that allows HTTP requests to succeed and non-secure content to load successfully. Confirmed: Google wants me to switch to iOS. Disgusting.

  • Samsung on Galaxy Note 5's broken stylus slot: read the manual

    26 Aug 2015 | 11:04 am
    This year's Galaxy Note 5 is an outstanding device - combining power with grace, and utility with handsome looks - but it also has a pretty major design flaw. The phone's stylus can be inserted into its silo in both orientations, which is a change from previous S Pen designs, and one of those orientations can result in permanent damage to the Note's functionality. If you are unfortunate enough to slide your S Pen in the wrong way, you'll have a hard time unjamming it from the slot (though eventually you should be able to pry it away), but more importantly, you might disable the Note's stylus…

    Samsung’s next flagship is rumored to appear sooner than in previous years.

Could be a tactic to boost sales, after the numbers for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge haven’t reached the record made by the Galaxy S4 in 2014?

Only thing I needed to hear was Fred Amisen and Bill Hader. This episode: Think Nova meets Portlandia meets Vice, but primarily the latter two. Classic: Helen Mirren’s PBS-esque opening. Other episodes satirize other documentary clichés. More clips from the show found here.

By the time I was aware of the Cecil killing, the internet outrage was far more than anything I could come up with, so I passed even tweeting about it. Besides, the only thing I could think of to say that I hadn’t seen before was how white the dentist’s teeth were — obviously, a Photoshop job. The competitive nature of internet outrage is fascinating. My recent post about the…

Heck, even Martha Stewart got in on the act with her piece on drones in TIME yesterday. This RSS feed only shows excerpts. It will look much better on the website: Getting started with drones

  • Gmail AutoResponder is a Better Alternative to Canned Responses

    Amit Agarwal
    24 Aug 2015 | 12:27 pm
    If you find yourself writing the same email response over and over again – like a technical support request asking for instructions on how to do something or a confirmation email to customers to let them know you’ve received their message – canned responses in Gmail can help you save both time and typing. The idea is that you compose a email message with the ‘generic’ response and save it in your Gmail drafts. Later, you can quickly insert that pre-formatted template into the body of your email with a click without having to manually write the whole…
  • Adjust the Volume of your Android Phone without using the Buttons

    Amit Agarwal
    19 Aug 2015 | 7:02 am
    Most Android phones have physical buttons on the side for controlling the playback volume and, whether you are listening to podcasts or watching Youtube videos, these keys are sometimes the only way to control the app’s volume. The hardware buttons are easy to use but they are not as convenient as, say, the Control Center on the iPhone where one can change volume using the on-screen volume slider. Does something similar exist for Android devices that would allow you to control the volume without using the hardware buttons? The Google Play store throws up dozens of…

    Web pages change or may even disappear with time. Thus if you would like to preserve a web page forever, you should either need to download that page to your computer (and put it on Dropbox) or you could use a web archiving service that will safely store a copy of that page on their own servers, permanently.

However, there is little factual data that a certain color can actually make anyone do anything. Much of the evidence to support this theory is based on anecdotal accounts and loose correlations.

    20 Aug 2015 | 10:22 pm
    Android Wear at launch received several watchfaces that Google bundled. Post that, once the developers got their hands on the SDKs they crated even more watchfaces. Right from the minions to planets, to Apple Watch copy to luxury watches rip offs, there have been loads of watchfaces. However, the one thing common between these watchfaces is how little you can do with the watchface itself. Unlike the Apple watch, where there are elements of watchfaces that can trigger actions, Android Wear has been pretty bland and maybe even a little boring. However, with the latest Android Wear update, you…

    The USA’s most valuable company is delaying its television streaming service due to issues with licensing. Their current projection is that they will now go live next year. This means that Apple’s plans of launching its new service this fall have been scuppered. It could, however, turn out to be a blessing in disguise because it simply means that the tech giant now has more time to prepare. For ordinary folks, a year could be a long time to wait but time does not stand still for Apple. The tech giant may now delay the release of their exclusive iPhone 6S launch which was…

Apple says that it has hired sixty-five percent more women during the past year. Nearly 50% of the folks the company has hired to date are women. Also, black, Hispanic and Native American staff enrolments are up. It also helps that Apple’s chief executive officer is part of a minority…

    While Elon Musk, Steve Wozniak, and Stephen Hawking call for a world-wide ban on the manufacture and sale of autonomous weapons, there are some who suggest that automated terminators must live. The fear among prominent scientists and businessmen is that due to the evolutionary potential of killer robots, these things will ultimately and automatically decide who or what they can destroy. This means that everything and any human standing in their way is at risk. Science fiction ala renegade genocidal robots become reality.

Bouncers at the door feared that his colorful kit would offend other exercisers. But two gyms in the United States have an open door policy that welcomes all; irrespective of race, colour, class, religion, political affiliation, age and even disability. The last distinction is quite important. Previously, it was always difficult for people with disabilities to exercise in public spaces. They were…

    27 Aug 2015 | 4:20 am
    Go back almost two years, while we all secretly enjoyed Truecaller, we were skeptical of using it. The fear of leaving your phonebook exposed was overriding the curiosity of knowing the unknown caller. This fear made sure that as much as we liked what Truecaller offered, we were not the most vocal about the service because we would not fit well with the crowd protesting the importance of online privacy and security. Once it became clear that Truecaller was safe and adoption became more mainstream, you could not imagine how life was the same before. As long as you were in an area with some…

You’ve started a blog, engaged on social media, made videos, and done everything else you’ve been recommended. Despite your extensive efforts, you haven’t seen any increase in your business. So what’s the problem? The problem probably isn’t what you’re doing, but why you’re doing it. Even if you have a plan of what type of content you want to produce and when you want to release it, it’s not going to help you if the plan wasn’t preceded and informed by a strategy.

  • Reimbursement Barriers to Dental Screening

    Rajeev Rajagopal
    25 Aug 2015 | 11:00 pm
    According to healthcare experts, around 70 to 80 percent of bills for preventive or diagnostic dental care services such as preventive screenings, fluoride treatments and others can be covered with traditional fee-for-service plans or preferred-provider plans. While there may be co-payments and deductibles, dental care settings can claim their reimbursement from relevant carriers by reporting the services using appropriate CDT codes. However, a 2014 qualitative study by a group of American researchers discuss the several barriers that exist as regards the reimbursement for oral rapid HIV…
  • Preparations to Tackle Revenue Loss after ICD-10 Roll Out

    Meghann Kiernan
    23 Aug 2015 | 11:15 pm
    One of the most important considerations practices must have while preparing for ICD-10 is tackling the revenue loss expected to occur just after ICD-10 implementation. The biggest costs will come to practices from lost productivity and claim denials due to coding mistakes. Though bigger players may survive this sudden shortfall with their cash reserves, it may be disastrous for small practices that have already invested in ICD-10 preparations and are operating at a very tight margin. If you prepare well and employ accurate medical coding services for services provided to patients, you can…

    As the current flu season worsens, accurate vaccine coding is necessary for effective medical billing and accounting of services provided. Since influenza is constantly developing new viral strains, constant development of updated flu vaccines is vital. To keep up with this, the American Medical Association (AMA) publishes new and revised vaccine codes twice a year (January and July) when required for emergent/critical distribution, which is known as early release. These codes are indicated with a symbol and the AMA will track them to monitor the FDA approval status. The symbol will be…
  • Value-Based Reimbursement Model Highly Beneficial For Primary Care

    Rajeev Rajagopal
    16 Aug 2015 | 9:05 pm
    Primary care compensation has improved substantially, a consequence of physician and hospital reimbursement moving to value-based models based on quality and outcomes, from the earlier fee-for-service model. Healthcare staffing is also witnessing a new trend, with hospitals luring more primary care physicians through financial incentives with a view to seize more outpatient revenue in the new value-based care model. And the Affordable Care Act (ACA), or Obamacare, has a lot to do with it. This has had an effect overall on how even medical billing companies are viewing their clients.While…

There is a fun game called "six degrees of separation" and this is my attempt at finding the connection between Hollywood star Vin Diesel and Joomla. Step 1.

    Steve Brasen

    IT administrators love to write scripts – at least, the most talented ones do. Scripting provides a powerful platform to automate simple and repeatable tasks. However, like with most powerful tools, there is an overwhelming temptation for scripting to be overused. When faced with a project deadline, a high-pressure failure event, or even just the need to simplify day-to-day events, administrators can unintentionally create scripts that are so complex they actually put the business at risk. I must confess that during my 2 decades-long tenure as an IT administrator and engineer, I’ve…

    Consumers of IT services want speed and dependability above all else. When they envision a new service, they want it built and deployed in record time. While there has always been time pressure, it has become more pressing with the consumerization of IT. Consumerization describes the emergence of IT in the consumer market which then spread to business and government organizations. Users carry their devices and expectations to the workplace and want the same instant gratification, self-service mobile access, and constant stream of new apps they experience in their personal use of technology.

    There is a reason orchestras have a single conductor. Can you imagine the cacophony that would result if a horn section performed out of sync with a string section? Or if the percussions played a faster beat then the woodwinds?  But in IT management, it’s all too common for organizations to have separate automation platforms conducting individual software elements. In fact, this is often the cause of an increased IT complexity that results in degraded performance and reliability. For instance, SAP’s popular customer relationship management (CRM) software includes a built-in job scheduler…

Along with it comes at least two changes and possibly a third as well.

  • Don’t get lost, take the map! – DTO survival code

    11 Aug 2015 | 2:06 am
    There are a few topics that can turn programming community red hot. Plural or singular database table names? Should we use DTOs or not? And so on, and so forth. But that’s not the time to discuss these matters. Today we won’t deal with databases, but let’s face DTOs and map some of them around.Some multilayer applications, or even some simple ones with a legacy code, need to take care of mapping some objects to another, usually domain objects to DTOs or different versions of DTOs. Say one is for administration, other for portal, and yet another for API. Or you need to map…

    6 Jul 2015 | 7:44 am
    About 2500 years ago there lived a brilliant Chinese military strategist, general Sun Tzu. His life’s work was a book entitled “The  Art of War”. It is full of ideas or in a way design patterns for winning small to large-scale conflicts in the most optimal ways.Even though the book is now 25 centuries old it still inspires leaders in our times. Sun Tzu believed that one of the better ways to win a war was to avoid a fight in a clever way. In our beloved software industry there are actually quite a few who believe the same.

    I am going on record with my best guess before it all comes out. This assumes no censorious SJW vast conspiracy or sudden “electrical fire” doesn’t destroy the unadulterated ballots. I don’t seriously think there is a real possibility of the voting being unfairly counted or outright faked, but… humans. You know the species. Anyway, here are my predictions: Vox Day will actually get a nomination for best short form editor. The only corollary to this is the whole category not being No Awarded, which is possible, but I will tend to assume it is probably not the…

    The last few seasons in the online business industry has seen a great deal of sexy work being penned on the merits of so-called “big data.” Although there are many advantages to big data, it should not be looked at as a cure-all for everything that ails you in your business endeavors. For instance, although Tableau on Hadoop is a great way to connect different types of data, you actually have to know what to do with that data for any of the consolidation to be worth anything.

  • Clean It Up? Clean Labels Pose New Challenges For Manufacturers

    M Nugent
    24 Aug 2015 | 8:09 am
    Competition for the consumer continues to increase among food manufacturers. One path to competitive advantage is clean labels, which addresses the consumer demand for transparency in ingredient lists. The idea of creating products that have fewer ingredients and/or more natural ingredients is something that I can’t help but think is a step in the right direction. Source: However, the clean label product must still deliver on taste so it may not make sense for some products to consider this. For example, a personal favorite, the Oreo, is not likely to be a candidate for a clean…

    The popular interpretation of Behavioral Economics models suggests that because people are so reliant on intuitive (sometimes described as unconscious) decision-making shortcuts we cannot capture their opinions via direct questioning. What’s missing from this reading, supported by many academic studies including those by Daniel Kahneman himself, is the fact that for people to develop these shortcuts there first had to be a knowledge-gathering process upon which their intuition could rely. For survey research to be effective, we must do a better job of allowing people to consciously access…

Those of us who have studied marketing in school and have worked in the industry tend to be a bit cynical about some of the gimmicks and ploys companies use to encourage us to buy their products and services. However, when we see our favorite product sitting on the store shelf in a fun new package (right next to the package we’ve always bought), and it costs a little more than we’re used to paying, we’re still pretty likely to put that in our cart – and we’re savvy enough to know that the product inside is exactly same as…

To begin with, you get to enjoy less than that because part of it is allocated to OS X and installed apps. When the movies and pictures started piling up, I quickly realized that I need more space.

  • I Bought an Apple Watch and Returned it

    13 Jun 2015 | 4:34 pm
    I was one of those people who pre-ordered the apple watch at 12 am on April 10 and still got the shipping estimate of June. I had bought the Space black stainless steel with link bracelet. It cost a whooping $1195 with taxes here in California and I was praying that it better be god damn good to justify that price. Sadly, it wasn’t. When I got it on June 2nd, after the usual adrenaline rush of unboxing an apple product subsided, and after using it for about a week, I came to the conclusion that this is a product that Steve Jobs would never have let to be launched in its current state. But…

  • Google Image Search is Peeping your PDF’s

    Andre Sólo
    27 Aug 2015 | 1:57 am
    What does your company use PDF’s for? The answer may range from info products to reports to clients to “absolutely nothing.” But if you do have PDFs tucked away somewhere on your site, it’s important to know that Google can now take them apart and show the images in search results. The PDF Search Finding PDFs in search results is nothing new. If a PDF is indexed somewhere on your site, it can turn up in relevant search results. (This can be a problem with carelessly uploaded internal reports.) However, previously PDFs were an all-or-nothing game. If it was deemed…
  • It Turns Out CTR Does NOT Affect Search Results

    Andre Sólo
    26 Aug 2015 | 1:50 am
    Without a doubt, click through rate (CTR) is one of the most important metrics considered in SEO and internet marketing. CTR is a percentage, showing how many people click on your site when they’re offered the link. The higher the CTR, the more traffic and (hopefully) the more sales. But CTR doesn’t do everything. For some time, the SEO industry has wondered if Google uses it as a ranking factor—in other words, better CTR means better search rankings. The theory is that people clicking on your site from the search results acts as a vote that your site is valuable. But…
  • Why is Google Suddenly a Subsidiary Company?

    Andre Sólo

    Google is in the habit of paying millions or even billions of dollars to buy other companies—some of which, like Youtube, were giants in their own right but still looked tiny compared to the big G. So if you asked me to name one company that would not become a subsidiary of someone else, Google would probably have been my pick. But, in a surprise announcement, that’s exactly what happened last week. On August 10, with no warning, Google announced to major shifts: it will now be a wholly owned subsidiary of a new parent company, Alphabet; and its two founders are leaving Google…

  • 4 Ways To Build Links for Your E-Commerce Site

    Andre Sólo
    20 Aug 2015 | 2:07 am
    How do you attract links to an e-commerce website? E-commerce is fundamentally different from other business websites, because the main point is to move products—and product pages just aren’t good link bait. Given that SEO still depends heavily on backlinks, that puts online stores at a disadvantage compared to informational sites or the online homes of physical businesses. There are ways around this, however. The most recommended strategy for e-commerce sites is “content marketing,” but content marketing can mean many things. Luckily, a recent article by Stephan Spencer gets to…

    Americans are increasingly ditching their desktops and reaching for their mobile devices to access the internet instead.  For this reason, mobile broadband – or internet access from any mobile device – was included in the FCC's recently adopted net neutrality proposal, making it subject to many of the same constraints and regulations as the wired internet. This has added another layer to the hot-button debate on net neutrality – the concept that all data transmitted over the internet, from all sources, ranging from established digital content companies like Netflix to…

    Step Aside For the 4G Enabled Helio S1 via - Edison Group, the company behind Bangladeshi smartphone powerhouse Symphony has joined forces with local telecom operator Grameenphone to launch a new premium 4G enabled smartphone dubbed the Helio S1. From what we understand, the Helio brand is not directly under Symphony even though it is found on the Symphony website.

    16 Jul 2015 | 4:25 am
    Here’s how to build a grid layout for WordPress via shortcodes and WP_Query: A lot of WordPress developers immediately rush to query_posts in order to create custom loops. But, query_posts is meant for altering the main loop of a WordPress page/post (actually, it’s not even recommended for that anymore). Using get_posts() is okay… but, if you want that real WordPress flavor using WP_Query is the way to go. In the video above, I show you how to use WP_Query to create a custom loop inside WordPress in order to build a Pinterest-style grid layout. Here’s the code I used…

    These days smartphones are coming out with large amount of RAM. For example, Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Asus Zenfone 2 sport a massive 4 GB of RAM. The reason behind this that people use lots of heavy games and apps which requires good amount of RAM. Also after some time, your device can start to perform slowly and RAM can be the reason behind it. The only problem with amount of RAM is that we

  • Integrity Is What You Do When No One Is Watching

    Joe Kinsella
    22 Aug 2015 | 3:20 pm
    This weekend I've been thinking about integrity - specifically the importance of surrounding yourself with people of high integrity, and striving to achieve integrity in all your personal / professional relationships. I'd like to share a story from my past that has always inspired me. Since I did not ask permission from the people involved, I'll be a little vague on the specifics. Several years ago I was in a startup that had to navigate some market turbulence. To help motivate the management team, the CEO worked with the board to put in place a multi-million dollar hold back. The idea of the…

    This morning I took a journey back through my blog, reflecting on my three year journey in founding CloudHealth Technologies. It's hard to believe how quickly the time has passed from working out of the entrepreneur space at NBVP to having a fast growing company in downtown Boston. Here is my journey as told through selective blog posts: And So It Begins (2012) I had originally thought of starting CloudHealth in 2010 after deciding to leave Dell. I suppose it was obvious to explore creating a business at the intersection of my two interests: cloud computing and infrastructure management. But…
  • 3 Steps To Making Good Group Decision

    Joe Kinsella
    9 Aug 2015 | 7:58 am
    One of the most common soft skill gaps with software engineers is the ability to influence others. This gap of course is a byproduct of the nature of our work. From the time we graduate college, our influence is directed more at the technology we use than the people with whom we work. The result is that software engineers are often highly optimized for making decisions in our heads, and under optimized for making decisions within a group. I like to think there are three phases to making any good group decision within a technical team: brainstorm, collaborate and communicate. Unfortunately too…
  • Dust-Up in the Agile World

    21 Jul 2015 | 1:36 pm
    I read a recent blog post by Adam Pisoni, CTO & co-founder of Yammer, titled I’m Sorry But Agile Won’t Fix Your Products. It’s a great read and drives home a truth that often gets overlooked in our industry: small, empowered and self-organizing teams almost always produce better products than larger, top-down led and longer-lived teams. Overall it gives you a glimpse into some of the newer approaches to management that have emerged from the Valley in the last few years (e.g. Holacracy, Lean). The only downside to the post was the fact he made a number of false statements about Agile…

    21 Jul 2015 | 5:01 am
    Over the last few weeks I’ve interviewed many 2015 graduates seeking jobs in software development. The good news is: there are a lot of talented young developers coming into the workforce. The bad news is: too many of these are poorly prepared to find their first software jobs. Here are some tips to consider as a new freshman this fall for preparing yourself in finding your first job after graduation. #1: Consider Your Major I’m assuming there must be lots of people who get jobs outside software with CE/IT/EE majors, but due to my exclusive software focus, I unfortunately do not see them.

    I'm not sure we've gone a week without a new story about Windows 10 invading our privacy, and this week is no exception. Earlier this week, The Independent noticed that Windows 10 will automatically send parents detailed logs of their childrens' Internet activity by default if they open up a family account on the computer. There's no warning for either the children or the parents that this is happening, which raises some very serious questions about Microsoft's right to decide what information parents have access to.

    I have the nerd watch, the 42mm Space Gray Aluminum with the Black Sport Band. It was ordered at launch and arrived late. I have been wearing and using it every day since. The Apple Watch is a perfectly good watch for doing watch-like things, like telling the time. But if you view it as a wrist computer, one that has had a real impact on how one acts and behaves, it is something uniquely special. And it has changed my behavior patterns, without me knowing about it, for the better. Let’s start with the initial time-checking glance itself. In my case I have the rings, the temperature, the…

    I have been using a set of productivity enhancement tools on my Mac for so long now that the standard, out-of-box OS X user experience seems challenging, crawling, cumbersome and somewhat convoluted. So much so that it has become frustrating for me to use another person’s Mac. In this post, I intend to outline how the limited set of productivity tools I use give me “ludicrous speed”. Note that I have invested the time to learn these tools and to create the productivity shortcuts they provide. Maybe it will help you with ideas to be more productive too. Keyboard Maestro…

  • Enterprise tablet adoption just waiting to take off, analyst claims

    26 Aug 2015 | 4:23 pm
    (c) In January this year, this correspondent wrote: “If there’s a company at the moment which is changing the face of tablet computing in the enterprise, it’s Microsoft.” Now a report from Strategy Analytics argues the iPad Pro will launch into a surge of enterprise tablet growth – thanks in no small part to the groundwork Microsoft has done with the Surface Pro 3.

  • Millennial workforce increasingly frustrated by company-issued collaboration tools

    25 Aug 2015 | 4:22 pm
    (c) More and more workers understand the benefits of collaboration tools in the enterprise – but continue to be thwarted by the tools at their disposal. That’s the key finding from survey data released by Alfresco Software, which notes a distinct generational gap in terms of how employees like to get their work done. Nowhere is this better encapsulated than in terms of company-issued collaboration tools; 71% of millennials face challenges with the software, compared to 45% of the baby boomer generation. As a result, the report reveals what many already know…
  • The common lie of ubiquitous mobile coverage for enterprise apps

    25 Aug 2015 | 4:22 pm
    (c) I have a lot of trouble spelling ubiquitous, but it is a great word and worth the trouble – it means found everywhere. So my proposition is that the universally held truth that mobile coverage is everywhere is indeed a bold lie, but such a good lie that it is rarely challenged. The corollary of this lie is that enterprise mobile apps can be based on web technology and that their resulting dependence on coverage is not an issue. In truth, mobile coverage has improved dramatically in the past five years, with mobile voice and data becoming the cash cow of the…
  • The empire strikes back: Microsoft’s mobile strategy - will Cortana usurp Google Now?

    25 Aug 2015 | 8:18 am
    (c) I was interested recently to see that Microsoft’s Cortana personal assistant can replace Google Now in Android beta test versions. Google originally created Android as a defensive move so that it couldn’t be frozen out of mobile by Apple or Microsoft, so while today this sounds like a hobbyist project, the possibility of Microsoft replacing Google services in Android shouldn’t be dismissed lightly. The world has moved on from the days when Google was afraid of Windows Mobile, but with Microsoft having mostly abandoned its previous mobile strategy and…

    (Image Credit: iStockPhoto/iStockFinland) Earlier this month, we posted a piece on a sister publication which suggested that "security is not in mind" when it comes to the IoT. The article was in reference to yet another hack of a connected vehicle, a Corvette, following the high-profile hack of a Jeep in July.  As we give devices an online presence, it's clear that security needs to be paramount as these machines learn more about us and help to automate mundane tasks.
