  • Zillow Kills Competition With $3.5 Billion Trulia Deal

    Helen A.S. Popkin
    28 Jul 2014 | 11:19 am
    It takes more than “Zestimates” and other zippy technology to make money in real-estate listings, as evidenced by the $3.5 billion in stock that Zillow agreed to drop in order to snap up its chief competitor, Trulia.The impending Trulia acquisition could centralize listings and tools for home sellers. The joined company says it will provide “advertising and software solutions that help real estate professionals grow their business.” Real-estate sites cannot dominate the Internet with lookie-loos alone; they must have advertising dollars.

    When a San Francisco-based tech recruiter—we'll call her "Sally," a pseudonym—filed a restraining order against an ex-boyfriend, the court documents listed Facebook, Pinterest, and even Etsy as no-go zones for him. But it was LinkedIn that Sally was worried about. “He started following what I was doing on LinkedIn,” Sally told me. “Who I was connecting with.

    Buick owners enjoying their car’s built-in LTE in a photo provided by GM Last week, General Motors invited me to a press event at which it showed off some new Buicks. Normally, such events involve driving new cars. But when we hit the road during this one, I willingly sat in the back seat and fooled around with my phone and tablet–because the primary purpose of the event was to demonstrate the 4G LTE broadband and Wi-Fi hotspot features built into the cars. Across its brands, GM is being particularly aggressive about rolling out in-vehicle LTE connectivity. Most Buick models,…
  • A Celebration of James Garner’s Polaroid Commercials

    Harry McCracken
    20 Jul 2014 | 11:52 am
    They weren’t the best thing he ever did, or the one which we’ll cherish the most. But with the sad news of the passing of James Garner, it’s worth pausing to remember the commercials he did in the late 1970s and early 1980s for Polaroid. And–this being Technologizer–it’s how we’ll memorialize him here. When it came to celebrity spokespeople, Polaroid wasn’t stingy: Laurence Olivier did the first ad for the SX-70 camera, and Danny Kaye touted the ill-fated Polavision instant movie system. Hiring James Garner was a similarly classy move, but the…

    A DreamWorks Animation artist works on How to Train Your Dragon 2 using Premo Mr. Peabody and Sherman, the computer-animated movie which DreamWorks Animation released in March is–of course–the tale of a dog and a boy who go traveling back in time. So in a way, it’s appropriate that the proprietary software which the studio used to animate it, Emo, had a lot of history behind it. Emo’s origins go back to the 1980s, an era in which computer graphics were very different than they are today, and DreamWorks didn’t even exist. It was created by Pacific Data Images, the…

    Thanks to wearable fitness gadgets such as Jawbone’s Up and Up24 wristbands, it’s now very easy to get some sense of how many calories you’re burning as you go about your everyday activities. But figuring out how many calories you’re consuming–and other aspects of your eating habits–is still work. Jawbone’s smartphone apps, and the ones which work with other gizmos such as FitBit, include tools which let you log your meals. I frequently get excited about using them.

    There comes a day, once in a hundred years, where one finds the perfect story.  A story so absurd, so bizarre, that the simple description of the situation one uses as the headline reads like something from poorly-written science fiction.  At last, that day has come for us. All Russia’s Foton-M4 satellite wanted was to observe how the five onboard geckos would mate in zero gravity, but that was too simple of a destiny for the craft.  Instead, Russia lost its control connection to the satellite; they’re still receiving data from the satellite about how the lizards are doing, but…

    We take air conditioners for granted, and we really shouldn’t.  ACs are probably the only reason that people can live in places like Arizona or New Mexico without literally melting under the sun’s brutal rays.  But when air conditioning was new, people didn’t have the same casual attitude. Most of these are from when air conditioning hit the market, in the twentieth century, and such reactions are certainly interesting (I especially like the Mississippi Democrat who tried to politicize such unnatural coldness as a “Republican atmosphere.”  That’s…

GIS can now isolate patterns, adjust strategies and pinpoint the biggest opportunities for businesses. “Much of the discussion on big data is focusing on volume — the hours of video on the Web, social media interactions — but the challenge is to present the ocean of data as a pool of useful facts,” said Simon Thompson, director of commercial solutions at GIS…

  • The Major Industry Battle Brewing Between Samsung vs Google

    Tim Bajarin
    25 Jul 2014 | 1:22 am
    Over the last five years, Samsung has become a behemoth in the tech marketplace. Their smartphones dominate the tech landscape and their profits have been relatively good until recently, considering the fact they still make most of their money on hardware. However, as we have seen in the PC market, a hardware only business model is not sustainable. Indeed, as smartphones become more and more commoditized, Samsung’s profits margins will soon be squeezed — especially by competitors like Xaomi who is eating their lunch in China. While they are one of the most vertically integrated…

  • Rising Share Prices Could Ignite A New Tech Acquisition Spree

    Alex Wilhelm
    28 Jul 2014 | 1:03 pm
     In early 2014, a number of high-profile acquisitions were locked in at prices that many found confusing. The good times are probably coming back. Companies that compete across numerous technology strata like Google, Apple, Microsoft, and Facebook are trading near record highs — or at least, the highest prices they’ve seen in a decade. Those same companies are all incredibly cash-rich. Read More

     Newcomers to Silicon Valley are often shocked at how appallingly bad the transit options between San Francisco and the rest of the region can be. It’s a legacy of fragmented regional governance where nine different counties created at least 10 different semi-overlapping public rail and bus systems. BART was originally going to connect the entire region but two counties dropped out in… Read More

    25 Jul 2014 | 12:15 am
    By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) As you might have noticed, I like to interview people. Really important people. I literally made myself a list of individuals that I would one day, somehow, hope to have the privilege to interview. Some of them were a little out there. You know, people like the actress Alyssa Milano (remember Who’s the Boss? Good times.), Om Malik, the father of tech journalism, and even Steve Wozniak who founded this small company called Apple with his buddy Steve Jobs in their garage. I set myself some pretty high goals and so far, so good. Alyssa Milano One of the people…

I mean, we all know that prior to every big Apple launch of any kind, the rumor mill goes into high gear. How often are those rumors accurate? Not very often… But then there are some sources that you just know are reliable. Marques Brownlee is one such source. And this video of the iPhone 6 display is obviously legit so can we just put that behind us and discuss the topic at hand? Great. According to many sources, the iPhone will introduce the first display on a mobile phone made out of…

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

Sounds like another silly Twitter post trying to tell me that something as simple and trivial as a Twitter favorite is really a secret marketing tool. Sounds crazy, I know. I hope you change your mind after hearing me out. Allow me to begin my opening statements with a question. What, in your opinion, is the difference between sales and marketing? After all, both sales and marketing have the same ultimate goal, to encourage you to buy/use/adopt a product/concept/service, right? I mean if marketing does…

As my role of CMO at Zula, I am fortunate to work for a company that gets it. The company understands what too many companies still do not, that push marketing, self promotion, and spammy aggressive tactics simply do not work. The way to market a brand today is to provide value, whether that value is in the form of content, thought leadership, or just some help opening the right doors. I know, I…

  • EFF Asks Court To Declare NSA's 'Internet Backbone' Collections Unconstitutional

    Tim Cushing
    28 Jul 2014 | 1:11 pm
    Snowden's leaks continue to help build the EFF's case against the NSA. Its lawsuit against the intelligence agency (filed on behalf of several plaintiffs, Carolyn Jewel being named first) was filed in 2008, but has gained significant traction over the past twelve months. This case is also at the center of the DOJ's on-again, off-again metadata destruction plans, which ultimately resulted in the FISA court backing up the district court's preservation order preventing the destruction of relevant aged-off Section 702 data. The DOJ said one thing and did another, in the end destroying evidence…

    The government seems unable (and unwilling) to differentiate between whistleblowers and "insider threats." "Dissatisfaction with US policies" would seem to be a trait inherent to whistleblowers, but that's right up there at the top of the list of warning signs for insider threats. The FBI claimed it had this whistleblower/threat problem sorted out, abelit in the worst way possible: requiring whistleblowers to "register" in order to avoid being caught in the "insider threat" dragnet. But no one can get any details out of the agency as to how "registering" whistleblowers encourages…

    We've covered a few attempts in Europe to create what appears to basically be a tax on Google News for newspapers. These newspapers, who have been struggling to adapt in the modern internet world would like to blame Google News for their own failures, despite the fact that Google sends them traffic. When a court case in Belgium was won by the newspapers, Google simply removed those newspapers from the local Google News... and those very same newspapers freaked out and demanded to be let back in. This, of course, demonstrates the vast hypocrisy by the newspapers here. They know they need to be…

    For years, we've pointed to the legacy entertainment industry's history of trying to kill the golden goose any time a new and successful service has come along that actually helped drive them into the modern era. These services never actually come out of the industry itself, and thus are almost always hated (often with a passion) by the legacy players who failed to innovate, and now fear the potential alternative power in their industry. It's no secret that the legacy record labels and studios maintain their position by trying to control every aspect of their market, rather than by innovating…
  • Former CIA/NSA Boss Michael Hayden Admits Ed Snowden Was A Whistleblower

    Mike Masnick
    28 Jul 2014 | 9:02 am
    Ever since Snowden first leaked the documents he took from the NSA, there's been a (somewhat ridiculous) debate over whether or not he was a "whistleblower" or "a traitor" (or potentially somewhere in between). However, it seems like many fall into one of those somewhat polar opposite positions. To many of us, it's been quite clear that he's a whistleblower. However, to folks like former NSA and CIA boss Michael Hayden, the view has been somewhat different. After all, Hayden has directly called Snowden a traitor, claimed that he was worse than a variety of spies (including the Rosenbergs,…

     Amazon’s Fire Phone is out today, and while it’s got some interesting features that set it apart from your run-of-the-mill Android phone, it doesn’t seem like it will appeal to those who aren’t voracious online shoppers.

  • August Games With Gold Revealed

    Edwin Kee
    28 Jul 2014 | 11:28 am
    We learned sometime in the fourth quarter of last year that Microsoft will be extending their Games with Gold program indefinitely. First of all, here is a little bit of background information – Microsoft’s ‘Games with Gold’ program will offer free games to those who subscribe to Microsoft’s Xbox Live Gold tier for the Xbox One and the Xbox 360. In August 2014, however, the Games with Gold program will see the introduction of Strike Suit Zero: Directors Cut and Crimson Dragon on the Xbox One, while folks who are still rocking to the previous generation consoles will…
  • XOLO Win Q900s Ordered, Wrong Models Sent Out

    28 Jul 2014 | 11:21 am
    XOLO of India has just introduced its first Windows Phone device, or so many would think that way, calling it the Win Q900s. The XOLO Win Q900s is proud to boast itself to be the lightest smartphone in the world, where it tips the scales at just 100 grams, although it is with a ‘world’s lightest smartphone’, weighing just 100g, Basically, the Win Q900s is a smartphone that runs on Windows Phone instead of Android, that is the XOLO Q900s. While this particular device hit the market with Snapdeal before it made its way over to Flipkart, it seems that there is a hiccup…
  • Xbox One Pre-Orders In China Kick Off Today

    28 Jul 2014 | 11:12 am
    They say that good things come to those who wait – do you believe this particular saying? If you have answered in the affirmative, then you would be pleased as punch to hear that Microsoft’s next generation Xbox One is now available for pre-order over in China. It was just yesterday that the alleged Xbox One promotional materials for China leaked out, and I suppose there is no longer any more need for leaks since the Xbox One pre-order has already gone official in the world’s most populous country. The Xbox One will go on sale from September onward thanks to a partnership with China…

    Competition between mobile carriers can get rather intensive at times, and T-Mobile has come up with their Simple Choice Family Plan that laughs in the face of AT&T’s ‘Best Ever Pricing for Families’. Basically, T-Mobile will ensure that a family of four (the basic model where there is a set of parents and two children) will be able to enjoy up to 10GB of LTE data all the way until July 2016. Of course, this particular offer is made available from July 30 all the way through to September this year. When one compares T-Mobile’s $100 price with AT&T’s “Best-Ever…

    When it comes to Android-powered tablets, those are dime a dozen. LG, however, looks set to go a little bit higher up the hierarchy with their latest LG Tab Book 11. The LG Tab Book 11 happens to be an 11.6” Android-powered tablet that will run on an Intel Core i5 Haswell processor, and it even boasts of an integrated keyboard that allows you to make use of this particular portable computing device in the same manner as that of a notebook, except that Android is the operating system of choice instead of the usual Windows fare that you are used to all this while.

  • The Skully Augmented Motorcycle Helmet Would Make Iron Man Jealous

    Rob Enderle
    28 Jul 2014 | 6:39 am
    Skully had its coming-out party last week, and while the name unfortunately sounds like the nickname for any number of comic book villains -- from Skeletor to the Red Skull -- it is actually a firm that makes a pretty incredible high-technology motorcycle helmet, with technology similar to Google Glass. Because it is often cheaper to implement things like electric motors in bikes, and because the need is actually higher, I think Skully's AR-1 represents the first big step in making motorcycle riding both safer and more fun.

    Google is seeking 175 volunteers from whom it will collect bodily samples in an effort to create their biochemical fingerprints and establish the baseline for a healthy body. The Baseline study, to be run by Google X labs, will seek to connect traditional clinical observations of health, such as diet -- or habits, such as smoking -- with molecular-level changes. The idea is to note changes before symptoms appear and provide treatment. The study is a pilot run by molecular biologist Andrew Conrad of Google X with a clinical partner.

    For long-suffering Linux users who have endured the dearth of high-quality action games on their open source desktops, the wait for better game developer support soon may be over. New technology is making Linux more attractive to game makers. In fact, it may keep Linux under the hood, so players will have no clue Linux is inside. Until now, game makers have relied primarily on Windows PCs and gaming consoles powered by proprietary alternatives to the Linux OS. However, Linux-based systems specially designed for gaming are on the rise.
  • IBM Is a 'Kindred Spirit': Whoa, Tim Cook, Whoa

    25 Jul 2014 | 6:22 am
    The Apple deal with IBM has shown us a whole new side of Tim Cook -- the gushing, hype-laden, excited-but-still-vague Tim Cook who says things like "kindred spirit," "huge opportunity," and "radical step for enterprise." Who peppers his speech with words like "profound," "complementary," "landmark" and "thrilled." Now, I'm a big fan of Tim Cook, but when he uttered this, "We fit together like a puzzle, and so this is profound. It is landmark. It's historic," my mouth dropped open and I felt compelled to look away.

    In a rare move, Apple on Thursday rolled out a beta version of its upcoming desktop operating system, OS X Yosemite, to a million "testers." The company pulled the wraps off Yosemite at the World Wide Developers Conference in June and has been tweaking it for developers since that time, but this latest version is a beta that as many as one million members of the public can download. This is the first time Apple has offered a public beta of OS X since it introduced the operating system in 2000.

    If you haven’t seen it yet, I highly recommend the DEF CON documentary that came out last year. For nearly two hours, you get a detailed history of the event and get a pretty good introduction to the major players who make the whole thing work. If you’re going for the first time, the documentary, directed by Jason Scott Sadofsky, is must-viewing. The post First-Time DEF CON Attendee?

That was the scenario Friday when some of us Akamites (Akamai employees) were talking about the content for a new site in the works.

Use that – or a similarly supportive phrase – on a first date or even in an initial tweet with a guy you’re really into, and you could’ve made a love match for life. Seriously. In probably the most important science news of the day, researchers say that establishing an emotional connection is the key to a first date turning into a long-term relationship, and that nothing makes a man feel more connected than a woman who’s…

It seems like only last week that Microsoft announced massive job cuts and the axing of Nokia X, the small line of Android phones that the company launched at the start of the year. (If you’re wondering why ‘Nokia’, remember that Microsoft bought Nokia’s phone division in March). So it was perhaps a little unexpected to see Nokia X receive an update adding some new features.

Microsoft wouldn’t be the first company to come up with something like this: third party cradles for mobile devices which split the controller like this have…

    This week, we have seen some news items about Microsoft and its OS strategy. Based on CEO Satya Nadella’s remarks in the post-earnings conference call, many were led to believe that Microsoft is going to create a single version of Windows. That is of course not true, and what’s happening is also not new information. What is in fact happening is that from an engineering perspective, Microsoft is hard at work to make a single “core” of the OS which will then power devices of various types: phones, phablets, tablets, laptops, PCs, Xbox, and even “things” in…

    Next month it's going to be one year since LG launched their curved OLED TV in the US (for $14,999). LG kept lowering the price of this TV, and today I found out that it is being sold on for $3,299. That's an almost 80% price drop in less than a year!In fact, LG's OLED TV now costs less than Samsung's curved 4K LED-LCD TV, the UN55HU9000 (which sells on Amazon today for $3,497). So now you can choose - a sharper curved 4K LCD or a FHD OLED with its infinite contrast, better colors and slimmer design. Read more about OLED TV prices keep falling: LG's 55" curved FHD TV now…
  • OLEDNet: it's highly likely that AUO is supplying AMOLED panels to Gionee

    OLEDNet posted an interesting article saying that Gionee's upcoming GN9005 ultra-slim smartphone uses a 4.8" HD AMOLED Panel (306 PPI) made by AU Optronics. OLEDNet says that the fact that this panel is called "AMOLED" and not "Super AMOLED" like SDC's panels is a hint, and in addition, it is a low-performance panel compared to the SDC-made 5" FHD 441 PPI panel Gionee used in their previous phone (the Elife S5.5).I'm not sure I'm convinced - this panel could still be made by SDC, even if it does not specifically use the Super AMOLED brand (this is up to Gionee I believe to decide).

    19 Jun 2014 | 6:33 am
    Researchers from New Zealand's Victoria University are developing MRAM devices (MTJs) based on rare earth nitrides (RENs). RENs, grown under ulta-high vacuum are both magnetic and semiconducting.The team is basing its work on europium nitride, which is not usually magnetic, but has been "tricked" into behaving like a magnet by being produced with slightly too few nitrogen atoms. Those RENs are grown in France's Centre for Research on Hetero-Epitaxy and Applications. Source: ZDNet
  • Graphene Quantum Dots to enable next-gen flash memory devices

    19 Jun 2014 | 2:36 am
    One of the problems with flash memory is that it is sensitive to defects. To solve this problem, researchers from Samsung Electronics are developing flash devices based on graphene quantum dots (GQDs). The performance of such a device is promising, with an electron density that is comparable to semiconductor and metal nanocrystal based memories. Those flash memory can also be made flexible and transparent.The researchers used GQDs in three different sizes (6, 12, and 27 nm) between silicon dioxide layers. The memory of the QDs depend on their sizes: the 12 nm dot for example offers the…
  • CNT-based NRAM may enable a universal memory

    14 Jun 2014 | 11:37 am
    Nantero has been developing NRAM (carbon nanotube based memory) for a long time, and now they collaborated with researchers from Chuo University to show how this memory features high-speed, low-power-consumption and high-reliability operation.An NRAM memory cell is made from a thin CNT film sandwiched between two metal electrodes. When voltage is applied, the CNTs come closer to each other (due to electrostatic force and intermolecular force) and the resistivity is lowered. When the voltage drops to zero, the CNTs do not separate as they are tightly attached. This creates a non-volatile…
  • Toshiba developed STT-MRAM based microprocessor cache memory

    12 Jun 2014 | 5:45 am
    Toshiba developed new STT-MRAM technology that can be used to enable MRAM based cache memory for microprocessors. The L2 cache alone uses about 80% of the power consumed by the CPU, so reducing the power consumption of the cache is very important - and STT-MRAM may reduce this consumption by about 60%. It's not clear how close is this technology to actually being commercialized.Toshiba's new STT-MRAM uses a dual-cell (2T-2MTJ) circuit in which the two MTJs have complementary resistive states (high and low resistive states). This eliminates the leak path and also increases the readout signal…

    Maybe the Chinese government paid Microsoft a visit to discuss ways of combating the rampant piracy of Microsoft's products in their country. Microsoft Corp appears to be the latest U.S. company targeted by China for antitrust investigation as government officials paid sudden visits to the software firm's Chinese offices on Monday.

  • Amazon's Fire Phone Costs $205 To Build

    28 Jul 2014 | 1:07 pm
    Amazon's Fire Phone costs more than an iPhone 5S to build. I guess that explains its $650 pricing ($199 on contract). According to a report due to be released today, a preview of which was seen by Re/code, claims that the Fire Phone costs $205 to build, slightly higher than the $199 estimated build price of the iPhone 5S, but substantially lower than the $256 build price of Samsung's flagship Galaxy S5.

The intent is to crack down on mobile distractions while driving, with recent reports suggesting that more than 500 people are killed or seriously injured each year in the UK because drivers have been calling, texting or posting to social media.

  • EFF Asks Court To Declare NSA's 'Internet Backbone' Collections Unconstitutional

    Tim Cushing
    28 Jul 2014 | 1:11 pm
    Snowden's leaks continue to help build the EFF's case against the NSA. Its lawsuit against the intelligence agency (filed on behalf of several plaintiffs, Carolyn Jewel being named first) was filed in 2008, but has gained significant traction over the past twelve months. This case is also at the center of the DOJ's on-again, off-again metadata destruction plans, which ultimately resulted in the FISA court backing up the district court's preservation order preventing the destruction of relevant aged-off Section 702 data. The DOJ said one thing and did another, in the end destroying evidence…

"Dissatisfaction with US policies" would seem to be a trait inherent to whistleblowers, but that's right up there at the top of the list of warning signs for insider threats. The FBI claimed it had this whistleblower/threat problem sorted out, abelit in the worst way possible: requiring whistleblowers to "register" in order to avoid being caught in the "insider threat" dragnet.

    We've covered a few attempts in Europe to create what appears to basically be a tax on Google News for newspapers. These newspapers, who have been struggling to adapt in the modern internet world would like to blame Google News for their own failures, despite the fact that Google sends them traffic. When a court case in Belgium was won by the newspapers, Google simply removed those newspapers from the local Google News... and those very same newspapers freaked out and demanded to be let back in. This, of course, demonstrates the vast hypocrisy by the newspapers here. They know they need to be…

    For years, we've pointed to the legacy entertainment industry's history of trying to kill the golden goose any time a new and successful service has come along that actually helped drive them into the modern era. These services never actually come out of the industry itself, and thus are almost always hated (often with a passion) by the legacy players who failed to innovate, and now fear the potential alternative power in their industry. It's no secret that the legacy record labels and studios maintain their position by trying to control every aspect of their market, rather than by innovating…

Bemo is a small, one-touch video camera that syncs up with an app for recording. The limitations are worth noting with this new camera—you can’t take stills, and the video is recorded in 720p. Being a one-touch device, there’s no zoom or auto-focus or anything like that. It’s essentially a Vine machine—something you can whip out to capture six seconds of craziness with your friends.

    Verily it is the season of devices which deliver dollops of superb performance at relatively low prices. We have already seen the Moto G and the Lumia 630 do just that, pretty much redefining what we can expect from a sub USD 200-225 device. And now, Asus has thrown the ZenFone 5 into the same ring...

  • 5 Effective Ways to Monetize Freemium Apps

    Raja Manoharan
    23 May 2014 | 3:21 am
    App monetization is a hot topic today. More and more app developers are finding that their users don’t want to pay to download an app – they want it free, and they’re willing to suffer through advertising and other marketing methods to get that free price point. In fact, free apps routinely outperform paid apps in all categories save a couple (business utilities and navigation). Does that mean you’re doomed never to make a profit from your efforts? Not at all. Freemium has become the new standard, and some experts expect it to account for up to 93% of the global app market in just a…
  • Top 6 Tips to Get Your Content Shared

    Mercy Livingstone
    13 May 2014 | 3:14 am
    Getting your content shared is essential for anyone engaged in online marketing of any kind. Going “viral” is the goal, but it’s harder to achieve than you might realize. Truth be told, there’s no golden rule, no magic bullet, that guarantees your content will go viral. In fact, most marketing experts have no idea why one post goes viral when another doesn’t achieve that critical mass. However, while viral spread might be the Holy Grail of online marketing, creating content that get shared is more important. You might never attain “viral” status, but good content that’s shared…

  • Tizen: hope springs eternal

    The technology press and bloggers really seem to have no idea what to make of Tizen. First, it was a huge, credible threat to Android (*), but now that even people who really, really, really want to see Android in trouble can no longer maintain that Tizen is a serious threat, it's now apparently magically a sign of Samsung's weakness. Or, if you believe Reuters, it's a sign of... Both? Or something?

The number of user-facing features is small (Windows Phone is finally getting folder support!), but it increases support for different resolutions and screen sizes - up to 7". More features might be coming that aren't yet leaked, but the focus of the update is clear: hardware support.

    Antivirus peddler Trend Micro recently issued a "report", in which it states that "Google Play [is] populated with fake apps, with more than half carrying malware". Sounds scary, right? Well, reality is a little different, as TechRepulic and Android Police found out. It turns out that Trend Micro is guilty of a little over-eager language that obfuscated the nature of some of these threats. While there are indeed fake versions of many popular Android apps available for download, Trend failed to mention in their initial promotion for the report that the apps in question were posted outside the…

Pictured to the left is the standard view when you open Files. It shows several "drives", C:, E: and F: with F: being your memory card if your Symbian device has a memory card (SD, Mini/Micro SD) slot.

    X- Window System is the core graphic-framework for Unix/Linux desktops. Sadly, it does not works very well with low-power mini-pc's like Raspberry Pi and therefore alternatives like Wayland are being developed. MicroXwin is a kernel-based X Windows implementation, which claims to be the smallest and fastest X implementation promising a faster, stable and has low-latency GUI on mini-pc's with the added advantage of being a unified Linux distribution that can run Android and Debian/Ubuntu applications simultaneously.

The DTH STB asked to format the device to enable recording, after which only 149MB was left visible/usable on Windows.

    John Seigenthaler, the legendary editor of Nashville’s daily newspaper, The Tennessean, died yesterday (Friday, July 11, 2014) in his Nashville home. In addition to recounting his remarkable career in journalism and public service, an event nine years ago that’s now referred to by early contributors to Wikipedia as “the Wikipedia Seigenthaler incident” earned a paragraph in Mr. Seigenthaler’s New York Time’s obituary.

    All week, anyone who follows the news has been carpet-bombed with punditry informing them that House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s defeat was because he supported immigration reform. Yet now, polls on both the right and left are revealing that immigration reform was far down on the list of issues that influenced the election’s outcome. Reporting on a poll conducted by Americans for a Conservative Direction, Politico says, “Only 22 percent of Virginia residents who voted for Cantor’s opponent, Dave Brat, cited immigration as the primary reason for their vote.

Google announced many welcomed Android improvements such as a battery saver mode and lock-screen notifications; something you'd previously need to use add-ons for as mentioned in Android is better. More uses of the Android operating system emerged: Android Wear, Android Auto and Android TV. A smartphone won't be the only thing that comes to…

    Last week Dropbox launched a new gallery app called Carousel. It's a focused app, only letting people view their photos stored on Dropbox1 and conveniently share them. There are a few interesting parts in the app but there is one piece I’d like to highlight: Swipe down to hide. This gesture doesn't delete your photo, it simply removes it from the gallery view. It's not a heavy action. There's no cognitive overhead, no thinking "wait, do I want this shot?" as there generally is when deleting items.

The thinking goes that if these online distractions are gone, you are more likely to focus on actual work. Alex MacCaw has created Motivation, a Chrome app that takes a slightly different approach. It replaces the new tab page of your Google Chrome with a real-time counter that displays your incrementing age.

    Tweetdeck, the popular app for Twitter, offers a very useful search feature that helps you discover the more popular (viral) tweets for any search term very easily. While setting up a search column inside Tweetdeck (see screenshot), you can define an “engagement level” so that tweets that have been retweeted or favorited at least ‘n’ times only show up in the search results. The engagement filter surfaces the best tweets and removes the noise from Twitter search results but the most surprising part is that Twitter has not made this filter available outside Tweetdeck.

You hop between any number of systems in a given day (Salesforce, Eloqua, Oracle, SQL Server, HubSpot, etc.) and the only way to take control of your world is to dump all that data into one place and try to make some sense of it.

    iFixit recently tore down Amazon’s supposedly wildly innovative phone. However, they actually had quite a hard time tearing it down. The only phone that beats the Amazon Fire Phone in terms of unrepairability is the HTC One M8. That phone scored a lowly 2 in terms of repairability, but even so, Samsung’s lowest scoring phone (The Galaxy S5) still managed a score of a 5. Repairability will determine how expensive repairs for your phone will cost and whether or not you can do them yourself.

This is primarily driven by the fact that LG finally knows how to not only make a great smartphone, but also how to market it and sell it to consumers, something they kind of lacked with previous phones like the LG Optimus G and the LG G2. Both the Optimus G and G2 were fantastic devices and pretty much owned the competition whenever they were…

    Currently we are fixing a really weird issue that only happens with non-administration users. When the user logs in and accesses one page, they are logged out of the system. The page finishes loading as if they were logged in, but once they try any other actions, such as clicking any module section menu (including refreshing the browser page) they are considered not logged in and presented with a login prompt. After looking it into for a while, we found that this always seems to happen when this module requests my custom ashx web call, which was killing dnn authentication cookies and logging…

  • When We Are Bold

    Alex Goldfayn
    21 Jul 2014 | 2:01 am
    Customers are trained to contact us when they need something, or when there is a problem. Nobody calls when we’re doing a great job for them, because that’s expected, and, in turn, taken for granted. So we get a significant influx of negative feedback, from a very small minority of our customers. The great majority of our customers are very happy with our work. We must seek out these positive thoughts, feelings and feedback from our customers. When we hear the wonderful ways our happy customers perceive us, we become bolder. And when we are bold, we are confident. We take more…
  • Killing Commodity Status

    Alex Goldfayn
    14 Jul 2014 | 4:14 am
    This morning I’m delivering a keynote to more than 1,000 people for the AmericanHort association — the largest horticultural association in the US. It’s titled Kill The Commodity, and the organizer selected the title. Most companies in competitive spaces are perceived as commodities — a printer is a printer, right? Doors are doors, construction is construction, and distributors are distributors. The problem is that when the market views you as a commodity, all you have to compete on is price, and life is very difficult. That’s why people in commodity businesses…
  • Awareness

    Alex Goldfayn
    7 Jul 2014 | 12:02 am
    Think about your typical customers: on average, what percentage of your entire range of products and services are they aware of? I ask every audience, client and prospect this question, because it is the single lowest hanging fruit for revenue. Answers range between 5% and 50%, but almost never higher. People cannot buy what they do not know about. We think about everything we offer, because it is our job. But our customers have their own jobs. And even if we’ve told them (repeatedly!) about the other products and services they can buy from us, they are probably not aware of them. How do we…
  • Help People, Even In Your Marketing

    Alex Goldfayn
    30 Jun 2014 | 12:23 am
    Just like your products and services, the best marketing helps people. It doesn’t pitch, propose, push, prod or promise. Rather, it demonstrates your outstanding value to your customers and prospects. It offers ideas, tools, techniques, approaches, and advice for improvement. If you sell products, help your market get the most out of them. If you sell services, teach people how to improve in your area of expertise. Think about your market: as a group, where are they falling short? What are they doing incorrectly that can be bettered? Right now, make a list of a half-dozen such areas.

    23 Jun 2014 | 9:54 am
    In an era of ever-expanding communications platforms and tools, the personal communication is going the way of the triceratops and the Palm Pilot.Think about it: how many personal, one-on-one emails and phone calls from do you receive in a day? For most of us, the number is dwarfed by group mailings, blasts, conference calls, and, yes, social media sharing. I like writing with fountain pens, so every week I send several hand-written personal notes. Nearly every recipient comments how nice — and rare! — it is. We’re supposed to be communicating more than ever, but…

    Gal Gadot sure does fill out that new Wonder Woman costume well. A photo of the Israeli beauty in the costume was revealed during San Diego’s Comic-Con over the weekend. Gadot, 29, who was born and grew up in Rosh HaAyin, Israel, will play the iconic role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and the reveal of the costume was the talk of the event. Surprisingly, this is the first time Wonder Woman, a.k.a Diana Prince, will make her big screen appearance, but Gadot has reportedly already signed on to play the super heroine in future sequels, including the upcoming Justice League film.

The idea behind the feature is that users will be able to show off aspects of a location, such as ambiance, lighting, noise level, etc. “Photos are a great way to add a visual element to your reviews, and Yelpers upload more than 23,000 of them from their mobile apps alone per day,” says Yelp mobile product manager Madhu Prabaker. “We also know visuals are important to Yelpers since they spend 2.5 times longer on business pages with images than on…

    Jennette McCurdy has finally opened up about the cancellation of Sam and Cat, and insists that she is no role model and has never tried to be one. Rumors that Nickelodeon’s hit show was destined to be cancelled have been surfacing for months now. However, the network just confirmed that the show was cancelled last week after only one season. Sam and Cat was originally scheduled to air only 20 episodes, but because it was such a big hit amongst the “tweens,” Nickelodeon ordered 20 more episodes for the first season. Things seemed to be going great until rumors surfaced that…

    Quentin Tarantino attended Comic Con in San Diego over the weekend, and the Django Unchained director spoke a bit about what’s coming up on his to-do list and the next stop for Django. In a rare move, Tarantino has partnered with Dynamite Entertainment to put together a sequel of sorts to the film about Django, a slave who is freed when he crosses paths with a bounty hunter with a deal to strike. However, the sequel won’t be captured on celluloid, but will be in comic form. The book will feature a crossover with Zorro, which may seem like an odd stretch to some but was immediately…

  • Contrary to what you may think; Air Travel is Safest in the current scenario

    Arpit Verma
    28 Jul 2014 | 10:38 am
    With the memories and wounds of MH 370 and MH 17 fresh in our mind, traveling by air has become a bit of a mission. Every time, post the incidents, I have landed safely, I have momentarily thanked the heavens that no mishap occurred. While the black cloud of safety looms large on air travels, the industry is bound to suffer from the incidents. But how much truth is there in all of this? Is air travel really that unsafe? Contrary to what you may think, air travel in 2014 has been safest that there has been. Yes, we have seen almost 3 fatal crashes and its barely been half an year and we have…

    It was a rather surprising decision when Nokia announced the Nokia X2 almost a month or so back. We had all expected the slow death of the Nokia X series of devices after a fairly muted response that it received from the customers clearly saying that Nokia has not done Android right. During the launch of the Nokia X2, which runs Nokia X Software Platform 2, Nokia had announced that the previously launched Nokia X series while, will not get all the updates, few of the features will be made available to enhance the performances in the form of Platform 1.2 Update.

The device with the rotatable camera lens device has not really been the best seller when it comes to the lineup that Gionee has, but irrespective of that, the device follows the likes of S5.5 and Ctrl V5 to receive the update. However, there has been no official word about the update to Elife E7, which is kind of disappointing. The update to the Elife E7 Mini is not OTA unlike the update…

Little more than a year after its launch, you’d be hard pressed to find an iPad or iPhone enthusiast who has not heard about xPrintServer. While this product line – and the market opportunity for networked mobile printing– is in many ways still in its infancy, xPrintServer is well positioned to capitalize on the need for a cost-effective and easy to deploy networked…

During Apple’s quarterly earnings call, which commenced last Tuesday, the company’s CEO Tim Cook announced that Apple has acquired a total of 5 companies in a time period of 4 months and Beats Audio is not one of them; two of those five companies are: LuxVue and Spotsetter. The most recent addition to the list of companies acquired by Apple…

    One of the leading manufacturers of mechanical hard drives Seagate after announcing that it will start shipping out 8TB and 10TB hard drives in the next 12 months has started to work faster to release the storage peripherals well before the due dates. Unveiling of Seagate’s 6TB hard drive in a 3.5-inch form factor showed that the company was starting to fill its hard drives with helium. This allowed Seagate to exponentially raising the capacity of its 3.5-inch hard drives by increasing the area density of the disks present in the rectangular housing.

  • Make Your Store and CRM System Be Friends, Part II

    28 Jul 2014 | 12:12 pm
    Recently, in 5 Ways to Connect Your Online Store to the Rest of The Business, I made the bold claim that your customer service reps could know which products a client bought from your online store right when they pull up an account in their customer relationship management (CRM) system (which might be SugarCRM,, or one of many others). Even more recently, in Make Your Store and CRM System Be Friends, Part I, we followed the story a little further and witnessed the sad tale of the lonely store and CRM system that really should get to know each other better.  This…
  • Using Bundler with Susy

    24 Jul 2014 | 8:14 am
    I recently started a project with Susy to get away from bloated frameworks. It’s always fun for me to try something new and find out there may be a better way to accomplish a task. I started my journey by looking on the Susy website under “Documentation” for information on how to get started. I started the project with Compass since that is something I am familiar with from using other Frameworks. Then, I installed the latest version of Susy and Compass: gem install susy gem install compass --pre What is important here is that you get the latest alpha version of Compass or…
  • Make Your Store and CRM System Be Friends, Part I

    22 Jul 2014 | 8:44 am
    Your online store and your customer relationship management system would probably consider themselves acquaintances. They nod and say “hi” at parties, but are definitely not close friends.  It’s really too bad, they have so much in common and would have a lot to talk about.  They both know so much about your company’s customers, orders, products and shipments, but one only hears about what the other knows through hearsay (sometimes called “data entry” in the business world). This article will begin to tell a story of building bonds of friendship between…
  • IE Testing with Mac OS X

    18 Jul 2014 | 6:48 am
    Microsoft is trying to give us ways to make things work, even though it’s still painful. When we moved our office from Uniontown to Pittsburgh, we left behind a handful of 5-10 year old PCs that were wasting space in our office, aside from testing our projects in Internet Explorer. We should have a Linux install party at The Beauty Shoppe and donate those machines, stripping the XP serial numbers/labels off the top (so not to fuel the never ending cycle of people not upgrading their computers)! This worked fine for us, but sooping up our Mac’s with more RAM or upgrading allowed…

    18 Jul 2014 | 6:34 am
    I recently ran into a problem while trying to login to a client’s Drupal 7 website: the password I had was incorrect, and the email address for the site’s past maintainer was no longer valid. I needed to login to this site to make some updates, but how could I login without the correct login credentials? If you find yourself having this same problem, and you have access to cPanel/FTP and the database, you’ll be able to get out of this situation in under 5 minutes. You won’t be able to dig up the current password, but you’ll be able to reset it with these simple…

  • Microsoft throws down gauntlet on personal assistants by pitting Cortana against Siri

    Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla
    28 Jul 2014 | 10:22 am
    While Apple put the mobile personal assistant in the mainstream four years ago with Siri, the competition is now gunning for the top spot. Microsoft, whose Cortana personal assistant is powered by Bing, ships with Windows Phone 8.1 and apparently has a wider breadth of contextual search features. Microsoft's resorting to 'comparison' ads by showcasing features available to Cortana that Siri doesn't have or can't do. What's weird is that we have an entry level Lumia being pitted against a more expensive iPhone 5s. Should be interesting to see where all this is headed once iOS 8 is released and…

    Google wants you to be a bit more adventurous the next time you travel or you’re out about town. Google Maps is getting an “Explore” button that shows up at the bottom right corner of the app (perhaps beside the location/compass button). This feature will show you new places to check out in the area. Aside from your location, it also takes the time of day in consideration when recommending places to you (so you won’t get a new bar’s location in the middle of the day). Explore can also be used when you’re planning a trip to another city or country to find…

  • Microsoft’s New CEO Needs An Editor

    Jean-Louis Gassée
    13 Jul 2014 | 9:42 am
      Satya Nadella’s latest message to the troops – and to the world – is disquieting. It lacks focus, specifics, and, if not soon sharpened, his words will worry employees, developers, customers, and even shareholders. As I puzzled over the public email Microsoft’s new CEO sent to his troops, Nicolas Boileau’s immortal dictum came to mind: Whatever is well conceived is clearly said, And the words to say it flow with ease. Clarity and ease are sorely missing from Satya Nadella’s 3,100 plodding words, which were supposed to paint a clear, motivating future for 127,000…

      By the end of 2014, many news media will collect around 50% of their page views via mobile devices. Here are trends to remember before devising a mobile strategy. (First of a two-part series.) In the news business, mobile investments are on the rise. That’s the pragmatic response to a major trend: Users shift from web to mobile. Already, all major media outlets are bracing for a momentous threshold: 50% of their viewership coming from mobile devices (smartphones and tablets). Unfortunately, the revenue stream is not likely to follow anytime soon: making users pay for mobile…
  • The Network Is the Computer: Google Tries Again

    Jean-Louis Gassée
    6 Jul 2014 | 1:29 pm
      All you need is a dumb device attached to a smart network. It’s an old idea that refuses to die despite repeated failures. Now it’s Google’s turn. In the late 1980s, Sun Microsystems used a simple, potent war cry to promote its servers: The Network Is The Computer. Entrust all of your business intelligence, computing power, and storage to Sun’s networked SPARC systems and you can replace your expensive workstation with a dumb, low cost machine. PCs are doomed. Nothing of the sort happened, of course. Sun’s venture was disrupted by inexpensive servers assembled from the PC…
  • Google might not be a monopoly, after all

      Despite its dominance, Google doesn’t fit the definition of a monopoly. Still, the Search giant’s growing disconnect from society could lead to serious missteps and, over time, to a weakened position.  In last week’s column, I opined about the Open Internet Project’s anti-trust lawsuit against Google. Reactions showed divided views of the search engine’s position. Granted, Google is an extremely aggressive company, obsessed with growth, scalability, optimization — and also with its own vulnerability. But is it really a monopoly in the traditional and historical…

    Love your Mac, but not the dock? Replace it with something smaller. StatusDuck ($15, free trial) lets you manage your open applications completely from the menubar. The dock is an iconic Mac feature – one many Windows users attempt to copy – but that doesn’t mean every Mac user loves it. It takes up a lot of space, unless it’s hidden; if you hide it, you can’t see at a glance which applications are currently open. If you’d like another option, and don’t mind adding more icons to your menubar, check out StatusDuck. Is your menubar so cluttered you can’t even...Read the…

    You open the door and step into an empty room. Within moments, you find yourself immersed in a far away world – in a jungle on the other side of the world, or on another planet. This Star Trek “holodeck” fantasy may sound far fetched, but it’s getting much closer to reality than you may think. With the booming popularity of the Oculus Rift, and virtual reality technology in general, it makes sense that the long-term vision of VR developers would be the sort of complete and total immersive environment made possible by the holodeck concept.

    I’ve been a designer for almost my entire life, dating back to 28 years ago this coming weekend, when I made my first logo in a kitchen in eastern Ohio. For the better part of my career, I wrestled with one crippling fear – that one day, I would run out of ideas. Afraid that the well would run dry, and I would no longer be able to rise to the challenge of creating new stuff. Over recent years, I’ve decided to confront this fear instead of living with it. What I’ve come to realize is as liberating as the act of creating itself. This year, legendary designer Massimo Vignelli passed away…

The structure — a layer of graphite flakes and an underlying carbon foam — is a porous, insulating material structure that floats on water. When sunlight hits the structure’s surface, it creates a hotspot in the graphite, drawing water up through the material’s pores, where it evaporates as steam. The brighter the light, the more steam is more

    Mobile apps are radically changing the way doctors and patients interact and approach healthcare. Over the last few years, several medical mobile applications were developed that offer quick access to evidence-based medical research from mobile devices. These apps are making it possible for physicians as well as patients to view x-rays, review clinical notes, track health progress and access information regarding any medical condition through major mobile platforms such as iPhone, Android, Blackberry, and Windows.

    In the United States, under the new healthcare law about 8 million people have signed up for private health plans via health insurance exchanges. However, as per the latest reports from federal officials the eligibility of about 2 million people is still in question. The Obama administration is reaching out to hundreds of thousands of new Obamacare enrollees receiving subsidies to resolve serious questions about their eligibility, as many consumer advocates have expressed their concerns that many of them will be required to repay some or all of the subsidies.  The new step was undertaken…

    Healthcare providers, insurance payers and vendors aren’t the only entities that are affected by the unexpected ICD-10 delay of more than a year. Delay in implementing this coding system is detrimental also for students pursuing health information management degrees and trying to prepare for their careers. On March 31, the U.S. senate passed the “Doc Fix” bill that approved H.R. 4302, the legislation which delays the ICD-10 implementation deadline by one year to October 1, 2015. Students who have been preparing for the tenth version of codes now find themselves unable to…

    A retrospective review of the medical records of 150 cardiac patients who had deactivated their implanted electronic cardiac devices (by request) revealed that both physicians and patients are not planning ahead or including their aspirations regarding the deactivation of devices in their advance directives. This is in spite of the fact that except one, all the patients analyzed had quite poor or terminal prognosis at the time the device was deactivated. The investigation also showed that surrogates rather than the patients themselves had made half of all deactivation requests, and the…

Quick answer is NO. (Fastest) Windows with an SSD Drive: Don’t Defrag. Windows 7, 8, or Vista: It’s automatic, don’t bother. (check to make sure the schedule is running) Windows XP: You should upgrade. Also, you should setup defrag on a schedule. Read the rest of the story at

Are you simply finding that the Apple devices are somehow just becoming more and more popular with not only the executives but also the next layers in the business? Once these devices are seen within the enterprise, it is very unlikely that the numbers will dwindle since users tend to share experiences of IT with each other and as a result the wow / cool factor of a MacBook Air and its relative simplicity of use (in the eye of the beholder) will…

    Being adept in content distribution for SCCM, we at 1E are often asked about Nomad and it’s consummate integration with SCCM; and that without the need of any additional server infrastructure. Yes! It is a serverless solution and works without any padding Admin consoles and hence lesser administration. The installers are intelligent and perceptive, and integrate with SCCM without any human intervention. Once the Nomad installers for SCCM integration are installed, Nomad can easily be enabled and configured from within the SCCM console itself. Nomad can be set as a download provider via…

    Clive Thompson

    I recently picked up 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die. I couldn't resist the title, which so neatly refracts the gibbering cultural anxieties of lists like "1000 novels everyone must read". You see this sort of highbrow listicle often in the realms of literary fiction, movies, possibly poetry. It's classic canon panic, and I say that with a degree of charity and warmth; I actually think arguing heatedly and even snobbishly about what works of art are important and mindbending can be a lot of fun, and occasionally useful to the parties involved. But there's something hilarious and…

    That's one of the opening pages of Conjectures on Original Composition, a book about creative genius published by the English poet Edward Young in 1759. It's considered one of the first big essays to tout the idea that "originals" -- writers of deep originality -- are more important and awesome than derivative folks. I heard about Conjectures while reading a different essay this evening, and since I'm sort of obsessed with tracking the rise of our modern (and disastrous) conceit that originality is something that just kind of wells up from inside you I immediately dialed up Conjectures on…

    Yesterday I saw a picture on Boing Boing: A "behind the scenes" shot of how they made the iconic opening "crawl" text for The Empire Strikes Back. I'd always assumed, naively, that the crawl was done with computer graphics, but no: It was a steampunk affair, with the text printed on a piece of glass and filmed at a steep angle by a camera. But what really struck me was the quote from George Lucas about the formal properties of a crawl: "The crawl is such a hard thing because you have to be careful that you're not using too many words that people don't understand," Lucas has said.

    The Rise of Cloud-based APM Solutions In my last blog, I called today’s enterprise application landscape “a dog’s breakfast”1 as far as complexity and heterogeneity are concerned. A growing number of APM vendors would likely agree. Regardless of whether you are on the vendor or the consumer side, application management— as opposed to simple application monitoring— is an inherently difficult task. Perhaps for this reason, enterprise-grade Application Performance Management solutions—those capable of monitoring, correlating and triaging integrated, distributed applications while…

    John Myers
    14 Jul 2014 | 8:39 am
    Waaay back in the day (say 2002), organizations would ask themselves: “If our customer and prospect (potential customer) information is our most valuable asset, why would we EVER trust it with a 3rd party who would put it with the customer information from other companies?” Today, organizations do not hesitate to start their sales endeavors with the swipe of a credit card and the creation of a account. In fact, the concept of X-as-as-service has grown to have as many definitions as the concept of cloud computing itself. There are infrastructure-as-a-services (IaaS) that…

    Did you ever hear the term “a dog’s breakfast”?

    If you are an IT manager, have you ever found yourself stuck in the uncomfortable position of having to choose which jobs are given priority access to essential computing resources?

But as most IT managers will tell you, this responsibility is typically more of a curse than a blessing. A recent blog by IBM Tiger Team member, Xavier Giannakopoulos, titled “You are promoted! Priority lanes in workload…

    Have you ever heard of the business model canvas? If so, then you know that it is basically a board of basic elements which need to be evaluated in the process of creating a product and the business around it. Have you ever wondered if such a model could be created for a software design process? I did and here are my thoughts on it. Obviously a detailed implementation cannot be touched by such a “bird’s eye architecture-cheat-sheet” but I think a general description with some design tips can be achieved.

Y'all recycle so much old material from briefs and other documents, it puts Ed Begley, Jr. to shame.

  • Buying in Facebook and Twitter: A New Data Generator

    Gram Bowsher
    22 Jul 2014 | 10:09 am
    Social media seems to be impacting nearly every aspect of marketing. It allows brands to interact with consumers in a digital space. Feedback and customer service happen in real time. Now, it seems social media may be simplifying the ecommerce channel, giving consumers the ability to make purchases directly in the ads and posts for products they see in their feeds. Both Facebook and Twitter have now begun testing “buy now” buttons to their sites and apps. In both instances, consumers have the ability to click a “buy” button within an ad (which can be prompted to appear based on a…

    When searching the term “Market Research” on Wikipedia, the definition is followed by the suggestion that market research “is a very important component of business strategy.”  We agree!  And it’s only going to become a more critical component as we enter the “hyper-creation” phase of our post-great recession economy.

    9 Jul 2014 | 8:50 am
    I can hear some of you scoffing now: “Yeah, right, because the world needed yet another Doritos product.” But as people in the business of innovation, we have to admit that the Doritos team does a great job of continually filling their innovation pipeline, leading to plenty successful new (and novel!) product launches. They’ve got to be doing something right, as according to Mintel they’re the leading tortilla chip brand in the US.PepsiCo has done it yet again. And by “it”, I mean stretching the Doritos brand well past chips – this time landing under a heating lamp at 7-Eleven.

    Yo: A two letter word with ambiguous origins and typically inconsequential meaning. Or is it not that simple? One of the newest trends in social media and mobile apps has been the rise of the app named after such a seemingly innocuous term. Giving users only the ability to send the word “Yo” to each other, the app has already received $1.2 million in investment and has risen to the number one in the iOS app store. The fast rise of Yo was quickly followed by an influx of hack attempts, and when a group of college students hacked into Yo’s data and were able to attain user information,…

    In an interview about his hit song Instant Karma! (We All Shine On), John Lennon was quoted as saying “the idea of instant karma was like the idea of instant coffee: presenting something in a new form.” I’m not sure what the instant coffee category was like in 1970 (it’s surprisingly difficult to dig up 44-year-old category data), but it seems that history has a way of repeating itself. Lately instant coffee seems to be in need of a shakeup, and many manufacturers are throwing their hats in the ring. According to Mintel, consumption of instant coffee is on the decline in the US.

    Recently, Google made a major change in the way it rewarded authorship. Previously, author portraits were displayed next to any search results tied to a Google+ account. Google took away these portraits with no warning, leaving only a small tagline with the author’s name. While authors may not be pleased, marketers should be. And poof!

    We’ve all heard the phrase “content is king.” The past several years have seen an accelerating trend where search engines reward high-quality, valuable content. That trend definitely won’t reverse anytime soon, but it is taking an interesting twist: If Google’s newest changes are any clue, it’s not the content that’s king but the content creators. And just because your site releases great content doesn’t make you a content creator. It’s the individual authors that Google is increasingly shining the spotlight on, not the companies or entities that publish their work. That…

  • Spain Just Passed An Insane Law Taxing Google For Linking To News (GOOG)

    Last week, Spain passed a law that taxes any site that links to articles published by members of Spain's newspaper association with descriptions of their work. The law has been nicknamed the "Google Tax" because it specifically targets Google News, as well as other news aggregation systems.  This sounds crazy: Google News, which lists major headlines on a given topic with a line from each piece, is great for publishers because it pushes tons of readers onto their websites.  As Julio Alonso points out on Medium, this law follows the precedent of one passed in Germany.

  • It’s On Display

    25 Jun 2014 | 2:11 pm
    If you are looking for a unique and beautiful display for your business or for your home, then consider LCD displays. These operate with brilliant lights that don’t go out as quickly as other bulbs. You can choose a display that is already made, or you can use a picture that you create in order to make the display stand out and blend with your business or decorations in your home. These displays are often clearer for stores. This is an advantage for customers who might not be able to see well or to advertise sales and new products.

  • SysTools Export Notes Software Review

    4 Jun 2014 | 10:13 am
    Ideally, Lotus Notes is a suite that is composed of benefits like emailing, calendaring, database management, Web Server, programming etc. So, giving blame to the application that it is a costly email-client would be an injustice. Organizations that are using Notes® aim fully for the purpose of emailing; surely a large section of finances are going in vain. For turning losses due to mail application, the idea of migrating to MS Outlook can be adopted that is as capable as Notes® when it comes to serving sheer emailing experience. In the process of moving to another email application and…

    Even though the web is a global network, many businesses are happy to create an English-language site and leave it at that. In some cases, that’s fine. The burden of translation can be quite high, and if the market a site is addressing is fairly localized, then the ROI of internationalizing isn’t worth the effort. […]

    21 Jul 2014 | 5:36 pm
    When was the last time we heard something new or exciting from BlackBerry? Apart from the recent appointment of Marty Beard as COO, not much else. And this quick rundown by Ingrid Lunden over at TechCrunch of where BlackBerry stands right now isn’t all sunshine and rainbows: BlackBerry’s share price dropped by more than 10% the day after Apple and IBM announced their news. The effect was not helped by the general decline that BlackBerry has seen over the last couple of years as its market share in smartphones as tumbled while Android devices and the iPhone continue to rise.

One of my fellow passengers on the commute from Tenement in C-5 to the MRT/LRT station in Pasay City along the East Service road was an old man and a senior citizen. The driver of the jeep was a decade younger than him, I think. For the purposes of this post, I’d refer to the passenger as ‘Manong senior citizen‘ and the driver as ‘Manong Drayber‘. Yes, I need to work on better references. It all started when…

It’s like pardoning the Marcoses of all their crimes against the Filipino people, letting them keep their stolen wealth and even proclaiming them as the first Royal family of the Philippines. It’s like telling all the farmers to give up their rightful claims on Hacienda Luisita and adorn the Cojuancos for their benevolence. It’s like telling Editha Burgos that she should trust the AFP are telling the truth and would help them find her still missing son Jonas Burgos. It’s like telling the victims of human rights abuses, some of which…

A list of features of Windows Phone 8.1 can be found here, one of the highlights of which is Cortana – Microsoft’s version of a digital personal assistant like Google Now for Android and Siri for iOS.

    The last time there was a major slow down of internet speed in the country was back in December of 2006 when an earthquake that struck off the coast of Taiwan damaged major undersea cables that provide connectivity to the country. With incidents like these, even the biggest ISPs like PLDT and Globe were at the mercy of international groups that maintain the undersea cable connections’ ability to repair the damage. The recent damage hit the undersea cables lying in areas between Taiwan and Japan, and China and Korea. Latest reports say that repairs are expected to be completed by around…

  • CIO-CMO Relationship: Plagued By Digital Pretenders

    InformationWeek Blog

    Digital strategies that focus only on customer engagement are shallow. But to go deeper, CIOs and CMOs must be partners. For many companies these days, “digital” is almost exclusively about customer engagement, the domain of the CMO. However, the CIO is crucial in linking business processes and enterprise information to the digital channels that achieve the always-on state that customers and employees demand. The strength of the CIO-CMO relationship has never been more vital to a company’s success, yet the confusion surrounding these roles in the digital enterprise has never…

    We all know the feeling. You apply for a job, and wait, and wait...and wait some more. You’re wondering if the company received your application, if you’re in the running for the job or just downright out for the count. No one likes to be in limbo during the hiring process. It’s often a full-time job looking for a job, so not knowing where you stand is just straight up frustrating.

Most people spend at least a quarter of their time at work every week. And that’s exactly why it’s so important to embrace what makes your company special and let your culture shine. We all know referrals are one the best recruitment avenues, and nothing says “come join our team” like a team member raving about why he or she loves working there. Last week I talked about getting…

It is sad that the cost saving “dream” presented during all those sales pitches often become a “nightmare” of spiraling costs and management headaches.  If you go into your outsourcing…

    Bill Wood
    7 May 2014 | 2:21 pm
    Outsourcing Motives One of the hot trends in IT is outsourcing.  The allure of smooth sailing, fewer headaches, and lower cost generally capture senior leadership’s attention.  The sales pitches about all of the success stories are often compelling.  But just like calm (but murky) waters on a mild day hide the rocks under the surface so do many of the outsourcing vendor claims. With some background understanding (and a lot of due diligence) you can avoid most of those rocks and navigate these waters. It does take work, work that your outsourcing vendor will never tell you. Any…

    Bill Wood
    7 May 2014 | 2:19 pm
    Outsourcing Tactics & Strategy In an outsourcing arrangement you have one of two approaches: work up front to reduce potential disputes or be prepared to deal with the fallout. The less aggressive you are with your outsourcing management the more profitable you are to the outsourcing company. Does fallout mean you will be in court? Sometimes yes, but sometimes it means re-negotiating a contract or, worse still, skyrocketing costs which can exceed the original costs that were replaced. Outsourcing Relationship or Arrangement The sales personnel for outsourcing will push the idea of…

    It’s good to refrain from wasting energy, but it’s even better to procure energy from items that you otherwise would waste.That’s the thinking behind the latest announcement from Sainsbury’s, the second largest chain of supermarkets in the United Kingdom. The chain’s Cannock location will soon be powered solely by the company’s own food waste. Waste management and recycling firm Biffa has partnered with the store to use its advanced anaerobic digestion (AD) facilities and a power link that allows the Cannock store to use the waste generated from Sainsbury’s other…

This Star Trek “holodeck” fantasy may sound far fetched, but it’s getting much closer to reality than you may think.

  • Logitech brings inexpensive H570e USB headset to the enterprise

    28 Jul 2014 | 9:49 am
    When I go to the grocery store, nothing drives me crazier than people using the speakerphone function of their phone to talk with their partner. When I hear "honey, should I buy 1% or 2% milk?" and then listen to the discussion, it makes me nuts. It's like, I just want to throw their phone into the live lobster tank. Does no one have a sense of privacy and consideration anymore? This nonsense also happens in the workplace. It is not uncommon for an employee to run a video chat or web-based conference call through their speakers. They then shout at their computer, so the cheap mic picks up…

  • Convert web pages to PDF with wkhtmltopdf

    Mike Williams
    28 Jul 2014 | 9:34 am
    It can often be useful to keep a local copy of a web page, and your browser’s "Save Page As" option is a good place to start. But typically this saves an HTML file and a separate folder with its resources, or an archive format like MHT, not so convenient if you’d like to share the document with others. Wkhtmltopdf is an open source tool which quickly converts HTML to PDF, ready for viewing just about anywhere. It’s written for the command line, but don’t let that put you off -- you’ll be using it productively in seconds. Saving a remote web page to PDF, for instance, is as simple as…
  • SlimClip -- a minimal iPhone case with clip-on functionality [Review]

    Wayne Williams
    28 Jul 2014 | 7:24 am
    When I go for runs, my iPhone always comes with me, providing music and motivation through apps like Zombies, Run! Usually I just jam the device in my pocket, but that's not always possible, or practical. There are other ways to carry your phone with you, including using armbands, but SlimClip offers an alternative option. The plastic case has a thin flap on the back. You lift this up to slide the iPhone into the enclosure, and the flap doubles as a clip so you can attach the device to your waistband. It's a simple, but very clever idea that works well. I've been protecting my phone with the…

  • Random Things I Learned Building Software

    I remember the moment I realized I wanted to spend the rest of my career building software. I was at my first job post-college, in my early twenties, and in the office at 9 PM writing code. The company I had joined was on the verge of spiraling out of control, I was working yet another 70+ hour week, and my team was under intense pressure for what seemed like an impossible deadline. But all I could remember thinking is: "I can't believe I'm getting paid to do this job!" In over 20 years, that passion for building software has never left me. I've performed almost every role in a software…

  • AWS Revenue Slip?

    Joe Kinsella
    25 Jul 2014 | 4:46 am
    I recently noticed several bloggers announcing a dramatic slip in the Amazon cloud business based on a drop in revenue of the infamous Other category. While deducing AWS revenue from changes to the Other category is an inexact science, it is the best we have until Amazon choose to break out AWS as a line of business in their SEC filings. It's true the torrid end of 2013 growth of the Other catgeory ($960M in Q3 to $1170M in Q4) flattened in Q1 2014 (+3% to $1204M), before declining in Q2 (-3% to 1168M). But before everyone makes sweeping generalizations of what this means to Amazon's cloud…

    The other night while on the Cape with family, we got to telling travel stories. I've collected a fair number of travel stories over the years - including my recent experience being towed down a busy sidewalk in downtown Seattle. But this is one I had almost forgotten. A few years ago I was traveling to a customer site in Minnesota. My flight arrived late and I dragged myself to the rental car agency hoping to get a car as quickly as possible. But due to the late hour, there was a limited availability of cars, and so the agency decided to upgrade me to a luxury car. I forget the exact model,…
  • The Agility Volume Knob

    I like to think I’m an Agile Pragmatist in a world of Agile Fundamentalists. I believe there is no single framework / process that is a panacea to the various issues within a software development organization, and instead processes must be adapted to fit the specific needs of a business, its customers, product, team and code base. For me defining the right agile process is like the test an eye doctor gives you (“is this better or worse? is this better or worse?”). Rather than prescriptive adherence to a framework, I like to borrow freely from the rich mulch pile of software development…
