    Take me to your re-charging unit Like many others I was constantly checking the BBC livefeed and ESA reports yesterday as Philae landed. My interest is twofold (well threefold, but we will get to that): - Firstly, exploration of space is always fascinating and who knows what we will learn from this (It's quite scary the number of people arguing this is a a waste of money!) - Secondly, it's another episode in the application of the advances in modern Robotics - and for a good, not a dystopian, outcome. The potential of robotics is well showcased here - the downside (surveillance by Philae's…

    Looking for a way to increase your Internet speed without upgrading your ISP Internet plan? Well, Internet speed can depend on a several factors, both internal to the network and external.

    iOS, Android, Sailfish? Jolla’s operating system looks like a major contender in the mobile market now that the Jolla Tablet, dubbed “the world’s first crowdsourced tablet,” has exceeded $1million of crowdfunding in just two days on Indiegogo.

Clearly, there’s a huge public appetite for this independently-produced, privacy-conscious product. Jolla’s Sailfish OS 2.0 is designed to be open-source and collaborative, having grown out of…

    3 Nov 2014 | 12:34 pm
    Back in the summer of 1997, I got my one and only assignment for a magazine called The Web, back when it seemed like it made sense to publish reviews and profiles relating to websites on dead trees. It turned out to be one of the most entertaining projects I ever worked on: I profiled Tom and Ray Magliozzi, better known as Click and Clack of public radio’s Car Talk. When I saw the sad news today that Tom had passed away at 77, the memories came flooding back. I made contact with the Car Talk team by getting the phone number of their production company. In 1997, you did that by calling…

    Jim Frederick, the first editor I had during my time as a tech writer for TIME, died unexpectedly on Thursday night. He was only 42, and I’m still in shock. The loss would be incalculable no matter what the circumstances, but it feels especially jarring and surreal given the bright future Jim was building for himself. Along with his wife Charlotte, he’d just switched coasts from New York to San Francisco in order to start a media consultancy. (I got the LinkedIn notification formally announcing the news just yesterday morning.) Jim’s most obvious legacy will be his work as a…

    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,…

Yet some areas of the country never did develop the taste for alcohol that others did, but rather than rely on anecdotal evidence, the staff at Thrillest tapped the data-driven brain power of Movoto's "Chief Armchair Economist," Chris Kolmer, to find out which states were filled to the brim with booze.

In the 1990s, the Apple Newton, a tablet and a “personal digital assistant,” was considered a marvel by the specs. A single-surface networked personal computer, it came with an impressive screen and plenty of memory. But consumers rejected it.

  • Google's Project Loon Can Now Launch Up To 20 Balloons Per Day, Fly 10x Longer

    timothy
    22 Nov 2014 | 3:08 am
    An anonymous reader writes Google [Thursday] shared an update from Project Loon, the company's initiative to bring high-speed Internet access to remote areas of the world via hot air balloons. Google says it now has the ability to launch up to 20 of these balloons per day. This is in part possible because the company has improved its autofill equipment to a point where it can fill a balloon in under five minutes. This is a major achievement, given that Google says filling a Project Loon balloon with enough air so that it is ready for flight is the equivalent of inflating 7,000 party…

Invariably, the conflict between pure online retailers like Amazon and Flipkart and brick and mortar stores was bound to emerge. Unfortunately for Google's Android One, it has been on the receiving end of this friction. Leading brick and mortar retailers in India have refused to sell Android One handsets ever since the US company chose to launch its products exclusively online.

    Let’s start with some comments on “Post PC.” If we take a step back and look at the global computing landscape, we realize two things. First, there is a “PC plus” market (people who use a PC and other devices like tablets and smartphones together) and a non-PC market where the only computer people use are smartphones. Understanding the PC plus segment is how I predicted 2014 would see some rebound of the PC market. Microsoft says 1.5 billion people use Windows every day. This does not mean there are 1.5 billion unique PC owners though. That number is much lower.

    French and Italian archaeologists digging out a pottery workshop in Pompeii have brought to light 10 raw clay vases, revealing a frozen-in-time picture of the exact moment panicked potters realized they were facing an impending catastrophe. The vases were found sealed under a layer of ash and pumice from Mount Vesuvius' devastating eruption of 79 A.D. and it appears they were just ready to be fired.

  • Don't try this at home: 1930s daredevils attached rockets to bicycles

    Chris Wild
    22 Nov 2014 | 1:48 am
    Rocket propulsion was all the rage in pre-war Germany. People attached rockets, with varying degree of success and danger, to skates (both roller and ice), cars, boats and bicycles. In 1931, German engineer Herr Richter added 12 rockets to his bicycle to create his "Raketenrad." The white box on the frame contained the battery used to ignite the rockets, all solid fuel Richter tested it on the Avus racetrack in Berlin. When he reached a speed of 55 mph, he lost control and was thrown off as the rockets exploded. He was not seriously injured. The 1930s also saw the first rocket bicycle race,…

  • EU Parliament Wants To Break Up Google... Because It's Big & American Or Something

    Mike Masnick
    21 Nov 2014 | 7:39 pm
    On Friday, the Financial Times broke the story that the European Parliament is going to call for breaking up Google. Of course, the European Parliament can't actually do that, but it appears designed to put pressure on the EU Commission, which has been talking about antitrust actions against Google for quite some time. While it had looked like there was a settlement earlier this year, those plans more or less appeared to fall apart. Just recently, we wrote about efforts to force Google to change some of its search results in Europe -- and noted how problematic it gets when governments start…

    The CIA and Senate have found more to fight about. With the "Torture Report" mostly in the hands of the White House at this point, the two are now battling over the CIA's planned alterations to its email retention policies. Key senators are pushing back against a CIA plan to destroy older emails of “non-senior” agency officials. The heads of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday sent a letter opposing the proposal, under which only the highest ranking CIA workers would have their email correspondence permanently saved. The plan “could allow the destruction of…

    There are some bizarre legal definitions for common foods. For example, we've seen that the definition of a sandwich was under dispute because a burrito place was encroaching on a sandwich shop in a shopping mall food court. That case decided that a burrito was not a sandwich, but food experts don't all agree on that point. Here are a few other cases of defining some foods legally and not with your gut. Unilever is suing a vegan "mayo" company because it doesn't use eggs in its product. The startup Hampton Creek may be benefiting from some publicity here, and its "Just Mayo" mayonnaise-like…
  • Bludgeoned And Bleeding, Aereo Finally Files For Bankruptcy

    For a moment there, streaming video operator Aereo put on a brave face that it could continue despite last June's Supreme Court ruling against the company. While some interpretations of that ruling seemed to suggest that Aereo could be considered a cable company if it was willing to pay retransmission fees and effectively function as a delayed DVR service, those dreams were dashed in an October ruling that granted a pretty broad injunction by broadcasters. Judge Alison Nathan effectively stated at the time that Aereo should go ahead and die as the Supreme Court intended, and stop with all the…

Clearly, if this stands, it will have big implications for cloud computing -- and a massive negative impact on US businesses trying to sell such services around the world. For that reason, Microsoft has been fighting back in the courts, so far unsuccessfully.

    17 Nov 2014 | 9:40 pm
    After tackling the XTERRA Point Mugu 18K Trail Race in October, I decided to do the Santa to the Sea Half Marathon in December next. But that left me with two months without races and I got impatient. I was looking through my timeline on the Strava site when I saw that tri-athlete Anthony Grey was in his last weeks of training for the Surfer’s Point Full Marathon. After that I signed up for the half marathon or the race to be held on Nov. 16, 2014. One of the features of the race is that when you cross the finish line you get a nice beer and some real tacos. Who can say no to tacos?

    After the last two weeks of abnormally hot weather on the Central Coast, things finally cooled down and my running heated up some at the 2014 XTERRA Point Mugu 18K trail race. The race took place today, October 12, 2014, at Point Mugu State Park in Malibu, just a few miles south of Oxnard. It’s been a year and a half since I first started my fitness journey and about a year since running became a big part of that trek. My first trail race was the XTERRA Malibu Creek 22K which was extremely challenging, so much so that I immediately signed up for the Bulldog 25K which pretty…

    I completed the Bulldog 25K trail race this past weekend, August 23 2014. This was my longest and only second trail race. After doing the XTERRA Malibu Creek Challenge 22K race in May, I had started eyeing the Bulldog race and immediately started training for it. I took a bit of circuitous route though, doing a series of 5K races including the Father’s Day 5K race and three of the fun “Boogie Nights” 5K races that were held on Wednesday afternoons near Surfer’s Point in Ventura. The other element that I added was some comprehensive trail running. Between May and August…

    After finishing the XTERRA Malibu Creek 22K race in May, I took some time to pick my next challenge. I finally decided on running my first 5K race, the inaugural Father’s Day 5K 10K Race in Ventura on June 15. This race had a couple of appealing aspects – it had a beach cruiser giveaway and the course happens to be on one of my favorite training routes. I also liked the idea of doing a 5K run to determine my “5K pace” which is helpful for planning workouts. For example, if I’m doing a certain type of interval run I can determine the pace based on an actual 5K…

The good news was that it wasn’t as hot as it had been all week (high 90’s and low 100’s) but it was still plenty hot in the high 80’s. This was my first of hopefully many trail races and it was a bit of a beast. I decided to do the race about three weeks ago and only had one chance to check out part of the course. I blogged about that experience in my pre-race report. Having never tried to tackle the infamous Bulldog Road portion of the course before, I tried to figure out how tough it…

However while video capture is one thing, video playback is a different thing, and unfortunately as it stands the new iPhones can’t watch 4K videos, at least not by default.Now before you go ahead and lambast Apple and their hardware, apparently it seems that hardware isn’t the issue here, but rather Apple has not allowed that feature on their…

    I’ve developed a trick or two when it comes to the annual Black Friday shopping season, one of which is zeroing in on what I want to buy before I embark on that infamous night of craziness. When the festivities erupt on that Thanksgiving night, I want to be ready (and NOT forced to come up with ideas in the midst of volatile hordes of shoppers). But there are certain loved ones who happen to be particularly difficult to buy gifts for. Honestly, who ever really knows what to get college students these days? What do you buy for an 18 to 23-year-old who is currently living a dynamic, hectic…

  • NotCompatible Mobile Malware Gets Badder

    Richard Adhikari
    21 Nov 2014 | 3:44 pm
    A new version of the NotCompatible malware, which first appeared in 2012, is bigger, badder and pretty much indestructible, Lookout Security reported. And it can compromise corporate networks, thanks to the BYOD trend. The malware, called "NotCompatible C," focuses on Android devices. "Given this is an Android Trojan and the app is not trusted by Google, it would need the 'Unknown Sources' special permissions to install," said Malwarebytes analyst Armando Orozco. "So users just have to not install apps from untrusted sources."
  • Another Bleak Black Friday for Apple Fans

    Chris Maxcer
    21 Nov 2014 | 12:15 pm
    Apple is a company that bucks trends, that does things its own way, that manages its business through highly tuned cycles. One thing Apple barely does at all, though, is offer any sort of special deal or sale price. Not even on Black Friday. Or Cyber Monday. Or just because. Heck, when Apple celebrated 25 billion App Store downloads, it gave one person a $10,000 iTunes Gift Card. At 50 billion App Store downloads, another $10,000 gift card. That was pretty exciting and fun.

The new version begins capturing keystrokes, or keylogging, when some processes are running. It was discovered on a server that already had been infected when IBM Trusteer Apex was installed -- it's not clear how the machine became infected.
  • Cinnamon Desktop Spices Up Makulu Linux

    Jack M. Germain
    20 Nov 2014 | 7:01 pm
    The Makulu Cinnamon Debian Edition 1.1 marks a new path for Makulu. This latest release has numerous new features that could make it a top competitor against the Linux Mint Cinnamon edition. Makulu Cinnamon Debian Edition, or MCDE, has fewer standard apps than the previous Makulu Xfce and KDE versions offered. Dropping the kitchen sink philosophy has made it a lot less unwieldy. MCDE has much going for it. However, one critical concern keeps me from making it my permanent Linux Mint Cinnamon replacement: Makulu is a one-person distro.

Baby monitors and CCTV networks are among the systems that have been compromised, explained Simon Rice, the ICO's group manager for technology.

Thankfully the folks at Pebble HQ have released a firmware update to fix a few of the little issues that have been affecting notifications. The big one is that the Pebble app which connects the watch to a smartphone can now accept notifications from any Android app, and will beam them over to the wrist-mounted display.

High school students are taking to Twitter with complaints about their school-provided lunches, directing their chicken sandwich and mystery-meat-fueled frustration at Mrs. Obama, who campaigned for stricter regulations on public school meals. The USDA thankfully now expects schools to steer clear of ultrasugary, high-carb foods. But kids nationwide are angry about admittedly pathetic lunches some schools are serving instead.

But that won’t prevent them from going all out online, where much is automated and the workers are less prominent. Here are some of the best deals on network and technology offerings for Black Friday, Cyber Monday and in between.

    21 Nov 2014 | 4:11 pm
    The crew at Neoseeker spent some quality time with the MSI GTX 980 Gaming 4G video card and, from what I gathered from the review, it seems they really liked the card. After playing with the MSI GTX 980 GAMING 4G over the last week, I can't help but feel fully satisfied as a PC hardware enthusiast. First of all, the card looks stunning with a gamer oriented design and great build quality. The attention to detail shown by MSI in this Gaming TF5 series graphics card is quite impressive and translates into a piece of hardware that will complement any high-end gaming system build.

In other words, the FCC's plans for an open internet need to be strong enough weather the legal ire of ISPs opposed Net Neutrality. Comments

My interest is twofold (well threefold, but we will get to that): - Firstly, exploration of space is always fascinating and who knows what we will learn from this (It's quite scary the number of people arguing this is a a waste of money!) - Secondly, it's another episode in the application of the advances in modern Robotics - and for a good, not a dystopian, outcome. The potential of robotics is well showcased here - the downside (surveillance by Philae's…

Every venture capitalist, in every interview they’ve ever done will tell you the same casual lie: That they invest in people first and ideas second. They’ll tell you they invest only in people they’d want to work with.

Near-Term Flag: By year-end 2016, 50 percent of digital transformation initiatives will be unmanageable due to lack of portfolio management skills, leading to a measurable negative lost market share. 2)…

    21 Nov 2014 | 1:06 am
    Consumer electronic giants Google and Apple have now introduced a new encryption technology in their smartphones in an attempt to protect the privacy of their users. This new encryption technology makes it almost impossible for external entities to access and decipher sensitive information, this includes picture, text messages and e-mails. While this may come as good news to users, the U.S Department Of Justice has taken a strong stand against this level of encryption. The DOJ has sent notice’s to Google and Apple regarding this tech.

    The Indian Post is the world’s largest postal network with 1.55 lakh registered post offices. In the recent past, the Indian post had faced a significant decline in terms of volume of business. This was primarily due to the Internet. The internet rendered the traditional concept of writing letters almost obsolete. However, the same internet has now created a business opportunity that has been valued at almost 9 billion dollars for the same sector it almost destroyed a few years ago. This opportunity has come in the form of “last mile” delivery for the booming e-commerce…

  • EU Parliament Wants To Break Up Google... Because It's Big & American Or Something

    Mike Masnick
    21 Nov 2014 | 7:39 pm
    On Friday, the Financial Times broke the story that the European Parliament is going to call for breaking up Google. Of course, the European Parliament can't actually do that, but it appears designed to put pressure on the EU Commission, which has been talking about antitrust actions against Google for quite some time. While it had looked like there was a settlement earlier this year, those plans more or less appeared to fall apart. Just recently, we wrote about efforts to force Google to change some of its search results in Europe -- and noted how problematic it gets when governments start…
  • Senators Hoping To Keep CIA From Destroying Most Of Its Employees' Emails

    The CIA and Senate have found more to fight about. With the "Torture Report" mostly in the hands of the White House at this point, the two are now battling over the CIA's planned alterations to its email retention policies. Key senators are pushing back against a CIA plan to destroy older emails of “non-senior” agency officials. The heads of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday sent a letter opposing the proposal, under which only the highest ranking CIA workers would have their email correspondence permanently saved. The plan “could allow the destruction of…
  • DailyDirt: The Legal Definition Of What You're Eating...

    Michael Ho

    There are some bizarre legal definitions for common foods. For example, we've seen that the definition of a sandwich was under dispute because a burrito place was encroaching on a sandwich shop in a shopping mall food court. That case decided that a burrito was not a sandwich, but food experts don't all agree on that point. Here are a few other cases of defining some foods legally and not with your gut. Unilever is suing a vegan "mayo" company because it doesn't use eggs in its product. The startup Hampton Creek may be benefiting from some publicity here, and its "Just Mayo" mayonnaise-like…
  • Bludgeoned And Bleeding, Aereo Finally Files For Bankruptcy

    Karl Bode
    21 Nov 2014 | 3:48 pm
    For a moment there, streaming video operator Aereo put on a brave face that it could continue despite last June's Supreme Court ruling against the company. While some interpretations of that ruling seemed to suggest that Aereo could be considered a cable company if it was willing to pay retransmission fees and effectively function as a delayed DVR service, those dreams were dashed in an October ruling that granted a pretty broad injunction by broadcasters. Judge Alison Nathan effectively stated at the time that Aereo should go ahead and die as the Supreme Court intended, and stop with all the…

    Techdirt has been following the extremely important case where a US magistrate judge ruled that Microsoft had to comply with a warrant asking for data held on servers in Dublin. Clearly, if this stands, it will have big implications for cloud computing -- and a massive negative impact on US businesses trying to sell such services around the world. For that reason, Microsoft has been fighting back in the courts, so far unsuccessfully. Now there's been an interesting development on the other side of the Atlantic, where Ireland's Minister for European Affairs and Data Protection has written to…

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

  • How to add a dedicated number row to the Android keyboard

    Here's one of those things that's been around for a little bit, but well hidden. If you're a fan of the stock Google keyboard but would love to have a dedicated number row - particularly given the size of many of today's smartphones - you can do it. It's not just an Android 5.0 Lollipop feature, so you're able to do this on the Nexus 6 or LG G3 or HTC One or whatever. You will, however, have to do a little digging in the keyboard settings. One of those little tips that can really make your phone better.

But to achieve that website owners not only need to purchase SSL certificates from verified registry's but also have to install(takes 2-3 hours), and manage them which makes them keep using HTTP instead of HTTPS. Let’s Encrypt is all set to change that, the new "free certificate authority" lets everyone be up and running with basic server certificates for their domains through a simple one-click process.

  • When Responsive Design Meets SEO Headline Writing

    Rex Hammock
    1 Nov 2014 | 7:06 am
    In the olden days of print, there was a term called “orphan ” that referred to a headline or paragraph with a lonely word dangling on a line by itself. The copy editor would rewrite it “to get rid of the orphan.” (For a discussion of widows and orphans, see: http://www.magazinedesigning.com.) Today, when we all read our news on various size screens on sites with “responsive design,” the headline length is not measured by “size” but by its relationship to the width of a container that I’ll just call “a column” (i.e., 100% of…

    Amit Agarwal
    22 Nov 2014 | 4:01 am
    Twitter has recently opened up their archives making it possible for anyone to search the entire Twitter database ever since the first tweet was published in 2006. This time-sorted archive of billions to tweets will be extremely helpful for research and more so when you are trying to find out who broke the news first on Twitter or who the original source of a quote is. To give you an example, if you want to know who said something first on Twitter, say the iPhone, you can head to Twitter’s advanced search, choose a range of dates and dig through the old tweets. If a match is found, you…
  • Get Daily Email Reports of your Google Drive Activity

    18 Nov 2014 | 11:20 pm
    The Google Drive website includes an Activity Stream to help you monitor changes to the various files and folders contained in your Drive. Whether you upload a file, move a file from one folder to another or change the sharing permissions, your actions will get logged. This is especially useful for users who have shared files in their Drive that can be edited by external users. The Activity Stream is however not available inside mobile apps and you’d have to log into the Google Drive website website daily to see what files and folders have changed recently.

  • How to Tell if Google Considers your Website as Mobile Friendly

    Amit Agarwal
    18 Nov 2014 | 11:10 pm
    You can no longer afford to not have a mobile-friendly website that isn’t readable or usable on a mobile phone. That’s because Google is now clearly marking websites (screenshot) in mobile search results that it considers mobile friendly and if that tag isn’t getting displayed around your content, your website may see a drop in mobile traffic. Responsive design is definitely the way to go but will that be enough. How do you confirm if your web pages are considered mobile friendly by Google? There are quite a few options. One, you can do a site:domain.com search in Google on…
  • The Best Websites to Learn Coding Online

    Amit Agarwal
    16 Nov 2014 | 11:36 am
    The Learn to Code movement, with the backing of the likes of Obama and Bill Gates, is picking up momentum worldwide and that is actually a very good thing as even basic programming skills can have a major impact. If you can teach yourself how to write code, you will gain a competitive edge over your peers, you can think more algorithmically and thus can tackle problems more efficiently. Don’t just download the latest app, help redesign it. Don’t just play on your phone, program it. — Obama. There’s no reason why shouldn’t know the basics of coding. You can automate…
  • Add the Same File to Multiple Folders in Google Drive without Copying

    Amit Agarwal
    10 Nov 2014 | 7:56 am
    Gmail works around tags (or labels) and any email message can belong to one or more tags. Google Drive however uses folders instead of tags and thus any file, or folder, can have exactly one parent folder. For instance, if you have uploaded a presentation file in FolderA, it can’t simultaneously exist in FolderB. Right? Not really. You will be pleasantly surprised to know, at least I was, that Google Drive does allow you to place any file inside one or more folders without you having to create multiple copies of that file. This makes organization easier and if you edit this file inside…

  • Far Cry 4 review: The most thrilling deja vu experience you'll ever play

    22 Nov 2014 | 4:00 am
    "An eagle!" my soldier yells. "Look out! Help me!" My men, who I've seen stand fast in the face of overwhelming machine gun fire, are scattering because of a dive-bombing bird. The eagle circles overhead, taunting me before swooping down and raking its claws across my arm.Just as I start to recover, an enemy patrol drives by and spots us shooting into the air. They decide to join the party, aiming at us briefly before a rhinoceros slams into their truck and throws them over a cliff.And that's when the mortar fire starts raining down on our heads. Aimed at me? Aimed at my fellow soldiers?
  • Why is Microsoft updating Windows PCs for a security bug on the server?

    21 Nov 2014 | 5:25 pm
    When Microsoft released a critical update for multiple versions of Windows Server this month, it also pushed out a fix for several releases of the Windows client OS, including even the technical preview for Windows 10.It was critical to get the patch out for Windows Server: An exploit affecting Windows Server 2008 R2 and earlier versions has already been detected, and Windows Server 2012 and later releases are vulnerable to a related but more difficult attack.But the vulnerability isn’t present in the desktop versions of Windows.

  • Tackling Cassandra Data Integration

    Brad Wright
    20 Nov 2014 | 8:35 am
    NoSQL databases are all the rage these days. A recent article by Matt Asay at InfoWorld argues that though Hadoop gets all of the credit for big data’s popularity, it’s actually NoSQL databases that are more often deployed. In fact, “while shopping for a Hadoop vendor is relatively straightforward, picking a NoSQL database is anything but. There are, after all, in excess of 100 NoSQL databases.” Matt lists MongoDB, HBase and Cassandra as three NoSQL databases to watch. If you’re a longtime Data Connections blog reader, you know that we’ve developed relationships with a number of…

    A recent article on mobile databases discusses how embeddable databases can be used on mobile devices, allowing your mobile application to satisfy its storage needs without having to rely on back-end storage services.  But for enterprise mobile applications becoming more prevalent in business environments this is not always possible or desired. We must preserve data security and avoid data synchronization issues.

There was only one problem with that post. I didn’t actually have an iMac to compare. I ran all my tests using my high-end Mid 2012 MacBook Pro Retina Display. I noted that although my MacBook Pro fared quite well against the Mac Pro for common “photography workflow” tasks, that an iMac…

It also tends to be the work of dealing with unhappy customers — who are complaining about an incorrect order, a delayed delivery, or simply demanding to have your product or service yesterday. When we spend our days, and years, this way, we begin to believe all of our customers are unhappy. This could not be farther from the truth. Think about your customers: most them have been with you for years. Decades maybe. They stay with you, because they are happy with you. If I were to ask your…

    In the last week, I’ve delivered six workshops and keynote speeches in Denver, Houston, Chicago, and Las Vegas. During the portion of my sessions that covered communicating (not just collecting) testimonials, several people had this rather common resistance: “I’m not going to share my customers’ names so that my competition can steal them.” One guy who runs an eight-figure distributorship actually said to me, “You need to understand that our industry is different.” Listen to me carefully: No, it’s not. Your industry and your business —…

    You deserve more revenue. You provide tremendous value to your customers. You improve their lives and grow their companies. Ask them, and they’ll tell you. As such, you deserve more revenue. But many others deserve for your company to grow as well: Your existing customers deserve to do business with a thriving, successful firm. Your staff and colleagues, who you’re with on the front lines every day, deserve to work for a flourishing, growing company. Your family certainly deserves that your company sells more, so that all of you can live better. Your prospects deserve to benefit…

    My average client grows by 15% to 20% in their first year with me. On the low end, some clients grow by “just” 5% or 10% because you can stumble accidentally into that kind of growth after experiencing the mindset change we work on, and applying just a few of the techniques I teach. On the high end, I have clients who grow by 30% and even more in their first year. (And that’s annual, from now until the end of time, as long as you choose to implement the marketing we create for you.) I’ve analyzed what separates the top growers from the ones who grow the least.

    It looks like Teresa Aprea isn’t interested in being the only RHONJ star to battle ugly cheating rumors. According to RadarOnline, Teresa Giudice is “fuming” over on-air allegations made by Aprea that her husband Joe has been less than faithful. A source told Radar, “Teresa didn’t want any of the cheating allegations to air during the season.” The insider claimed that Bravo agreed, because they really wanted Giudice to participate in the latest Real Housewives of New Jersey season. After all, she was embroiled in a major scandal, the kind that was sure to bring in BIG ratings for…

    Donald Sutherland as President Coriolanus Snow will no doubt be remembered as one of the better movie villains in recent history. However, Sutherland didn’t land the crucial role in the blockbuster Hunger Gamesfranchise because he was asked to portray the tyrant. Instead, Donald Sutherland revealed that he actively fought for the role as Snow. “Nobody asked me to do it,” said Sutherland. “I wasn’t offered it. I like to read scripts, and it captured my passion.” Sutherland wasn’t deterred by the fact that President Snow had little to no speaking lines in the first movie.

    Bill Belichick is not a man to be trifled with. The hard-nosed New England Patriots coach was not amused when running back Jonas Gray showed up late for practice on Friday. Belichick has a long-standing rule about punctuality: If a player does not report to the facility on time, that player will not get to practice that day. Even though Gray has since apologized to Bill Belichick and his teammates, his absence from training was heavily scrutinized. His absence has only further fueled speculation as to what will become of the breakout New England running back. Though he had an outstanding…

    Mobile data is as precious as currency. Despite several telecom players committing to making mobile data affordable, fact remains that data is still expensive and as a result it makes sense you want to penny drop and save every kb possible when it comes to mobile data. And one way of doing this is micromanaging when the data is on. For example, when you are asleep at night, you may not really want mobile data and might as well simply turn it off. But turning mobile data on Android phone can involve several steps, either by going into the notifications bar or into settings unless you have a…

The new encryption system adopted by Google and Apple prevents any third party access to text messages, picture exchanges and contact information between users.

    15 Nov 2014 | 6:47 am
    In early September, Motorola launched the New Moto G (2nd Generation) in India which is a successor to Moto G 1st gen. In comparison to older version of Moto G, the new MOTO G 2014 features a bigger screen, an improved camera, front-facing stereo speakers, and support for expandable storage. What’s common between the duos is that both houses the same hardware, i.e. same CPU and GPU with 1GB of RAM. The battery capacity hasn’t been increased as well which is quite disappointing. The new MOTO G has been launched at a pricing of Rs. 12,999 for 16GB variant, hence cheaper than the first gen.

In this first of a two-part Monday Note, I offer a look at the obstacles and developments that preceded the Apple Pay launch. When I landed in Cupertino in 1985, I was shocked, shocked to find that so much gambling was going on in here. But it wasn’t the Rick’s Café Américain kind of gambling, it was the just-as-chancy use of plastic: Colleagues would heedlessly offer their credit card numbers to merchants over the phone; serious, disciplined executives would hand their AmEx…
  • The New York Times and Springer Are Wrong About Blendle

    2 Nov 2014 | 12:23 pm
      by Frédéric Filloux With its idea of creating “iTunes for the press”, Blendle rattles the news industry’s cage. In spite of blessings from The New York Times and Axel Springer, the shiny new thing might just be a mirage.   Last week, two young Dutch people came up with a string of magic words: “iTunes for the press”, “New York Times”, and “Axel Springer”. The founders of Blendle, Alexander Klöpping and Marten Blankesteijn, were promising a miracle cure to a sick industry: a global system for the distribution of editorial products…

    Jean-Louis Gassée
    2 Nov 2014 | 12:23 pm
      by Jean-Louis Gassée Trading one’s privacy for the benefit of others isn’t an easy decision. Tim Cook just made such a swap, and the reverberations are beginning to be heard. I’m happy and relieved that Tim Cook decided to “come out”, to renounce his cherished privacy and speak of his sexual orientation in plain terms rather than veiled, contorted misdirections. The unsaid is toxic. If you haven’t done so already, please take the time to read Tim’s I’m Proud to Be Gay Businessweek editorial. Soberly written and discreetly moving, the piece concludes with: “…I’m…

    Anyone who does a lot of copying and pasting of text on a computer knows how essential a clipboard manager is. I’ve used quite a few over the years, and while there are several great solutions, Irradiated’s iClip ($18.99, free trial) rises above them all. Over a year ago, I included iClip in a review of Mac clipboard managers, and at the time Clips was as my clipboard manager of choice. Clips, however, became unstable and was rarely updated. After trying a few other clipboard managers, I reopened iClip several months ago and discovered a few features I had previously…

    The acceleration of the solar wind requires an energy source that is today not well understood. Parker's original theory invoked electron heat flux. Many theories make use of wave propagation and several resonant or non-resonant dissipation processes. Still other theories invoke magnetic reconnection or turbulence. At present, our most detailed insights are provided by measurements of the solar wind atomic, isotopic and charge-state composition in union with theoretical treatments that attempt to understand the relative efficiency of acceleration for different particle types.read more

    17 Nov 2014 | 7:00 am
    So you've seen this blog and others like it and think you can do it yourself? Well it's not that easy and I regularly fail but I thought in the spirit of openness and transparency that I should share my top ten tips to creating a successful blog. If you follow these ten tips you are well on the way to creating a blog as successful as many others that you see online.   Put the Date on all posts it protects you from looking more stupid than you already are when the post becomes irrelevant. Create an infographic - every site must have at least one meaningless infographic. Take free stuff,…
  • Which font should I use?

    14 Nov 2014 | 9:44 am
    I like fonts. I like to use different fonts. I have downloaded lots of fonts for different projects. Each time I start a new project I waste lots of time looking for the "perfect" font. The problem is that I have forgotten what all of the fonts I already have look like so finding the right font is a slow and frustrating process. On my Mac I have fontbook which catalogs all my fonts and lets me quickly see the alphabet in that font but that is just not good enough. There are two things it doesn't do which I really miss. It doesn't show me my custom text string in the selected font. (Too many…
  • Joomla! ® the next 10 years

    12 Nov 2014 | 7:05 pm
    During the Joomla World Conference I was able to present an alternative proposal for structural change for Joomla. Based on a previous blog post the transcript of my presentation and a video of it together with the slides is below. You can find a transcript of all three presentations and the Q&A session here - thanks to Marijke for taking the time to transcribe everything. So what is it all about? Joomla! is all about community, and it is no accident that community shares a lot of letters with communication. And with communication you improve community. When we talk about power…
  • JWC - It's good to fail

    12 Nov 2014 | 2:03 pm
    I have just returned from the third Joomla World Conference and I think it is positive to reflect on the event - the good and the bad. In my JoomlaIgnite session I said it is "good to fail" because that means you are trying hard and that the challenge is to recognise those failures and react quickly. It is no secret that I was not in favour of creating an event at a beach resort in Mexico. My main objection was that creating an event where people were encouraged to attend with their families would destroy the community feeling. Community Feeling In reality only a few people brought their…
  • Joomla? What is the problem?

    8 Nov 2014 | 12:20 pm
    On Friday night in Cancun, Mexico at the third Joomla World Conference I presented an Ignite session. Ignite is a presentation format where you have 20 slides and only 15 seconds before each slide changes. What I actually said on the night you will have to wait for the video but this is what I intended to write. This is my family - they are all lawyers and the one in the middle is a judge. 9 and half years ago lawyers like them gave me some advice - Keep quiet - don’t say anything until you have made all your decisions - That was wrong and bad advice. I realised quite quickly that if you…

    Just finished another ICT-related technical assistance visit with a developing country government. Even in mid-2014, I spend a large amount of time teaching basic principles of enterprise architecture, and the need for adding form and structure to ICT strategies. Service-oriented architectures (SOA) have been around for quite a long time, with some references going back to the 1980s. ITIL, COBIT, TOGAF, and other ICT standards or recommendations have been around for quite a long time as well, with training and certifications part of nearly every professional development program.

Nazareno that “we’re going through a profound and painful transformation to digital technologies.”  He continued to explain that in addition to making the move to a digital corporate culture and architecture that for traditional telcos to succeed they will need to “master new skills, including new partnership skills.” That direction drives a line straight down the middle of attendees at the conference.  Surprisingly, many companies attending and…
  • What Value Can I Expect from Cloud Computing Training?

    Administrator
    30 Aug 2013 | 6:31 pm
    Normally, when we think of technical-related training, images of rooms loaded with switches, routers, and servers might come to mind.    Cloud computing is different.  In reality, cloud computing is not a technology, but rather a framework employing a variety of technologies – most notably virtualization, to solve business problems or enable opportunities. From our own practice, the majority of cloud training students represent non-technical careers and positions. Our training does follow the CompTIA Cloud Essentials course criterion, and is not a technical course, so the non-technical…

  • Cloud Security Alliance Hack-A-Thon and the Software Defined Perimeter

    David Monahan
    7 Nov 2014 | 10:00 am
    The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) is a not-for-profit think tank of volunteers that spend their time trying to better the internet. These people are the antithesis of cybercriminals; they spend their energy trying to figure out ways to make our data safer. They create best practices for providing security assurance within cloud computing, or in this case, they determine how a cloud environment can be used to enhance and scale authentication for a service that can be cloud-based or private data center-based. Just last week, CSA announced the results of a worldwide Hackathon against an…

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

    This week, Las Vegas hosted some 3500 people at the MGM Grand to mark Splunk .conf14, the annual user gathering for Splunk customers, referred to as “Splunkers”. For those of you not in the tech industry, spelunking, or the act of exploring caves, may come to mind. The theme of the conference was not cave exploration, but data exploration; however, the analogy of cave exploration actually aligns very well. “Splunkers” are diving into their data, delving deep into places that many have never explored before. Each of them finding new and cool ways to use the data that they have been…
  • Network Management: Still a ‘Must-Have’ for Enterprise IT

    Jim Frey
    7 Oct 2014 | 9:23 am
    It’s sometimes difficult to differentiate between hype and reality when it comes to topics such as cloud, ITaaS, SDN, DevOps, hybrid this and hybrid that. But there are a few certainties in the IT universe and one of them is that IT doesn’t function if all of the pieces can’t talk to one another, and that means the network needs to be rock solid. Some of that is under the control of enterprise IT teams as internal network infrastructure, but some of it isn’t, such as WAN or Internet. Because connectivity is so essential, no one questions the need for making sure the network is healthy…
  • Citrix Stakes Software-Defined Ground; Network Remains Critical to Success

    Last week, I attended a Citrix analyst relations summit program to learn about the company’s direction and strategy.  While the main-tent program was longer on vision than it was on execution details, there were some aspects of the proceedings that I found compelling. First off, there weren’t a lot of net new things being introduced, other than some roadmaps shared under NDA and a truly cool multi-station mobile work experience demo. But that’s ok.  Too often, tech companies feel compelled to forever be pushing “something new,” when in reality IT pros need vendors to stick to…

    The latest Windows Phone ad not only pits Cortana against Apple's Siri, but shows off some of the features that the optional HTC Dot View Cover can do on the Windows Phone-powered HTC One (M8) for Windows. The ad starts with Siri looking in the mirror, admiring her prettiness, and goes on to the One (M8) for Windows showing off the features of the Dot View Cover, like activating Cortana, receiving notifications, and answering calls. In terms of similar cases for the iPhone? The fun stops there as it looks like other iPhone covers just muffle up Siri.

    The biggest shopping day of the year is fast approaching. They call it Black Friday, the day after American Thanksgiving, and while the origin of the name as the point where retailers' balance books shift from being in the red (running a loss) for the year to black (profit!) is dubious (any business that's losing money for 11 out of 12 months probably won't be around for next year's sales), the day still sees numerous retailers across the country offering substantial deals on a wide range of products.

Unfortunately, when talking to marketing managers I often hear they don’t know whether their investment really paid off. Basically this means it probably didn’t or they just don’t have any idea. Fact is that many marketing managers don’t know how to value their social media investment. They are happy that they managed to increase their follower base, but don’t know if this had any impact on their brand awareness, engagement, sales results, etc. The…

    Business travel is currently one of the world’s comeback kids. As companies cautiously step out from the shadows of the all too recent global financial crisis, the idea of jetting around the globe to seal the deal once again seems both feasible and – more importantly – necessary. Such trips do however present a degree of risk and it is therefore imperative that they are carefully planned to maximise their potential. Some of the most important elements to plan are those that the traveller encounters before they even meet their client. Are you booking the right flight? Have you…

And that’s exactly what they are doing. None of them teach you to be an entrepreneur. Or to see opportunity. They just tell you what is required of you.

While the show is designed to gauge how business savvy these people are, it’s not necessarily true to life and there are plenty of successful business people out there who wouldn’t survive more than a few weeks on the hit BBC show. The show has changed over the years and candidates are no longer vying for a job with Lord Sugar; they’re now looking to go into a partnership with him.

    In the past drones have been used mostly for military use in the United States, but with the cost of making them dropping in recent years it has commercial users more interested in utilizing the drones in their business.

He has even stated that the deliveries would be completed within thirty minutes or less. Is this truly a possibility when it comes to the delivery of our packages?

The roll of selfies and the idea of meeting new people had me thinking I was on Tinder, but upon closer inspection I was on the ON homepage. ON is like a smorgasbord of the best features from other social media platforms and combines it into one experience that could change the way we meet new people. ON as a standalone app does what Tinder does; discover and meet new people through photos. What ON does differently is take the best parts of Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and Tinder and roll…

Google launched many other products like Google Buzz, Wave and finally a stable one known as Google+ but it closed Buzz & Wave as they could not stand in the crowd. Google+ is doing fine rather good in many terms and hence

    Facebook is the all-time favourite socializing network that we are perpetually logged in to, whether at work or at home checking updates and loading snaps. It lets us stay in touch with friends from childhood days and with family in far off places. You could connect with them, you could leave a message for your contact on their profile/inbox for them to read later, and what not. Now, with the Facebook Messenger for PC, one can stay connected with our contacts all the time in a more efficient and time saving way.

The app is quite amazing with its packed features, although it might seem a bit unusual for the people already working on the best applications of the category viz Snapeed or PicsArt. Still, this application is good enough to try it out, and all thanks to its vital features that enriches the pics with a variety of effects. The app even works best if you have a phone which…

The game can be considered an official game of the movie despicable Me. Well, in case you haven’t watched the movie yet you will not need to so as to understand the game.

  • Nature and Nurture: A Validation of Idea Screening

    Paul Crowe
    19 Nov 2014 | 11:15 am
    Our overnight idea screening tool, Ideas Overnight, has become a big hit with our clients. Since launching in March of 2014, over 30 clients in the US have used the tool to expedite and improve their innovation process. Interestingly, we still receive the occasional question of whether or not idea screening is a “validated” tool. Clients who aren’t quantitatively screening their ideas want to know whether or not idea screening can predict later concept scores (and, by extension, success in the market). I’ll admit that I have often taken this for granted as the typical non-quantitative…

    In my day-to-day work focusing on product development and product testing related issues, it’s always interesting to see that some of the seemingly most basic questions are the ones that are the most difficult. One of the struggles I’ve witnessed most recently is the struggle to identify the “right” competitive benchmark, whether the objective is to innovate or renovate. There are numerous trends impacting or fundamentally changing our ability to identify that one key competitor. I was reminded of this when I was reading about McDonald’s Q3 performance just last week, which saw a…

    The diary dilemma… For years, diary studies have been conducted to get a closer look into the consumer experience as well as usage of various products and services, both while in-home and on-the-go. Truth be told, the level of information obtained from diaries is invaluable as it allows for an intimate glimpse into not only why respondents rate products and services the way they do, but also how those ratings might influence purchase decisions in the future. But, admittedly, capturing diary insights can be a bit cumbersome. Respondents are typically asked to record their behaviors and…

    Branding is a lot like middle school. You want to stand out, you want to be your own person – but you only want the “right” people to notice. So you change your hair style…slightly. You maybe try a new brand of clothing, one that looks the same as the old brand. You vow to raise your hand more in class, but not enough to become the teacher’s pet. This came to mind when we were discussing the “Share a Coke” campaign (the one where they put people’s names and cutesy words like “Legend” and “BFF” and all kinds of things that grownups never say to one another on the cans…

    In 2014, price decline continued to deteriorate, which led to a sharp fall in revenue of South Korean vendors. The implications of high-speed capacity expansion are high fixed costs, which would thus result in a plunge in profit margin. It is projected that the revenue of INTERFLEX, a leading South Korean FPCB company, would tumble by 50%, and its operating margin would record a 27% loss in 2014 in contrast to no-profit-no-loss in 2013. Additionally, affected by the order shift of Apple, the company has hardly received any orders from Apple in 2014.

      Corning has recently unveiled the new Gorilla Glass 4. The newest Gorilla Glass is said to be twice as tough as its predecessor. At only 0.44mm thick, it can survive up to 80% of drops from a height of 1 meter (3ft). Corning conducted a series of drop tests to find out what damages drop phones the most. It turns out that damage caused by “sharp contact” accounted for more than 70 percent of broken screens. By sharp contact, the manufacturer meant dropping the phone on a rough surface, such as asphalt or concrete. Phone screens are less likely to shatter if it fell on…

    Setu
    21 Sep 2014 | 9:16 am
    If you are making a FaceTime call on your brand new iPhone 6, and the other party is not able to hear you properly, it is quite likely that you have not taken the plastic wrap off the phone. The noise cancellation microphone between the camera and the flash is covered with the plastic wrap on a new iPhone 6. This causes the iPhone’s noise canceling algorithm to malfunction when you make a FaceTime call (or any call with the speakerphone on). In order to fix this issue, just take the plastic wrap off, or, if you don’t want to take it off until you get a case (totally understandable), use a…

    Dave Paul

    How often do you type a search into that little bar on the top of your browser? For most of us, the answer is “often”—and probably at least once within the past 15 minutes. In the age of instant gratification, users are less and less likely to navigate to a search website, and more likely to use the built-in functionality of their browser. That means that a contract won by Yahoo this week is a big deal. Under the contract, Yahoo will become the default search engine for Mozilla Firefox in the U.S. starting in December. Firefox is the third-biggest web browser by market share. This would…

  • Gamespot's loading hearts

    7 Apr 2014 | 1:00 am
    "Video games ruined my life. Good thing I have extra lives." If you're a passionate gamer like me, then you've probably heard this before. On this matter, the other days I was browsing through some reviews to find out more about my latest favorite game, Dark Souls 2 which by the way, it rocks. But, I'm not making video games reviews here. The thing is that while checking the Gamespot review, I noticed a very nice and original loader somehow inspired by the above tagline. I fall instantly in love with that animation and tried to replicate it with CSS, I just couldn't help myself. So, just in…

    Tesla CEO Elon Musk has responded to critics of his plans to build a battery "gigafactory" in Nevada. And he's not pulling any punches. Musk defended his company's plans in a blog post entitled "The House Always Wins," a reference to casino gambling. "There have been several articles recently implying that Tesla, through clever machinations, maneuvered Nevada into providing an overly large incentive package for the Gigafactory," said Musk. "I love backhanded compliments as much as the next person, but this is untrue." Musk was presumably referring to an investigative report in Fortune that…

In an unprecedented move, the streaming service picked up the series for two seasons. The comedy will debut in March on Netflix, which is around the same time it was supposed to air on NBC. “The very construct of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt — its offbeat premise, hilarious and rich characters and serialized storytelling — make it a perfect Netflix comedy series,” Cindy Holland, VP of…

    The European parliament is thinking about making a ruling that Google split off its search engine from other parts of its business, according to a report today in the Financial Times.  But we were wondering: how can Europe order an American company to break apart? How would that even work? "I don't know," answered Herbert Hovenkamp, a law professor at the University of Iowa who is considered one of the leading American experts on European antitrust law. "I think it’d be very difficult for Google to disaggregate all its own assets and interests from Google Search just in Europe.

    Airbnb prides itself on offering an alternative experience for travelers, and this listing in rural Cottonwood, Idaho is certainly unique.  "Stay in a giant dog!" the listing says. "That's right, it's a beagle-shaped one-unit inn where being in this doghouse is a GOOD thing and comfortable to boot!" The structure was built by two artists who got their big break selling wooden dog carvings on QVC. They used the money they made to build the Dog Bark Park, where they continue to make dog carvings.  The inn sleeps four and includes a continental breakfast and free parking. One night's…

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

So on that note, I decided to use my IT skills for the good of the country.

    Recently, I downloaded a video off the Internet that was in Hindi and I needed to add English subtitles to the video so that I could share it with some friends. I checked out Windows Movie Maker, which has the ability to overlay text on video, but the feature set was very poor and it was nearly impossible to control where the subtitles showed up, for how long, and in what kind of format. Another problem with Windows Movie Maker is that you can’t create subtitles that show up as an option in DVD players; it’s either always there or not. After doing some research, I found that the…

    20 Nov 2014 | 7:50 am
    Long ago, all the system and application configurations were stored in their respective directories, but this method was so clumsy. To solve this, Microsoft introduced Windows registry which virtually hosts all the settings and configurations. In fact, Windows registry is much like a database for all the configurations and settings. Since all the settings reside in one place, Windows registry is where you can do all kinds of advanced stuff like changing operating system configurations, hardware device settings, software settings, etc.Moreover, every little change you make in your system,…

    Michael Cowling, Senior Lecturer & Discipline Leader, Mobile Computing & Applications at Central Queensland University
    20 Nov 2014 | 9:04 pm
    Webcams have been made public because their passwords weren't changed from the default. Flickr/Cory Doctorow, CC BY-NC-SAThere are concerns that thousands of private webcams around the world could be streaming live images to anybody who wishes to view them – without their owner knowing – thanks to a Russian website providing a convenient list of every camera that can be accessed. But how is the website doing this? Just like with those who had concerns over Facebook’s Messenger app, the website is exploiting the fact that most users accept the default settings on webcams.

  • Ice bath after exercise? The benefits might be in your head

    James Broatch, PhD Candidate in Exercise Physiology at Victoria University

    How much of an ice bath is a placebo? Andreas Nilsson/Flickr, CC BY-NC-NDWhether an athlete has endured the repeated joint stresses of a marathon run, or the relentless battery of hits during a football match, many will opt for a post-activity polar plunge into an ice-cold bath. There is method to this madness, though – many studies show that ice baths allow athletes to recover faster, train harder and ultimately perform better, and are thought to accelerate the body’s recovery, preparing it for the next gruelling training session. Given the subjective nature of muscle soreness, might the…

Flickr/Jeff Turner, CC BYOccasional erratic bursts southward of the East Australian Current (EAC) are thought to have moderated the weather of south-east Australia this autumn and winter and they continue to introduce tropical and sub-tropical marine species to Tasmanian waters. Ocean monitoring by Australia’s Integrated Marine Observing System is providing scientists with significant new insights into the changing structure of the EAC.

  • Could more equal less when it comes to consciousness and pain?

    Olivia Carter, Senior Research Fellow and Lecturer at University of Melbourne
    19 Nov 2014 | 9:14 pm
    Will we ever have a scientific measure of consciousness? This was the essay topic I set my student a few months ago – only days before I went on maternity leave for the recent birth of my baby Joe (more on that later). This is not an easy question to answer. The pursuit of such a measure remains a goal of many of the world’s top scientists. Philosophers continue to debate whether such a measure is even theoretically possible. Meanwhile, ethicists and policy makers are busy considering how such a measure might inform decisions relating to animal welfare, abortion and end of life care. The…

  • Take full control of Windows updates with ABC-Update

    Mike Williams
    21 Nov 2014 | 3:27 pm
    It’s important to keep Windows up-to-date, and the easiest way to make that happen is to let the operating system handle everything. Set Windows Update to "automatic" and get on with something else. But if you need more control, some way to install only your chosen updates, at a time that’s convenient for you, then it might be worth looking at ABC-Update. The program arrives as a simple command line tool, with nothing to install: just a single executable, program licence and a PDF manual. No need to worry about compatibility, it should work just fine on anything from Windows XP to 10.

    Companies are still failing to properly protect themselves from potential attacks and hackers, with security not being given enough weight of consideration -- and indeed, many firms haven’t even covered the fundamentals of keeping intruders out of their networks and data. This is according to Neira Jones, a security expert who chairs the Global Advisory Board for the Centre for Strategic Cybercrime & Security Science, who criticized businesses for failing to "fix the basics" of protecting data, and lacking sufficient "cyber-security awareness programs".

    Santa Claus is a great man; he delivers gifts to all of us as a reward for being good. While people have tried to trick me into thinking he isn't real, I refuse to fall for it. Of course he is real! Who else is putting presents under my tree? My mom? I think I would have caught her by now. As great as Santa Claus is, apparently, Google is looking to get into the gifting game too. You see, the search-giant is giving away 1TB of Google Drive storage for two years. Hell, for many, that is better than a crappy wooden train from Santa Claus! To score the free storage, you only need to buy a new…
  • Vintager 2014 lets you transform digital snaps into photos of yesteryear

    Nick Peers
    21 Nov 2014 | 8:56 am
    There’s something to be said for the way old printed photos age over time, as they turn yellow or sepia, coloring our own perception of the past. With the rise of digital, of course, all that has come to an end, with photos promising to remain as color-sharp, bright and vibrant as the day they were originally shot. If you wonder how those photos might look in the future had they been shot on film and left to fade over time, there’s no need to wait if you’re a Windows user. Simply install Vintager 2014 and you can see how they might have looked 20, 30 or even 40 years hence. As its name…

But iTunes is still the most obvious choice when it comes to backing up your iPhone, so most of us use it regardless. That doesn’t have to be the case though, as there are a number of third party options to take care of your back-up and restore requirements. CopyTrans Shelbee is one of the…

    If the main reason of buying more wrist watches than you really need is because of your desire for design variety, then we think the e-ink powered FES Watch might just be right up your timepiece-obsessed alley. While e-ink application in watches isn’t new, this particular item designed by Japanese design studio TAKT Project takes application of this power-sipping e-paper to a whole new level by applying it to the watch strap as well. Both the watch face and the strap are independent of each other, which means you can change the design of the face and the strap individually, thus…

    Mentre i servizi cloud come Dropbox, Google Drive o OneDrive sono immensamente popolari, c’è anche un mercato per gli utenti e le aziende che non vogliono che i loro dati siano memorizzati su server di terze parti. BitTorrent Sync, lanciato originariamente nel 2013, è uno degli strumenti che offre la sincronizzazione di file senza server. Questo è solo uno dei vantaggi della tecnologia. Non è ad esempio necessario registrare nessun account e lo spazio di archiviazione è limitato solo dalla capacità di archiviazione locale e non a un certo piano di abbonamento che si sottoscrive.

    Today, I am releasing CryptoNark version 0.5.6, which contains three notable changes/improvements: OpenSSL version detection has been updated up to the latest versions released on October 15, 2014. Due to the POODLE vulnerability, colorization of all SSL3 ciphers are now red regardless of cipher strength, which is an attempt to encourage people to start disabling sslv3 support on their ssl servers/websites. Added some preliminary SHA-2 certificate detection. If cnark sees that the SSL certificate on the site uses an SHA-2 signature algorithm, it will highlight that in green. If it doesn't see…

One caveat: I've only tested this on WIndows 8.1 under a Strawberry Perl 5.18.2 installation. Please let me know if there are any issues on older/newer versions of Strawberry Perl. One additional item to note in this version. SSLv2 connections to some sites were causing perl to crash when running on Windows.

  • Day 3 at re:Invent

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

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

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

    I grabbed lunch with a well respected entrepreneur / investor on my trip to the Silicon Valley last week. One of the topics we discussed has been on my mind for the last couple years: should startups drive their product strategies more like Apple or Amazon? The Apple versus Amazon debate goes like this: Apple has shown an uncanny sense for creating new products. They are known for telling their consumers what they want, and delivering it fully functional with high profile launches. Think iPod, iTunes, iPhone and iPad. Amazon is known for delivering incrementally based on customer feedback,…

    I just spent the day at Yosemite. No, not Yosemite National Park, but Yosemite the OSX upgrade. I'm not exactly sure what I was thinking upgrading OSX the weekend before heading off to Vegas for re:Invent. I've never really had issues with an OSX upgrade, and figured this one should be smooth too. Right? Unfortunately I didn't take the time to read up on what people were seeing before clicking on the Install button. If I had, I would have run this command and realized I would need 40 hours for this upgrade to complete (my upgrade restored ~5 files per second): $ find /usr/local | wc -l 772764…

And quite honestly, this isn’t a symptom you look to fix if you have a ton to do. But the first sign of trouble I noticed was what I call a ‘time collapse.’ If we had met before, I couldn’t tell…

They decide to join the party, aiming at us briefly before a rhinoceros slams into their truck and throws them over a cliff. And that's

    It appears Apple didn’t learn its lesson from forcing unwanted “gifts” on consumers, and is preparing to push its recently acquired Beats Music music streaming service onto all iPhone and iPad users next year, an FT report claims. Beats Music is Spotify competitor created by music impresarios Dr Dre and Jimmy Lovine as a spin-off from their over-hyped headphone business.
