  • Earth's magnetic field may be more than 750 million years older than previously thought

    Richard Moss

    The Earth's magnetic field is crucial to life on the planet. It keeps out harmful solar winds, which would strip away our atmosphere and surface water and bombard us with radiation if left unchecked. A new analysis of zircon minerals suggests that the field originated at least 4.2 billion years ago – a hop after the planet formed in the geological timeline, and much earlier than previously thought...

    30 Jul 2015 | 11:19 pm
    Five men with complete motor paralysis have regained the ability to move their legs voluntarily and produce step-like movements after being treated with a non-invasive form of spinal cord stimulation. The new treatment builds on prior work to generate voluntary movements in paralyzed people through electrical stimulation – in particular, two studies (one completed in 2011, the other in 2014) that involved surgically implanting an electrode array on the spinal cord. This time, however, the researchers found success without performing any invasive surgery... Continue Reading Non-invasive…

    How do we make personal and commercial drones safe?

    Surveillance cameras have experienced rapid growth over the last few years as security has turned out to be a very important aspect in both home and business environments. Almost all NAS vendors have either specific NVR (network video recorder) models, or provide apps for recording surveillance footage on their generic NAS models. A couple of years back, we reviewed the LenovoEMC PX2-300D with Milestone Arcus VMS pre-installed on the NAS. Unlike pure NAS vendors, vendors of networking components such as Buffalo Tech can provide a complete package for surveillance based on IP cameras. Today,…

    With Windows 10 being rolled out in waves, there are likely a large number of people who are enthusiastic to get the upgrade now. Staring at your Windows Update and asking it to check again is a process that will get old fairly quickly. If you want to upgrade now, and you really don’t want to wait, you can download the software yourself to initiate the install. There are a couple of warnings I’ll give before you do this though. Windows 10 is really unlike any previous version rolled out. The plan is to be constantly updating and improving it over time, and adding features. As…

    Windows 10 has been out for a day, and Microsoft is reporting it has been installed on over 14 million devices so far. That’s not a bad start, but as Microsoft outlined a few weeks ago, the rollout is going to be in waves which should help with network demand from ISPs as well as a belt and suspenders approach against any crippling bugs which might pop up as the amount of different hardware it gets installed on increases. At Microsoft’s Build developer conference, they laid out their goal of having Windows 10 installed on one billion devices in the next three years, which is their…

  • Why Micron/Intel's New Cross Point Memory Could Virtually Last Forever

    31 Jul 2015 | 5:14 am
    Lucas123 writes: As they announced their new 3D XPoint memory this week, Micron and Intel talked a lot about its performance being 1,000X that of NAND flash, but what they talked less about was how it also has the potential to have 1,000X the endurance of today's most popular non-volatile memories. NAND flash typically can sustain from 3,000 to 10,000 erase-write cycles — more with wear-leveling and ECC. If Micron and Intel's numbers are to be believed, 3D XPoint could exceed one million write cycles. The reason for that endurance involves the material used to create the XPoint…

    Not long after the original iPhone came out, I had a friend that was close to a major luxury brand auto maker. He also knew Steve Jobs well. He asked Steve if he was interested in talking to this company about finding a way to connect an iPhone to their entertainment system.

  • Meek Mill finally releases Drake diss track

    31 Jul 2015 | 5:37 am
    The greatest rap beef of ... the last 10 days or so finally has another chapter. Ever since rapper Meek Mill accused Canadian unicorn Drake of using a ghostwriter, the two have been embroiled in a highly amusing feud. Drake responded with not one, but two diss tracks directed at Meek; after the second dropped, Meek took an entire day to craft his rebuttal, which, in the age of Twitter, is basically forever.

    Nvidia is voluntarily recalling its SHIELD 8-inch gaming tablet. The company announced on Friday morning that it's issuing a voluntary recall of all SHIELD tablets sold between July of 2014 and July of 2015 over safety concerns. Apparently the battery can overheat and pose a fire hazard.

  • Contrary To What You've Heard, TPP Will Undermine US Law -- Including Supreme Court Decisions

    Mike Masnick
    31 Jul 2015 | 3:05 am
    One of the key lines of pure unadulterated bullshit spread by the USTR concerning the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement is that it won't lead to significant changes in US law. That's just wrong. As KEI points out, it's pretty clear that the current text would completely undermine key Supreme Court rulings concerning state sovereign immunity from intellectual property disputes. Zack Struver and Tazio De Tomassi created a short video explaining why: The specific issue is that, under the 11th Amendment to the Constitution, state governments are given "sovereign immunity" from most legal…
  • Feds Hand Out Funds To Be Used For 'Traffic Safety;' Local Agencies Buy License Plate Readers Instead

    Tim Cushing
    30 Jul 2015 | 11:02 pm
    The National Highway Transportation Safety Association (NHTSA) is supposed to be focused on one thing: safety. For crying out loud, it's right in the middle of its cumbersome name. But the federal funding it hands out to state and local governments is being used for surveillance devices with no discernible "safety" purpose: automatic license plate readers. The NHTSA is funding license plate readers for highway safety purposes only, but it’s far from clear how law enforcement agencies are interpreting this and whether they are using the funding to buy license plate readers for non-safety…
  • DailyDirt: Colonizing Space

    Michael Ho
    30 Jul 2015 | 5:00 pm
    There have been several proposals for manned missions to Mars. Some proposals include a colony; most don't. It's obvious that animals have evolved to live on Earth and not in space, and it will take quite a bit of adjustment to get comfortable in a space colony of any kind -- whether it exists on the moon or Mars or just floats around somewhere in between. In any case, if we're serious about visiting other planets, we'll need to figure out how to survive the journey (and pay for it). Here are just a few links on the topic of colonizing space, even though no one has a complete plan for how to…

    Tim Cushing
    30 Jul 2015 | 3:21 pm
    Late in 2013, the LA Times published information from applications processed by the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department that showed the agency was generally unconcerned by past misconduct and illegal behavior by applicants -- especially if those applicants were former police officers or prison guards. This is the government's other revolving door, one that ensures a bad cop won't stay jobless for long. The local police union and members of the Sheriff's Department tried to get a court to agree to some prior restraint in hopes of preventing this information from being made public. According to…

    Mike Masnick
    30 Jul 2015 | 1:55 pm
    What is it with judges and prior restraint lately? A judge in a Los Angeles Superior Court has issued a temporary restraining order blocking an anti-abortion group from releasing a video. And, yes, obviously, anything involving abortion is going to be controversial, no matter what your stance on the issue is -- and this also involves the same group that made plenty of headlines recently over some other videos involving Planned Parenthood. I'm hoping that folks here will pay attention to the First Amendment issue, rather than get into any sort of ideological argument over the parties involved…

Each year, the Earth’s forests take up about one-quarter of the carbon dioxide emitted by humans, effectively slowing the speed and severity of global warming. They lock up most of this carbon in their stems and keep it there for centuries. This service that they provide to humanity is worth about US$1 trillion each year.Read more...

    31 Jul 2015 | 5:30 am
    When it comes to raw acceleration relative to price, you’d be hard pressed to come up with a car as impressive as the Tesla Model S P85D. With a push of a button, Tesla’s upper-tier model can go from 0-60 mph in just 3.2 seconds flat. Fittingly, Tesla calls this mode Insane Mode. But as any physics student could tell you, acceleration and speed aren’t the same thing. So while the performance edition of the Model S is an absolute beast getting off the line, that doesn’t necessarily translate into being the most impressive car on the track, speed wise.

    Guns are used to shoot people, and are typically meant to shoot with lethal force. In fact trying to disarm someone by shooting them in the arm or leg can sometimes lead to permanent damage. That being said, it looks like the US military is said to be working on a non-lethal gun that can emit a 130-decibel noise.This noise level is said to be equivalent to the sound of standing behind a fighter jet taking off from an aircraft carrier, and if you’ve seen the videos which are already pretty loud as it is, you can only imagine how loud and painful it must be if you were to do so in real-life.

We sit there for the entirety of an evening, enduring several overly-confident singers going for those high ballad notes, and even worse, the plastered college guys who think it’s funny to botch “Barbie Girl”. When it’s finally my chance to go, the glory moments are… Continue…
  • Singapore just made augmented reality stamps a real thing

    Augmented and virtual reality tech is growing more popular by the minute. The difference between the two — if you don’t already know — is one takes place in a completely digital world while the other merges digital elements with that of the real world. Unlike VR tech, augmented reality devices allow you to interact with the real world in unique ways. Take modern AR apps for smartphones as an example. Yelp Monocle uses a combination of the device’s GPS and an internal compass to display nearby attractions such as restaurants, stores, bars and more. Google’s Ingress is one of the most…

    8 Jul 2015 | 9:09 am
    Janet Echelman isn’t your typical artist. Far from the traditional image of a lone painter standing at her easel with only a brush and paint palette, she works in conjunction with entire teams to build enormous public art displays. Her sculptures, which hang from metropolitan skyscrapers throughout the world, are formed using a variety of traditional nautical techniques, a creative eye and cutting-edge technology. Echelman, a classically trained artist, began experimenting with net sculptures while visiting a fishing village in India. She uses a variety of woven fabrics and lights to create…
  • Why attempt home automation yourself when you can have a pro do it for you? (Post sponsored by URC)

    We know the standard answer to the question in the headline: Because it’s cheaper. But is it really? Now, if you’re an endless tinkerer and do-it-yourselfer, more power to you. If you like to fix your own plumbing and electrical, do your own landscaping, install your own cabinetry, pave your own driveway, or do your own taxes, we respect and appreciate that. Heck, you can buy a titanium replacement hip online if you’d like to install one yourself. The question is, should you? While DIYing can seem to sometimes save money up front and be a satisfying endeavor, the fact remains that…

  • Commerce Dept. Caves on Security Export Rules

    30 Jul 2015 | 11:56 am
    Some proposed federal rules on the export of security tools created a tumult in cybersecurity circles -- a tumult that's pushed the rules into limbo. The comment period for the rules, which the U.S. Department of Commerce first aired in May, ended July 20 -- and although the regulations have noble intentions, they also could have dire consequences. "We don't believe we need these rules," said Cheri McGuire, vice president for global government affairs and cybersecurity policy at Symantec.

    Microsoft on Wednesday began offering Windows 10 as a free upgrade to Windows 7 and 8 users in 190 countries. Eligible users began receiving taskbar notifications, beckoning them to begin the migration to Windows 10. To encourage migration, Microsoft has asked the first flock of digital pilgrims to use the hashtag #UpgradeYourWorld and to tag a nonprofit organization to their posts. The one that receives the most votes will be designated as the 10th nonprofit in the program, and it will receive $500,000 and other support from Microsoft.

    John P. Mello Jr.
    29 Jul 2015 | 2:48 pm
    Collecting health and fitness data through wearable devices is raising concerns among consumers about the security of that information. Twenty-five percent of more than 3,500 consumers who participated in a recent survey did not believe their personal health data was safe on fitness trackers or in health-tracking apps, reported Healthline. Considering the recent headlines about health info data breaches, such as those at Anthem and the UCLA Medical School, that percentage may be a bit surprising.

    Motorola, on Tuesday launched three new handsets -- Moto X Style, Moto X Play and a refreshed Moto G -- designed to end the "one-sided relationships" between smartphones and consumers. People have been living with phones that nag during drives, make outbursts during meetings, and run out of juice just when they're most needed, the company said. Adding insult to injury, they are often mismatched with their owners' style and character. Motorola promised its newly introduced suitors will change all that.

  • A “Faces Of DEF CON” Clique?

    Bill Brenner
    15 Jul 2015 | 5:25 am
    Recently on Twitter, infosec pro Marcus Carey voiced his dislike for all the “Faces of DEF CON” avatars people are using. Specifically, he said every time he sees one he wants to unfollow the person. Asked why, he opined that it was “infosec clique culture at its finest.” I responded that I was keeping my own avatar and that he could go ahead and unfollow me. It was an honor to be included in the “Faces of DEF CON” series by artist and fellow infosec pro Eddie “EddieTheYeti” Mize, I told him. He unfollowed me (he later re-followed) and asked…

A moment of reflection if ever there was one. It occurred to me that Liquidmatrix just had it’s 17th birthday this past February. That is a helluva long time for a website of any description. It has been a lot of fun to see the site grow from an insanely (ugly) basic HTML site to a heavily trafficked site with multiple members either writing and podcasting. I’ve been making a lot of architectural changes to the site and now, I’m…

    Soon, in various publications, articles will appear with advice for folks attending Black Hat and DEF CON for the first time. Advice for newbies is important, and I’ve written my own survival guide for that over the years. But for this post, I’m speaking to the battle-hardened veterans who have made the journey repeatedly over the years. Having attended too many of these to count, I consider myself a veteran. Or, to put it another way, I consider myself among the jaded. “Jaded” is a negative word. It’s typically used to describe someone who is burned out and no longer impressed with…

Family members took to social media to say that his prognosis wasn’t looking good; that he wasn’t expected to survive. But thanks to excellent medical care, prayer and what is surely a strong will to live, Stepto — director of hacker success at HackerOne — seems to have made it through the storm. Saturday, his family posted an update saying he was awake and breathing without help from a tube. “Although he is very weak, he has been…

    In Association with TV Furniture Direct  After last week’s news that Ikea’s MALM drawers killed two toddlers in separate incidents, industries have gone into overdrive about re-affirming the safety of their products or adapting them to be safer.Ikea’s own advice is to use wall-anchoring kits to prevent tip over hazards, but a fact that was overlooked was that over 70% of fatal injuries from tip overs are caused by TVs and furniture that is supporting a TV. But how severe is this problem? Well, newly released figures from the CPSC (consumer product safety commission) actually paint…

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

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

    I wish we have traffic signals where cut-out cats pop-up on the road. No more plain red lights. Let me explain.To anyone who has travelled on Indian roads, this should be pretty obvious; to others, it might sound fatally amusing. One thing that vehicle drivers in India seem inherently incapable of doing is stopping before the white lines drawn at traffic signals (that is if they decide to stop in the first place).Thankfully, there is ONE thing that can stop almost all of them: cats. A cat crossing ones path is considered inauspicious (to put it mildly) and Indians would do anything to avoid…

  • Why '80s Babies Are Different Than Other Millennials

    31 Jul 2015 | 4:50 am
    Anyone born in the late '70s or early '80s probably has memories of huddling around a bulky desktop with five (or more) friends to play Oregon Trail. This article, titled "The Oregon Trail Generation: Life Before and After Mainstream Tech" and originally featured on Social Media Week, discusses what life was like for that generation who grew up at the cusp of modern technology. We're an enigma, those of us born at the tail end of the '70s and the start of the '80s. Some of the "generational" experts lazily glob us on to Generation X, and others just shove us over to the Millennials they love…

  • J.K. Rowling Did Something Remarkable For a Young Fan Who Was Dying

    30 Jul 2015 | 6:30 pm
    Source: Warner Bros. As if your heart weren't already full of love for Harry Potter, this resurfacing story will take it over the edge. Back in 1999, when J.K. Rowling was in the middle of writing The Goblet of Fire, the author received a fan letter. It came from Anne Kidder, the family friend of 9-year-old Natalie who was dying of leukemia in Canada and the ultimate Potterhead. The books "had been her respite from the hell of leukemia," Kidder told Maclean's, a Canadian magazine, in 2000. "And because I'm the sort of person who thinks there must be something I can do, I badgered Rowling's…
  • This iPhone 6S Concept Is Everything You've Dreamed of

    30 Jul 2015 | 5:30 pm
    You've already seen elaborate iPhone 6S (or 7?) concept art, but this version by German site Computer Bild is downright impressive. Complete with a glowing Apple logo - à la older-generation MacBooks - and a button that blends with the rest of its wide screen, this imagined new iPhone is definitely something we could imagine carrying. Computer Bild's concept is sleek (and frankly a little sexy), so give its detailed video a gander.

    There are several challenges for national law enforcement authorities working in the global cyberspace, including the collection of evidence in the cloud, a topic that was the focus of the Council of Europe’s recent Octopus Conference on Cooperation against Cybercrime. One participant, a representative of a law enforcement authority in a small European country, spoke of his difficulty to obtain evidence to investigate local criminal activity when such evidence is in the form of digital communications stored in cloud servers based in the United States.

    Xavier Bettel, Prime Minister, Luxembourg Last week, Microsoft partnered with POLITICO to host the first Annual Cybersecurity Summit. The event comes at a key moment in time. Cybersecurity has never been higher on the political agenda in the EU and globally. And with good reason. This month’s cyber-attack on the U.S. Federal Government personnel office, which led to the information of around 4 million federal workers being stolen, is unfortunately not an isolated incident. This event reminds us once again of the importance of governments and companies ensuring the highest levels of…

    In November of last year, the high-profile hacking of Sony Pictures Entertainment resulted in the mass release of confidential information and the disruption of IT systems. This widely publicized event is one of many where a government has been accused of a damaging cyberattack. Therein lies the discontinuity. While cybercriminals of course act in disregard of the common good, governments are supposed to be different. Governments are supposed to protect the national security, public safety and economic prosperity of their own citizens and, even further, they are supposed to promote…

    Apple might as well just give up on coming out with an iPhone 6S or iPhone 7 after that, uh, devastating quarterly report in which it beat analysts’ estimates, saw earnings rise 38% and boasted of market share gains – only to see its stock price plummet. But let’s assume they’re going to keep plugging ahead. Solar power to the rescue In of the most breathless posts we’ve come across in some time, the Express out of the UK reports that “The Apple iPhone 7 might NEVER need to be recharged” (their CAPITALIZATION).

    Sad news swirled through my circle of friends this past week when we learned that old friend Hartley Rogers, Jr., had passed away at the age of 89.And when I say old friend, I mean it. When I met Hartley, back in 1988, he was in his 60s and me and most of my friends were in their 20s. But we were united with Hartley as part of a group assembled by a Harvard University coach to row at the Henley Royal Regatta in England (I did not attend Harvard, but most of my Henley crew mates did).

PIcture Source My colleague David Short has long been concerned about the hacking potential on "digital cars", as all intelligent devices in a car typically share the same databus, and as they become more wired to "the grid" the probability of hacking will grow, whereas so far the probability of manufacturers to take preventative measures is at best static.

    One of the key lines of pure unadulterated bullshit spread by the USTR concerning the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement is that it won't lead to significant changes in US law. That's just wrong. As KEI points out, it's pretty clear that the current text would completely undermine key Supreme Court rulings concerning state sovereign immunity from intellectual property disputes. Zack Struver and Tazio De Tomassi created a short video explaining why: The specific issue is that, under the 11th Amendment to the Constitution, state governments are given "sovereign immunity" from most legal…
  • Feds Hand Out Funds To Be Used For 'Traffic Safety;' Local Agencies Buy License Plate Readers Instead

    The National Highway Transportation Safety Association (NHTSA) is supposed to be focused on one thing: safety. For crying out loud, it's right in the middle of its cumbersome name. But the federal funding it hands out to state and local governments is being used for surveillance devices with no discernible "safety" purpose: automatic license plate readers. The NHTSA is funding license plate readers for highway safety purposes only, but it’s far from clear how law enforcement agencies are interpreting this and whether they are using the funding to buy license plate readers for non-safety…

    There have been several proposals for manned missions to Mars. Some proposals include a colony; most don't. It's obvious that animals have evolved to live on Earth and not in space, and it will take quite a bit of adjustment to get comfortable in a space colony of any kind -- whether it exists on the moon or Mars or just floats around somewhere in between. In any case, if we're serious about visiting other planets, we'll need to figure out how to survive the journey (and pay for it). Here are just a few links on the topic of colonizing space, even though no one has a complete plan for how to…

    Late in 2013, the LA Times published information from applications processed by the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department that showed the agency was generally unconcerned by past misconduct and illegal behavior by applicants -- especially if those applicants were former police officers or prison guards. This is the government's other revolving door, one that ensures a bad cop won't stay jobless for long.

    30 Jul 2015 | 3:29 pm
    Microsoft started rolling out Windows 10, its shiny new operating system from 29th of July and there have been reports of bugs and issues with installing the Windows 10 operating system on PC/Laptops. Of course, with new OS come new error messages but this one takes the cake. Question time: which mail application of which operating system has a dialog that reads "bummer"? Your prize will be a firm handshake, to be administered by yourself or by whoever is standing closest to you.
  • Haiku Media Kit: new and old pieces

    Hello, it has been some time since my last article, in the meantime I continued to improve things out and since I changed some important parts of the media_kit, I think it's correct to notify the community about new and 'old' features added recently. This is an article mostly written for application developers, but I tried to explain the improvements made with simple words so I hope it will be interesting to anyone. Of all the alternative operating systems from the golden days (2000-2005 or so), Haiku is one of the very few - possibly the only one - still going strong. And by "going strong" I…
  • Next version of Google Glass aimed at the workplace

    30 Jul 2015 | 3:14 pm
    Google may soon offer a new version of its Google Glass wearable later this fall. A new report says that the company will keep the hype down on this release, as it plans to offer it to businesses working in healthcare, manufacturing, and energy. Like I said over a year ago: No, I think the real value of Glass lies in an entirely different area Google seems to have been ignoring so far. It's a far less sexy area than the world of designer glasses and paragliders, but one that offers far, far more potential: 'traditional' workplaces. Construction. Road works. Law enforcement. The military.
  • Tablet market keeps shrinking

    The latest numbers from market research firm IDC's Worldwide Quarterly Tablet Tracker show that Apple remains the largest vendor in a declining tablet market, shipping 10.9 million iPads in the second quarter of 2015. While the iPad continues to be the best-selling tablet, its worldwide market share fell below 25% as Apple faced increased competition from low-cost rivals Lenovo, Huawei and LG. With phones hitting 5.5-6.0" now, there's very little need for tablets.

He's also surprisingly blunt when he characterizes Windows Phone 7 and Windows Phone 8, products he was intimately involved in developing. "We've had a couple of, sort of, practice runs with phone and PC," Belfiore says, before pivoting to the presumably brighter future with Windows 10, "We now have all the devices lined up.

    In an effort to unite the Windows Eco-system across a variety of hardware Microsoft has made many changes to make "Windows 10" work on the majority of devices out there, even ones with age-old hardware specification. To see exactly how well the new operating-system goes on with old hardware, Softpedia performed a quick test of installing and using Windows 10 on a 7-year-old Acer Aspire One powered by Intel Atom N450 processor clocked at 1.66 GHz, 1 GB of RAM, and a 320 GB hard disk. The results were quite surprising, the total installation took just 15 minutes from a USB drive and Windows 10…

    29 Jul 2015 | 6:34 am
    Because I’ve blogged a rather long time, I now have the privilege to point back to things written long ago (as history is so prone to repeat itself). For instance, five years ago, I shared my theory that the products Google constantly releases fall into two categories: the “Lucy Google” product or the “Pigpen Google” product. I point to that earlier post because of the failure of Google+ as a product (but a failure that contains many products that IMHO, once freed from the social networking shackles of Google+ will be successful), If you are wondering what I…

    Now that Google has moved Google Photos away from Google+ and has tied it into Google Drive, Google has started adding all sorts of features I plan to blog about later. However, this feature roll-out was announced yesterday and is worth a special shout-out. (I’m a fan-boy of Google Maps.) As described by the Google Maps blog, the “Time Line” feature on Google Maps will not only let you tie location information to a Google Map, if you use Google Photos, it will display those on the timeline and map, as well. A similar “photo-on-map” feature has been on Flickr…

If you are among the 12 people who read this blog, I don’t need to catch you up. South Carolina did the right thing. Other states should follow. And, members of the U.S. House of Representatives should also. From the Washington Post story, “As S.C. prepares to lower battle flag, Boehner calls for Confederate review,” comes this quote that…

Old People At Bonnaroo from Funny Or Die   In addition to being blatantly ageist bigotry, the premise seems to fall apart when you consider that Funny or Die’s criteria for being an “old person” is being born before 1946. By that definition, here are some other cute old people they could have…

    Data is eating me alive. Every gadget these days can shoot photos and record video. The move to smaller but faster SSDs hasn't helped with storage. I captured 275GB of photos and videos on my last trip. Just one trip! And I'm just a hobbyist photographer with a mere 12MP camera. If you shoot with any regularity and a 20MP+ camera you'll easily be clocking more than a terabyte a year. Where on earth do normal people store that much data?

    As a portrait and fashion photographer I rarely have to worry about weather because I’m usually shooting in studio and controlling the lighting and environment. However, when I travel I become a travel/landscape photographer and just let me admit that it’s way way way more challenging. The 3rd stop on my Adobe tour took me to Hong Kong. Since it was my first trip to Hong Kong and I had plenty of time (a week) I was in no rush to go out shooting on day one. I arrived late Friday evening and on Saturday it looked like the shot above.

With a beautiful view of the harbor I decided to shoot a time-lapse. Since I don’t shoot time-lapse very often I Googled “best time-lapse settings”. Most of the result offered pretty much the same…

  • Aperlite YH-500N Review: A Great Low Cost Speedlight for Nikon & Canon Photographers

    Speedlights are great for being able to light your subject on location. You get a portable, battery operated solution that with the right modifiers can be a great asset. The only problem is that the name brand speedlights by Nikon and Canon cost hundreds of dollars. This makes it hard to justify buying two or three of them. My main speedlight is a Nikon SB910 and it’s currently going for $546.95 at B&H. That price point puts them in the range of studio strobes. At the end of the day you need a good light that works with the functions of your camera such as TTL, and doesn’t eat…

    When Microsoft bought out the mobility division of Nokia, the question loomed large over the long term impact the same would have in terms of what would, once the giants of the mobile industry, do in order to run the books. It was widely claimed that Nokia would now focus on the maps, new technologies and the telecom solutions segment rather than the old phone business. Since then, we have seen a Nokia branded tablet, a launcher, few improvements to the Here maps and more. However, in terms of absolute new hardware and vertical, for the first time since the Microsoft takeover happened, Nokia…

    ‘What? Sony already released the Xperia Z4 that we are hearing about the Z5?’ If the above was your reaction to the story that is already talking about the successor of the highly convoluted Sony Xperia Z4, then you are definitely not the only one. We were just as surprised to learn about the possibility of a Z5 when it has not been absolutely clear whether Sony ever brought the Z4 to the party. For the most people, the Xperia Z4 was the Xperia Z3 Plus the way it was announced in India. It was a minor upgrade and one you saw Sony release very half-heartedly, barely pumping any…

The first development is labelled ‘camera-based advanced front lighting system.’ It is based on older technology; an adaptive lighting system and traffic sign recognition. It interpreted traffic signs and used GPS information to broaden the headlight’s reach on corners and at traffic circles. In the absence of GPS data, the new technology uses cameras to identify…

    21 Jul 2015 | 7:45 am
    It may feel like Facebook is constantly rolling out updates, but their latest News Feed update is the biggest change they’ve made in a long time. The update is supposed to be helpful to users, but in the process it might hinder your company’s outreach efforts. What the Change Is Since its inception, the Facebook News Feed has gone through many changes. Originally, it was a timeline that listed items based on when they were posted, with no filter for the content at all. Later, it evolved to News Feed that relies on an algorithm to determine what the user wants to see first. Now, Facebook…
  • Why You Should Use Image Optimization

    20 Jul 2015 | 7:47 am
    An important part of both your search engine optimization (SEO) and visitor satisfaction is optimizing your images. Images that aren’t optimized can affect your site’s load time, as well as your ranking in search engine results. Optimizing for Load Time It’s no secret that a web page with a lot of images, including gifs, often takes longer to load than a web page that’s only made up of text. It’s also no secret that web pages without images aren’t very interesting to look at. How can you avoid a load time that will turn people away while also having enough images to keep them…

If you laugh at these antics, and the robot can see your face, it will quite likely giggle along with you.

    Chronic pain is cited as the number one reason why Americans visit a physician. It is a leading cause of disability and is a major contributor to healthcare costs. In fact, chronic pain affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined. According to a 2011 report from the Institute of Medicine (part of the National Academy of Sciences), chronic pain affects more than 100 million American adults. Both chronic pain and prescription opioid abuse are quite prevalent in the United States and continue to exact a heavy toll on patients and physicians. Individuals with chronic…

Implementing the Affordable Care Act will be meaningless unless the U.S. finds ways to reduce overwhelming health care costs without sacrificing the quality of care and improving access for patients.

    Meghann Kiernan
    26 Jul 2015 | 10:53 pm
    Regular screening increases the chances of detecting certain cancers early, when they are most likely to be curable. However, screening strategies vary in intensity and value. Many people have a lack of understanding about the trade-offs of screening. Studies report that patients and many physicians overestimate the benefits and are unaware of and/or downplay the potential harms of cancer screening. High intensity screening strategies are not necessarily high value care. In a paper published recently in the Annals of Internal Medicine, the American College of Physicians (ACP) issued advice…

    Fibromyalgia is a long term condition characterized by widespread pain in the muscles and soft tissues surrounding the joints throughout the body. Reports from the National Fibromyalgia Association show that about 10 million people in the United States suffer from this condition. Even though this condition affects both men and women, about 80-90 percent of cases account for women (mostly middle-aged women). The most common symptom associated with this condition is widespread pain that may initially begin in one area of the body such as the neck or shoulders and eventually spread to the entire…
  • Medical Coding for Burns in the Emergency Department

    Julie Clements
    21 Jul 2015 | 10:22 pm
    It is very important to remain very cautious when coding for burns in an emergency setting. This is mainly because the medical coding rules and regulations for burn care are complex, are subject to change often and errors can cause big revenue loss to your practice. When it comes to proper coding, you should use the right diagnostic codes, CPT codes and evaluation and management (E/M) codes with the correct modifiers. ICD-9 Diagnostic Codes 940: Burn confined to eye and adnexa 941: Burn of face head and neck 942: Burn of trunk 943: Burn of upper limb except wrist and hand 944: Burn of…

    Part of the job of a technical author is to edit, review, read and understand articles that people have written. So you get a feeling for what works and what doesn’t. The primary conclusion I have drawn from this is that simplicity is key. Simplicity makes things quicker to read. It makes them easier to remember and increases the satisfaction level of the reader. Sounds like simplicity is good, can you go too far? Before you can simplify you need to have a clear understanding of what you are trying to say in the first place. You can oversimplify by leaving out essential information and not…

    I recently was at a customer that used a build depot for Windows OS deployment to new and previously used computers before they were delivered to employees’ offices. The depot enabled the customer to build up to 100 computers a day and the customer had the peace of mind knowing that every computer being built was getting the same Windows image and applications.  This process has been in place for well over a decade and had been accepted by employees as the standard process for receiving their computer.

    Chances are, in an average day, you are not accomplishing as many tasks as you would like … and neither are your colleagues or your employees. What is mystifying about that statement is that it seems today’s workforce is putting in more hours and more effort than ever before coinciding with an increased adoption of IT devices and applications designed to improve user productivity. In fact, this has been a key driver for organizations to enable workforce mobility – to provide flexibility in accessing business IT resources (applications, data, email, and other services) from any device at…

The cloud edition of Microsoft’s broadly adopted business productivity suite – which bundles such popular packages as Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, and Microsoft Outlook – has been both heavily praised and heavily criticized since its introduction in 2011. While the adoption rate of the traditional software edition of Microsoft Office is currently in no danger of being overtaken by its cloud-hosted cousin, recent adoption rates for Office 365 have substantially accelerated.

    What front-end developers do, what it is like to be a member of the female minority studying computer science, whether there are going to be more women in IT and if books should be read twice – I’m talking to Paulina Żmijewska, Front-end Developer at Goyello, involved in the Webmerce and BarberBooking projects.Paulina, how did it happen that you started working at Goyello?I came here when I was still at the university.

  • The Art of Performance tuning and Optimization

    6 Jul 2015 | 7:44 am
    About 2500 years ago there lived a brilliant Chinese military strategist, general Sun Tzu. His life’s work was a book entitled “The  Art of War”. It is full of ideas or in a way design patterns for winning small to large-scale conflicts in the most optimal ways.Even though the book is now 25 centuries old it still inspires leaders in our times. Sun Tzu believed that one of the better ways to win a war was to avoid a fight in a clever way. In our beloved software industry there are actually quite a few who believe the same. You may have heard that the best code is the one you never…

    So, you are a tester? You play games all day long then!Well, not really. Since I started working as a software tester I’ve been hearing this opinion again and again. Most people are convinced testers do nothing else but test computer games, which for them means they play all day long at work. They couldn’t be more wrong!Testers work not only for game dev companies. They work in IT departments of companies operating in various sectors. They can also be found in software solution houses, like Goyello. And even if they work for game dev companies, you may be surprised to hear their work is…

Angular 2 looks like a completely different framework: no controllers*, no DDO, no $scope, no angular.module and completely rewritten binding and change detection (no ng-model).Although Angular 2 is still work in progress many new features have already been revealed.

Now, in order to understand why that is a seriously powerful endorsement, you need to know that in general my opinion of PUAs is somewhere below contempt. I have written on this before, and I will now go on a little detour to explain what I think is wrong with PUAs in general.

And yet; there remains an unfulfilled level of pride. And as the Evil Empire of Evildoers well know, Arrogant pride in our Evilness is basically a requirement.

    This has made it onto the top 10 films I have ever seen. When searching for the image above, I also came across the fact that the average review for it is very poor, between one and three stars, which initially (and stupidly) shocked me. This film is truly amazing and or a variety of reasons, but primary amongst them is that it is a very real portrayal of what happens when Political Correctness becomes the ideology of the day. And yes, I really do mean that, and yes, the emphasis on Political Correctness is indeed on Political. But do not be fooled. What you think is harmless garden variety…

Most companies’ efforts, therefore, are centered on the development and optimization of new products and/or services. Developing a superior product, however, is only half the picture. For a new product/service to be adopted, consumers have to be willing to part with an existing product/service/behavior.

When I first moved to Chicago seven years ago, Ulta dominated the market, and I suppose that makes sense given it is a Chicago-based company. When I ventured into Ulta for the first time, just to explore, I remember that being the moment when my floodgates of makeup-crazed girly-ness opened. Yes, they carried some of the drugstore brands in one section of the store, all very familiar thanks to my teen years, but to the…

However, when we see our favorite product sitting on the store shelf in a fun new package (right next to the package we’ve always bought), and it costs a little more than we’re used to paying, we’re still pretty likely to put that in our cart – and we’re savvy enough to know that the product inside is exactly same as…

    31 Jul 2015 | 1:57 am
    Once upon a time all websites were either a .com, a .net or a .org. That is far from the case anymore. New top-level domains are being released all the time, like .golf or .gold. That leaves business owners with questions—and often, misconceptions. How does Google handle these new domains? Are they better or worse for your SEO? Should you move your site to a new one, or have sites using several of them? To answer these questions Google has released a new FAQ page. Here’s everything you need to know about their answers, and our recommendations on how to use domains. Google…

    Google knows when you are sleeping, it knows when you’re awake… or pretty close. Google may not have that information just yet, but it does know where you are at all times. And their latest Google Maps feature lets you use that data yourself. Google Maps “Timeline” The new feature is called Timeline and it’s built into Google Maps on both the desktop and Android versions (no iPhone yet). It shows you any location you’ve ever been—in an easy to use time-lapse map. What does that look like? When you choose the “Timeline” option within…

    Starting about two weeks ago, websites of all sizes across many industries saw a troubling trend: a major drop in their search traffic from Bing. While traffic can vacillate for many reasons, as the days wore on webmasters and SEO consultants did not see it bounce back. Rumors began to spread. So what happened, and should you be worried?

    The Noctua NH-D15 is one hell of a CPU cooler. The improvements over the NH-D14 is appreciated since it allows installation of taller heatspreaders. But when I reviewed motherboards like Gigabyte X99-UD4, I found that the space between the CPU cooler and the first PCIe x16 slot is non-existent when I mounted Zotac GTX 780Ti Extreme AMP! Edition. Yikes!!! At that point, I felt that motherboard makers should be more ‘friendly’ with larger CPU cooler especially with an Intel X99 platform with up to 4x PCIe x16 slots. Yeah right. Easier said than done with an ATX form factor. Noctua…

The CPU cooler can accommodate up to 2x 140 x 140 x 25mm fans, but with a choice of a single fan, you can either mount it towards the top for having high clearance required for tall spreaders and even maybe some sinks on the motherboard (you’ll be surprised). I am keen on reviewing this since this does provide some level of low-profile height with a full-size heatsink design, making it look good even for few small form factor DIY desktop systems.

Also: the corruption and mishandling of state workers’ and private sector workers’ pension and health insurance funds. Those are the problems begging to be solved. There’s no problem either with non-registration of SIM cards. The real problem lies in the failure of authorities to use all tools at their disposal to dismantle, arrest, and prosecute syndicates.

    California’s cap-and-trade program brings in money when carbon allowances are auctioned.  A lot of money – about $1.49 billion in the current fiscal year alone, the state said last week. The law requires that “the state invest at least 10 percent of the auction proceeds within the most disadvantaged communities and at least 25 percent of the proceeds be invested to benefit these communities.”And that’s why Roy Rivera, a disabled man who lives on a fixed income in Sacramento, now has solar on his roof – and more than 1,600 similarly low-income households will as well.California…

    As far as operating systems are concerned, Windows is perhaps the least reliant on the command line. In fact, most of us have managed to get this far without ever once using it. But with Windows 10 around the corner, maybe it’s about time we learned. But before you jump into it, there’s one significant difference that you need to understand, and that’s the difference between Command Prompt and PowerShell. They look pretty similar on the surface, but in practice are vastly unlike each other. Here’s what you need to know about the two. The Command Prompt Came First…

The second most important factor is whether you need to maintain any animations and transitions that might be included in the inserted presentation. Depending on how you want the inserted slides to appear in the main presentation, you will need…

I’ve written many articles in the past about defragmenting your hard drive, the boot sector, the paging file and even the registry. During the days of Windows XP, defragging was necessary and it made a significant difference in performance. Over time, many companies started selling third party defragging tools that supposedly did the job faster, better and more accurately. Some were…

    Five men with complete motor paralysis have regained the ability to move their legs voluntarily and produce step-like movements after being treated with a non-invasive form of spinal cord stimulation. The new treatment builds on prior work to generate voluntary movements in paralyzed people through electrical stimulation – in particular, two studies (one completed in 2011, the other in 2014) that involved surgically implanting an electrode array on the spinal cord. This time, however, the researchers found success without performing any invasive surgery... Continue Reading Non-invasive…

  • Build a Grid Layout For WordPress Using WP_Query

    John Morris
    16 Jul 2015 | 4:25 am
    Here’s how to build a grid layout for WordPress via shortcodes and WP_Query: A lot of WordPress developers immediately rush to query_posts in order to create custom loops.

    Now send Whatsapp messages from Google Now Remember when Google Now added the feature to send text messages with a voice command? Yeah. Remember when text messaging was cool? Probably not. Earlier, the fix to this was to make Whatsapp your default messaging app. Not quite convenient if you ask me. However, in the latest update (i.e., the one that came just a couple of hours before the time of writing this), Google now has rolled out a new feature where users can send messages to any of their contacts via Whatsapp/Telegram/Some Other Messaging Clients I never bothered to download.

  • Top Reasons Why Print Marketing is Still Relevant in the Digital Era

    Chethan Thimmappa
    14 Apr 2015 | 7:56 am
    Even if living in a digital era has lead us to communicate via text or email and to advertise via mobile devices or the web, print marketing is more important than ever. Marketers have realized that branded print material should be an integral part of any marketing mix. Therefore, in order to be successful, businesses shouldn’t fail to include valuable print marketing tools such as flyers (which you can order at very affordable prices online, like you can do here), brochures, catalogs, newsletters and business cards in their offline marketing channels. Business should rely on an offline…

    Microsoft’s insider program has given access to early build of Windows 10 for phones for few registered insiders. Since then, it is raining screenshots  of Windows 10 (for phones) from different Windows communities across the web. Seems like this is turning out to be the next wave.

    The significance of a ravishing UX is absolutely amazing; thus, the apps or sites boasting a high end UX design are often a more sustainable product. And, this is for sure that a wonderful UI design greatly contributes to a remarkable UX while enhancing the credibility of a product.

  • Look. Samsung Also Has its Own Android-powered Flip Phone Too

    31 Jul 2015 | 3:28 am
    We knew it! Samsung will not just sit and watch its rival rolls out an awesome Android-flavored flip phone that everybody wants. No way that’s going to happen and so, this other South Korean electronics juggernaut is quick to introduce its own Android clamshell handset which it calls Galaxy Folder. A very apt name, isn’t it? As you know, the phone folds. If folding phone users have any care about specs, they’d be glad that Folder is a little ‘sexier’ on the spec-sheet, which includes a larger 3.8-inch touch display with 480 by 800 resolution, double the RAM at 2GB, a…

    A lighter is an essential item when heading into the wild, but in case you are not comfortable with carrying a mini fuel tank around, perhaps the good’ol flint and steel combination may be the way to go. More so, if the said flint and steel comes with a survival paracord braided into a convenient to carry and uber stylish bracelet or keychain, like Bomber Barrel’s Firestarter Paracord Bracelet and Keychain with Carabiner. The Firestarter Paracord Bracelet’s flint and steel also serves as the bracelet’s ‘clasp’, which is actually a pretty clever idea, while the cord itself is of…

    According to a song, “life in plastic, is fantastic” (know which song it is?), well, I guess that might be true soon, but not as a Barbie doll. Rather, it is the roads that our cars rolled on that could be plastic instead of the regular, environmentally unfriendly asphalt. That’s if VolkerWessels has their way. The Dutch construction company is exploring using recycled plastic bottles to create hollow plastic road. The plastic roads not only will save landfills from being piled with plastic wastes, but they are also resistant to corrosion and weather, can deal with extreme temperatures,…

    Clearly, ruggedized gadgets aren’t meant for regular consumers. They are mainly geared at people who expects a lot of bad things to happen to the gadget, such as places like construction site, around some glacier and the likes. If you happen to be in the said places, or anywhere that may expose your tablet to dire situations, then DELL’s first fully rugged tablet, Latitude 12, may be a welcoming proposition and one that’s looking rather neat.

      “And thus the lazy grasshopper learnt its lesson from the ant”. Getting your nostalgia kindled? Do you still remember those Amarchitrakhatas and Panchantra story books? My childhood was filled with these stories either being heard from elders or read them fondly. These days we neither have elders at home who willfully say such stories nor these so called “books”.

  • Robotic insect that can jump off of water’s surface

    30 Jul 2015 | 10:43 pm
    The concept of walking on water might sound supernatural, but in fact it is a quite natural phenomenon. Many small living creatures leverage water’s surface tension to maneuver themselves around. One of the most complex maneuvers, jumping on water, is achieved by a species of semi-aquatic insects called water striders that not only skim along water’s surface but also generate enough upward thrust with their legs to launch themselves airborne from it. Now, emulating this natural form of water-based locomotion, an international team of scientists from Seoul National University,…

    While lasers were invented in 1960 and are commonly used in many applications, one characteristic of the technology has proven unattainable. No one has been able to create a laser that beams white light. Researchers at Arizona State University have solved the puzzle. They have proven that semiconductor lasers are capable of emitting over the full visible color spectrum, which is necessary to produce a white laser. The researchers have created a novel nanosheet – a thin layer of semiconductor that measures roughly one-fifth of the thickness of human hair in size with a thickness that is…

  • Windows PowerShell MVP for another year!

    1 Jul 2015 | 7:13 am
    It’s that of the year again! July 1st is usually the day I look forward to receiving the MVP award mailer from Microsoft. And, yes, it is here again. This will be my 6th consecutive MVP award year and I am glad to be a part of the elite community! I enjoyed writing my first published book and I evangelized Windows PowerShell DSC a lot in last one year. I started writing about containers. I have learned a quite a bit around IoT, Azure, AWS, and GCE. So, naturally, I am looking forward to more this coming year as I expand beyond PowerShell and DSC. Stay tuned!
  • Containers – What are they? And, their history! – Part 2

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

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

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

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

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

  • Selfishly Altruistic: The Science Behind Sharing

    Renee Schmidt
    14 Jul 2015 | 1:09 pm
    Altruism is fascinating. Partly because it goes against what we understand of human nature —that people inherently desire the greatest amount of instant gratification with the least amount of effort. As I wrote recently, what separates us from our ape cousins is this very desire for instant gratification. Humans, because we have a better-developed pre-frontal cortex, can assess second, third, or even fourth order consequences of any given action, and CHOOSE to inject self-discipline in favor of a longer term outcome (i.e. pain now, gain later). The pre-frontal cortex is involved…

Avoiding the truth about situations, people, and ourselves, however, prevents us from learning and keeps us stuck in repetitive patterns that thwart our evolution and the attainment of that which we truly desire. This is no different in an organizational setting. Companies that…
  • Manifesting My Desires: Am I Worthy?

    Renee Schmidt
    6 Jul 2015 | 10:12 am
    I have been considering what it takes to manifest more of what I want into my life. This led me to question: am I worthy of what I want? And how does one determine self-worth or self-value anyway? The whole endeavor sounds like a big ego trip. It’s not. Three types of people will read this post; those with 1. healthy self-worth, 2. low self-worth and 3. inflated self-worth. Individuals with low and inflated self-worth are both egotistical; it’s just different sides of the same coin (sorry to be the bearer of bad news). Low self-worth often exhibits as not manifesting what we desire.

  • Why I Deactivated My Facebook Profile

    Renee Schmidt

    I deactivated my Facebook profile. Why? Because no one cares. Well, actually, if you’re reading this post and have found your way here to my personal blog, you may care. But by and large, people will not. If you desire my substantiation, or thoughtful reasons why you may want to do the same, here are a couple of reasons why I’ve taken  my ~10 year old profile down. 1. Too much noise and none of it is of particular value. I noticed myself busy with Facebook but not getting any particular value out of it. In fact, the investment of time eventually began to generate a negative…

  • Extreme Droughts Weaken Trees' Ability to Soak Up Carbon

    31 Jul 2015 | 4:00 am
    There’s a mystery inside trees upon which the fate of coastal cities, threatened by rising sea levels from climate change, may depend. Each year, the Earth’s forests take up about one-quarter of the carbon dioxide emitted by humans, effectively slowing the speed and severity of global warming. They lock up most of this carbon in their stems and keep it there for centuries. This service that they provide to humanity is worth about US$1 trillion each year.Read more...

    Now that Apple Music has finally been unveiled as part of the iOS 8.4 update it gives us a much better chance to see just what all the fuss is about. For those that have been very comfortable using digital music service Spotify for the past few years Apple Music has been somewhat of an interesting development. Initially it was thought that Apple were simply riding the coat tails of the aforementioned music provider trying to lure away iOS users to use their cheaper and more convenient music streaming service. But now it’s on the market just who comes out on top when it comes to price,…

With the release of the Apple Watch came an innovative way of telling the time.

Each of them have their benefits and their downfalls, and that’s what we’re going to explore in this blog. Will desktop reign superior? Or will mobile finally be the one that knocks desktops off the edge and into oblivion? We’re not psychic, but the trends thus far allow for some very interesting patterns to emerge.

    Ever since gaming became its own subculture it has been fraught with controversy, taking the blame for everything from laziness in young adults to the horrors of the Columbine shooting. However, despite the standard media narrative that gaming is destructive, the fundamentals of gaming offers society more positives than negatives. At its core, gaming is about competition, whether against yourself or other players.

  • Tesla Model S gets torched by a McLaren 650S in a drag race… and it’s not even close

    Yoni Heisler
    31 Jul 2015 | 5:30 am
    When it comes to raw acceleration relative to price, you'd be hard pressed to come up with a car as impressive as the Tesla Model S P85D. With a push of a button, Tesla's upper-tier model can go from 0-60 mph in just 3.2 seconds flat. Fittingly, Tesla calls this mode Insane Mode. But as any physics student could tell you, acceleration and speed aren't the same thing. So while the performance edition of the Model S is an absolute beast getting off the line, that doesn't necessarily translate into being the most impressive car on the track, speed wise.

  • Watch 1,000 musicians woo the Foo Fighters to Italy

    Amar Toor
    31 Jul 2015 | 4:38 am
    One thousand musicians gathered in Italy this week to perform the Foo Fighters song "Learn to Fly," as part of an effort to bring the band to Cesena — a northern city of about 100,000 people. The Rockin' 1000 event was organized last year by Fabio Zaffagnini, who described the performance as a "huge, huge miracle." Zaffagnini used crowdfunding to raise more than $50,000 for the performance, with the hope that it would convince Dave Grohl and his bandmates to hold a concert in Cesena. It seems to have worked. The band later tweeted a link to the video, writing: "Ci vediamo a presto,…
  • First Click: Tiny wireless earbuds are definitely coming this summer, maybe

    Thomas Ricker

    Of all the future technologies that seem just out of reach, wireless earbuds rank near the top of the list. Right next to flexible smartphones and transparent displays on our kitchen windows. I’m not talking bulky buds like the Powerbeats 2 or that mono earpiece from Moto, but those tiny stereo earbuds Ryan Reynolds inserts into his earholes during the opening title sequence of 2008’s Definitely, maybe.

    If you've ever visited the Royal Albert Hall you'll know it has no connection to Ibiza. Set in the heart of London, it plays host to The Proms annually — eight weeks of classical music concerts in a historic venue. Ibiza and the Royal Albert Hall are polar opposites, but on Wednesday night they merged together to pay homage to house music. The BBC convinced the Heritage Orchestra to play some Ibiza classics and the result is a stunning Ibiza Prom. Continue reading…
  • World's best whisky is being sent to age in space

    31 Jul 2015 | 3:32 am
    A Japanese distillery is sending some of its world-renowned whisky into outer space. Tokyo-based Suntory, a brewing and distillery company, announced today that it will send six samples of its whiskies and other alcohols to the International Space Station (ISS) next month, in order to observe the effects of zero-gravity on the aging process. Suntory is Japan's oldest whisky distillery, and is responsible for producing the Yamazaki Single Malt Cherry Cask 2013, which last year was named the best whisky in the world (much to the dismay of Scotland). A Suntory spokesperson tells The Wall…

    Google is reportedly working on a new "Enterprise Edition" of its augmented reality Google Glass headset that has a few new hardware improvements. While 9to5Google originally revealed some details on the updated hardware earlier this month, The Wall Street Journal reports that the new version doesn't have a wire-like frame. Aimed at businesses, the new Google Glass reportedly features a button-and-hinge system to attach it to different glasses. Previous reports suggested that the new model is foldable like a normal pair of glasses, so it's possible there could be slight variations or…

  • Risk-based security: Applying more sophisticated risk assessment and mitigation tools

    30 Jul 2015 | 9:22 am
    (c) Not all data is created equal. Right there is why organisations are newly focused on risk based security where the crown jewels get more rigorous protection than, say, humdrum, ordinary files. This is crucial because – as headlines about breaches of important data files at large insurers such as Anthem, large retailers such as Target, and even federal government agencies demonstrate – hackers have gotten very good at their jobs. Understand, for them this is a job. It’s no longer about malcontented kids in mom’s basement. Hacking is now the occupation…
  • Opinion: Forget connected fridges, it's time to get serious about the IoT

    28 Jul 2015 | 4:24 pm
    (c) The Internet of Things (IoT) was the most hyped technology of 2014 according to Gartner, and it’s easy to see why. Cisco’s recent IoT study suggests that the number of connected devices is expected to grow to 50 billion by 2020, leading to a global economic impact of $10 trillion. Connected devices are set to change the very fabric of the world we live and work in. However, the buzz around gadgets such as connected fridges and smart kettles being developed by consumer goods manufacturers have been a distraction from the IoT’s true potential. Indeed,…

    23 Jul 2015 | 8:38 am
    (Image Credit: iStockPhoto/karandaev) The Internet of Things (IoT) is just as much a platform as it is a new standard for technological development and integration. Just as the personal computer enabled new use cases and gave end users new ways to be productive and be entertained, IoT will enable a number of digital improvements to the status quo. All these potential improvements and use cases belong to one of four main uses, much in the way that previous technologies, like the PC, touched all industries.

  • Which beacon shines brighter: Eddystone or iBeacon?

    21 Jul 2015 | 3:03 am
    (c) It always made sense that Google would eventually enter the beacon space. In many ways, it’s surprising that Google didn’t get there first. After all, the technology is essentially putting cookies into physical spaces and bringing many of the same technology we use on the web to the physical world. The tracking, advertising, contextual aware potential of the technology made it a Google no-brainer. Eddystone, likely inspired by the lighthouse off the British coast, is Google’s entry into this space. According to Google, the company spoke to a number of…

    Picture credit: Microsoft As Microsoft pushed through its staged rollout of Windows 10, beginning at 0500 BST today, many in the mobile enterprise see it as a milestone for greater productivity and efficiency. Naturally, enterprise mobility management (EMM) providers are falling over themselves to provide support for the nascent ‘Windows as a Service’ OS straight out of the box. But should organisations jump in? Noah Wasmer, end user computing CTO and VP product management at VMware, notes enterprise buy-in is “all over the map, as you would expect”, but in his…

There are over 300 firms selling mobility technology to enterprises and increasing complexity is prompting customers, particularly multinational organisations, to demand a more complete set of managed services to address their rapidly changing mobility needs.

  • Shadow IT and why the CIO should not be the ‘CI-NO’ but an enabler of change

    26 Jul 2015 | 4:23 pm
    (c) A new report from Fruition Partners argues CIOs are not applying traditional IT service management (ITSM) processes to cloud technologies. The survey, which buttonholed 100 CIOs, revealed more than four in five (83%) say ‘cloud sprawl’ makes IT management more complex. Looking at it another way, IT departments simply are not applying the same testing standards to the cloud as they would for in house IT services. One company, in the construction sector, found they had 300 copies of a cloud-based project management tool for only 200 project managers.

  • Founders: when to ditch the ramen and give yourself a raise

    Ryan Holmes
    30 Jul 2015 | 11:51 am
    Is it true that the lower a CEO’s salary, the higher the chances a business will succeed? Yes — at least according to Silicon Valley investor Peter Thiel, who spoke on the topic a few years back. He attests that no matter how promising an organization’s current outlook may be, a bloated top-dog salary is a serious red flag for long-term viability. I believe there’s truth to that stance, and I’d never condone an unjustifiably inflated CEO salary. However, when it comes to paying yourself, there also needs to be fluidity to compensation. Increasing salary in step with company…

With subscriber growth tapering off even in geographic regions that were late to mobile adoption and a host of over the top (OTT) players creating a challenging outlook for services beyond the traditional telecommunications space, it is understandable that communications service providers (CSPs) are looking for new opportunities.
