AT&T Adds 2.1 Million Net New Customers In Second Quarter Of 2015        
AT&T Adds 2.1 Million Net New Customers In Second Quarter Of 2015

AT&T recently announced that it has added 2.1 million net new customers during the second quarter of this year. Interestingly, almost all of the carrier’s new additions is attributed to strong sales of tablets, and to connected cars. As a matter of fact, AT&T has added one million new additions driven by tablets and connected cars in the period spanning April to June.

It appears that there is a visible shift in the makeup of AT&T’s subscriber base, with a significant part of the new customer additions spurred by tablets and connected devices. Also, it seems that traditional subscribers -- i.e. those that use phones -- may be on the decline, at least in AT&T’s case. It is also possible that such diminished growth from traditional phone customers for AT&T is connected to the increased pressure from competitors like Sprint and T-Mobile, who are only eager to usurp AT&T’s place as the second biggest wireless carrier in the United States.

Earlier in July, T-Mobile had announced that it had added 2.1 million customers during the second quarter of this year. And just a few days ago, Verizon Wireless had revealed that it had gained over 1 million net new customers, and 1.1 million post-paid subscribers. 

As for AT&T, it had added 410,000 post-paid subscribers, however the growth entirely consisted of 600,000 tablets. In the second quarter of this year, the carrier had lost about 200,000 basic phone subscribers. Still, AT&T was able to add 331,000 prepaid customers as a result of boosting its prepaid arm Cricket Wireless. 

A new focus for AT&T is in connected cars. The carrier is signing up with the largest number of automobile manufacturers in order to bring cellular connectivity to vehicles. But perhaps the more pressing question is -- will people actually pay extra money to connect their cars to a cellular network? The potential is there, but for now, it remains to be seen. 

AT&T also managed to generate a profit in the amount of $3.04 billion, or $0.58 per share, during the second quarter of 2015. During the same period in the previous year, the carrier had a profit of $3.55 billion, or $0.68 per share. Not counting costs associated with its acquisition of two wireless carriers based in Mexico and its looming deal with DirecTV, AT&T managed $0.69 per share of adjusted earnings. Moreover, revenues increased 1.4 percent to $33 billion. As per data compiled by Yahoo, analysts predict, on average, revenue of $33.04 billion and earnings of $0.63 per share.

          Sprint Called Out For Cramming Customer Accounts        
Sprint Called Out For Cramming Customer Accounts

Oops. Sprint has been busted for charging tens of millions of dollars in unauthorized third-party messaging charges to customer bills.

Moreover, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is about to issue a fine in the amount of $105 million for the carrier's dubious charges, as reported by the Wall Street Journal. Interestingly, the amount of the fine is the same as the one AT&T paid to the FCC earlier this year in a case that is similar.

The fine is not official yet -- the FCC is still waiting for the commissioner to approve it. However, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is not wasting any moment -- on behalf of the carrier's disgruntled subscribers, the CFPB is filing a lawsuit against Sprint.

According to the CFPB, Sprint should have made it a priority to protect its subscribers from third-party billing scams. But unfortunately for its customers, the carrier had let suspicious fees for unauthorized premium text messages show up on the customers' billing statements.

The CFPB further alleges that Sprint is choosing to ignore the tens of thousands of complaints and refund requests from disgusted subscribers due to the incorrect billing. The bureau also believes that with the carrier keeping about 40 percent of all the revenue generated from bills crammed with third-party fees, it is a lot easier for Sprint to turn a blind eye.

Even though the major wireless carriers in the United States have agreed to cease billing their subscribers for premium third-party services, the practice of cramming customer bills has always been frequently done by service providers for years. By doing so, they can generate some extra income out of unsuspecting wireless subscribers.

Last October this year, AT&T agreed to settle with the FCC over cramming complaints from its subscribers. Even T-Mobile had to deal with its own cramming lawsuit back in July of this year. Out of the $105 million fine paid by AT&T, the FCC took $80 million to be refunded to subscribers who were affected. For sure, the FCC will work to achieve the same result with its lawsuit against Sprint. 

For its part, Sprint is denying the allegations. The carrier claims that it took certain steps to protect its subscribers from unauthorized third-party billing practices. 

If the $105 million fine does go through, it will mark the first time that the FCC and the CFPB have joined forces together in taking action against a major wireless provider.

          Sprint Prepaid Teams Up With Best Buy To Offer Free Month Of Service        
Sprint Prepaid Teams Up With Best Buy To Offer Free Month Of Service

Looks like Sprint is on a roll as we enter into the holiday season. The carrier offers another year-end special offer through its Sprint Prepaid brand, which is collaborating with retail giant Best Buy in giving customers one month of service that is completely free of charge. 

This special offer is a limited time offer only, and is open to all subscribers buying a new eligible handset from Best Buy and activating it under a Sprint Prepaid plan. Phones that eligible include the Samsung Galaxy S5, the Samsung Galaxy SIII, the LG Tribute, the LG Volt, and the Sharp Crystal.

Customers get to choose from three Sprint Prepaid plans that already include unlimited calls and unlimited text messaging. These plans are: the $35 monthly plan that includes 1 gigabyte of data, the $45 monthly plan that includes 3 gigabyte of data, and the $55 monthly plan 

Apart from unlimited calls and texting, Sprint Prepaid's plans also offer 50 minutes of off-network voice roaming per month. This is not usually offered by other prepaid service providers, which should delight those who decide to go for a prepaid plan from Sprint.

Sprint's free first month special offer is certainly a treat, but other prepaid brands also offer competitive deals. For instance, Cricket Wireless (AT&T's prepaid brand) has its Basic Plan, which offers unlimited calls, unlimited text messaging, and 1 gigabyte of high-speed data for $35 each month, that is once an AutoPay credit is applied.

New prepaid player Red Pocket also has an interesting offer. Via its GSMT Unlimited Everything plan, you get unlimited calls, unlimited text messaging, 200 minutes of international calls, and 2 gigabytes of data at full speed for $39.99 every recharge. This offer is also eligible for a full month of service free of charge from Red Pocket, provided the customer gets two months worth of recharges.

The year is not over yet, and we may still see other holiday deals from prepaid brands in the coming days or weeks. But Sprint Prepaid's offer is truly worth checking out. Customers can avail of it until January 31st of next year at all Best Buy retail stores in the United States.

Sprint has been rather busy in the past few weeks. The carrier has made its iPhone for Life and Easy Pay options available from Apple retails stores for the holidays. Apart from that, it has also teamed up with Uber in offering a free first ride promo for Sprint customers who sign up for the transport service. Interested to know more about Sprint's deals?

          AT&T Expands Voice Over LTE To 18 Additional Markets        
AT&T Expands Voice Over LTE To 18 Additional Markets

AT&T first launched its Voice over LTE (VoLTE) service about seven months ago, but now the carrier is expanding its reach by adding 18 new markets for its VoLTE and HD Voice offerings.

The list of new markets include District of Columbia, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin. 

The good news is that this is just the beginning. AT&T's target is to transition every consumer to VoLTE. That would be easier said than done for sure, considering the tons of networks that need to be set up and the hardware that needs to be deployed. But AT&T is positive about the outcome, and early signs of success are certainly visible.

As stated by John Donovan, AT&T's Senior Vice President of Technology and Operations, the carrier's VoLTE network is performing very well after some internal tests, scoring an average of more than 99 percent in terms of accessibility and retainability (how well the users stay connected).

For those not in the know, VoLTE technology lets users simultaneously make calls and browse the Internet using their smartphones with very fast 4G LTE data speeds. 

As for HD Voice, it is a type of wideband technology that allows for better call quality with minimal background noise, made possible through widening the frequency range of the audio signals.

Voice calls were previously transmitted on a rather limited frequency range (between 300 Hertz to 3.4 Hertz). But with HD Voice, that frequency range is extended from 50 Hertz to 7 KiloHertz, and sometimes even beyond, in order to achieve high definition quality in voice calls.

However, before users can enjoy HD Voice, they need to meet the requirements. Firstly, the service must be available in their geographical area (AT&T is working on it). Secondly, the person calling and the recipient of the call must both use handsets that are HD Voice capable. For AT&T customers, just about the only devices available from their carrier that meet this requirement are the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus.

AT&T is far from being the only major wireless carrier that offers HD Voice though. Sprint may have been the first off the blocks, offering its customers a 30-day trial run of its HD Voice service in June earlier this year. Even Verizon Wireless is working on its own HD Voice brand, and the talk is that the Big Red will utilizing the AMR-wideband standard (the industry norm) for its service.

Interestingly, AT&T and Verizon Wireless are working together in providing clear call quality in both their customers. If they can pull this off, AT&T customers will be able to call their friends and family who are on Verizon as clearly as possible, and vice versa.

          AT&T Throttles Users On Unlimited Data Plans Regardless Of Network Congestion        
AT&T Throttles Users On Unlimited Data Plans Regardless Of Network Congestion

AT&T has confirmed that it is throttling subscribers under its unlimited data plans, no matter how congested the network is. 

As reported by Ars Technica, subscribers who are using non-LTE 3G/HSPA+ handsets and are under unlimited data plans only get throttled when network congestion becomes heavy, and when the users exceed 3 gigabytes of data within a single billing period. But apparently, these same conditions do not apply to customers on LTE.

If a subscriber is under, say, a legacy AT&T unlimited plan and uses up more than 5 gigabytes of data on an LTE-compatible handset in a span of a month, the subscriber's data speeds will automatically be reduced for the remainder of the billing period, even if the network remains free of congestion.

Ars Technica further reported that data speeds slowed down from 23.5 mbps on average to just 0.1 mbps. When the subscriber's billing period is reset, only then are the data speeds returned to their normal levels. However, once the subscriber reaches 5 gigabytes, data speeds are automatically reduced again.

For its part, AT&T issued a statement defending its network management practices as legitimate. The carrier claims that the throttling was put in place in order to provide optimum network service for its subscribers.

AT&T further added that it is planning to address the data throttling concerns between its LTE and non-LTE unlimited subscribers sometime next year. The carrier says that it will be reducing data speeds for LTE users in congested networks as soon as that option is made available.

AT&T may be claiming that it is throttling data speeds for the benefit of all customers using its networks. But others see the throttling as a ploy to lead on long-term customers to more lucrative limited data plans. This tactic has been employed before, namely by Sprint for its Unlimited My Way and My All-In plans. Even Verizon Wireless thought of doing the same thing, but then the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) stepped in and pressured Big Red to reverse its decision. 

Right now, fewer than 20 percent of all AT&T customers are under unlimited data plans. Those that are signed up for the plans because they were thinking they could stream and download without having to worry about high overage fees if they exceed their data allotments. But it appears that they are getting throttled anyway, rendering their data privileges useless. 

As for the network congestion claims, some may find it hard to believe, especially when the subscribers who are under more expensive data plans (up to 100 gigabytes each month) never get to experience throttled data speeds.

          Sprint Introduces Deal To Reduce Bills Of AT&T, Verizon Customers In Half        
Sprint Introduces Deal To Reduce Bills Of AT&T, Verizon Customers In Half

When it comes to grabbing customers from rival wireless carriers, Sprint does not seem to shy away from unusual tactics. Just recently for instance, the carrier introduced a new deal that promises to cut the bills in half of any customer from competitors AT&T and Verizon Wireless. Of course, for the customers to avail of the deal, they would have to produce a current AT&T or Verizon bill. It is a gutsy move for sure, but will it be effective? 

Sprint is calling the deal the Cut Your Bill in Half promo. In this deal, anybody who is currently on an AT&T or Verizon plan and wants to switch to Sprint, must first furnish a copy of their current bills, and either upload them to Sprint's website, or hand-deliver them to any official Sprint store. Sprint will then evaluate the bill submitted, and decide which Sprint plan matches it in terms of calls, text messaging, and data allotment. Sprint will then offer that matching plan for half the price of the defecting subscriber's current AT&T or Verizon plan.

For instance, a customer who hands in a bill for a Verizon family plan costing $260 each month will be offered a family plan with similar inclusions but only for $130 each month.

Sprint already launched a promotion wherein it covered early termination fees up to $350 in the form of a prepaid Visa gift card. This can be paired with the new Cut Your Bill in Half promo, as long as the customer qualifies.

There are a few caveats, of course. One, those who avail of this promo will not be able to buy a subsidized handset from Sprint. They must sign up for the carrier's leasing program, make installment payments, or buy the device outright at its full retail price. Two, participants will have to turn in their current AT&T or Verizon handsets to Sprint. Understandably, it would be weird using an AT&T or Verizon device on Sprint's network, but still, you would be parting ways with something that you've gotten used to. What if you don't have a smartphone to turn in? (Got lost, perhaps?) Sprint will then charge you $200 per line of service. It is not clear yet what Sprint plans to do with the devices that are turned in though. 

Sprint's Cut Your Bill in Half promo is offered on a limited time only. However, people who participate in the deal will be able to keep enjoying discounted bills in the future as long as they do not add more data or minutes. Once they do, their plans will be reverted the normal pricing structure.

One more thing -- this promo is off limits to T-Mobile subscribers. One possible reason is that T-Mobile is already competing with Sprint in offering slashed data prices in a manner that the other carriers, AT&T and Verizon, are not. 

And because the promo is designed to lure AT&T and Verizon subscribers, Sprint's own existing subscribers will not be able to take advantage of the deal. Find out what other deals Sprint is offering right now -- start comparing Sprint plans and phones now.

          Nexus 6 Pre-Orders Start November 12th At AT&T; Goes On Sale November 14th At Sprint        
Nexus 6 Preorders at ATT and Sprint

Good news for Nexus 6 fans. Google's latest Nexus phablet will start to become available for purchase at two major wireless carriers this week. 

AT&T has confirmed that the Nexus 6 will become available for pre-ordering starting on Wednesday, November 12th. The device is priced at $249 on-contract. Buyers, however, can opt to purchase the phablet at its full retail price of $682.99 and pay off that total amount over the course of 20, 24, or 30 regular monthly payments via AT&T's Next 12, Next 18, and Next 24 plans, respectively. Unfortunately, AT&T has not yet provided any shipping estimates for the Nexus 6 as of this writing. But it will not be long now until the carrier makes announcement regarding availability.

Two days later on Friday, November 14th, the Nexus 6 will become available on Sprint's stores. As announced by Sprint, the phablet will be priced at $696 off-contract, with $0 down payment and 24 regular monthly payments of $29 through the carrier's Easy Pay plan. 

Also, it should be noted that Sprint will only be offering the Midnight Blue 32 gigabyte edition of the Nexus 6 smartphone.

As one might notice, the device does have a rather high price tag. That may not be too surprising. The Nexus 6 smartphone after all sports an enormous 6-inch 2560 by 1440 resolution display screen, and a 13-megapixel rear camera. 

Hardware-wise, it packs a Snapdragon 805 processor, 32 gigabytes (or 64 gigabytes) of internal storage, 3 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM), and a powerful 3,220 mAh battery.

It is also the first smartphone to have Android 5.0 Lollipop, the newest version of the Android mobile operating system. This updated edition of the world's most popular smartphone OS is truly a joy to behold, featuring a neater design further enhanced with animations and a more user-friendly interface and environment.

In the last two weeks, the Nexus 6 has only been made available through the Google Play Store and directly from Motorola, the phone maker who collaborated with Google in bringing the phablet to life.

In a few days, users will be able to get them from two of the four major wireless carriers in 
the United States. While AT&T and Sprint have already joined the party, many are expecting the other big boys (T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless) to follow suit.

          Basics Of Wi-Fi Security         


Hi all today i am just going to discuss how you can secure your wifi network from hackers. you must have came across many tips on securing wifi network from various blogs and all but here we will discuss from a hackers point of view and all practical and genuine approach to securing Wi-Fi network so lets begin.










 

 

Tips On Securing Wi-Fi Network -


Be Sure To Use the strongest wireless encryption your modem or router provide Making your wireless modem with wpa or wpa2 encrypt do give a trust that your wifi netwok is safe. Typically our router or modem uses various methods of encryption to protect data sent over wifi network. Always use WAP or WPA2 to use secure your wifi network if your router/modem is not having those encryption then never select that brand router/modem. If your modem/router does not provide WPA or WPA2 encryption it is strongly recommended that a new device be purchased.So you must have heard about WEP (Wired Equivalency Privacy) it is quite older technique of securing which easy for hackers to crack with that I can never say you are completely secure.




Remember the use(Change default pass) of strongest possible network password / network
key always ensure better security -














Again Its a simple tips which applies on all field for better security, As  you know general rule, the longer and more complicated the password, the more difficult for hackers to crack it. I do recommend to use minimum an eight character password should be used to allow access to your wireless network. And remember don't forget to change your modem/router default password people do forget it many time which lead to compromise the wifi network. Never use the same password to control or access more than one system or program and never use your wireless network name as your password! Doing such stupid activity makes things too easy for anyone to hack your wifi easily. Its obvious thing that most of the time our modems are designed to use a default password such as “admin”, “password” or the manufacturer’s name. These settings are easily accessible to a user when the modem and network is being set up, however because they are easily accessible and often use weak passwords will unless changed, remain potentially accessible to anyone who wishes to gain access. There are many sites available on internet which give away default passwords for modems /routers (vendor specific as well). Changing your modem or router’s default password offers a simple but effective security measure against unauthorized remote access.




Hide your SSID (network name)  - 









I know the Wi-Fi network is still Hack-able when SSID Is hidden but it makes thing bit difficult for hackers to crack any Wi-Fi network which is invisible. Typically all Wi-Fi network broadcast its presence (beacon frames) when they are turned on so making the SSID hidden keep another layer of protection in securing Wi-Fi network because if the network is not broadcasting its name that make difficult for hackers to hack it.




Access to Remote modem administration -

These days most modern modems or routers can be remotely administered over the internet. If yours can, then someone besides you can potentially locate your modem’s IP (Internet Protocol) address and potentially hack your modem.A simple fix to this vulnerability is to disable remote administration for your modem or router. If you absolutely require remote access then you can try limiting access to a particular IP address or limited range of addresses, to reduce the chance of unauthorized users gaining access to your modem’s configuration settings. As a general rule for home networks, remote access is not necessary and possibly the safest thing is to disable remote access to your modem/router.




MAC address filtering for improve security -



Encryption including WPA2 and strong passwords are the best methods to control who accesses your network, however most modems and routers offer further methods to control your network. It is a better option to make your Wi-Fi network more secure is to use mac filter as you know mac address (unique hardware address of a system)  so it ensure better protection .i know mac address can be spoofed but with all WPA2 and strong password ,mac filtering whole together ensure better security . All Most all modern modems offer the capability to restrict access to a wireless network to known devices (known MAC addresses). Trouble here is if you not setting mac filter properly then you man miss the Wi-Fi services (cannot connect to the network).





Enable modem/router firewall and security features -

Most modern modems and routers come standard with a built in firewall. A firewall can prevent unauthorized people accessing your network, can control which programs inside the network access the internet and should be enabled by default.Some hi-tech modems and routers also feature security programs known generally as intrusion detection systems (IDS). Such systems are capable of detecting attempts at unauthorized access to the system they are protecting and block many forms of attack. For additional security, all computers connected to your network should also have a software firewall system installed, or the manufacturer provided operating system firewall enabled.




Update your modem/router Firm-ware -

Some if your modem is outdated firm ware it may lead to some ready-made exploits using which any attacker can hack your network so it’s better to update firmware also the modem manufacturer provide this update firmware service for free (On modem’s website). Also keep one thing on mind unnecessary you should not make your wifi modem broad cast signal to long distance range (100m).its better to limit your modem/router signal upto 20-30 m. also always better to keep your modem at central position.So keep these things on mind while installing any wifi network and i am sure the hackers will definitely have to go through Hercules task.

          The 2013 Acura ZDX goes all in for its final year        

Leave on a good note. Go out with a bang.

Anyway you put it, the Acura ZDX had a very good run. Introduced in 2009, the ZDX was Acura's innovative and stylish crossover, and is now entering its final year of production. The luxury automaker has decided to discontinue the CUV and "sharpen its focus" on new models and core products. However, even with the ZDX ending its run, the 2013 version has received numerous styling and technology upgrades to show that it won't go down without a fight.

New to the 2013 version is a redesigned front grille, front and rear parking sensors, power folding side mirrors and such safety features as Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW).

Jeff Conrad, VP and GM of the Acura Division says, "People shopping for a luxury crossover vehicle will find the Acura ZDX an even more attractive product. " He goes on to add that, "Moving forward, we will continue to advance the Acura lineup with a focus on new core models, like the recently redesigned RDX and the upcoming all-new RLX flagship sedan, that provide the ideal balance of performance and fuel efficiency that is right for each product and a driving experience that is dynamic and emotional."

Being sold as one version, features are abundant in the value-packed 2013 ZDX.  Under the hood sits a 3.7L V-6 engine that kicks out 300 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque. Alongside the new-look front grille, there's also front and rear bumpers with integrated parking sensors and power-folding auto-dimming side mirrors.

Inside the cabin is a 435-watt Acura/ELS Surround 10-speaker audio system with 15GB HDD (Hard Disk Drive) memory, Acura Navigation System with Voice Recognition, 8-in high-res VGA display, multi-view rear view camera, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink wireless telephone interface, ventilated and heated front seats with perforated premium Milano leather seating surfaces, Keyless Access System (with Smart Entry and pushbutton ignition) and dual-zone automatic climate control system.

For safety, the Forward Collision Warning (FCW) determines if a collision is imminent, and alerts the driver. For the Lane Departure Warning (LDW), a camera mounted between the windshield and rear-view mirror detect the lane lines, so if the driver shifts out of the lane without using the turn signal, an alarm will go off.

For the future, the Acura RDX and the TSX Sport Wagon will fill up Acura's CUV/SUV segment, and those with a ZDX will still get high-level service and parts through the life of the vehicle.

Pricing for the 2013 ZDX starts at $50,920 MSRP, and goes on sale this fall. For more information on the ZDX, or to test drive one of Acura's luxury vehicles, visit Muller Acura of Merrillville. For quality and professional Acura Service, please call to set up an appointment.
          BRAIN Initiative        
President Obama recently announced a big new effort to map and understand the human brain. What are we trying to learn about our brains? One thing we will earn is how our brains are structured, "not this well-organized hierarchical control system where everything is in order." Another is how much of mental illness is shaped by experience and society, as opposed to chemical or structural factors. What do we already know about our brains? 12 Things We Know About How The Brain Works. And we know that unconcious processing improves decision-making. That brain structure may be linked to placebo response. And that unconcious brains can read and do math. We know a little bit more about how the brain responds to addiction. And we know that "genetic, molecular and cellular mechanisms" in childhood can have permanent ill effects. We think that differences in our brain reflect political differences. But we know that a lot of pop neuroscience is bollocks. What could we do with new information? Could we reverse-engineer AI? Manipulate our brains, neuron-by-neuron? Make better soldiers? Or record dreams? Or activate neurons with light? Or make better, crowdsourced brain maps? Neurotechnology, Social Control, And Revolution
In our neuro-centric world-view, a person is equated to his brain. The neuro-discourse has penetrated all aspects of our lives from law to politics to literature to medicine to physics. As part of this neuro-revolution, huge military funding is supporting neuro-scientific research; a huge body of basic knowledge on memory, belief formation, cognition and sensory modalities has been gathered over years, with fieldslike social neuroscience, cultural neuroscience, neuroeconomics and neuromarketing has emerging to improve our lifestyle; neurotechnological know-how from wireless non invasive technologies to neuroelectronic interfaces is exponentially advancing; and neurotechnology business reports indicates the rapid increase in neurotechnological start ups and the willingness of bringing neurotechnological products to the market. In my opinion, all the aforementioned indicators indicate that neurotechnology can be potentially used to control social dynamics.

          CD-i 180 adventures        
Over the last week I have been playing with the CD-i 180 player set. There’s lots to tell about, so this will be a series of blog posts, this being the first installment.

The CD-i 180 is the original CD-i player, manufactured jointly by Philips and Sony/Matsushita, and for a score of years it was the development and “reference” player. The newer CD-i 605 player provided a more modern development option but it did not become the “reference” player for quite some years after its introduction.

The CD-i 180 set is quite bulky, as could be expected for first-generation hardware. I have added a picture of my set to the Hardware section of the CD-i Emulator website; more fotos can be found here on the DutchAudioClassics.nl website (it’s the same player, as evidenced by the serial numbers).

The full set consists of the CDI 180 CD-i Player module, the CDI 181 Multimedia Controller or MMC module and the CDI 182 Expansion module. The modules are normally stacked on top of each other and have mechanical interlocks so they can be moved as a unit. Unfortunately, I do not have the CDI 182 Expansion module nor any user manuals; Philips brochures for the set can be found here on the ICDIA website.

Why am I interested in this dinosaur? It’s the first mass-produced CD-i player (granted, for relatively small masses), although there were presumably some earlier prototype players. As such, it contains the “original” hardware of the CD-i platform, which is interesting from both a historical and an emulation point of view.

For emulation purposes I have been trying to get hold of CD-i 180 ROMs for some years, there are several people that still have fully operational sets, but it hasn’t panned out yet. So when I saw a basic set for sale on the CD-Interactive forum I couldn’t resist the temptation. After some discussion and a little bartering with the seller I finally ordered the set about 10 days ago. Unfortunately, this set does not include a CDI 182 module or pointing device.

I had some reservations about this being a fully working set, but I figured that at least the ROM chips would probably be okay, if nothing else that would allow me to add support for this player type to CD-i Emulator.

In old hardware the mechanical parts are usually the first to fail, this being the CDI 180 CD-i Player module (which is really just a CD drive with a 44.1 kHz digital output “DO” signal). A workaround for this would be using an E1 or E2 Emulator unit; these are basically CD drive simulators that on one side read a CD-i disc image from a connected SCSI hard disk and on the other side output the 44.1 kHz digital output “DO” signal. Both the CDI 180 and E1/E2 units are controlled via a 1200 baud RS232 serial input “RS” signal.

From my CD-i developer days I have two sets of both Emulator types so I started taking these out of storage. For practical reasons I decided to use an E1 unit because it has an internal SCSI hard disk and I did not have a spare one lying around. I also dug out an old Windows 98 PC, required because the Philips/OptImage emulation software doesn’t work under Windows XP and newer, and one of my 605 players (I also have two of those). Connecting everything took me a while but I had carefully stored all the required cables as well and after installing the software I had a working configuration after an hour or so. The entire configuration made quite a bit of mechanical and fan noise; I had forgotten this about older hardware!

I had selected the 605 unit with the Gate Array AH02 board because I was having emulation problems with that board, and I proceeded to do some MPEG tests on it. It turns out the hardware allows for some things that my emulator currently does not, which means that I need to do some rethinking. Anyway, on with the 180 story.

In preparation for the arrival of the 180 set I next prepared an disc image of the “OS-9 Disc” that I created in November 1993 while working as a CD-i developer. This disc contains all the OS-9 command-line programs from Professional OS-9, some OS-9 and CD-i utilities supplied by Philips and Microware and some homegrown ones as well. With this disc you can get a fully functional command-line prompt on any CD-i player with a serial port, which is very useful while researching a CD-i player’s internals.

The Philips/Optimage emulation software requires the disc image files to include the 2-second gap before logical block zero of the CD-i track, which is not usually included in the .bin or .iso files produced by CD image tools. So I modified the CD-i File program to convert my existing os9disc.bin file by prepending the 2-second gap, in the process also adding support for scrambling and unscrambling the sector data.

Scrambling is the process of XORing all data bytes in a CD-ROM or CD-i sector with a “scramble pattern” that is designed to avoid many contiguous identical data bytes which can supposedly confuse the tracking mechanism of CD drives (or so I’ve heard). It turned out that scrambling of the image data was not required but it did allow me to verify that the CD-I File converted image of a test disc is in fact identical to the one that the Philips/Optimage mastering tools produce, except for the ECC/EDC bytes of the gap sectors which CD-I File doesn’t know how to generate (yet). Fortunately this turned out not to be a problem, I could emulate the converted image just fine.

Last Thursday the 180 set arrived and in the evening I eagerly unpacked it. Everything appeared to be in tip-top shape, although the set had evidently seen use.

First disappointment: there is no serial port on the right side of 181 module. I remembered that this was actually an option on the module and I had not even bothered to ask the seller about it! This would make ROM extraction harder, but I was not completely without hope: the front has a Mini-DIN 8 connector marked “CONTROL” and I fully expected this to be a “standard” CD-i serial port because I seemed to remember that you could connect standard CD-i pointing devices to this port, especially a mouse. The built-in UART functions of the 68070 processor chip would have to be connected up somewhere, after all.

Second disappointment: the modules require 120V power, not the 220V we have here in Holland. I did not have a voltage converter handy so after some phone discussion with a hardware-knowledgeable friend we determined that powering up was not yet a safe option. He gave me some possible options depending on the internal configuration so I proceeded to open up the CDI 181 module, of course also motivated by curiosity.

The first thing I noticed was that there were some screws missing; obviously the module had been opened before and the person doing it had been somewhat careless. The internals also seemed somewhat familiar, especially the looks of the stickers on the ROM chips and the placement of some small yellow stickers on various other chips.

Proceeding to the primary reason for opening up the module, I next checked the power supply configuration. Alas, nothing reconfigurable for 220V, it is a fully discrete unit with the transformer actually soldered to circuit board on both input and output side. There are also surprisingly many connections to the actual MMC processor board and on close inspection weird voltages like –9V and +9V are printed near the power supply outputs, apart from the expected +5V and +/–12V, so connecting a different power supply would be a major undertaking also.

After some pondering of the internals I closed up the module again and proceeded to closely inspect the back side for serial numbers, notices, etc. They seemed somewhat familiar but that isn’t weird as numbers often do. Out of pure curiosity I surfed to the DutchAudioClassics.nl website to compare serial numbers, wanting to know the place of my set in the production runs.

Surprise: the serial numbers are identical! It appears that this exact set was previously owned by the owner of that website or perhaps he got the photographs from someone else. This also explained why the internals had seemed familiar: I had actually seen them before!

I verified with the seller of the set that he doesn’t know anything about the photographs; apparently my set has had at least four owners, assuming that the website owner wasn’t the original one.

On Friday I obtained a 120V converter (they were unexpectedly cheap) and that evening I proceeded to power up the 180 set. I got a nice main menu picture immediately so I proceeded to attempt to start a CD-i disc. It did not start automatically when I inserted it, which on second thought makes perfect sense because the 181 MMC module has no way to know that you’ve just inserted a disc: this information is not communicated over 180/181 interconnections. So I would need to click on the “CD-I” button to start a disc.

To click on a screen button you need a supported pointing device, so I proceeded to connect the trusty white professional CD-i mouse that belongs with my 605 players. It doesn’t work!

There are some mechanical issues which make it doubtful that the MiniDIN connector plugs connect properly, so I tried an expansion cable that fit better. Still no dice.

The next step was trying some other CD-i pointing devices, but none of them worked. No pointing devices came with the set, and the seller had advised me thus (they were presumable lost or sold separately by some previous owner). The only remaining option seemed to be the wireless remote control sensor which supposedly uses RC5.

I tried every remote in my home, including the CD-i ones, but none of them give any reaction. After some research into the RC5 protocol this is not surprising, the 180 set probably has a distinct system address code. Not having a programmable remote handy nor a PC capable of generating infrared signals (none of my PCs have IrDA) I am again stuck!

I spent some time surfing the Internet looking for RC5 remotes and PC interfaces that can generate RC5 signals. Programmable remotes requiring a learning stage are obviously not an option so it will have to be a fully PC-programmable remote which are somewhat expensive and I’m not convinced they would work. The PC interface seems the best option for now; I found some do-it-yourself circuits and kits but it is all quite involved. I’ve also given some thought to PIC kits which could in principle also support a standard CD-i or PC mouse or even a joystick, but I haven’t pursued these options much further yet.

Next I went looking for ways to at least get the contents of the ROM chips as I had determined that these were socketed inside the MMC module and could easily be removed. There are four 27C100 chips inside the module, each of which contains 128Kb of data for a total of 512Kb which is the same as for the CD-i 605 player (ignoring expansion and full-motion video ROMs). The regular way to do this involves using a ROM reading device, but I haven’t gotten one handy that supports this chip type and neither does the hardware friend I mentioned earlier.

I do have access to an old 8 bit Z80 hobbyist-built system capable of reading and writing up to 27512 chips which are 64Kb, it is possible to extend this to at least read the 27C100 chip type. This would require adapting the socket (the 27512 is 28 pins whereas the 27C100 has 32 pins) and adding one extra address bit, if nothing else with just a spare wire. But the Z80 system is not at my house and some hardware modifications to it would be required, for which I would have to inspect the system first and dig up the circuit diagrams; all quite disappointing.

While researching the chip pinouts I suddenly had an idea: what if I used the CD-i 605 Expansion board which also has ROM sockets? This seemed an option but with two kids running around I did not want to open up the set. That evening however I took the board out of the 605 (this is easily done as both player and board were designed for it) and found that this Expansion board contains two 27C020 chips, each containing 256Kb of data. These are also 32 pins but the pinouts are a little different, so a socket adapter would also be needed. I checked the 605 technical manual and it did not mention anything about configurable ROM chip types (it did mention configurable RAM chip types, though) so an adapter seemed the way to go. I collected some spare 40 pin sockets from storage (boy have I got much of that) and proceeded to open up the 180 set and take out the ROM chips.

When determining the mechanical fit of the two sockets for the adapter I noticed three jumpers adjacent to the ROM sockets of the expansion board and I wondered… Tracing of the board connections indicated that these jumpers were indeed connected to exactly the ROM socket pins differing between 27C100 and 27C020, and other connections indicated it at least plausible for these jumpers to be exactly made for the purpose.

So I changed the jumpers and inserted one 180 ROM. This would avoid OS-9 inadvertently using data from the ROM because only half of each 16-bit word would be present, thus ensuring that no module headers would be detected, and in the event of disaster I would lose only a single ROM chip (not that I expected that to be very likely, but you never know).

Powering up the player worked exactly as expected, no suspicious smoke or heat generation, so the next step was software. It turns out that CD-i Link already supports downloading of ROM data from specific memory addresses and I had already determined those addresses from the 605 technical manual. So I connected the CD-i 605 null-modem cable with my USB-to-Serial adapter between CD-i player and my laptop and fired off the command line:

cdilink –p 3 –a 50000 –s 256K –u u21.rom

(U21 being the socket number of the specific ROM I chose first).

After a minute I aborted the upload and checked the result, and lo and behold the u21.rom file looked like an even-byte-only ROM dump:
00000000  4a00 000b 0000 0000 0004 8000 0000 0000 J...............
00000010 0000 0000 0000 003a 0000 705f 6d6c 2e6f .......:..p_ml.o
00000020 7406 0c20 0000 0000 0101 0101 0101 0101 t.. ............
This was hopeful, so I restarted the upload again and waited some six minutes for it to complete. Just for sure I redid the upload from address 58000 and got an identical file, thus ruling out any flakey bits or timing problems (I had already checked that the access times on the 27C100 and 27C020 chips were identical, to say 150ns).

In an attempt to speed up the procedure, I next attempted to try two ROMs at once, using ones that I thought not to be a matched even/odd set. The 605 would not boot! It later turned out that the socket numbering did not correspond to the even/odd pairing as I expected so this was probably caused by the two ROMs being exactly a matched set and OS-9 getting confused as the result. But using a single ROM it worked fine.

I proceeded to repeat the following procedure for the next three ROMs: turn off the 605, remove the expansion board, unsocket the previous ROM chip, socket the next ROM chip, reinsert the expansion board, turn on the 605 and run CD-i Link twice. It took a while, all in all just under an hour.

While these uploads were running I wrote two small programs rsplit and rjoin to manipulate the ROM files into a correct 512Kb 180 ROM image. Around 00:30 I had a final cdi180b.rom file that looked good and I ran it through cditype –mod to verify that it indeed looked like a CD-I player ROM:

cdi180b.rom 512K unknown.brd Unknown board
Of course cditype didn’t correctly detect the ROM, player and board type, but the list of modules looks exactly like a CD-i player system ROM. It is in fact very similar to the CD-i 605 system ROM, the major differences are the presence of the icard and *iic drivers, the absence of a slave module and the different player shell (ps module with separate ps_* data modules instead of a single play module).

It being quite late already, I resocketed all the ROMs in the proper places and closed up both players, after testing that they were both fully functional (insofar as I could test the 180 set), fully intending to clean up and go to bed. As an afterthought, I took a picture of the running 180 set and posted it on the CD-Interactive forums as the definitive answer to the 50/60 Hz power question I’d asked there earlier.

The CD-i Emulator urge started itching however, so I decided to give emulation of my new ROM file a quick go, fully intending to stop at any major problems. I didn’t encounter any of those, however, until I had a running CD-i 180 player three hours later. I reported the fact on the CDinteractive forum, noting that there was no pointing device or disc access yet, and went to a well-deserved sleep. Both of these issues are major ones and those I postponed for the next day.

To get the new player type up and running inside CD-i Emulater, I started by using the CD-i 605 F1 system specification files cdi605a.mdl and minimmc.brd as templates to create the new CD-i 180 F2 system files cdi180b.mdl and maximmc.brd. Next I fired up the emulator and was rewarded with bus errors. Not unexpected and a good indicator of where the problems are. Using the debugger and disassembler I quickly determined that the problems were, as expected, the presence of the VSR instead of VSD and the replacement of the SLAVE by something else. Straightening these out took a bit of time but it was not hard work and very similar to work I had done before on other player types.

This time at least the processor and most of the hardware was known and already emulated; for the Portable CD-i board (used by the CD-i 370, DVE200 and GDI700 players) both of these were not the case as they use the 68341 so-called integrated CD-i engine which in my opinion is sorely misnamed as there is nothing CD-i about the chip, it is just the Motorola version of an 68K processor with many on-chip peripherals in remarkably similar to the Philips 68070 in basic functionality.

Saturday was spent doing household chores with ROM research in between, looking for the way to get the pointing device working. It turned out to be quite involved but at the end of the day I had it sort of flakily working in a kludgy way; I’ll report the details in a next blog post.

Sunday I spent some time fixing the flakiness and thinking a lot about fixing the kludginess; this remains to be done. I also spent time making screenshots and writing this blog post.

So to finish up, there is now a series of 180 screenshots here on the CD-i Emulator website as reported in the What's New section. A very nice player shell, actually, especially for a first generation machine.

I will report some ROM and chip finds including new hopes for replacing the missing pointing device in a next blog post.

Wifi Password Hack
Wifi Password Hack v2.3.2 Latest | 4.99 MB

How to hack a Wifi password? This is not a easy task, so after many years we have crated a very interesting program. This program is called Password Hack v5 and Wifi hack wiil be piece a cake.

Tutorial:
Step 1: Just point your mouse to the social buttons bellow!
Step 2: Click and the installation process will begin
Next you must open the program and enter SSID code. The you only need to click “start” and the password will be broken.

How to hack a Wi-Fi network and how to find it’s password?

First, let me tell you what Wi-Fi is! Wi-fi is a recent technology used by gadgets to connect to the Internet without the use of wires. The Wi-Fi Alliance says that Wi-Fi represent “any wireless local area network (WLAN) products that are based on the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 802.11 standards”. Because many WLAN use the same standard, WLAN became a synonym for the Wi-Fi word. Interbrand invented Wi-Fi as a play on words with Hi-Fi (high fidelity), and also created the Wi-Fi logo. This certified trademark can be used only by those Wi-Fi adaptors which pass the Wi-Fi Alliance tests and standards. If it has to do with a connected cable, then the Wi-Fi network is much more vulnerable to hackers attacks. Sites which aren’t sertified with SSL and are usually unencrypted are those which will try to steal the Wi-Fi password and any other private datas such as images or account passworrds. Even this intruder will try to take them, it will be harder for them if the router is protected with WPA, WPA2 or WEP encyption security. An extra feature extra from 2007, known as Wi-Fi Shielded Startup (WPS), experienced a serious catch in which let a great hacker to recoupy the actual router. The latest router devices come with the strongest protection ever known and are very hard for hackers to be breaken into. That’s, of course, if you don’t change the password with which is proveded. Ussualy, the routers have generic names and passwords such as the brand or name of the router, or even admin or 1234 as username and password.

The Wi-Fi is used nowdays for devices such as PC, Video Console such as PS 2, Ps 3, Xbox 360, PS portable (except the E-1000 one) and any other console which have 3G or Wi-Fi connection toghether with laptops and smart and non-smart phones. Those devices can access the Wi-Fi by using the sho called hotspots, where free internet is ussually given by restaurants or Internet providers. You need to be within 100 m to receive the signal, and it can only be received outdoors. What you receive indoors is the signal of a neighbour’s router, not a hotspot one. Hotspots can have low signals (10-20 meters) to strong signals, which take a few kilometers.
Any device which has Wi-Fi connectivity can receive Internet signal from this hotspots. The interconected devices are called hang-outs and can be seen each other for distances of over several miles. Outdoor open public Wi-Fi technologies have been used properly with wifi mesh networks with Liverpool, London, and gennerally in the big cities from all the United Kngdom. Wi-Fi is a great way for companies to promote their businessess; it’s very clear that, if there are two restaurants with the same prices and services, but one have also Wi-Fi connectivity, the one with the Wi-Fi will win. And it is not too expensive to provide Wi-Fi, just connect the Internet cable to a router and let it flow. Enthusiasts or perhaps specialists who want to offer products and services or even to enhance company with selected parts at times offer no cost Wi-Fi gain access to. Also there are companies which, in exchage for space used by antena’s on the rooftop of the flat of blocks, gife free internet in that flat. The are radions risks but who cares when you have free Internet, right? I thought so!
If you want to aquire a router, take a brand one, like Belkin or D-link, because the no-name chinese ones are very vulnerable to hacker attacks and can break easely. Don’t risk to lose all your money from the bank accounts or images with your daughter naked posted on the Internet just because you did’t wanted to spend a couple of extra pennies at the right time.

The same can apply to a mobile, battery powerd router, which is included in every cellphone existent. Many phone provider give free traffic for their clients in WAP, 2G, 3G or even 4G connectivity, depending on the country you live. Almost all smartphones have nowdays a easy OS to use such as Android, iOS, and the now dead Symbian OS, which make possible to connect to any Wi-Fi decive and also to interconnect. Internet pucksgive separate services in this sort at the same time, without use of any touch screen phone; these include this MiFi, as well as WiBro branded equipment. Out there are also many devices such as notebooks, ultrabooks and even laptops which use Wi-Fi to find any information the users want.

Now, let’s turn back to the topic of this article. How to hack a Wi-Fi network and how to find it’s password? This is a question many people asked. But now you don;t have to ask yourself anymore. Here is the sollution to all those frustrating days when you were at countrysite, isolated from the rest of the world and you found just a single, slow router. And that was passworded too. Then you and your phone are useless. That’s why our team of developers invented the most powerfull tool on the internet:

Wi-Fi password Hack v5. With a beautifull design, a silverish skin and a blueish font, this is one hack which is very, vet, very easy to use! Even my granddaughter Mary managed to use it in order to play with her virtual friends on the Internet. What do you have to do? First, type the SSID of the router. Ussualy is admin or the model of the router: you can just find it by scanning with the Windows utilities. Next, choose the security type: it could be WEP, WEP 2 or even WSK, it depends on the router. It doesn’t matter what type of security is, every type is hackable. Next, press on Start hacking and the program will handle you the password. Now you have free internet. Congratulations!

As if I had nothing better to do (I'm supposed to be cleaning the bathroom), I collected a bunch of links whilst listening to the Hanselminutes podcast episode 349. This show was one of the Hanselminutia episodes where Scott chats with Richard Campbell. They were talking about a lot of home automation stuff that's interesting to me so I gathered links to follow up on later (after the bathroom is clean, of course).

           Nokia Lumia 730 Dual-SIM , Lumia 735 , Lumia 830 and Lumia 930 Mobile From Microsoft Corporation | Lumia 730 ,735 , 830 Features, Specifications & Price In India        
Microsoft Devices announced the rumoured Superman codenamed selfie phone. The Nokia Lumia 730 and Nokia Lumia 735 have similar looks and innards, the only difference is that the Nokia Lumia 730 is a Dual SIM handset supporting 3G connectivity and the Nokia Lumia 735 can handle a single LTE connection and can be charged wirelessly. The prices of the Lumia 730 and 735 are 199 and 219 Euros respectively. When they arrive in India in bright green, bright orange, dark grey and white colour variants at the end of this month, we can expect the prices to hover around Rs. 16000 and Rs. 18000 respectively.

The Nokia Lumia 730 Dual-SIM and Lumia 735 sport a 4.7inch OLED display with ClearBlack tech. The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and supports supersensitive touch. We were disappointed to see that Microsoft has left out Glance Screen in both these devices. Underneath we find a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor and 1GB of RAM running Windows Phone 8.1 Lumia Denim edition.

Nokia Lumia 730 Dual-SIM​

Microsoft says that both of these smartphones are “the ultimate selfie and Skype smartphones” and it isn’t kidding. The Lumia 730 and 735 have f/2.4 aperture wide angle 5MP sensor that can accommodate as many friends as you like. It also preloads the phones with its new Selfie app which not only lets you access the front camera quickly but also lets you add filters and skin enhancements and even lets you slim down your face and blur out the background. For select markets it is offering a free three-month Skype Unlimited World subscription that lets you make calls to mobile and landline phones. On the rear you find a 6.7MP auto-focus camera with BSI sensor and 4x zoom capable of recording Full HD videos at 30fps. The only foible is that the phone does not have a physical shutter button like its recently launched big brother.

The Nokia Lumia 730 and 735 have a smaller 8GB internal memory which can be expanded with the help of microSD cards of up to 128GB. It throws in 15GB of OneDrive cloud storage as well. Connectivity features include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and microUSB. Like all Lumia family member you get free voice guided navigation and offline maps with the help of Nokia HERE maps service. The company claims that the user removable battery will last for 25 days on standby and offer 22 hours of talk time.

          Microsoft is making a keyboard cover for Apple’s iPad        
While the iPad will always play second fiddle to the iPhone, it's been a hot topic over the past 24 hours. First, we learned from Apple's earnings report that iPad sales grew significantly for the first time in ages. Then, hours later, WinFuture spotted a surprising listing on a download page on Microsoft's website that seems to indicate that the company is working on an iPad Touch Cover. Back in April, Microsoft uploaded a series of PDF documents related to lithium batteries. Many of the items on the list were familiar Microsoft products, such as the HoloLens, the Surface Book, the Xbox One Battery Pack and dozens of Lumia and Nokia smartphones. But one items in particular stands out: "iPad Touch Cover (Model 1719)." So what exactly would a Microsoft iPad cover look like? Unfortunately, the related PDF file doesn't include any photos, mockups or sketches, but it does include one vital clue about the device: it will contain a small lithium battery, which implies that the case will also feature a wireless keyboard. As WinFuture points out, Logitech's iPad keyboard covers contain virtually the same batteries. The Touch Cover naming, which Microsoft has also used with Surface cases in the past, points to a keyboard on the inside of the case as well. Whether or not the Microsoft iPad Touch Cover ever sees the light of day remains to be seen, but the two companies have been collaborating more frequently in recent years. The Office suite finally came to the iPad and iPhone back in 2014 -- apps which just so happen to work better with keyboards.

          Can't get ebook apps to recognize Calibre        
Hi, I'm having an issue with Android ebook apps not being able to connect to Calibre. I can access my library from web browsers. I've tried Alreader (my usual reader), CoolReader, Moon Reader, and several others. I did connect to my library from the Bookari app, though I'm not certain that Bookari is accessing Calibre as an odps app or a web browser. I've never seen it from a reader app before :blink:. Bookari's view of my library looks and acts identical to what I get from a web browser. I've tried tacking on odps to the regualr url and the wireless access URL. Suggestions?
          pokemon perla y diamante        
aunque no lo crean les doy ´´algunas cosas sobre el juego recien salido de pokemon``
aqui les va disfrutenlo :

Pokemon Diamante y Pokemon Perl son los dos nuevos videojuegos RPG de la cuarta generación Pokémon, desarrollados por Game Freak y publicados por Nintendo. Son las primeras versiones salidas para la consola Nintendo DS. Pokemon Diamante y Perla fueron lanzados en el mercado a comienzos del 2006. Han tenido el más impresionante éxito de ventas jamás visto en una serie de juegos de Pokemon. Además marcaron un record de ventas como los juegos Pokemon más vendidos en Japón dentro de los tres primeros meses de salir a las tiendas.Pokemon Diamante y Perla están ambientados en la región de Sinnoh, y el juego narra la aventura de un protagonista que tiene el desafío de capturar y entrenar Pokemon mientras que al mismo tiempo debe enfrentarse a la organización de criminales del Equipo Galáctico.Diamante y perla, al igual que en las anteriores generaciones de Pokemon, tienen una enorme cantidad de nuevas características, como la posibilidad de jugar a través de Internet mediante una conexión de Nintendo Wi-Fi.Trama y ambientación: Pokemon Diamante y Perla están ambientados en la región de Sinnoh, caracterizada tanto por sus montañas como por sus zonas repletas de nieve, dentro de las cuales se encuentran tres lagos centrales.El juego contiene 107 nuevos Pokemon y cronica la aventura de un nuevo entrenador Pokemon que buscará volverse el Campeón de la Liga Pokemon, recolectando y entrenando varias especies nuevas de Pokemon a lo largo de la travesía. Como en la mayoría de estos juegos de Pokemon, Diamante y Perla presentan ocho gimnasios que deben ser superados, derrotando al líder de cada uno. Los líderes tendrán también especialidades en determinadas clases de Pokemon. Para avanzar a lo largo del juego, se debe derrotarlos y conseguir sus medallas. Jugabilidad: la forma de juego es muy similar a la de los otros RPGs de Pokemon, aunque hay varios agregados que lo hacen interesante. Dentro de cada especia, ahora cada Pokemon presenta diferencias en relación a su género, incluyendo diferentes tamaños físicos o características psicológicas particulares. Por ejemplo, una hembra Wooper tiene antenas de menor tamaño que los Wooper de género masculino, y un Scizor macho tiene un abdomen menor que una hembra. Como en Pokemon Cristal y Esmeralda, los Pokemon que batallan tienen una pequeña animación cuando entran en combate. Se pueden encontrar además nuevos Pokemon bebé en Pokemon Diamante y Perla, como la preevolución de Roselia, Budew, en lugares salvajes, mientras que en las versiones anteriores se requería una crianza. También se pueden encontrar huevos Pokemon al nivel 1, mientras que en los juegos de Pokemon anteriores se encontraban a partir del nivel 5. Como se vió originalmente en Pokemon Oro y Plata, las áreas de Pokemon Diamante y Perla tienen diferentes comportamientos dependiendo del dia y la hora de la semana, lo cual se puede aprecia de diferentes maneras, no sólamente por las ambientaciones de día o de noche, sino por la capacidad de capturar ciertas especies de Pokemon dependiendo estos factores. La escala de día y noche ha crecido comparado a las versiones anteriores. Pokemon Diamante y Pokemon Perla tienen cinco diferentes períodos temporales: mañana, día, tarde, mediodia y noche. También se presenta un nuevo aparato llamado Pokétch, una especie de agenda portatil que tiene varias características como un administrador del sistema, una calculadora, un mapa, un contador, un buscador de vinculos wireless, y otras cosas más.Luego de Sinnoh se encuentra una gran área subterránea, usada para partidas multijugador. Los juegadores pueden crear y decorar "bases secretas", como se podía hacer en Pokemon Rubi y Zafiro, y participar en minijuegos, algunos de los cuales permitirán a los jugadores conseguir fósiles de Pokemon especiales como Zugaidos y Shieldon. Éstos Pokemon, como así también Mikaruge, sólo pueden ser obtenidos explorando estas áreas subterráneas.Pokemon Diamante y Perla soportan conexiones de Nintendo Wi-Fi, permitiendo de este modo a los jugadores intercambiar, batallar y comunicarse a través de un "chat de voz" en línea. El sistema principal donde se pueden intercambiar Pokemon es la Estación Global de Intercambio. Ésta le permitirá a los jugadores buscar por cualquier Pokemon que hallan visto antes, ¡en todo el mundo!, o sea, mostrando gente de todos lados del globo que quieran intercambiar el Pokemon que estás buscando. Una buena ventaja que se añade a este sistema es la posibilidad de trabajar offline, así que no tienes que estar conectado esperando que alguien aparezca con el Pokemon que buscas, puedes dejar la órden y completar la operación mientras no estás conectado.Algunos centros sirven para diferentes propósitos, algunos permiten al jugador entrar en batalla contra amigos a través de una conexión a Internet, mientras que otros permiten al jugador entrar en la unión Pokemon, una sala de chat en donde los jugadores pueden comunicarse entre ellos y agregarse a sus Listas de Amigos. Además de los 50 conocidos MT, que enseñan a los Pokemon un nuevo movimiento, se agregaron 42 MT nuevas, llegando de esta forma a 92 en total.Relación con otros juegos Pokemon: Pokemon Diamante y Perla tienen una amplia compatibilidad con otros juegos Pokemon. Puedes conectarte con cualquier juego Pokemon de GBA para obtener la Pokedex Nacional. Además, Pokemon Diamante y Perla pueden ser conectados con Pokemon Ranger. Usando esta característica un jugador va a poder enviar, por ejemplo, un huevo Manaphy desde Pokemon Ranger a Pokemon Diamante y Perla luego de completar la misión especial para obtener dicho huevo en Pokemon Ranger. Además, Diamante y Perla presentan conectividad Wi-Fi con los Pokemon de la consola Wii, como Pokemon Battle Revolution.

          [news] "2004 State of Application Development"        
Friday, August 13, 2004
Dateline: China
 
Special issues of journals and magazines are often quite good -- if you're into the subject matter.  But the current issue of VARBusiness is absolutely SUPERB!!  EVERY SYSTEMS INTEGRATOR SHOULD READ IT ASAP -- STOP WHAT YOU'RE DOING AND READ THIS ISSUE!!  (Or, at the very least, read the excerpts which follow.)  See http://tinyurl.com/6smzu .  They even have the survey results to 36 questions ranging from change in project scope to preferred verticals.  In this posting, I'm going to comment on excerpts from this issue.  My comments are in blue.  Bolded excerpted items are MY emphasis.
 
The lead article and cover story is titled, "The App-Dev Revolution."  "Of the solution providers we surveyed, 72 percent say they currently develop custom applications or tailor packaged software for their customers. Nearly half (45 percent) of their 2003 revenues came from these app-dev projects, and nearly two-thirds of them expect the app-dev portion of total revenue to increase during the next 12 months."  I view this as good news for China's SIs; from what I've observed, many SIs in China would be a good fit for SIs in the U.S. looking for partners to help lower their development costs.  "By necessity, today's solution providers are becoming nimbler in the software work they do, designing and developing targeted projects like those that solve regulatory compliance demands, such as HIPAA, or crafting wireless applications that let doctors and nurses stay connected while they roam hospital halls."  Have a niche; don't try to be everything to everyone.  "Nine in 10 of survey respondents said their average app-dev projects are completed in less than a year now, with the smallest companies (those with less than $1 million in revenue) finishing up in the quickest time, three months, on average."  Need for speed.  "The need to get the job done faster for quick ROI might explain the growing popularity of Microsoft's .Net framework and tools.  In our survey, 53 percent of VARs said they had developed a .Net application in the past 12 months, and 66 percent of them expect to do so in the coming 12 months."  My Microsoft build-to-their-stack strategy.  "Some of the hottest project areas they report this year include application integration, which 69 percent of VARs with between $10 million or more in revenue pinned as their busiest area.  Other top development projects center around e-commerce applications, CRM, business-intelligence solutions, enterprisewide portals and ERP, ..."  How many times have I said this?    "At the same time, VARs in significant numbers are tapping open-source tools and exploiting Web services and XML to help cut down on expensive software-integration work; in effect, acknowledging that application development needs to be more cost-conscious and, thus, take advantage of open standards and reusable components.  Our survey found that 32 percent of VARs had developed applications on Linux in the past six months, while 46 percent of them said they plan to do so in the next six months.  The other open-source technologies they are using today run the gamut from databases and development tools to application servers."  I guess there's really an open source strategy.  I come down hard on open source for one simple reason:  I believe that SIs in China could get more sub-contracting business from a build-to-a-stack strategy.  And building to the open source stack isn't building to a stack at all!!  "As a business, it has many points of entry and areas of specialization.  Our survey participants first arrived in the world of app dev in a variety of ways, from bidding on app-dev projects (45 percent) to partnering with more experienced developers and VARs (28 percent) to hiring more development personnel (31 percent)."  For SIs in China, simply responding to end-user RFQs is kind of silly.  Better to partner on a sub-contracting basis.  "According to our State of Application Development survey, health care (36 percent), retail (31 percent) and manufacturing (30 percent) ranked as the most popular vertical industries for which respondents are building custom applications.  Broken down further, among VARs with less than $1 million in total sales, retail scored highest, while health care topped the list of midrange to large solution providers."  Because of regulatory issues, I'm not so keen on health care.  I'd go with manufacturing followed by retail.  My $ .02.  "When it comes to partnering with the major platform vendors, Microsoft comes out the hands-on winner among ISVs and other development shops.  A whopping 76 percent of developers in our survey favored the Microsoft camp.  Their level of devotion was evenly divided among small, midsize and large VARs who partner with Microsoft to develop and deliver their application solutions.  By contrast, the next closest vendor is IBM, with whom one in four VARs said they partner.  Perhaps unsurprisingly, the IBM percentages were higher among the large VAR category (those with sales of $10 million or more), with 42 percent of their partners coming from that corporate demographic.  Only 16 percent of smaller VARs partner with IBM, according to the survey.  The same goes for Oracle: One-quarter of survey respondents reported partnering with the Redwood Shores, Calif.-based company, with 47 percent of them falling in the large VAR category.  On the deployment side, half of the developers surveyed picked Windows Server 2003/.Net as the primary platform to deliver their applications, while IBM's WebSphere application server was the choice for 7 percent of respondents.  BEA's WebLogic grabbed 4 percent, and Oracle's 9i application server 3 percent of those VARs who said they use these app servers as their primary deployment vehicle."  Microsoft, Microsoft, Microsoft.  Need I say more?  See http://tinyurl.com/45z94 .
 
The next article is on open source.  "Want a world-class database with all the bells and whistles for a fraction of what IBM or Oracle want?  There's MySQL.  How about a compelling alternative to WebSphere or WebLogic?  Think JBoss.  These are, obviously, the best-known examples of the second generation of open-source software companies following in the footsteps of Apache, Linux and other software initiatives, but there are far more alternatives than these.  Consider Zope, a content-management system downloaded tens of thousands of times per month free of charge, according to Zope CEO Rob Page.  Some believe Zope and applications built with Zope are better than the commercial alternative they threaten to put out of business, Documentum.  Zope is also often used to help build additional open-source applications.  One such example is Plone, an open-source information-management system.  What began as a fledgling movement at the end of the past decade and later became known as building around the "LAMP stack" (LAMP is an acronym that stands for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP or Perl) has exploded to virtually all categories of software.  That includes security, where SpamAssassin is battling spam and Symantec, too.  Popular?  Well, it has now become an Apache Software Foundation official project.  The use of open source is so widespread that the percentage of solution providers who say they partner with MySQL nearly equals the percentage who say they partner with Oracle"23 percent to 25 percent, respectively.There are plenty of choices for those SIs willing to play the open source game.  See http://tinyurl.com/4e3c7 .
 
"It's all about integration" follows.  "There are many reasons for the surge in application-development projects (the recent slowdown in software spending notwithstanding).  For one, many projects that were put on hold when the downturn hit a few years ago are now back in play.  That includes enterprise-portal projects, supply-chain automation efforts, various e-commerce endeavors and the integration of disparate business systems."  Choose carefully, however.  Balance this data with other data.  Right now, I see a lot more play with portals and EAI.  "Indeed, the need for quality and timely information is a key driver of investments in application-integration initiatives and the implementation of database and business-intelligence software and portals.  A healthy majority of solution providers say application integration is a key component of the IT solutions they are deploying for customers.  According to our application-development survey, 60 percent say their projects involved integrating disparate applications and systems during the past 12 months."  "Some customers are moving beyond enterprise-application integration to more standards-based services-oriented architectures (SOAs).  SOAs are a key building block that CIOs are looking to build across their enterprises."  Anyone who regularly reads any one of my three IT-related blogs knows that I'm gung-ho on SOAs.  "Even if your customers are not looking for an SOA, integrating different systems is clearly the order of the day.  To wit, even those partners that say enterprise portals or e-business applications account for the bulk of their business note that the integration component is key."  Yes, integration, integration, integration.  I'll be saying this next year, too.  And the year after ...  "Another way to stay on top of the competition is to participate in beta programs."  Absolutely true -- and a good strategy, too.  See http://tinyurl.com/6x2gg .
 
The next article is on utility computing versus packaged softwareAgain, if you read what I write, you know that I'm also gung-ho on utility computing.  "According to VARBusiness' survey of application developers, more than 66 percent of the applications created currently reside with the customer, while 22 percent of applications deployed are hosted by the VAR.  And a little more than 12 percent of applications developed are being hosted by a third party.   Where services have made their biggest inroads as an alternative to software is in applications that help companies manage their customer and sales information.The article goes on to state that apps that are not mission-critical have the best chance in the utility computing space.  Time will tell.  Take note, however, that these are often the apps that will most likely be outsourced to partners in China.  "Simply creating services from scratch and then shopping them around isn't the only way to break into this area.  NewView Consulting is expanding its services business by starting with the client and working backward.  The Porter, Ind.-based security consultant takes whatever technology clients have and develops services for them based on need."   And focus on services businesses and .NET, too.  "Most application developers agree that services revenue will continue to climb for the next year or two before they plateau, resulting in a 50-50 or 60-40 services-to-software mix for the typical developer.  The reason for this is that while applications such as CRM are ideally suited to services-based delivery, there are still plenty of other applications that companies would prefer to keep in-house and that are often dependent on the whims of a particular company."  Still, such a split shows a phenomenal rise in the importance of utility computing offerings.  See http://tinyurl.com/54blv .
 
Next up:  Microsoft wants you!!  (Replace the image of Uncle Sam with the image of Bill Gates!!)  Actually, the article isn't specifically about Microsoft.  "Microsoft is rounding up as many partners as it can and is bolstering them with support to increase software sales.  The attitude is: Here's our platform; go write and prosper.  IBM's strategy, meanwhile, is strikingly different.  While it, too, has created relationships with tens of thousands of ISVs over recent years,  IBM prefers to handpick a relatively select group, numbering approximately 1,000, and develop a hand-holding sales and marketing approach with them in a follow-through, go-to-market strategy."  Both are viable strategies, but NOT both at the same time!!  "To be sure, the results of VARBusiness' 2004 State of Application Development survey indicates that Microsoft's strategy makes it the No. 1 go-to platform vendor among the 472 application developers participating in the survey.  In fact, more than seven out of 10 (76 percent) said they were partnering with Microsoft to deliver custom applications for their clients.  That number is nearly three times the percentage of application developers (26 percent) who said they were working with IBM ..."  Percentages as follows:  Microsoft, 76%; IBM, 26%; Oracle, 25%; MySQL, 23%; Red Hat, 17%; Sun, 16%; Novell, 11%; BEA, 9%.  I said BOTH, NOT ALL.  Think Microsoft and IBM.  However, a Java strategy could be BOTH a Sun AND IBM strategy (and even a BEA strategy).  See http://tinyurl.com/68grf .
 
There was another article I liked called, "How to Team With A Vendor," although it's not part of the app-dev special section per se.  This posting is too long, so I'll either save it for later or now note that it has been urled.  See http://www.furl.net/item.jsp?id=680282 .  Also a kind of funny article on turning an Xbox into a Linux PC.  See http://tinyurl.com/4mhn6 .  See also http://www.xbox-linux.org .
 
Quick note:  I'll be in SH and HZ most of next week, so I may not publish again until the week of the 23rd.

          [news] Excerpt from a McKinsey Paper on IT Spending Trends        
Monday, August 9, 2004
Dateline: China
 
I recently urled the abstract for this paper, but CNET and McKinsey were kind enough to post the full-text of the paper on the CNET news site (which downloads at glacial speed, at least from China).  Now that the article from the current issue of The McKinsey Quarterly is in the public domain, I'd like to include an excerpt in this posting.  (Bolded and colored notations are MY emphasis.)
 
"Although IT customers also want to improve their software, they are wary of big-bang packaged applications--purchases that are just now rolling off accrual budgets.  This time around, CIOs are shunning expensive panaceas, especially large-scale customer relationship management (CRM) systems.  Many tech executives lost face (or jobs) when the promised benefits didn't materialize, often because the technology demanded difficult-to-realize changes in processes and in employee behavior.  Even worse than buying packaged applications, CIOs told us, was buying applications and then customizing them, for this strategy made it necessary to reinvest in customization with each subsequent upgrade.  CIOs now favor narrower, more-targeted, less-ambitious improvements that mitigate the risk of organizational rejection.  Custom software that closely adheres to a company's existing processes (and therefore requires little or no process change) is popular, and so is software developed for a specific industry.  Meanwhile, integration--a higher priority now than it was during the boom--is generating demand for enterprise application integration (EAI) technologies.  Web services are gaining traction faster than anticipated, especially in small telecom and other companies at the forefront of IT innovation.  Of the CIOs we interviewed, 8 percent said that Web services were their primary integration strategy.  Despite these inroads, most companies are still at the experimental stage with this technology, which demands advanced skills and a high degree of commitment from the IT organization.  Others are choosing a different path:  Roughly half of the CIOs we spoke with have been (or are thinking about) investing in integration broker software, often combined with Web services.  Adoption is strongest among telecommunications and financial-services companies, whose technical complexity makes the software especially attractive.  The third-party services market could feel the pinch, however.  Many companies, spurred by lower IT salaries after the economic slowdown, hired talent and brought IT development in-house.  These new hires often support and develop the more-customized applications that today's IT budgets favor.  But this move could boomerang on companies in the future:  The absence of vendor support could reduce economies of scale and push up costs.  Offshoring in less-expensive labor markets could, of course, offset them."
 
ADDENDUM: Seeing Beyond "Traditional" Market Research ...
 
I've already received a few messages regarding my "Seeing Beyond" posting.
 
One of the questions was very simple to answer.  The question:  Can you name a few ISVs in China which could develop a hosted version of their packaged software?  Certainly.  Simple answer:  Bamboo, KingdeeUFSoft (all three are in the ERP space).
 
A reader also asked me about Fisher-Pry, having heard of this technique but not really familiar with it.  In simple terms, Fisher-Pry functions best as a substitution model.  I'm not thrilled about using it to predict end of life and market size issues per seWhere I find it useful -- EXTREMELY USEFUL -- is in determining when a NEW technology is likely to EMERGE.  I then put on my Geoffrey Moore glasses to look at the technology from a chasm crossing perspective.  And, if I'm really interested, I'll put on my Ed Roberts and Gordon Bell glasses -- and will evaluate the technology using other techniques as well.  But Fisher-Pry itself is extremely simple to use and a Geoffrey Moore analysis is also a no-brainer.  (Ed Roberts' -- and I'm the unofficial president of the Ed Roberts fan club -- various approaches to evaluating new markets and technologies requires me to fire a lot more neurons than Moore's approach.)  To me, Fisher-Pry is all about inflection points and EMERGING marketsTo see an application of Fisher-Pry, read an A.T. Kearney report on wireless futures at http://tinyurl.com/4zcas (and it's an excellent report, too).  See also a recent evaluation of the remote sensing market at http://tinyurl.com/6zxqm .  For a brief review of Fisher-Pry and a couple of related techniques for technology trend analysis, see http://tinyurl.com/4hf7t .
 
Finally, another reader questioned whether MIT's Innovation Futures market was doomed to focus on short(er)-term "bets."  My answer is that MIT may need to repackage Innovation Futures for addressing long(er)-term issues.  Many of us in America can remember playing the stock market in one of our classes.  For me, it was in my eighth grade government class.  We had to pick stocks and trade them through the course of the year.  Unfortunately, the very nature of this learning experience put a premium on trading versus investing.  In other words, picking stocks which might be solid over a three-plus year time horizon simply wouldn't work; it was much better to "gamble" on high Beta (i.e., higher volatility) issues.  Innovation Futures suffers from the same "need" to determine winners and losers on a relatively timely basis.  Probably time horizons of three or more years won't suffice, at least not from a "gamblers" perspective (sans venture capitalists).
 
I'd like to see their system changed to allow different types of "players" and "traders," namely the crop I had suggested in my last posting, but also another class of "all others."  Think of this as an experiment in social computing among technophiles, not online gambling.  In some ways, it could reveal the type of knowledge that is found in the blogosphere.

          [news] Cognizant & the "Intelligent Internet" + a Peek at 2005 IT Budgets (Part 2 of 2)        
Sunday, August 1, 2004
Dateline: China
 
Ah, the World Future Society.  Much to say about the WFS, but I'll save it for the end of this post.  An article which appears in the March-April 2004 issue of The Futurist was reprinted in a recent issue of Government Computer News (see http://tinyurl.com/yrp2w ); the original paper which was the basis for The Futurist article is also available (see http://tinyurl.com/5ymos ).  The article focuses heavily on findings from the TechCast Project at George Washington University (see http://www.techcast.org ; BTW, they're seeking beta testers).
 
The article acknowledges hype during the bubble, but goes on to indicate that 20 commercial aspects of Internet use should reach 30% "take-off" adoption levels over the next several years -- and will rejuvenate the (American) economy.  One area of particular interest is a "conversational" human-computer interface, called "TeleLiving," based on advances in speech recognition, AI, hardware/grid computing, virtual environments and flat wall monitors.  (Sounds like stuff out of PARC and Microsoft Research.)
 
Their Project results "portray a striking scenario in which the dominate forms of e-commerce - broadband, business-to-business (B2B), online finance, entertainment-on-demand, wireless, e-training, knowledge-on-demand, electronic public services, online publishing, e-tailing - grow from their present 5%-20% adoption levels to 30% between 2004 and 2010.  TechCast considers the 30% penetration level significant because this roughly marks the 'take-off point' when technologies move from their early-adopter phase into the mainstream, where they permeate economic and social life."  (Think of chasm crossing.  Also think of expeditionary marketing within the context of broadband.  BTW, bolded and colored items are MY emphasis.)
 
The authors discuss the notion that many think that the Internet is already mainstream, yet challenge that notion by stating that this is true only for nonpaying use, citing surfing for free information as one example.  "As of 2003, commercial operations involving monetary exchange were limited to about 23% for broadband, 10% for e-tailing, 12% for B2B, 10% for distance learning, and 5% for music.  And these are the most popular Internet applications.  Others hardly register in adoption levels at all."  Bottom line:  It's all about e-commerce, I guess.  Jerry Maguire said it best. 
 
A Look at 2005 IT Spending
 
Not as much as I had originally hoped for in the Forrester glimpse at 2005 IT budgets, but some things to note.  (See http://tinyurl.com/67pse .)  Example:  52% of finance and insurance firms -- led by insurers -- will spend more on IT in 2005.  Okay, sounds like an opportunity for SIs (systems integrators) building .NET solutions.  (For those who don't know, Microsoft has fairly strong solutions for the insurance vertical.)  At the subvertical level, media and nongovernment public sector plays look good, whereas the utilities and transportation sectors look weak.  Also, Siebel and PeopleSoft customers are planning to spend more on IT relative to customers of other key vendors, most notably SAP.  (I don't see this, but I don't dispute their data.  Frankly, I think we'll see a lot of activity for SAP SIs in 2005.  P'Soft is too hard to tell, especially with the confusion caused by Oracle.  Oracle benefits whether the acquisition goes through or not!!  It's the FUD factor.)
 
Not to be outdone, AMR came out with their peek at 2005 budgets for SMEs (small and medium enterprises).  (See http://tinyurl.com/5vlvo .  I got a lot more out of the AMR report.)  Something that is rather common knowledge among IT analysts, but may not be known by those not involved in the IT budgeting process, is that a typical large U.S. manufacturer spends 2% of its annual revs (i.e., revenues) on IT and a large service firm spends 5%.  However, the average for U.S. SMEs is 6.4% of revs, although a good chunk is for basic IT infrastructure.
 
CRM looks like a hot item for U.S. SMEs and the AMR report makes an interesting comment about the perceived need for other countries to implement a "keeping up with the Joneses" strategy.  This being said, then domestic firms in China may follow suit.  As far as operating systems are concerned, there is only one:  Windows.  And U.S. SMEs spend about 20% of their IT budget on software and software maintenance, with discrete manufacturers outspending process manufacturers or retailers.  Typical apps are for financial management and customer management, although expensive CRM suites (think Siebel or Oracle) are rare.  Sounds like an opportunity for utility computing vendorsBottom line:  If the SMEs market is your key market (by size), then go with Microsoft CRM solutions!
 
Fast Forward Over Three Decades
 
At this point, I'm going to get a bit personal.  If you're not interested, simply skip the remainder of this message:  It briefly covers three decades and my so-called "futurist" origins.
 
The first "adult" organization I ever joined was the World Future Society.  (Remember, the basis for the first section of this posting was an article published in their flagship publication, The Futurist.)  The year was 1971.  I had been an adolescent "futurist" since March 1968, the month that my father bought me a copy of Sky & Telescope magazine.  Although the Vietnam War was on the news each night, I was simply too young for it to really matter.  Both the war and protests against the war were merely uninspiring TV images.
 
But something caught my imagination and that "something" was the space program.  I can still recall the liftoff of Apollo 11 on July 16, 1969 at 6:32 am PDT.  Believe it or not, I can still recite the countdown.  I can also recite part of the landing sequence of the Eagle -- the Lunar Excursion Module housing Neil Armstrong and Edwin E. "Buzz" Aldrin.  And, of course, I can remember Neil Armstrong stepping off the foot of the LEM on July 20th, probably around 7 or 7:30 pm.  Two movies also inspired me toward a "tech" future:  The obvious, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and the not-so-obvious, The Andromeda Strain.  (My parents didn't let me stay up to watch Star Trek, so Star Trek didn't have any impact on my life during my early adolescence.)  Although I have been a member of the L-5 Society and the British Interplanetary Society (anyone remember Project Daedalus?), the World Future Society was the most influential organization in my life during my high school years.  Well, a wee bit of personal history.  Those were the good 'ol days ...

          FirstNet: Putting Lifesaving Technologies into the Hands of Heroes        
FirstNet is putting 21st century, lifesaving technology into the hands of American heroes – America’s first responders.

In connection with American Heroes Week (July 24—28, 2017), the U.S. Department of Commerce is proud to highlight its own American heroes and the important role Commerce agencies play in serving and protecting American communities.  

Right now, an area the size of New York City is ablaze in western Montana. The Lodgepole Complex fire has grown to encompass more than 250,000 acres. Although it is the largest fire, it is only one of 19 currently burning across the state in what has been a particularly intense fire season.

Pushing hard through intense heat, danger and exhaustion are firefighters, police officers, paramedics and other first responders – brave women and men doing everything in their power to protect citizens, homes, livestock and land. These first responders dedicate their lives to protecting communities across our nation and are true America’s heroes. And the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet), an independent agency within the Department of Commerce, is working to equip them with the lifesaving, 21st-century communication technology they need to do their jobs.

Why FirstNet?

Today, in emergencies and at large events, heavy public cell phone use can lead to wireless communications networks becoming overloaded and inaccessible. In those instances, public safety users are treated the same as any other commercial or enterprise user – meaning they can’t use their cell phones or wireless communication equipment when they need it the most. That’s where FirstNet comes in.

When Congress created FirstNet in 2012, it began fulfilling a recommendation of the 9/11 Commission to provide first responders with a secure, dedicated high-speed network that is available to first responders when and where they respond.

A “fast lane” for public safety communications

With FirstNet, public safety will get a dedicated “fast lane” that provides highly secure communications every day and for every emergency. FirstNet will deliver specialized features to public safety that are not available on wireless networks today including priority access, more network capacity, and a resilient and hardened connection. With FirstNet, first responders also will have access to devices connecting them to innovative, life-saving technologies.

For those fire fighters in Montana, and for first responders across the nation, FirstNet can provide vital technologies, tools and services during emergencies, such as:

  • Applications that allow first responders to reliably share videos, text messages, photos and other information during incidents in near real-time;
  • Advanced capabilities like camera-equipped drones and robots that can deliver images of wildfires, floods or other events;
  • Improved location services to help with mapping capabilities during rescue and recovery operations;
  • Wearables that could relay biometric data of a patient to the hospital or alert when a first responder is in distress.

A vital tool for our nation’s heroes

As Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross noted when he announced FirstNet’s selection of AT&T as its network partner: “FirstNet is a critical infrastructure project that will give our first responders the communications tools they need to keep America safe and secure.”

As the network deploys this year, it will provide the American heroes of the public safety community the powerful, dedicated communications network they need to do their jobs– now and in the future.

          Apple iOS 7        

When earlier in September when Apple launched its biggest update to its mobile operating system iOS, there has been mixed reaction initially. But lately it seems like Apple will be having hard time receiving the bug and fixing it, because there are just a lot of them. From small good features to pretty big frustrating problems, the iOS 7 has it all. Well, we'll be looking into deep in iOS 7 - the good and the bad.


Starting from the good features ->

1. Clock icon

Yes, you heard that. A clock working at the top of the scree. Take a look.

2. Text Time-stamps

Also new, if you'll slide texts you can see time-stamps for all of them.

3. The Level

Just open up your compass app and slide your fingers across it, and congratulations because you just unraveled a new feature. So now, say goodbye to those tilted paintings.

4.Night mode for maps

When you are driving late, your bright apple screen can very blinding and cause you many problems. In this, the screen appears dark at certain times to prevent that problem.This is less distracting and easier on the eyes when navigating at night.

5. Closing multiple apps at once.

Yes, you can close multiple apps at once.Here's how: double click the home button to reveal open webpages and platforms.You can then swipe up to three apps at once by using three fingers and dragging them upwards.

6. Block calls

Well, if you are getting annoying calls you have now the liberty to just block them. Visit Settings > Phone > Blocked to add numbers you want to restrict.

7. Apps near me

Now this is an interesting feature. When you visit the Apple app store, you'll se something like "near me" at the bottom. This is region specific apps. It means if you are, suppose, in Manhattan then it will show you those apps which are downloaded most on that region.

OK, now coming to the bad features ->

Well it certainly looks like they'll never ending reporting. But getting familiar with very common drawbacks in iOS 7.

1. Security Glitches

It was the problem at the starting, but now fixed by Apple. iOS 7 security flaw allowed for the circumvention of a device's lockscreen,as reported CNET . From a locked phone or iPad, swiping up to access the alarm clock app and following a couple extra steps brought up the iOS 7 multitasking screen where you could access the camera app or photo gallery. This opened a clear path to Twitter, email and other accounts. Apple replied quickly to this vulnerability by releasing an iOS 7.0.2 update late last week, fixing the bug.

2. Unwanted Logouts

One problem that’s vexed iOS 7 users and developers alike is a glitch that logs users out of some apps, according to The Verge , prompting a sign-in screen each time an app with a unique account is accessed. Popular iOS email app Mailbox was “in crisis mode” shortly after the release of iOS 7, attempting to fix the software conflict as users grew agitated. According to Mailbox, the only solution, though a temporary one, is to disable iOS 7’s new background refresh feature, though this removes the app’s ability to receive updated information while in the background. This issue remains unaddressed.

3. Battery life

It has been reported highly by many users that this update just drains out the juice of your device very quickly. iOS 7 is more like iOS 7% left of battery.As reported by PC Magazine , the difference in power consumption is often hard to quantify, seeing as each user uses his or her phone differently and with unique configurations, though it is worth mentioning that Apple did address a similar battery drain claim with a patch to its iOS 5 software. In the meantime, some sites have compiled best practices lists  to aid users in conserving battery life, suggesting things like turning off background app updates and disabling AirDrop (Apple’s new wireless file sharing service). For example, theHuffington Post's Alexis Kleinman put together this primer on how to save battery life with iOS 7 .

4. Motion Sickness

There is another weird claim that is getting high concern. It makes users sick. As a report from NBC News asserts , iOS 7’s new 3D desktop might be giving iPhoners vertigo-like symptoms.

5. iMESSAGE problems.

A lot of people switching to iOS 7 are reporting the malfunctioning of iMESSAGE, Apple's all-encompassing messaging platform for texting and desktop chatting. According to The Wall Street Journal , Apple has acknowledged the bug and is looking to the resolve the issue as soon as it can. Tech site BGR has reported  that we should expect this fix to come next week by way of Apple's second patch update to iOS 7.

6. Design Flaws

Then there are the visual imperfections. One place to get a glimpse of all the places where iOS 7 is a bit off in design and compatibility with third-party apps is sloppyui.tumblr.com . Though this user-submitted Tumblr is described as being “all about intellectual honesty, not trolling,” it’s full of, well, sloppy design inconsistencies and errors, and seems a little troll-y.

Now, looking at these bugs or say flaws one might say that they are so picky and almost every OS have them in one way or another. But guys, the thing is that its not what you think. These small things make up your best user experience. Apple didn't get the launch it needed with iOS 7 as it was the Apple's largest update to its mobile operating system since iOS was introduced in 2007. Though there are a lot of other changes which took a big leap from iOS 6 to iOS 7. But this time it will take a little more time to adopt those changes.

          NIST Awards $38.5 Million to Accelerate Public Safety Communications Technologies

The following is a cross-post from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)

The U.S. Commerce Department’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has awarded $38.5 million to 33 research and development (R&D) projects aimed at advancing broadband communications technologies for first responders.

“Through programs like FirstNet, President Trump and this administration are working hard to keep Americans safe,” said Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross. “These grant awards will help fulfill our mission, ensuring that first responders have access to advanced tools that can save lives.”

The multiyear grants are intended to help modernize public safety communications and operations by supporting the migration of data, video and voice communications from mobile radio to a nationwide public safety broadband network, as well as accelerating critical technologies related to indoor location tracking and public safety analytics.

The grants are part of the Public Safety Innovation Accelerator Program funded by NIST’s $300 million allocation from the 2015 auction of advanced wireless service licenses. The Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012 provided the funding so that NIST could conduct an R&D program to help public safety overcome critical technical barriers, spur innovation as well as investment in public safety broadband, and realize the full potential of wireless broadband capabilities.

NIST reviewed 162 proposals from a diverse pool of national and international applicants across industry, academia and public safety organizations. The 33 selected projects span five key technology areas that have the potential to greatly enhance public safety communications and operations:

  • Mission Critical Voice (moving from traditional radios to cellular systems)
  • Location-Based Services (conducting indoor positioning, navigation and mapping)
  • Public Safety Analytics (handling and exploiting more data)
  • Research and Prototyping Platforms (enabling low-cost R&D tools)
  • Resilient Systems (ensuring systems work in poor conditions)

Additional details may be found on the Public Safety Communications Research website.  A full list of the awardees and their projects can be found here.


          Top 10 Free Hacking Tools.        
If you start working with computer, you soon develop a interest in 'hacking'. So, what is basically 'hacking'? It's not just entering into another system, its a chain of processes that ultimately results in unauthorized access into one's computer or network. Yeah, it is not true. And you need special set of skills to achieve that. And for that special set skills you need a special set of tools. So now, I'm going to tell u here top 10 soft wares that will definitely help you to achieve what you dream as hacker.

1.Nmap


Nmap (“Network Mapper”) is a free and open source (license) utility for network discovery and security auditing. Nmap uses raw IP packets in novel ways to determine what hosts are available on the network, what services (application name and version) those hosts are offering, what operating systems (and OS versions) they are running, what type of packet filters/firewalls are in use, and dozens of other characteristics.

2.Wireshark



Wireshark is a network protocol analyzer. It lets you capture and interactively browse the traffic running on a computer network.

3.Metasploit Community edition



Metasploit Community Edition simplifies network discovery and vulnerability verification for specific exploits, increasing the effectiveness of vulnerability scanners. This helps prioritize remediation and eliminate false positives, providing true security risk intelligence.

4.Nikto2

          Kingston Wi-Drive - PC Magazine        

Design, File Support, and Streaming
Flip over an older iPhone 3G or 3GS, and you could mistake it for the Wi-Drive. The small drive measures 4.8 by 2.4 by 0.4 inches (HWD), and won’t take up too much space in your bag. It has a minimal look, with a logo on its front along with a light that blinks when data is being transferred and LED indicators for Internet and device connectivity. The Power button lives on the right; it blinks when it’s charging and glows when it’s on. Otherwise, there’s not much to see here.

In my mind, the most compelling reason to buy the Wi-Drive (unless you bought a 64GB device and just really need more storage) is that it makes it easier to add content to your devices. Rather than relying on iTunes, managing your content is a simple, drag-and-drop operation. When you plug the Wi-Drive into your computer (PC or Mac), it shows up just like any other external hard drive, and you can drag and drop files right onto the drive. Kingston suggests organizing your files into folders like “Music” and “Videos,” but you don’t need to.

You can add any type of file to the drive, but you’ll only be able to stream files that iOS devices support. For me, that limit was felt most in video, since the Wi-Drive won’t play .AVI files. Music, images and documents are more versatile.

The companion to the Wi-Drive is a free app that connects to the drive and streams content. The app is where you control everything on the Wi-Drive, from setting an optional Wi-Fi password to upgrading the firmware. The upside is that the interface is better than just using a file manager, and initiating the connection is as simple as launching an app; the downside is that it means, at least until Kingston develops more apps, you can’t stream content to anything other than an iOS device (iPhone, iPod (ipod touch firmware 3.1.3 download) touch, or iPad).

Once you download the app from the App Store and install it, getting content playing is simple. Turn on the Wi-Drive, and wait for the blinking blue light that means it’s broadcasting. Go to Settings on your iOS device, and choose the “Wi-Drive” Wi-Fi network. (The Wi-Drive supports 102.11g and n.) Once you’re connected, just fire up the Wi-Drive app and it’ll automatically catalog what’s on your drive. (Once, I had the app hang while trying to look through the hard drive, but a quick restart solved the problem.) Select a file to view from the simple, list-based menu, and it plays back in the app.

Kingston Wi-Drive Screenshot

You can stream from the Wi-Drive to as many as three iOS devices, which makes the drive a perfect solution for family car trips. I tested that theory, streaming the same video to an iPad, an iPhone, and an iPod (ipod touch firmware 3.1.3 download) touch simultaneously. The Wi-Drive worked well, and streamed to all three devices without any noticeable drop in quality. There was, however, a longer buffering period when more than one device was connected, as well as the occasional stutter in playback that I never encountered with only one device connected.

The Wi-Drive is rated for four hours of playback, which was close to what I experienced during testing. Because Wi-Fi streaming can be a power suck, be aware that it will also decrease your device’s battery life; using the two together is not a long-lasting solution. The Wi-Drive charges through its USB port, so it’ll charge and sync at the same time.

There were a couple of other, mostly minor issues, that I encountered when testing the Wi-Drive. When you plug the Wi-Drive into a computer, it stops broadcasting its wireless signal, and my devices would revert back to the Wi-Fi network they were connected to before, forcing me to re-connect manually once the Wi-Drive was unplugged. You can, fortunately, still access the Internet on your device while connected to the Wi-Drive, since it has a Wi-Fi passthrough feature. You’ll see serious speed drops, though. This is definitely a more useful device when there’s no other Wi-Fi connection around, but how often is that the case? The Wi-Drive also got a bit hot while streaming, but not problematically so.

The Wi-Drive is a handy gadget to have if you need more storage, want a backup of important files, or want to stream a movie to all your kids’ devices at once. AT $ 150 or $ 200, though, it’s an expensive add-on, especially when you compare it to traditional external hard drives. For the price you’re better off with a drive like Seagate’s GoFlex Satellite Mobile Wireless Storage ($ 199, 3.5 stars), which packs a lot more storage (500GB), supports more devices, and performs better as a regular external hard drive.

          How to Improve B2B Marketing Materials Already Blessed with a B2C Feel        

Overview

Our first tune-up of September 2006 analyzes a product description for The Palm® Treo™ 700w and 700wx smartphones.

Companies like Palm, Apple, and WebEx are known for their extraordinary branding prowess. Part of what makes their B2B Marketing material so impressive is a consistent, benefits-oriented, B2C feeling in all their literature.

More specifically, they know to use the second-person voice. They avoid passive sentences at all costs. Verbs are always close by. They’re clear, direct, and polished too. No question, these companies know the value of great copy and it shows.

Taking on the product description for Palm’s flagship smartphone is a challenge. It took some time to find room for improvement, but it’s there if we look hard enough.

Full disclosure before going further – I spent 1999 working at Palm as a developer of classroom and web-based training for their technical support staff. I left in December of that year to evangelize e-learning standards with Saba.

Break with Tradition to Find Room for Improvement

In reviewing Palm and similar sites, a pattern emerged. For a given product, it’s common to find mention of a technology the product incorporates without a clear explanation of how said technology will benefit the customer. It’s as if there was some urgent need to include a reference to the technology or lose face to a competitor guilty of the same awkward convention.

To break with this “tradition,” I state a benefit for any technology the product description mentions in passing. This lengthens the description but the extra clarity is justified especially when an additional product benefit enters the foreground.

Accept the Challenge – Assume Your Audience is Ignorant and Lazy

At the risk of sounding politically incorrect, I assume the reader of this product description is, in effect, ignorant and lazy. I do this for a virtuous reason – it places an even greater challenge on the writer to satisfy the reader’s need for clear and complete ideas.

While I don’t know the guiding assumptions the original writer used to gauge the audience, here are mine. The reader:

  • Wants to gain a working understanding of the product
  • Is unfamiliar with the specific technologies mentioned in this description
  • Does not want to leave the page to learn more about any particular aspect of the product - if possible

Copywriting Tune-up

So, the challenge for this tune-up is to make the product description:

  • Rely less on links and more on inline copy
  • Easier to read and understand
  • Retain its classy tone and enticing quality

Readability Statistics

The ease of reading index improves by a hard-earned 24%. Note how the grade level needed to follow the passage comfortably drops by more than 2 years.

More sentences of shorter length in the After snippet go a long way towards improving the ease of reading index and reducing the grade level.

Unlike previous tune-ups, the After snippet uses more words and characters. This derives from the need to explain unfamiliar technical terms or at least mention the benefit they deliver – i.e., the “break with tradition” mentioned above and discussed at greater length below.

It’s Not About You and Me. It’s About Me and Me Only - The Reader

The first sentence of the Before snippet opens with the company name and product. Because it’s a technical product and it’s assumed, I, the reader, know nothing about it, I’m forced to think before I can even see what’s in it for me. When the sentence ends, I have some vague idea the product won’t skimp on any of its features but what it means to me remains unclear.

The After snippet opens with a 3 word sentence beginning with an action verb. Already we know we won’t be skimping on features and we haven’t even mentioned the company or product name yet. Even before the second sentence mentions the company and product name, we clearly understand what’s in it for me – boosting my productivity.

Turn Features into Benefits with Action Verbs

Sure, maybe I’m being extreme to assume the reader doesn’t know what wireless email is, but it’s not so obvious with some of the other features like “Windows Mobile® Direct Push Technology” or “rich-media capabilities.” The Before snippet lists these features as straight-up nouns tied to the pronoun, “They.” This makes it harder for me, as a reader, to picture myself enjoying the product because the passage directs me to contemplate “what” this is as opposed to “how” using it will make my life easier.

The After snippet breaks up the very long second sentence into several shorter ones. Each feature is preceded by a verb, which transforms it into a benefit. The third sentence makes it clear I can retrieve wireless email quickly (benefit) as opposed to the device having “the ability to do so” (feature).

Supply a Benefit for Every Technology Important Enough to Mention

The Before snippet slips in a reference to “Windows Mobile® Direct Push Technology” without explaining why the reader should care. I can understand the need to list it especially if competing products also incorporate this technology. So, let’s go one up on the competition and let the reader know how this technology enhances their experience.

To make good on this directive, I had to do some research about “Windows Mobile® Direct Push Technology.” The data sheets for these Palm smartphones don’t mention this technology in any explicit way. I went to Microsoft’s site to get the low-down.

Armed with this understanding of the technology, it remains fuzzy as to how these smartphones apply it to make the user more productive. Because the technology requires Microsoft Exchange Server, I figure it has to do with email applications. Also, the Before snippet states, “Your contacts are always reachable…”

Based on these inputs, I make the educated guess this technology makes certain I have the most up-to-date contact information for whomever I’m trying to reach at any given moment.

If I’ve got this wrong or the benefits extend beyond managing contact information, someone from Palm is welcome to comment.

Cancel Corporate Speak at Every Opportunity

The Before snippet, as many similar web sites do, uses the term, “rich-media capabilities.” Perhaps, by now, the market understands what this means, but in the interest of engaging the reader fully, we can transform this conceptual noun into a concrete verb by saying, “Take in rich audio and video.” “Take in” works well because it has positive connotations about fulfilling our senses. Breaking out “rich media” into “rich audio and video” reinforces this conversion of a feature into a benefit by eliminating ambiguity.

Don’t Let an Unclear Subject-Verb Connection Diminish a Benefit

The Before snippet closes the last sentence of the first paragraph with a hyphen followed by a clause starting with the verb, “bringing… ” It takes some study to see the subject of this verb is “They” at the very beginning of this long sentence. “ They” and “bringing” is a mismatch fueled by the list of features inserted between these two words.

Ah, but grammar is not the issue here. The net effect is to make “Palm’s world-class ease of use” merely incidental to the other features and benefits as if such ease-of-use would not be there without them.

The After snippet closes out the paragraph by making it clear “ease-of-use” is consciously “baked into” everything about the product.

Exalt Yourself - When it Really is about You

In our last tune-up, we explained how using your company name in the possessive form is like having a movie camera tilted down at its subject. It makes the subject appear less important because the viewer can “look down” upon it. This is what happens when we use the phrase, “Palm’s world-class ease of use.”

Instead, we can write, “the world-class ease-of-use of Palm.” In this form, it’s as if a movie camera were titled up at its subject. It makes the subject appear exalted because the viewer must “look up” at it.

Better still, this little change alone improved the ease of reading index by a half-point.

Choose Simpler Adjectives and Verbs for Greater Impact

In the first sentence of the second paragraph, the Before snippet uses the term “multiple ways” where the After snippet opts for “several ways.” The former is more conceptual and less friendly to those who wish to forget math class.

The next sentence is fine as is though “reachable” is a bit abstract. The After snippet opens with an action verb and follows it with “anytime from any application” to keep the meaning clear and simple.

The third sentence opens with an action verb and lists noun features afterwards. This is fine though preceding each feature with a verb would strengthen them individually and collectively. The After snippet uses this technique to give the reader a sense of empowerment with each one.

Use Jargon When it’s Already Defined and Generic Words Add No Value

In the second to last sentence, the Before snippet ends with the phrase, “right on your device.” The Before snippet never used “device” previously, so it could prompt some slight confusion. The After snippet uses “smartphone” instead because this term is prominent in the previous paragraph and it reinforces the value proposition of higher productivity for the reader.

Avoid Lengthy Adjectives Especially Before Generic References to Your Product

The final sentence of the Before snippet begins, “With these easy-to-use productivity devices…” A four-word adjective would dilute “smartphone,” let alone “device.”

Reinforce Benefits with Strong Second Person Voice for a Powerful Finale

The final sentence of the Before snippet does nothing to reinforce the benefits already listed. The final sentence of the After snippet refers to them collectively as “user-friendly resources at your fingertips.” This is concrete and easy-to-understand.

While the second person voice is evident in the final sentence of the Before snippet, it’s not obvious until the second clause. In the first clause, it’s not clear whether “in hand” refers to the reader or a third party.

The After snippet goes for a strong finish by using “your” in both clauses plus “you” in the second one. Finally, we get added oomph using “smartphone” instead of “device.”

Wrap-up

An extra line or two of copy can make all the difference between reasonably clear and abundantly clear. Better to err on the side of “abundant” when we want to ensure the reader comes away with:

  • Working understanding of the product
  • A clear idea of how it will make him or her more productive

Adding this extra copy helped us shave 2 years off the minimum reading skill needed to understand the value proposition. This broadens the field of potential buyers.

We maintained the sleek, B2C feel of the original while placing even greater emphasis on benefits over features. This alone is likely to boost the conversion rate on these impressive smartphones.

          Update        
Sorry for the delay on this update.  My computer's keyboard finally died on me and I had to get a new one.  I thought this would be relatively easy.  I mean how many types of keyboards can there be? Apparently millions...  I finally settled on a wireless one since they seem to be all the rage.  I think I like it although it is going to take some getting used to.  At least it has motivated me to clean a couple areas of my desk that really needed it!

The OB appointment on Wednesday went very well.  The doctor is still happy with the progress and says she could have the baby any time.  He did book her to be induced on February 4th just in case.  She has another appointment with him on Thursday February 2nd to check things out if she has not had the baby yet.

I would love to say that I have some idea when this baby will make its appearance but I really don`t.  It seems like someone has picked every day from now until the 4th and every person thinks their day is THE day.  I would love to say that it will happen this week and she won`t have to be induced but only because I don`t want to wait that long.  Nic and I are more than ready for the baby and it seems all of our family is as well.  I have daily calls from a number of people ``just checking in``.  It is nice to have so many people that love us... but I SWEAR we will not just run off to Newmarket when she goes into labour without calling anyone.  If you have not heard from us it is because nothing is happening.  Promise!

          Home Network. For Dum Dums.         
Home networking. Most of us depend on our cable/phone company to send us a little gizmo in the mail that we feel good about setting up a password on. But setting up a home network can be more satisfying that relying on WiFi alone from a two-rate modem/router/wireless access point combo you WAY overpay for on a monthly basis. With just a little knowledge, you can double your speed and enhance your entertainment and web surfing experience. All this without a tech degree from an IBM school.

Here are the basics.

First, you need a modem. That converts either your cable service or your phone service into internet and brings it into your home. That's the demarcation point -- or the point where its on you and not your internet service provider (ISP). But don't be afraid, you can do better than Comcast! In early 2014, for the home-owner, I would call this the best modem on the market:
If you buy an modem like this you will need to, sadly, call your ISP to get it activated by them. Once that happens, you can hook up a router. You may need to change the default IP of the router as they can be the same as the modem at times. Its easy though and usually in the same area you would set up your passwords. Just change the third set of numbers...for example, your modem will be 10.9.1.1 so make your router 10.9.10.1. No problem. If you want to understand what an IP is, look to YouTube. I recommend my favorite tech how-to channel later on.

Many modems have a built in router. A router translates information between different devices in your network. I recommend buying a one that is independent of your modem. Routers come in many "flavors." If you want Apple gear, they make some pretty nice routers -- even with built in back up capacity or with the ability to hook up external hard drives. A quick amazon search will give you some good suggestions.

Next, a switch. Wait, aren't there switch ports on the back of my router and why would I look into anything but wireless? Well, yes your router likely has a switch built into it (the Ethernet ports on the back), but you can EXPAND your capacity with additional switches that are fed from those ports. Why would you do that -- because you can get up to 1 gigabit of connection speed, per port, which you cannot get with wireless. Its true, some wireless is faster than wired, but not once multiple devices connect to it and certainly not within the home owner's budget. If you want to know how to run cable and hook up wall jacks throughout your home, I suggest you look to Eli the Computer Guy on YouTube for some wonderful tutorials on the subject. Not to mention that wired connections are more dependable than wireless. I put together a home network running wired connections to each room in my house and now enjoy tremendous streaming speeds between devices like my Mac and Apple TV. Watching a movie is now even simpler than popping in a DVD!
          Skype and calls over the internet        

Have you jumped on board the Skype train yet? Not sure what Skype is? Well I'll describe what Skype is and how a huge world of internet calls has opened up, making the standard wall phone a thing of the past. Not to mention I give an idea on how to save a bundle on international calls.

Skype is a software application that allows you to make PC to PC phone calls...for free. What is even cooler is if you have a webcam, you can video chat for free too. Skype has a new interface that may or may not be user-friendly depending on your tastes. For an overview of that go to CNET's video on Skype.

The gear is realatively unexciting. All you need is a mic and a set of head phones. Set up a free Skype account and off you go. You can talk completely free of charges, PC to PC, with anyone that has a Skype account. You can also makes calls to traditional phone numbers, but that costs extra.

Now, on to why I included a router in my 5 best electronics post... VoIP or Voice over IP, essentially making phone calls over a broadband internet connection started in the early 90's. With the g and now n types of wireless networks (getting back to the router), you can make phone calls without interuption over those networks. That's why the router is cool. Let me explain more, cause I can tell I haven't hooked you yet.

There are a number of wireless VoIP phones out on the market today. Here is a sampling of them:
  1. Belkin Wi-Fi for Skype
  2. Netgear SPH200W
With these, or any WiFi phone you have, all you need is a wireless signal and you're making calls for pennies on the dollar compared to a mobile phone. Not to mention, you have friends in Germany or Spain? No problem. There really isn't anything like a domestic or international call anymore. Just get online...done.

Skype has its own line up of phones as well and offers goodies on thier website like headphones and a host of wireless access points for your home.

What's the deal with VoIP? Well I'll de-mystify it for you. There are a ton of VoIP companies out there, the biggest being Vonage, Verizon and Skype (not necessarily in that order). They have a mishmash of goodies including their own routers that will turn your existing POTS (plain old telephone service) and turn them into a VoIP, to straight up VoIP phones that can hold 500 or more contacts. Some of these phones have remarkable features and fantastic user interfaces. No more "how do I transfer this call?" at work.

What if you want to use your WiFi enabled mobile phone to hop on a network? Well that's available too. Its called FMC or fixed mobile convergence. A good example of this is T-Mobile's hot spot. This service essentially lets you pick and choose between mobile minutes and WiFi freedom.

It all comes back to the router. Cut those wires, that's what I say. With the high price of copper these days, why not go wireless? Its getting faster and more powerful all the time.
          Five Best Electronics        
Here is a short list for the best electronics out there today. I'm thinking more home office users when I put this list together, so don't be PO ed if you're a network engineer or something.

Number 5.


The iPhone 3G
Few phones get it right. iPhone happens to have had a little time with their first generation and nailed it with the 3G. Its sleek style has been cloned in the Blackberry Storm, the LG Dare and the Samsung Omnia (which are decent phones for Verizon users). No one is near the place though that Apple is in offering applications (15,000 to date). One future pitfall though will be Apple's Nazi restrictions to application creation, which might affect its versatility. Not only that, but they have become very proprietary lately (not going to a universal charger). That kind of business philosophy may hinder their sales as competition flattens out across the world.

Number 4.


The Sonos music system
This one gets a D- for cost, but makes up with an A++ for everything else. I've talked about this one in previous posts, so 'nough said.

Number 3


The Epson Workforce 600 AIO wireless printer
Set up is a flash, WiFi networking doesn't let you down and the versatility is great. It is not clunky like many HP printers and the wireless capabilities are rated good to excellent.

Number 2


The Nuvi 265WT by Garmin.
This is the best all around GPS navigator available on the market. It isn't very pricey, but has a nice wide screen and turn by turn directions. Verizon's VZ navigator should just quit. For the price of a one year subscription you have this little dandy paid for and the best part is you don't have to look at your little phone screen. While number 5 on this list does include GPS, it doesn't have the great interface that Garmin does. Trust me, if you ever want to go geocaching or get up to date traffic with auto recalculating directions, this is it. Not only does it have the traffic updates, but it has blue tooth, songs and even picture capabilities. It doesn't get much better than this one without significantly increasing in price.

Number 1


The Linksys WRT 160N Wireless Router
You want something that has the power to get it done? Well look no further than this beauty. Want NAS (networked attached storage)? Well utilize its built in USB port you can power one, or with a USB hub, many external hard drives. Now you and your significant other don't have to worry about which files you stored on the laptop or on your desktop. Oh, and by the way, this router is backwards convertible, meaning you can run your old WiFi (G and B) network devices on it, no problems. When you are ready you can begin getting other things that can fully take advantage of the speed and versatility of an "N" type network.

Number 1A


OK, I lied. There are more than five on this list. The last one is a bonus, hence I call it 1A. It is the Logitech Harmony One Remote. Its the best fix for the five remotes that you have laying around your house. Its also miles beyond the universal remote that you have to find the code for your TV and half the time it doesn't work. Check it out on-line for more information, but it is super sweet and is programmed using your computer. For the ultimate is universal experiences, check out the entire line of Logitech Harmony remotes. I guarantee you won't ever worry about that remote boat ever again. Why is it so great? Well just use your computer to program what you use to watch a DVD with and your remote does the rest. Ready to watch, press the "watch DVD" button on the LCD screen and your TV will turn on, change to the correct input; your DVD player will turn on and open the tray; your sound system will change to the correct component; all you have to do is physically put the DVD in, close the tray and away you go. Plus, if you have an XBox this works with that too. XBox might have made the list too, but CNET did such a good job with it's latest Prizefight where it pitted XBox against PS3. Check it out if you have the time.

That about sums it up. Given today's economy, I wouldn't suggest going out and purchasing everything on this list because the total would be somewhere around $1650 and that's utilizing the saving power of Amazon.
          Music Players        

Now that you are better informed on the types of music files that exist out there (don't get to head-strong, we barely did a beginners course), we can talk about the music players that are available. How many kinds are they you may ask? About like the number of fish in the sea. Well, not really, but you get the point.

I'm not going to talk much about the software that's out there. It all boils down to your preference. Are you an iPod - name brand - kind of person or a Zune - break out - kind of person? Use whatever feels good on your computer, it's completely up to you. What I really want to talk about are network players.

Network players are independent devices that play music off of your home network. Now, allow me to step back a little and fill in any possible gaps for you.

Your home network is all set up on a router. You may have a combination router/modum for internet connectivity. Either way, you have a router that has more or less outputs depending on the model. I would suggest getting an "N" type router preferrably the Linksys WRT160N. Anyway, get your network set up and then look to add music to it.

As I mentioned in the original post of this series there are a few players such as:
  1. Sonos
  2. Squeezebox
  3. Grace
  4. Sangean
  5. And many more (check out Crutchfield)
These players sync up to the wireless or wired network and pull music from your devices such as computers or NAS - network attached storage (external hard drives connected via USB or stand-alone devices). No need to load your music on them, although a few do offer that option. Mostly they will pull together all the different music you have, in all the various spots and play it all.

In doing research my personal favorite is the sqeezebox, offered by Logitech (also pictured at top of this post). It's relatively inexpensive and comes with its own controller with an LCD screen to help navigate between not only all your music files, but tons of internet radio and the ever popular Pandora or Rhapsody. Another benefit of the squeezebox is that it naturally plays FLAC formated files - for the best sound experience you can get. The cool thing is you can add multiple receivers around your house, plug in speakers (or get the boombox option) and listen to any music anywhere in your house, any time. The only caveate, is you need to have the source turned on (computer or NAS).

Now, if you've got a large house or a lot of money to burn and you want the very best go with Sonos. It's got everything squeezebox does and a little more. Again, you will be paying out for it though.
          ANDROID        
Handphone / Hp Android semakin populer di dunia dan menjadi saingan serius bagi para vendor handphone yang sudah ada sebelumnya seperti Nokia, Blackberry dan iPhone.
Tapi bila anda menanyakan ke orang Indonesia kebanyakan “Apa itu Android ?” Kebanyakan orang tidak akan tahu apa itu Android, dan meskipun ada yang tahu pasti hanya untuk orang tertentu yang geek / update dalam teknologi.
Ini disebabkan karena masyarakat Indonesia hanya mengenal 3 merek handphone yaitu Blackberry, Nokia, dan merek lainnya :)

Ada beberapa hal yang membuat Android sulit (belum) diterima oleh pasar Indonesia, antara lain:

  • Kebanyakan handphone Android menggunakan input touchscreen yang kurang populer di Indonesia,
  • Android membutuhkan koneksi internet yang sangat cepat untuk memaksimalkan kegunaannya padahal Internet dari Operator selular Indonesia kurang dapat diandalkan,
  • Dan yang terakhir anggapan bahwa Android sulit untuk dioperasikan / dipakai bila dibandingkan dengan handphone lain macam Nokia atau Blackberry.

Apa itu Android

Android adalah sistem operasi yang digunakan di smartphone dan juga tablet PC. Fungsinya sama seperti sistem operasi Symbian di Nokia, iOS di Apple dan BlackBerry OS.
Android tidak terikat ke satu merek Handphone saja, beberapa vendor terkenal yang sudah memakai Android antara lain Samsung , Sony Ericsson, HTC, Nexus, Motorolla, dan lain-lain.
Android pertama kali dikembangkan oleh perusahaan bernama Android Inc., dan pada tahun 2005 di akuisisi oleh raksasa Internet Google. Android dibuat dengan basis kernel Linux yang telah dimodifikasi, dan untuk setiap release-nya diberi kode nama berdasarkan nama hidangan makanan.
Keunggulan utama Android adalah gratis dan open source, yang membuat smartphone Android dijual lebih murah dibandingkan dengan Blackberry atau iPhone meski fitur (hardware) yang ditawarkan Android lebih baik.
Beberapa fitur utama dari Android antara lain WiFi hotspot, Multi-touch, Multitasking, GPS, accelerometers, support java, mendukung banyak jaringan (GSM/EDGE, IDEN, CDMA, EV-DO, UMTS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, LTE & WiMAX) serta juga kemampuan dasar handphone pada umumnya.

Versi Android yang beredar saat ini

Tablet pertama yang memakai Honeycomb adalah tablet Motorola Xoom yang dirilis bulan Februari 2011.
Tablet Android
Google memutuskan untuk menutup sementara akses ke source code Honeycomb, hal ini dilakukan untuk mencegah perusahaan pembuat handphone menginstall Honeycomb pada smartphone.
Karena pada versi Android sebelumnya banyak perusahaan yang menggunakan Android ke dalam tablet PC yang menyebabkan pengalaman buruk penggunanya dan mengesankan citra Android tidak bagus.

Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0)

Anroid 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich diumumkan pada 10 Mei 2011 di ajang Google I/O Developer Conference (San Francisco) dan resmi dirilis pada tanggal 19 Oktober 2011 di Hongkong. “Android Ice Cream Sandwich” akan dapat digunakan baik di smartphone ataupun tablet. Fitur utama yang ditambahkan di Android 4.0 ialah Face UnlockAndroid Beam, perubahan major User Interface, dan ukuran layar standar (native screen) beresolusi 720p (high definition).

Pada tahun 2012 sekitar 630 juta smartphone akan terjual diseluruh dunia, dimana diperkirakan sebanyak 49,2% diantaranya akan menggunakan OS Android.
Data yang dimiliki Google saat ini mencatat bahwa 500.000 Handphone Android diaktifkan setiap harinya di seluruh dunia dan nilainya akan terus meningkat 4,4% /minggu.
PlatformAPI LevelDistribution
Android 3.x (Honeycomb)110,9%
Android 2.3.x (Gingerbread)9-1018,6%
Android 2.2 (Froyo)859,4%
Android 2.1 (Eclair)5-717,5%
Android 1.6 (Donut)42,2%
Android 1.5 (Cupcake)31,4%

Applikasi Android

Android memiliki basis developer yang besar untuk pengembangan applikasi, yang membuat fungsi Android menjadi lebih luas dan beragam. Android Market merupakan tempat applikasi Android didownload baik gratis ataupun berbayar yang dikelola oleh Google.
Applikasi Android di handphone
Meskipun tidak direkomendasikan, kinerja dan fitur Android dapat lebih ditingkatkan dengan melakukan Root Android. Fitur seperti Wireless Tethering, Wired Tethering, uninstall crapware, overclock prosessor, dan install custom flash ROM dapat digunakan pada Android yang sudah diroot.

Here are some of the problems you might face if you're not careful. Do you have a Zune media player?

They were able to swap files with other Zunes via WiFi, swap files with X-boxes via USB and could sync wirelessly with PCs. Some of the most popular MP3 download services include WinMX, iTunes, LimeWire, Kazaa, BearShare, Ares Galaxy, Napster, Morpheus, Real Player Store, iMesh, MSN music, Yahoo music and even Walmart. As mentioned earlier, there are many legal mp3 downloads free music sites where you can feel confident downloading your music choices.

But if we are going to load up at least a 100 songs or soundtracks, this is going to be expensive. This is a key feature that must not be overlooked. Fortunately, there are some professional ones that are ready to help you when you need them.

So be sure to check carefully. Make sure you go for services with excellent after sales technical and customer support.

          Quadraam ervaart verbeterde productiviteit, flexibiliteit én beveiliging met Windows 7 Enterprise        
Clemens Linderhof, Hoofd ICT van het Liemers College: “Als gevolg van de fusie was het ICT-landschap van Quadraam zeer gevarieerd en gebaseerd op technologieën van verschillende softwarehuizen, waaronder Microsoft. Zo’n grote diversiteit kwam niet ten goede aan de flexibiliteit en het beheer van het ICT-platform, noch aan de productiviteit van onze medewerkers en leerlingen. Ook qua beveiliging loop je een risico, want vandaag of morgen komen onze leerlingen met onbeveiligde laptop’s aan, die wireless met ons schoolnetwerk gaan communiceren.” Om dergelijke ontwikkelingen in goede banen te leiden en de diverse ICT-omgevingen te verbeteren heeft Quadraam een strategie uitgestippeld om tot één uniforme en goed te beheren werkomgeving te komen voor medewerkers én leerlingen. Clemens Linderhof: “Onderdelen van die strategie zijn onder meer de schoolbrede inzet van Windows Server 2008 als nieuwe serveromgeving, de bouw van een educatieomgeving op basis van Microsoft Live@Edu met SharePoint Server en een maximalisering van de beveiliging met Microsoft Forefront. Na het uitvoeren van een succesvolle pilot is ook de vervanging van de verouderde besturingssystemen op de werkstations door Windows 7 Enterprise onderdeel van de strategie.” Clemens Linderhof over de verouderde besturingssystemen: “Op de werkstations was Windows XP favoriet. Upgraden naar Windows Vista was geen optie, omdat Vista zúlke hoge eisen aan de hardware stelt, dat een forse investering in nieuwe pc’s nodig zou zijn. Aan de andere kant realiseerden we ons ook, dat we – door niet met de nieuwe technologie mee te gaan – het risico liepen dat applicaties en functionaliteiten op een gegeven moment niet meer te onderhouden zouden zijn.” Quadraam was in de gelegenheid om mee te doen met het Windows 7 adoptie-programma van Microsoft. Het eerste grote voordeel dat Clemens Linderhof noemt is “dat Windows 7 Enterprise geen buitensporige eisen aan de hardware stelt. Zelfs een oude grafische kaart is voor Windows 7 Enterprise geen probleem, dus een extra investering in nieuwe pc’s was niet nodig.” Voor de medewerkers ziet Clemens Linderhof als groot voordeel dat de acceptatie van Windows 7 Enterprise heel hoog is. “Je hoeft er niet voor op cursus, het werkt allemaal heel logisch, je kunt er direct mee aan de slag. En doordat Windows 7 Enterprise merkbaar sneller en stabieler is, werkt het voor hen ook prettiger. Tijdens hun werkzaamheden worden ze amper lastig gevallen met onduidelijke meldingen over fouten in de IT-omgeving.” Voor de leerlingen geldt min of meer hetzelfde. Clemens Linderhof: “Op de leerlingen-pc’s is stabiliteit het belangrijkste. Dat Windows 7 er ook nog mooi uitziet is meegenomen.” Qua beheer roemt Clemens Linderhof de deploymentfuncties: “Op Symbion hebben we Windows Server 2008 draaien en dat is met Windows 7 Enterprise een ideale combinatie. Vooral beheerfuncties komen dan goed tot hun recht, zoals een heel gemakkelijke deployment van alle werkstations. De strakke integratie met Microsoft Forefront garandeert de stabiliteit en de veiligheid van de ICT-werkomgeving.

TextNow Wireless Debuts New SIM Card For BYOD

Mobile virtual network operator TextNow Wireless has recently decided to launch a new SIM card -- specifically one that allows mobile users to use their own devices on the Sprint MVNO’s network for a price as low as $14 per month. As a Wi-Fi-centric, cloud based mobile operator, TextNow makes full use of software that enables smooth switching back and forth between Wi-Fi connections and cellular networks. Furthermore, the company is always monitoring Wi-Fi and cellular networks in real time, which puts its in a good position to easily transition between the two when there are inconsistencies in either connectivity options.

This business model also gives the carrier the flexibility to continuously offer wireless services with generously discounted rates. For instance, its latest SIM card offering just costs $5, and is easily made available by way of the TextNow’s official website, plus it offers one whole month of wireless service absolutely free of charge.

As explained by Derek Ting, the chief executive officer of TextNow Wireless via an official statement, the carrier has generated some momentum recently, especially in terms of attracting new customers eager to avail of budget friendly mobile plan options. The new SIM card is a logical solution for those who want to sign up under a TextNow plan, but still prefer to use their current smartphone device. 

As far as wireless plans are concerned, TextNow Wireless does offer very friendly rates. Basically, the MVNO offers five voice call plans starting at $14 per month and already come with a hundred megabytes of 3G or 4G data, unlimited 2G data use, and unlimited text messaging and voice calls to the United States and Canada. The carrier’s biggest plan is priced at $60 per month, and offers 6 gigabytes of 3G or 4G data, unlimited 2G data use, and unlimited text messaging and voice calls to the US and Canada.

With regards to continued growth, TextNow Wireless has managed to sign up over 8 million active monthly users to date. Moreover, it claims that its mobile app has already logged over 60 million downloads.

TextNow Wireless Introduces Elastic Calling Tech, Plus New Plans

TextNow Wireless, the Wi-Fi-centric, cloud based mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) has recently taken the opportunity to unveil its new Elastic Calling technology for all of its customers. As an MVNO leasing capacity on Sprint, TextNow Wireless offers a combination of Wi-Fi and cellular mobile service, but its Elastic Calling feature should give its customers a more smooth switching between networks, even in the middle of phone call conversations.

TextNow Wireless’ Elastic Calling tech takes full advantage of enhanced network recognition algorithms. This helps guarantee that calls made or received are connected to the best network available from the start of the phone call until its end. Whenever a connection starts to become faulty, users will be handed over to a better connection, and the phone call never experiences any disruption.

What the Elastic Calling technology does is constantly detect Wi-Fi networks that are available, as well as cellular data and cellular voice networks. The result is a better overall calling experience for TextNow Wireless customers, with lesser instances of dropped calls and improved coverage even apartment blocks or basements.

Apart from rolling out its new Elastic Calling technology, TextNow Wireless also introduced new and improved zero contract plans. There is the brand new Short plan, which comes with unlimited voice calls and text messaging, unlimited 2G data, and a hundred megabytes of speedy cellular data, for a rate of $13.99 a month.

And it gets better -- three of TextNow Wireless’ existing plan options, namely Grande, Venti, and Quattro, will all be upgraded in terms of high speed data, with their respective prices staying the same. These are summarized as follows:

  • Short Plan ($13.99 a month) -- Featuring 100 megabytes of high speed data (new plan)
  • Tall Plan ($18.99 a month) -- Featuring 500 megabytes of high speed data (unchanged)
  • Grande Plan ($26.99 a month) -- Featuring 1.5 gigabytes of high speed data (previously only 1 gigabyte of data)
  • Venti Plan ($39.99 a month) -- Featuring 3 gigabytes of high speed data (previously only 2 gigabytes of data)
  • Quattro Plan ($59.99 a month) -- Featuring 6 gigabytes of high speed data (previously only 4 gigabytes of data)

All of the mobile plans listed above already come with unlimited voice calls and text messaging within the United States and to Canada, plus 2 gigabytes (albeit, throttled) of data. Customers of TextNow Wireless can also enjoy free international voice calls to ten countries (including Mexico and the United Kingdom), with voice calls made to other destinations starting from $0.02 a minute.

          TextNow Wireless Now Selling Samsung’s Galaxy S6 Edge For Just $299.99        
TextNow Wireless Now Selling Samsung’s Galaxy S6 Edge For Just $299.99

TextNow Wireless, a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) that leases network capacity from major US wireless carrier Sprint, has recently revealed that it is now offering the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge handset for only $299.99. Interested buyers can choose between color options of black, white, or gold.

Samsung first introduced the Galaxy S6 Edge smartphone in March of last year during the 2015 Mobile World Congress held in the beautiful city of Barcelona in Spain, along with another flagship device, the Galaxy S6. The device possesses a revolutionary design that features a display screen that curves on both sides of the handset. As far as specifications go, the Galaxy S6 Edge has plenty to offer. It comes with a 5.1 inch Corning Gorilla Glass display screen, flanked by a 16 megapixel camera on the rear side as well as a 5 megapixel camera on the front side. 

When it comes to hardware specs, the Galaxy S6 Edge is no slouch either. It is powered by an eight core Exynos 7420 chip set, supported by 3 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM), and onboard storage options of 32 gigabytes, 64 gigabytes, and 128 gigabytes. With regards to software, the Galaxy S6 Edge comes with Google’s Android 5.0 Lollipop and TouchWiz user interface.

Some may remember that back in December of last year, TextNow Wireless announced that it was offering Samsung’s Galaxy S6 for just $250. By adding the Galaxy S6 Edge, the wireless carrier has further strengthened its current range of Android powered devices, which should be welcome news for its Android using customer base.

Apart from selling the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge smartphone for a tad below three hundred bucks, TextNow Wireless also took the opportunity to formally debut international calling. Before, this service was only made available to Android and iOS mobile users in beta mode. But now, the wireless carrier has rolled out the feature to its subscribers. 

The international calling feature should prove to be handy especially for mobile users with family and friends based in locations outside the United States. They will now be able to get in touch with loved ones from across the globe without having to worry about paying for pricey international rates. On top of all this, TextNow Wireless also offers unlimited domestic calling in the US and  Canada, absolutely free of charge. Other countries covered by free unlimited calls to landline phone numbers include the United Kingdom, Mexico, France, Spain, Sweden, Germany, Portugal, Brazil, Italy, and South Korea.

Text Now Wireless Offers Samsung’s Galaxy S6 For Only $250

And the Samsung holiday deals keep on coming. TextNow Wireless, a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) that uses the network of major US wireless carrier Sprint, has announced that it is selling the Samsung Galaxy S6 smartphone for only $249.99, sans any contract. The Galaxy S6 device is offered in both gold and black color options, with 32 gigabytes of onboard memory. Considering that the normal price for the Galaxy S6 at TextNow Wireless is $599.99 upfront, customers who take advantage of this latest Christmas special offer from the mobile service provider will get to enjoy savings of $350, which is a discount equivalent to almost 60 percent. This offer is made available by TextNow Wireless from until New Year’s Day. It would be a wise decision to act now because the wireless carrier only has a limited number of handsets in stock.

But wait -- there must be a catch somewhere, right? Well, the Samsung Galaxy S6 device being offered in the deal is actually certified refurbished, which means that it is not technically brand new (i.e. straight out of the box). Still, a Galaxy S6 smartphone that has been certified refurbished is essentially a new device, except maybe for its pricing -- you still can expect the same quality performance, the same features and functionalities, a refurbished look, and if there are problems, the device is still covered by a full year’s warranty.

Not all may be fully acquainted with TextNow Wireless. This wireless carrier holds the distinction of being one of a few network service providers that prioritize Wi-Fi connections, with backup from Sprint’s 3G and 4G networks. TextNow Wireless offers smartphone plans starting at prices as low as $18.99 a month, and already come with unlimited voice calls, text messaging, and 2G data on all plans, with LTE data allotments starting from 500 megabytes a month (up to 4 gigabytes on the $59.99 plan). 

Customers who avail of TextNow Wireless plans get their voice call and text messaging service via Wi-Fi connections where there are available. In the absence of any working Wi-Fi network, they can rely on Sprint’s network as the backup. As for those who want to bring in their own handsets to a wireless plan, they can do so with TextNow Wireless as long as their smartphone is compatible with Sprint’s network.

          TextNow Now Offers International Calls To Over 150 Countries        
TextNow Now Offers International Calls To Over 150 Countries

Attention, mobile users who like to make international calls -- here is some additional good news for you. TextNow Wireless, a cloud focused mobile services provider, has just announced that it will be adding new worldwide voice call features, as well as a new way for its customers to earn bill credits. 

For those not familiar with TextNow Wireless, it is actually a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) of Sprint that prioritizes Wi-Fi connections with back up from Sprint’s 3G and 4G networks. This time around, the wireless carrier will be rolling out international calling to over 150 countries around the world over the new few months, including territories such as the United Kingdom, India, and China, just to name a few. Calling rates start as low as $0.04 a minute to Mexico, but those who are looking to make international calls to Canada, they will no doubt be pleased that all calls made to the United States’ northern neighbor are offered absolutely free of charge.

And because TextNow Wireless is committed to making its wireless services as convenient as possible to everyone, customers will now be able to make international calls directly from their own TextNow phone number. And that is not all -- customers will also be granted the ability to check rates in other countries before making an international call. To do this, they only need to enter the phone number they are calling into their handset’s dialer.

Also, it should be noted that international calling features will not be made available to subscribers of TextNow Wireless’ plans only. As a matter of fact, any person who is using TextNow Wireless’ free mobile app will be able to enjoy unlimited free calls to phone numbers in both the US and Canada, both on their smartphone and via their tablet devices and other mobile devices. 

Apart from finally adding international call features, TextNow Wireless is also planning to introduce a new credits system that will reward mobile users who complete offers or watch video content from partners and advertisers. The credits earned by customers can be applied to their wireless service in order to free international and domestic calls, or reduce their monthly smartphone bill. 

As for the offers, what kind exactly? According to FierceWireless, TextNow Wireless’ offers include a credit in the amount of $1.50 for starting a free Hulu trial, plus credits for installing mobile apps from businesses such as Walmart, and for downloading and completing games. The setup is actually reminiscent of Data Perks, the feature launched by AT&T nearly a month ago. AT&T’s Data Perks provides the wireless carrier’s subscribers with bonus monthly data for watching advertisements or answering polls.

          TextNow Wireless Offers The Moto G Smartphone For Only $14.99        
TextNow Wireless Offers The Moto G Smartphone For Only $14.99

TextNow Wireless is offering the revamped Motorola Moto G smartphone for only $14.99, although one may have to add about $9 for shipping. To be clear about it, $14.99 is not the subsidized price of the smartphone in exchange for entering into a two-year agreement. $14.99 is the amount you pay to own the handset right there and then.

It may sound too good to be true, but as always, there are a few caveats. Number one -- the handset being offered is the first-generation Moto G model. Now, there is nothing wrong with this model, and all things considered, the first-gen Moto G is a good choice when you talk about entry-level smartphone offerings. But the fact remains that it is only limited to 3G data and can only offer 8 gigabytes of internal storage (with no support for microSD storage expansion). In other words, this device may not  be to everyone's taste.

And another thing -- the handset is inescapably tied to TextNow Wireless for service, or at least, for traditional smartphone service. Similar to how Republic Wireless operates, TextNow Wireless takes full advantage of Wi-Fi whenever it can. And it is just not using Wi-Fi for text messaging and data, it is also utilizing it for phone calls.

Having said these, TextNow Wireless still presents a good deal with its plans. For instance, its service plans start at just $18.99, and already gives you 750 rollover voice minutes and 500 megabytes of data. That may not be much, but should be serviceable especially for first-time smartphone owners who spend most of their time connected via Wi-Fi. Still, those who want more inclusions can check out the Grande plan, which offers 1,250 minutes and 1 gigabyte of data for just $26.99. Or, you can also opt not to bother getting any service at all and just purchase the Moto G. That is, if you don't mind tethering the phone to any of those free FreedomPop hotspots whenever you want to go online.

As for the Moto G being offered -- limited storage aside, the device is not bad. You get a 4.6-inch display screen, a pair of cameras on each side, and Android 4.4 KitKat, which although not the newest is still the most widely used version of the Android mobile operating system. And you get to enjoy all of this by spending only fifteen bucks.

          [MACchanger] Spoofed MAC address changes back to original permanent MAC before connecting to WiFi        
Written by Pranshu Bajpai |  | LinkedIn


So I needed to spoof my machine's MAC / hardware address as part of a routine penetration test. One problem that I keep facing when using Kali Linux utility, 'macchanger', to do this is that the MAC does successfully spoof but changes back to the original MAC address right before I attempt to connect to a wireless access point. Good thing that years of working in security / hacking has made me paranoid enough to constantly check if the new spoofed MAC address is being used. 'ifconfig' in terminal tells me that it is not. Instead, right before connecting to the wireless access point my machine went back to it's original MAC address on 'wlan0'. Not good.


Solution to retain the spoofed MAC address on wlan0 in Kali Linux:


I've discovered that these 3 commands will help:

ifconfig wlan0 down
ifconfig wlan0 hw ether 00:11:22:33:44:55
ifconfig wlan0 up

Additionally, you may have to turn your WiFi off / on using the graphic panel in the top right. But now, you can connect to the wireless access point and then 'ifconfig wlan0' should reveal that your machine is using the spoofed MAC address: 00:11:22:33:44:55 as shown in image below.



          'Device Not Managed' by NetworkManager - Debian / Ubuntu / Kali Linux | Problem [Solved]        
Written by Pranshu Bajpai |  | LinkedIn

Problem Scenario:

When you install a fresh copy of Kali linux / Debian / Ubuntu, you may be plagued by this error which wouldn't let you connect to the 'Wired' network. The Wireless (wlan0) might work just fine but under 'Wired' Network, it says 'Device not managed'

Solution:

If this interface appears in '/etc/network/interfaces' file, Network Manager won't manage it by default and we need to change this behavior.

To do this, make modifications in the file:
#vi /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf
Change 'managed-false' to 'managed=true'

Now restart the Network Manager
#service network-manager restart
You should see 'Auto Ethernet' appear under the 'Wired' header in the Network Manager now and would be able to connect to it.
          WPA / WPA2 Handshake Cracking WITH Dictionary using Aircrack-ng | How To | Wireless Hacking        
Written by Pranshu Bajpai |  | LinkedIn

If you are planning to hack your nearest WPA/WPA2 network (with No WPS), I have two words for you: Good. Luck.

In all my experiments with penetration testing, I have found dictionary attacks on WPA/WPA2 handshakes to be the most annoying and futile exercises. This is because:
  • going through each word in a dictionary file containing millions of words is time-consuming.
  • success is not guaranteed (the passphrase may not be present in your dictionary).
During my experiments in India, the WiFi passphrases are usually a combination of Hindi and English words or a Hindu name which are, of course, not present in any dictionary that I download no matter how exhaustive it promises to be.

If you are still brave enough to try a dictionary attack on WPA handshake, here's the procedure.

How to launch a Dictionary Attack on WPA Handshake

You might get lucky and your nearest WiFi password may be based on a common dictionary word or number sequence. In such a case, you may succeed with a dictionary attack.

Step 1: Enable monitor mode on wireless interface
#airmon-ng start wlan0
This will start the monitor mode.

Step 2: Take note of the nearest WiFi networks.
#airodump-ng mon0
Step 3: Take note of the channel of your target network, dump packets from that channel and save them to a local capture file.
#airodump-ng -c6 mon0 -w capture_file
Step 4: Wait for WPA handshake capture

At this point, you can use 'aireplay-ng' to de-authenticate an associated legitimate client from the network. The point is that as he/she will authenticate again shortly, we will capture the handshake without having to wait too long:
#aireplay-ng --deauth 0 -a <AP_MAC> -c <CLIENT_MAC> mon0
If you don't know the MAC of any associated client, simply 'broadcast' a 'deauth' to all clients:
#aireplay-ng --deauth 0 -a <AP_MAC> mon0


Step 5: After you grab a WPA handshake comes the hard part of brute forcing using a dictionary. Use 'aircrack-ng' for this:
#aircrack-ng capture_file-01.cap -w /media/Pranshu/...../dic/dark0de.lst



Now say your prayers and hope the passphrase is present in the dictionary you chose.



You can also use online distributed WPA/WPA2 handshake cracking tool on this website:

Note that if the Access Point has WPS Enabled, it becomes easier to recover the WPA / WPA2 passphrase as there are only 11,000 possible combinations needed to brute force the WPS PIN due to an implementation flaw.

          Hacking Neighbour's Wifi (Password) | Hacking Neighbor's Wireless (Internet) | Step by Step How To        
Written by Pranshu Bajpai |  | LinkedIn

Disclaimer: For educational purposes only: This is meant merely to exhibit the dangers of using Poor wireless security. Please note that prior to beginning the test you should seek explicit consent from the owner if the access point does not belong to you.

Hacking into a Neighbor's Wifi access point

OS: Kali Linux
Test Subject: Neighbor's WiFi Access Point
Encryption: WEP

I noticed 4 wireless Access Points in the vicinity. 3 of these were using WPA / WPA2 and I was in no mood for a dictionary attack on WPA handshake, since it takes a long time and success isn't guaranteed. I found one access point using WEP Security and as you know it is an outdated protocol with poor security.

I tested penetrating this WEP access point using the same Aircrack-ng Suite of tools as I have mentioned in this previous post.

Step 1: Discovered the WEP AP having SSID 'dlink'  (Notice the weak signal power from neighbor's house to mine)




Step 2: Collected the required number of Data Packets from the WEP Network. Meanwhile, I used 'aireplay-ng --arpreplay' to increase the data rate since I am not a Patient soul.



Step 3: Saved the data packets in a file called 'neighbor-01.cap' and cracked the password using 'Aircrack-ng'


The Key for the Neighbor's Wifi turned out to be: "1234567890"   -    (An easily guessable Password, just what I expected from someone using WEP Security in 2014)

Step 4: I connected to the wifi using the decrypted key, it allocated an IP to me using DHCP (192.168.0.102)



Note: If you want a better step by step on how to hack a WiFi, check out my previous post here.

5: I was connected to the Internet.

6: Since I was part of their network now, curiosity got the better of me and I decided to scan the network and see who else is connected. I found 3 devices in the network:

One was my Laptop
Another one was my cellphone (I connected my cellphone to the network earlier)
And third was the Dlink router itself (192.168.0.1)
None of the neighbor's own devices were connected to the network at the time.

nmap told me that the dlink router had an open port 80, which reminded me to check out the control panel of this dlink device.

Step 7: So I fired up my browser and went to '192.168.0.1:80' which opened the login panel for dlink access point control panel



Step 8:  Quick google search revealed that defaults for login on dlink devices are:
username: 'admin' and password:blank
Step 9: A tried logging in with defaults and got access to the control panel.




(Again BAD security practice: leaving defaults unchanged!)




Step 10: I was getting weak power from the AP and decided to upgrade their firmware and see if it made a difference.

The Current firmware of the neighbor's wifi was '5.10'

I checked for latest Firmware available. It was '5.13'



I downloaded the upgrade on my machine ("DIR********.bin")

Step 11: I made a backup of the configuration of the Access point before upgrading. I saved backup 'config.bin' to my laptop from the neighbor's wifi

Step 12: I went ahead and upgraded the Firmware. I uploaded the DIR****.bin from my laptop to the access point and it went for a reboot.



I lost access to the WiFi after the upgrade.

I figured the new upgraded firmware changed the Password for the WiFi now and I couldn't connect to it anymore. Moreover, since I lost access to the Internet now along with the WiFi, I couldn't Google the default password for the upgraded firmware anymore.

And I couldn't crack it either because this time no one--not even the neighbor himself--would be able to authenticate to the WiFi with the new unknown password after the firmware upgrade and hence no data packets would be generated and I will have nothing to crack.

Step: I fired up 'Airodump-ng' again and noticed that the firmware upgrade simply changed the access point security to "open", ie, no password is required to connect to it.

Step: I connected to the "Open" wifi and restored the Configuration settings using the 'config.bin' backup I made earlier.

I manually selected WPA2 security and provided the same password as used earlier by my neighbor ("1234567890")

Disclaimer: Please note that I had explicit consent from the owner before commencing this test. If you do not have such permission, please try it on your own access point. Failing to do so will result in illicit activities.



          Custom Xbox 360 Controller        


Here we will walk you through the installation of any of the custom Xbox 360 controller parts. I would recommend that you take a look through the video to get a good idea on how to install the appropriate parts and also pick up on a couple tips that may make it easier and quicker as well. Here is the part breakdown list:

Here are the parts that are available for the controllers. All of the below parts will work with wireless controllers and everything will work with wired ones except a full wireless shell and the bumpers likely won't.

Necessary Parts

T8 Security Torx
Assorted Colored Parts
Thumbsticks
Top/Bottom Shells
Triggers
D-pads
AXBY Buttons
Bumper Assemblies
Bottom Trim Piece
Battery Packs


          Xbox 360 Ring of Light Controller Mod / LED Swap        
What you will need:
 
Removal of the SMDs/Lights
 
We are going to use a method that we like to call 'floating' the SMD off. This involves putting a decent amount of solder on the tip of your iron and then dragging it across the edge of the SMD where the two solder points are. You want to melt both connections connections at the same time otherwise the SMD will not 'float off'. Do not apply excessive pressure to the SMD with the iron (a tiny bit is acceptable, but not a lot) otherwise you risk tearing up a pad. Sometimes adding a little bit of solder to each end of the SMD before trying to 'float' it off will help considerably. Once you remove all four lights then make sure the soldering pads are clear of excessive solder (you don't want mounds solder on the pad or you will have trouble soldering the leds flat).

Xbox 360 Controller Polarity  

Xbox 360 Wireless Controller Positive Negative  

Xbox 360 Wireless Controller Positive Negative



 
Installation of New Lights/SMDs
 
After all of the original Lights are removed you must then put on the new ones. Get out your SMDs that you have purchased and remove only one of them at a time, otherwise you will most likely lose one. When you have one removed pick it up with the tweezers and look to see which side is positive. Now that you know the orientation of the SMD, position it accordingly for installation with it laying flat (lens facing directly up). We are going to solder the positive side first so add a little solder to the + pad that you are going to solder to first. Grab the negative side of the SMD with tweezers and hold the positive side of the SMD just in above the appropriate pad. Once you have it in the position you want, hold it tightly and melt the solder that you just added to the pad and put the SMD into the solder  so it sticks to the SMD. Remove the soldering iron and let the solder cool down and harden then remove the tweezers. It is important to remeber that you should not apply heat to the board or the SMDs very long or you could cause damage. You should only apply heat for a couple of seconds at a time at the most. Repeat this process for all of the corners and you are done!! Test and Enjoy!

If you have a CG controller (please check our guide in the tutorials section) then blue and UV will be dim (or hardly show up) on a wireless controller and other colors may also be slightly dimmer than maximum capacity. This is due to the lack of voltage at these points in the controller and has nothing to do with the leds.

          Xbox 360 Wired and Wireless Controller AXBY SMD LED Light Mod        

The first thing you need to do is take apart your controller so you
have just the board. Please check the link below to do this if you do
not already know how:

Disassemble Controller

Once this is done you will need the following items:

4 x 0603 SMDs
Wire
Solder
Soldering Iron
Hot Glue Gun
Resistors (make sure you have the correct values)

Once you have all the materials and the controller apart then it is time to begin.

Step one - Wiring the SMDs - Repeat this step 4 times, once for each button

The only tricky part about this mod is solder the two wires to the smd, but if you can do that you are good to go. I will help explain the best way to do it. First put a little bit of solder on your soldering iron and then pick up the smd and look at the bottom of it (where the pads are you solder to). Touch each side with the soldering iron (has a little solder on it) so that you can put a tiny bit of solder on each side of the led. Once this has been done then you will need to get your wire (preferably 30 awg). When you have your wire out, strip a very small amount of the insulation off of one end. 'Tin' the end you stripped with solder (put a little solder on the wire). Do this same thing to the other wire. Now get your SMD back in the tweezers and look at the pads you have 'Tinned' already. You will need to touch the wire on the out side of the SMD and just heat the smd and the wire and there should be enough solder there to melt them together and make a good connection. It may not look pretty, but it will get the job done!!! Do this for both wires. It should look something like this.

Photobucket

Step Two - Put the SMDs into the AXBY buttons of the Xbox 360 Controller

Now that you have it wired up you need to put the smd into the button. You can fit it into the button like this. Instead of placing the wires coming out of the buttons like shown you will need to cut out a little slot (different than the one shown) for the wires to go through. Once this is done you will not even be able to tell there is a light in there when you press the button! Again please read what was stated just above and do not do what the picture shows, but cut a different (new) slot. This can be done with a dremel or wire cutters. You may also use a dab of glue just to hold the smd in place inside the buttons. Just use a small amount and don't let it get above the four posts show or the button will not press right.

Photobucket

Step Three - Power LEDs

Here is where you should power the leds - Make sure you choose the right resistors so you don't burn your leds out for your specific setup.

Now carefully put it all together, making sure the wires are out of the way and test it! You will get something like this if it's done correctly!

          Hidden Wi-Fi Network on the Roku 2        
If you have a Roku 2 media streamer and use a wireless network scanning tool such as Acrylic Wi-Fi Home, you might see a hidden wi-fi network on exactly the same wireless channel as your router. Depending on the location of your PC, the signal for this hidden network might be stronger than your wireless router. Changing the channel on your router doesn't help, as the hidden network "follows" and switches to the same channel again.

This is due to a feature in the Roku called "Wi-Fi" direct. This allows for wireless devices (such as phones and other wi-fi remote controls) to connect to the Roku. As the Roku 2 comes with an infra-red remote control, this additional Wi-Fi network isn't really needed (as long as you're not planning to control it via wi-fi).

Connecting the Roku 2 to the internet via a wired connection means that the hidden Roku wireless network can be on a different channel, but to reduce interference I've  disabled Wi-Fi Direct on my Roku 2 by following these steps: -

  •     Home
  •     Settings
  •     System
  •     Advanced system settings
  •     Device connect
  •     Disable Device connect


Once you've done this, you should see the additional wireless network disappear.

          Accessing ADSL Line Stats from o2 Wireless Box III        
I can't find any easy way to access ADSL line stats through the o2-supplied "Wireless Box III" (a Thomson TG585n).

The only way that I could access them is by using this link.

Once you've got them, you can copy them into a stats checker such as this one.

This should all work with the standard "Administrator" user (no password), other functionality is available with the SuperUser user - password default is "O2Br0ad64nd".

          User Review: WARNING: DO NOT BUY THIS CELL PHONE!!!        

scapaflow36 submitted this review of the Samsung SGH-E315:

Overall rating: 1 (out of 5)

One year ago I needed to purchase a cell phone and service plan. I researched several different carriers by asking peoples' opinions and reading articles (i.e. Consumer Reports, on-line articles, etc.). Overall T-Moblie was rated second or third for quality of service in my area (NW Columbus, Ohio), behind Verizon Wireless and/or Sprint. I chose T-Mobile based upon price of plan verses number of minutes (1000 anytime, unlimited night and weekend for $45.99). The sales representative suggested the Samsung SGH e315. I unfortunately went with her recommendation.
PROS:
-small in size
-user friendly
-can personalize phone in several ways
-many features: camera/camcorder, calculator, calender, alarm, good color screen, supports JAVA, Internet capable, AIM, external picture caller I.D.
-phone is dual band (1900, 900 MHz) and can be used in Europe as well as the United States

CONS:
-terrible reception
-many dropped calls and "cut outs" even with full bars
-poor sound quality
-battery life is fine, but if it is not fully charged the reception and sound quality decrease, and the dropped calls increase
-sometimes it has to be turned off and turned back on again to get better reception (this is what t-mobile tech support told me)
-camera/camcorder produces poor quality shots and movies, and the quality of sound of the voice recorder is a joke
-ringers are terrible (no normal ring. most normal is the t-mobile sound bite)
-can not vibrate and ring at same time, or silence incoming calls while keeping the phone on (choices are vibrate, vibrate then ring, ring, or off)
-ringers and vibrate are weak
-can not assign ringers to people
-no speaker phone
-no way to disable the external camera side key or the noise it makes (even if phone is on silent), resulting in phone taking many pictures in one's pocket
-no voice activated dialing
-low memory

IN CONC: T-Mobile and Samsung may score with other people, but they sure dropped the ball in my court.

          AT&T Promises LTE Coverage For 300 Million Americans By The End Of 2014 After $8bn Investment        

attlteSure, Verizon's running those ads that tells you how obvious it is their network is best, but AT&T wants you to know it's not sleeping on the job. Today, the carrier announced that it plans to have LTE coverage for 300 million people by the end of 2014. For those counting, that leaves only about 10 million out in the entire country.

The plan comes as part of a $14bn investment into wireless and wireline services—$8bn of which is going to wireless—that is expected to be carried out over the next three years.

          IPhone 7 vs Galaxy S7        
I had a friend recently ask on Facebook if anyone  had an recommendation between the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Apple IPhone 7/7 Plus.  I spend a lot of time reviewing and testing phones so I thought I would write down some of what I have learned.  They are both great phones and this article is not meant to push one over the other but rather to show that it depends on what you are looking for in a phone.  With that said here are the pros and cons of each.

Advantages of IPhone 7/7 Plus


  • Battery Life.  IPhone simply has more dependable battery life.  By dependable I am basically referring to stand by time (that time when your screen is off).  It's very easy to use your S7 for a few weeks and then, one day, you turn off the screen with your battery at 70% and wake it up two hours later with your battery at 55%.  This is not really the phones fault; it's the fault of the OS.  The S7 has good battery life but the way the Android OS is structured means that apps you install can leave  behind services that run all the time.  Recent updates to Android have tried to address this and Google itself has said they realize this is a significant problem and are trying to fix it.
  • Battery Usage Reporting.  To go along with battery life the reporting of what is eating your battery is 1000% better on IPhone.  Both systems have an area that lists apps that have used your battery along with a usage graph.  However on Android the data never seems complete and much of the usage is hidden behind cryptic process names like "Android System".  I've been in technology for 30 years and very often can't figure out the Android battery usage meter.  With IPhone it's very simple and will actually tell you how long each app was on screen.  Truly useful.
  • Apps are better.  Yes the Google Play Store has tons of apps but the apps in the Apple App Store are normally much better.  There are certain apps that simply don't work on IPhone (like lock screens or replacement text messaging apps)  but apps like Facebook, Twitter, etc are typically better on IOS.
  • Voice interactions.  This is a big one for me as I really enjoy interacting with my phone using my voice especially with my headphones.  There are many use cases.  You are at a soccer game listening to music and you want to text a friend or you want to find out if that local diner is still open.  Ok Google can be made to work on the Galaxy S7 but out of the box it uses a voice assistant called S-Voice.  S -Voice is terrible compared to Siri or Ok Google.  As I said you can get Ok Google to work on the Galaxy S7 and that mitigates this a bit but I've found Siri to be a bit better in this regard.
  • Always On Voice Wakeup.  This one is a no brainer.  With this feature your phone is always listening for a special phrase to wake it up and give it commands.  With the Galaxy S7 you can customize the wake up phrase so you can use something like 'Hey Jarvis' if you wanted to whereas with the IPhone you have to use the phrase 'Hey Siri'.  The problem is that the S7 only supports voice wake with S-Voice and, as I said before, S-Voice is terrible.  You don't want to use that.  This makes voice wake on the S7 a non starter.
  • Messaging - Both platforms have tons of messaging apps (Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, etc, etc).  What really sets the IPhone apart here is iMessage.  Apple has added iMessage apps and they are crazy.  Not only can you send animated gifs but there are over 1000 apps that you can play with your other IPhone friends right inside iMessage.  You can send move times, sports scores, even create your own JibJab gif with your own face.  Very fun.
  • Security and updates - Apple's IOS is known to be a bit more secure than Android with more frequent updates.  I've already received 3 updates to iOS 10 just in the last 4-6 weeks.  With the Galaxy S7 you will not get updates that often and it may take months to get on the latest OS (Nougat).
  • Faster - Whether it's looking at Antutu scores, GFXBench scores, or SunSpider scores the IPhone are simply faster, sometimes by a lot.  

Advantages of the Galaxy S7

  • Camera - The S7 does have a better camera, slightly.  DxoMark scores the S7 camera at an 88 and IPhone 7 at 86.  What this means is they are both great but the average user will love them both.
  • Always On Display - This is like the old Nokia Glance screen.  You can set things like calendar and notifications to show on the screen even when the screen is off.  This is a useful feature and allows you to see if you have missed a call or text just by glancing at your screen with no need to actually turn the screen on.  This feature doesn't work with every app; in fact it really only works with Samsung apps but it is useful.
  • Gear VR - The Galaxy S7 has a high enough display that it works well with the Gear VR headset.  This means that you can  use the headset to play games in VR space.  This is fun and compelling.
  • Flexibility of Android - Android is more flexible allowing some things that IOS simply doesn't allow.  One example is changing out lock screens or having apps that automatically change your wallpaper on a schedule.  Another example is having a launcher that includes an app drawer.  This makes it much easier to organize your app icons.
  • Widgets -- This is a feature of Android and not specifically the S7.  Widgets are cool though I don't typically use them.  This are basically small mini apps that sit on your 'desktop' .
  • Wireless charging - The S7 supports wireless charging.  This does help to declutter your nightstand.

Things That Are Basically The Same Between The Two

  • Waterproof - While the S7 is touted as being IP68 certified and IPhone 7 is only IP67 certified, tests have shown that the IPhone 7 actually survives in deeper water than the S7. I wouldn't want to test this personally but this appears to be a push.
  • Headphone jack - Yes Apple removed the headphone jack on the IPhone 7.  They include a set of headphones in the box that work with the phone and an adapter that allows it to work with any headphones but quite a few folks are still a bit dismayed at this choice.  It doesn't bother me because moving from analog to digital headphones should bring better quality aidio and more features and we are already seeing IPhone 7 compatible headphones come on the market.  This may seem like a negative against the IPhone 7 but I consider it a wash at the moment.  
  • Third party keyboards - Both platforms support 3rd party keyboards but Android has many more choices.  The other thing to be aware of is that at the time of this writing third party keyboards on iOS are not allowed to present the voice dictation button.   I really dislike this as voice dictation is something I use from time to time.  
  • Chromecasting - We love casting videos and movies to our Nexus Players or Chromecast devices and that works from either device.
I've left out many things like mail apps, etc that basically come down to personal preference.  As I said at the start of this article they are both great devices but if I was pressed to pick a device for my mom it would be an IPhone.  The experience is just more dependable and in most cases better.


          Why you should consider a Windows Phone for your next phone - part 1        
Back in November of 2012 I gave out a warning that I didn't think that Windows Phone would survive.  I'm still not certain it will but I am more optimistic today than ever before.  I've been carrying a Lumia 920 as my daily driver for most of the last two months and really have no strong desire to go back to my Galaxy S3.  So I decided I should write a lengthy article on what is keeping me on the Lumia as it might be helpful to others.  First let me say that you really can't go wrong with any of the current flagship devices, the IPhone 5, Galaxy S3/S4, or Lumia 920/1020 so this post is not at all about decided which one is better. I would say that each one of them is better for different types of people.  I'm only writing about what I like about the Lumia 920.

Build Quality And Size


The Lumia devices are extremely well built.  They don't have removable back plates and, like the IPhone, feel solid through and through.  The color is baked into the phone so dropping it and even taking a gouge out of the body will not leave you with a scratch that is discolored.

The height and width of the 920 are fine but the device really is thicker and heavier than is necessary.  This is due in large part to the built-in wireless charging.  While I prefer the thinness and weight of my Galaxy S3, I don't find it a deal breaker on the Lumia. It spends most of it's time in my pocket and I don't spend hours at a time holding the device to my ear.

Phone Dialer and Integration



Two things that I really like about the phone dialer is the tight integration of visual voice mail and the ability to see phone numbers I have looked up by business name rather than number.  First, visual voice mail is simply a swipe away.  Just tap the phone icon and swipe over the voice mail section.  Some Android phones may have something similar but I didn't really see it on my Galaxy S3 (which still does visual voice mail but it's a separate app from the carrier).

The second thing I really like is how Windows Phone saves the name of a location I looked up to call in the call log.  On most phones when you use maps to look up a business to call, the entry that appears in the call log is just the number.  Later you will look at that number and not remember who you called.  With Windows Phone you will see the actual business name in the cal log making it very clear.  One other small thing I like about the call log is how I can call back the number which just a simple touch of the phone icon next to the entry. I know with the Galaxy S3/S4 you can swipe one direction to call and the other to text but there is something I prefer about a simple touch over a swipe motion.

One thing that Windows Phone is missing is a T-9 dialer.  It can be nice to just pull up a dial pad and start dialing the name of the person you want to call.  You can do this with Android but it's missing on WP8.


Maps


While Google Maps is an excellent product, there are two features about Nokia Maps on Windows Phone devices that I really want to highlight.

The first is offline maps.  In this connected world it's easy to think that offline maps are not important.  However just a few weeks ago my wife was taking my daughter on a college visit.  She was driving on local surface streets and discovered she had not cell coverage in that area.  Her "blue ball" had kept moving but her maps would not update.  She was lost.  She had to stop and ask directions.  Yes I am aware that Google maps has (had?) some type of offline map caching but it's not like Nokia maps where you can pre-download entire states and countries of mapping data that is always available to you even when you are offline. This even includes local business names.  It's really impressive to show your friends that you can turn off all WiFi and cell service to your phone and *still* look up the directions to a local restaurant and navigate without any issue.

The second one is really small but shows the completeness of the maps.  I've heard Google make noise about "inside maps" so I did the following quick test.  On both my phones I zoomed in on my local mall, Rivergate.  On my Galaxy S3 I could see the outline of the entire mall and the names of the 3-4 major retailers on the corners of the mall.  On the Lumia I could see all that *plus* every single shop on the inside of the mall too.  The complete directory with every shop correctly sized and placed.  Very cool to also show your friends that you have the mall directory in your pocket.  You start getting questions like "what kind of phone is that again?"

 Music


Music is one area where I think Windows Phone 8 really shines right now.  There are plenty of apps for playing your music.  The Pandora app (now that it is finally here) is probably the best implementation of Pandora I have ever seen.  I also have Spotify and  iHeartRadio installed.  I am using an app called CloudMuzik to access my Google music cloud.  And while I'm not a subscriber, Xbox Music is baked in and is an excellent alternative to Spotify.  I have also heard that Amazon is bringing an Amazon Music Cloud player to WP8 very soon.  The point is that unless you depend on Amazon Cloud player for your music you will really not have any trouble rocking your tunes.  That being said, I want to call out two things that really make it shine for me.

The first is an app, Nokia Music.  I have been a Pandora user for a long time and I really love the service.  However I find myself using Nokia music more and more.  The main reason is there are no commercials!  And speaking of commercials it is important to point out Pandora is ad-free on WP8 until 2014.  While Nokia doesn't allow you fine-tune by removing songs you don't like, they do provide lots of pre-built mixes and allows you to create your own from a set of artists.  You can also take these mixes offline *all for free*.  This offline capability is really nice as I recently found out on my trip to Tech Ed.  I was about to board one of my flights and wanted to keep listening.  So I just tapped the mix I was listening to and told it to take it offline. Within just a few minutes I had 3 mixes offline that gave me between 1-2 hours of non-repetitive listening while on the plan.  Very nice!  Yes, I know that Spotify can do this too but Nokia Music does it for free!!

The other thing to call out about Nokia Music is their Music+ offering.  For $3.99 per month you can skip as many tracks as you like in your mixes and you can get lyrics to all the songs.  While this is not as good as the on demand ability you get with Spotify, it is also less then half the price.  Nokia Music, Pandora, and Spotify make my Lumia a musical powerhouse.

The second thing I want to mention about music is the controls.  No matter what app is playing background music you can get access to controls to play, pause, and (if supported) next and previous tracks just by pressing either of the volume controls and the controls slide down from the top.  Yes, I realize that on Android the controls are generally available on the lock screen and in the pull down shade.  However, anyone who has used Android has discovered that lock screen music controls are not a given.  Pandora didn't have lock screen controls for some time on my GS3.  In any case, I think the music situation on WP8 is very nice and easily able to satisfy all comers.

That's it for part 1.  In the next installment we'll look at a few more features that make Windows Phone an excellent choice for your next phone!

          How to Use Spy Hidden Button Camera in Sting Operations        
In a developing country like India, the media industry has to stand up for the society because like every developing nation it also has some national threats like poverty, illiteracy and corruption. India’s population is increasing at a rapid rate and a large amount of it is still illiterate so, in order to make these people aware of their rights and fight for them, the media has a massive role to play. Politicians are taking advantage of their illiteracy and are making black money by using the power of their position. But it is not so easy to unmask them because they are very powerful people and the only way to bring them under the scanner is to revolt against them or to do secret sting operations on them.

So, the media industry has to work for the people and work on such operations in order to save the country from going into the wrong hands and though they are dangerous but with the help of the ever developing science and technology, there are inventions of various spy cameras and gadgets which makes the jobs of the journalists and reporters much easier.

          Features of Wireless Baby Monitoring Camera        

Society is something which does not remain static and when we talk about the Indian society it has shown some drastic changes since the last decade or so. A few decades ago, Indians lived in big joint families comprising of 15-20 members and as a result there was no fear of security as nobody remain alone at home or so as there were grandparents, cousins, uncles, aunties, nephews etc. But as I said our society is changing and the good olden times are not here anymore except some remote rural areas.

Now, the joint families have changed into nuclear families and the rural times have changed in to towns and metropolitan cities. Everyone is busy in the race of life where work has made them solitary as only a few hours what they get to spend time with family and friend. In a family, there are two working partners and if they have a baby they have to leave it alone or with nanny but that’s not sufficient because you cannot trust a stranger to take good care of your baby. So, there is an urgent need of Wireless Baby Monitor Cameras In Indiaso, that you can monitor your baby and even the nanny. It is also required even if there are grandparents because elder people have slow reflexes and cannot respond to a baby quickly.

When you buy this device you should be careful about the audio quality it provides because a baby mainly tries to convey its message by crying and shouting and it fails to give the clear audio then there will be a problem from you as you will not be able to understand and respond. Again, there is obviously the video quality which has to be crystal clear because babies often wakes up from sleep and again fall asleep. So, if you see it that the baby is fine then you can take your own time to do what were you doing. And, the third thing you should see if it has motion sensors because babies often move a lot and they have the danger of falling from the bed and this device can alarm you through the movement of the baby. The Wireless Baby Monitor Cameras In Delhi are available in many markets and online shops because it is on very high demand and in a city like Delhi it will be very important to install these devices because there are mainly working parents and another reason is that the crime rates have increased significantly and this device will help you protect your baby and your home from any kind of crimes.

So, these cameras are mean to monitor your baby but along with it, it also serves you as your surveillance camera of your entire home. Just install this be carefree about your baby and your home as it will be safe and secure under its surveillance.

          Best Hidden Cameras used in Sting Operations        

Science and technology have progressed a lot after the new inventions and discoveries. It has become a boon for the human race as science and technology as it has made our lives easier, simpler and faster. In the recent yeas the media industry is making huge developments be it in news presentation or the source of news, everything looks better every day. The news has become crispier, shorter and interesting and in many cases it also provides much fun and entertainment and the experts have also coined a new term for it and it is known as ‘infotainment’.

With this sudden boom in media world, a lot of news channels came up in India and there are numerous national and local news channels now. Apart from the competition of the news channels there is also a cut throat competition among the journalists and reporters where they always try to outdo one another. One main weapon used by reporters nowadays is the sting which gives them name and fame with high TRPs of their show. So, they try to do sting operations, but this is not an easy task because if they are caught then it will be a matter of life and death for them. Thus, they use different spy cameras and gadgets to perform these sting operations.

Spy Button Camera: - The best thing to do a sting operation is the button camera because it is too small to be detected by the human eye and it is installed in black shirts then it becomes completely invisible. Button cameras are the most popular device for doing sting and most reputed journalists refer this device to carry out sting operations.

3. Spy Keychain Camera: - Again, there is a keychain camera which is recently launched and can be a great asset to do sting operations because nobody can even imagine that there is a hidden camera in a keychain. So, you can easily walk in and place your keychain on the table and take interviews without raising any eyebrows.

Smart shoes: MediaTek Labs help track your kids


Answering the eternal question - where is my kid?

MediaTek LinkIt developer board has enabled the creation of a rather interesting product, wearable connected shoes. 

This is an extension of a wearable tracker that we mentioned before, which comes in a unique form factor. The wearable shoes come in children sizes, as you would want to track them, especially when they are young and restless.  

The board is inside the shoes based on the MT2502 Aster platform.  The platform offers comprehensive communication and media features, including support for GSM, GPRS, Bluetooth 2.1 and 4.0, SD Cards, and MP3/AAC Audio, as well as WiFi and GNSS.

The shoe manufacturer from China called 361 (no realtion to helmet maker Six Six One) has enabled the GPS and WiFi and it can beam the information to your phone. The app enables you to set the geo boundaries, so you can limit the area where you kid is allowed to move. We are not sure whether it includes a "you're grounded mister" mode.

The MediaTek Asterk MT2502 comes with a 4MB of RAM, which is just enough for this particular application, and the shoes come with a 520mAh battery. The small developer board is in the heal of the right shoe and it is charged wirelessly.

The 520mAh battery should let the platform run for one to two days and once the kid gets home, you would just place the shoes on the charging pad and recharge them for the future use.

This is a perfect example of synergy of the low power platform and the real world used case. Some people might get concerned the application and cloud services might be hacked, and someone might be able to track you kids. We are sure that MediaTek's software enginners are working hard to prevent any hacking.

The shoes are already selling for about 500 yuan in China, which translates to $80.50 USD or €72.90 EUR.

          Skinny Wireless Broadband and Moving        
Just a question about moving the modem.

I gather it can only be used at one address, and if you move you have to notify them of the address change which may or may not allow you back on the network depending on local conditions.

But what happens if you want to move regularly between two locations, and those locations share the same cell site? Is it really necessary for technical reasons to notify of an address change then?

          Skinny 4G Fixed Wireless speed/stability issues        
Long story short, I'm helping a friend who is having a bit of trouble with Skinny's fixed 4G Broadband.I actually created a whole pdf file with all the info, then realized I can't upload that here, then I'd have to link to it, and no one would probably be bothered to read it, so I've basically copied and pasted it here.

Skinny 4G speed issues

Control test - VDSL connection - line speeds 54.8/11.1

Ubuntu Zesty Zapus (very zesty) downloaded from UC - graph includes speed test result

Speedtest on Skinny 4G - this is being tested literally next door (about 150m away) to where the modem is normally used, we probably have a little less signal here. RSRQ: -7dB

RSRP: -105dBm

RSSI: -79dBm

SINR: 12dB

Ubuntu Zesty Zapus (not quite as zesty as before) downloaded from UC - graph includes speed test result

This above graph isn't quite typical, but still a bit odd. You can see the Ubuntu download start, and then die right off. I re-ran the speedtest while the download was still in progress (see the yellow in the middle, the green to the left of the yellow is the speedtest download), and saw around 15Mbps again, but the download was still very slow - just as the speedtest upload was about to finish, the Ubuntu download sped up again. You can see it dropped off and sped up again once after that, but it was slow for a shorter amount of time. That's not typical of the issues the user is seeing - generally a download (say a Steam or Origin update) would slow down, and stay slow until it was paused for a minute or so, and on resuming the download it would start off quick again, then gradually slow down. The user didn't think they were seeing the speed change quite as aggressively as we are here.

This graph above is a Nvidia driver download - as you can see the download speed has dropped right down part way through, then sped up again. Not really the same as the user is seeing, and I don't think that kind of drop is anything too unusual for a 4G connection?

This is a much better example - this is back where the modem normally lives - this from the user: The blue circle is a steam download I started. You can see the download declined pretty much straight away. Within 30 seconds of the download starting.

The orange circle is the same download being resumed after I paused it briefly. Again it dropped pretty quickly.

The green circle is a uTorrent download. It wasn't capped at all for the entirety of the download.

So I guess the question is this. Spark and Skinny both confirm there is no traffic shaping on their network, so how can we explain this behaviour? One very odd thing was the speedtest that was run during the Ubuntu download - the Ubuntu download had slowed to around 100 - 150kbps, but we still saw 15Mbps download on a speedtest while the Ubuntu download was in progress, so I guess this confirms that the connection itself is still solid. Really interested to hear any thoughts on this. Not accusing Spark or Skinny of anything at all - this just seems like unexpected behaviour and we'd love to see what other's thoughts are, or if anyone could recommend some better methods of testing, or could compare some of your own results? Perhaps our expectations are unrealistic. Thanks heaps!

          Skinny Modem + Rabbit Ear Aerials        
I'm looking at getting the Skinny 100GB deal since I'm looking at cutting down on some expenses. Anyway, in regards to the skinny wireless broadband modem (the Huawei B315s), does it come with the aerials as seen in the photo below? is it possible to obtain them if they don't come in the box? does Spark themselves sell them?


          Skinny Wireless BB at unauthorised location?        
Hey Geekzone,I'm within range of a Spark 4G tower (just) and own a few large 4G antennas however Skinny's portal and customer support email won't sell me their product... Other addresses further away from this tower are accepted in their website and can be ordered for.

Does anyone offer 4G through Spark's towers that are more reasonable? (no other reception here)

Anyone got experience with just lying to Skinny, which seems like the best option currently (I can provide an address which would be locked to the same tower)?

Any other bright ideas, ADSL just doesn't cut it...

          Skinny Mobile Broadband - Clarks Beach        
I have been using the Skinny Wireless Home Broadband service for some six months now with generally good speed results (at least 10mbps+ download) however more recently in the last two weeks speeds have been as low as 1 - 2 Mbps download. Upload speeds are generally not too bad.

I suspect it is a result of overloading on the local cell site. Would anyone from Skinny be able to confirm if this is the case? Is there a way to lock the modem to another cell site which isn't as overloaded? Or any plans to upgrade capacity in the area?

Many thanks

          Skinny 40GB Wireless Broadband only 1 month at a time?        
Hi Guys,

Is anyone here using (or know if its possible to use) Skinny wireless 40GB broadband on a month by month basis, where you might use it one month, and then not use for a few months. (perhaps only topping up for a specific month).

Looking to see if this is an option for a bach, e.g. use the 40GB wireless plan for 2 months over December/January, plus another month of Easter (April), maybe another month in October, etc. Not needed full time 12 months of the year.

As during these times at the bach (when I like to work remotely while family is holidaying), 40GB for $40 is a lot better than buying multiple $46 skinny combos with only 2.5GB data.

Thanks

          Skinny Wireless Broadband & TAC locking        
Noting nzpilot1181's recent thread (+it's highjack), with reference to @coffeebaron 's post about the SIM being TAC locked to Skinny's Huawei modem, is it possible to have a SIM swap conducted by Skinny so that the connection can be used on a different 4G modem instead of the B315s?

I'm aware Vodafone can (and will, upon request) do this, curious if it's possible with Skinny also.


          New Skinny unlimited plan and Outlook not receivnig e-mails        
I have changed over from my Skinny Wireless to Skinny wires, which is super fast and awesome! but on my Laptop Outlook can send e-mails but not receive them.

I get the disconnected exclamation at the bottom of the screen, is this something Skinny has to fix, a router issue to fix (not allowing the right port to flow traffic?)

I can connect fine with my Skinny Wireless modem, but this will stop working around 12th April so I need to figure out what is going on before then.

Anyone else seen this issue?

BTW loving the 56mb/s down and 10mb/s up and low latency.

          Skinny Home Wireless Broadband doomed?        
I have had Skinny Wireless for 6 months now in North Shore. The data rate used to be good, now whenever I do a download, the speed starts at ~60Mbits/sec and drops down to around 6Mbits/sec after a couple of second. This has been a reliable observation for the past 2 weeks (monitored by watching the Ethernet graph in Win10 task manager). I have tried updating Photoshop in morning,afternoon, and at 4AM this morning with the same result. Other downloads and even watching online streaming I notice the same down to the extent that the online video (Youtube) pauses often.

I also have my ADSL line for backup, and now after 2 days of trying to update Adobe Photoshop, I have changed back to the ADSL modem and get a rock steady 11Mbits/sec (~my usual ADSL limit) so it doesn't seem to be Adobe end holding things up.

Could it be that Spark (owners of the network) are now rate-limiting because they have been offering wireless to everyone and dont have the capacity to deliver?

          Skinny Mobile slow after 2Degrees..        
I have installed 2x Skinny Wireless Broadband 4G Units (Huawei) on their $52/month 100gb Contract Free Plan. (1 in Auckland and 1 in Bay of Islands). So far they are great, no problems apart from very occasional drop out on each that was fixed by simple reboot.

So, seeing as it is the same as their Mobile Phone Broadband network, I decided to switch my phone from 2degrees to Skinny ($30/mth, 3gb, unlimited calls & texts)

I have found it slow, with seemingly lots of latency. I haven't done any speed tests yet, but seeing as I just swapped from 2degrees, which always seemed to work great & without issue, it's starkly noticeable...

Google Now thinks for ages when I make a voice query and web pages seem to hang for long periods while loading...

It's confusing, as I've found the Huawei home modem works great and it should be the same network.

My mobile (Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 - 64gbrom+3gbram) is usually quick & responsive, so I don't think it's that.

The only other possibility I can think of is that somehow my phone system settings aren't optimised for Skinny, as I only changed over today (now regretting it a bit..)

Any ideas??

          Skinny Unlimited Broadband (fixed line), is this new?        
Looking at Skinny website this morning and noticed they have unlimited (fixed line) broadband available for $68 per month with no contract.

Is this new to Skinny or did I miss it when I looked on their website last week?

I signed up for the Skinny Wireless Broadband service, but I also have an Unlimited ADSL connection with BigPipe for $79 P/M which I intended on keeping, would happily switch to Skinny for that also (assuming their system allows me to have two broadband services).

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

D-Link to Launch New Value in Partnership Program and Channel Partner Portal

USA (June 2010) – D-Link seizes the opportunity to compete more aggressively utilizing efficient channel partners and providing partner portal to streamline their new VIP or Value in Partnership partner program. The aims of the program are to help resellers respond faster to customer needs and recognize the partner's efforts in introducing and promoting D-Link products and solutions to customers and other businesses. Having access to marketing materials like product demos, joint sales and financing are just some of the benefits for members of the program.

D-Link is a well known global company who provides networking solutions by designing, manufacturing and marketing products geared towards effective connectivity. Their core strength lies in providing Ethernet networking peripherals and application to SMEs or Small to Medium Enterprises all over the globe.

The company recognizes the contributions of effective delivery channels in their successful global presence in over a hundred countries. In 2005, in fact, they reached a milestone earning $1 billion in revenue due to competitive sales strategies.

Michael Fox, D-Link's Vice president for US channel, shares their mission of embracing every channel partner's unique approach and value-added competencies and rewards their efforts especially the dedicated resellers who focus on their core products and solutions in networking which are security, storage, switching, wireless and IP surveillance. Fox added that they surveyed the partners and found out that they need tools to increase revenue.

D-Link, in response to their channel partner needs, implemented an online web-based application or partner portal where partners will be able to increase their productivity. The portal allows the channel partners to have a distance learning training platform in order to familiarize themselves with the company's products. The portal will also increase the selling efficiency of partners through certification, deal registration and collaboration between channel managers and partners. The D-Link certifications included are D-Link Certified Specialist or DCS and the Certified Professional or DCP. The certifications are awarded to the most dedicated channel partners who excel not only in the technical aspect of the products but also contribute to the sales revenue. Having the vendor certify the reseller lends competency and trustworthiness that entice customers.

Included in the VIP program are new incentives or compensations labeled D-Link Volume Incentive Rebate or VIR for high performing resellers. Another new module included in the partner portal is the addition of deal registration. To encourage partners to register deals, discounts are given to successfully approved and closed deals by partners. A Bounty Program, on the other hand, provides protection to partners who invested effort, time and money but failed to close the deal.

          Make it happen or watch it happen?        
Some make it happen and some watch it happen. The conservative-minded have always waited for someone else to prove something to be good. While the bold and visionary have made the case for change based on a willingness to imagine. All of us want good things for everyone and with a major shift upon us whether we want it or not, developing a vision that fits the shift and benefits as many of us as possible is necessary if we are not to be left behind.

I am very excited about this partnership and i the people i am working with couldnt be greater. I sort of stumbled upon this relationship, but once i heard the amps, i was sold. The Penta is one of the coolest amps I have heard in a long time. It has five settings that takes you through the different gain stages of the amp. from clean all the way to that mid scooped metal. It has two settings that are very reminiscent of classic 50 watt british type amps... it has el34s and sounds really cool. The cab is ported and sounds very tight and clear. The JSX 212 is a very cool little combo. Its the size of a fender twin and has an amazing clean tone as well as killer spring verb. It has a crunch and an ultra channel that give you plenty of head room for all the tube gain you may want. Its 4x12 cab that can make it a very cool looking 6x12 rig has custom speakers and a mic output that sends a true signal that sounds just like the cab is being micd. Look for this stuff this year when we are out on warped as well as the second half of 08. hope to see you guys out there... check out the gear at www.peavey.com.

peace love and peaveyyyy...

          Thoughts on the Dell Inspiron Mini 9        
First, holy crap! The box was the size of my phone book, seriously - a tiny, tiny bit longer, but that’s it. Weight is fantastic for travel.

Second, it’s pretty - I have the black and it just looks good.

Screen: really well lit - one of my coworkers is considering one after just seeing mine and noticing how easy it is to read it is. Well lit and wide - things look right.

Wireless - as easy as any other to pop right onto my home wireless, the university access and the one at the Phoenix airport (where I am at the moment).

Keyboard - this is where I had my most worries. I’d seen the ASUS eee’s and hadn’t been impressed with them - they were just a little too small for my fingers. This one? Dell did a good job with this. As long as I get my fingers on the right home keys, I’m good to type as normal. Very pleased with it.

I got the 1 G memory, 16 G hard drive, with XP and I think it will have been worth it - for what I want it for (work and personal travel and the like), XP should make hooking up to wireless networks fairly seamless, while I wasn’t sure about Linux (think it probably would be ok, but I went with the easy for this one.).

Because my flight's getting ready to start boarding, I'll just link to my photos for now

I'm sure after this trip I may have some updates with drawbacks, and will update then.

          Apple, T-Mobile Big Winners In Latest American Customer Satisfaction Index Report        
Apple, T-Mobile Big Winners In Latest American Customer Satisfaction Index Report

The latest American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) report has just been published this week, providing information on which companies today have scored the best in terms of achieving customer satisfaction among US consumers in industries such as wireless service, mobile devices, fixed line phone, Internet service, and subscription TV.

In the world of smartphones, Apple appears to have pleased its customers the most. Last year, the iPhone maker tied with Samsung in terms of customer satisfaction in smartphone usage, both scoring 80 out of 100. But this year, Apple has managed to one up its fierce South Korean rival, garnering a score of 81 out of 100, barely edging Samsung who managed to get an 80 out of 100 rating (same as last year’s).

2016 is beginning to look like a down year for smartphone devices, but according to the latest ACSI report, the average score for smartphone manufacturers has actually improved, increasing to 79 out of 100 this year, compared to 78 out of 100 in the last couple of years, 76 out of 100 in 2013, and 74 out of 100 in 2012.

Apple was the only smartphone company to show improvement, in light of the momentum generated by the relatively recent release of its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus devices, two of the best selling iPhone models of all time. Still, when it comes to customer satisfaction for specific smartphone models, a Samsung device actually takes the top prize. The Galaxy Note 5 phablet scored 86 out of 100, just ahead of Apple’s iPhone 6s Plus, which scored 85 out of 100. On third and fourth place are another two Samsung handsets, the Galaxy S6 Edge+ and the Galaxy Note 4.

As for wireless carriers, T-Mobile has plenty of reason to celebrate this year. T-Mobile has actually outscored industry leader Verizon Wireless in terms of customer satisfaction. Among the Big Four (Verizon Wireless, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint), T-Mobile has taken top honors, scoring 74 out of 100. But wait -- the best scoring wireless carrier overall is actually a prepaid mobile operator, TracFone Wireless, which managed to get a score of 75 out of 100. In terms of improvement, Sprint was the winner, displaying an 8 percent increase. For all wireless carriers, the average score improved by 1.4 percent to 71 out of 100.

          T-Mobile Brings Android Marshmallow To Its Galaxy S6 Edge+, Galaxy Note 5 Devices        
T-Mobile Brings Android Marshmallow To Its Galaxy S6 Edge+, Galaxy Note 5 Devices

T-Mobile has just revealed that it will be bringing Google’s Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow mobile operating system to a couple of Samsung handsets, specifically the Galaxy S6 Edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5. As indicated in the wireless carrier’s support web pages, T-Mobile subscribers who own either the Galaxy S6 Edge+ or the Galaxy Note 5 can now check if they can already install the updates.

It has already been five months since Google rolled out Android Marshmallow (it debuted in November of last year), but as expected of any new Android version, it could take months before the update can get to mobile users’ Android powered devices. This is because Google’s mobile OS has a pretty slow upgrade process -- wireless carriers and phone makers alike have to do their own separate testing (and even customization) before they can deploy a new version to every qualified mobile device available out there. And because there are so many eligible Android powered devices out there, the updating process naturally takes a while to reach all handsets.

In the case of Android Marshmallow, it did manage to make some progress as more and more mobile network operators and device manufacturers start their deployment, slowly but surely. Several days ago, Google’s Android Developers Dashboard reported that Android Marshmallow has increased its adoption rate two fold over the course of a month. In the week ending April 4th of this year, Android Marshmallow had been installed on 4.6 percent of all Android run handsets that paid a visit to the Google Play Store. This percentage is certainly an improvement over the 2.3 percent registered during the previous month.

As for subscribers of T-Mobile who own Galaxy S6 Edge+ or Galaxy Note 5 smartphones, they can expect to get the Android Marshmallow update some time between now and May 20th next month. Users who are on Wi-Fi will be prompted to download their Android Marshmallow update as soon as it is made available. To check for the update manually, all users need to do is to to Settings, scroll down to the System section, and then select the About device setting. Then proceed to tap Software Update and then tap OK in order to check if the update is already available. It should be noted that the Android Marshmallow update is about 1.34 gigabytes big, so users may want to make sure they have enough bandwidth and time to install the newest version of the OS.

          T-Mobile Launches Tablet Rebate Promo, Four-Line Family Plan Deal        
T-Mobile Launches Tablet Rebate Promo, Four-Line Family Plan Deal

Not only did T-Mobile announce new additions to its Binge On and Music Freedom services this week, the third biggest wireless carrier in the United States also took the opportunity to unleash a new tablet rebate special offer (limited time offer only), as well as launch a new four line family plan deal. 

Beginning on April 6th of this year, any customer who purchases any flagship device made by Apple, Samsung, or LG on the wireless carrier’s Equipment Installment Plan can enjoy savings of up to 50 percent, or $200, on any tablet device by the same mobile manufacturer. To illustrate, those who are getting any new iPhone device can get to take home an iPad tablet for half the regular price. For those who are thinking of purchasing a smartphone from Samsung, know that you can save on tablet devices such as the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 or the Galaxy Tab S2. Eligible Samsung smartphones include the latest flagship devices the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge, last year’s Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, and Galaxy S6 Edge+ phones, and the Galaxy Note 4 and the Galaxy Note 5 phablets. As for those looking to buy the V10 smartphone from LG, they will get a half price discount on the LG G Pad F 8.0.

It should be noted though that this tablet rebate special offer from T-Mobile comes with a few caveats. For one, availing customers are required to sign up for a qualifying service plan in order to become eligible for the discounted tablet devices. Also, the 50 percent savings or the $200 will be paid in the form of a prepaid MasterCard, which will be handed over within 8 weeks from the date of purchase. Lastly, this promo does not apply to LG’s latest flagship device, the G5, or even last year’s G4 smartphone.

Aside from the tablet rebate promo, T-Mobile is also launching a new version of its in-demand four line family plan promo. This time around however, the wireless carrier has decided to include unlimited voice calls, text messaging, and data, plus 10 gigabytes of 4G LTE data for each line of service. Customers can now have four lines of service for $140 a month, or only $35 each line, excluding any device payments. For good measure, the plan also comes with Simple Choice perks, such as the Binge On and Music Freedom features.

          AT&T Launches New Switching Deal, Plus Buy One Get One Promo        
AT&T Launches New Switching Deal, Plus Buy One Get One Promo

AT&T has just revealed a new promotional deal for those customers thinking of switching to the network from other rival wireless carriers. Not only that, the second biggest wireless carrier in the United States has also decided to launch a new “buy one smartphone, get one free” special offer to switching customers.

AT&T’s newest switching deal is offered to all existing subscribers of the other wireless carriers making up the Big Four in the US, namely Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile, and Sprint. Those who avail of this promotional deal can get to redeem up to $650 back for each line of service they port to AT&T. But in order to become eligible for this offer, these customers are required to transfer their mobile phone number and service to AT&T and buy a brand new handset via the wireless carrier’s Next early upgrade plan.

When interested parties activate their device on a new postpaid line of service and then trade in their old handset, they will get either AT&T store credit or an AT&T promotion card for their handset’s trade in value (minimum $10). Once the customer has finished setting up his new AT&T account, he will have to hand over the final statement from this previous network provider to AT&T (customers can do it via this link).

As for those customers who are required to pay early termination fees or final device payments when making the switch, they will receive an AT&T Visa prepaid fit for the amount to be paid, with the trade in value of their old handsets deducted from the amount. As mentioned earlier, AT&T is offering as much as $650 back for each line of service the customer ports.

Interested customers can also choose to combine this switching deal with AT&T’s “buy one smartphone, get one free” special offer. When they purchase a qualified Apple iPhone handset or Samsung Galaxy smartphone on either a new line of service, or (for existing customers) an upgrade, they will get a second eligible smartphone from the same phone maker (Apple or Samsung) absolutely free of charge. This offer only applies to the iPhone 6s, and Galaxy smartphones such as the Galaxy S6, the Galaxy S6 Edge, the Galaxy S6 Edge+, the Galaxy S6 Active, and the Galaxy Note 5. 

All well and good, but beware of the catch -- customers must buy the second handset on AT&T’s Next 24 option, which typically spreads payments over a period of 30 months. Moreover, customers will have to add their free handset to a new line of service on qualifying postpaid plan, e.g. Mobile Share Value.

          T-Mobile’s Half-Off Smartphone Event: Buy A Phone, Get Another At Half The Price        
T-Mobile’s Half-Off Smartphone Event: Buy A Phone, Get Another At Half The Price

After revealing that it is updating its Simply Prepaid plans by providing more fast data every month for its prepaid customers, T-Mobile now unveils a special offer for its postpaid subscribers. This time around, the third biggest wireless carrier in the United States presents its Half-Off Smartphone Event, wherein mobile users can purchase a handset and then get a second device with a 50 percent discount. This new promotional deal is a limited time only offer, and T-Mobile has not announced yet just when it will end, which means that interested parties better take advantage of this right now. Also, the offer is made available in store and via T-Mobile telesales. 

T-Mobile’s newest special offer is rather unique in the sense that unlike other deals out there, the 50 percent savings is applied immediately at the exact time of purchase, which means that customers can expect no mail in rebates or waiting periods. For those interested, they should note that they can purchase their first handset at full price upfront, or choose to do it via the wireless carrier’s Equipment Installment Plan. Mobile devices on Jump! and Jump! On Demand are not part of this new offer, and there are no phone trade ins involved. Lastly, the second handset purchased must be from the same phone maker, and must be of equal or lesser price to the first handset purchased.

So which mobile devices are included in this newest offer? These include Apple’s iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, and iPhone 6s Plus; Samsung’s Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge+, and Galaxy Note 5; and LG’s G4 and V10 smartphones.

To avail of T-Mobile Half-Off Smartphone Event offer, mobile users will need to have either a new line of service, or a current existing one, for each handset they purchase. On top of this, the wireless carrier is putting a limit of 12 new mobile devices for each customer. This means that those looking to really take advantage of the deal can bring home as many as half a dozen smartphones all coming with a 50 percent price discount.

T-Mobile appears to be gathering some momentum heading into only the second month of the year. Apart from boosting the data on its Simply Prepaid plans and then launching the Half-Off Smartphone Event, T-Mobile also introduced its #BallBusterChallenge a week ago. Right now, the wireless carrier is still behind industry leaders Verizon Wireless and AT&T, but if it remains consistent in announcing new promos, it should be able to gain ground.

          Best Buy: Purchase Or Lease A Samsung Phone Via Verizon/AT&T/Sprint And Get A Free HDTV        
Best Buy: Purchase Or Lease A Samsung Phone Via Verizon/AT&T/Sprint And Get A Free HDTV

Best Buy has just unwrapped a new deal for fans of Samsung tech products. The American electronics retail giant has announced that any customer who decides to purchase or lease a Samsung Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge+ or Galaxy Note 5 via Verizon Wireless, AT&T or Sprint will also get to receive a 32 inch Samsung LED HDTV absolutely free of charge. This really generous deal is made available by Best Buy until January 2nd of next year. 

It is only less than five days to Christmas and no doubt retail establishments everywhere are now unveiling their last minute promos and special offers in order to get consumers to make that one last purchase before the holiday shopping season officially ends. As for those who have not gotten to buying presents for themselves or for their loved ones yet, Best Buy’s deal gives them an opportunity to do just that.

With Best Buy’s latest deal, the mechanics of this offer may vary depending on which wireless carrier you are buying your Samsung mobile device with. For instance, with Verizon Wireless, customers can buy the handset unactivated and free of any standard smartphone agreement by paying the full retail price upfront, paying for the handset on a subsidized basis by way of the normal two year agreement, or choosing to purchase it on a monthly installment plan. 

For those who prefer to buy their Samsung device with AT&T, they can get an AT&T handset unactivated and free of contract by paying the full retail price upfront, or paying it off on a monthly installment basis through AT&T’s Next program. 

As for Sprint, customers can get the phone unactivated and free of contract by paying the full retail price upfront, paying for the device on a subsidized basis by way of the standard two year agreement, choosing to purchase it on a monthly installment plan, or leasing it via Best Buy’s exclusive rate plan.

Admittedly, the mechanics are a bit technical and specific (the full details are found here). It might be a wiser decision to just contact a Best Buy representative in order to fully understand one’s options, especially with regards to choosing from among the three major wireless carriers. 

Best Buy has really been busy during the holidays. Not a week ago, the electronics retail giant offered Apple’s latest iPhone model, the iPhone 6s, for only $1. Although that special offer has since expired, consumers can still take advantage of the most recent one, albeit it involves Samsung handsets this time.

          Sprint To Customers: Buy New Samsung Handsets And Get Free 32-Inch Samsung TVs        
Sprint To Customers: Buy New Samsung Handsets And Get Free 32-Inch Samsung TVs

Sprint has announced that it will be giving away 32 inch Samsung TVs to its subscribers who decide to purchase or lease selected Samsung mobile devices during the holiday season. Indeed, any subscriber of Sprint who purchases any of Samsung’s Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge+, or Galaxy Note 5 from December 18th to December 24th will get to receive a Samsung LED TV absolutely free of charge. This special offer is made available to all new subscribers who opted to switch from a rival network and to all current subscribers who are looking to upgrading or getting an additional line of service.

The last month or so of the year has seen Sprint ramp up its efforts in introducing new promotions and special deals. Some may remember that about a month ago, the wireless carrier had brought back its Cut Your Bill in Half promo, wherein Sprint is promising to slash the bills by 50 percent of subscribers who decide to defect from other major US wireless carriers such as Verizon Wireless, AT&T, and T-Mobile to Sprint. And during the recent Black Friday weekend, Sprint also took the opportunity to give away 24 inch LG TVs.

It is safe to say that the holiday season is fully underway, and naturally, wireless carriers everywhere are now trying to one up each other especially in announcing holiday deals and year ender promos. Perhaps the most visible example is T-Mobile, which through its Unwrapped promotional campaign, has introduced tailor made offers designed to grab away subscribers from its competitors, especially fellow major wireless carriers such as Sprint. As a matter of fact, T-Mobile had offered to give a $200 credit to subscribers of Sprint who are thinking of switching to T-Mobile. 

Industry leaders, Verizon Wireless and AT&T, are joining in on the fun, too. The Big Red has decided to start giving away additional monthly data allotments absolutely free of charge to its new and existing subscribers who decide to upgrade or add extra lines of service. As for AT&T, it launched a new promo that offers to give a bonus smartphone for free for customers who purchase new select handsets.

In the wireless industry, one can not just sit idly by while your competitors are targeting your subscribers. It is no surprise then that Sprint is also riding the holiday promo wave. The wireless carrier used to be the third biggest mobile services provider in the United States, but has since seen its number 3 spot usurped by T-Mobile. Obviously, Sprint wants to bounce back, and this holiday season, it is more than ready to put up a fight.

T-Mobile Offers $100 Off, Free 1 Year Netflix Subscription On Selected Samsung Phones

T-Mobile ended its Unwrapped promotional campaign with yet another generous offer, promising a discount in the amount of $100, plus one full year of subscription of Netflix absolutely free of charge, on a select number of Samsung mobile devices. Specifically, the discount applies to devices that include the Samsung Galaxy S6, the Galaxy S6 Edge, the Galaxy S6 Edge+, and the Galaxy Note 5, at the point of sale. The promo period starts this Friday, December 18th until December 23rd of this year for the Samsung phone discounts and until December 31st for the free one year of subscription of Netflix. 

The holiday season has seen the third biggest wireless carrier in the United States take an aggressive approach in introducing promo after promo, all designed to keep T-Mobile’s existing subscribers from defecting to other rival networks, at the same time, enticing current customers of other wireless carriers to switch over to T-Mobile. Each Unwrapped special offer was often customized to target a specific wireless carrier competitor. Indeed, T-Mobile has so far gifted three months of unlimited LTE to subscribers of its Simple Choice plans, given one free year of subscription of Hulu to switching customers from Verizon Wireless, provided generous discounts to iPhone devices for defecting subscribers from AT&T, and a $200 credit to Sprint mobile users who decided to jump over to T-Mobile. 

Just recently, T-Mobile has also launched an incentive program via its prepaid subsidiary, GoSmart Mobile. Customers under GoSmart Mobile’s $45 a month plan will get to receive an additional 100 megabytes of high speed data for every four renewals, as well as up to 500 megabytes of high speed data after 20 renewals. As for those who do choose to change their plan, they may still get a chance to keep the data they accumulated, and even use it or keep accumulating more data until they decide to switch back to their original $45 plan. If they do, however, opt to cancel their GoSmart service, they will end up losing all the additional megabytes of high speed data. The same goes if they decide to reactivate their service. 

As indicated in a report by Tech Times just this week, the devices mentioned in this post are set to get 75 megabytes worth of security updates on their software system. These security updates mostly consist of fixes and protocols that aim to address certain safety vulnerabilities that have been plaguing the South Korean phone maker’s flagship devices and other high profile smartphone releases.

Honda has unveiled today the 2011 Honda Accord Sedan and the 2011 Honda Accord Coupe and announced that both models will go on sale at the middle of this August. The 2011 Honda Accord Sedan and Coupe receive significant updates including improved fuel economy, enhanced exterior and interior styling. Accord offers a unique balance of style, performance, efficiency and value specific to each individual model.

Improvements to vehicle aerodynamics, engine friction and transmission gear ratios all contribute to significant fuel economy improvements. The EPA fuel-economy ratings for the 2.4-liter four-cylinder Sedan models equipped with an automatic transmission improve by 2 mpg in the city and 3 mpg on the highway, for a city/highway rating of 23/34 mpg. As for the 3.5-liter V-6, preliminary EPA fuel-economy ratings for the Sedan are 19/30 mpg city/highway mpg, an improvement of 1 mpg in highway driving.

The exterior changes are mostly focused on the front fascias, which now use the design language introduced by the more or less eye-delighting Accord Crosstour. Both versions have received a new front grille and revised bumpers. The cars also comes with redesigned rear bumpers, new lightweight alloy rims, while the sedan’s tail lights have been redesigned.

Interior improvements concern the repositioning of the climate-control buttons on the left side of the control stack, closer to the driver for ease-of-use, with less-frequently used buttons now located on the right side. In addition, all models get new seat fabrics and an updated instrument panel design.

Set to go on sale in mid-August, the 2011 Honda Accord Sedan and Coupe receive significant updates including improved fuel economy, enhanced exterior and interior styling and the addition of a new leather-equipped Special Edition (SE) trim level. Available as either a sedan or a coupe in 4-cylinder and V-6 variations, the Accord offers a unique balance of style, performance, efficiency and value specific to each individual model.

"For 2011, the Accord evolves again with sharpened styling inside and out, fuel economy gains and a broader application of popular features," said Erik Berkman, vice president of Corporate Planning and Logistics for American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "The Accord is designed to deliver a consistently rewarding ownership experience in the areas that matter most to sedan and coupe drivers."

Improvements to vehicle aerodynamics, engine friction and transmission gear ratios all contribute to fuel economy improvements. The EPA fuel-economy ratings1 for Accord 4-cylinder sedan models equipped with an automatic transmission improve by 2 miles per gallon (mpg) in the city and 3 mpg on the highway, for a city/highway rating of 23/34 mpg.

The 2011 Accord Sedan's exterior expresses a more upscale and powerful presence with a new style for the front grille, front bumper and rear deck lid, along with a new wheel design.

Building on the sedan's design character, the Accord Coupe's unique muscular stance is enhanced with a bolder front grille design, new front bumper shape, enhanced brakelight appearance and a new wheel design for V-6 models.

Striking a balance between value and luxury, the Accord SE Sedan offers the additional features from the popular Accord LX-P with the added luxury of leather-trimmed seating, heated seats, driver's power-lumbar support and a leather-trimmed steering wheel.

New features on certain models include steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters on the Accord EX-L V-6 Coupe, a USB Audio Interface on all coupe models and Accord EX and EX-L Sedans, and a rear view camera on sedans equipped with the available Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation2 System™. Additionally, Accord EX-L V-6 models receive a two-position memory system for the driver's seat. Additional interior updates on all models include new seat fabrics on models with cloth seats, an updated instrument panel design and more-refined accent points throughout the interior.

Interior styling on all models provides attainable luxury with generous standard equipment, world-class ergonomics and intuitive vehicle controls. The front seats are designed to provide generous lateral support and to complement the Accord's sporty side. The fold-down, rear seatback offers cargo-carrying versatility and also includes a lockable pass-through for long items like snow skis.

New for 2011, the most frequently used climate-control buttons are now positioned on the left side of the control stack, closer to the driver for ease-of-use, and less-frequently used buttons are now positioned on the right side.

          Wearable Technology Gift Ideas for Fun and Sports        

Wearable technology is especially interesting when it comes to fun and sports. 

There are many different ways you can use technology to enhance adventures and improve your performance.

Here's My Top 3 Wearable Technology Gift Ideas for Fun and Sports

GAME GOLF Digital Tracking System

The GAME GOLF Digital Tracking System will help you improve your golf game by analyzing your entire round of golf.  Unlike some trackers, this one does more than just provide data about your swing.

This small device will capture a ton of information, but won't get in the way of your game.  You'll simply turn on the power, place the device on your belt and then you're ready to play.

You will also need to install the tags that go with each club.  Then before you take each shot, you'll need to place the tag next to your device.  This takes less than a second and just requires a simple tap.

After that, your GAME GOLF will start tracking information.  It uses the club that you've chosen, combined with where you are on the course to visualize your entire round of golf. 

Rather than analyzing your swing, this device actually helps you get a big picture idea of how you play the entire game.  You'll be able to visualize the entire round and see both your successes and the mistakes you've made.

94Fifty Smart Sensor Basketball

If you're a basketball player, the 94Fifty Smart Sensor Basketball is one of the best tools you'll find for improving your game.  This is the tool that the National Association of Basketball Coaches considers its official smart ball - and for good reason.

At first glance, it looks like any basketball you've ever seen.  But upon closer inspection, you'll find that it includes many features that will help track your performance and improve your game.

The ball is activated when it's been bounced four times and will go to sleep if it doesn't have any activity for over five minutes.  This helps extend the battery life and not waste needed energy. 

The battery is designed to provide you with eight hours of life before needing to be recharged. You'll receive a wireless battery charger with the ball, making it easy to charge it up when the battery is drained and it's not in use.  

You can connect the ball to an app on your iOS or Android smart device - and as you play, it will transmit information. You'll learn the statistics about your shot speed, shot arc, and shot spin.

Contour ROAM2 Waterproof Camera

The Contour ROAM2 Waterproof Camera is built for the adventurer in you.  This is a simple camera that's a great value for your budget and will allow you to take high quality video wherever you happen to go.

The camera comes in four different colors - including black, blue, red, and green.  The camera is small enough to operate with just one hand.  And this camera is waterproof - even without an additional case. 

You can use it underwater without having to add any extra bulk to it. When you're ready to record, you can just slide the Instant On-Record switch into the on position and record. 

This makes it easy to turn the recording on and off - even if you're wearing gloves or have other bulky equipment to handle. The quality of this camera is outstanding.  It records 60 frames per second when you're shooting and gives a smooth playback.

The camera comes with a built-in laser level that's perfect for making sure you have the angle you really want.  With other cameras, you have to guess - but this one allows you to have pinpoint accuracy.


          Wearable Technology Gift Ideas for Fitness        

One of the areas where you’ll find the most wearable technology is that of fitness.  Most people want to look and feel their best, but it can be hard to develop healthy habits of exercise, good sleep, and good nutrition.

Wearable technology offers some support to help motivate you to incorporate healthy habits.  You can find personalized coaching, competitions, and trackers that simply help you stay on top of your goals.

Here's my top 3 Wearable Technology Gift Ideas for Fitness

Fitbit Flex Wireless Activity + Sleep Wristband

Keeping track of your fitness and sleep activity has never been easier now that the Fitbit Flex Wireless Activity + Sleep Wristband has arrived.  This tool is a must have for anyone interested in improving their health and fitness.

This wristband has a slim design that will fit in with just about any outfit you're wearing.  You can choose to wear it with a small wristband or a large one - both are included. 

It comes in a variety of colors including black, blue, gray, and tangerine - which allow you to choose how noticeable it is. You can use this little device to track all kinds of information that will help you evaluate your activity. 

You can track the number of steps that you walk, the distance you walk, and the calories that you burn.  You can also learn the total number of minutes you were active during the day.

Garmin Vivofit Fitness Band

If you're looking for a way to reach your fitness goals, the Garmin Vivofit Fitness Band is the perfect addition to your program.  This monitor has built-in motivators, which set it apart from other fitness monitors on the market.

Garmin is a well-known name in GPS technology - and now they've extended their technology to the fitness arena.  The Vivofit band is sleek and modern.  You can get it in a wide variety of colors including black, blue, purple, red, slate, and teal.

You can choose to get the model with a heart rate monitor or one without this feature.  If you get the heart rate monitor version, you'll also get a chest band that has to be worn during activity to accurately measure your heart rate

This monitor can be worn 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and it's also water resistant, so you can even keep it on in the shower or while swimming.  It tracks your steps, the distance you've moved, and the calories you've burned.

Misfit Shine Activity and Sleep Monitor

The Misfit Shine Activity and Sleep Monitor is a unique device that helps you track your activity throughout the day.  When you set fitness goals, it's helpful to have a monitor that keeps track of what you're doing so that you can measure your success in an objective way.

This monitor has a wristband with a circular display on top.  It looks a lot like a watch, but without any hands or numbers.  Instead, you have 12 small lights designed in a circle pattern. 

The lights are designed to give you an idea of how active you have been over the course of a day.  Those same lights can be used on the time setting to give a watch. 

Not only will you have a fitness monitor, but you'll also enjoy an elegant timepiece. It can track the steps you walk, but it also measures other activities - such as cycling, swimming, soccer, and basketball. 

You can use this monitor to track the calories you've burned as well as the distance you've traveled. This monitor also tracks the amount of sleep you get in any given night.


          Snapchat Spectacles, Live Video on Instagram, Silicone Valley and the Election – This Week in Tech        

This week was… interesting to say the least. As the United States went through an emotional roller coaster with the end of a dramatic presidential campaign season, the tech industry was on a crazy ride as well. The Spectacles of Snapchat Back in September, Snapchat announced their product Spectacles which are sunglasses with an integrated, wireless camera. Think a GoPro but in sunglasses form, specifically for Snaps. The Spectacles connect to your Snap via Bluetooth or WiFi, and transfer your recorded stories (“Memories”) directly into the app. What’s even more interesting is that any video you take with the Spectacles plays […]

          Over half of net new Sprint subscribers utilize government-sponsored ‘Lifeline’ service        
More than 50% of Sprint's net new subscriber additions at any given time utilize a government subsidy program called "Lifeline," which provides low-income Americans with free wireless minutes each month. Sprint provides the service under its "Assurance Wireless" brand, and it makes money beyond the small government subsidies when Lifeline customers spill over their monthly pool of minutes. Actual figures are not available, but the carrier is reportedly nearing a total of 2 million Assurance Wireless subscribers according to The Wall Street Journal. Read on for more. Sprint is not the only carrier involved in the program. Verizon Wireless and AT&T also participate, but it is unclear what percentage of new subscribers utilize Lifeline. In addition, TracFone has a SafeLink brand that also provides the service, and that brand already has more than 2 million subscribers. "Unfortunately, there's a large market of customers who are eligible based on their poverty level," Sprint senior vice president of consumer marketing John Carney said. "This is not a customer, without subsidy, we would have gone after originally. We wouldn't have been able to make money." Many customers take advantage of the Lifeline option because the service is cheaper than signing up for a wireline bill, even if they spill over their monthly minute allowance. "Due to the fact that I do not have a house phone, I tend to use the minutes a lot faster," Assurance Wireless subscriber Sharon Walters told The Wall Street Journal. "To add minutes, it's still cheaper than a phone bill." Universal Service Administration Co., a non-profit that runs Lifeline's fund, disbursed a total of $783 million during the first half of 2011, which is up 26% from the same period in 2010. It remains unclear exactly how much Sprint and the other U.S. wireless carriers are each receiving from the U.S. government for the program, but a chart from Universal Service Administration Co. shows that Sprint's Assurance Wireless brand made between $50 million and $75 million so far this year. SafeLink made more than $100 million so far in 2011 from the Lifeline program.

          Wireless review – global rap stars give London weekender a clear message        

Finsbury Park, London
With a lineup that offered an up-to-the-minute survey of the transatlantic rap and grime scene, this contrary festival may have finally found a USP to hang on to

Having been through various incarnations over the past 12 years – indie gathering, dance party, a place for big-name headliners – last year it seemed as though Wireless was perhaps caught between two stools: stadium dance from Calvin Harris and Chase & Status chafed against UK grime supergroup Boy Better Know in the headline slots. For 2017, however, the festival’s organisers home in on rap and hip-hop acts from both sides of the Atlantic to give it a more distinct identity. With the musical relationship between North America, the UK, the Caribbean and Africa increasingly symbiotic – from Drake’s collaborations with UK up-and-comers Dave, Jorja Smith and Giggs, to the new iterations of the club-ready “afrobeats” style – it’s now much easier to see the USP that the Finsbury Park weekender offers.

As things kick off on the Friday, Skepta collaborators Flatbush Zombies bring their rocky-edged east coast hip-hop, hurtling around tracks from their trippy 2016 debut album as well as earlier singles such as Glorious Thugs. They’re followed by AJ Tracey – the rising grime star with a penchant for rapping about anime – who rolls through his hits (Spirit Bomb, Leave Me Alone, Pasta) before calling New York’s Swoosh God to the stage for their collaboration, LA4AWEEK, a fresh rap banger that tells the tale of the pair getting drunk together over an expensive lunch in Los Angeles.

          No NaBloPoMo for Me        
I have participated in NaBloPoMo twice. It was always worth it, although I believe the resulting posts were not always all they could have been.

This year? I just can't do it. I have too much on my proverbial plate. However, I did think I would try to do something a little different. You see, I am trying something new. I am self-binding. And while that does conjure up an image for me that is less than pleasant, it is actually an attempt to create some space in my life... space that The Internet is taking up. The author of the article, Stop Your Search Engines, defines self-binding as...

"intentionally creating an obstacle to behavior I was helpless to control, much the way Ulysses lashed himself to his ship's mast to avoid succumbing to the Sirens' song..."

The Way We Live Now - Going Offline in Search of Freedom - NYTimes.com
(3 November 2009)

I've announced this on Twitter and Facebook so many of you will already know about this. However, here at Life, the Universe and Everything, I thought I might take some of my Internet-allowed time to share a little bit of my experience as I go along.

Regular readers (Hi there, all 5 of you!) will know that I am really, truly, FINALLY trying to write my masters' project. Life had thrown a few obstacles in my path. I have thrown a few obstacles in my path. But the countdown is on. I need to start knocking out chapters... like NOW, baby. But I am addicted to my social networking time. I had discussed this with my sister-in-law and when she read the article, she forwarded it to me. I don't have the right computer (a Mac) to install the program that it mentions, called Freedom, which lets you tell the computer when NOT to let you use the Internet. However, I do have a removable wireless card for my laptop, which is a long, embarrassing story of a woman who was so anxious to order her new computer that she accidentally deselected the internal wireless card during the ordering process.

The good news, though, is that allows me to hand over my wireless card to my husband at 10 a.m. and retrieve it from him at 8 p.m. These are somewhat random hours... it gives me time to do a little hanging out on Twitter with some of the bestest people ever in the morning and also attempts to make me available to my family for the afternoon and evening--without a laptop in between us.

Yesterday was Day One of my Ulysses-inspired experiment and things actually went very well. I did a little bit of writing on my project but the most beneficial aspect of it all was that I interacted with my family in a more meaningful way. It is really quite embarrassing to admit this but I am really glued to the computer for hours and hours a day. Homework was completed with less frustration and no raised voices... bedtime happened with less bother.... I felt better about myself to be honest. I did experience some anxiety about an hour or two before 8 p.m. but I think that was more due to worries about the writing process for my project than withdrawal from Web 2.0.

Over the next month, I am planning on giving updates... on my writing progress... on the dynamic at home... anything related to this bid at reclaiming space in my life. I'll see you around the 'verse... before 10 a.m. and after 8 p.m., Monday through Friday!

          Artist Interview: Beat Black        
If you've been loitering around the Deviant Art community or in the handmade selections on Etsy, you may have stumbled on the creations of Sarah Norton, the owner of Beat Black.

We had chatted a few times online, but I actually got to meet Sarah when she had a booth at Fan Expo in Toronto, Ontario, last year. She happened to be at a booth in the aisle behind mine. It was a three day event that kept us both busy, but on the last day I finally had some time to check out her creations up close and personal. I have to say, though, that even though her photos are well taken, vivid, and bright... they certainly don't do the real thing justice!

If I didn't have to be back at my booth, I probably could have spent all day staring and just going through each and every piece, touching it and seeing all the little delicate details that go into every creation. The bases of her designs are well shaped and thought through, the colours are vibrant and fun, and the details really pop with the application of a black acrylic patina. And they're so small!

After she got some time to peel away from her booth as well, she got over to my booth to check out my wares. We had agreed on the spot that at some point we must do a trade, and a few months later - we did!

I now have the pleasure of owning two pieces of Beat Black jewellery - and both of them in Monster Kookies colours! How that made me smile. I got a one-eyed mutant cupcake in purple and green, and a lovely grenande in a bright lime green - the little pin (made from a jumpring) is just the perfect little detail that finishes it off. As you can see above, I took a photo of them in my hand.

These were a trade for one of my Mechanical Birdies - she ended up naming him Nutmeg. I'm sure he's got a good home with her.

In addition to owning a few of her pieces, I decided to ask a few questions so that I could post the photos of my newly aquired Beat Black wares along with a look into what she does as an artist. I asked her several questions, but I am going to share some of my favourites.


Where did you first discover polymer clay? What inspired you to use it?
On Etsy, directly after I signed up. I saw these incredible little food pieces that I couldn't get enough of. Little steaks and cupcakes and ice cream! At first I didn't know what they were made of so I would search "mini food" over and over again then just eeeee and awww at them all.

There were SO many ideas I'd been carrying with me for years that I had no idea how to make. I'd tried modeling clay and those plastic sticks you melt in hot water but nothing was cutting it. If I only knew of polymer clay in high school... Nothing was going to stop me from using it after I learned the name.

Describe a day in the life of Beat Black. Do you have a routine?
Every day is different but I generally start by stumbling to the kettle/coffeemaker for a hot drink and turn on some music. Lately its been Petty or The Distillers to wake me up. If I'm really stoked about something I was working on before I went to bed I'll pick it right back up again before I even have a drink in my hand. From there it may be time to take and edit photos. After I'm fully awake I might walk to the post office. From there I usually find a place with wireless and sit with my laptop for an hour or so answering mail and such. If I'm not feeling very social or didn't bother blow drying my hair (or washing any paint off my hands) I'll pick a library otherwise its a cafe or friends house. Once that's taken care of its free time or home to work on finishing some pieces. When I have a show coming up its always straight home. Nearly all of the clay work I do is very late at night when there are less distractions. I literally fall asleep to the buzzing of the toaster oven as it bakes the clay.
What is your favourite/least favourite colour of clay to work with?
My favorites have always been orange and yellow but I don't get why. If I could get paid to make bananas all day I'd be in heaven. Least favorite is white because of all the dust and cross colour contamination.

Is there something that you want to make in the future, but haven't yet? What would it be?
Oooo yes. A ton of things from many different mediums. I've been planning out and researching ways to create a stop motion film. That's probably one of the more exciting up and comers... for myself anyways.

What is your favourite claying tool to use?
I have two tools that I use; a refill blade for a box cutter, and a pin. The pin is my favorite. I do have other tools for clay, but I guess I like keepin' it ghetto.

Where does your inspiration come from?
Absolutely everything in my day to day life, present and past. The anatomy theme comes from growing up with a nurse for a mother, a combination of the movies I love with the plants in the garden have inspired my newest figures, books, tattoos, the stupid time management games I play too much of, photography, food I eat, dust balls, sketches that end up taking on a look I wasn't going for... literally everything.

If you could give a polymer clay beginner any wisdom, what would it be?
I often get asked for tips or secrets by people who are just starting out with clay. I almost feel like they're disappointed with my answer, but it remains the same. You really have to practice and keep at it to be really good. I was the suck when I first started but practice made all the difference. If you don't want to waste your clay, even just sculpting and re-sculpting the same piece without baking is a great way to learn.

If you would like to see more of Sarah Nortons creations, I suggest that you take a look at the Beat Black Gallery on DeviantArt. Make sure to take the time to visit her Website and browse her Etsy Shop, as well.

2015/09/14
アウディーから新型のA4セダンとアバントが発表されている。ボリュームゾーンの車だけに内容には力が入っているようだ。

今回のモデルチェンジの目玉はエンジンもさることながら、安全装備の充実、それにマンマシンインターフェースが格段に進化しているように見える。


アウディ新型A4の画像


では外観を中心に画像を見てみよう。
アウディ新型A4 2.0 TFSI quattroセダン
↑ アウディ新型A4 2.0 TFSI quattroセダンのフロント画像、元々カチッとしたコンサバな外観だったがさらにカチッとした感じ、品行方正でクリーンなイメージとなっている、画像はメーカーサイトより拝借

アウディ新型A4 2.0 TFSI quattroセダンのリア画像
↑ アウディ新型A4 2.0 TFSI quattroセダンのリア画像、従来の路線を踏襲しているがラインが少しシャープになり精悍さが増した、良く知らない人が見ると新型って気が付かないかも、画像はメーカーサイトより拝借

↑ アウディ新型A4 2.0 TFSI quattroセダンのサイド画像、リアウィンドウの形状からかキャビンが腰下から後退しているような印象を受ける、こうしてみると全く普通のセダンだ、画像はメーカーサイトより拝借

アウディ新型A4 2.0 TFSI quattroセダンのフロント画像イエロー
↑ アウディ新型A4 2.0 TFSI quattroセダンのフロント画像イエロー、アウディーの黄色は非常にきれいな黄色で個人的には大好きな色だ、ブルーと同じモデルだが活発そうに見える、画像はメーカーサイトより拝借

↑ アウディ新型A4 2.0 TFSI quattroセダンのリア画像イエロー、横から見ても余分なラインが無くクリーンなイメージ、今回のA4も非常に人気が出そうだ、セダンらしいシルエットで使いやすそうな車となっている、画像はメーカーサイトより拝借

アウディ新型A4 2.0 TFSI quattroセダンと3.0 TDI quattroアバントのツーショットフロント
↑ アウディ新型A4 2.0 TFSI quattroセダンと3.0 TDI quattroアバントのツーショットフロント、アバントは前から見るとセダンと全く変わらない、このクラスの車はまずワゴンボディーありきで作るのではないかと思うほどアバントのシルエットが素晴らしい、画像はメーカーサイトより拝借

アウディ新型A4 2.0 TFSI quattroセダンと3.0 TDI quattroアバントのツーショットサイド
↑ アウディ新型A4 2.0 TFSI quattroセダンと3.0 TDI quattroアバントのツーショットサイド、セダンよりもアバントのほうがシルエットは自然だ、このクラスの新しいベンチマークとなるかもしれないモデルだ、画像はメーカーサイトより拝借

↑ アウディ新型A4のインパネ画像、TTと同じくメーターパネルに12.3インチディスプレーが組み込まれている、さらにダッシュセンターに8.3インチディスプレーが付く、ディスプレーだらけだ、個人的にはディスプレーばかりになるのは好みではないがアウディー流にうまくインターフェースを作り重要な部分はブラインドタッチが可能だ、画像はメーカーサイトより拝借



↑ アウディ新型A4のメーターパネル、TTと同じ方式が採用されている、遠目にはアナログメーターと変わらないところが凄い、ナビの表示はハンドル越しに覗き込まないといけないので少し見ずらいかもしれない、画像はメーカーサイトより拝借

アウディ新型A4のシフトレバー部分
↑ アウディ新型A4のシフトレバー部分、シフトレバー自体はスイッチとなっているのでストロークが非常に短い、そこに手を置いてその前方のダイヤルを操作する方式となっている、これである程度のコントロールがブラインドタッチできる、なかなか良く考えられたインターフェースだと思う、パッと見はコンサバでよろし、画像はメーカーサイトより拝借

アウディ新型A4のリアシート画像
↑ アウディ新型A4のリアシート画像、ヘッドクリアランスも十分ありそうで居心地の良さそうなリアシートだ、オプションでリアシート用のディスプレーを選択する事が可能、普通のセダンでもこうした装備がされる時代になった、画像はメーカーサイトより拝借



どうもすでにドイツでは受注が始まっているようだ。デリバリーはもう少し先になるようだが日本に入ってくるのも想像よりも早いのではなきだろうか。
少々ボディーは大きくなったようだが正統派のセダンとして人気が出そうな印象だ。



今回はこのへんで

          iPhone 8 可能支援刷臉 Apple Pay 結帳        

最近 iOS 開發者從 HomePod 最新韌體代碼中挖出不少 iPhone 8 秘密,像是紅外線 3D 臉部辨識、無線充電、螢幕分辨率和無邊框設計。今天又有兩位開發者發現 iPhone 8 可能會使用臉部識別功能來完成 Apple Pay 驗證,來取代傳統的 Touch ID 指紋辨識掃描系統。

開發者 Daniel Niyazov 和 @r_idn 在 HomePod 韌體文件中發現了一個名為 com.apple.passbook.payment 的字符串,該字符串引用其他支付驗證數據中的「pearl.field-detect」和「pearl.pre-arm」 。我們之前已經了解到「pearl」代表著 Pearl ID,這是 Apple 為臉部識別系統取的代號,Apple 似乎打算將臉部識別技術與 Apple Pay 進行整合。

          Google to disclose WiFi snooping data to regulators amid allegations it was collected intentionally        
And the mess gets messier. A class action lawsuit filed against Google in Oregon has now been enriched with the allegation that Google willfully collected personal data with its Street View cars, rather than doing so accidentally, as it claims. It's a bold accusation, whose primary basis is a patent application, filed by Google in November 2008, for a "computer-implemented method of estimating the location of a wireless device." A subsidiary claim references the "obtaining [of] one or more packets of data transmitted" from one wireless device to another to help estimate accuracy of location results. That's the supposedly damning verbiage that shows Google intentionally created WiFi-snooping software, and it's also what's being relied on to show that Mountain View couldn't have been ignorant of the data collection going on. Yes, it's quite a stretch, but that's what lawyers are for: mental gymnastics.

Over in Europe, Google is doing its best to placate local regulators, some of whom are contemplating criminal charges against the multinational company, by agreeing to hand over all data that was collected by its vehicles. France, Germany and Spain will be first to peruse the info, though presumably there'll be an open door to other nosy governments as well. Doesn't that strike you as weird -- having your private data protected by letting a bunch more people look at it?

          Cooperstown All-Star Village Baseball Resort Registering Youth Teams for 2012 and 2013 Seasons        

New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/16/2011 -- Cooperstown All-Star Village, America's only baseball tournament resort for 10 and 12 year olds announces open team registration for the upcoming 2012 and 2013 resort season. Designed for the whole family, Cooperstown All-Star Village is dedicated to providing every player with a major league experience in an environment where teams from across the country can come to compete and have fun.

Founded by local business couple Martin and Brenda Patton in 2004, Cooperstown All-Star Village is a unique youth baseball camp where players compete in weeklong tournaments. The resort is located on the outskirts of baseball's birthplace of Cooperstown NY, just minutes from the National Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum and various other family-friendly attractions. "Our goal was to provide a high-quality baseball experience with professional facilities and uniforms for the players as well as a great experience for their families in a resort-like setting," said Martin Patton.

Eight state-of-the-art tournament fields modeled on professional field designs feature lights and batting cages equipped with Web cams that broadcast the games live on the Internet and back to the resort's full-service restaurant. The resort also has batting cages, a 24-hour medical staff complete with a fully equipped infirmary and outdoor gear boxes for the players.

In addition to the fields and the resort's mountain scenery backdrop, the Cooperstown All-Star Village resort consists of The Players Village, which features several spacious air-conditioned bunkhouses that can accommodate a number of teams and are outfitted with large screen televisions, a, game room, laundry service, as well as full-size beds for the coaches and umpires. The Family Village portion of the resort features two boutique hotels for the families, a large baseball glove-shaped pool, full fitness center, wireless Internet, coin-operated laundry and a relaxing full service restaurant.

          Gigabyte Brix gets Broadwell refresh        
Gigabyte Brix gets Broadwell refresh


Three 14nm SKUs so far

Gigabyte’s Brix series of mini-PCs and barebones is getting some fresh Intel silicon in the form of 14nm Broadwell processors.

The update comes as no surprise, as Gigabyte has a habit of updating Brix products on a regular basis, sometimes even beating Intel’s NUC in terms of new features. Intel announced Broadwell-based NUCs a few weeks ago, but so far only the Core i3-5010U is available in Europe – and availability is rather limited.

Overclockers.co.uk is now listing three new Gigabyte Brix models, including a Core i3-5010U model (Brix GB-BXi3H-5010). However, Gigabyte also has three much more powerful models – the Brix GB-BXi5H-5200, based on the Core i5-5200U, and the Brix GB-BXi7H-5500, powered by a much beefier Core i7-5500U processor. As we pointed out last month, new Broadwell parts don't feature spectacular base clocks, but their Turbo clocks are substantially higher than on comparable Haswell-based parts. 

All three models share the same chassis and much of the hardware, so you’re looking at two DDR3 SO-DIMM slots, a single mSATA 6Gbps port, one 2.5-inch drive bay, and an M.2 10Gbps port, used by the WiFi/Bluetooth module.

Broadwell Brix models also feature four USB 3.0 ports, HDMI 1.4a and mini DisplayPort 1.2 video outputs, S/PDIF via mini Toslink, 802.11ac wireless and Bluetooth 4.0.

While the Core i7 and Core i5 models offer a lot more CPU muscle, all three processors share the same Intel HD Graphics 5500 GPU, 3MB of cache and a TDP of 15W. The price difference between these versions and the Core i3 model is substantial and many consumers may find it hard to justify. The Core i7 version is listed at 454.99 GBP, the Core i5 SKU costs 344.99 GBP, while the Core i3 unit goes for 291,99 GBP. Overclockers.co.uk is currently taking pre-orders and none of them are available yet.

Keep in mind that this is just a single listing and the prices aren’t official yet, but Intel’s NUC with an almost identical spec seems a bit cheaper, as the Core i3 model can be ordered for 250 GBP in Britain or 299 EUR in Germany.


          Gigabyte rolls out Brix Gaming mini PC        



A8-5557M APU, R9 M275X graphics

Gigabyte is one of few vendors to buy into Intel's NUC push and we have to admit it is doing a somewhat better job than Intel. In addition to Intel based systems, Gigabyte is also looking at AMD parts and earlier this month it introduced the first NUC-sized barebones based on Richland low-voltage parts. You can check out the first AMD based Brix unit here.

 

However, the new Brix Gaming is going a step further. It's got a much bigger chassis based on recently introduced Brix Pro barebones. It measures 59.6 x 128 x 115.4mm but unlike standard Brix and NUC units, it also has a 2.5-inch drive bay in addition to an mSATA port. This means you can use a speedy mSATA SSD as a system drive and add some cheap storage in the form of a standard 2.5-inch hard drive. It also has four USB 3.0 ports, ac wireless and Bluetooth 4.0.

It is based on an A8-5557M APU, a quad-core Richland part with a base clock of 2.1GHz and a Turbo Core clock of 3.1GHz. The APU features HD 8550G graphics with 256 shader units. However, it also has a discrete R9 M275X GPU.

While it doesn't exactly sound like a high-end gaming rig, bear in mind that it is coming in a tiny package and it should still have plenty of muscle for most games. It might also make a sweet Steam machine. Unfortunately there is still no word on the retail price, but it won't come cheap. The Brix GB-BXA8-5545, with an A8-5545 APU sans discrete graphics, is priced at €249 and the gaming version should end up quite a bit pricier.

          Scientists wirelessly transmit high-speed data through, um, pork loin        

Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign used ultrasound to transmit high-speed data through pork loin and beef liver. Why? They're developing a system for controlling wireless medical implants and also stream high-definition video from inside the body.

"You can imagine a device that is swallowed for the purposes of imaging the digestive tract but with the capability for the HD video to be continuously streamed live to an external screen and the orientation of the device controlled wirelessly and externally by the physician," says engineering professor Andrew Singer.

Singer and his colleagues posted their results on arXiv in a paper titled "Mbps Experimental Acoustic Through-Tissue Communications: MEAT-COMMS."

“To our knowledge, this is the first time anyone has ever sent such high data rates through animal tissue,” Singer said. “These data rates are sufficient to allow real-time streaming of high definition video, enough to watch Netflix, for example, and to operate and control small devices within the body.”

That's a whole new spin on dinner and a movie.

          How to Extend the Range of a Wireless Baby Monitor        
1Attach a piece of metal to the baby monitor’s antenna. Cut a coat hanger, for example, and tape the long metal piece to the antenna. This wire or piece of metal can be any length but three to four inches should do the trick. This will help the simple 2 way radio’s gain, allowing it to have more reception. Do this on both monitors.
2Wrap the antenna and a piece of metal in aluminum foil on both baby monitors. This will help it receive signals from the other monitor better. Entirely cover the piece of wire with the aluminum foil.
3Place the baby monitor that you will hold onto as high as possible. While the monitor in the baby’s room must be near the baby so you can properly hear him, the higher up your baby monitor is, the better it will receive signals from the other monitor.

          Not For a Moment (After All) Lyrics & Chords | Sheet Music - Meredith Andrews        
Christian Chords and Lyrics


You were reaching through the storm, walking on the water
Even when I could not see
In the middle of it all, when I thought You were a thousand miles away
Not for a moment, did You forsake me
Not for a moment, did You forsake me

After all, You are constant
After all, You are only good
After all, You are sovereign
Not for a moment, will You forsake me

You were singing in the dark, whispering Your promise
Even when I could not hear
I was held in Your arms, carried for a thousand miles to show
Not for a moment did You forsake me

And every step, every breath You are there
Every tear, every cry, every breath
In my hurt, at my worst, when my world falls down
Not for a moment, will You forsake me
Even in the dark, even when it’s hard
You will never leave me
After all

          You Are I Am Lyrics & Chords | Sheet Music - MercyMe        
Christian Chords and Lyrics


I’ve been the one to shake with fear
And wonder if You’re even here
I’ve been the one to doubt Your love
I’ve told myself You’re not enough

Oh o-o-oh
Oh o-o-o-o-oh
Oh o-o-oh
Oh o-o-o-o-oh

I’ve been the one to try and say
I’ll overcome by my own strength
I’ve been the one to fall apart
And start to question who You are

You’re the one who conquers giants
You’re the one who calls out kings
You shut the mouths of lions
You tell the dead to breathe
You’re the one who walks through fire
You take the orphan’s hand
You are the one Messiah
You are I am
You are I am

I’ve been the one held down in chains
Beneath the weight of all my shame
I’ve been the one to believe
That where I am You cannot reach

The veil is torn
And now I live with the Spirit inside
The same one, the very same one
Who brought the Son back to life

Hallelujah, He lives in me
Hallelujah, He lives in me
Hallelujah, He lives in me
Hallelujah, He lives in me

          Illegal Cellphones Are Being Used To Assassinate Police Officers And Their Families. Beginning to sound more like we live in Mexico!        
Posted By Eric Lieberman On 11:00 PM 08/08/2017 
The assassin broke through the front door shouting “police” as Capt. Robert Johnson of Bishopville, S.C. was getting ready for work early in the morning March 5, 2010.
Johnson, a prison guard at the Lee Correctional Institution (LCI), immediately knew two things: He had to get the assassin’s attention in order to protect his wife — sleeping quietly in the nearby bedroom — and the hit was undoubtedly connected to a strange visitor he encountered the evening prior.
“I instantly knew this was a hit,” Johnson explained in an interview with The Daily Caller News Foundation. “I came out of the bathroom and yelled to try and draw the guy away from the bedroom ’cause my wife was in there. I drew him to me.”
His diversion plan worked. The assassin came down the hallway and tussled with him, while his wife was able to escape to the front yard. But during the struggle, the attacker raised his gun and fired six times into Johnson’s stomach and chest.
The hit was connected to the massive influx of contraband cellphones in Johnson’s prison, where he’d worked for 15 years. Prisoners smuggle these phones into the correctional facilities so inmates running gang-related activities can still call the shots on the outside. They put them in inmates’ rectums, hollowed-out Bibles, or footballs thrown over a fence, bandages and prosthetic legs, and anything else they can think of to get the phone to the inside.
The problem is quickly becoming pervasive in America’s prison system, and regulators are starting to catch on. But as the bureaucratic processes move at a snail’s pace, corrections officers like Johnson have become targets for hitmen.
“A couple bullets went through me and landed on the floor,” Johnson said. “So he must have been standing over me shooting me, that’s how much he wanted me dead.”
An inmate at LCI coordinated the hit through a smuggled cellphone. He targeted Johnson because he was responsible for the detection and seizure of contraband at the prison. Johnson confiscated more than 5,000 illegal cellphones during his career, leaning on his 23 years of military intelligence experience.
After the assassin fled the crime scene, Johnson’s wife returned and called 911.

“I asked if I had to go the hospital,” Johnson recalled. “She said, ‘Of course, dummy.'” The two of them began reciting scripture together as they waited for help to arrive.
In transit to the hospital, Johnson told emergency responders he recognized the assassin as an ex-inmate who had been released from LCI just a few months before.
“The doctor said I was literally dead when I got off the helicopter,” he said, referring to his transfer to a trauma center. “Doctors thought I was going to die.”
While he doesn’t mind retelling the story, Johnson said he is still haunted by the beeping noises from the hospital room. “They gave me 63 units of blood,” he told TheDCNF. “They said I bled out three times and died on the operating table twice.”
Doctors placed Johnson in a drug-induced coma for two weeks, and told his wife there was very little hope he would survive.

The night before that fateful morning, Johnson recalls a man approaching his front door and asking for a “jump” to his car, which he claimed had a dead battery. Johnson didn’t go outside, and communicated with the man through his window. He had a personal rule of thumb not to leave the house after 9 p.m — an apt suspicion heightened by inklings of a potential hit he received from some of the inmates he looked over.
[dcquiz]
“I call them good citizens,” Johnson told TheDCNF. “They said ‘there’s a hit on you.’ The warden got a letter from an unknown inmate that there was a hit on me. So I took it seriously.”
While Johnson’s story is remarkable, it isn’t uncommon.
An inmate from Louisiana who escaped prison at the end of July is suspected of murdering the assistant warden’s daughter right after he slipped away. Police eventually shot the prisoner dead, but not before he completed the hit, which was allegedly coordinated through a contraband cellphone.
And there are more examples. In Georgia, a gang leader for the Sex Money Murder crew, a subsidiary of the infamous Bloods, ordered a murder of a baby from inside the prison. In April of 2014, nine people were charged in North Carolina for successfully organizing the kidnapping of a prosecutor’s father. In yet another instance, a 29-year-old man was charged for shooting a correctional officer while she was in her car. Through a contraband cellphone, an inmate directed the assassin within the local prison to murder the law enforcement agent.
Johnson says a lot of prison department leaders either don’t feel comfortable admitting they can’t control the criminal enterprises that occur within the confines of their prison, or fear violent retaliation. Some, though, aren’t so headstrong or worried.
Jon Ozmint, the former director of the South Carolina Department of Corrections from 2003 to 2011, said he’s been trying to persuade U.S. officials to take the problem seriously for years. There have been some formal meetings to discuss the issue, like a Commerce, Science, and Transportation Senate Committee hearing in 2009, but none have led to materialization of official policy.
“I was there in the hospital when his [Johnson’s] wife came out covered in blood, an innocent man we all presumed was killed because of an illegal cellphone,” Ozmint told TheDCNF in an interview. “We were one of the first states to file with the [Federal Communications Commission] on this issue. We were the first administration to bring contraband cellphones to the forefront.”
Ozmint was appointed by Republican Rep. Mark Sanford of South Carolina, who was serving as the state’s governor at the time. A large portion of the work during their tenures, which almost perfectly coincided, was to decipher ways to decrease contraband cellphones in the state’s prisons.
“I’m not a law and order kind of guy. I’m big on civil liberties,” Sanford said in an interview with TheDCNF. “But you actually lose rights when you’re incarcerated; you go to jail. The idea of somebody running a business, dealing drugs, planning hits, or whatever else, is unfathomable.”
“There was a recent escape here in South Carolina that was orchestrated by cellphones inside the prison,” he added.
Sanford sent a letter to the FCC in July asking the agency to review the use of cellphone jamming technology within prisons. While jamming is explicitly illegal under the Communications Act of 1934, there are a number of growing technologies that appear to fall outside the technical bounds.
Managed Access Solutions, or Systems (MAS), for example, is a technology that works by creating a local cellular network at a prison that all devices must access before communicating to the outside world.
“In simple terms, any device that is unknown to the prison-based cellular system is prevented from accessing the commercial mobile network of ATT, Verizon, T-Mobile, or Sprint as examples, and is continually managed by the specialized local prison cellular network that we install,” an executive at Securus, a company that develops and offers such technology, told TheDCNF in an interview. Securus urgently requested that the executive remain anonymous out of fear of violent retribution coordinated through contraband cellphones. “We call this our Wireless Containment Solution (WCS),” the executive continued, which is essentially an updated, superior version of most MAS technologies.
WCS is completely different than jamming, according to the company, which acknowledged that such a rudimentary method is unlawful. Jamming indiscriminately blocks out all network signals, while WCS treats each signal uniquely, basing the decision to obstruct signals based on “policy entries for known vs. unknown devices.”
“Jamming is like shouting in a room over everyone else’s conversation such that no two people can hear or understand each other,” the Securus executive said. “Our WCS communicates with cellphones using the same U.S. cellular bands and radio protocols used by commercial mobile carriers and does not drown out a room, but rather speaks each individual language (ex. LTE [Long-Term Evolution]) to each individual cellphone in order to connect to it and manage its ability to either access the public network or not.”
Dr. Patrick Diamond of Diamond Consulting, a firm that specializes in synchronization of networked systems among other functions, co-authored an extensive 2012 study into MAS with several other researchers. The California Council on Science and Technology (CCST) conducted and sponsored the report in response to an inquiry to investigate from California state senators. The study showed that illegal cellphones are not just endemic to South Carolina.
“Contraband cellphone usage is a problem that CDCR [California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation] takes very seriously,” Scott Kernan, secretary of the CDCR, said in an official statement.
The study found that contraband cellphones in prisons are a growing state and national security issue, and several different factors contribute to the problem, including inconsistent screenings at state prisons. It concluded at the time, however, that while more research is needed, MAS is not yet ready for the prison environment due to a number of reasons, including the fact that the capabilities of mobile devices are constantly evolving.
But just as cellphones can improve, so can MAS technology.
“In 2011/2012, managed access was in its technical infancy, as I noted in the CCST report,” Diamond said in an interview with TheDCNF. “Five years is several technical generations of improvement. As the NIJ [National Institute of Justice] report of July 31, 2017, states, ‘Managed Access appears to be able to provide a reasonable degree of protection, within technical boundaries.'”
Another proprietary possibility is Cell Warden Prison Protocol Beacon Technology, created by the company Cell Command.
“Cell Command has the only technology that literally turns the phone off, thereby shutting down every available function on the wireless device,” CEO John Fischer said in an interview with TheDCNF. “Competing technologies such as Managed Access Systems are easily defeated simply by switching sim cards. With one mobile hotspot, changing sim cards regularly provides a handful of non-carrier active phones full internet access complete with email and WiFi calling.”
“If the phone is turned off, none of this is possible,” he continued. “Sim cards and SD [secure digital] cards hold vast amounts of data, are very small, and are commonly transferred to nefarious visitors permitting outside instruction to other gang members.”
In countries such as Brazil, Honduras and El Salvador, barbaric gangs use contraband cellphones to videotape rape, decapitation, and dismemberment of rival gang members and correctional staff, according to Fischer, who adds that MS-13 is one of the most prevalent culprits. They also make the savage content “available for sale to the public where there is a sick appetite for brutal torture,” he said. “In the eyes of an inmate, just another means to make a living.”
Like Ozmint and Johnson, Fischer described how prisoners have essentially taken over the very area where they are supposed to be controlled, severely compromising correctional facilities’ ability to prevent, or at least contain, the criminal activity.
WATCH: 
For Fischer’s technology to work, though, it would have to be automatically installed on every device the telecommunications industry manufactures and offers — something the private sector thinks is a pipe dream.
Ozmint and Fischer don’t understand why it’s such a far-fetched concept, since the U.S. already mandates technology for other means of public safety. Rear Adm. Jamie Barnett (Ret.), the outside counsel for Cell Command who served as the FCC’s Chief of the Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau for several years, said there is plenty of precedence for the FCC designating such a technology. Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA), the public safety system that delivers Amber Alerts and other notifications, for example, is very different in the technical sense but is similar in regards to the policy that could bring it to fruition.
Companies voluntarily entered into the WEA at the encouragement of the FCC, Barnett told TheDCNF in an interview, arguing that force is not required to bring companies on board. In that case, the carriers joined in under the Wireless Response Network Act.
“The same concept could work for Cell Warden beacon technology, and it doesn’t need legislation,” Barnett said.
AT&T declined to provide comment but did cite input the company submitted to the FCC.
“AT&T supports rules that aggressively prevent and terminate the use of contraband wireless devices in correctional facilities, but these rules must not come at the expense of law-abiding wireless consumers,” the filing reads.
The conglomerate cited stories in Baltimore where drivers traveling near the city’s main prison have complained of their wireless communications being inappropriately swept up in the MAS system and blocked. The report comes from 2014, so the technology has improved, according to Securus. And those concerns don’t appear to address Cell Command’s beacon technology, which can limit its scope down to one meter.
Both AT&T and Verizon referred TheDCNF to the Cellular Telecommunications and Internet Association (CTIA), the trade organization which represents all major wireless providers, for comment. CTIA told TheDCNF that a “comprehensive remedy” for the illegal cellphone problem requires “action by all stakeholders,” which includes the “government, the public safety community and technology providers.”
FCC Chairman Ajit Pai seems more than willing to discuss potential solutions. Johnson told TheDCNF he met with several lawmakers on a recent meeting tour in Washington D.C. He said the only person to sincerely show interest was Pai, while others seemed dismissive, unmoved, and “didn’t write anything down.” While Johnson remembered Pai, he declined to name specific congressmen because he “met with so many, the names have blurred.”
TheDCNF sat down with Chairman Pai to discuss the issue of contraband cellphones in prisons.
“I’ve had the chance to visit correctional facilities from Bishopville, South Carolina, all the way up to Massachusetts, and all the way west of Fort Leavenworth [Kansas],” he told TheDCNF. “What I’ve heard from a variety of officials, both federal and state, is that these devices all too often are weapons, and also enablers of criminal activity.”
“That’s one of the reasons why I highlighted this issue over the previous couple of years and part of the reason why we took action this past March to implement some solutions,” he continued.
Pai cited his meeting with Johnson as “incredible” and “inspiring.”
“We don’t want to see another Captain Johnson, he’s just the tip of the iceberg,” said Pai. “I’ve talked to other correctional officers who live in fear of opening up the garage door at night when they come home, or getting in the car in the morning.”
Since CTIA said any decisive action would require all stakeholders, TheDCNF asked if Pai could envision sitting down with wireless carriers and other policymakers to come up with a potential solution, including discussing the implementation of MAS and Cell Warden technology, respectively.
“That’s one thing we’re trying to figure out, is there a solution that works for all the stakeholders involved,” Pai said. “This is one of them [Cell Warden] that has worked in a couple facilities that we’ve heard about. We want to figure out is this a reliable path forward?”
Ozmint, who is an expert on various technologies related to the blocking of contraband cellphones and now works as an attorney, said wireless carriers like AT&T and Verizon are not being genuine. He also voiced his frustrations with the FCC of years past, saying no one ever fully took law enforcement’s concerns of contraband cellphones seriously because â€œtheir masters of industry” influenced the agency.
Johnson felt the effect of that apparent neglect. He spent seven months in several medical facilities following the attempted hit job. But he has a lot more than scars to remind him of the severely traumatic event.

“I spent the last 6 years with holes in my stomach cause they couldn’t close them up,” he told TheDCNF. “I’ve had 23 different surgeries with more to come. I suffer from pain in my left leg 24/7. One of my lungs is badly damaged; I am only operating on one lung. I look forward to going to sleep at night cause I don’t want pain. I don’t take pills cause I don’t want to get addicted.”
The would-be assassin, Sean Echols, was able to inflict such serious damage because of a contraband cellphone belonging to the mastermind of the plan who was behind bars in the prison Johnson served. Echols was sentenced to 40 years for a separate crime, according to Johnson, a punishment that was actually more than he was set to face for the murder attempt.
After being asked why Echols took the larger punishment, Johnson said it was “because he was afraid of the mastermind” who is, of course, supposed to be unable to intimidate people and commit criminal acts while incarcerated. The architect of the hit would be able to hurt Echols or his family if the failed assassin cooperated with authorities because of inmates’ access to contraband cellphones.
Public attention to illegal cellphones within prisons is only in the nascent stages, despite the efforts made by Johnson, Ozmint, Fischer, Securus, and others over the last decade.
“Clearly, this is a problem that needs to be addressed,” Nicol Turner-Lee, a fellow at the Brookings Institution’s Center for Technology Innovation, told TheDCNF. “I think it’s important for the FCC to continue to explore the policy implications of any deployed technologies to ensure that it specifically solves the problem and does not encroach on the rights of others.”

Other policy analysts agree, particularly about the notion that the FCC should explore possibilities.
“More recently, newer technologies have enabled prisons to monitor contraband cellphone use and block unauthorized calls, without jamming, while allowing legitimate calls to connect,” Tom Struble, tech policy manager at the think tank R Street, told TheDCNF. “Hopefully, with technological advances and an engaged FCC, prisons can finally start to clamp down on contraband cellphones.”
Ozmint believes the Cell Warden’s beacon technology is the only way to fully address the complex issue of contraband cellphones. Johnson, who receives monetary compensation from Securus to help pay for medical expenses, advocates for the company’s WCS technology because he’s seen it work and knows firsthand that something must be done.
“I truly believe that while technology started this problem,” Johnson said, “technology will also solve this problem.”

AT&T announces DirecTV Now streaming packages


Company now offers three streaming services

Starting Thursday, AT&T says it will be launching DirecTV Now, an Internet-based video streaming version of its DirecTV satellite programming lineup at a much lower cost and without any contracts or installation fees.

During an event in New York City, the company unveiled its IP-based streaming service DirecTV Now in a market growing with competition from Dish’s Sling TV, Sony’s PlayStation Vue, SFN’s TV Now and soon Hulu’s live TV service. Over the past few years, consumers have looked to cord-cutting alternatives for lower monthly service plans, but the fact that some services only offer certain channels, movies or video-on-demand content often leaves them paying for multiple services at once, which brings the prices back up.

AT&T acknowledges the headaches of paying for too many subscriptions that often don’t work with every device, and now its cord-cutting alternative is to deliver content online through a single downloadable app, without long-term contracts or installation charges of its premium DirecTV satellite and U-verse IPTV offerings. Starting November 30th, it will have three video streaming services to choose from – DirecTV Now, FreeVIEW and Fullscreen.

DirecTV Now

AT&T plans to launch four tiers of DirecTV Now streaming service – 60 channels for $35 per month (Live a Little), 80 channels for $50 per month (Just Right), 100+ channels for $60 per month (Go Big) and 120+ channels for $70 per month (Gotta Have It). The service launches on November 30th and it will allow potential customers to try it free for one week.

To highlight the launch of the service, it will also be offering the 100+ channel package for $35 per month and customers can keep this price as long as they keep the package.

DirecTV Now video streaming will be available on Android, iOS, Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick, Google Chromecast devices, LeEco TV sets with Google Cast, Vizio TVs with SmartCast, and Internet Explorer, Chrome and Safari web browsers. In 2017, the company will add support for Roku TV and streaming devices, Amazon Fire tablets and Smart TV sets from Samsung and other major brands.

Starting November 29th, LeEco will be offering DirecTV Now service free with purchase of any LeEco smartphone or TV set through the LeEco online store. In addition, Lenovo will be offering one month of free service with the purchase of a new Intel Core series Lenovo laptop.

Fullscreen

Fullscreen is a mobile-first, video-on-demand service that launched earlier this year and offers over 1,500 hours of ad-free TV shows, films and original series licensed from AT&T’s studio partners. Existing wireless customers will be able to try the service free for one year starting November 30th and stream Fullscreen content without using any data.

"We know that not all consumers are going to watch paid TV," said David Christopher, chief marketing officer of AT&T entertainment and internet services group back in April. " We think the Fullscreen model is interesting and captivating, and gives a platform to young creators."

The service currently costs $5.99 per month and has doubled its programming since launch, with more original series and content announced a few weeks ago.

FreeVIEW

For users more interested in what DirecTV has to offer without necessarily paying for service, the company also has a sampling of on-demand content called FreeVIEW that can be accessed from the DirecTV Now app or website at any time, free of charge. This includes content from Audience Network, Otter Media properties and several other channels offered in the streaming packages.

Personalized advertising won’t go away

Of course, the catch about using any of these services is that AT&T will send out personalized advertisements in addition to curated content and recommendations based on what people watch. “This is an entirely new cost structure for AT&T,” said Enrique Rodriguez, Executive VP and CTO of AT&T Entertainment, “which means, in part, keeping costs down through targeted advertising.

The personalized advertisement efforts will also extend to the types of devices people watch content on, as this was not possible with traditional satellite and cable subscriptions using DVRs or set-top boxes. “Our ability to personalize and to target the advertising to every device, not just every consumer, is significantly higher than it has been in the past.”

ZeeVee Demonstrating ExtremeUSB® and SwitchableUSB™ Capabilities with Third Generation ZyPer4K™ Video Distribution Solution at InfoComm 2017

Live demonstration featuring uncompressed, zero latency 4Kp60 video plus USB 2.0 extension and switching using an off-the-shelf 10G Ethernet switch at ZeeVee booth #1761 from June 14-16 in Orlando, Florida

Burnaby, British Columbia – June 13, 2017 – Icron Technologies Corporation, a leader in USB and video extension technology, announced today that ZeeVee, Inc., a global manufacturer of video and signal distribution technology, will be featuring its newest ZyPer4K™ video distribution solution incorporating Icron’s patented ExtremeUSB® and SwitchableUSB™ technologies at the InfoComm 2017 show in Orlando, Florida, June 14-16.

 

The Zyper4K simplifies video distribution by offering virtual plug and play configuration using the ZeeVee Management platform with nearly any commercial off-the-shelf 10G Ethernet switch. The third generation ZyPer4K offers full HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 capability including support for uncompressed, zero latency 4K video. Optional inputs for DisplayPort, HD-SDI and Analogue are supported as well as the ability to create flexible multi-view and video wall configurations. By adopting Icron’s SwitchableUSB protocols, ZeeVee customers are able to dynamically switch video and USB 2.0 signals at the same time while enjoying the benefits of the ExtremeUSB suite of features such as transparent USB extension, true plug and play (no software drivers required) and compatibility with all major operating systems: Windows®, macOS™ and Linux®.

 

“With the rapid adoption of AV over IP, there is a corresponding demand from ProAV professionals for accommodating distribution solutions,” said Chris Scurto, Vice President of marketing and business development at ZeeVee. “ZyPer4K distributes video up to uncompressed 4K without any latency plus offers ExtremeUSB and SwitchableUSB capabilities so that USB 2.0 signals can be extended and switched separately or in conjunction with video. This complete package makes the ZyPer4K an ideal choice for any high bandwidth video and USB application.”

 

“The versatile ZyPer4K solution offers a great mix of video and USB features suitable for almost any proAV application where 4K video and USB 2.0 distribution is required,” said Glenn Antonelli, Vice President of Marketing at Icron. “Moreover, all these capabilities are delivered over commercial off-the-shelf 10G network switches, thus simplifying the installation and keeping deployment costs down.”

 

A live demonstration of the ZyPer4K solution will be on display at ZeeVee’s InfoComm booth #1761 from June 14-16 at the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC) in Orlando.

          Bluetooth EPH-W22 In-Ear Headphones, Black        
Bluetooth EPH-W22 In-Ear Headphones, Black

Bluetooth EPH-W22 In-Ear Headphones, Black

A simple design that fits comfortably in the ear. Featuring Yamaha’s newly developed 8mm (3/8”) driver for powerful bass and an exciting listening experience. The EPH-22 series is equipped with Yamaha’s newly developed 8mm (3/8”) driver unit fitted with a powerful neodymium magnet and precision tangential edge. These features give the earphones the ability to deliver a full bass sound at any volume despite their compact size. The housing, which is based on the same basic structure and uses that same materials as Yamaha’s high-end EPH models, is designed for complete audio fidelity. Just as you would expect from a musical instrument manufacturer such as Yamaha, the EPH-22 series earphones deliver total music listening pleasure. The ear buds are made of two types of silicon material—one hard and one soft. The sound passage section that uses hard silicon combines flexibility and strength through serration. It retains its shape even when inserted into the ears and fits perfectly to the shape of the ear canal. In addition to creating a comfortable fit, the ear bud also prevents deterioration of sound quality due to sound leakage. The EPH-22 series is characterized by a simple design decorated only with Yamaha’s distinctive tuning fork logo on the outer flat side of the housings. Each model is finished with an elegant and refined gloss coat, making these earphones an accessory that you will want to use and treasure for years to come. The Bluetooth functionality of the EPH-W22 lets you enjoy your music wirelessly when connected to a Bluetooth-compatible smart phone or mobile phone. In addition, compatibility with the aptX® format allows you to enjoy even higher quality audio. Basic controls like music playback and stop as well as taking phone calls can all be done wirelessly. What’s more, multi-pairing with up to eight registered devices is possible and simultaneous multi-point connections with up to two devices, so you can conveniently use various connected devices either inside or outside the home.
