Angling to develop for Google Glass? Google gives some insight If you’re looking for a taste of what it will be like to develop for Google Glass, the company posted a video demonstrating the hardware and a little bit of the API on Thursday. Timothy Jordan, a senior developer advocate at Google, gave a talk at SXSW in early March that lasted just shy of an hour and gave a look into the platform. Google Glass bears more similarity to the Web than the Android mobile operating system, so developing for it is simpler than creating an Android application. During the talk, Jordan goes over some the functionality developers can get out of the Mirror API, which allows apps to pop Timeline Cards into a user’s view, as well as show new items from services the user might be subscribed to (weather, wire services, and so forth).
A tech-savvy hospital in Boston developed a custom information-retrieval system for Google Glass, which lets ER doctors scan a QR code on the wall of each room to call up information about patients. Dr. John Halamka, CIO of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, described the system today in his blog (a cached version is here as the original link seems to be having problems): In the Emergency Department, we’ve developed a prototype of a new information system using Google Glass, a high tech pair of glasses that includes a video camera, video screen, speaker, microphone, touch pad, and motion sensor.Here’s how it works.When a clinician walks into an emergency department room, he or she looks at [a] bar code (a QR or Quick Response code) placed on the wall. ER doctors use Google Glass and QR codes to identify patients
Pourquoi est-ce que la radio n'est pas virale? En janvier, le journaliste américain Stan Alcorn publie une analyse sur le site de Digg: pourquoi le son –et a fortiori la radio– n'est pas viral sur Internet? Contrairement au texte et à l’image, contenus-rois des réseaux sociaux, les productions sonores brutes sont relativement peu échangées sur la Toile. (Non, on ne parle pas de musique). Là où pourtant les ondes affichent une santé insolente; selon Médiamétrie, 43,6 millions de Français ont écouté la radio en semaine à la fin 2013 et les podcasts sont une niche active, avec 21 millions de téléchargements par mois.

Soon our roads could be made of smart solar panels Road Surface Layer - translucent and high-strength, it is rough enough to provide great traction, yet still passes sunlight through to the solar collector cells embedded within Aaaaaand had to suspend my disbelief here. I love the idea and the potential it has, but something that is... ...sounds like wishful thinking.

MR3020 FTP Setup Setting up your LibraryBox for FTP will allow you to upload, download, and delete files from the "Shared" directory from a computer connected to the wifi signal, without having to physically interact with the LibraryBox or the USB drive. Once you have it setup, you will be able to use any FTP software to login and change the Shared files. Follow the steps below to enable FTP access on your LibraryBox. Connect to the LibraryBox SSID with your computer, and SSH into it:
Urban Computing Reveals the Hidden City In his essay “Walking in the City,” the French scholar Michel de Certeau talks about the “invisible identities of the visible.” He is talking specifically about the memories and personal narratives associated with a location. Until recently, this information was only accessible one-to-one—that is, by talking to people who had knowledge of a place. But what if that data became one-to-many, or even many-to-many, and easily accessible via some sort of street-level interface that could be accessed manually, or wirelessly using a smartphone? This is essentially the idea behind urban computing, where the city itself becomes a kind of distributed computer. The pedestrian is the moving cursor; neighborhoods, buildings, and street objects become the interface; and the smartphone is used to “click” or “tap” that interface.
Which operating system will colonise the Internet of Things? - Open Source Insider Connecting ourselves to the Internet of Things (IoT) is a process still in motion -- this we know to be true. As everything from traffic lights to fridges to cars to industrial turbines are empowered with electronic sensors and communication abilities, the "things" that make up the IoT need: a) wider penetration into society, b) an standardised set of services and protocols to operate upon, c) software developers to target IoT apps and, d) a plethora of other emerging factors too. Some industry commentators believe that Android has greater potential to provide the unifying power needed here than any other single operating system.

Android is great, but sometimes, the version you get with your phone—whether its vanilla Android or something like Samsung's TouchWiz—leaves a bit to be desired. Here's how to install a new version of Android (or ROM) on your device for an even better Android experience. What's a ROM? How to Flash a ROM to Your Android Phone
6 outils pour cloner un disque dur sous Windows et Linux Cloner c'est facile... Bon, ok, cloner un bébé, c'est déjà plus complexe mais un disque dur, c'est l'enfance de l'art... Alors bien sûr le logiciel le plus connu pour ça, est Ghost de Symantec mais au prix de 999,99 euros HT (j'déconne, je ne connais pas le prix en vrai), c'est déjà plus rentable de se mettre à cloner son petit frère artisanalement dans le garage.
Bitrot and atomic COWs: Inside “next-gen” filesystems Most people don't care much about their filesystems. But at the end of the day, the filesystem is probably the single most important part of an operating system. A kernel bug might mean the loss of whatever you're working on right now, but a filesystem bug could wipe out everything you've ever done... and it could do so in ways most people never imagine.
While I couldn't vouch for it across the board, the couple times I've transferred money, it's been nearly instant to appear in my Google Wallet account, even though it takes a few days to come out of my bank. I think that was just for a regular bank transfer, though, so I'm not sure if debit transactions would be any faster. If you're already eating the fee, it might be worth trying it out just to see if it's any faster. Use a Google Wallet Card to Withdraw Cash from Visa Gift Cards
