Electronic lab notebook Electronic lab notebooks are a fairly new technology and offer many benefits to the user as well as organizations. For example: electronic lab notebooks are easier to search upon, simplify data copying and backups, support collaboration amongst many users.[1] ELNs can have fine-grained access controls, and can be more secure than their paper counterparts.[2] They also allow the direct incorporation of data from instruments, replacing the practice of printing out data to be stapled into a paper notebook.[3] Types[edit] ELNs can be divided into two categories: "Specific ELNs" contain features designed to work with specific applications, scientific instrumentation or data types." Solutions range from specialized programs designed from the ground up for use as an ELN, to modifications or direct use of more general programs. ELN's come in many different forms.

Indoor navigation on your smartphone, using the Earth’s magnetic field — just like a pigeon (Credit: IndoorAtlas) An indoor positioning system (IPS) that uses the Earth’s magnetic field to determine your location is accurate between 0.1 and 2 meters, according to IndoorAtlas, a company spun off by the University of Oulu in Finland. The system is based on the fact that every square inch of Earth has a magnetic field that is modified by man-made concrete and steel structures. Creating a map is simple: drawing out a floor plan, then walk around a location so that the magnetometer can build up a map, using apps provided by IndoorAtlas. The IndoorAtlas solution is a low-cost alternative to conventional IPS systems, which require you to blanket a venue with thousands of WiFi or Bluetooth base stations. Possible uses: airports, hospitals, underground parking lots, subways, shopping malls, and miners.

Mobile 3.0 arrives: How Qualcomm just showed us the future of the cell phone (and why iPhone sucks for this new contextual age) The world just changed yesterday. You probably didn’t notice. But I guarantee strategists at Apple, Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft, and Google did. What happened? Yesterday the Mobile 3.0 world arrived. We’ve seen lots of precursors. But in the future your mobile device, whether it be something you hold in your hand like a smart phone, or wear on your face, like Google Glasses, will know a hell of a lot about you. How? Well, Qualcomm just shipped the developer SDK, called Gimbal. This SDK talks to every sensor in your phone. But now, thanks to this SDK your smart phone will start to make sense of the data. Today I was talking with Roland Ligtenberg, product developer at Qualcomm Labs. See, if you do all this collection and analysis in software there is a battery cost. Qualcomm wouldn’t comment, but Roland told me that if you did all this in hardware there would be a lot less battery cost. Want to see what other use cases are coming? Which brings me to why Apple sucks. A new age just arrived.

Indoor Google Maps help you make your way through museums In the past, navigating through museums could be an art form in and of itself. But Google Maps for Android has got wayfinding inside your favorite museums down to a science. With indoor maps and walking directions for U.S. museums now available on your Android phone or tablet, you can plan your route from exhibit to exhibit, identifying points of interest along the way, including between floors. Today, we’ve added more than twenty popular U.S. museums to our collection of over 10,000 indoor maps that we launched in November: the de Young Museum in San Francisco, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Cincinnati Museum Center, the Indianapolis Museum of Art, the American Museum of Natural History and 17 Smithsonian museums—plus a zoo! "My location" in the American Museum of Natural History, New York City To access the floor plans, simply open Google Maps on your Android phone or tablet and zoom in on the museum of interest.

Rethinking Mobile First I wrote the Mobile First Web Second blog post a few years ago. In that post, I talked about apps that were designed to be used on mobile primarily with the web as a companion. There have been a number of startups that have taken that approach and done well with it. Most notably Instagram, and also our portfolio company Foursquare. It has become a bit of a orthodoxy among the consumer social startup crowd to do mobile first and web second. But is it the right thing to do? Vibhu makes some excellent points: All in all, mobile service apps turn out to be a horrible place to close viral loops and win at the retention game. and You have an entirely different onboarding story on the web. I use my phone more than anything else. Vibhu also takes a stance against the ad-supported, privacy challenged, free consumer app world. But I don't want to focus on business model in this post. But just because something is hard doesn't mean you shouldn't try to do it. So do I disagree with Vibhu?

labtrack Google Maps Indoor disponible au Royaume-Uni ! C’est à la fin de l’année dernière que Google a déployé une mise à jour importante pour Google Maps sur Android, une mise à jour qui permettait aux utilisateurs d’explorer l’intérieur des bâtiments et donc de retrouver leur chemin en toute circonstance. Plutôt sympathique, évidemment, mais Google Maps Indoor n’était disponible qu’aux Etats-Unis jusqu’à présent et nous ne pouvions donc pas en profiter en Europe. Pas sympa, mais cela vient tout juste de changer puisque la technologie est désormais disponible au Royaume-Uni. Et au train où vont les choses, nous devrions donc pouvoir en profiter très prochainement chez nous aussi. Alors bien sûr, Google Maps Indoor ne fonctionne pas avec tous les bâtiments, n’espérez donc pas pouvoir vous promener dans l’appartement de votre gentille voisine aux courbes de rêve, ce sont uniquement certaines localisations qui ont été modélisées par Google. Le plus souvent, il s’agit d’ailleurs d’aéroports, de gares ou de boutiques. Via
