» A “Comprehensive” Guide to Mobile Statistics Cloud Four Blog A “Comprehensive” Guide to Mobile Statistics Table of Contents Introduction At least once a week, I see people arguing over mobile statistics. Usually, they’re not even arguing about the same thing. The arguments go something like this: List of computer magazines This is a list of magazines marketed primarily for computer and technology enthusiasts or users. The majority of these magazines cover general computer topics or several non-specific subject areas, however a few are also specialized to a certain area of computing and are listed separately. General magazines[edit] These publications appeal to a broad audience and usually include content about computer hardware and software and technology news. These magazines could also be called technology magazines because of the large amount of content about non-computer consumer electronics, such as digital audio player and mobile phones.

Rawlemon’s Spherical Solar Energy-Generating Globes Can Even Harvest Energy from Moonlight The solar energy designers at Rawlemon have created a spherical, sun-tracking glass globe that is able to concentrate sunlight (and moonlight) up to 10,000 times. The company claims that its ß.torics system is 35% more efficient than traditional dual-axis photovoltaic designs, and the fully rotational, weatherproof sphere is even capable of harvesting electricity from moonlight. The ß.torics system was invented by Barcelona-based German Architect André Broessel. He sought to create a solar system that could be embedded in the walls of buildings so that they may act as both windows and energy generators. But the project isn’t only noteworthy for its solar efficiency capabilities - the ß.torics system is designed to generate lunar energy too! The spheres are able to concentrate diffused moonlight into a steady source of energy.

Five free apps for dealing with hardware problems Although computer hardware has become something of a commodity item, there are still situations that require troubleshooting.

The report, released on Monday, found that the number of organizations running mission-critical applications in the cloud has climbed from 60 percent two years ago to 87 percent in the latest report. To do so, over half (53 percent) use two to four cloud providers, and over one quarter (26 percent) use 10 or more as enterprises embrace a multi-cloud strategy. A split also persists in the preferred cloud model, with 44 percent using or planning to implement a private cloud solution, as opposed to 37 percent for public cloud. Verizon compiled data from an October enterprise cloud customer survey, other internal data, as well as analysis from other firms, including Forrester, Gartner, and IDC to produce the report.

As a result, they don’t achieve their intended objectives. In their book, Built To Last, Jerry Porras and Jim Collins develop, based on extensive research, a framework for creating companies that continue to be viable and profitable for the long-term.

Cool Outdoor Tech Gadgets - The Official Newegg Blog Do you remember the days of giant CD books that held all of your music? The bigger and heavier the book, the more complete your collection. Could you ever have imagined that one day all of that music would fit on a handheld device that weighs under five ounces? At Newegg, we know that technology is rapidly changing the way in which we approach day-to-day activities. Uncertainty clouds US and EU companies after data decision In a decision that created legal confusion for U.S. companies, the European Court of Justice last week struck down an agreement that allowed U.S. companies to transfer personal data collected in Europe to the United States. Generally, European privacy laws do not allow organizations to move personal information to countries, like the United States, that European regulators have not deemed to have adequate privacy laws. The United States and the European Commission agreed to a set of "Safe Harbor" privacy principles in 2000 that allowed companies to commit to specific privacy protections that would be adequate to transfer data to the U.S. However, reacting to concerns about surveillance and law enforcement access to personal data following the disclosures by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden, the Court of Justice has now found that the Safe Harbor program has failed to meet the standards of protection needed to justify the free transfer of European data.

IoT analysis and commentary: O'Reilly Radar Designing at the intersection of disciplines The O'Reilly Radar Podcast: Simon King on creating holistic, integrated experiences and the importance of discipline overlap. Subscribe to the O’Reilly Radar Podcast to track the technologies and people that will shape our world in the years to come. In this week’s Radar Podcast, I chat with Simon King, design director at IDEO. Harkening back to growing up on a family farm in Michigan, King talks about technology’s growing role in agriculture and the role design is playing in agriculture innovation. ITU turns spotlight on 5G core networks ITU, a UN agency for telecommunications, created a new focus group to look at standardisation requirements of wireline networks to support 5G RANs. The network study group is within the purview of ITU’s Standardisation Sector (ITU-T), an ITU bureau, which is expected to parallel the 5G standardisation work of ITU-R (ITU’s Radiocommunication Sector). While ITU-R is briefed with coordinating international standardisation of “IMT-2020” RAN systems, ITU-T has a similar role on the wireline side.

10 things you should know about Fast IT As technologies develop and evolve, new terms (or "buzzwords" for the cynical) come to light to describe growing trends in the enterprise. "Mainframe," "personal computer," "world wide web" (anyone remember its related phrase "the information superhighway?"), "distributed computing," "big data," "outsourcing" and "cloud computing" are all examples. Some have fallen by the wayside and others remain in full force.
