Trimming the Fat: How to Evaluate Your Business Partnerships

Jim Ivers is the Chief Security Strategist for Covata. For any industry, partnerships are the lifeblood to a successful and long-lasting business. Like any meaningful relationship, strong partnerships are not built overnight, nor do they happen by chance. They are the result of hard work, constant evaluation, and the confidence to terminate the ones that are unproductive or toxic. I once had an industry analysts tell me that “today’s partnerships are tomorrow’s unsupported features,” so the market does view your partners and the strength of those relationships seriously. In fact, it’s wise to think of your partners as an extension of the reputation you have built for your brand. You never want to find yourself in defense of your name because partners aren’t presenting themselves in the right light. Take inventory The first step in the process is to make an honest inventory of your partnerships by asking yourself a series of three qualifying questions: Is the vendor/partner still providing value to your business? Since engagement, has the vendor/partner maintained performance expectations? Do you trust your vendor/partner to protect your information? If you’ve answered ‘no’ to any of these questions, it may be time to cut the cord, particularly if you have expressed your dissatisfaction with the partner in the past.

Is the Motorola Shamu the next Nexus phone?

Android Police’s Liam Spradlin seems fairly confident that a Motorola device codenamed Shamu is in the works, though as yet there’s no concept imagery or any sneak peeks at the design — the main piece of evidence is an entry in Google’s issue tracker system which has been captured for posterity. “We are confident that Shamu is a real device under active development, and fairly confident that it is a contender for the Nexus program, but are just slightly less confident about its specs, simply due to the information at our disposal,” says Spradlin.

5 dangerous things you should let your kids do

At TED U, Gever Tulley, founder of the Tinkering School, spells out 5 dangerous things you should let your kids do — and why a little danger is good for both kids and grownups.

Quantum gas goes below absolute zero

Schneider and his colleagues reached such sub-absolute-zero temperatures with an ultracold quantum gas made up of potassium atoms. Using lasers and magnetic fields, they kept the individual atoms in a lattice arrangement. At positive temperatures, the atoms repel, making the configuration stable. The team then quickly adjusted the magnetic fields, causing the atoms to attract rather than repel each other. “This suddenly shifts the atoms from their most stable, lowest-energy state to the highest possible energy state, before they can react,” says Schneider. “It’s like walking through a valley, then instantly finding yourself on the mountain peak.”

11 Of The Oldest Living Things In The World

For nearly a decade, photographer Rachel Sussman has been traveling the globe in search of the world's oldest living things. From the Mojave Desert to the Australian Outback to Greenland's icy expanses, she captures portraits of life forms so relentless they've managed to survive eons of planetary change. An 80,000-year-old colony of aspen trees in Utah and a 43,600-year-old self-propagating shrub in Tasmania rank amongst Sussman's unlikely subjects, just two of the many plants, fungi and invertebrates catalogued by her lens.

Flux Capacitor charger turns any ride into a DeLorean time machine - CNET

The flux capacitor charger started life earlier this year as an April Fool's joke from ThinkGeek. As sometimes happens with fictional products, fan demand encouraged ThinkGeek to make it real. The product's unveiling is timed to mesh with San Diego Comic-Con, though it won't be available to order until September. The joke product came with a $39.99 price, but the real item will only put you back $24.99.

ASUS has the world's fastest WiFi router... for now

Hey look, a new router from ASUS and, apparently, it is super, super fast. According to the Taiwanese company, its RT-AC87 is "the world's first" with Wave 2 features, which bring better reliability, major speed boosts and overall performance improvements to the 802.11ac generation of WiFi routers -- one that, by the way, has yet to break through to the mainstream . Thanks to this novel technology, ASUS' RT-AC87 can beam out 5 GHz signals with up to 1.73 Gbps speeds, making it a great option for someone who has a lot of different 802.11ac-equipped devices under a single roof. People that, you know, love watching stuff on Netflix, like to livestream games to the internet or just have too many connected things happening all at once. The RT-AC87 will be available "shortly" for $270, though it'll be limited to North America. For the time being, ASUS can enjoy having the speediest router in town, at least until D-Link, Netgear, Belkin and the rest of them show up to the party.

Quantum bounce could make black holes explode

There is one important question left unanswered- What exact causes the two layer to become one? It is temperature who makes the difference of two layers. It is also temperature who makes the two layers to merge into one. When the temperatures of the two layers become equal, the anchors layer vanishes into the underneath layer. When do the two temperatures become equal? Only when both arrive to absolute zero. There is no other solutions. The upper layer's temperature mirrors the lower layer's temperature, just as the anchors' inward dynamics is caused by the outward dynamics from the lower layer. When the lower's temperature arrives to absolute zero, the upper's dynamics disappears with the lower's dynamics and its temperature arrives to absolute zero, too. So only at absolute zero, the upper layer superimposes into the lower layer. In brief, at temperature of absolute zero, the whole universe becomes the initial singularity, which is ready To burst. Regarding the whole universe, the cosmic temperature of absolute zero yields instantaneously two equal extremely high temperatures in the positive and the negative of the initial singularity.

The Pirate Bay Launches A Mobile Website For Torrenting From Your Smartphone | TechCrunch

Torrent Freak also reported that The Mobile Bay is one of many new projects in the pipeline.

10 Apps That Will Help You Sleep Better

If you're serious about regulating your sleep, Pzizz may be worth the download. This app claims to be the solution to insomnia. Due to its scientifically proven techniques that combine NLP (neurolinguistic programming), binaural beats and sound effects, the app is on the pricier side. With several sounds available, this software will mix a new playlist every time, so you never hear the same tune twice.

The secret of Minecraft

Was it a conscious decision? A strategic bit of design? I don’t know. Maybe Markus Persson always intended to create an in-game tutorial but never got around to it. If so: lucky him, and lucky us, because by requiring the secret knowledge to be stored, and sought, elsewhere, he laid the foundation for Minecraft ’s true form.

Snaps To Riches: The Rise Of Snapchat Celebrities

Thanks for this illuminating article Ellen. It is pretty amazing how quickly one trend replaces another, in this case Snapchat overtaking Vine. It makes you wonder where we will be in another year’s time. There’s no doubt that if you are trying to market to a youth audience you need to be constantly evolving your offering to keep pace and the likes of Disney, by hiring online celebrities like Shaun McBride and Nicolas Megalis have got their strategy right. What intrigues me is why Youtube doesn’t have more of a mobile presence as it seems ready made for it. It has the cache with the youth market, never seems to become unpopular or corporate, and with a few tweaks it could launch a powerful alternative to the Snapchat, Vine and others. Perhaps its the unique feeling users get when a new app breaks, feeling part of its growth and development. wrestling with teething problems and being the first to properly master the new technology. I guess you just can’t fake that, so kudos to the programmers, adopters and stars making it happen! Thanks for a great story.

Ten Thousand Years

Ray cats, cute, but clearly not a scientists idea. 3 liters per year over 10,000 years for a gene that had no selective advantage. There’s an excellent chance that the ray cats would be either extinct (that could only take tens of years to achieve), or the genetic modification lost. Throw in some selective disadvantage–cats glow when they’re exposed to a little radiation, which helps the coyotes and raccoons see them better and reduces their fitness because they’re worse ambush predators, which wipes out the ray cats. Or, maybe we get ray cats who adapt to living near radioactivity (many existing gene pathways repair damage from ionizing radiation) and thrive. Or, maybe Earth’s atmosphere changes to allow in more cosmic radiation, and now ray cats everywhere glow. Ah, and when our civilization crashes, non-ray cats will thrive in our post-apocalyptic ruins, interbreed with ray cats, and dilute glow-gene right out of the population. Unless we exterminated all cats now, and reintroduced ray cats everywhere…. If you believe in evolution, a living organism isn’t the best way of creating an immutable warning system that would endure thousands of generations.

Why Most Product Managers Suck

The App I Used to Break Into My Neighbor’s Home | Threat Level | WIRED

Such services also enable jerks like me to steal your keys any time they get a moment alone with them. Leave your ring of cut-brass secrets unattended on your desk at work, at a bar table while you buy another round, or in a hotel room, and any stranger—or friend—can upload your keys to their online collection. The trick is far easier than having them copied at a hardware store. KeyMe says it will even duplicate keys marked “do not duplicate,” including some high-security keys sold by Medeco, Mul-T-lock and Schlage. Parking valets suddenly require a ludicrous level of trust: KeyMe already allows some car keys to be scanned and mail-ordered; KeysDuplicated says that feature is on the way.

OS X Yosemite preview: the Mac gets a major makeover

You'll notice it as soon as you restart your machine: OS X Yosemite takes many, many cues from iOS. There's the dock, for starters, which features redesigned, flatter-looking icons for all of Apple's built-in apps. The menu bar now sits flat with the rest of the desktop -- not that it ever really got in the way. Throughout, too, Apple has moved to a new, less condensed font, and it's also adopted some of the same icons used in iOS (check out the "share" button in Finder, for example). Even the "stoplights" for closing, minimizing and maximizing windows are flat -- no 3D shading here. Oh, speaking of the stoplights, the green button now allows you to bring windows to full-screen. You should get used to it pretty quickly.

Stingray, the fake cell phone tower cops and carriers use to track your every move | ExtremeTech

A stingray is a false cell phone tower that can force phones in a geographical area to connect to it. Once these devices connect, the stingray can be used to either hone in on the target’s location or, with some models, actually eavesdrop on conversations, text messages, and web browser activity. It’s not clear how much the police cooperate with the cell phone carriers on this — in at least some cases, the police have gone to carriers with requests for information, while in others they seem to have taken a brute-force approach, dumping the data of every single user on a given tower and then sorting it to find the parties they’re interested in tracking. Stingrays can be used to force the phone to give up its user details, making it fairly easy for the police to match devices and account holders.

Is our tech making the world too complex? – Samuel Arbesman – Aeon

I'll make another analogy to try and illustrate this point. Imagine we as scientists understood the human neuron perfectly, so that we could simulate is 100% accurately. Imagine too that we had the 3D map of a person's brain, with all the neurons inside it. With a powerful-enough computer, we would be able to simulate that person's brain using only our knowledge of the neuron. We would also still have absolutely no idea whatsoever how it worked collectively, how 113 billion stupid neurons turns into an intelligent personality. Most of the amazing behaviour is probably an emergent property of relatively mechanical and logical work on the part of the individual neuron (if we encounter this kind of mental labor in our modern life, we usually delegate it to a computer; the beauty of the brain is that its grassroots computation occurs on the molecular level). So the brain is not capable of understanding the brain, at least in the sense of understanding how a car's engine works. The brain is great at making models, noticing patterns, making inferences. We love our brains for this. I'd rather write poetry then add numbers all day.

A Middle-School Cheating Scandal

One afternoon in the spring of 2006, Damany Lewis, a math teacher at Parks Middle School, in Atlanta, unlocked the room where standardized tests were kept. It was the week before his students took the Criterion-Referenced Competency Test, which determined whether schools in Georgia had met federal standards of achievement. The tests were wrapped in cellophane and stacked in cardboard boxes. Lewis, a slim twenty-nine-year-old with dreadlocks, contemplated opening the test with scissors, but he thought his cut marks would be too obvious. Instead, he left the school, walked to the corner store, and bought a razor blade. When he returned, he slit open the cellophane and gently pulled a test book from its wrapping. Then he used a lighter to warm the razor, which he wedged under the adhesive sealing the booklet, and peeled back the tab.

Watch iOS 8′s Latest Beta Transcribe Voice To Text In Near-Real Time | TechCrunch

Apple’s iOS 8 beta 4 just hit the interwebs today, and among the new features found therein, there’s a cool new visualization of the iOS dictation feature (seen in the MacRumors video above) that shows your words being transcribed almost in real-time as you say them. It’s a feature that previously appeared in Siri, but it’s new to the dictate option found in Messages and other places with text entry, and it’s pretty darn cool.

See the evolution of Batman's costume in film and TV

Batman turns 75 this month, so it's altogether appropriate that director Zack Snyder should rock the internet with his new take on the Caped Crusader and the iconic Batmobile . Ben Affleck looks every bit the brooding superhero in the new photo, and the Batmobile already promises to be the beast of a machine fans have been trained to expect since at least 1989. Still, 75 years is a long time, and Batman has had a particularly storied history on TV and in cinema — with plenty of hits and misses along the way. Taking a look back at just a handful of those classic looks should prepare us for what Snyder has in store for 2016. Now we only wonder what all the other superheroes in Batman vs. Superman will look like.

Facebook results keep surging on mobile ad growth $FB

Facebook Inc. on Wednesday put to rest any lingering doubts about its ability to transform its business into a mobile-advertising juggernaut.

About 62% of Facebook's ad revenue now comes from advertising on mobile devices, which this year is expected to eclipse newspapers, magazines and radio in the U.S. for the...

The Black Entrepreneur Trying to End Startup Racism Is Almost Out of Cash

Because of its broad-based approach, D.C. Challenge has been successful in attracting at least one potential participant who is not African-American: Erik Kugler, the white co-owner of a local bike shop called Bicycle Space. Kugler, 49, seems to be the team’s most promising prospect of the four groups they met on Wednesday (the remaining three comprised African-Americans); he confidently describes the research he has already done on Kickstarter and Indiegogo, and says he is also considering both platforms to host his campaign for custom, high-end bicycles. Interestingly, Kugler found D.C. Challenge appealing precisely because of its connection to minorities.

L.A.'s Skid Row Through the Eyes of Pimps, Prostitutes, Dealers and Dope Fiends (VIDEO)

The July Kamikaze Exhibits at downtown studio gallery PØST are a staple of the summer season for art lovers attracted to places and practices that are still somewhat off the beaten path. Although the neighborhood around this industrial side-alley venue has seen exponential changes as the Arts District moniker attracted fancier denizens, its doggedly independent character has remained intact — and another full month of its now-infamous, artist-curated, one-night shows is in the offing. On 31 consecutive nights, the space hosts 31 different solo or group shows organized by artists who are given free rein to be as minimal or ambitious as they want to be, as long as they can manage to install, open and de-install in the course of a single day. The results are every bit as eclectic and insane as that sounds. While the curators aren't showing their own work, their organizing efforts surely provide insight into their creative practices. The diverse crew of artists in charge includes installation/performance artists JEFF&GORDON (July 1), painter Jay Erker (July 8), sculptor and installation artist Margaret Honda (July 11), painter and video artist Annie Wharton (July 14), illustrator and collagist Sarajo Frieden (July 16), sculptor Eric Johnson (July 20) and cosmic interdisciplinary conceptualist Dani Tull (July 28).

Elon Musk Has A Radically Different Idea Of How Commercial Planes Should Take Off And Land

Aircraft should be vertical takeoff and landing. Kind of like a Harrier, except that it's better to move the fan than it is to duct the air. I think the Harrier's a great plane, but I think there's a real opportunity to have a vertical take-off and landing supersonic jet. You'd use an electric motor to drive a fan. Traditional jet aircraft are mostly fan driven — like when you see a high-bypass jet engine on a triple-7, it looks huge. That’s because most of the propulsion is really coming from the fan. So there’s some value to having ducts, but it’s actually more efficient to have an open fan if you just care about efficiency per mile. But you can go faster if you have a ducted situation.

Overswipe’s Photo App Makes It Safe To Hand Over Your Phone | TechCrunch

Hughes notes that there’s nothing stopping a serious snooper from exiting back to your homescreen, then launching the native Photos app for themselves, but this app is not designed for that use case. Instead, when people reach the last photo in the collection you’ve shared, they generally just hand back the phone. (Although if you’re paranoid, a passcode option is available).

Apple Blatantly Ignored The Basic Rules Of Retail When Opening Stores

Those rectilinear wooden tables didn’t appear until the second generation (or vintage, as the versions are known as internally); originally, the desktop and laptop computers sat on kidney-shaped white tables, which worked well for the candy-colored iMacs but not when the product line turned white," Lacks writes. Having flexibility helped perfect the Apple store model.

Here's Why 'The Internet Of Things' Will Be Huge, And Drive Tremendous Value For People And Businesses

Estimates for Internet of Things or IoT market value are massive, since by definition the IoT will be a diffuse layer of devices, sensors, and computing power that overlays entire consumer, business-to-business, and government industries. The IoT will account for an increasingly huge number of connections:  1.9 billion devices today, and 9 billion by 2018.  That year,  it will be roughly equal to the number of smartphones, smart TVs, tablets, wearable computers, and PCs combined .

Matt Ridley on the five best ways to help poor countries

I don't trust the UN to place itself at the forefront of being the world's problem solvers. This is a money hungry and anti-capitalism organization that spends taxpayer's money on worthless projects.  For example, in UN run schools in the Gaza, courtesy of US taxpayer's dollars, we're finding out with the current Israeli HAMAS conflict these UN schools have aligned themselves with HAMAS by storing their weapons in the schools. These same schools serve as emergency shelters and the UN is placing Gaza's residents in harm's way knowing the Israeli's will attack these schools. The UN has a long history of being anti-Israeli. I think the UN should get out of the way and just leave town. There are many private organizations that can do a better job in helping the world's poor nations.

What’s Up With That: Why Does Sleeping In Just Make Me More Tired? | Science | WIRED

If everything’s just fine with your sleep zone but you still can’t get under the eight hour mark, you might need to go see a doctor. It could be a symptom of narcolepsy, which makes it hard for your body to regulate fatigue and makes you sleep in more. Sleep apnea is a potentially more serious disorder where you stop breathing while you slumber. It’s typically caused by an obstructed airway, which leads to snoring. However, in a small number of sufferers, the brain simply stops telling the muscles to breathe, starving the brain and eventually forcing a gasping response. In addition to all the other terrifying aspects of this disease, it’s not doing your quality of sleep any favors.

Elon Musk’s Answer To Stephen Colbert’s Vision Of Ambient Wireless Charging: “We’ll Do It” | TechCrunch

More interesting though are what Musk thinks the future of earth-based flight might hold: He talked about how aircraft should have vertical take-off and landing, for instance, which would be more efficient in terms of space, and which would also allow for electric-powered aircraft. There’s another great reason I’d like to see this, aside from the obvious benefits – we want our aircraft to resemble those in sci-fi movies, which almost universally take off and land vertically.

This Computerized Exoskeleton Could Help Millions of People Walk Again | Business | WIRED

But by far the biggest milestone came just a few weeks ago, when the ReWalk became the first and only exoskeleton approved by the FDA for personal use. The ReWalk isn’t the first device of its kind. Other devices like the Ekso and the Indego are currently being used in rehab and research centers around the world, and just last month, a paraplegic man used a mind-controlled exoskeleton developed at Duke University to make the first kick at the World Cup. But the ReWalk is the first device of its kind that paraplegic people in the U.S. can actually buy—albeit for the hefty price of $69,500—using it to walk wherever and whenever they want. For Laureano, it is, quite literally, a dream come true.
