According to a new report from Navigant Research, worldwide sales of electric drive and electric-assisted commercial vehicles are expected to grow…

    The new desktop oriented WhatsApp has now been released as a companion web app for Chrome (not a stand-alone). WhatsApp web version mirrors your conversations and messages from your mobile device, and requires you to scan a QR code on your computer via your phone in order to get started. What this means is that if your phone isn’t working (dead, off, etc), WhatsApp won’t work for you on the desktop. Although it would be nice if the experience wasn’t so tied to your phone, this is still a very welcome addition for WhatsApp fans looking to use their computer’s full-sized keyboards to…

    The Apple TV’s YouTube app is no longer a mess. An update that was just released has brought with it a revamped interface, recommendations, and better subscription handling. Most importantly, the new app finally gives you access to YouTube’s entire library of content — with a catch. You’ll have to sit through ads for some videos. That’s not a big price to pay, but it’s probably worth training your thumb to skip through ads as you do on every other platform.

    Today’s question: How are invisible columns treated with DESC, INFO and the GUI equivalent? Super quick, an INVISIBLE column is one that the user doesn’t see. They won’t be able to access it unless they know about it. Security by obscurity? No. Tom Kyte shows a few examples of the features usefulness, especially when adding columns to a table and not breaking any SELECT * FROMs in your code.

  • Multi-threaded replication with MySQL 5.6: Use GTIDs!

    Stephane Combaudon
    29 Jan 2015 | 12:00 am
    MySQL 5.6 allows you to execute replicated events in parallel as long as data is split across several databases. This feature is named “Multi-Threaded Slave” (MTS) and it is easy to enable by setting slave_parallel_workers to a > 1 value. However if you decide to use MTS without GTIDs, you may run into annoying issues. Let’s look at two of them.Skipping replication errorsWhen replication stops with an error, a frequent approach is to “ignore now and fix later.” This means you will run SET GLOBAL sql_slave_skip_counter=1 to be able to restart replication as…

Dave's stated goal is support for browser-based applications, something near and dear to my heart. nodeStorage provides three important things that every app needs: In Dave's words: nodeStorage builds on three technologies: Node.js for the runtime, Twitter for identity and Amazon…
  • Re-imagining Decentralized and Distributed

    21 Jan 2015 | 1:59 pm
    Summary: I'm re-thinking how I use the words centralized, decentralized, and distributed to describe systems. I teach a course at BYU every year called "Large Scale Distributed Systems." As I discuss distributed systems with the class, there is always a bit of a terminology issue I have. It has to do with how we think of distributed systems vs. decentralized systems. You often see this diagram floating around the net: This always feels like an attempt is to place the ideas of centralized, decentralized, and distributed computing on some kind of continuum. In his PhD dissertation, Extending…
  • Rethinking Ruleset Registration in KRL

    21 Jan 2015 | 10:15 am
    Summary: A ruleset registry has been part of KRL from the start. This proposal would deprecate ruleset registries in favor of simply using URLs. Updated January 21, 2014, 11:15am to add additional unresolved issues. Since it's inception, KRL was meant to be a language of the Internet. This was something of an experiment. Firstly, as an Internet language, all processing is in the cloud. That is, it's PaaS-only model; you can't run it from the command line. Secondly, programs would be identified by URL. This has, for the most part, worked pretty well. But as I move to a model where multiple KRL…

    Summary: O'Reilly Media is hosting a Software Architecture Conference March 17-19 in Boston. This blog post is my proposal. The Internet is decentralized, heterarchical, and interoperable. Unfortunately, today's Internet of Things is none of those. We might better call it the "CompuServe of Things." What architecture should the Internet of Things embrace? This talk will discuss the problems with the current model for the Internet of Things and present the lessons we've learned from architecting an Internet of Things product that is more in keeping with the fundamental architectural principles…

Fuse, the open-source connected-car platform I'm working on is stack of technologies that ultimately provide the total user experience. Here's one way to look at that stack: From bottom to top, the components of the stack are: The device, a CalAmp LMU-3030, is plugged into the vehicle and has a cellular data connection.

  • Facebook: Fourth Quarter Stellar or So-So?

    Jeff Clark

    The king of social media, Facebook, reported its earnings for 4Q14, showing a nearly 60% increase in revenue from 2013 to 2014. Its quarterly revenue also achieved nearly a 50% increase year over year. But financials aren’t all about revenue. The company’s GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) income from operations for 4Q14 was unchanged compared with the same quarter a year earlier. The yearly total was up significantly, but the graphical picture has less of an appearance of steady growth than it did a year ago. Most social networks are struggling to find a profitable and…

  • Insider Threat Protection. People, Process and Technology

    Chris Bunn
    9 Jan 2015 | 2:31 am
    When it comes to protecting against the Insider Threat, too often overlooked (often critically) is how people and process should be set up to mitigate the risk from employee behavior. Such behavior that often causes or aides security breaches. The notion that IT security is a combination of people, process and technology is nothing new. The triangle is typically invoked to claim there is more to consider than just a tool - it’s not just the tool (the technology), but it is the process of implementing it, and the people involved. Despite arguments to rebalance this ‘golden…

However, regardless of the best intention from management, gaining top to bottom commitment is difficult to the point of being nigh on impossible. Humans are the weakest link Research conducted by IS Decisions found that over 70% of office workers don’t know who to report a security breach to. Fewer than a third knew who to contact within their company if they suspected their computer or another device had been subject to a security breach, such as…

Monitoring user activity is vital in helping mitigate increasing insider threats, implement CERT best practices and get compliant. However it is important to stress that without enhanced user access controls and restrictions or the ability to filter and alert on specific access events, the monitoring has limited use. This post outlines how UserLock 8 (a unique enterprise solution) can provide organizations with the controls, insight and response…

  • Carriers, Apple, Google, Microsoft... Fighting Over Slices of the Pie

    3 Feb 2014 | 6:30 am
    Much of the dialog over net neutrality seems rather dated. This is understandable, since the debate has been going on since last century. The January 14th Federal Appeal Court decision in favor of the Internet access providers gave those companies (apparently) a degree of latitude to selectively block or prioritize edge provider services. We know that they want to do this, even though they might be coy about admitting it. Verizon, the plaintiff in the recent appeal case, issued a statement saying that nothing much will change as a result of this decision. We all expect Verizon and the other…
  • Network Neutrality, Victory or Disappointment? | Part 2

    31 Jan 2014 | 6:30 am
    In my last blog, I discussed the debate surrounding the true definition of open and unfettered Internet, and the different interpretations various groups and individuals have on the matter. In this posting, we continue the discussion. The U.S. government has not enacted legislation to actually define and require Internet openness or to specify what level of non-openness is acceptable, if any. So openness is a concept without legal definition or backing, which means that individual opinions vary on what constitutes fettering and what doesn’t. And attempts by the FCC to fill this gap with the…

    Outsourcing rules are changing and you need to be aware of these changesImage Credit: Mark Hillary Back in the golden days of outsourcing, CIOs could just pick up the phone, get in contact with the head of their outsourcing contractor in India or China, and scale their team up or down as conditions required.

    Offshoring As We’ve Known It May Be DeadImage Credit: Vitor Lima Once upon a time, offshoring was the answer to every CIOs dreams. It offered a great way to significantly grow the IT department while at the same time reducing the total costs of running the department. What make it even better was that somebody else had to deal with the real-world issues of managing people and the person with the CIO job could just focus on results. However, that magic never seemed to work out. CIOs are only now starting to learn to deal with reality of life after the death of offshoring… Why The…

The people who use stock exchanges, stock traders, banks, brokers, etc. move very fast. The phrase “time is money” was invented to describe these people.

    Eric Raisters
    17 Dec 2014 | 1:27 pm
    Since the mid-1990s, SHA-1 digital certificates have been the standard used across the Internet to verify user and device identities. SHA-1 certificates have existed for years on nearly every server and client computing device, providing the foundation for trusted communications between user devices. But now, this fundamental trust relationship has changed. With recent advances in computing power, the bad guys have finally figured out how to weaken the SHA-1 hashing algorithm—which means that it can no longer be relied on as a standard. A breached SHA-1 certificate platform can lead to all…

    Many years ago Gartner introduced their technology Hype Cycle, which maps visibility against maturity for new technology. The Hype Cycle in essence states that many new technologies get a large amount of visibility early in their maturity cycle. The visibility and enthusiasm drops significantly when reality sets in: technologies early in their maturity cycle will have low adoption rates. The vast majority of customers of technology are conservative in their choices, especially if this new technology is not (yet) fundamental to this customer’s business.

When an event is triggered, PagerDuty makes magic to notify the right person or team that something is wrong. However, ensuring that the message makes it out of our pipeline to you isn’t so simple.

    Job Seeking has become a stage of life in itself- it takes skill and guile to survive sometimes snoopy employers, judgmental recruiters and competitive peers who make it harder to demand what you truly deserve and get an opportunity that truly challenges you. Unfortunately, job seekers aren’t great at taking the leap to the next stage. The going may be tough- where one wrong move can give you an indelible label and one smooth sentence can take you over to the bright side- but there are some things that can make it even tougher to get out of this most undesirable of situations, and…

    We know how terribly hard it can be to focus on your work when you aren’t in office. When you’re away from office, your boss and your colleagues, it’s harder than ever to concentrate and keep the faith that what you do, matters. Productivity hacks are one thing, but the freedom of being in the comfort of your own home, wearing, eating and doing whatever you want whenever you want to, offers pure, unadulterated distractions which are a whole other ballgame of wanton wastage, one that can throw you off of yours. Not only are freelancing and work-from-home becoming…

  • Facebook Latest Outage: Really??!

    Roy Goffer
    27 Jan 2015 | 1:50 pm
    Facebook users worldwide were not able to access some of the company’s services today for about an hour. The outage affected Facebook’s 1.3 billion users and the 300 million on Facebook’s photo-sharing website Instagram. Facebook users have experienced several outages in the past few months, which shows us that a huge IT budget is no guarantee for smooth service availability. Why it happens? Even the best IT teams are not well-equipped to manage change. Facebook is able to hire the brightest minds in the IT landscape, but that’s still not an assurance that no critical mistakes…

    The velocity of change is something we all have to deal with, like it or not. Whenever changes take place, there is the potential for mistakes or issues. Unfortunately, there is nothing consistent about the business environment, except change. That’s why it’s imperative that IT infrastructures be responsive to this change, to meet the challenges head-on before they become problems. Easier said than done? Not quite! There are a few things we know with complete certainty. One of them is that change is always taking place. With that in mind, continuous integration and agile…

    Some startling data protection statistics have just been released by EMC in its Global Data Protection Index. According to the findings, enterprises have lost $1.7 trillion in 2014 as a result of downtime costs and data loss. These figures represent as much as half of Germany’s Gross Domestic Product. The numbers are deeply concerning to companies that depend heavily on their IT infrastructures, with as much 71% of companies not confident about their ability to recover after disruptions to their infrastructure. Over the past two years, data loss has spiked by 400%. How Downtime &…

    2014 is over and the new year is already upon us, so why not take a look at how your IT strategy stacks up next to your competitors? An interesting fact which has come to light is that small businesses (at least in the USA) have adopted cloud technologies to a larger extent than medium and large sized enterprises, although adoption rates indicate that this gap will be closed at some point in the future. Perhaps this could present an opportunity for your business to gain market share against competitors who have been slow to update their IT capabilities. Rackspace has produced a fantastic…

  • Is cloud computing a more environmentally friendly choice?

    Phil Bickerton
    2 Nov 2014 | 5:08 pm
    Many companies are moving part or all of their systems to the cloud in order to gain from the benefits this type of system provides, such as cost savings and flexibility. However, cloud computing is also a much more environmentally friendly choice, when compared to running servers from within your individual business. Research suggests that for a large enterprise, making the switch would actually save 30,000 metric tonnes of CO2 within five years, which is the equivalent to almost 6,000 cars off the road! Take some time to think about how many businesses there are in Australia and across the…
