The Smart Lock feature allows setting screen lock to be linked to GEO location (several zones can be set), a trusted Bluetooth device, or it can determine if the device is no longer on your person.
By making programming languages less difficult to work with you increase the number of people writing programs and successively increase the number and variety of programs available.
In a previous article I described how, in order to have a true Semantic Web, we would need to have a user action to direct the program. I would like to examine some of the motivations for this point of view.
The original concept was for the system to display a number of images on a tabbed-page HTML layout. Each tab/page of images needed to be centered and allow a user to touch a thumbnail to bring up larger rendering of that image.
When talking about the Semantic Web there are a few premises one must acknowledge. One premise is that any data exchange on the internet is originally initiated by a human. There is no information retrieval without a request for that information and that request can be directly tied to a human request for the information.
VR (Virtual Reality) is not a new concept and it has seen its share of failures and even long spans of time in virtual limbo. The idea and reality of VR have, for some time, been separated by a chasm of ergonomics, hardware requirements, and consumer acceptance.
Headlines like "Devastating Heartbleed Flaw Was Used in Hospital Hack" and others tend to make one wonder if anybody is paying attention. The hackers are letting the security firms do the grunt work of finding flaws and then all they have to do is troll for sites don't update.
Coinciding with the cascading avalanche of information on the disaster of Flight MH17, there is an influx of malware, false stories, and spam, permeating the internet.
In computing , and life in general, we find ourselves often hearing new phrases that tend to evoke certain connotations. These Buzzwords are generally created for the benefit of marketing and brand recognition but can also be used to label campaigns or causes. The creation of Buzzwords have become so prolific that there are even games devoted to it.
The Heartbleed code flaw, that was discovered using newly developed encryption testing tools, is a major code bug with far reaching implications. According to recent 'Honey Pot' reports the SSL code flaw was already being exploited by hackers.
Woman who have recently graduated or who are currently enrolled in the computer science field, woman seeking to enter or further enhance their career in open source software programming, or even woman who do not want to code but simply wish to contribute to the open source community
A term, which you may have heard of, in the IT arena that is gaining a lot of momentum, is SDLC, Systems development life-cycle. Like many other IT terms its use is more of a vernacular acronym in the IT community then a pragmatic approach to system's development.
Advancement in technology should be viewed with the same preciseness that is used with troop movement. Before we advance we need confident information on what lies ahead, what is on our flank, what is behind us, and what the impact will be.
I decided to write a small program using jQuery/CSS. This is similar to my other programs, in that js plays a major part in the structure.
Ember.js offers a good framework for JSON and JQuery in a fairly slick MVC with a good VIEWS API binding that will eliminate a lot of the grunt work of building JS applications.
Cisco report says the number of smartphones, tablets, laptops and internet-capable phones will exceed the number of humans in 2013. One can only imagine the power if an individual or group had control over a portion of those devices.
By observing Newton's law we can conclude that the efforts of the quantum dawn tests and the other security risk assessments undertaken across internet connected sites have been significant but have not yet matched the effort of the attackers.
The success of DDoS attacks depends on the filtering done on the client zombies. It is this filtering that we can take advantage of and exploit. If the BOT net cannot connect to the target then it can't flood it with requests.
Most of the information I'm about to go over is available from a number of sources on the Internet but this article may help anyone navigating the often contradictory information you will encounter in doing research on buying from China.
During my journey I noticed a number of units from China that not only seemed to match my product concept but also offered a significant savings.
Give me any programming task or project and I'll show you 50 ways to program it.
"The problem can allow an untrusted Java applet to escalate its privileges, without requiring code signing. Oracle Java 7 update 10 and earlier are affected, US-CERT said.
If that information is contextually and semantically received universally then the circle will be complete. What if we discover that the most universally accepted language is machine code.
Have i mentioned that Gimp is an awesome image program? If not, then let me take this opportunity to do so.
I started using Gimp 7 years ago and I'm still learning new features and ways to use Gimp. Recently, on a project, I was tasked with creating large, enhanced photo images. When I say large, some of these images are 10 megabytes. The significant size was required because the images had to be able to be viewed at almost 3 feet in length and remain sharp and clear.
All data in a computer is electronic. What you see on the screen or what is printed or even the sounds you hear are all electronic responses to electronic input.
We can imagine the CPU, Central Processing Unit, as a master Conductor orchestrating a symphony of instruments in a myriad of frequencies that produces a collective energy critically tuned to a specific flow of musical notes.
Browscap.ini is a data file that holds the information on all mobile devices out there and their capabilities. It is a standard for detecting mobile devices so web content can be tailored to their unique displays and functions.
In its most pure definition a computer is any device or object that receive information in and then will present an output based on that information.
Solving the polyglot dilemma is not going to be with changing resources it is going to be with complimenting your existing resources.
Buzzwords are great for marketing and brand recognition or to get the masses all-a-buzz with the latest "makes it sound good" phrase but it has no place in defining what a software package can or can't do.
It looks as if Flash is the forgotten soul in the mobile arena. Like a shunned outcast, the multimedia platform has slowly been left out and finally replaced. With the release of the Android ‘jelly bean’ OS the widely used Adobe product is in a downward spiral toward desktop only applications and other non-mobile markets.
A coding template is a design that has replaceable or re-definable parts that when changed does not effect overall structure. In programming, and in computers generally, there are numerous duplications. There are events, checks, layouts, and other parts of computing that do not change. These parts are often put into templates that allow for differing outputs while maintaining the same general methods to accomplish the code or program execution.
When troubleshooting code I try to follow a set path in order to quickly isolate the issue. The problem is that I’m just as guilty as others at trying to shortcut the process. One major trap I fall into is the time consuming ‘wandering’ into certain parts of the code and encountering a road block by not staying on the original path. In doing this I often end up chasing problems that are caused by other problems that need to be addressed first. With that being said I have developed a good instinct for finding problem code.
"The Semantic Web provides a common framework that allows data to be shared and reused across application, enterprise, and community boundaries. It is a collaborative effort led by W3C with participation from a large number of researchers and industrial partners.
Lately there has been a lot of buzz about 'Do Not Track'. For those that don't know, Do not Track or DNT is a little message your browser tells each website before it starts loading on your computer screen.
In the evolution of mobile technology internet connectivity has had a roller coaster ride. Not just the actual connecting but the browsing and searching for information. Over the years I’ve noticed a tug-a-war going on between those creating internet sites that are mobile friendly and mobile OS’s trying to render content and deliver internet browsing in a mobile format.
Web programming can be both exciting and foreboding at the same time. Most programmers spend their time chasing bugs in other code and platforms while tying together newly created code with existing code content. While it is good to be excellent in one particular thing, often, in programming you have to work with and consider several platforms to integrate what you’re doing.
The groups on this site are divided into three sections which are tagged General Programming Groups, Projects and Positions Wanted, and Projects and Positions. When you create your group you must select the desired tag for your group
