Intel’s Silicon and Laser Hook-Up Means Speedier Data Transfer, Reliant on Fiber


BY Addy Dugdale

Imagine a world where it takes just one second to download a terabyte of data. Well, that world just got a little bit closer, with Intel‘s breakthrough, known as silicon photonics, in data transfer methods. It works using a combination of lasers (wooh! Lasers!! And all that!!!) and chips to convert data into light signals, send them up a fiber optic cable, then convert the light signals back into its original data form. So does this really mean high-definition movie downloads in less than a second from iTunes? That, my dears, is a question for the FCC and the network providers, I’m afraid.

Is this the kind of technology which will benefit you, the consumer, or is it something whose goodness will only be felt by they, the companies? Well, it’s a bit of both, actually. First of all, however, there is no doubting the accuracy of the device–Intel claims that over 27 hours, one petabyte of data was transferred with zero error. Sigue leyendo

Project will ‘virtually raise’ the Titanic with 3D map


Emma Woollacott

A team is to make the most detailed survey ever of the Titanic, producing a 3D map of the ship.

RMS Titanic – the grandly-titled Salvor-In-Possession of the Titanic, has teamed up with Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and the Waitt Institute for the mission.

Robot cameras will film sonar and video images of the ship and the debris field surrounding it, starting next month. When the imaging is complete, a 3D ‘map will be created and shown off by RMS Titanic’s parent company, Premier Exhibitions.

“The significance and scope of this mission, the team we’ve assembled to carry it out, and the breakthrough technologies being deployed will give people the opportunity to experience Titanic like never before,” says Chris Davino, Premier Exhibition’s CEO and president of RMS Titanic. Sigue leyendo

Passing The Holy Milestone: How To Meet Deadlines


For too many projects, there comes a time when every action taken, every decision and sacrifice made, is spurred on by pressure to finish. Tempers seem to shrink along with the available days, talk about “high standards” gives way to “good enough,” and people realize that deadlines are aptly named. During the last-minute crunch, someone may well wonder, how did it come to this? Could it have been prevented?

Every Web project has deadlines. But not every designer or developer deals with them the same way.

[Offtopic: by the way, did you already get your copy of the Smashing Book?]

What Causes A Deadline To Break?

Because a deadline marks the end of a project, everyone involved in the project must understand the deadline’s role. Most projects follow a schedule or have an estimated date by which they must be completed. The concept is simple then: when the work takes longer than expected, deadlines get missed. Sigue leyendo

Social and Location-Based Media Growing, LinkedIn Now Worth $2 Billion


Location-Based Apps Used by Only 4% of U.S. Online Adults

Location-based marketing has been all the rage lately, yet a recent report from marketing firm Forrester reveals that — although growing — only 4% of online adults use any kind of location-based service in the U.S., and a mere 1% check in using one of these services at least once per week. By contrast, more than 11% of online adults have used Twitter (Twitter), and an estimated 28% have signed up for Facebook (Facebook). Sigue leyendo

Scaling Corporate SM Checklist


rsz_right_turnYou’ve successfully passed through “phase 1″ of your company’s social media evolution where just a few expert voices represented your brand online.  Now you are handing over the keys to a larger, more representative group of speakers.  How can you make sure that this proliferation increases, not fragments, your impact online?  How do you prevent someone going off the reservation?  Through guardrails, governance, and training (oh my!).  Here’s a checklist from basic fundamental to advanced degree… Sigue leyendo

Non-Profits Know the Secrets of Social Media


Posted by Lauren Dugan

Non-Profits are the most connected sector when it comes to social media. Not multi-billion-dollar corporations, not universities, not the governments of the world. At least those are the findings of a joint venture between Dr. Nora Ganim Barnes, Ph.D., and Eric Mattson, CEO of Financial Insite Inc. The survey looked at the social media adoption of the top 200 charities and non-profits in the U.S., and its findings indicate that non-profits really have a grasp of what people like – and what they don’t like – online.

Of the 200 charities surveyed, 97 percent are using social media. Breaking down the numbers further, the findings show that 93 percent of charities use Facebook, 87 percent use Twitter, and 65 percent have a blog. And 93 percent of the charities examined reported regular social media monitoring. Sigue leyendo

Safari Introduces Extensions with Version 5.0.1


Written by Mike Melanson

Apple announced today the release of its latest version of Web browser Safari. Version 5.0.1 introduces Safari extensions as well as an extensions gallery, bringing the browser into sync with other leading browsers, such as Firefox, Chrome.

Extensions were initially added with the June release of Safari 5, but primarily for developer testing. This latest release brings extensions to the forefront, with the introduction of the extensions gallery.

The new version of Safari debuts with extensions by Twitter, The New York Times, Amazon and Bing, among others. The extensions bring real-time functionality and integration to the Web browsing experience. The Twitter extension, for example, will notify you of mentions of the website your currently looking at and allow you to tweet about that site with an automatically created short link. The Bing extension adds search, translation and other functionality directly to any page – simply highlight text and the extension goes from there.

According to the release, extensions are built with HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript and are “sandboxed”, or kept segregated from other parts of the user’s filesystem to ensure that “they can’t access information on a user’s system or communicate with websites aside from those specified by the developer”.
