Australia's Attorney General Considering Heavy Handed Copyright EnforcementAustralia’s Attorney General, Senator George Brandis has foreshadowed serious changes to the nations copyright laws.

Senator Brandis says one move he’s considering is asking internet service providers – ISPs – to issue warnings to customers.

Australians are among the worst offenders when it comes to illegal downloads, Senator Brandis is also apparently considering asking ISPs to block sites where content can be illegally downloaded.

Copyright holders like film and television and music studios have long argued that it is ISPs role to prevent internet users from illegally downloading their content.

The glitch in the plan might be a landmark High Court ruling in 2012, where the court found service provider iiNet wasn’t responsible for its customers’ illegal activities :: Read the full article »»»»

Facebook Compared to a Disease… about to be curedFacebook has been called lots of things since it rise to stardom in 2006. According to 2 US researchers however, the social network is most comparable to an infectious disease.

The researchers reckon that the online behemoth is experiencing a spike, right before its decline, they also claim the social network will lose 80 per cent of users by 2017.

Two doctoral candidates in mechanical and aerospace engineering at Princeton University made their claims in a paper published online at a scientific research archive, but not yet peer-reviewed.

Facebook losing 800,000,000 user might seem like a fantasy, if history is any measure however it may just happen.

Based on the rise and fall of MySpace, John Cannarella and Joshua Spechler say that Facebook, the largest online social network in history, is set for a massive fall :: Read the full article »»»»


Windows Device Chief Killing RT Tablet OS

Posted: November 30th, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: Technoid, Technology | Tags: , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on Windows Device Chief Killing RT Tablet OS

Julie Larson-Green to Kill-off RT Tablet OSMicrosoft’s head of Devices, Julie Larson-Green has caused a stir in the tablet market, unofficially announcing that the Tech-behemoth would only be running with two – of three – operating systems for mobile devices.

Microsoft currently runs Windows Phone, RT and Windows 8 on tablets and phones. Punters are betting large on RT being the odd OS out.

RT was developed solely to take advantage of ARMs 32-bit architecture, giving devices like Surface super thinness and power efficiency.

RT is a cutdown version of Windows 8, sitting smack in the middle of Phone and 8, with more functionality than Phone but less functionality of 8.

Devices currently running Windows RT have a selection of scaled back, bundled programs – MS Office 2013 – however, it’s inherently incompatible with previous versions of Windows.

Punters it seems are flexing their purchasing power, choosing full-blown Windows 8 rather than the OEM only RT as their tablet OS :: Read the full article »»»»

Steve Ballmer’s Retirement Leaves Microsoft in an Less than Impressive Position

Posted: August 23rd, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: Technology | Tags: , , , , | Comments Off on Steve Ballmer’s Retirement Leaves Microsoft in an Less than Impressive Position

Microsoft CEOMicrosoft’s outlandish chief executive Steve Ballmer has announced he’s got his heart set on retirement. The gregarious CEO reckons he’s pensioning himself off within the coming 12 months.

It is the opinion of this blogger that Microsoft, under Ballmer’s helmsman-ship has missed many obvious opportunities, leaving the once mighty company languishing in cyber-nomans land.

Ballmer’s retirement might just open a new chapter for Microsoft, while its Windows OS is used in the vast majority of personal computers. Microsoft during Ballmer’s 13 years of control has had little impact in the fast-growing mobile device segment.

The tech-behemoth has faced a slurry of criticism for not keeping pace with this fast-evolving tech-sector, my personal criticism includes not eyeing-off it’s market correctly.

While Microsoft has battled to keep pace in development, it’s preferred market seems to have been slices of the iPhone and Android markets, leaving those – seniors, those around Ballmer’s own age – who actually love thier products virtually untouched :: Read the full article »»»»
