Don Mattrick took the stage before a cheering and excited audience in an auditorium on Microsoft campus. In order to launch, a commercial was run that spoke to the intentions of Xbox as it moves into the future using the cloud, personalization, and further connectivity of community and social--it’s obvious that Kinect, Xbox Live, and connectivity will lead the day across streaming media. “Team Xbox is on a new mission: build a new Xbox that will combine a new media experience for a new generation,” he says. It’s name: the Xbox One. Behold the Xbox One The Xbox for the new generation will become... more »
Yahoo! has been extremely busy with social media announcements of late. Though it promised to not screw up Tumblr, it would appear that promise didn't extend to Flickr. Or maybe, because they messed with Flickr so much, what Marissa Mayer actually meant to say is that Yahoo's 'team' is too tired to do anything that might damage Tumblr. So why are people complaining about Flickr so much? Because it sucks. There's the design for one thing. Though it looks good, setting out to help people with all their spotlight hogging needs, the list of gripes is virtually endless. It seems the vast majority... more »
Microsoft is set to unveil its next generation gaming console previously dubbed as Durango. There are many rumors regarding the big reveal, and in just a few hours, everything will be clarified - hopefully, unless Microsoft decides to do a Sony and just reveal a controller and talk about how awesome the non-existent device is.

Now that Tableau's cash flow has increased after a successful debut at the NYSE, the data visualization company is expected to have the ability to build out its enterprise solutions and generate even more revenue. According to Wikibon analyst Jeff Kelly, Tableau is seen as more of a toy than a tool, so the IPO money raised will be used to build out its enterprise capabilities as part of a broader strategy. This means better security, enhanced self-service offerings to add more management controls, and also more promotion for the brand. But if you ask Tableau, the company is already well... more »

It’s been eight years since Microsoft launched the Xbox 360. Obviously that product has been a massive success for a company that is not widely known as a consumer company. Today we’ll hear what’s next as the company is set to launch its next generational console. We’ve postulated and curated rumors throughout the past year or so, it’s a popular topic - so there’s certainly a lot of built-up anticipation. It will be interesting because in the past Microsoft has publicly done some things wrong (as what happened in Japan) with the Xbox and many other things right. UPDATE - Here's the... more »
The security of industrial control systems is a fairly hot topic of conversation these days, with the assumption being that it leaves a lot to be desired. Acknowledging that the security of critical is a potential weak point in the country's defenses, researchers have come up with a way of making these sensitive hacker targets a lot less vulnerable. How did they do it? Why, they simply have the control systems police themselves. Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a system that enables networked devices to detect any suspicious or erratic behavior that could indicate a security breach, and... more »
Guess you’ve already heard that Yahoo! has reached an agreement to acquire Tumblr, the blogging syndication tool for $1.1 billion. Upon hearing the news, more than a few Tumblr users were quick to go on panic mode thinking Yahoo will end up screwing Tumblr the way it's screwed up so many services its bought. This was in spite of CEO Marissa Mayer's statement on on Tumblr that users need not worry as the service will continue to operate independently and that Tumblr CEO David Karp would remain as CEO even after it has been acquired. Still, even with Mayer's assurances, can... more »
Updated with full video, see below. On today's SiliconANGLE Live NewsDesk Show, (see embed feed below or visit youtube.com/siliconangle to watch on-demand), we learn that Butterfly Labs has finally begun to ship its long awaited ASIC Bitcoin Miners. Imagine being told about something great that you want, and then told about delay after delay on a pre-order you made some 10 months ago. That's the messy story of Butterfly Labs over the last year. Originally, it had promised four different equipment configurations: 5 GH/s Bitcoin Miner - Jalapeno 25 GH/s Bitcoin Miner - "Little Single" 50 GH/S Bitcoin Miner - "Single" 1,500 GH/s Bitcoin Miner -... more »
Updated with full video - see below. On today's SiliconANGLE Live NewsDesk Show, (see embed feed below or visit youtube.com/siliconangle to watch on-demand), we discuss how Orchestrate.io just received $3 million to crunch all kinds of data in the cloud. Antony Falco, co-founder of Basho Technologies, has been around his fair share of databases. Specifically, he identified an inherent structural problem with using multiple databases. Think of it like cement walls: Keeping data isolated inside any one database prevents companies from making discoveries across multiple data sets. Fluidity of analyzing the data wasn't present. Earlier this year Falco founded Orchestrate.io to address... more »
