3D Printing Revolution: Teen Developed Brain-Controlled Prosthetic Arm

3D printing is quickly proving that it will revolutionize the world of prosthetic limbs. Now we have one more inspiring story of a teen that has used the technology to make prosthesis cheaper and more accessible. Easton LaChappelle, a 17-year-old from Colorado, has developed new arm prosthesis with a 3D printer. The advantage lies in its cost of production, which is 160 times less expensive than other available on the market. Using free online resources, he used a 3D printer to create a fully functional prosthetic arm accompanied by a hand with the technology of robotics. An invention that has earned this... more »

Appcelerator Snaps Up API Startup Singly Pushing the DevOps Platform Normalization Curve

Getting a web app to run natively on mobile requires a good bit of graphical optimization and code editing that most developers would rather not do. An emerging San Francisco-based startup called Singly promises to simplify this chore with an abstraction layer that normalizes third party functionality across a wide range of platforms. Singly’s DataFabric solution functions as a high-level interface for third party services, including user authentication, data management, and social sharing . The platform wraps itself around the underlying APIs to deliver data portability and automated integration that enable users to shave months off their app development cycles.

FBI: We've Dismantled Anonymous

FBI: We've Dismantled Anonymous

An official with Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) says they’ve effectively dismantled Anonymous by arresting its most active members at the core of the group.  That’s the message from a report in the Huffington Post.  The FBI’s claims are based on the 2012 arrests of LulzSec members – a splinter group of Anonymous that was very active and very vocal.  Indeed, it is fair to say that the amount of high-profile devastating attacks has not been on the same scale as it once was in the recent past.  That is exactly what the FBI is counting as vindication of their... more »

There'll Be No Ubuntu Edge, But What's Next For Ubuntu Phones?

The Ubuntu Edge crowdfunding project has failed.  Canonical failed to raise the $32 million funding goal it had set for itself in just one month.  But did it fail miserably?  No, not at all.  On the contrary, Canonical managed to set a new world crowdfunding record, as it was able to raise $12,812,776 - the highest funding any crowdfunding project has ever been able to raise. The project was launched back in July 22, 2013 and Canonical set itself one month to raise its $32M funding goal.  Though the goal seemed impossible to reach, the signs were looking good at first.... more »

VMware Dominant Going into #VMworld

As VMware heads into VMworld 2013, it is in a dominant position in the virtualization market, comparable to Microsoft on the desktop in 1990 or IBM in 1970, with continuing strong growth ahead of it. And while Microsoft's Hyper-V seems to be growing faster at present and may improve its market share over the next 18 months, it and the other competitors (KVM, OVM, and Citrix XEN) will in total still only have just over 30% total market share in 18 months, according to a just-published hypervisor market report by Wikibon CTO David Floyer based on a survey of 104... more »

Data Quality : A Matter of Life or Death in Healthcare

Data Quality : A Matter of Life or Death in Healthcare

Many of the speakers at this year’s MIT Chief Development Officer Information Quality Symposium attended on behalf of companies in the healthcare industry, where data quality often makes the difference between life and death.

Next generation datacenters with all-flash for active data will require much higher performance system networks. These networks will need to be integrated into converged systems, and be completely separate from long-distance networks.

The software, hardware, and professional services markets for big data are still in formative stages, with packaged applications emerging only slowly. But the demand for solutions is sufficiently large and growing fast enough to support a number of large vendors with a variety of packaging and go-to-market approaches. Users should identify their big data starting point -- services, application platforms, or converged infrastructure -- and establish the strategic relationships they need to progress with big data investments.

Based on market conditions that we have observed over the past year and the recent public cloud revenue results of Amazon, Microsoft, Oracle, SAP, and IBM, we expect that public cloud spending will continue to accelerate rapidly, growing from $75B in 2015 to $522B by 2026 (19% CAGR). Each public cloud segment will have rapid growth rates: SaaS (19% CAGR), PaaS (33% CAGR), and IaaS (18% CAGR) during this period. How big will public cloud be? By 2026, cloud will account for nearly 50% of spending related to enterprise hardware, software, and outsourcing services.
