My Top 5 Gadgets

My Top 5 Gadgets | MIS500 Term3 | Scoop.it

 

In no particular order, these are the top gadgets on my list.

 

1. Solus Watch. I use it when I run, or when I workout. This watch measures heart rate and calorie consumption. This can also be used to monitor speed, distance and step counter. You can also keep a record of your past exercise done, because this can keep 4 weeks worth of data

 

2. Blackberry Curve. I bought it 2 years ago, when it was not yet as popular as it is today. Features I like about it includes its ability to connect via use of Wifi, BBM - its messaging feature, exclusive for BB users. You can email, store documents using this. Basically, I chose it because of its functionality.

 

3. Acer Aspire Notebook. My one month old netbook. I bought it to replace a heavy Compaq laptop which makes my back ache, whenever I need to bring it. This is sensationally designed to deliver amazing HD visual experiences. Anytime, anywhere connectivity plus an eco-friendly platform round out this netbook and make it ideal for your highly mobile digital lifestyle. Plus, this is really handy.

 

4. Ipod Shuffle. My five year old running buddy. This keeps me entertained while running. You can just clip it on your clothing, and you don’t have to worry that it might drop or slip. Basically, it goes anywhere and with anything.

 

5. Canon DSLR camera. This is actually my brother’s. I borrow it every time I get to travel to new places. I’m still thinking of buying my own. It’s just that, I already built a rapport with the camera.

Cloud Computing

"What is Cloud Computing? Expedient offers a simple guide to understanding public clouds (aka external clouds), private clouds, and hybrid clouds. The benefits of cloud computing are also explained."

 

Cloud computing is a technology that uses the internet and central remote servers to maintain data and applications. This allows consumers and businesses to use applications without installation and access their personal files at any computer with internet access. This technology allows for much more efficient computing by centralizing storage, memory, processing and bandwidth. A simple example of cloud computing is Yahoo email, Gmail, or Hotmail etc.

 

Cloud computing is broken down into three segments: application, storage and connectivity. Each segment serves a different purpose and offers different products for businesses and individuals around the world.

 

Advantages

-Allows servers and storage devices to be shared and utilization be increased

-Applications can be easily migrated from one physical server to another

-Centralization of infrastructure in locations with lower costs

-Peak-load capacity increases

-Utilization and efficiency improvements for systems

-Improved reliabilityPerformance is monitored

-Maintenance easier, does not need to be installed on each user's computer and can be accessed from different places.

 

Disadvantages

-Loss of control over certain sensitive data

-Complexity of security is greatly increased when data is distributed over a wider area or greater number of devices

-User access to security audit logs may be difficult or impossible.

Daniel Pink on the surprising science of motivation

http://www.ted.com Career analyst Dan Pink examines the puzzle of motivation, starting with a fact that social scientists know but most managers don't: Traditional rewards aren't always as effective as we think. Listen for illuminating stories -- and maybe, a way forward.

 

"If you want people to perform better, you reward them, right? Bonuses, commissions, their own reality show. Incentivize them. … But that’s not happening here. You’ve got an incentive designed to sharpen thinking and accelerate creativity, and it does just the opposite. It dulls thinking and blocks creativity.”-Danel Pink

Innovative Technologies Review: Augmented Reality

Discover the world of Augmented Reality with the Philadelphia Science Festival and Science Interpreter Shoshanna Pokras from The Franklin Institute.

 

Augmented reality (AR) is a live, direct or indirect, view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data. It is related to a more general concept called mediated reality, in which a view of reality is modified (possibly even diminished rather than augmented) by a computer. As a result, the technology functions by enhancing one’s current perception of reality. By contrast, virtual reality replaces the real world with a simulated one.

Innovative Technologies Review: Explaining Cloud Computing

This video explains cloud computing. It is produced and presented by Christopher Barnatt, author of ExplainingComputers.com, and Associate Professor of Compu...

 

Cloud computing is the delivery of computing as a service rather than a product, whereby shared resources, software, and information are provided to computers and other devices as a utility over a network.

 

Cloud computing entrusts, typically centralized, services with your data, software, and computation on a published application programming interface (API) over a network. It has a lot of overlap with software as a service (SaaS).

 

End users access cloud based applications through a web browser or a light weight desktop or mobile app while the business software and data are stored on servers at a remote location. Cloud application providers strive to give the same or better service and performance than if the software programs were installed locally on end-user computers.

 

At the foundation of cloud computing is the broader concept of infrastructure convergence and shared services.This type of data centre environment allows enterprises to get their applications up and running faster, with easier manageability and less maintenance, and enables IT to more rapidly adjust IT resources (such as servers, storage, and networking) to meet fluctuating and unpredictable business demand.

The Photoshop Effect

The Photoshop Effect | MIS500 Term3 | Scoop.it
Edit, organize, store, and share photos - all online. It's digital imaging wherever you are.

 

As I was trying to figure out how to do my Lightroom / Photoshop exercise, I came across this website which allowed me to edit / process my pics online. Its like a storeage where you can upload your pictures, create albums of it then, one of its features, is you can actually edit your pictures. Adjust the white-balance, lighting, midtones, the basics are available. I havent explored the whole site yet, so I havent seen any advanced surprise.

 

I tried editing one of my pictures, for the before-and-after effect. See for yourself if this gets a passing mark. For me, bias aside, I did something that is not really bad for a starter. :)

 

By the way, that's me and my newly married kuya.

What is a Blog?

ttp://chris.pirillo.com - http://live.pirillo.com - I've been online since 1992, but I've only been building this business since I started Lockergnome in 1996. I've evolved since the beginning, and opened up Lockergnome to others to blog and make money for themselves, as well. So, what's the secret to successful blogging? 

 

A blog is a personal journal published on the internet consisting of discrete entries known as posts displayed in reverse chronological order so the most recent post appears first. Blogs provide commentary on a particular subject; others function as more personal online diaries; others function more as online brand advertising of a particular individual or company. A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs.

 

Blogs are usually the work of a single individual, occasionally of a small group, and often are themed on a single subject. Most good quality blogs are interactive, allowing visitors to leave comments and even message each other and it is this interactivity that distinguishes them from other static websites. Blogging can be seen as a form of social networking. Indeed, bloggers do not only produce content to post on their blogs but also build social relations with their readers and other bloggers.

 

Some blogs I read :

www.ourawesomeplanet.com

www.professionalheckler.com

www.chuvaness.com

www.isabellamagalona.com

www.chappycallanta.wordpress.com

What is Web 2.0?

It's one of the biggest buzzwords out there, but what exactly does it mean? Andy Gutmans of Zend defines Web 2.0 and explains how it's changing the face of the internet...

 

Web 2.0 is referred to as this idea of the "Web as a platform". The concept was instead of thinking of the Web as a place where browsers viewed data through small windows on the readers' screens, the Web was actually the platform that allowed people to get things done. To break it down into a single definition that is simple, Web 2.0 is a system in which online users become participants rather than mere viewers. Some of the most popular examples are: Gmail, Google Maps, Flickr, Del.icio.us, Tecnorati, Digg..

 

What are the key advantages of Web2.0?

a. Information can be pulled from a number of different places

b. Ccan be personalized to meet the needs of a single user

c. Allow the mass population to communicate with each other and spread ideas rather than receiving their information from a single authority.

d. Information will flow freely, and people can express their ideas without fear of repression

 

Disadvantages of Web 2.0

a. Dependence

b. Security risk

c. Losing information

d. Sharing of Copyrighted information

Simon Sinek: How great leaders inspire action

http://www.ted.com Simon Sinek presents a simple but powerful model for how leaders inspire action, starting with a golden circle and the question "Why?" His examples include Apple, Martin Luther King, and the Wright brothers -- and as a counterpoint Tivo, which (until a recent court victory that tripled its stock price) appeared to be struggling.

 

On analyzing the various great leaders of the world, from Apple to Martin Luther King Jr., Simon Sinek concludes that they all communicate in the same way, a way distinct from their less remarkable counterparts. Great communicators lead not with what it is that they produce, but with their philosophies -- in Apple's example, the company sells its design and artfulness as much as its actual devices. Regardless of how much we've adapted to deal with information logically, human behavioris still driven by a different thought process entirely, both in how we communicate with others and how we motivate ourselves.

Bill Gates on Expertise: 10,000 Hours and a Lifetime of Fanaticism

Complete Premium video at: http://fora.tv/series/92y_politics

 

Bill Gates responds to Malcolm Gladwell's theory that it takes 10,000 hours of deliberate practctice to master a skill. Apart from acknowledging luck, timing and an open mind, Gates suggests that a successful person survives many cycles of attrition to make it to 10,000 hours of experience. "You do have to be lucky enough, but also fanatical enough to keep going," explains Gates.

 

Bill Gates III is chairman of Microsoft Corporation, the worldwide leader in software, services and solutions that help people and businesses realize their full potential. In July 2008, Gates transitioned out of a day-to-day role in the company to spend more time on his global health and education work at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Gates continues to serve as Microsoft's chairman and an advisor on key development projects....
