      We all are quite familiar with the term responsive lay out or a responsive website. Now it’s time to discover a whole new dimension these layouts have tailored. Doing marketing online such as email campaigns, link building, updating content and social media marketing all are good tactics and certainly improve your search engine ranking as well as visitor. The problem is these tactics are going to fall short at one point i.e. if you don’t have a responsive layout and not targeting smart devices. I have few facts and stats to legitimize my opinion.   Figures for Mobile Usage To…

  • How teachers can best use TED Talks in class, from the perspective of a student

    TED Guest Author

    What happens when a teacher mixes Madame Bovary and a TED Talk? Good things, actually. Photo: iStockphoto By Olivia Cucinotta My high school English class had just finished reading Madame Bovary, and we were all confused. (For those of you who have not read it, please skip to paragraph two. Spoiler alert!) Emma Bovary, a listless housewife in search of the passionate love she’s read about in books, has many sordid affairs, falls deeply into debt and kills herself by swallowing arsenic, and her ever-faithful and terribly dull husband Charles dies a while later of a broken heart, and their…
  • Orphans of the narrative: Bosnian photographer Ziyah Gafić documents the aftermath of war

    22 Aug 2014 | 8:30 am
    Bosnian photojournalist Ziyah Gafić photographs the aftermath of conflict. (Watch his TED Talk, “Everyday objects, tragic histories.”) In his most recent book, Quest for Identity, he catalogs the belongings of Bosnia’s genocide victims, everyday objects like keys, books, combs and glasses that were exhumed from mass graves. The objects are still being used to identify the bodies from this two-decade-old conflict. Only 12 when the Bosnian War began, the Sarajevo native has spent the last 15 years turning his lens on conflicts around the world as a way of coming to terms with…

A while back, we told you about a big initiative underway in the TED office: Project Cleans. Essentially, we are taking each and every one of our 1,800+ talk video files and stripping them of the text and add-ons that were originally baked in, re-encoding the video, and saving the “clean” files in a new media back-end. Cleaning up these files is incredibly tedious — but it’s absolutely necessary, so…

    14 Aug 2014 | 12:58 pm
    Actors often complain about late residuals checks, although SAG-AFTRA has cut processing delays lately. But few stories compare to the battle waged by Alex Doe (a pseudonym), a voice actor who was diagnosed with cancer in 2012 and endured a 3-1/2-year residuals runaround from Warner Bros. and SAG-AFTRA that ultimately  threatened Doe's health insurance.(Residuals are royalties that are paid to actors, writers, directors and musicians when movies and TV shows are rerun or are released in other media such as DVD or the Internet. They're not small potatoes: residuals can amount to 40…

    Two new Bluetooth speakers offer a great reason to jet on over to Kickstarter.The NudeAudio Super-M ($99, campaign ending on August 15) offers great sound in a package thin enough to slip in a back jeans pocket. During my recent visit to the company’s South of Market offices, a head-to-head comparison showed that the unit delivered deeper bass and higher volumes without loss of fidelity than the Jambox Mini and was more rugged.NudeAudio is the same company that offers the delightful Move S, Move M (which I reviewed last year) and Move L speakers and the Studio 5 Lightning Dock with…
  • How Do We Know Driverless Cars Are Safe? Google Says ‘Trust Us’

    1 Jul 2014 | 4:19 pm
    Driverless cars are on the road now – Google’s fleet has logged about 700,000 miles of autonomous driving – and the California DMV will be issuing regulations in a matter of weeks allowing self-driving cars to be sold to the public, possibly setting the regulatory pattern for the rest of the country (video). Google has predicted 2017 for first commercial availability, while Nissan and Mercedes say it will be 2020. The cars are highly complex systems whose sheer quantity of software surely exceeds the hundred million lines of source code in today’s non-autonomous vehicles. They weigh…
  • 2030 May Be The Year They’ll Take Your Driver's License Away

    18 Jun 2014 | 6:34 pm
    I was stuck in traffic yesterday, which I didn’t really mind because I have a fun little yellow convertible, and I was thinking about Uber ($17 billion! – that’s the company’s valuation, not the price of a ride) and Google’s driverless cars (development cost unknown), and I decided it was time to connect the dots: once a car learns to drive, there’s no need to own it and there’s no need for a driver. That’s because the car can come when called, take you to your destination, then go off and pick up someone else. That sounds great and I’m hardly the first to connect those…

    Flickr Staff Pre Marissa Mayer Flickr Staff Today Look at the two screenshots above. I took the first one in April of 2012, a few months before Marissa Mayer became CEO of Yahoo. The second one I took earlier today. Between pre-Mayer 2012 and today, Flickr’s staff has grown from 39 people working on Flickr to 109. About half of the 39 working on Flickr in 2012 are no longer on the team, which means that over 80% of the new, much larger team has been built since Mayer took over at Yahoo. After years of layoffs, CEO neglect, and lackluster product development, Flickr is back in a big way,…
  • 10 Things Google Should Consider in Launching a Standalone Photo Sharing Service

    Thomas Hawk
    1 Aug 2014 | 6:10 pm
    Google used to have a standalone photo sharing service. It was called Picasa. I never really liked it. It wasn’t a very social site. I thought Flickr was a lot better. Today’s news out of Bloomberg is that Google is looking to spin off Google Photos from Google+. Maybe it’s true, maybe it’s not. You never know. The timing of Friday afternoon stories and leaks always makes you wonder. Usually when companies want to push something they release it more like Tuesday mornings or make a big deal about it at I/O or something. Whatever the case, photos has been one of the…

    I’ve been playing around with Nik Software’s new Analog Efex Pro 2 photo processing software (brought to you by the good folks at Google) all weekend long and I’m super impressed. The purist film photographers out there are probably going to hate this new software, but for you digital photographers who dig an analog look and feel, you are going to love this. I shot film exclusively for about 15 years before switching to digital in the early 2000s.

    What UltraViolet has become today is a surprise to those who created it. That’s according to Mitch Singer, the former chief digital strategy officer of Sony Pictures Entertainment and current president of the Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem (DECE), the cross-industry consortium behind UltraViolet. “I think the consumer ultimately has to decide what they want to do with the content, and what we’re finding with UltraViolet is a majority are streaming, and very few are downloading,” Singer said, speaking Aug. 27 during a panel about the future of TV content.

    Sony Pictures' The Amazing Spider-Man 2 swung to an easy No. 1 debut on all three national home video charts for the week ended Aug. 24. The sequel — which earned $202.9 million in U.S. theaters — bumped Lionsgate’s Divergent to the No. 2 spot on all three charts, where it had been No. 1 for the previous two weeks. According to Nielsen data, Divergent in its third week in stores sold just 15.3% as many copies as Amazing Spider-Man 2.

    It won’t be disc or broadcast that drives consumer adoption of 4K Ultra-HD content, but instead streaming services and improved Internet technology, according to a new report. U.S. consumer broadband speeds have improved, with average residential connection speeds topping 10 Mbps, making a majority of American broadband households capable of streaming 4K, according to a report from The Diffusion Group (TDG). That combined with improved video streaming technologies will make streaming services like Netflix the main driver of 4K content, the report reads. "Only a few years ago the…

Thanks for listening. Katie wrote about her experience of Twitter without men, and about #UnfollowAMan, here. If you like our show, please subscribe to us on iTunes.

    Here’s a great story about finding yourself in somebody else’s photos. Today Facebook has access to my timeline on Moves (which they bought), which means that potentially they know where/when I was for the last six month with a good degree of precision. They also have access to billions of geotagged photos. Cross referencing this information Facebook could easily generate a timeline of photos taken around me. And this is with today’s technology. There all all kind of privacy issues to discuss, yet there are quite exciting possibilities with photography. Just ahead.

  • Life after Aperture

    Paolo Valdemarin
    30 Jun 2014 | 2:42 am
    It has been quite evident for a while that Apple had little love left for Aperture, but now it’s official: the photo editing software will be retired. I’m sure that Photos, Apple’s new photo management app, will be nice and perfectly integrated in Apple’s ecosystem, but most likely it won’t have the kind of professional tools I need. Which leaves me with just one possibility: move to Adobe Lightroom. I have many friends who love Lightroom, and recently I have given up and started paying for Adobe’s subscription plan, so technically I already have…

    4 Jun 2014 | 2:50 pm
    Have you been thinking about cutting your pay-TV cord? Kind of scary to think about, isn’t it?  If you were born anytime after the mid-seventies, you’ve probably spent your entire life with pay-TV. It’s become a habit – something you rarely even think about. It’s just always there. And, yet, now there is something about it that is bothering you. It may be the time you spend (or waste) watching it. It may be the cost that just keeps growing, and you are now questioning the value of what you are getting for what you are paying. Perhaps you resent having to…
  • Spotify Music Streaming: The Unofficial Guide

    4 Jun 2014 | 2:50 pm
    Some artists are outraged at what they see are paltry amounts which are being paid to them by Spotify. Spotify, along with its competitors is a paid service called "streaming music". You start it up, tell it what song/artist you want to listen to, and you start listening. Every time someone listens to a song, the artist in question gets paid by Spotify. Spotify gets their cut, so they make something too. A win-win, everybody's happy, right? Well, not quite. For a start, it doesn't stop people from illegally pirating music. If someone is determined not to pay for music, then a paid…

The New York hotel learned a very hard -- and very public -- lesson about customer service and social media this week. It all started with what hotel owner, Chris Wagoner, insists was a joke. As part of the hotel's policy, customers could be fined $500 for posting negative reviews online. The money would be deducted from wedding and event deposits, and would be kept unless the review was removed. The policy, of course, is ridiculous, and after it went…

  • Apple's Huge Glass Cube In NYC Has Now Been Granted A Patent (APPL)

    James Cook
    28 Aug 2014 | 6:47 am
    Apple has been granted a U.S. patent for the iconic cube design of its flagship New York store, 9to5Mac reports. The patent is for the design of the 32-foot tall above-ground glass cube element of Apple's Fifth Avenue store in Manhattan. The self-supporting glass cube is completely free of structural steel. A 2011 redesign of the cube reduced the number of glass panels from 90 to just 13.

  • You Can Now Play One Of The Greatest Games Of All Time, 'Bioshock,' On Your iPhone And iPad

    "Bioshock," one of the most highly regarded games of the last decade, has finally arrived on iPhone and iPad. The original "Bioshock," first released in 2007, was praised for its engaging narrative and its beautifully eerie underwater setting of Rapture, a utopia turned horrifying nightmare. The first-person shooter thrusts you into the 1960's world of cold-hearted objectivist Andrew Ryan, the man responsible for Rapture's creation. When your hero first enters the city, you learn that the citizens of Rapture have since devolved, like the environment itself, which is now teeming with…

    This new build contains a lot of fine tuning: performance improvements, bug fixes, and adoption of the new 500 fix licence. A major change is the adoption of the 500 fix licence. From now on, the 1000 fix licence will be replaced with the 500 fix licence on the Buy fixes page. Existing 1000 fix licences continue to work as before and are still "worth" 1000 fixes. Performance has been improved by minimising the number of times bliss reads data from music files.

    I'm going to make the first change to bliss licensing since we launched. From the next release, which I expect to make available on 19th August, the 1000 fix licence will change to 500 fixes. The cost of the licence, £10, will stay the same. I took this decision because, over time, costs of running the business and project have risen (such is inflation) and we need to keep revenues rising to meet that. I had been considering a number of options, such as simply increasing all licence costs. However, rather than increase costs for all customers, I wanted to see if there was some "wasteage"…
  • Replacing underscores with spaces in music file paths

    bliss's default file organisation patterns replace whitespace with underscores. The reason for this is simple: it's how I like it. replacing spaces with underscores helps with scripting and command line control of your music files, and as I am a Linux user and command line enthusiast this works for me. However, not everyone is this... weird... and to many the aesthetic appearance of their filenames matter more. I can't claim that using underscores is any more beautiful than spaces; I recognise the opposite is the case and to many underscores may appear downright ugly. While preserving spaces…

    Bad things keep happening at inconvenient times for radio. Whether it’s untimely deaths (Whitney Houston and Clarence Clemons both died on Saturday nights), or last weekend’s earthquake in Napa, radio’s inability to provide coverage when these emergencies occur – in either pop culture or real life – stands out.  Twitter continues to be first, usually as accurate, and certainly more dependable than what radio (and TV) can provide. While radio applauded itself in some of the trades yesterday about its earthquake coverage over the weekend, the fact is that many news/newstalk radio…
