  • A chat with Microsoft's CEO: why Apple and Google haven't won yet

    The Verge - Thu, Jul 10, 2014 4:26 PM EDT

    Satya Nadella has been CEO of Microsoft for five months, and he's made it clear he intends to change and re-focus the software behemoth as it navigates the next generation of technological change. To mark the closing of Microsoft's fiscal year, Nadella released a long, detailed memo laying out his grand vision for the future of Microsoft. He talked about the importance of mobile and the cloud, the end of Microsoft's focus on devices and services, and laid the foundation for big changes in Redmond. We had a few questions for Nadella after we read the memo, so I gave him a call to talk about what the future of Microsoft looks like under its new CEO.

  • HTC One (M8) sales reportedly slowing

    BGR.com - Thu, Jul 10, 2014 4:20 PM EDT

    HTC finally managed to turn things around in the second quarter as its cost-cutting efforts managed to yield a slight unaudited profit of $75 million. Revenue continued to slide despite supposedly solid sales of the company’s flagship HTC One (M8) smartphone, however, and things could get even worse moving forward. According to new claims, sales of HTC’s latest hero phone are already slowing down. Despite the muted reception Samsung’s Galaxy S5 has received, stiff competition among top Android smartphones is apparently causing HTC One (M8) sales to “fade.” This according to Canaccord Genuity analyst Mike Walkley (via CNET), who failed to elaborate. Walkley regularly checks with carrier retail locations in an effort to gauge nationwide smartphone sales. The good news is that More »HTC One (M8) sales reportedly slowing

  • Beijing Security Conference Offers $10,000 Bounty for Tesla Hack

    The Atlantic Wire - Thu, Jul 10, 2014 4:16 PM EDT

    The Symposium on Security for Asia Network (SyScan), a security conference in Beijing, is asking attendees to try their hand at hacking into a Tesla car. The conference will be full of security experts and if one of them succeeds at cracking Tesla's code, they will walk away with $10,000. The conference takes place next Wednesday and Thursday, so participants have time to prepare their hacking tactics.  John Pescatore, director for emerging security trends at The SANS Institute, told Fox News, "They have a good security reputation mainly because nobody has pounded on them yet."  More »Beijing Security Conference Offers $10,000 Bounty for Tesla Hack

  • A British Author Turned Down A Lifetime Achievement Award For His Writing Because It Was Sponsored By Amazon

    Business Insider - Thu, Jul 10, 2014 4:13 PM EDT

    YouTube / Penguin UK British children’s book author Allan Ahlberg turned down a lifetime achievement award after he found out Amazon sponsored it, BBC reports.  Ahlberg, in a post on The Bookseller, writes that he initially felt delighted about the award, but decided to refuse it when he discovered Amazon was the sponsor. He disagrees with the company’s tax arrangement in the U.K. Amazon’s low tax rate was first revealed in 2012 and highlighted last year: The company paid just £4.2 million in tax last year on £4.3 billion in sales. “When companies like Amazon cheat — paying 0.1% on billions, pretending it is earning money not in the UK, but in Luxembourg — that’s a bad thing,” he writes.  Ahlberg is famous for his many children’s books in the U.K., 37 of which are illustrated by his late wife, Janet.  “The idea that my ‘lifetime achievement’ …should have the Amazon tag attached to it is unacceptable,” he writes.  He isn’t the only author taking issue with Amazon right now. In the U.S., a pricing battle rages on between Amazon and book publisher Hachette, and authors are stuck in the middle.  Disclosure: Jeff Bezos is an investor in Business Insider through his personal investment company Bezos Expeditions.

  • Want To Change Your Habits? Change Your Password

    Business Insider - Thu, Jul 10, 2014 3:53 PM EDT

    Flickr/Johan Viirok Like lots of us, Mauricio Estrella’s work computer is infuriatingly set to demand a new password every 30 days. The requirements, he shares in a Medium post, were stringent:  “The server forces us to use at least one UPPERCASE character, at least one lowercase alphabetic character, at least one symbol and at least one number. Oh, and the whole damn thing can’t be less than 8 characters. And I can’t use any of the same passwords I’ve used in the last 3 months.” This was back in 2011. He’d just had a divorce. He was sweaty from cycling to work. He had to prep for a 10 a.m. meeting.  Yet with the password prompt, all he had in front of him was a “huge waste of time.” Then the associate creative director remembered a tip from an old boss. “I’m gonna use a password to change my life,” he recalls thinking. He continues: “My password became the indicator. My password reminded me that I shouldn’t let myself be victim of my recent break up, and that I’m strong enough to do something about it. My password became: “ Forgive@h3r” I had to type this statement several times a day. Each time my computer would lock. Each time my screensaver with her photo would appear. Each time I would come back from eating lunch alone. In my mind, I went with the mantra that  I didn’t type a password. In my mind,  I  wrote “ Forgive her ” everyday, for one month.” Changing that password changed the way he thought of his former spouse. It was a recurring refrain, he says, a reminder to forgive her, accept the uncoupling, and embrace a recovery from depression.  “In the following days, my mood improved drastically,” Estrella continues. ”By the end of the 2nd week, I noticed that this password became less powerful, and it started to lose its effect. A quick refresh of this ‘mantra’ helped me. I thought to myself I forgive heras I typed it, every time. The healing effect of it came back almost immediately.” Since shifting his password shifted his outlook in one part of life, he tried another when the prompt to change came around again.  Next up: “Quit@smoking4ever.”  And he quit. Then, Estrella says, he continued his project of behavior change by way of password change. His month-by-month report on success and failure:  • Forgive@her ← to my ex-wife, who started it all. • Quit@smoking4ever ← it worked. • Save4trip@thailand ← it worked. • Eat2times@day ← it never worked, still fat.  • Sleep@before12 ← it worked.  • Ask@her4date ← it worked. I fell in love again.  • No@drinking2months ← it worked. I feel better. • Get@c4t! ← it worked. I have a beautiful cat.   • Facetime2mom@sunday ← it worked. I talk with my mom every week.  But the one from last month is the most momentous:   • Save4@ring ← Yep. Life is gonna change again, soon Estrella’s story, which we first spotted on Jason Kottke’s blog, in instructive for the way that it shows how overlooked details in our lives can help us shape the way we live. It’s a dose of self-improvement in fewer characters than a tweet. It’s an addition to the pre-work ritual, the kind that rockstar chef Anthony Bourdain celebrates. We have a few further ideas:  • pack4@lunchtomorrow ← because you save money when you brown bag it • call2@yoursister ← because she wants to hear from you, too  • 0facebook@work ← because you don’t need the distraction  • write@1000words ← because your novel isn’t going to write itself If you have a self-improvement password mantra, let us know in the comments.
