HP presenta TouchPad: obiettivo iPad

HP presenta TouchPad: obiettivo iPad

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); I sostenitori di Apple probabilmente diranno che il nuovo ed atteso TouchPad di HP è una copia di iPad, ma in certe dispute sterili è opportuno non entrare; sul fronte della mera considerazione oggettiva invece, è innegabile la somiglianza tra i due dispositivi. L’offensiva del più grande produttore al mondo di PC nei confronti del riferimento per antonomasia in ambito tablet passa dunque per una realizzazione...

Tim Berners-Lee calls for Free Internet Everywhere

Tim Berners-Lee calls for Free Internet Everywhere

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web, has used a speech at a Nokia conference in London to call for everybody worldwide to get free Internet access and at least a low bandwidth connection “by default”, as reported by the BBC. In his call for free Internet access he highlighted the fact that just 20% of the world’s population currently has access to the web, and said that free unfettered access...

Mac vs. PC: Myth-busting Guide for Consumers

Mac vs. PC: Myth-busting Guide for Consumers

It’s no surprise that the war between Mac and PC users has been going on for ages. Some Mac users can’t stand PC users and vise-versa. Windows users claim that Macs aren’t suitable computers because they’re not practical and Mac users claim that PCs are insufficient and slow. So can we credit these myths? Are Macs not worth their price? Are Windows PCs really that awful? In this article, we will compare both companies in a very neutral manner! We will first understand...

How to Use Your Tech Power for Good

How to Use Your Tech Power for Good

Last week Leo Laporte did a Gov 2.0 special show on TWiT with Tim O’Reilly and Jennifer Pahlka, a must-listen for programmers who want to use their skills to make the world a better place. It opened with this Code for America spot, which features Tim, Mark Zuckerberg, Caterina Fake, and Biz Stone. The Code for America fellowship application deadline has passed, but if you want to use your coding skills to help our government make better policy decisions, you can do so by contributing...

What to Expect From “Google Me”

What to Expect From “Google Me”

My greatest hope for the hotly-rumored, might-launch-any-day-now social networking app “Google Me” is that it will not merely clone Facebook in a weak attempt at parity, but that it will innovate and solve problems that plague existing social networks. Last month, a senior user experience researcher at Google, Paul Adams, gave a presentation entitled “The Real Life Social Network.” The 224 slides, embedded below, describe some of the problems and common user behavior...

The “Only If We’re Offline Friends” Rule

The “Only If We’re Offline Friends” Rule

I’m active on a LOT of social/sharing webapps: Twitter, Flickr, Foursquare, Tumblr, and to a lesser degree, FriendFeed, Delicious and Buzz. While most of my posts are public and open to everyone, on Foursquare and Facebook*, I only accept friend requests from people who I know and hang out with offline. Still, I feel bad refusing friend requests from people who listen to TWiG or read Lifehacker or this blog simply because I don’t know them. What I really want, on every social...

My Interview on The Pipeline

My Interview on The Pipeline

Almost every interview I do these days for podcasts or magazines involves the inevitable question: “What are your best productivity tricks?” That’s why it was so refreshing to do an interview with Dan Benjamin on his excellent show, The Pipeline, and never have to answer that question. Instead Dan wanted to chat about my progression from a day coder and no-name night blogger back in 2001 to a “pro blogger,” about what made Lifehacker a success (hint: it’s...

Celebrate Ada Lovelace Day by Coding Something Meaningful

Celebrate Ada Lovelace Day by Coding Something Meaningful

It’s Ada Lovelace Day and I haven’t had time to write up something profound about women in tech, because, well, I’ve been too busy coding. Appropriate, no? I’ve been jamming on ThinkTank, a new webapp that will help the White House crowdsource ideas for our country’s scientific and technological goals. It’s also one of the youngest, pluckiest, up-and-coming woman-friendly open source projects around. My partner at Expert Labs Anil Dash explains why: Besides...

TWiG Live from SXSW

TWiG Live from SXSW

Had a blast recording the latest episode of This Week in Google in person with Jeff Jarvis and Leo Laporte in Austin at SXSW this past Saturday. We had a live audience in-studio of friends and supporters there too, with guest appearances by Matt Haughey, Adam Pash, and Jake Jarvis rotating in on the fourth mic. It was so cool to see what happens beyond my Skype headset every Saturday and finally get to give Leo a big hug in person. Speaking of Leo at SXSW, if you haven’t seen him...

The Evolutionary Reason for Depression

The Evolutionary Reason for Depression

If depression has an evolutionary purpose, it’s certainly not obvious. Depression makes people consider suicide and less interested in sex, which does not encourage the species’ survival. But two evolutionary psychologists theorize that depression’s purpose is enhanced mental skills. Sadness focuses the brain’s attention on a conflict, and makes you better-equipped to make good decisions. A fascinating New York Times magazine article entitled Depression’s...

Closing the Feedback Loop

Closing the Feedback Loop

Matt Haughey says Google Buzz doesn’t offer an easy way for publishers to see what people are saying about their stuff. He’s right; as in Google Reader and Facebook, much of the liking and commenting and sharing that goes on in Buzz happens out of earshot of the creator. I think Buzz is a fine product–a pretty predictable FriendFeed clone, really–but it does suffer from this same broken loop problem that Google Reader creates. Also of interest to other publishers,...

Google Buzz: Gmail’s New Social Network Activity Aggregator

Google Buzz: Gmail’s New Social Network Activity Aggregator

Google announced the all-new Google Buzz today, a Gmail “inbox” of sorts that aggregates all your contacts’ social network activity across the web. Lifehacker’s got the full rundown. A few quickly-jotted first impressions of the service: This ain’t no Orkut. Buzz demonstrates that Google is VERY serious about social media, and just threw down the gauntlet in an attempt to take on Facebook and Twitter. However, they’re doing it by embracing existing...

Frequently Asked Questions About Google Wave

Frequently Asked Questions About Google Wave

The Google Wave Preview has been available to one million+ people for over three months now, but questions about Wave still abound, even by the early adopters who have gotten in and taken it for a test drive. After publishing a book on everything I know about Wave, I still get many of the same questions I heard back when I started. Even folks usually bullish about new technology still don’t understand what they can use Wave for, how to sell it to their friends and co-workers so...

Introducing ThinkTank

Introducing ThinkTank

The application formerly known as Twitalytic is now called ThinkTank, and I’m carving out some time in the New Year to grow it into something good.

Confessions of a Public Speaker Demystifies Your Fear of Public Speaking

Confessions of a Public Speaker Demystifies Your Fear of Public Speaking

Getting up on stage, taking a microphone, and facing an expectant audience scares the crap out of most mere mortals. But rock star public speakers from Al Gore to Tony Robbins inspire and inform thousands of people with their talks–and charge $30,000 an hour to do so. Scott Berkun’s new book, Confessions of a Public Speaker, explains why, how, and what goes on before and after a great speech. “Good public speaking is based on good private thinking,” Berkun writes...

Note Taker Turns Your iPhone into an Endless Notepad

Note Taker Turns Your iPhone into an Endless Notepad

VisiCalc creator Dan Bricklin–you know, the guy who invented the spreadsheet–has delved into mobile development and released his first iPhone/iPod touch application, Note Taker. Rather than use keyboard, in Note Taker you jot notes using the tip of your finger on your touchscreen as if it were a pen on an index card. (See my bad handwriting in Note Taker in the screenshot here.) Note Taker looks and sounds more awkward than it actually is: the application employs some nifty...
