Go ahead and put Laso Schaller’s name down in the record books. For much of the week, a Red Bull video has been making the rounds on the internet showing a point-of-view perspective of the Brazilian-born thrill seeker plummeting from a platform perched atop a 192-foot waterfall in Switzerland known as Cascata del Salto.By the end of his free fall—from a height roughly equivalent to the Leaning Tower of Pisa—Schaller’s body had reached a speeds of 123 km or 74 miles per hour. According to Red Bull, Schallar is an experienced canyoneering expert with multiple 100 plus foot cliff jumps under his belt.“Once you get above 25m, everything starts to look and feel the same,” he says. “The only difference is the airtime.” Watch this epic cliff jump for yourself below!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5uXL4w90yU♦♦♦

Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement sarah perez “I didn’t really use Facebook that much until I got my iPhone.” Sound familiar? That sentiment and variations of it has provided powerful anecdotal evidence over the past several months about the impact smartphones are having on the way people are using the mobile web to connect with others. Through the mobile phone, today’s more mainstream users – those folks who don’t count sitting behind a glowing screen among their favorite pastimes – have begun to interact on the mobile web, specifically the social web, in greater numbers than ever before. A new report by Openwave provides more evidence of this trend. Their findings show that four of the top ten domains accessed via mobile devices are social networking sites. Facebook and MySpace, of course, featured prominently on that list. Four of Ten Top Mobile Destinations are Social Networks, Says OpenwaveThe company’s Fall 2009 report highlights mobile Internet use trends in North America and uses data from an unnamed tier-one mobile operator who offers services to both consumers and business. The data sampled represents a five-day period in September of this year. Among the top ten domains by page impressions are four social networking sites: Facebook, MySpace, Myxer, and Plenty-of-Fish, the last two being a ringtone creation and sharing site and a dating network, respectively. The inclusion of those two under the banner “social networking” is a little iffy, at best. Dating sites could be considered a category of social networking, we suppose, but Myxer seems more like an entertainment destination than a social network.The other top domains making the list included about.com, accuweather.com, craigslist.org, imdb.com, wap.aol.com, and calltunes.operator.com. While we have no reason to doubt the accuracy of this study, we find it odd that google.com didn’t make an appearance. It seems like we google something on our mobile phones on a daily basis – don’t you?Still, despite these questions, it’s clear from the findings that social networks are a popular destination for mobile users, even if you only count MySpace and Facebook. Those two sites alone racked up the impressions as both the number one and number three sites visited. Related Posts Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Tags:#mobile#Trends#web What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … MySpace Beats Facebook? Really?Oddly, the chart shows that MySpace beat out Facebook, another questionable finding given that once popular site’s rapid decline in traffic as of late. Recent numbers from the U.S.-centric analytics firm Compete, for example, showed MySpace traffic dropping from 55.6 million unique visitors in August to 50.2 million in September. Given such a sharp decline, you would expect to see a similar drop in mobile visits as well. Meanwhile, Facebook announced that they saw 65 million visits from mobile phones in the month of August, a huge rise from what was only 20 million back in December of 2007. Could they really be beaten out by that much on the mobile web according to this particular carrier? According to Openwave’s report, they are. While this recent report left us wondering, we have no doubt that social network use via mobile phones is trending upward these days. As the Internet Advertising Bureau (IAB) reported last month, there has been a one-year increase of 179% in subscribers accessing social networking sites from their mobile devices while those same sites only saw a 10% increase on the PC versions of the sites. And they’re just one of manyotheroutlets reporting similar trends. Social networking via the mobile phone is obviously a hot trend these days and one that hasn’t peaked yet.

Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… adam popescu A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#CISPA#privacy#security Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market The more things change the more they stay the same.With the strike of his pen Tuesday, President Obama signed an executive order aimed at bolstering the nation’s cyber defenses and improving security. Later that night, in his State of the Union address, the President preached about the need to protect the country from online threats and the value of the private and public sector coming together to face protect the nation’s critical infrastructure. In his speech, he urged Congress to get to work to make this happen.“Now, Congress must act as well, by passing legislation to give our government a greater capacity to secure our networks and deter attacks,” Obama said.Emboldened by the chief executive’s rhetoric, on Wednesday members of the House of Representatives reintroduced CISPA (Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act), the highly controversial legislation that saw heavy opposition and online protest last year for its failure to protect the very privacy rights that the President’s current executive order claims to protect. The measure, which passed the House last year but failed in the Senate, amends the National Security Act of 1947 to add provisions concerning cyber threat intelligence sharing. That means CISPA offers legal protection for sharing personal data (such as private email correspondence) between the government and private companies – all without a warrant. Here’s the updated version of CISPA, introduced by Reps. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) and Dutch Ruppersberger (D-Md.).If enacted, this would give Federal agencies a blank check to search our private data. Our once “unalienable rights” as Americans are starting to look more and more alienated. Backing the bill are a host of major trade groups as well as tech giants like AT&T, Facebook, IBM, Intel, Oracle, Symantec and Verizon. Why do these companies support it? One of those supporters, Facebook, said the law would not make the company share any more of its own data than is required. Others have explained their support by saying that sharing major data about cyber attacks would help protect all companies. Backlash And Measured ResponsesIn the wake of this news, there’s been a major backlash online. Privacy advocate groups such as the ACLU, and the Center for Democracy and Technology, are all up in arms. The Electronic Frontier Foundation is asking people to contact their representatives to oppose the bill. The Internet nonprofit Fight For The Future has set up the protest website CISPAisBack.com as a resource to petition the bill, and provides info on CISPA and even phone numbers of representatives and a script to use when calling.There’s no denying that America is vulnerable online. In 2012, the number of attacks reported to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security grew by 52%, according to Homeland Security’s Industrial Control Systems Cyber Emergency Response Team. But while something significant must be done, our privacy should not be sacrificed in the process.Marc Rotenberg, the executive director of the Electronic Privacy Information Center, calls CISPA a “civil liberties minefield.” Instead, he’s in favor of “the approach set out in the executive order: Transparent, collaborative, and under the direction of a civilian agency.”Michelle Richardson, legislative counsel at the ACLU, adds that the main danger of CISPA is that it makes companies exempt from all the privacy laws currently on the books. And in so doing, creates tremendous uncertainty when it comes to our personal data.“The idea of ‘information sharing’ isn’t necessarily offensive in and of itself, but the question is what info will be shared, who can it be shared with and what can be done with it?” Richardson asked.Richardson agrees with Rotenberg that such programs should remain in civilian hands, and future privacy protections must include sharing restrictions. Richardson doesn’t think CISPA meets those requirements, and hopes that as it moves along the legislative process, it will incorporate some of the amendments made to last year’s failed Senate bill. “The Senate bill is not perfect, but it’s a better alternative privacy-wise and hopefully the House will consider incorporating some of those protections.”But whether or not the new bill will incorporate those earlier changes is still a big question mark. “No one knows what will be in the final bill voted on by the Senate,” said Michael Hussey, the chief executive and founder of the personal search engine site PeekYou.Who Will Really Win And Lose?While Hussey and most Web companies and individuals want improvements, they are only seeking specific regulations to what kind of information can be shared, and regs geared to protecting people’s privacy. Hussey thinks major companies, like Facebook and IBM, are supporting the bill because that could keep them on top, and competitors out of or pushed down within the marketplace.“In this case, the largest players all stand to gain from open-ended legislation towards this end, likely at the expense of competitors and consumers,” Hussey emphasized.This is the first chapter in Book Two of the CISPA saga. There are many more to go through as the proposal begins its long route through Congress. If you are concerned about online privacy, it would be a good idea to monitor the progress of the bill, and make your concerns known to your Congressional representative.Image courtesy of Shutterstock.

Newcastle boss Bruce: I understand Benitez tacticsby Ansser Sadiqa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveNewcastle United boss Steve Bruce is beginning to understand why Rafa Benitez played a specific way at the club.Bruce took on a difficult job at Newcastle this summer, taking over from the very popular Benitez after the Spaniard could not agree a new contract.The Magpies drew 0-0 against Brighton, and were booed by their own fans at half time and full time in the clash.”Listen, whoever we are playing in the Premier League, we’ve got no divine right to beat Watford or Brighton so we all know they are going to be difficult games and that’s what the Premier League is but certainly if we are going to win games, we are going to have to play better and be better with the ball and without it,” Bruce told reporters after the game.”Today, in the first half in particular, we weren’t good enough either and left ourselves open and it’s pretty evident to me after being here eight weeks of why we can’t open up. “If we do that, we’re going to find it a struggle like we did in the first half. It wasn’t until we closed shop a little bit, even at home, that maybe got us a point.” About the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your say
