Twitter Will Evolve Like the TV?

CALIFORNIA – A recent study reveals social networking site Twitter will turn into a place where people sell products and fame. Two researchers from Columbia Business School and the University of Pittsburgh said, later Twitter is like a TV ad featuring the artists and activities.

Olivier Toubia, professor from Columbia Business School, and Andrew T. Stephen, an assistant professor at the University of Pittsburgh, who conducted the study believe Twitter users who only use it for personal purposes will decrease.

Instead, Twitter activity are used for product promotion or promotion of a company of a celebrity will continue. “So be prepared to welcome Twitter with content such as TV,” said professor Toubia.

The study was conducted by examining at least 2500 non-commercial Twitter account. The study was conducted by randomly selecting accounts to identify the use of Twitter and find out about the follower.

The study found that the results in some groups follower accounts increased meaning of each rating also increased his tweet. In other words, a tweet from a follower who increased his can be used for promotion.

Toubia and Stephen predicts post Twitter for regular users will decrease, while the activity of the celebrities and commercial products will continue to increase.

“Communication between one’s personal will be reduced on Twitter. Twitter and activity will be mainly dominated by commercial content, “says Toubia.

Yet he denies Twitter will lose his fame in the future. “With 500 million Twitter users around the world will not be destroyed, but rather to be a tool for the promotion activities of celebrities, companies or anything like that,” he concluded.

So what’s the secret to this panel can be very thin? The secret lies in between the display panel and touch the film (layer touch screen). LG Dual Flexible Printed circuit inserts instead of regular single circuit. All components are then combined with Optical Clear Resin parts in between the panel and touch the film with immediate unification system. As a result, it will automatically reduce the thickness of the panel itself as much as 30 percent.
With the presence Optical Clear Resin, this new tech screen brightness can have a better screen.

Apple Patent Register Battery Surveillance Technology

Smartphones today are able to facilitate human needs must have a very high performance. So that mobile devices require a lot of power. So many smartphone manufacturers are promoting their products with a battery that can last a long time one of them is the iPhone.
IPhone devices manufactured by Apple is continuing to develop its technological capabilities. Recently they have patented the a new technology that can extend the device battery iPhone.
Reported by Apple Insider, the technology works by stalking or studying user behavior patterns smartphone during a certain period. Power consumption is adjusted based on the user’s habits in a way like turning off the hardware components, reducing the frequency, up to date email, and services that consume the data, close the software, thereby maximizing battery life.
If the regular iPhone user is traveling from 7 pm to 9 am, then sleep at 11, then the smartphone will notice the pattern with an automated way to cut power consumption at these times
Savings of Apple’s technology also involves a means of determining the location via GPS. Knowing the outcome smartphone anywhere casual users to charge the battery and when the battery is estimated to last up charging locations hereinafter, if not the austerity measures will be carried out.
Ironically, this technology utilizing the GPS service, which is one factor draining the battery on a modern smartphone. Patent application on the technology in question has been filed by Apple last year. Although it was not clear whether the will actually be implemented in the final product, may be the next generation iPhone will be able to study the behavior of the user to save the battery.

Make OS X Faster & Efficient

Because created and designed by one company, hardware and software from Apple can work optimally and efficiently. One of the advantages are when we install OS X, we do not need to fuss looking for drivers for the Mac that we use.

Moreover, because the security system, not many viruses that successfully made to screw up OS X, though there is still malware that managed to infiltrate. It was not to screw up OS X, but rather aims to steal sensitive data or personal in the Mac.

While it is arguably efficient, we can still fiddling with that OS X running faster again.
Here are some things we can do:

Hardware side

T02-436-111-make. Upgrading memory up stuck. Output for Macbook Pro 2012 to the above, this is not possible, because the memory is soldered directly to the motherboard. Even so great a minimum of memory available is quite capable, which is 4 GB. 4 GB of memory is the minimum for all major applications in both heavy-and could not walk comfortably. The bigger the memory, the better.

2. Upgrade the hard drive. Mac can walk comfortably if enough free space available in the T02-436-make-12partisi existing OS X. In order to walk comfortably, should be available at least 30 GB of free space. If you use a heavy application sorts PhotoShop, AutoCAD, or the other, there are at least 80-120 GB of free space on my hard drive. So get used to the data stored on the internal hard drive external hard drives that can have empty space relief. If forced, upgraded hard drive to a larger capacity. If you can, use a hard drive upgrade to SSD. It is still expensive, but the performance is much more hurried.

 

Software side

T02-436-21a1-making. Repair Disk Permissions. Actually this procedure is to check whether the file status in accordance with the original. File status could change as the applications that use them have problems. As a result, the Mac can run slow or weird, such as the application of a sudden go out alone, running slower, slower booting, and other sebagainya.Caranya quite easily, run Disk Utility> click on the existing partition OS X it> click repair permission and wait until the process is complete. If you’ve done repair permissions, more afdol followed by a second step.

T02-436 T02-make-436-21b-21c-making

T02-436-22-fetched

2. Reset NVRAM. Non-Volatile RAM or NV-RAM is an OS X application and keep most of the settings that we often use. The goal is that we run the application on the condition that we use. But at a certain point, the NV-RAM will be full and will actually make the Mac went awry. How to reset the NV-RAM is quite straightforward, we turn on the computer and then we immediately pressing Cmd + alt + P + R and press and hold until dueng Mac emits three times.

3. Provide enough free space on the disk / partition OS X is. The trick is to move the data to another hard drive and remove any unwanted applications. With so many free apps available on the AppStore, maybe some of us a lot of the “greedy” to install the free application. In the end, many of these applications are not suitable for us and ultimately make the hard drive so full. Most applications are indeed living discard the application file to the trash. But it does not hurt to uninstall the application using software like CleanApp, AppZapper, CleanMyMac, etc..

T02-436-244-make. Clean desktop. Try not store any files on your desktop as this will slow down the boot. Each boot, OS X will prepare a file on the desktop that can be accessed at any time. If only one or two files it may seem, but we would feel if a desktop full of files.

 

T02-436-255-make. Delete unneeded languages. Mac provides multiple language that is easy to use by people from various countries. Surely we do not need all of the existing language. If only need English only, we better just delete the language that we do not need, especially when they take a big enough hard drive space. The easiest way is to use Monolingual which can be downloaded from http://www.monolingual.sourceforge.net. The trick is easy, just check the language that you want to delete and click remove.

T02-436-26a6-making. Turn off animation. When running the application, mac will display an animation that gives the impression that the application is open from the icon that we double-click the. When the mouse over the application icon in the dock line, the application automatically enlarges. Such animations can we Disable that Mac go faster. Run the System Preferences> Dock> uncheck the choice of animate opening applications. Also do not use the option of changing the existing wallpaper in System Preferences> Desktop & Screen Saver.

7. Set the Startup Item. Some immediate applications come running when OS X booting. Check if there are applications that do not really matter that went along with running. I run the System Preferences> Users & Groups> and check the applications that do not want to run at startup.

 

Mac Monitor Every Time

After performing such optimization step above, of course, we should be able to monitor the Mac that is always in top condition. Some steps we can do include:

T02-436-31-fetched

 

1. Activity Monitor running. This application provides a complete and detailed information firsthand what is happening on the Mac. So when Mac was running slow and do not know why, we can run the Activity Monitor and find out.

a. Button to shut down the application. Once we click on the application process takes a wild and uncontrolled, click the button to turn it off.

b. Percentage of CPU used by an application. Applications that run normally just use cpu power is not more than 10%. More than that, the application will be considered illegal and should be turned off. Applications typically do not have errors and uncontrolled eating up 90% cpu power. No wonder Mac can be slow.

c. This is the part where we can see the other processes of the cpu, such as memory, disk activity, disk in use, and network. Some of them are equipped with a chart showing the current work process.

T02-436-32-fetched

 

2. iStat Menus. This application can display the information that we need in the menu bar, so we only glance we can determine the condition of the current cpu. This application can be purchased at macupdate.com costs 25 dollars.

 

T02-436-333-make. Daisy Disk. Very useful for hard drive clean up when we needed space. Daisy Disk folder instantly displays the big size, so we know which folder has a large file. Can be purchased in the App Store for USD. 95 thousand.

 

T02-436-344-make. Memory Clean. As we know, that we run most of the applications will be put into memory. The problem is, when we close the application, most will still be stored in memory. Over time the memory will be full and the computer was so slow. Used to be the only way to clear this memory just by turning off the computer or restart. Now we can use the Memory Clean with one click direct memory clean. Purge memory several times in order to get maximum results. Download it for free in the App Store.

Lambda Expressions Backported to Java 7, 6 and 5

Do you want to use lambda expressions already today, but you are forced to use Java and a stable JRE in production? Now that’s possible with Retrolambda, which will take bytecode compiled with Java 8 and convert it to run on Java 7, 6 and 5 runtimes, letting you use lambda expressions andmethod references on those platforms. It won’t give you the improved Java 8 Collections API, but fortunately there are multiple alternative libraries which will benefit from lambda expressions.

Behind the Scenes

A couple of days ago in a café it popped into my head to find out whether somebody had made this already, but after speaking into the air, I did it myself over a weekend.

The original plan of copying the classes from OpenJDK didn’t work (LambdaMetafactory depends on some package-private classes and would have required modifications), but I figured out a better way to do it without additional runtime dependencies.

Retrolambda uses a Java agent to find out what bytecode LambdaMetafactory generates dynamically, and saves it as class files, after which it replaces the invokedynamic instructions to instantiate those classes directly. It also changes some private synthetic methods to be package-private, so that normal bytecode can access them without method handles.

After the conversion you’ll have just a bunch of normal .class files – but with less typing.

P.S. If you hear about experiences of using Retrolambda for Android development, please leave a comment.
