Definition of Cloud Computing

Cloud computing is a term that can be defined as having an IT processing as a service rather than product or software and easiest way to visualize it is to compare to electricity. In addition, Cloud computing is an emerging computing model for enabling  an on-demand network access to  a shared pool of configurable  computing resources , such as networks, servers, storage, applications , and services that can be  rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction . Therefore, customers may avoid owning computing infrastructure through renting from computing providers. Read the rest of this entry »

RIOT cyber tracking software: one step closer to Minority Report

minorReport

Massachusetts-based company named Raytheon security firm has developed frightening software called RIOT or Rapid Information Overlay Technology, which is capable of not only tracking anyone’s movements but also can predict future behavior.

RIOT uses data mining from social websites, such as facebook, twitter and so on.

When asked Jared Adams, a spokesman for Raytheon’s intelligence and information systems department, about Riot, he defined: “Riot is a big data analytics system design we are working on with industry, national labs and commercial partners to help turn massive amounts of data into useable information to help meet our nation’s rapidly changing security needs.”

Furthermore, Raytheon has recently admitted that this software was shared with US government and industry riot-1, in 2010, to help build a national security system.

In short, using Riot software, one may gain an entire snapshot of someone else’s movements and may also graphically chart. In the following video, Brian Urch, principle investigator of Raytheon demonstrated how Riot works using one of  employees “Nick” as an example target.

In the video, Urch explains how Riot predicts where Nick can be found in the future. “We know where Nick’s going, we know what Nick looks like,” Urch said, “now we want to try to predict where he may be in the future.”

Here is the Riot video and remember you can run but you can’t  hide !

Fragmentation Nightmare: Challenges of Mobile Application Development

Mobile Apps Fragmentation

No doubt that mobile app for smart phones brings a lot of opportunities and lucrative market. According to Gartner, in 2013 alone 21, 6 billion application will be sold for a total of $29.5 billion revenue. In addition, 25 percent of the revenue generated by mobile applications will be free versions, supported by mobile advertisement.  In addition, Juniper Research forecasts “that the number of global smart phone shipments will mobifragreach billion per annum in 2016, up from 302 million in 2010. Smartphones – traditionally high-end handsets will make-up the majority of shipments in five years’ time, as this type of device becomes available at lower price points”. Therefore, one of the biggest barriers in mobile application development is fragmentation. It increases the cost and the time to develop mobile applications
