MySpace users threaten to sue after years of blogs deleted

MySpace has been accused of deleting years worth of users’ personal blogs and histories after the site underwent a $20 million relaunch last month.

The move was a bid to shed the site’s outdated image and attract a new teenage fanbase, after millions of users migrated to Facebook as their primary social networking site in the late 2000s.

Purchased by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation in 2005 for $580m, a decision Murdoch has since called a “huge mistake”, MySpace’s focus on music and entertainment over social interaction has been credited as one of the reasons behind its decline.

At its peak, the site boasted 125m users and more webpage visits than Google. It now has around 25m users.

In 2011 Specific Media Group and pop heartthrob Justin Timberlake jointly purchased the company for $35m, and have since attempted to rebrand the site for the teenage generation through campaigns with rapper Pharrell.

This sleek new makeover has resulted in the deletion of blogs, videos, private messages, posts and comments without prior warning, much to the fury of its remaining loyal users.

Distraught fans created a thread entitled ‘I want my blogs and classic myspace back’ to vent their frustration at the move one user called “crass arrogance”.

They continued: “You have stolen 6 years of blogs and something that is priceless to me and cannot be replaced.”

Another lamented the deletion of her blogs, writing: “Openly and freely I shared intimate moments that can not be relived or retold for they where experienced. I would revisit myspace religiously because of my blogs… Myspace did an ultimate back stab.” [sic]

MySpace responded to concerns with the soothing message that the information had not been lost forever.

It said: “Change isn’t easy and there has been a lot going on lately. We understand that this information is very important to you. Please understand that your blogs have not been deleted. Your content is safe and we have been discussing the best ways possible to provide you your blogs.”

HP Releases Desktop PC with Military Standards

Global desktop PC sales continue to slow. However, this does not preclude Hewlett-Packard (HP) to continue releasing the latest desktop PC product lines.

No half-hearted, at an event in Jakarta, Wednesday (07/24/2013), HP released 4 series desktop PCs at once, namely EliteOne 800 G1, G1 EliteDesk 800, ProOne 600 G1, and G1 ProDesk 600. The four were aimed at the business segment.

Present as a business device, HP equip these devices with a variety of features that do not exist in the PC consumer.

For example, four of which are equipped with a safety feature called HP Client Security. Using these features, users can protect the devices at every layer, including hardware, software, and BIOS.

Other value, the products have passed the test of military standards. According to Ricky Handrian, MDM Business Desktop PC HP Indonesia, standardization include durability, shock, and temperature.

These devices have to endure or withstand heavy overwritten with a maximum weight of 75 kg. In addition, products with military standards must withstand shock, although it has been taken away in a car in the distance.

“Devices that pass this certification should still be able to operate, though it was taken in a truck and suffered shock, for example, 1,000 miles,” said Ricky.

HP Series 800 G1 EliteOne a version All-in-one PC from EliteDesk 800 G1. This product is available in one version a touch screen and non-touch also.

Those who are interested can choose the specifications of the product. To EliteOne 800 G1, specification available is generation Intel Core processors up to 4 Haswell, Windows 8 Pro, up to 16 GB of RAM, up to 1 TB HDD, and a 23-inch LED screen.

Meanwhile, the desktop version of this device, EliteDesk 800 G1, comes with a slightly higher specification, namely 4-generation Intel Core processor Haswell, Windows 8 Pro, 32 GB RAM, and up to 2 TB HDD.

Carrying the same concept with the EliteBook 800, ProOne 600 HP version of the G1 is the all-in-one PC from HP ProDesk 600 G1. For the problem specification, these two products have the same choice as the Elite 800 series.

So, what distinguishes the two series? According to Ricky, the two series have different processor platforms support. 800 Series uses Intel Q87 platform. While the Pro 600 series using Q85.

“ProDesk Series 600 is a downgraded version of the EliteBook 800. ProDesk device 600 is certainly cheaper than EliteBook 800. Yeah, let’s just ProDesk 600 as the sister of the EliteBook 800,” added Ricky.

Official feedback on OpenGL 4.4 thread

 SIGGRAPH – Anaheim, CA – The Khronos™ Group today announced the immediate release of the OpenGL® 4.4 specification,bringing the very latest graphics functionality to the most advanced and widely adopted cross-platform 2D and 3D graphics API (application programming interface). OpenGL 4.4 unlocks capabilities of today’s leading-edge graphics hardware while maintaining full backwards compatibility, enabling applications to incrementally use new features while portably accessing state-of-the-art graphics processing units (GPUs) across diverse operating systems and platforms. Also, OpenGL 4.4 defines new functionality to streamline the porting of applications and titles from other platforms and APIs. The full specification and reference materials are available for immediate download at http://www.opengl.org/registry.

In addition to the OpenGL 4.4 specification, the OpenGL ARB (Architecture Review Board) Working Group at Khronos has created the first set of formal OpenGL conformance tests since OpenGL 2.0. Khronos will offer certification of drivers from version 3.3, and full certification is mandatory for OpenGL 4.4 and onwards. This will help reduce differences between multiple vendors’ OpenGL drivers, resulting in enhanced portability for developers.

New functionality in the OpenGL 4.4 specification includes:

Buffer Placement Control (GL_ARB_buffer_storage)
Significantly enhances memory flexibility and efficiency through explicit control over the position of buffers in the graphics and system memory, together with cache behavior control – including the ability of the CPU to map a buffer for direct use by a GPU.

Efficient Asynchronous Queries
(GL_ARB_query_buffer_object)
Buffer objects can be the direct target of a query to avoid the CPU waiting for the result and stalling the graphics pipeline. This provides significantly boosted performance for applications that intend to subsequently use the results of queries on the GPU, such as dynamic quality reduction strategies based on performance metrics.

Shader Variable Layout (GL_ARB_enhanced_layouts)
Detailed control over placement of shader interface variables, including the ability to pack vectors efficiently with scalar types. Includes full control over variable layout inside uniform blocks and enables shaders to specify transform feedback variables and buffer layout.

Efficient Multiple Object Binding (GL_ARB_multi_bind)
New commands which enable an application to bind or unbind sets of objects with one API call instead of separate commands for each bind operation, amortizing the function call, name space lookup, and potential locking overhead. The core rendering loop of many graphics applications frequently bind different sets of textures, samplers, images, vertex buffers, and uniform buffers and so this can significantly reduce CPU overhead and improve performance.

Streamlined Porting of Direct3D applications

A number of core functions contribute to easier porting of applications and games written in Direct3D including GL_ARB_buffer_storage for buffer placement control, GL_ARB_vertex_type_10f_11f_11f_rev which creates a vertex data type that packs three components in a 32 bit value that provides a performance improvement for lower precision vertices and is a format used by Direct3D, and GL_ARB_texture_mirror_clamp_to_edge that provides a texture clamping mode also used by Direct3D.Extensions released alongside the OpenGL 4.4 specification include:

Bindless Texture Extension (GL_ARB_bindless_texture)
Shaders can now access an effectively unlimited number of texture and image resources directly by virtual addresses. This bindless texture approach avoids the application overhead due to explicitly binding a small window of accessible textures. Ray tracing and global illumination algorithms are faster and simpler with unfettered access to a virtual world’s entire texture set.

Sparse Texture Extension (GL_ARB_sparse_texture)
Enables handling of huge textures that are much larger than the GPUs physical memory by allowing an application to select which regions of the texture are resident for ‘mega-texture’ algorithms and very large data-set visualizations.

OpenGL BOF at SIGGRAPH, Anaheim, CA July 24th 2013
There is an OpenGL BOF “Birds of a Feather” Meeting on Wednesday July 24th at 7-8PM at the Hilton Anaheim, California Ballroom A & B, where attendees are invited to meet OpenGL implementers and developers and learn more about the new OpenGL 4.4 specification.

Facebook Earnings Review: What Wall Street Thinks

NEW YORK (TheStreet) — Facebook’s (FB_) second-quarter earnings focused on mobile revenue. Shares were soaring in premarket trading Thursday as Wall Street raised price targets and upgraded shares.

 The Menlo Park, Calif.-based social networker earned 19 cents a share on $1.813 billion in revenue for the quarter, as mobile advertising revenue accounted for 41% of advertising revenue this quarter. Total advertising revenue was $1.6 billion, 88% of total revenue, and up 61% year over year.

Analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters were expecting Facebook to earn 14 cents a share on $1.62 billion in revenue for the quarter.

The company ended the quarter with 1.15 billion monthly active users (MAUs), up 21% year over year. There was a 51% annual increase in mobile MAUs, which drove the strength in mobile revenue. Daily active users (DAUs) were 699 million, up 27% annually.

Following the earnings, many analysts were bullish, with several upgrading shares and raising price targets. Here’s what some analysts on Wall Street had to say:

JPMorgan analyst Doug Anmuth (Overweight, $44 PT)

“Facebook delivered its strongest quarter yet as a public company–results that we think could be thesis-changing for many–and we would continue to buy Facebook shares even after the ~17% move up in the after-market. Our revenue and nonGAAP EPS estimates increase 12% and 38% for 2013, and 22% and 46% for 2014.”

Topeka Capital Markets analyst Victor Anthony (Buy, $40 PT)

“Facebook needed to, and delivered, a blowout quarter. What is clear from the results is advertisers have validated Facebook as an advertising platform. For full year 2013, our revenue and Adj. EPS increases to $7.196B and $0.71, resp, from $6.733B and $0.63. We still see more upside for the stock and recommend purchase. There are several well defined catalysts over the next two years that should lead to further share price appreciation, including: 1) monetizing Instagram, which, per CEO Zuckerberg, will generate “a lot of profits”, 2) launch of auto-play video ads, 3) monetizing Graph Search, 4) a bigger push into e-commerce, and 5) the potential for S&P 500 inclusion. Further, only 1mm or 6% of FB’s 18mm potential advertisers are buying ads, implying a huge runway for advertiser uptake exists.”

Sterne Agee analyst Arvind Bhatia (Buy, $37 PT)

“We are incrementally bullish on FB’s prospects following 2Q results and believe the stock should be a core holding in Internet portfolios. 2Q’s highlight was Mobile advertising (+76% q/q versus consensus +20%). Overall revenue (53% y/y) and EBITDA (+57% y/y) accelerated from 1Q’s 38%/35% revenue/EBITDA growth. Better than expected user engagement, strong monetization and good cost control helped FB outperform even the most bullish expectations on the Street. Reiterating Buy.”

Oppenheimer analyst Jason Helfstein (Outperform, $36 PT)

“Following materially better than expected 2Q results, we are increasing our estimates and price target, and are reiterating our Outperform rating. 2Q upside was driven by higher advertiser demand for newsfeed, both on volume and price, and since mobile Newsfeed pricing is similar to desktop and advertisers are largely indifferent between mobile and desktop, revenues are tracking the consumer shift to smartphones. We believe this dynamic is an important differentiator vs. other ad-supported internet companies, that are being hurt by the mobile mix shift. As such, we are increasing ’13E and ’14E revenue by 3% and 5%, and non-GAAP EPS by 7% and 9%, respectively. Raising target to $36 from $32.”

Shares of Facebook were soaring following earnings, tacking on 30.48% to $34.59 in premarket trading.

Acer Aspire V5-122 with AMD Temash

Jakarta-ultrabook exorbitant price makes it less attractive thin notebook. Despite having a number of advantages compared to notebooks in general, such as fast boot time and lightweight body, the average price is above USD 10 million to be a serious obstacle.

As an alternative, some computer vendors began marketing sense ultrabook notebook with a more affordable price. Call it VivoBook X202E Asus, Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11, Dell XPS 12, or Acer Aspire V5-122.

Yes, with many excellent features adopted from the ultrabook, notebook sold in the under $ 10 million. But in terms of performance is less than the true ultrabook. But the experience of computing an ultrabook can still be felt on the notebook.

Like most new output notebooks, Aspire V5-122 is equipped with the latest features for connectivity. One of which is USB 3.0 is capable of transferring and receiving data 10 times faster than USB 2.0. USB 3.0 port is located on the left side.

In addition to USB 3.0, Aspire V5-122 is equipped with a USB 2.0 port is on the right side. In addition there is a card reader slot. As for the wireless connectivity, Acer presents Wi-Fi 802.11 b / g / n and Bluetooth 4.0.

SCREEN

Screen Aspire V5-122 is able to produce high levels of brightness. Using glossy reflective technology, the Aspire V5-122 black color makes it look more dense and the resulting image sharpness deeper than the regular screen.

Only, with a relatively cheap price than the ultrabook, Acer just immerse the display with a standard resolution, 1,366 x 768 pixels only. That is, watch the video with 1080p high definition resolution was less than optimal on-screen Aspire V5-122’s.

Moreover, with the use of the Windows 8 operating system and the increasing number of applications that require content HD screen resolution, screen technology Aspire V5-122 feels a little left behind.

PERFORMANCE

Acer Aspire V5-122 is equipped with AMD processors Jaguar Temash APU A6-1450 quad-core processors with speeds up to 1 GHz of computing processes. As for the graphics processing embedded AMD Radeon HD 8280G which has a thermal design power (TDP), only 8 watts.

Jaguar AMD A6-1450 APU processor is the new output. This low-power processor platform is the successor of Zacate and Ontario, the first generation processor which is equipped with power-saving features with four cores.

Low power consumption that makes the battery life to be quite long. During the trial, Tempo get the battery can last up to 5 hours with normal use and use the Wi-Fi connectivity.

To support the performance of the processor, Acer relies DDR 3 RAM memory of 6 GB with a storage capacity of 500 GB hard-disk. Hard-disk usage is what makes the Aspire V5-122 can not be called as an ultrabook, but of course the use processors made by AMD.

CONCLUSION
