A New Medical Journal Search Tool from DeepDyve

A new search site is in beta called DeepDyve that has some promise. First, they claim that they index millions of medical papers from paid journals and free sites. The problem in the past is that this content wasn’t too readily available. Yes, there is Medline, but not a very user-friendly tool. Second, getting copies of the papers to read has never been easy, particularly for those of us in the lay community that don’t have medical center accounts or access to medical libraries. This is where DeepDyve comes in. They charge a buck to rent the paper for 24 hours. You can get other “plans” that allow unlimited access for more money. Does this sound familiar, like renting movies? Got it. Their search engine is very simplistic — you can’t sort by date for example. But you can enter an entire abstract into the search query to narrow things down. ... (more)

A Call for Clarity: the Adobe Flash Issue

Adobe Air on Ulitzer When I was selling software, one of things that came up and that I was coached to use as a selling tool was the whole issue around what is OK and not OK about using Adobe Flash. There were a few schools of thought or lines of attack, depending on how you looked at the world. 1 - the Flash End User License Agreement (EULA) expressly forbade the use of the Flash player for digital signage, and software companies needed to buy/license the developer libraries to be legit 2 - the EULA did not apply to PCs and therefore it didn't matter 3 - it was unclear, and Adobe wasn't helping add any clarity 4 - Flash for digital signage sucks, and is such a buggy, memory-leaking, CPU-intensive pig you'd be crazy to use it anyway I hovered somewhere between 1 and 2, knew 3 was true, and figured 4 was pretty much true, but there were too many good capabilities in F...

iPad on Ulitzer - How To Jump On the iPad Buzz

iPad on Ulitzer There were two kinds of technology companies issuing press releases today. Goofball ones that were somehow oblivious to Apple's planned announcement, and thought it was just another day and their stuff would get the usual attention. And those who watched the announcement of the iPad and realized there was excitement to leverage, and put together their own announcement. Now just about anyone in digital signage making an announcement that somehow tied in to the iPad would be regarded with giggles, but Nanonation is one of only a few companies in the space that actually have some genuine Apple ties, history and chops, so to speak. In the hours after the celebrated tablet was announced, Nanonation issued a release saying its propellerheads were all over this thing. Software developer Nanonation announced plans to support and develop new customer-facing applica... (more)

On DRM and Piracy

This morning I happened to be standing within earshot of a couple men in their 60s who were having a casual conversation. I've heard these folks talking before. If I were to rank their computer experience, I would have to put them into the category of people who are typically the butt of jokes of entry-level support technicians worldwide. These are the guys who pay the Geek Squad to come to their house to set up their WiFi and their HD TV. There's nothing wrong with this, mind you - I just want to nail home the point that the people I'm about to discuss are average joes, with less than average computer skills. So one guy starts complaining to the other that the subtitles on this movie he was watching weren't working properly. I didn't think too much of it and went about my business. Then I hear that he is talking about the VLC player and he's complaining that the s... (more)

Big Data – Business Value

With every passing day, Big Data assumes new strength as a significant force in our industry. Someone even said that Big Data is transforming business same way IT did few decades ago. The overall revenue (includes hardware, software, service) for Big Data is said to be around $5.1B in 2011 and includes players such as IBM, Intel, HP, Fujitsu, etc. This is hard to fathom! But pure-play revenue coming from players such as Vertica, Aster, Cloudera, Greenplum, 1010Data, etc. is valued at $468M in 2011. Then someone said the projected revenue from Big Data will reach an astounding $53B by 2017 (source- Wikibon), growing to $10B in 2013, $32 in 2015 and $48B in 2016. We can argue on these numbers, but let us agree that this will be quite big. Why is that? We all know about data growth. Facebook with 900M users in April, 2012 did analytics on 25PB (petabytes) of compresse... (more)
