Taming Big Data Location Transparency

Andy Thurai, Chief Architect & CTO, Intel App security & Big Data (@AndyThurai) | David Houlding, Privacy Strategist, Intel (@DavidHoulding) Original version of this article appeared on VentureBeat. Concern over big government surveillance and security vulnerabilities has reached global proportions. Big data/analytics, government surveillance, online tracking, behavior profiling for advertising and other major tracking activity trends have elevated privacy risks and identity based attacks. This has prompted review and discussion of revoking or revising data protection laws governing trans-border data flow, such as EU Safe Harbor, Singapore government privacy laws, Canadian privacy laws, etc. Business impact to the cloud computing industry is projected to be as high as US $180B. The net effect is that the need for privacy has emerged as a key decision factor for consu... (more)

The Fourth Digital Wave: The Age of Application Intelligence

This post originally appeared on APM Digest Welcome to the fourth era of digital. The first three periods or ages or phases — call them what you like — were each defined clearly by transformative events. First, the dawn of the personal computer age in April 1977 with the debut of the Apple II (and validated in August 1981 with the introduction of the IBM PC). Next, the beginning of the Internet age when the Netscape browser was released in 1994, which redefined forever the way we connect. Then, on June 29, 2007 — ushered in again by Steve Jobs and Apple — the mobility era began with the unveiling of the first iPhone, which ushered in a “Mobile First” mindset for the masses. And now we’re in the fourth era. This time there’s been no single, monumental event or technology to mark its beginning, though mobility and the cloud are the primary enabling technologies. What...

How To Eat Crow And Like It!

When "LinDows" first appeared I had signed up for the mailing notifications. I kept hearing and reading about all the great things it would do. A Linux operating system with the ability to run Windows programs. - in my mind this was taking the best of both worlds and merging them. But there was secrecy eveloped around this new OS, followed by brouhaha when MS filed an injuction against this new upstart company. I followed the story and developments for many months, and when nothing was ever delivered as originally stated I became suspicous, downright paranoid, that this was just a marketing ploy by MS. In the February issue of Linux Business Week (Vol. 2, issue 2) I stated flat out that I did not think this was a viable company, and that their stated direction was nothing more than a diversionary tactic to foil the public into thinking MS was against this company. I... (more)

The New PDA Profile

J2ME developers have long desired the opportunity to build sophisticated applications for the personal digital assistant (PDA) market, applications common to resource-rich desktop computers. One thing stood in their way: most PDAs lacked resources to efficiently execute those applications. However, that's about to change with the introduction of ARM processor-based PDAs and the PDA Profile that's soon to be incorporated in SDKs and VMs. Improvements in processor design have transformed new PDAs into a powerhouse platform capable of running sophisticated J2ME applications and clients of enterprise Java systems. New PDAs bring higher performance previously known only on desktop computers. With performance and power barriers removed from the new PDA, a committee of the Java Community Process that included PalmSource, the software division of Palm, defined a new profile ... (more)

Unnatural Acts

Ah, television! Where else can you see so much action? Murders are routinely committed and solved, dastardly plots are hatched and foiled, and characters learn some deep life-truth - all within a single hour. This makes the runaway success of ESPN's "World Series of Poker" and the Travel Channel's "World Poker Tour" all the more mysterious. What is it about a group of middleaged men, 11.5-gram clay chips, and 52 brightly colored cards gathered about a large felt-covered table that's so appealing to so many? When I was in a bookstore recently looking for books on poker, the sales clerk looked at me knowingly as I made my purchase. "We've been selling a lot of those," she told me. "Do you watch the games on TV?" I admitted I had. While many people have played "Wednesday night poker" with friends for years, I've been a latecomer to it. Feeling slightly guilty for the ye...

Oracle Re-Raises SAP In Poker Game Over Retek

SAP vs Oracle: SAP Outbids Oracle's $525M Retek Bid, Increases Its Offer to $617M Oracle's Larry Ellison Declares "War" On SAP SAP Reaches Out To Developers (Live on SYS-CON.TV) Review: Oracle Application Server 10g SAP, which thought its acquisition of end-to-end enterprise systems provider Retek for $8.50 per share was in the bag 2 weeks ago, has seen itself re-raised by Oracle, which yesterday trumped SAP's newest $11.00 per share offer by 25 cents. The increased Oracle bid comes despite the fact that the Retek board has already unanimously accepted SAP's $11.00 offer. Commentators are saying that they expect SAP to walk away from the deal. Larry Ellison meantime declared: "Our North American applications business is larger than SAP's. We intend to defend our number one position." As Forbes.com noted, "Retek is already an Oracle partner and a customer. In fact, on ... (more)
