Whether a woman participates in tech as an engineer, a developer, a marketer, or in some other capacity, there is room enough for all of us. It is a difficult industry that is rapidly changing, and we have no business making things even more difficult on each other.
With an estimated 1.6 million apps available for Apple products alone, it is easy to end up getting sucked in by time-wasters that do not actually provide any real value. Fortunately, it is still possible to find extremely helpful apps that can help you boost your productivity.
For the sake of the Al Jazeera journalists and media freedom in Egypt at large, Amnesty International is working to resuscitate the lifeline between the truth and truth seekers.
The Luddites were producers, crafts people, makers and tinkerers. The word luddite might be used negatively by the tech-savvy among us - but like the 19th century activists, we need to start thinking about our labour and makers rights in the new biotechnological era.
While estimated sales of 3.6 million units in the first quarter after its launch would be a success for most products, it may not be for Apple. Apple set the bar very high for itself with the very successful launches of the iPhone and iPad.

The undertow of China's slackening economy and the mounting tide of refugees pushing through border after border in Europe put the world on edge this week. After spiraling down, volatile stock markets rallied back, for now. . .
Writing from Beijing, Fred Hu argues that what we are witnessing is China's shift toward the "new normal" of a slower growth paradigm focused on domestic consumption instead of investment and export-led growth. He expresses confidence that his country will weather the storm, writing, "it is a loser's game to bet against China's leaders." Nobel laureate Michael Spence locates the culprit of market volatility in the flood of funds unleashed by low interest rates looking for higher returns, which has led to the gap between a financial bubble and the real economy now undergoing a correction.

Even if you learned to picture your audience naked to calm your nerves, you are going to need to say something of value. You can have brilliant ideas, but if they are stuck inside or wrapped in too much junk, they serve you no good.
Let's face it -- situations change. When you started your company, you knew the market, had a plan and probably executed it with precision and focus. Even if you did everything right and had a good, solid run, you may find yourself facing a changing business environment.
Whether you are a part of the database or not, this hack could affect you. Millions of e-mail addresses, home addresses, credit cards and other information are contained within the leaked database.
I have a friend who is constantly texting me and asking for the address of restaurants or show times of movies. The fact he could glean the very same information using his phone to go online instead of texting eludes him.

By Noah J. Nelson (@noahjnelson) One new game is exploring two final frontiers: space, and equity crowdfunding. It can be hard to get excited about crowdfunding campaigns--especially video game crowdfunding campaigns--these days. At least for the right reasons. When it's not business as usual the stories are usually...
Companies who are claiming an interest in diversity must do more than attempt to change hearts. Instead they must invest in a systems approach to combatting bias in hiring decisions.
The problem with almost all of these features are their expectations of us as human beings. They're hopelessly unrealistic. I, for example, do not want my family to know where I am all the time. For starters there's the basic issue of privacy, and, secondly, if they did know they'd probably start wondering why I don't have a drinking problem.
Laura Hale's answer argues "Is (sic) the contents inside the leak newsworthy? The answer is no." I have to disagree. High-profile Ashley Madison members have been identified from numerous walks of life, notably including Josh Duggar.
Wearable technology is getting a lot of attention these days and for good reason. These devices are becoming increasingly more integrated into our daily lives and are providing new insights into our personal activity and fitness levels.
