Waiting for web 3.0

Waiting for web 3.0

We all know that the first release of a software is to avoid. Few or bugged functionalities. Only usable by early adopters.

The second one is better, but still need some maturation.

The third one, is obviously the mature one and a good basis for future releases.

So wait for Web 3.0...

Apple is going green and claim it

Some months (years?) ago, Apple was bashed due to the use of non environmental safe components in their device. It seems that this time has changed and that now, Apple is putting its ecological policy as a strong selling point.
First with a little anecdotic green leave for the well-known apple logo as a reference to the earth day (today) but also by many other initiatives:
  • A clear reference to Samsung in commercial ads with the slogan "There are some things we want every company to copy" promoting green energy by showing solar panels,
  • A Tim Cook's video about Apple's efforts for environment (see video on YouTube),
  • An article on Lisa Jackson on Wired (see article on Wired),
  • A selection of ecological apps on AppStore.
Clearly, Apple took some measures to avoid a new ecological bashing and make it become a commercial advantage in the future.

A good news for the planet, obviously...

Grams, le frère jumeau obscur de Google

Pour toutes les personnes à la recherche d'un produit licite, il y a Google. Et pour les autres, il y'a Grams...
Avec un look & feel en tout point ressemblant à Google, Grams propose de manière à l'utilisateur l'accès à des produits illicites (drogues, armes, faux papiers... - ça y est je suis repéré par la NSA) en toute discrétion.

Là ou l'affaire prend toute sa saveur, c'est que la condition sine qua non pour acceder à Grams est de passer par le réseau TOR (The Onion Ring) dont l'objectif est de transmettre de façon anonyme les flux internet.
Or ce réseau alternatif est financé pour 3/5ème par le gouvernement américain, pour 1/5ème par des bénévoles et pour le reste par des fondations et donateurs divers dont... Google.

Je me fais alors la reflexion suivante : en creant Internet, l'homme a donné vie à un monde parallèle, virtuel mais néanmoins en interaction avec son réel. Avait-il alors conscience que l'Abel ainsi engendré aurait un jour son Caïn? Que nous réserve ce "Shadow Internet" dont les buts libertaires éminemment louables permettent d'engendrer de tels dérives?

The Holy Grail: How to develop seamlessly in the cloud | VentureBeat |Cloud | by Jay Simons

In this article, the author provide very concrete information to build quickly and for an affordable price a complete development (and running) platform. Quite interesting as soon as you see cloud as the future toolset for development team.
I would have added Microsoft Azure to the panel of solutions presented here.

Journalist: I was assaulted on street for wearing Google Glass - fromCNET

What surprise me in such a case is not the violence of the reaction itself, but the fact that it seems people are going mad about technology progress.
As if it was too much for them now to stand it. Nevertheless, I see it only as the next step of the last decades technological advance.

Google Patents Tiny Cameras Embedded In Contact Lenses from TechCrunch

This is the natural next step after Google glass : contact lenses. When you see how violent may be the reactions of some people in front of Google glass wearer, you may imagine that this would be obviously a more discrete way to capture videos.
Such a thing also confirm Google's interest for health stuff by the way.

Androïd 4.1.1 affected by Heartbleed...

So if you have such an OS on your device, you may wish to upgrade to a newer version. Would it be sufficient?

No, it won't.

Google has issued a fix, and it is now up to its partners to implement it. In the meantime, if you want to check your device, Lookout issued a specific app for this : Heart Bleed Detector

So, now you know...

Google Glass : elles seront mises en vente le 15 avril aux Etats-Unis

C'est une nouvelle façon de gérer la pénurie permettant également au consommateur final de toucher du doigt le produit de demain... Et donc d'obtenir un retour d'expérience pertinent.

Reste une question : quelles sont les applications disponibles sur ces Google glass pour le tout un chacun? Si elles s'avèrent limitées, le retour pourrait en être défavorable.
