Tech & Science Facebook Climate Change Social Media Weather really can affect our mood—or at least the way we express our emotions on social media, according to a study published Wednesday in PLOS One. The study analyzed more than 3.5 billion social media posts, mostly from Facebook, with a standard protocol that uses a list of words that are associated with positive and negative emotions. In general, people use more “happy” words in their social media posts when the temperature outside is over 60 degrees Fahrenheit, and ideally between 68 and 77 degrees. In Savannah, Georgia, that means Wednesday, April 25 really is the perfect date. At 11 a.m., it was 66 degrees with a forecast high of about 78 degrees. So, not too cold, not too hot. All you need is a light jacket. (Yes, Miss Congeniality fans, that’s for you. But this paper wasn't published on this date on purpose, the authors noted.) It’s also sunny in Savannah and the humidity is below 80 … [Read more...] about It’s Not Just You: Dark Clouds Are Linked with Darker Moods

THE end is nigh, if some conspiracy theorists are to be believed. They clam that a mysterious planet known as Nibiru, or Planet X, is due to pass close to Earth - and it will bring all sorts of drama with it. Here's what the theory is all about... Is Nibiru home to aliens? Linguist Zecharia Sitchin's controversial 1976 book Twelfth Planet claims that Nibiru is inhabited by an alien race called the Anunnaki, who are referred to in the Bible as the Nephilim. He argued that ancient texts claimed that these mysterious space travellers had come to Earth looking for gold and other minerals. Controversially, he also writes that the Anunnaki were unwilling to do the hard work themselves, so create a new slave race by blending their DNA with humans'. His work forms the basis of many 'ancient astronaut' theories, that claim aliens visited the Earth and changed the path of human history - least of all by building the pyramids. Sitchin also claimed that Nibiru has an elongated orbit around the … [Read more...] about Is Planet X real, what does Nibiru mean, when was the world supposed to end and what is the SpaceX conspiracy theory?
Cloud is becoming an imperative for many organisations, driven by the C-suite as they realise its potential to provide business benefits. Their IT team know that moving to cloud, like any other major IT transformation, is not a quick fix but requires strategic planning. They need to move to cloud in a staged manner whilst continuing to deliver what the business requires without interruption and avoiding any unpleasant surprises or unforeseen costs along the way. The question they face is: which applications to move first? Should they start with the ‘easy’ ones such as desktop productivity applications, which for the majority of organisations will be Microsoft Office, or begin with their largest applications such as their ERP systems and work systematically through to the small niche applicationsAs with any strategy question, there is no one size fits all solution. However, there is a simple way to work out the priorities for your organisation in order to create a … [Read more...] about Which applications should drive your cloud strategy?

In the wake of Apple's spring iPad and education event, I've had a lot of questions about how the 2018 iPad fits in next to the 10.5-inch and second-generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro line — does giving Pencil support to the base-model iPad eliminate the need for a Pro-level iPad? In short, no. But why? Here's how the two models compare, and why you'll probably want to stick with a Pro for more high-level work. Processors & RAM Let's start with the big one: The 2018 iPad features an A10 Fusion chip and 2GB of RAM, while the iPad Pro line rocks the A10X and 4GB of RAM. On paper, this might not look like a huge difference: It's half a version number, right? But the A10X is a huge powerhouse of a chip with some incredible graphics power to throw around. In our Geekbench tests, the A10X 10.5-inch iPad Pro walloped its new sibling: There's only a modest 3904 increase over the 2018 iPad's 3254, but on multi-core, the 2017 iPad Pro line hits 9292 to the 2018 iPad's 5857.

The amount of cloud services being used by businesses around the world is growing, according to a new report by Netskope. However, many of these services aren’t actually enterprise-ready. The average number of cloud services per enterprise rose 1.6 per cent to a total of 1,181, compared to 1,022 the quarter before. But almost all (92.7 per cent) are not enterprise-ready, meaning they don't have what Netskope calls ‘fine-grained control via a cloud access security broker’. The report also looked closer at data ownership, given the impending arrival of GDPR. It revealed that more than two thirds (67.9 per cent) of Netskope customers didn’t specify customer data ownership, while 80.7 per cent of cloud services were said not to have support for encryption at rest. Netskope’s conclusion is that these numbers haven’t changed much in the last quarter, leaving businesses at risk of not complying with GDPR. GDPR, or General Data Protection Regulation, will … [Read more...] about Majority of cloud services ‘not ready for enterprise’
