Welcome to the latest installment in the battle of two tech titans. Last week Alphabet announced that Nest is being merged into Google. See Fortune's summary: Google Will Absorb Nest Developers. This is the denouement to the saga that started in April, tied to infighting between the Google and Nest teams. I dissected this "silo-itis" in Why #Nest is Down, #Amazon Up, in #IoT for the #Connected Home. Now some unsurprising new developments since Tony Fadell, the CEO of Nest, resigned in June. Here's what Google is trying to achieve by "re-absorbing" the troubled Nest group: A single boss: Hiroshi Lockheimer A unified IoT platform: includes the Google Home smart speaker and other Home products A more coordinated strategy (tbd) to address the Smart Home market Cost efficiencies and economies of scale Less squabbling These are good moves. But they still don't solve the un... (more)

Surviving the Coming 'Hackerpocalypse' | @CloudExpo #API #Cloud #Security

With all the excellent training available on television today, we are all now well prepared to deal with the coming Zombie Apocalypse.  Our failure as a society lies, however, in our misunderstanding of the nature of the cybersecurity challenge. This failure threatens us all and our survival will depend on society’s ability to deal with the evolution and maturation of the changing enterprise cybersecurity challenge. If you’re completely oblivious to the living dead threat, a zombie apocalypse refers to a widespread (usually global) rise of zombies hostile to human life.  The zom... (more)

WebRTC Reborn By @Dan_Jenkins | @ThingsExpo #IoT #RTC #WebRTC

WebRTC Reborn Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was.

Why Digital Performance Management Will Be a Game Changer for Online Retailers | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps

Why Digital Performance Management Will Be a Game Changer for Online Retailers By Ann Ruckstuhl Amidst the hustle and bustle that was the recent eTail West, one thing was clear to me: many online retailers haven’t figured out the empirical relationship between customer experience and digital performance. Why? Many brands simply do not pay much attention to the infrastructure that powers their digital business. Yet behind every interaction between consumers and online retailers is a vast network of websites, mobile apps, third-party service providers, routers, databases, servers,... (more)

Google ToolBar PageRank vs Actual Page Rank

Most of us are unaware of the fact that Google toolbar Page Rank (PR) varies from Google actual (internal) Page Rank. Within Google's actual databases, each of your pages is stored and does have some form of numerical Page Rank calculated value. This is quite likely to differ from the toolbar page rank. It seems to be confusing as most of us refer to the toolbar for the relevancy of the page but in fact the actual Page Rank values are some decimal numbers such as 3.831 which might be shown as PR 4/10 or PR 3/10 on the toolbar scale.
