  • Siri vs Google Assistant

    The era of AI competition has just begun but not yet at its climax. Which is the best smartphone voice control solution for consumers?
    Apple has Siri, Microsoft revealed Cortana, Google has Assistant and Amazon has Alexa which is popular on its Echo devices.
    Now Apple has its deputy of Siri, the Google assistant. The great Google AI has made its ways to Apple iPhone smartphones, and as the two has different capabilities, we consider having a poll of which is smarter.
    Siri vs. Google Assistant.
    Considering Assistant, which is the Google’s virtual assistant technology, you can use it to do a lot of stuff like launching apps, searching the web, sending messages, answering questions, daily task and much more just like Apple’s Siri.
    What will happen now to Siri since Google Assistance is on iPhones?
    Siri has some advantages over Assistant since it is deeply integrated into Apple’s iOS and can do a lot more than Assistance in matters around iPhone ecosystem.
    Furthermore, Assistant is tirelessly fighting with Amazon Echo to dominate Smart Home devices.
    Then we ask: Can Siri withstand Google Assistant on iPhones?
    Considering some few things, both of them functions pretty well, but at the end of the day, there must be a winner. Siri beats Assistance in some areas while Assistant beats Siri a lot more in most of how it interacts with the user and how it curates its answers more smartly than Siri.
    We can say that Assistant is far more advanced with its contextual understanding of language. But that’s how I look at it. If you have been using both Siri and Assistant, then you might have realized its similarities, accuracies, and smartness of the two voice AI.
    Well, Siri is always listening on iPhones. Holding down the Home Button will automatically launch Siri or just say “Hey Siri” to awaken her. As for Google Assistance, you have to launch the app to use it.
    Understanding how both interacts to user questions is crucial, but it involves some exciting fun. For example, if you ask:
    “How do you say “I’d like a glass of white wine?” in Spanish?”
    Google Assistant beats Siri here. Siri tries to provide Bing search results to our query which I didn’t want.
    Source: CNBC
     
    “Play a Metallica music video on YouTube.”
    Great.  Assistant is far smarter with that question. If I were using Chrome Cast-enabled TV, I would have played the video. Siri was not able to find the request.
    Source: CNBC
     
    There are some instances where both tie in most of the questions like asking “how long will it take me to get home?” while at times they both fail with some questions like “What’s Tesla’s market cap?”
    Siri also has a big win when it comes to Uber query. With most of the questions and its responses, we can finally say that Google Assistance is smarter than Siri.
    Well, as for you, how do you judge Google Assistance on iPhone over Siri? Which one do you prefer using on your iPhone?

    Kingston's First NVMe SSD, The KC1000

    Kingston has reintroduced the KC1000 NVMe SSD. We first saw the drive in January at CES, but the company wanted to hold the details until the official launch. Seemingly, that is in the very near future--mid June.
    The KC series has historically targeted system builders and corporations upgrading systems en masse. Kingston released several client SSDs under the KC brand, and many of them were tuned for increased stability and longevity but share similar hardware with models from the standard consumer product line. The KC1000 press release seems to turn the tables and take this series in a slightly different direction.
     
    "The demands of today’s performance power users are constantly being put to the test as new data-intensive applications push the boundaries of what can be achieved with even the market’s high performance professional workstations and most powerful gaming rigs,” said Ariel Perez, SSD business manager, Kingston. “KC1000 is the perfect solution to meet the needs of media and design professionals, gaming enthusiasts and anyone who needs ultra-low latency storage performance to end data bottlenecks. This native NVMe device offers one of the industry’s most powerful storage solutions for high-resolution content delivery, virtual reality applications, accelerated game play or a competitive edge for the creative professional on tight deadlines.”
     
    Gamers, power users, and enthusiasts have always been directed to the HyperX brand, but in recent years that series shifted to target gamers exclusively. Kingston calls the KC1000 an "Ultimate Storage Upgrade for HD Video, PC Enthusiasts, Gaming and More." The release later identified a list of specific application categories the series will perform well in:
     
    High-resolution video editing Virtual and augmented reality applications CAD software applications Streaming media Graphically intensive video games Data visualization Real-time analytics  
    It seems the KC series may begin to target a wider audience with the introduction of the first Kingston NVMe SSD.
     
     
    The KC1000 series ships in three capacity sizes, but there are a total of six product SKUs. For each capacity, the drives ships as either a bare drive or with a half-height, half-length (HHHL) add-in card adapter. The performance coming from the Phision PS5007-E7 controller paired with Toshiba 15nm planar NAND looks strong. The sequential read performance reaches 2,700 MB/s, and the sequential writes are 900 MB/s for the 240GB model and 1,600 MB/s for the two largest-capacity drives. Random performance is also impressive, with up to 290,000 IOPS (225,000 for the 240GB). Users can reach up to 190,000 random write IOPS.
     
    Kingston backs the KC1000 series with a generous five-year limited warranty with ample endurance figures that reach as high as 1PB for the 960GB drive.

    Amazon Chime goes after WebEx, Skype for Business, and GoToMeeting

    Companies looking for a new video- and teleconferencing system have a fresh face to turn to in the market: Amazon Web Services.
    On Monday, the public cloud provider announced the launch of Amazon Chime, a new service that’s designed to compete with the likes of WebEx, Skype for Business and GoToMeeting. It’s a powerful swing at some very entrenched enterprise software players by the public cloud provider.
     
    AWS launched the service with native applications for Windows, MacOS, iOS, and Android. Chime’s infrastructure is based in the U.S., but Gene Farrell, AWS’s vice president of enterprise applications, said that the service can be accessed worldwide.
     
    One of Chime’s interesting features is a visual roster of meeting participants that includes information about any people who have distracting background noise interrupting the call. In a meeting without a moderator, any user can choose to mute one of their fellow participants so that the rest on the call don’t have to listen to a barking dog or the sound of typing.
     
    People who get muted in that way will get notified that their mic has been blocked, and can choose to unmute themselves whenever they want to.
    In addition, users can call into a Chime conference call using a regular phone number, in the event they can’t access the service’s app for one reason or another. In the future, Farrell said that AWS also plans to add support for person to person calls over a traditional telephone network.
     
    Chime is part of AWS’s portfolio of applications focused on helping business users with their work. That set of services started with the company’s WorkSpaces cloud virtual desktop as a service offering, and now includes AWS’s WorkDocs office suite, WorkMail email service and QuickSight business intelligence service.
     
    The service will be available in three pricing tiers. Basic offers users one-on-one voice and video calls, plus group chat capabilities. Plus costs $2.50 per user per month, and adds support for screen sharing and integration with identity management systems through SAML and Active Directory.
     
    Pro costs $15 per user per month, and lets users do all of the above, plus host meetings with up to 100 participants. Users at the other two pricing tiers can join conferences set up by Pro users, so companies can mix and match licenses to minimize Chime’s cost.
     
    Amazon offers a free trial of all the Pro features for 30 days. After that expires, customers can choose to keep using the Basic tier, or pay for more advanced functionality. Farrell said that Chime could reduce a company’s unified communications bill by up to 70 percent.
     
    Companies with existing in-room conferencing systems made by companies like Polycom and Crestron will be able to set those devices up to integrate with Chime.
     
    To help with adoption, AWS is working with Level 3 Communications and Vonage. Level 3 will market Chime to its enterprise customers, while Vonage will work with small businesses. Both offerings will be available in the second quarter of this year.
     
    Amazon has already been testing Chime with a handful of customers, including fashion retailer Brooks Brothers. The company, which was founded in 1818, has rolled out Chime to 90 percent of its corporate staff.

    Improvements to Magento’s Extension Quality Program

    When Magento launched Marketplace, they made a promise to their community to deliver high-quality extensions and themes. They have been working hard to deliver on that promise.
     
    Magento currently invests in ensuring high extension quality by strictly adhering to the  following checks for every new extension submission request:
     
    Business review: Ensures that each extension solves a business problem and delivers rich and unique functionality.
    Tech review: Detects the presence of viruses, malware, and any indications of plagiarism. Ensures that the package meets Composer packaging and format requirements along with all coding standards.
    Marketing review: Verifies that all documentation and appropriate information is provided for each extension.
     
    Now, in 2017, one of Magento’s top priorities is to take improvements to the Extension Quality Program (EQP) to the next level.
    Here’s what is happening:
    For every extension submitted to Marketplace, Magento will add an automated production verification script and additional manual QA. This will verify that the extension installs without error, is configurable (as applicable), operates as expected, and does not break any Magento functionality.
     
    For all the extensions currently in Marketplace, Magento will re-certify each extension through their new validation steps. Every extension will be installed on Magento 2 and support PHP versions. During the installation, Magento will also switch to production mode. Extensions that fail this step will be notified accordingly and will be suspended from Marketplace unless they promptly deliver any fixes required.
     
    Magento have given early preview of this process and error logs produced by the new validation step to some of their existing technology partners, senior Magento developers, and experts in the community, and they have incorporated their feedback, so magento are confident that you’ll find it easy to understand and take action. 
    Every extension in Marketplace will be held to the highest standards.
     
    Offering such advanced quality checks to every single extension will initially add time to their reviews. The faster you respond, the faster you can get through the whole review process.
     
    act now to ensure your extensions do not get removed from the magento marketplace.

    DPWS Media goes HTTPS

    we have found that most of the internet and websites now are going HTTPs for secure connections to websites so we have decided to do the very same, with this in made you know that when you are visiting DPWS Media you know that you are secured.
     
    Suddenly your browser address bar says HTTPS instead of HTTP. What's going on? Is your information safe?
     
    Good news. Your information is safe. The website you are working with has made sure that no one can steal your information.
    Instead of HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP), this website uses HyperText Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS).
     
    Using HTTPS, the computers agree on a "code" between them, and then they scramble the messages using that "code" so that no one in between can read them. This keeps your information safe from hackers.
     
    They use the "code" on a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), sometimes called Transport Layer Security (TLS) to send the information back and forth.
     
    How does HTTP work? How is HTTPS different from HTTP? This tutorial will teach you about SSL, HTTP and HTTPS.
     
    How Does HTTP Work?
    In the beginning, network administrators had to figure out how to share the information they put out on the Internet.
    They agreed on a procedure for exchanging information and called it HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP).
     
    Once everyone knew how to exchange information, intercepting on the Internet was not difficult. So knowledgeable administrators agreed upon a procedure to protect the information they exchanged. The protection relies on SSL Certificate to encrypt the online data. Encryption means that the sender and recipient agree upon a "code" and translate their documents into random-looking character strings.
     
    The procedure for encrypting information and then exchanging it is called HyperText Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS).
    With HTTPS if anyone in between the sender and the recipient could open the message, they still could not understand it. Only the sender and the recipient, who know the "code," can decipher the message.
     
    Humans could encode their own documents, but computers do it faster and more efficiently. To do this, the computer at each end uses a document called an "SSL Certificate" containing character strings that are the keys to their secret "codes."
    SSL certificates contain the computer owner's "public key."
     
    The owner shares the public key with anyone who needs it. Other users need the public key to encrypt messages to the owner. The owner sends those users the SSL certificate, which contains the public key. The owner does not share the private key with anyone.
     
    The security during the transfer is called the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS).
    The procedure for exchanging public keys using SSL Certificate to enable HTTPS, SSL and TLS is called Public Key Infrastructure (PKI).
     
     

    5 Reasons You Need SEO

    Below is five reason why you need SEO for your website or business and is worth the time to invest for the long term.
     
    1. SEO To improve the user experience
     
    The main reason of a good SEO strategy is to appeal to both users who are searching and search engines through out all devices. This puts a searcher at the top of mind because you would want to get your website ranked as high as possible, to contain quality, easy to search / navigate and works on all devices such as laptops, desktops and mobiles devices. This improves the user experience and makes it better for the people who are searching to learn more about your website or business.
     
    2 SEO Insights / Expand
     
    A great SEO strategy is to analyzing your reports and making adjustments based on what you find. For example, if you’re sharing your content on social media sites, you can check the data on who is interacting with your content, viewing web pages and possibly identify a new demographic you hadn’t previously targeted. You can also look at your organic traffic to see if visitors from nearby cities are looking at your website that you should expand your marketing efforts to include. Using the data from your SEO strategy can provide valuable insights that may just help you expand your website or business.
     
    3 Longer visibility
     
    Unlike PPC (Pay per Click) or display advertising campaigns where your budget is likely focused on showing ads on certain days and times, SEO can provide better visibility for your website. So, even if a searcher is looking for products or services similar to yours when your ads aren’t being shown, they can see your website in organic search results or social media pages.
     
    4 Improve ROI
     
    Every marketing budget comes down to money. What did you pay for what you got? While PPC does offer instant visibility into where your marketing budget is being spent, it only accesses a fraction of the market available for a specific keyword. Coupling PPC with an SEO strategy allows you to spread out your budget and capture potential customers searching outside of your PPC keyword strategy, which can improve ROI and net you more customers.
     
    SEO is a valuable marketing strategy to help you reach marketing goals like attracting new customers, improving the effectiveness of your PPC campaign, and increasing your visibility online. Learn more about SEO on our website.
     
    5. Reputation Online
     
    Reputation management goes hand-in-hand with SEO. Statistics show that most customers and visitors trust an online review as much as they would trust a recommendation from a friend. Because of this, search engine algorithms readily show online review sites when users conduct searches. Putting a focus on reputation management efforts can increase your chances of attracting potential customers and help you occupy more spots on Search Engine results.
