Report reveals Top 10 most-confusing tech buzzwords

Report reveals Top 10 most-confusing tech buzzwords
Posted on Monday, August 14, 2017 in Uncategorized

Sunday, March 27, 2005

Danville, California – The California-based Engligh language tracker, Global Language Monitor, released its 2005 list of most confusing – yet frequently cited – high tech buzzwords to be “HTTP,” “Voice Over IP” (VoIP), and “Megapixel.” Closely following were “Plasma,” “Robust,” “WORM” and “Emoticon.”

In early March, the group used a predictive index computer algorithm to track specific words and phrases in the media and on the Internet. They were tracked in relation to frequency, contextual usage and appearance in global media outlets.

The Global Language Monitor claims to analyze and catalogue trends in word usage and word choices, focusing on the linguistic impact on various cultures. The GLM says it relies upon a global network of volunteer linguists, professional wordsmiths and other bibliophiles to monitor the trends in the evolution and demise of world languages.

GLM’s list, in order of frequency of use, of the most-confusing technology terms with the group’s explanation as to why they are faulty follows:

  1. HTTP – HyperText Transfer Protocol is the standard protocol used for transmitting web pages (which are written in HTML (HyperText Markup Language)), not text written while hyper on too much Starbucks coffee. There are more than 1 billion references to HTTP on the web alone.
  2. Voice over IP – Voice over Internet Protocol, (pronounced voyp, similar to Detroit) is a way of transmitting voice data over the Internet. VoIP is becoming more popular as services such as Skype offer people free voice communication with anyone with a broad-band connection.
  3. Megapixel – Approximately one million pixels, not a single, big pixel (“mega” is the metric system prefix for million). “Pixel” itself is a technical term which means “picture element”. Digital pictures consist of a grid of millions of pixels, which are square or rectangular dots, each having a single colour.
  4. Plasma – A plasma display (commonly used in televisions) is a flat, lightweight surface with a grid of millions of tiny glass bubbles containing plasma. A digitally controlled electric current flows through the bubbles causing the plasma inside to glow various colours. Plasma displays have nothing to do with blood plasma.
  5. Robust – Robustness generally means “it won’t break easily.” It supposedly describes computer programs or hardware that have been well-tested and demonstrated to not crash or fail often, but since it is a vague term by nature (how robust is robust?) it is frequently used by marketing types regardless.
  6. WORM – While a worm is a type of computer virus, WORM stands for ’Write Once, Read Many’. It describes a file system primarily used for optical disks, such as CDs and DVDs. For example, CD-Rs can only be written (or “burned”) once but afterwards can be read many times (otherwise you could only listen to your music CD once). This excludes re-writable CDs which can be written many times.
  7. Emoticon – Emoticon stands for emotional icon. An emoticon is a sequence of characters that look visually like a face and are used in text chat to convey emotion. The most common emoticon is the smiley face – 🙂 – which looks like two eyes and a mouth turned 90 degrees.
  8. Best of Breed – Not to be confused with the Westminster Dog Show, a best-of-breed product is a personalized solution made of components from various manufacturers; in other words, it’s a sort of high tech ‘mix-and-match’.
  9. Viral Marketing – A recent marketing trend which relies on word-of-mouth to spread, rather than traditional advertising strategies. It is called “viral” because as people talk about it, the marketing message “spreads” to new people, who in turn inform others, and so on, which is how viruses spread. The Burger King “Subservient Chicken” campaign is considered an example of viral marketing. Computer viruses used by spammers to turn desktop computers into “zombie” spam relays are something completely different.
  10. Data Migration – Data migration is an idealistic (though usually impossible) concept where data can be used by different versions of the program in which it was created (newer or older). The migration (migration means “to move”) refers to the fact that the data is moved from one version (or program) to another without difficulty or loss of information. It is a subset of backward and forward compatibility.

Other terms being tracked included “client/server,” “solution,” “paradigm,” “backward compatible,” and the “STUN protocol.”

Tuesday, June 6, 2006

Google has launched an online spreadsheet site, in a private beta.

The site will allow spreadsheets to be shared between up to 10 users, which is aimed to be useful to teams and small businesses. “Many people already organise information into spreadsheets. Where they are struggling is to share it” said the product manager, Jonathan Rochelle.

Google recently bought the online word-processor Writely, launched a calendar product, as well as a desktop search tool. Many see this as them straying into Microsoft‘s markets.

Google Spreadsheets uses very advanced AJAX (Asynchronous Javascript And Xml) and Client Side Scripting to mimic very effectively it’s desktop counterparts’ functions.

It is surprisingly fast, has very good formatting and advanced formula support, but best of all it has complete support for Microsoft Excel .xls files, and very good collaboration: just enter the e-mail address and you can share easily.

Suzuki Brand Integration Problems Encountered In China}

Posted on Wednesday, July 12, 2017 in Car Sales

Submitted by: Lanbo Jiang

When it was agreed that the Chang’an Suzuki and Changhe Suzuki verge of merger, the Changan Automotive Group and Suzuki but had begun playing the “Tai Chi.” Chang’an Suzuki aspects of the merger with the two joint venture companies avoided the issue, but stressed that only seek to present a unified sales, while for the merger of his previous high profile merger of Suzuki brand in China is undergoing a delicate line changes.As Japan’s largest minicar maker Suzuki’s plant in dozens of countries around the world, and made in India, 90% of the market. However, Suzuki’s success in the Chinese market has been unable to open their mouths. In 2009, Changan Suzuki and Changhe in two joint venture companies sold only 200,000. Which, although Chang’an Suzuki sold 150,000, but net profit margin was only 0.9%.

Last year in November, soldiers loaded the Group restructuring Air Group’s automotive assets to be included in Chang’an Changhe Suzuki Group. Suzuki’s Chinese joint venture objects, from the Changhe, Changan, into the same Changan, Changhe Suzuki and Changan Suzuki has become the de facto “family.”Chang in the industry on its two joint ventures combined voice, the Suzuki does not seem eager to push Chang’an Suzuki and Changhe Suzuki integration.

Suzuki (China) General Manager of bottles of the Koji said: “Suzuki regardless of how many partners, both in the Chinese market with a unified brand image marketing, Suzuki’s principles and policies will not change the number of partners to change.” This Chang’an Suzuki and Changhe Suzuki to the prospects for the merger became increasingly vague.However, it is certain that in Changan internal integration of the two joint venture companies there are disputes, although the Group CEO Chang Ping Xu stay once in the last year made clear that the two will certainly be re Suzuki joint venture, but after a lapse of 4 months later, the attitude of Changan Group has become cautious.

“Suzuki joint venture future of the two ‘combo’ claims and no real progress, after all, under a master group, together with the sub is not the main thing, currently the most important thing is do Chang’an integration within, and for joint venture will depend on whether the merger ultimately benefit. “one analyst said.In addition, the Chang’an, the most pressing issue right now is a joint venture with PSA negotiations entered a critical stage, internal and Hafei, Changhe has no substantive progress in the integration, which allow Suzuki brand in China is at a standstill merger .

It is understood that, in Chang an internal, although the Chang’an Suzuki and Changhe Suzuki’s sales channels, joint procurement and platform sharing ?? integration has put on the agenda with the integration of the brand without formation of a clear program Yi Zhi.However, in Chang’an and Suzuki did not take the next step before, the market situation has quietly shifted. Changan Auto to the latest sales data shows that a quarter of total sales of 706,900 Changan Automobile, up 75.92 percent. Following the first two months later, still firmly holds runner up position of China’s auto rating. The Chang’an Suzuki and Changhe Suzuki Chang’an guards are still shouldering the heavy responsibility of small car market. Of these, Changan Suzuki in March sales of more than 18,000, a quarter of the total sales of more than 53 000; Changhe Suzuki are also continuous over 10,000 monthly sales.

As the bottle The Koji said, “a joint venture partner, brand image is very easy to establish. But there are two partners, sales on the increase.” Clearly, in front of the brand image, focusing on the development of the Suzuki mini car sales more want to see the improvement.The industry believes that the merger Suzuki brand in China may be a double edged sword, if Chang’an Suzuki and Changhe Suzuki was unable to push forward the integration, do not rule out the possibility has been vacant for a Suzuki car has once again ended the idea of marriage, and, already Suzuki, Volkswagen cars for joint will be expected to choose rival Changan SAIC and FAW, which appears to Chang’an not want to see.

Ozzy Osbourne’s personal possessions fetch $800,000 for charity

Ozzy Osbourne’s personal possessions fetch $800,000 for charity
Posted on Wednesday, July 12, 2017 in Uncategorized

Sunday, December 2, 2007

American heavy metal performer Ozzy Osbourne, who became famous as the lead vocalist for Black Sabbath and later as a solo act, has raised more than US$800,000 for The Sharon Osbourne Colon Cancer Program, founded by his spouse Sharon Osbourne at the Cedars Sinai Hospital, by auctioning off personal items.

A number of the items that he auctioned off over the two day period have been seen on his reality TV show The Osbournes, which featured home life with Sharon, Ozzy and their two children. Amongst some of the higher-priced items were a carved walnut Victorian-style custom built pool table which raised $11,250, a painting from Edourad Drouot which fetched $10,500, a pair of Ozzy’s famous round glasses which raised $5,250 and a dog bed given to Sharon by Elton John which sold for $2,375.

Some more famous items were also amongst the 500 lots offered. Ozzy’s black satin coat, complete with bat-wing cape, raised $3,300 and a hand-painted floral cup used regularly on The Osbournes made $1,625. A bronze plaque of a demon’s head that was regularly seen in its position adorning the front door of their house had been expected to go for $800 to $1,200instead raised $8,750. A wire model of the Eiffel Tower from on the kitchen table sold for $10,000, while skull-covered trainers Ozzy had worn reached $2,625. Bidders came from as far away as Germany to buy what they could from his mansion in Beverly Hills, California.

However, three cars included in the auction failed to attract bidders and did not sell. They were a 2006 Bentley Continental Flying Spur, estimated at $160,000 to $180,000, a 2005 Cadillac CTS-V sedan estimated at $30,000 to $40,000 and a 1950 Oldsmobile Futuramic 88 Club Coupe previously owned by author Danielle Steel estimated at $40,000 to $50,000. Sharon had earlier said of the cars “We’re not great car people. They really don’t do a lot for us.

Darren Julien, president of Julien’s Auctions, which organised the two-day sale, said “It did very well. It raised some good money for a very worthy cause.”

“For a celebrity garage sale, it was pretty spectacular.,” he went on. He also commented on the fact that there was fierce competition for the many artworks included. “We had Ozzy fans bidding against these sophisticated fine art buyers, which you don’t see every day. For the most part the metalheads were outbidding the art crowd.”

Wikinews interviews Rocky De La Fuente, U.S. Democratic Party presidential candidate

Wikinews interviews Rocky De La Fuente, U.S. Democratic Party presidential candidate
Posted on Tuesday, July 11, 2017 in Uncategorized

Thursday, March 31, 2016

Businessman Rocky De La Fuente took some time to speak with Wikinews about his campaign for the U.S. Democratic Party’s 2016 presidential nomination.

The 61-year-old De La Fuente resides in San Diego, California, grew up in Tijuana, and owns multiple businesses and properties throughout the world. Since getting his start in the automobile industry, De La Fuente has branched out into the banking and real estate markets. Despite not having held or sought political office previously, he has been involved in politics, serving as the first-ever Hispanic superdelegate to the 1992 Democratic National Convention.

De La Fuente entered the 2016 presidential race last October largely due to his dissatisfaction with Republican front-runner Donald Trump. He argues he is a more accomplished businessman than Trump, and attacks Trump as “a clown,” “a joke,” “dangerous,” and “in the same category as Hitler.” Nevertheless, De La Fuente’s business background begets comparisons with Trump. The Alaskan Midnight Sun blog described him as the Democrats’ “own Donald Trump.”

While receiving only minimal media coverage, he has campaigned actively, and according to the latest Federal Election Commission filing, loaned almost US$ 4 million of his own money to the campaign. He has qualified for 48 primary and caucus ballots, but has not yet obtained any delegates to the 2016 Democratic National Convention. Thus far, according to the count at The Green Papers, De La Fuente has received 35,406 votes, or 0.23% of the total votes cast. He leads among the many lesser-known candidates but trails both Senator Bernie Sanders who has received nearly 6.5 million votes and front-runner Hillary Clinton who has just shy of 9 million votes.

With Wikinews reporter William S. Saturn?, De La Fuente discusses his personal background, his positions on political issues, his current campaign for president, and his political future.
