Google Alphabet and Apple

For years Apple has been the world's most valuable company.  But by the time you read this, Google Alphabet may have already passed it to take the top spot.  If Alphabet does/did dethrone Apple, it will no doubt be due to innovation.

Google's Alphabet keeps taking moonshots, and making them pay off.  Apple, on the other hand, used to rely on the iPad, now it relies on the iPhone.  And yet both are selling less and less each year.
As the digital advertising market booms and demand for smartphones wanes, Alphabet Inc. could soon dethrone Apple as the world's most valuable company.

The Insanely Complicated Logistics of Cage-Free Eggs For All

It all started with a simple request from McDonald's, "We only want to serve our customers cage-free chicken eggs." What seemed like such a simple healthy good for the environment request has now snowballed into a market-changing force of upheaval.

Millions of Farmers are being affected, the entire future of chickens is being impacted, and all because we thought we were being better. But are we? In this careful in-depth article from +Wired far more issues are explored than we normally think of when we eat our egg McMuffins in the morning.

Software With the Most Vulnerabilities in 2015

The software with the most publicly disclosed information security vulnerabilities and exploits in 2015 was Apple. This was written about by +VentureBeat from analysis done by CVE Details of the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures tracked by the National Vulnerability Database.

Although this information may come as a bit of a surprise to some people; Apple has always enjoyed the myth that it does not require anti-virus software, and it is "immune" to hackers and crackers, this never was, and never will be true.

In point of fact, Apple actually takes the top two spots in 2015 for being the most vulnerable software. Just something else to consider the next time you are making a purchasing decision.

As always, if you use an operating system, an Internet browser, or have a cell tel mobile phone; and you do, backup regularly. And update often.

Why the Calorie is Broken

A calorie is a very specific scientific measurement. It is very accurate, and fairly easily calculated. And yet, sometimes, it is no help whatsoever when it comes to losing weight.

If we can't rely on calories to help us to lose weight, then what should we be counting? What do we need to track and keep count of? What should we do?
Calories consumed minus calories burned: it’s the simple formula for weight loss or gain. But dieters often find that it doesn’t work. Cynthia Graber and Nicola Twilley of Gastropod investigate.

Worldwide OS Market Share

Microsoft Windows has approximately 91% of the worldwide market share for operating systems. Apple Mac makes up about 7% and Linux accounts for another 2%.

Windows 10 specifically accounts for 9% of the worldwide market share, or about as much as all Apple's and Linux combined!

That being said, Windows 10 adoption is starting to slow. Will it reach its goal of one billion devices? Only time will tell.

Amazon Web Services

When people use the Internet, chances are they are using Amazon. And no, I don't mean because they are buying something and Amazon Prime is so convenient. Amazon's Data Centers power the Amazon Web Services or AWS, and that powers a lot of the Internet. Whether it is DNS servers, or anything else, chances are it comes from Amazon.

So for all intents and purposes, the Cloud is AWS, and so is the Internet of Things (IoT). But why is it all based in northern Virginia? Home of many Department of Defence top-secret security clearance required government spy agencies?

For that, you need to read the article. And although it is a bit meandering, and slightly strange, even I learned something new reading it. Give it a go.
The company powers much of the Internet, but its cloud facilities are difficult to find.
