When we examine culture and leadership closely, we see that they are two sides of the same coin; neither can really be understood by itself. 
It is very fair to say that Apple is threatened by the potential rise of AI. Google, though, is also threatened by its inability to own customers’ attention. The solution for both companies m…

This is a good read on language dynamism
#Java #Swift #ObjectiveC
I've kept my hat out of the discussions of Swift vs. Objective-C for several reasons, but the main one is that frankly, I've been busy. I ship a product, one that I would consider successful, and recently shipped a major release. What does that mean? It means that debating these types of issues ...

In 2013, China’s research and development spending overtook Europe’s and it is set to outstrip the US’s by 2020.

A recent assessment by the journal Nature revealed that in terms of the number of papers being published, China now ranks second in the world behind only the US.

#Google the crazy #innovation factory - #GoogleATAP

"How are you going to interact with an invisible computer?"

But then somebody sets a smartwatch on the table in front of you. You snap your fingers in the air just a couple of inches away from it. And the digital watch face starts spinning.
"How are you going to interact with an invisible computer?" When you hear a question like that posted in a conference room at a major tech corporation like Google, you expect you're going to be...

#Chromebooks outsold #Macs for the 1st time in US
Google's low-cost Chromebooks outsold Apple's range of Macs for the first time in the US recently. While IDC doesn't typically break out Windows vs. Chromebook sales, IDC analyst Linn Huang...

Phalodi in Rajasthan, #India recorded 51.0 Deg C Temperature on 19 May, 2016, which is the #highest ever recorded temperature in #India.
April and May tend to be the hottest months in northwest India, and this year has been exceptionally so.

Kudos to ISRO, Swadeshi Space Shuttle or RLV launched at 7 am India time.

ISRO says 'Mission Accomplished'.

A big leap for India.

"Newton’s theory predicted, if we want to be literal about it, that starlight would not deflect at all when it passed by the Sun, since light is massless. But if you assigned light a mass based on Einstein’s E = mc^2 (or m = E/c^2), you could find that starlight should deflect by 0.87″ when it passed by the Sun’s extreme outer limit. For a contrast, though, Einstein’s theory gave twice that amount: 1.75″ of deflection.

These were small numbers, but a joint expedition by Arthur Eddington and Andrew Crommelin during the 1919 solar eclipse, were able to measure to the necessary accuracy. The deflection they came up with was 1.61″ ± 0.30″, which agreed (within the errors) with Einstein’s predictions, and not with Newton’s. Newtonian gravity was busted."

Perhaps the greatest, most successful scientific theory of the past century is Einstein’s General Relativity, our theory of gravitation that has answered every challenge to it for the past 101 years with resounding success. Yet before that, Newton’s gravity did the same thing for more than twice as long! The culprit that finally brought the universal theory of ground was incredible in its simplicity: the orbit of the planet Mercury. Observations dating from the late 1500s of the planet Mercury’s position indicated a precession of its orbit of 5600" per century, while Newtonian gravity predicted 5557" per century. That less-than-1% difference proved significant, however, and it was Einstein’s General Relativity that eventually made all the difference.

Newton's theory of gravity was so successful it went unchallenged for over 200 years, until one nagging inconsistency of less than one percent changed the Universe.
