Oculus stated on blog that it obtained one million Gear VR users last months. It is milestone in VR industry. These users are in Oculus e-co system which offers over 250 games and applications for their experience.

SuperData Research predicted that the revenue of VR industry will reach $ 40 billion by 2020.

Docker's participation in the Open Container project has come full circle

Docker-runc-100656060-large.idge.png

The biggest news about Docker 1.11 isn't features in the app, yet that it uses component versions standardized under the aegis of the Open Container Project.

Docker donated the core of its runC runtime to the OCP as a basis for building container tools last year. The same went for containerd, a daemon or server used to control instances of runC. Docker 1.11 now uses the donated and publicly worked-on versions of those projects.

Docker is making this move to challenge the narrative that its container ecosystem is still dictated chiefly by Docker itself. It isn't donating its container specs and runtime details to the OCP merely for show; it wants the future development of the project to be as open-ended and inclusive as possible.

Two chief committers on runC are Docker employees, but committers from Virtuozzo (of Parallels fame), Red Hat's OpenShift and Project Atomic projects, Huawei, GE Healthcare, and Suse Linux have all been regulars as well.

The more visible changes in Docker 1.11 reflect this. Previously, the Docker runtime was the only one available within Docker, and critics felt this limited users' choices. The runc runtime is now swappable; while Docker ships with runc as the default engine, any other compatible engine can be swapped in. (Docker also wants it to be possible to do this without having to kill and restart currently running containers, but that's an improvement scheduled for later.)

Docker is making a case for this OCP-based development process as an inherently better method to create its product. "Splitting Docker up into focused independent tools means more focused maintainers, and ultimately better quality software," stated Docker in its official blog post announcing 1.11.

Aside from fixing long-standing bugs and ensuring the runC/containerd version of Docker didn't slow down, Docker has rolled a slew of improvements into Docker 1.11. Docker Engine now supports VLANs and IPv6 service discovery, and it automatically performs DNS round-robin load balancing across multiple containers that have the same alias.

How to make the best of Two-factor authentication

First of all, the following brief introduction to the background of Two-factor authentication (aka, 2FA) will hugely help get you started with this proactive security guide. Meantime, the very first line of e-security could be a strong enough password. Learn more.

What's 2FA?

The term, 2FA, itself has provided you with the answer: an extra line of defense in effective risk even threat management. Generally, one just cannot continue with the log-in procedure without the additional "security code" from the target service he or she is using, such as WordPress.com, Google, and accounting. Why? Twitter, one of the top popular social media platforms, has been targeted by cyber criminals.

Then, what are the potential cons of it?

Sometimes, the total amount of time you need to wait matters the experience of using such an advanced level of safety. Additionally, please make sure that, your phone has enough signal strength ( * which is typically measured in dBm. ) and battery life,

Again, there ain't no such thing as a 100% safe & secure. Please be kindly educated that, some top hackers can still easily gain the access to the text message(s) you will receive, e.g., Hel*Spy... - DO NOT BE EVIL! Yet another threat, Account Recovery has become alive, according to Mat Honan's story. Review the longer information above.

To better protect your smartphone, your computer and/or other devices you're using, do the following:

  • Always scan the downloaded items you get from the web even some unknown websites.
  • Try testing the target item on a VMware Station if your system meets the system requirements.
  • Try performing the custom or clean installation process (mode) always - otherwise, please Google for safer or official download - this can effectively help avoid adware, junkware attacks. Here're some very typical case studies of foistware infection, such as Web Bar.
  • Perform regular security check thoroughly: scan your system or device in its safe mode in your spare time; rid of any other unused or unknown items in your system.


All in all, it will just take bit longer time to benefit from 2FA. Will you come and join it? It looks that LastPass Authenticator will also enhance your internet security. Give LastPass Authenticator a try for yourself, later.

midas.dll is a dynamic link library files provided by the US company Borland, many programs require the support from midas.dll file to work.

The reason for the error: Assuming that when you install a software in d: \ a1 folder. At this time, Windows will remember, midal.dll is located in d: \ a1 folder. Later, you perform another installation, this time you installed the software in d: \ a2 folder. But when the software is running, windows will still load midas.dll in the d: \ a1 folder. If the system cannot find midas.dll in d: \ a1 folder, then there will be "Error while Loading 'midas.dll'.

Solution: Suppose the last time you install the software in d: \ a2 folder, then you can simply register once midas.dll file and things will be solved.

Open the Windows "Start" -> "Run" menu, enter:

regsvr32 d: \ a2 \ midas.dll   After executing the above command, Windows will directly find midas.dll in d: \ a2 folder in the future.

Tip: You need to substitute the above command d: \ d2 \ midas.dll path to your own path.

Malware can be found in a video ad!

video fans have to be more careful now as some media file might contain malicious advertisement.

NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Digital thieves go where there are the most clicks. And now hackers are sneaking malware into pop-up ads of some of the Internet's most trusted sites, including YouTube, according to security blog Trendmicro.com.

Christopher Budd, of Trendmicro, said malware is loaded on your system if you click on a shady ad on a website. He said the hack in question is known as Ransomware (aka, fakealerts regarding your Windows problems or errors), a particularly nasty bug.

NOTE: Some could even transfer adware, junkware and/or foistware based downware to your puter.

Ransomware isn't new, but it is certainly frightening. If a user is infected, malware restricts access to different computer systems, often private and personal information like photos and other files. The only way to get it back is to literally pay a ransom, often about $300.

Budd said Trendmicro's research shows about 113,000 people were hit by this. He said the best way to protect yourself is to keep your operating system up to date and run a modern security package with anti-malware capabilities.

YouTube told Fox 5 it has security systems in place to prevent this type of attack. YouTube said it is aware of the report but so far it hasn't detected any evidence it was hacked.

As a serial entrepreneur, the CEO of Zeta Interactive Company, David A. Steinberg, has experienced great successes and serious failures. During the 20 years of his career, he learned many lessons that make him wiser, pickier and more efficient.

Steinberg broke into rapid cellphone industry within 1 year after his graduation from college. In 1992, he established retail chain and B2B electronic commerce company Sterling Cellular. Then he established telemarketing company Sterling Communications. In 1999, he sold the company along with his retail services; and in the same year, he founded online mobile and B2B electronic company InPhonic.

Steinberg said that during the most brilliant time, InPhonic earned about $400 million. In 2004, it was named as the private company with the fastest development in America, and successfully launched in the same year. However, in 2007, due to improper management and other reasons, the company went bankrupt.

He bestirred himself soon from the loss, and create digital marketing company with the former president of Pepsi, also the former CEO of Apple, John Sculley. The company was renamed as Zeta Interactive this year. Steinberg said it earned $90 million last year; and from the beginning of the year to the present, the number has reached more than $100 million. He estimated the company's annual growth rate is 90%, and operating margins will reach a few percent, which means Zeta Interactive is under healthy and rapid developing status.

Securely Format a Drive in Windows 8 from the Command Line

20140910175656.jpg (IMG Credit: Dave Greenbaum @ lifehacker)

As you probably know, formatting a hard drive doesn't completely erase the data on it. You must overwrite the data to securely destroy it, preferably multiple times. Windows 8 let's you do this with the format command and the /p parameter.

We've covered how to do a secure erase before, but all you need now is Windows 8. The command is:

Format H: /P:7

The number after /P: is the number of secure erases Windows performs (so in this case it's a total of 7). Read more at the link below. http://www.lifehacker.co.in/technology/Securely-Format-a-Drive-in-Windows-8-from-the-Command-Line/articleshow/41892456.cms

Even though Windows 8 appeared to be all about the modern UI and the touch-based mode of interaction, Microsoft did indeed make some enhancements to the good old DOS commands. In particular, they enhanced the Format command's /P parameter. The parameter still allows you to specify the number of passes, but now instead of just overwriting the sectors on a disk with 0s, additional passes overwrite sectors with random numbers. Furthermore, the number of passes that you specify is in addition to a single pass of 0s.

So, for example, if you were to use the following command:

Format h: /P:4

With that command, the drive H: would be formatted and every sector on the disk would be overwritten once with 0s. Then, the Format command would overwrite each sector four more times -- each time with a different random number. Keep in mind that each additional pass that you specify will increase the amount of time that it will take the Format command to complete its task. However, as you can imagine, this will really decrease the likelihood that anyone would be able to retrieve any sensitive data.

Four daunting challenge Microsoft is facing in Windows 9

Win.jpg

Microsoft may release the next generation of Windows system test version at the end of this year, and today, a columnist Ed Bott wrote an article, pointing out that Microsoft Windows 9 is facing four challenges: business and consumer versions of Windows limits is to be enhanced, desktop experience, IE difficulties and the suppressed Google problem.

1.For business users, they spent a considerable price to buy Windows licenses to ensure the stabilization and hope that the change is less. For ordinary users, their Windows is used less and less when using their mobile device, but they also want to use the new features and applications in a version of Windows without managing the complex operation. 2. 2.In two years, although Windows 8 adds some good features to the desktop, but there is still more room for improvement. This does not mean the features and applications require a large investment, as well as no need to remove the Windows 8.1 kernel meaningful improvements. As long as Microsoft is getting more improvement in management tools, and continuous dripping usability improvements in the classic desktop elements and new modern user experience.

3.From a personal point of view, IE in Windows 8.1 is indeed very good in the whole view, but still there are a lot of imperfections and compatibility issues, so most users will have to use a third-party browser to replace IE. Over time, Microsoft may be able to resolve the incompatibility problems and improve IE to be an useful browser, but whether it can remove bad impression on minds of developers and some advanced users, this is still an open question, if Microsoft can not overcome, then do he has a plan B?

4.Google is the most successful mobile application publishers in the world, according to the relevant data, what displayed in the top ten most popular applications, Google swept the five applications, including YouTube, Google Search, Google Maps and Gmail. And yes, Google has no power, nor any desire with Microsoft in any form of cooperation.

For Windows 9, those are all fairly daunting challenge, we are looking forward to see whether Microsoft is able to solve these problems one by one, leading us users to a better user experience of this operating system.

A new generation of USB Type-C interface: 10Gbit / s, both (I / O) ca n insert

Usb.jpg

According to reports from foreign technology media ArsTechnica, USB promotion team (USB 3.0 Promoter Group) recently announced that it has completed the design of the next-generation USB Type-C connector, the connector can completely replace all currently available USB port, which means it will sweep all the unknown interfaces. USB promotion team also said, USB Type-C connector is ready for mass production, which means that in the near future,interfaces of all the computers / tablets / phones are likely look all the same.

USB Type-C has the following features:

The size of the Type-C interface socket end is as small as the original Micro USB specification, about 8.3mm × 2.5mm;

It can withstand 10,000 times repeated mating;

Support inserted from both sides which named "reverse plug" function (similar to Apple’s Lightning interface);

Slim design;

The maximum data transfer speeds up to 10Gbit / s, which is exactly the USB 3.1 standard;

Standard cable equipped with a Type-C connector can obtained by 3A current, and also supports "USB PD" which beyond the existing USB power supply, as well as can provide a maximum power of 100W.

Before Apple lightning interface appears, we may have never thought of the input / output (I / O) interface can easily insert, with the arrival of Type-C connector, all this will happen soon, even if the rate of adoption is doomed to be slow, at least this day is not so far-fetched.
