I came across two very professional looking infographics from colleagues this week. The colleagues are not designers, so I was very impressed with their work!

It turns out that they both used Venngage.

I must give it a try the next time that I think that I need an infographic!

SamKnows in Ireland

Category: Hardware,Internet,TelecomsTeknovis @ 23:26

I recently heard about SamKnows in the context of it being available in Ireland! In summary, it is a free to participate in scheme which involves plugging a box into your ISP’s internet connection in order to measure actual speeds! You can then compare these actual speeds to the advertised speeds in order to determine the difference.

Firefox 29.0

Category: Internet,SoftwareTeknovis @ 16:11

I just updated my Firefox to version 29.0.

The things I like are:

  • The user interface seems cleaner, and more polished!

The things I do not like are:

  • The “Firefox” or “Application” button is missing from the top left! I do not see any reason why the “Hamburger” button on the right is better! It is more difficult to see, and it is less convent!
  • My favourite theme Silvermel no longer works. Instead I am using Dark Fox.

However, I think that a lot of the changes will be very positive for less experienced users!

US Airways Embraces Twitter

It is fascinating to see how US Airways is embracing Twitter, as described in US Airways Just Tweeted Out One Of The Most Graphic Things You’ve Ever Seen A Brand Tweet.

What are even funnier are some of the tweets in 38 Priceless Twitter Reactions to That NSFW US Airways Tweet.

The End of the Patent Wars?

Category: Internet,PatentsTeknovis @ 09:27

I do not think so, but there have been some very interesting development this weekend!

Firstly, Facebook and Yahoo have come to a mutual agreement to share and cross license their patents! See Facebook and Yahoo settle patent and form ad alliance for more details.

Secondly, the UN has decided to intervene by hosting a summit for some of the companies currently involved in the patent wars. I do not know how successful this will be, but I think that it cannot hurt to try to improve the current situation! See Patent war talks to be hosted by UN agency to protect innovation for more details on this story.
