From the 1800s to now: The world’s oldest tech companies

Feature A surprising number of technology companies have roots that date back to the 1800s. When did the age of computing start? While the code-breaking Colossus  was built in the 1940s, you could actually go back even further, to the mid-1800s and Charles Babbage’s Difference Engine. While it might not have been built in his lifetime, the Babbage Difference Engine was the first example of a computer. What about the time of technology compa...

When every public screen is your personal screen

One screen, one user. But what happens when any screen can serve hundreds of users? In Steven Spielberg’s 2002 sci-fi movie, Minority Report , billboards could display customized ads that addressed each passerby by name (or at least by the name of the person who provided one’s eyeballs). Every public holographic billboard became private, targeted and personalized for a couple of seconds as each person walked by. In reality, the public will ...

Does moving your pen drag the canvas? Welcome to yet another bug in Win10 1709 patches

A Windows Ink engineer has confirmed that there’s a bug in the third Win10 1709 March Cumulative Update, KB 4089848, that breaks common pen movements in Photoshop, Lightroom and CS Paint. Looks as if the same problem bedevils this month’s 1709 Cumulative Update, KB 4093112, as well. Microsoft, it seems, decided to break pen behavior in Win10 1709 without any notification or explanation. Early this month, DavideV, on the Microsoft Answers fo...

Great R packages for data import, wrangling and visualization

Feature Google Here are my go-to R packages -- in a handy searchable table. One of the great things about R is the thousands of packages users have written to solve specific problems in various disciplines -- analyzing everything from weather or financial data to the human genome -- not to mention analyzing computer security-breach data . Some tasks are common to almost all users, though, regardless of subject area: data import, data wrangl...

A tale of two hospitals that adopted Apple’s Health Record app

Mind-reading tech is here (and more useful than you think!)

Here’s a thought: Mind-reading software is not only ready for commercial use, but it will actually be of practical use in everyday business applications. But wait, you say. That’s creepy, invasive and useless. Read this column, though, and you just might change your mind about that. (And if you do, your gadgets will know.) The missing ingredient Futurists have predicted mind-reading technology for years. And while the detection of brain-wav...

The battle of the smart assistants continues, and while people seem to want to get more from using Siri, others seem to want to figure out how to turn Cortana off, and Google Assistant isn’t far behind.
