Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Our top story this week was Audrey Watters’ report on a survey that asked students how they use technology in the classroom. Almost 300,000 students from kindergarden through 12th grade – along with 43,000 parents, 35,000 teachers, 2,000 librarians, 3,500 administrators – took part in the study.The results show that parents and teachers’ desire to either provide or improve access to digital tools in the classroom is strong. And teachers and administrators are confident they’re doing a good job using technology to enhance how students learn. But fewer than half the kids agreed. And it’s no wonder: The majority of administrators surveyed have no interest in incorporating one of the most common computing devices in the world – the cell phone – into their schools this year.After the jump you’ll find more of this week’s top news stories on some of the key trends that are shaping the Web – mobile, location, Internet of Things – plus highlights from our six channels.

The best recent example of Bluetooth Smart in action is the way the new Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch connects with the Galaxy Note 3 smartphone. Apple also uses a Bluetooth Smart function in iOS 7 with a new feature called iBeacon. This feature creates a bubble area around an app “a beacon” that is similar to a geo-fence. When you and your bubble come into contact with another bubble (say, a grocery or a retail store) an action will occur. For instance, if I am at my local coffee shop and it has an iBeacon, it will connect to iPhone and allow me to do something like make a payment or send me a coupon. iBeacon could be set up in an apartment to connect other gadgets to the iPhone via Bluetooth Smart the minute you walk in the door.Wi-Fi Direct is similar to Bluetooth Low Energy, but in many ways is more robust. Wi-Fi Direct is a way to create a connection between two devices without going through Wi-Fi router in a fairly simple manner. The best example of Wi-Fi Direct is how easy it has become to connect your home printer with your computer. Instead of the lengthy and complicated process that used to take place when connecting two devices, now it is simple as hitting a single button on the computer and one on the printer and saying “connect.” Wi-Fi Direct can be used for streaming music or video from one device to another, sharing documents, media or pictures or letting one device control another (such a your PC to your printer). See Also How Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Points Towards A Future Of Google Wearable DevicesApple will use Wi-Fi Direct in iOS 7 for a feature called AirDrop that will allow you to share pictures and documents from one iPhone to another. The feature has been available in Mac computers since Apple released the Mac OS X “Lion” update. What do Bluetooth and Wi-Fi Direct have in common? They allow interaction between devices on a one-to-one basis. Imagine walking into your house and everything inside automatically connecting to your smartphone. From an app, you could turn on the lights in the kitchen, turn on the TV (and tell it what to watch), pre-heat the oven for dinner and download your work files from your home computer. Imagine that your new iPhone 5S or Android smartphone could control all aspects of your life. Change channels on your TV, start your car, change the temperature in your house, pay for your coffee, the watch on your wrist … everything. Think of a smartphone as universal remote for your entire life.It’s a reality that is not so far away.Three aspects of iOS and Android, the operating systems that run the majority of smartphones, are leading us to a future where those phones will have the ability to control everything around us: the explosion of the app ecosystem, the evolution of Bluetooth and the adoption of a standard called Wi-Fi Direct.Couple these aspects with the continued growth and maturation of what is called the “Internet of Things,” and you have laid the groundwork for a smartphone that can directly control, track or measure everything with which you come in contact.AirDrop in iOS 7Take the just-announced iPhone 5S, for example. It will support both Bluetooth Smart and Wi-Fi Direct, and has capabilities built in to perform new functions such as AirDrop local sharing. Behind it stands Apple’s thriving ecosystem, which will continue to churn out new apps that take advantage of those functions. All that makes the iPhone 5S not just Apple’s latest and greatest device, but one of the first devices available that has the potential to be a true universal remote.Apps & Cloud Provide Interface & OpportunityYou’ve probably seen commercials where a person uses a smartphone to start their car or set a home alarm. These are examples of how apps can control things in your life. Yet these examples are not direct one-to-one connections where the smartphone connects directly to the gadget (alarm system or vehicle’s computer) in question. Rather these types of apps use cloud computing to provide functionality.See also: How iOS 7’s AirDrop Could Transform The Way We ShareTo control objects that aren’t in their general vicinity, apps must go through an intermediary. This intermediary can be a server in the cloud or a home’s Wi-Fi router. A smartphone user can then use an app to tell the object (the car or home security system) what they want it to do. The request is routed through the router or the cloud. The target object retrieves that information from the cloud and makes the appropriate action. What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Tags:#Bluetooth#Internet of Things#iPhone 5S#Wearable Computing#Wi-Fi It is hard to overstate how much the maturation of cloud computing has enabled mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. By connecting to the cloud, smartphones and tablets don’t have to perform processor-intensive calculations directly, and instead can leave the heavy lifting to a much more powerful server somewhere else.The same goes for the other side of the equation. Vehicles, home thermostats and security systems don’t have to perform complex calculations directly; all they have to do is act on directives passed down from the cloud. See also: How Wi-Fi Direct Works As A Gateway To The Internet Of ThingsThe app is the vehicle that creates the opportunity to build this type of functionality. Think of it as a wormhole through which you can reach your hand and perform an action somewhere else. The more people with smartphones in their hands, the more wormholes—apps—will make smartphones the remotes that control our lives.Over the past few years, the cloud has been the center of how smart devices and the Internet of Things interact. Yet with advances in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi Direct, the cloud won’t have to carry the main burden.The Direct Connection: Bluetooth Smart & Wi-Fi DirectSmartphones are getting smarter, and two different wireless standards are helping spur that evolution. Bluetooth Low Energy (also known as Bluetooth Smart) is part of the Bluetooth Core Specification 4.0. It allows for devices to connect over a distance of about 160 feet and transfer data and wireless connections to each other. It does this (as you may have guessed by the name) in a power efficient manner so as to save the battery of both devices. Bluetooth Smart is a one-to-one connection between devices that does not require an intermediary yet still allows rich data (music, notifications, cellular connectivity like 3G/4G and others) to be shared. Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Related Posts dan rowinski That would be pretty cool, right? It is technically possible right now, though there are some obstacles that would have to be overcome for your smartphone to become the universal remote for your life.Adoption & Ecosystems: Getting Everybody On The Same PageGetting all of these devices to play nice with each other may be the biggest obstacle. Different companies have different agendas, different platforms and the same basic need: your money. Hence, those companies will create solutions that will force you to stay within their ecosystem and product lines.AirDrop can only work with other Apple products. Google’s Chromecast TV dongle (that lets you use a tablet or smartphone as a remote for your TV to watch YouTube or Netflix) uses standard Wi-Fi and doesn’t play nice with other wireless streaming standards like Miracast or Wi-Fi Direct. Samsung’s “S Beam” and other sharing capabilities are intended to be used only with other Samsung devices like TVs, laptops or tablets. See also: Apple’s New iOS 7: What You Need To Know NowThen there is the standard dilemma of consumer adoption. Mobile technology often moves faster than consumers do, making it hard to keep pace. Most consumers will get a new smartphone about once every two years. Multiply that by three or more for other consumer items, like a new car, home security system or television, and you can see the problem. To set up your new iPhone 5S as a universal remote, you are going to need to be on the bleeding edge of just about every kind of new technology. That doesn’t mean that your new iPhone or top of the line Android smartphone won’t be able to perform many of these functions on an individual basis. You can use your iPhone 5S to stream media to an Apple TV and share files with friends. Or to control a smart thermostat like Nest. Solutions may be scattered today, but the journey to make your smartphone the remote that controls everything around you is well on its way.
Atalanta coach Gasperini reveals special Guardiola gesture: It’d never happenedby Paul Vegas3 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveAtalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini has revealed a special gesture he received from Pep Guardiola.Manchester City host the Oribici tonight in the Champions League.Gasperini said, “I must say that Guardiola is a very great person, beyond this, he made a gesture that had never happened to me before.”Eight years ago, when I left Inter he called me through Estiarte, with whom we had known each other since Pescara, and invited me to Barcelona to spend a few days with them. “For me it was an extraordinary gesture, of great sensitivity, because at that moment he gave me something beautiful. Also for this I respect him a lot. Having said that being here is beautiful, even if they are definitely dangerous…” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
roy williams tees off on espn green roomNorth Carolina head coach Roy Williams is upset with ESPN – and he had no problem letting everyone know on Friday. Williams, ahead of his team’s contest against Boston College this Saturday, expressed that he isn’t a fan of how the network seems to focus on the “green room” players during broadcasts – meaning the players who are locks to be first round NBA Draft picks. He thinks that the game of college basketball is great – and ESPN shouldn’t just be giving the next-level players attention.Here’s video, via North Carolina:Williams makes some good points, but it’s not as-if he hasn’t seen his own share of “green room” players come through his program. Regardless, we don’t expect the network to change its ways.
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says Raheem Sterling should not be judged based on World Cup goals and also acknowledged that Sterling is both important for City as well as his national side with Gareth Southgate.“If you judge the players in the World Cup on whether you score a goal or not… I think Raheem has this special relationship with English football, but he is so beloved in the locker room,” the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss told a post-match news conference as quoted in Goal.“He made very good things in the World Cup – how he moves and creates spaces for the other ones, runs in behind.“He likes to score a goal. He tried but I am pretty sure that during the qualification for the European Championship he will be good for his country and sometimes score goals.”“His mum and dad gave him a special body shape,” he said. “He’s small, tiny – so these kind of guys in one week are ready.Guardiola: Sterling must ignore Ronaldo & Messi comparisons Andrew Smyth – September 13, 2019 Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola advised Raheem Sterling to ignore comparisons to Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, who he rates as incomparable.“We saw him be good in the training sessions. We needed a guy in that position and he did it well, except the last 20 or 25 minutes when he was a little bit tired. But that is normal.“There is sacrifice from a lot of the players – Kyle Walker, John Stones, Fernandinho. We trained just one week, two weeks – a short, short time, but the spirit is there and that’s the most important thing.” Great way to start the season, massive 3 points also really happy to have scored my 50th @premierleague goal today!!!!! pic.twitter.com/7B3iAGbNeJ— Raheem Sterling (@sterling7) August 12, 2018
Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri remains uncertain over their Premier League title credentials after beating Crystal Palace 3-1 on SundayAlvaro Morata’s brace along with another goal from fellow Spaniard Pedro secured the win for Chelsea.Following their triumph at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea are now on 27 points from 11 Premier League games.The Blues also remain unbeaten and are just two points shy of leaders Manchester City.But Sarri is still unsure whether Chelsea can sustain a season-long challenge after last term’s outcome.Daniel Farke, From mid-table in the Championship to the Premier League Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Norwich City manager, Daniel Farke, has taken his team from the middle of the table in the English Championship to play with the big boys in the Premier League.“I don’t know, I don’t know,” Sarri told reporters on the club website.“At the beginning, we knew very well that there was a gap. There was a gap last season, 30 points.“So I think that, at the moment, we need only to think… to try to recover the large part of this gap.“I hope to recover almost all the gap, but I don’t know. I think it’s very difficult to cover 30 points in six months, but we are trying.”Although Chelsea have won the Premier League twice in the last four seasons.
