ShoutMeLoud July 2017 Blog Income & Traffic Report: $50k Milestone

ShoutMeLoud July 2017 Blog Income & Traffic Report: $50k Milestone

July 2017 Blog Income & Traffic Report - ShoutMeLoud

‘Million’ is a magical word. However, until a few years back, it used to be an alien word for me.

I’m from New Delhi, India, and here we talk in Lakhs and Crores. Thanks to globalization and the growth of the blogging and startup industries, “million” is no longer a word that is exciting for me.

Why am I talking about this word?

Because ShoutMeLoud receives more than 1.5 million page views a month, and one of my goals for this year is to reach 2 million page views a month.

I think we can get there… read more

Friendly, Frictionless Work: Best Practices For Enterprise Messaging UX, From Slack

Friendly, Frictionless Work: Best Practices For Enterprise Messaging UX, From Slack

Creating good user experiences for apps inside messaging platforms poses a relatively new design challenge. When moving from desktop web to mobile interfaces, developers have had to rethink interaction design1 to work around a constrained screen size, a new set of input gestures2 and unreliable network connections. Like our tiny touchscreens, messaging platforms also shake up the types of input that apps can accept, change designers’ canvas size, and demand a different set of assumptions about how users communicate. read more

All Three 2017 iPhone Models Have Entered Volume Production Ahead of Expected September Launch

All Three 2017 iPhone Models Have Entered Volume Production Ahead of Expected September Launch

A new supply chain report today described strong July sales for component suppliers in the iPhone supply chain, hinting at an increase in momentum for production on the 2017 iPhones. Furthermore, sources speaking with DigiTimes have said that all three of the new iPhones — the “iPhone 8,” “iPhone 7s,” and “iPhone 7s Plus” — have now entered volume production.

The supply chain sources mentioned that there “will not be shortages” for the LCD iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus, but supply for the OLED iPhone 8 “could fall short of demand,” a sentiment we’ve been hearing for months. One of the major factors cited for this shortage is related to “high expectations” from users, which is expected to keep suppliers operating production lines in high gear and lead to record-breaking monthly and even quarterly sales volumes. read more

Intel to Announce 8th Generation Core Processors on August 21st

Intel to Announce 8th Generation Core Processors on August 21st

Today Intel has revealed that the company will be announcing their 8th generation Core processors and associated architecture on August 21st. This announcement of an announcement comes as the company is in the middle of launching the rest of the Core i9 Skylake-X processors, with the announcement essentially set to fill out the rest of the year for the company’s CPU product portfolio.

Intel has in recent times settled into a fairly consistent and roughly yearly release cadence for the Core processor family. Other than Broadwell’s delay, Intel has typically launched a new processor in the summer/fall timeframe for the past half-decade. And as early as an investor meeting in February, the company revealed that we should expect the 8th generation processors in the second half of this year. read more

Hellblade Is Great Because It’s Frustrating

Hellblade Is Great Because It’s Frustrating

I went into Hellblade expecting another fast, fun action romp from the folks at Ninja Theory, who previously made Enslaved and DmC: Devil May Cry. After playing for about 20 minutes, I had to put the controller down. I was so stressed out that I couldn’t take it anymore.

Minor Hellblade spoilers ahead.

It was the first combat sequence that did me—and main character Senua, a Celtic warrior hoping to free the soul of her dead lover from Viking Hell—in. After trudging through a forest whose trees looked like the bony fingers of Death itself, an unsettling chorus of voices chattering in Senua’s head all the while, I arrived at some ruins. Immediately, I noticed two things: one, the path I was following opened up in a way that screamed “combat arena,” and two, I was paying close attention to the game’s artifices as a means of distracting myself from all the dread. read more

How to beat and catch Zapdos, Pokemon GO’s best Legendary yet

Today we took a peek at the many ways in which Zapdos could be defeated in Pokemon GO. This research began with listing the Pokemon that were best to beat this Legendary Bird. Next we went through the best way to roll up on Zapdos and catch his sharp behind with a set of Premiere Balls – spinners! Finally, we sat down with Zapdos and did a brief run-down about why she is the best Pokemon in the Legendary Bird set so far.

Best Zapdos Raiders in Pokemon GO

The topmost Pokemon Raiders for Zapdos begin with Golem – the most evolved form of Geodude. That monster is the best only when he’s got Rock Type Attacks attached to him. The best moveset for Golem is Rock Throw (fast) and Stone Edge (charged). read more

Apple faces US agency investigation in Qualcomm legal spat

Things are heating up between Apple and Qualcomm. 

CNET

A key US agency has officially stepped into the legal battle between Apple and Qualcomm

The US International Trade Commission, which has the power to ban products from entering the country, confirmed on Tuesday it will investigate Qualcomm’s complain that Apple was illegally using its cellular technology in iPhones powered by modems made by Intel. Qualcomm is seeking to bar all iPhones using Intel modems, which run on the AT&T and T-Mobile networks. 

While there’s no specific timing, the ITC said it would set a target date to complete the investigation within 45 days after its start. Qualcomm General Counsel Don Rosenberg warned in July that any decision from the ITC likely wouldn’t happen for about 18 months.  read more

The Guy Who Invented Those Annoying Password Rules Now Regrets Wasting Your Time

The Guy Who Invented Those Annoying Password Rules Now Regrets Wasting Your Time

We’ve all been forced to do it: create a password with at least so many characters, so many numbers, so many special characters, and maybe an uppercase letter. Guess what? The guy who invented these standards nearly 15 years ago now admits that they’re basically useless. He is also very sorry.

The man in question is Bill Burr, a former manager at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). In 2003, Burr drafted an eight-page guide on how to create secure passwords creatively called the “NIST Special Publication 800-63. Appendix A.” This became the document that would go on to more or less dictate password requirements on everything from email accounts to login pages to your online banking portal. All those rules about using uppercase letters and special characters and numbers—those are all because of Bill. read more
