[12/05/14]   In simple terms why a 64 bit computer(processor) is better than a 32 bit one
...................................................................................................
YouTube said that the 2012 song by South Korea's Psy — accompanied by a horse-riding-like dance that became a global sensation — this week reached the maximum number of views that its counter had imagined to be conceivable.

The video-sharing site shows that the official version of the video has had more than 2.15 billion views — the equivalent of one-third of the world's population, although of course many people watched more than once.

The problem: YouTube designed its counter with what is known in computer science as a 32-bit integer, meaning that the maximum number of countable views was 2,147,483,647.

"We never thought a video would be watched in numbers greater than a 32-bit integer," YouTube, which is owned by search engine giant Google, said in a posting on Google+.

YouTube engineers anticipated the problem and upgraded to a 64-bit integer.

Foodini Device 3D-Prints Your Dinner
__________________________________

With Foodini, preparing a handmade meal doesn't take nearly as long as it used to.

"Foodini’s main purpose is to take on the difficult and/or time-consuming parts of food preparation that often discourage people from creating homemade food, whether it’s in a home kitchen or a restaurant," Lynette Kucsma, a Foodini cofounder.

Foodini is a 3D printer that can do things such as build already-rolled pasta dough. The device lets you choose from a number of recipes or build your own. To make ravioli, for example, prepare the dough and the filling, load them into the machine's food "capsules" and select "ravioli" on the printer's iPad-like interface. Foodini will then print the ingredients in the shape of fully-formed ravioli, and the only thing left to do is cook them. If your dish requires no cooking, then it's ready to eat as soon as Foodini is finished.

Foodini, which was developed by startup Natural Machines, will cost around $1,300, but won't be a behemoth in your kitchen. It's built to look like a sleek microwave and is about the same size. The 3D printer will also be ready to prepare food as soon you take it out of the box, no assembly required.

Foodini can build anything from a quiche to chocolate in the shape of a snowman, which means it not only assembles complicated dishes faster than you could yourself, but also helps holiday party hosts design clever edible creations.

Natural Machines expects to ship the first wave of its 3D printers in mid-2014.

[04/24/14]   Did you know?

The eyes clean and moisten themselves each time you blink. Computer use reduces your blink rate by as much as five times. When you are on a computer you also more likely to have incomplete blinks. That is when a blink does not fully cover the cornea of your eye. This can result in eye strain, fatigue, and headaches.

Reduced blinking is most associated with Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS). Symptoms include:

headaches
blurred vision
dry eyes
neck and shoulder pain
double vision
light sensitivity

[03/28/14]   Chalk up one for Google

Google has aggressively cut and simplified the pricing of its business cloud offerings in a move that is likely to spark a major price war among public cloud providers.

At the Google Cloud Platform Live event in San Francisco this week, the company’s senior vice-president Urs Hölzle announced reductions of 32% across the board in all regions for use of its infrastructure as a service (IaaS) offering Google Compute Engine. He also introduced a flat per-gigabyte rate for storage that represents a cut of 68% for most users.

[03/08/14]   For all you you budding webpreneurs. The most important thing to do. I grant you this is the most important lesson you will ever learn on the subject

If you want to consistently grow your business – and ultimately make a
six-figure income online(in dollars) – then you must have a plan. And you must
have some kind of action steps in place in order to accomplish that plan.

Ya gotta have a system!

Once you have a system, it’s simply a matter of repeating things (and watching your business grow as you do!) over and over.

If you want to grow your online business and, ultimately, the profits you can
actually spend each month, then those are the three things you need…
1. Increase your market reach.
2. Increase your lead conversion.
3. Increase your lifetime value.

in other words
1. Find more of your potential customers.
2. Convert more of those you find into paying customers.
3. Get those paying customers to spend more money with you.

Over and over and over...............

Every man in a village of 100 married couples has cheated on his wife. Every wife in the village instantly knows when a man other than her husband has cheated, but does not know when her own husband has. The village has a law that does not allow for adultery.

There are some data represented by(x,y,z). Now we want to find the Kth least data. We say (x1, y1, z1) > (x2, y2, z2) when value(x1, y1, z1) > value(x2, y2, z2) where value(x,y,z) = (2^x)*(3^y)*(5^z). Now we can not get it by calculating value(x,y,z) or through other indirect calculations as lg(value(x,y,z)). How to solve it?
How many degrees are there in the angle between the hour and minute hands of a clock when the time is a quarter past three?
Given an array whose elements are sorted, return the index of a the first occurrence of a specific integer. Do this in sub-linear time. I.e. do not just go through each element searching for that element.
Given two linked lists, return the intersection of the two lists: i.e. return a list containing only the elements that occur in both of the input lists.
What’s the difference between a hashtable and a hashmap?
If a person dials a sequence of numbers on the telephone, what possible words/strings can be formed from the letters associated with those numbers?

Create a fast cached storage mechanism that, given a limitation on the amount of cache memory, will ensure that only the least recently used items are discarded when the cache memory is reached when inserting a new item. It supports 2 functions: String get(T t) and void put(String k, T t).
Create a cost model that allows Google to make purchasing decisions on to compare the cost of purchasing more RAM memory for their servers vs. buying more disk space.
Design an algorithm to play a game of Frogger and then code the solution. The object of the game is to direct a frog to avoid cars while crossing a busy road. You may represent a road lane via an array. Generalize the solution for an N-lane road.

How to design a search engine? If each document contains a set of keywords, and is associated with a numeric attribute, how to build indices?
Given two files that has list of words (one per line), write a program to show the intersection.
What kind of data structure would you use to index annagrams of words? e.g. if there exists the word “top” in the database, the query for “pot” should list that.
