  • How Thanksgiving Celebrates The Birth Of American Free Enterprise

    11/23/2017 9:09:43 AM PST · by sloop3
    This time of the year, whether in good economic times or bad, is when Americans gather with their families and friends and enjoy a Thanksgiving meal together. It marks a remembrance of those early Pilgrim Fathers who crossed the uncharted ocean from Europe to make a new start in Plymouth, Massachusetts. What is less appreciated is that Thanksgiving also is a celebration of the birth of free enterprise in America.
  • GE to offer Macs to their 330,000 employees as it standardizes on iOS for mobile

    We saw yesterday how Microsoft’s absence in mobile led to the removal of Surface tablets from Delta’s employee offerings, and today we have more evidence of the erosion of Microsoft’s dominance in the enterprise as companies increasingly work to simplify their platforms. Industrial giant GE has announced a partnership with Apple to bring Predix, GE’s software platform for the Industrial Internet, to Apple’s iPhone smartphones and iPad tablets. The new Predix-iOS software development kit will include tools that software developers can use to write industrial apps that will run on Apple’s iOS operating system. The new partnership means that a...

    While there remain some industry observers that cling to rapidly diminishing arguments against such deployment, “Apple devices are already pervasive in the enterprise,” Mahmoud Naghshineh, General Manager, Offerings and Solutions, IBM, told me. Naghshineh spoke to me as IBM expands its MobileFirst iOS for the enterprise scheme. He echoes Mike Brinker, Global Digital Leader, Deloitte Digital, who last year called Apple’s products “essential to the modern enterprise”.

    Starship Enterprise will be restored to its 1967 glory: Smithsonian to rebuild 11ft model used in original Star Trek TV show It has been 50 years since the original model of the Starship Enterprise made its final imaginary voyage. Today, the 11ft-long model lies in pieces at the Smithsonian Museum in Virginia with a damaged secondary hull and nacelles. Trekkies the world over have been urging model makers to save this iconic ship. Now the Smithsonian says it will attempt to do just that, but restoring it to its appearance in 1967, during the filming of the episode 'The Trouble...
  • Rental car toll fees stir backlash that threatens Florida’s image

    TALLAHASSEE Visitors to Florida who rent cars are being shocked by toll charges long after they get home, and enough are complaining that legislators say it could damage the state’s tourist-friendly image. In Florida, a tourist climbs behind the wheel of a rental car and enters a world of 600 miles of toll roads, more than any other state. As cash toll booths are steadily giving way to cashless, all-electronic tolling, car renters are being hit with service fees of $4 to $15 a day on top of unpaid toll charges. The rental car industry calls it a convenience as...
  • Is Windows 10 already an enterprise success? 1.5 mn installations in a month and 75 M devices say so

    Less than a month after rollout of Windows 10, Microsoft has shared that its new operating system had already been installed on 75 million devices. And, interestingly nearly 1.5 million of those systems are running Windows 10 Enterprise. The company, however, didn't disclose the scale and size of enterprise customers, but said "some of them are rolling out hundreds of machines in some very large pilots." Also, it's not clear how many Indian organisations have deployed Windows 10 Enterprise edition. According to analysts, firms here will adopt 'wait-and-watch' strategy. "Many Indian organisations have recently moved from XP to Windows 7...

    Do you need to crank your home network to warp speed? This model of Star Trek's original Starship Enterprise hides a surprisingly practical secret: It's a functioning Wi-Fi access point. Even better, this nerdy DIY creation by Germany-based Trekkies Christoph Kauch and Rol Schwarz uses mostly off-the-shelf parts. So if you're in the market for a way to extend your home network and are willing to shell out a few more Federation credits than usual, you too can create a Starship Enterprise that doubles as your door to the World Wide Web.

    FireEye's Mandiant found that the average data breach was discovered in 205 days, dropping from 229 days (2013) and 243 days (2012). Enterprises were only able to self-detect 31 percent of breaches, with third-parties and the government helping identify cybersecurity incidents.    Companies are becoming more vigilant in detecting cybercrime-related activity, such as credit card companies noticing fraudulent behavior.  "Over the last several years, organizations like the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) have gotten increasingly involved in notifying US businesses that they have been identified as being compromised," said Ryan Kazanciyan, technical director at Mandiant, in a statement to eWEEK....
  • Apple Took 89% Of Q4 Smartphone Profits With Android OEMs In A Race To The Bottom

    Google’s Android has gobbled up market share world wide, now accounting for over 80% of all smartphone shipped globally. But when it comes to actually making money, Apple is eating all the profits as it continues its focus on premium devices. Today Strategy Analytics said that Apple in Q4 last year accounted for 89% of all smartphone profits, equating to $18.8 billion, with Android taking only 11%, or $2.4 billion. The blow for Android is softened only slightly less so only by the fact that other platform players like Microsoft, Blackberry and Firefox seemingly made no profit at all.
  • iOS grows to 73% enterprise share in Q4 2014, Android drops to 25%, and Windows Phone stays flat

    Apple still rules the mobile enterprise space and is extending its lead. iOS gained another 4 percentage points, growing to 73 percent of global device activations in Q4 2014. Android device activations, meanwhile, dropped the same amount to 25 percent of total activations last quarter. The latest findings come from Good Technology‘s Mobility Index Report. Windows Phone activations remain consistent with the seven previous quarters: flat at 1 percent. Since BlackBerry devices use BlackBerry Enterprise Server for corporate email access, Good Technology does not have insight into BlackBerry handset activations. In Q3 2014, Apple reversed its trend of declining quarterly...
  • Durbin Criticizes Free Enterprise: ´Created Unfairness and Injustice´

    In a speech on the Senate floor Tuesday, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said free enterprise isn´t always best. Government must step in. "The free enterprise system is a strong system," he said, but it "created unfairness and injustice when it came to health care, which we are addressing with this Affordable Care Act." In passing that law, Durbin said Democrats "rejected the free enterprise approach to health care and said let´s have something that basically respects families." He also criticized Republicans for embracing free enterprise: "Let me tell you a free enterprise idea when it came to health care. Before
  • Meet the 99.999999 Percent: They’re worried about jobs and growth, not inequality.

    National Review ^ | 02/10/2014 | James Pethokoukis
    Forget about the 1 percent versus the 99 percent. It’s really more like the 0.000001 percent versus everybody else. A tiny group — mostly comprising the Obama White House, a bunch of Washington Democrats, progressive economists, and the media elite — continues to fixate on income inequality as America’s greatest challenge. Most everybody else, the 99.999999 percent, sees things differently. Surveys continue to show Americans most worried about jobs and economic growth, not the income gap between the top and bottom. It’s a rational view given new employment data from the government. The January jobs report showed only 113,000 net...

    As a child of the 80s, I remember We Are the World. Yeah, the song is terrible, but it was nice to see rock stars care about charity. Back then poverty in Africa was in the news all the time. But things have been changing in Africa and in other “third-world” countries. More countries are opening up their markets. China, Russia, India, and Botswana are all much freer economies than they were in 1970. But even I was shocked when I saw this graph: Mark Perry, an economics professor at UM-Flint said it best: Well, the chart above could perhaps qualify...

    To Conservatives, today is Enterprise Day when the job creators -- the risk takers and investors -- put it all on the line for the uniquely American way of free enterprise and letting the marketplace rule. Through hard work, intelligence and innovation, the makers are those to be honored today.Instead a DemonRAT president, Grover Cleveland, chose to set aside a day to pay tribute to the socialist union goons of the labor movement. Along with its evil twin, the minimum wage, union thugs have deliberately put brakes on the American economic engine.

After Star Trek IV, the crew of the Enterprise needed more whales, so they came back to San Francisco again, except this time it's an alternate universe where Reagan's Star Wars defense initiative from the 80's is coming to fruition as the Death Star nears completion (superlaser already fully operational).

    An engineer who created plans to build a working replica of the starship Enterprise from “Star Trek” has created a petition for NASA to consider the feasibility of the project and re-imagine his design. As of today, his petition has gathered 6,293 signatures. In order to receive a reply from the White House, just over 18,700 additional signatures are required. The engineer, who goes by BTE-Dan, has done more than just start a petition. He's created a website, buildtheenterprise.org, outlining why he believes the project would yield positive results for the country and the world. “We have within our technological...

    After 51 years of service, the historic aircraft carrier is about to be decommissioned. When the USS Enterprise (CVN 65) sailed away from Norfolk, Virginia, on its maiden voyage in 1962, it was the world’s first nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, and the eighth Enterprise in a long dynasty reaching back to the Revolutionary War. Its eight nuclear reactors, reported the Chicago Daily Defender, had an energy potential "as great as that of all the reactors in the free world." The most recent Enterprise played a role in the Cuban Missile Crisis, along with other ships in the Second Fleet, blockading shipments...

    Enterprise IT decision makers are about half as enthusiastic about the new Windows 8 as they were three years ago about the then-just-released Windows 7, an analyst said today. Employees, however, have a higher-than-expected interest in the revamped operating system when it powers a tablet, second only to Apple's iOS, which runs the iPad. According to David Johnson of Forrester Research, 24% of the more than 1,200 North American and European IT hardware purchasers the firm interviewed in the third quarter said that while they had no plans in place to migrate to Windows 8, they expect to at some...

    WASHINGTON — After half a century on the high seas, the oldest warship in the American fleet, the USS Enterprise, will return to port Sunday for the last time. From the Cuban Missile Crisis to the war in Afghanistan, the world's first nuclear-powered aircraft carrier has played a part in every conflict involving the United States since she was commissioned in 1961. But when the massive vessel glides into the US naval base in Norfolk, Virginia on Sunday morning, with sailors in white uniforms standing on deck, it will mark the end of her 25th and final deployment after an...
