The AWS Cloud Goes Underground at re:Invent

The AWS Cloud Goes Underground at re:Invent

Just hours ahead of its annual reInvent customer conference, Amazon Web Services Inc. said it has signed up a couple of important new customers who will be using its public cloud computing infrastructure to run the bulk of their information technology operations.

They include Ellie Mae Inc., which provides cloud software for the mortgage industry that helps streamline and automate the process of originating and funding new loans and facilitate regulatory compliance. The other one is Mobileye, a division of Intel Corp. that builds software that lets autonomous vehicles drive along busy roads without any human intervention.

The new customers, no doubt not the last before reInvent closes on Friday, can be seen as major wins for AWS since they serve as solid references for a range of its cutting-edge services, including its microservices and machine learning platforms.

In the case of Ellie Mae, it’s actually said to be going “all-in” on Amazon’s cloud, which means it will be dismantling its on-premises infrastructure completely to run all of its IT operations there. The company will be using almost the full gamut of Amazon’s services going forward, including its compute, storage, database, serverless and software container platforms.

Ellie Mae said it has already moved the bulk of its operations to Amazon’s cloud, building a companywide data lake with Amazon Simple Storage, for example. The move has enabled it to adopt a microservices-based architecture on which it hosts the majority of its software applications.

The idea is that these can benefit from increased agility and faster, smoother and more regular updates. One of the main services it uses is Amazon Lambda, a so-called serverless platform that allows it to run new code without needing to provision or manage computer servers and other resources.

“AWS gives us an unmatched set of cloud services and a highly reliable infrastructure to work with as we continue to build solutions that provide borrowers and lenders with the best digital loan experiences,” Satheesh Ravala, senior vice president of cloud engineering and operations at Ellie Mae, said in a statement.

Mobileye won’t be moving all of its operations to Amazon’s cloud, but will instead rely on it to run “core workloads” that also entail a wide array of services. Those include Amazon’s compute, storage, database, analytics, machine learning and edge computing services.

The company will also build its own data lake on Amazon S3, allowing it to ingest and analyze data and video feeds from thousands of autonomous vehicles. The rapid delivery of insights generated from this data should allow it to roll out faster updates in order to fine-tune its software platform.

“Making AWS our preferred cloud provider aligns with our overall technical strategy and desired pace of innovation,” Amnon Shashua, president and chief executive officer, at Mobileye, said in a statement. “We are becoming a more agile organization on AWS.”

Ellie Mae and Mobileye join a growing list of big customers that have opted to host computing operations on Amazon’s cloud. The list includes Samsung Heavy Industries, which is using Amazon’s cloud to build an autonomous shipping platform. Others include Oath Inc., a subsidiary of Verizon Communications Inc., Comcast Cable and GoDaddy Inc., which migrated their own IT operations to Amazon earlier in the year.

How to Become a Search Engine Evaluator and Make Money From Home

Published

on

By

A hot topic these days is the side hustle or side job. Many people are looking to make extra income and want a flexible job that fits in with their life. An interesting opportunity to make money that not many people know about yet is as a search engine evaluator.

I have been working as a search engine evaluator for several months in my spare time. Since my daughter was born two years ago, I had a few different thoughts about income and working.

These two ideas stood out the most for me.

One: I wanted to increase my income. I wanted to be able to save more money for our retirement, and make regular contributions towards our daughter’s education fund.

Two: I didn’t want to take more time away from my daughter. I already work part-time outside of the home, and I didn’t want to increase that before she is in school. Whatever side hustle I have, needs to fit into our life as it is right now.

So I started brainstorming side hustle ideas. There were many businesses that I was not interested in; they just didn’t fit with my values. A job where I could set my own hours for the most part was attractive to me. It was important that it be a casual job – no rigid set hours for each week.

I ended up coming across a posting for a position as a search engine evaluator. I had never heard of this job, but I was open to looking into absolutely everything, to see if it fit my criteria above. A search engine evaluator rates and improves search engine results for the top internet search engine companies. Different tasks a search engine evaluator could participate in include web search, video evaluation, maps, local, automation projects, and others.

The requirements were that you are a person who is analytical, excellent at web-based research, and internet savvy. The job listing also state that they look for someone with a broad range of interests who also has specific areas of expertise. Some companies require a university/college degree for this position, but not all do. High speed internet is a must and some companies require a smart phone as well.

There are several companies that offer search engine evaluator or rater jobs. These include:

  • Appen (hires globally)
  • Leapforce (which has been recently acquired by its competitor – Appen)
  • Lionbridge (hires globally)
  • ZeroChaos (employs people in the United States only)
  • iSoftStone (hires globally)
  • Google (one of the few work-from-home positions offered by them)

Some companies require that you take and pass a qualification exam before you are offered a position.

Many of these companies also hire for the position of Social Media Evaluator. This is similar to a search engine evaluator position, but works with the major social networks.

This sounded like the perfect opportunity for me to try. It fit in with my goal to make more money, while at the same time not taking me away from my daughter more than I already am for my part-time work.

I applied to one company and didn’t hear anything back for a few weeks. I had actually forgotten about it by the time I heard back. Since this was side hustle money, it was never the plan for it to replace my regular income. I was invited to take the evaluation exam. With respect to the qualifying exam, my best advice is to take it seriously. Some people don’t find it too difficult but these people are in the minority. The majority of people who are offered to take the exam do not pass it on the first try. I dedicated a whole weekend to reading the provided material, and taking the exams (there are three parts to the exam). Even though I did pass, I would not say I found it easy. If you are interested in this position, study like you mean it.

After being offered a position, I had to sign a non-disclosure agreement. I mention that here because I am not allowed to disclose any confidential information including specific tasks and pay rate. I can relate some general information about the position.

There are positive and negative aspects to most jobs and a search engine evaluator position is no exception. For me personally, the pros absolutely outweigh the cons, but I include both lists so you can make up your own mind.

Search engine evaluator job pros:

  • Flexible schedule – You can make your own hours. Some evaluators work five hours a week, some work twenty five. You aren’t required to log on at specific times. This is why I can coincide this job with my toddler’s nap time.
  • Work from home – There is no commute to this job. Most jobs have the added time it takes to get to work, as well as transportation costs, which decrease the wage they are actually receiving per hour. With these positions, you can work in the comfort of your own home, trading rush hour traffic for working on your couch in your pajamas.
  • Interesting work – You are getting paid to research/learn about different things.
  • Pay – The wages for these positions vary, but are roughly $13-$15 per hour (USD).

Search engine evaluator job cons:

  • No benefits – You are hired as an independent contractor. This means you don’t receive any benefits or perks from the company. You are expected to provide your own computer, high speed internet connection, and sometimes a smart phone.
  • Frequency of pay – Most companies pay via direct deposit once a month. You have at submit your invoice to them each month so make sure you keep excellent records of time worked. If you need to be paid more frequently than once a month this might not be the job for you.
  • Responsible for your own taxes – Since you are an independent contractor the company won’t take taxes off your pay automatically. You are responsible for paying all your own taxes which again means you need to be very organized. A plus of being an independent contractor who works from home is that you should be able to write off some of your home office expenses.
  • Irregular work – A common issue with evaluators is that the workload is inconsistent from week to week. I found this to be the case myself. Some weeks I was able to work as much as I wanted (within the self-imposed limits of naptime!), other weeks there were no tasks available. If you need steady, regular income, this is likely not for you.

Since working as a search engine evaluator I love that I can completely work around my daughter’s schedule. My main issue with this job would be that there are some weeks where there is very little work available. This is a minor concern for me because this is a side hustle, and not my regular income.

A search engine evaluator job might be a great side hustle for you too if you want a flexible work-from-home job that doesn’t involve selling anything.

How to Identify the Best Web Hosting Provider

Published

on

By

There are many web hosting companies out there offering their services. Simply enter a search into Google and you will be bombarded with thousands of companies claiming to have the best hosting packages. The trick is to be able to identify which company will be the best to go with when hosting your website.

First of all, remember to steer clear of companies that offer free web hosting. There is always a catch. Sure, you may not have to pay for hosting, but think about it carefully. How is the company covering their cost for hosting you? They are plastering advertisements all over your website! This takes away from the professionalism and attractiveness of your site, and will deter internet browsers. In addition to this, there is always a limit to your free hosting package. In some cases you may not be able to have lots of graphics or flash images on your site. You may have a very low space limit, which will be irritating if you are planning on having a large site with lots of information. Another downside is that these free web hosting plans may not supply you with an email account that you can use with your domain name. Sometimes they do, but they will only give you a handful of email addresses with a tiny amount of space.

Of course, if you just want a simple personal site without email addresses, perhaps a free web hosting plan will be convenient for you. On the other hand, if you want to start a business site, it is better to find a hosting provider that will offer you a specific package. What you should be looking for is a hosting provider that will give you a breakdown of their different packages. They will explain that for a certain price you will get this much bandwidth, this many email addresses and so on. A good hosting provider will have on call support via telephone or email that is prompt and responsible. Some good hosting providers even offer training courses to assist you in learning how to manage your site.

A good, reputable website hosting provider will have a portfolio of sites that are hosting with them. If it makes you more comfortable you can contact one of their clients to find out how reliable their support is.

Beware of hosting providers that force you to sign a contract for hosting. They may wish to tie you into a hosting package for a year, with the payment requested up front. If you commit to this, you may find after a month or two that you are not entirely happy. Perhaps there are frequent email problems and the support desk of your hosting provider is never available. You may find that your site is sometimes down without warning, or you run out of space and are unable to contact anyone to purchase more. A good web hosting provider will allow you to pay for your hosting on a monthly basis, with the option to opt out whenever you wish. You can also pay up front if it is more convenient for you, but are able to get refunded if you are not happy with the service anymore.

The Newest Lengths Thieves Will Go to in Order to Steal Your Identity

Published

on

identity

There is no shortage of news stories on identity theft. That’s because identity thieves will go to any lengths to acquire your information. Once they do, they can use it in endless ways, like the poor woman who went to apply for FEMA assistance only to discover someone had applied for and received payments in her name.

There are a lot of ways identity thieves get ahold of your information that you probably already know about. We rely on companies to use software that assures identity vulnerabilities aren’t overlooked so your info is safe when you shop, you probably know not to click on questionable links in unfamiliar emails, and you know not to give your personal information over the phone when someone calls asking you to confirm your account.

Even if you’re careful, you can still become a victim of identity theft because thieves are going to new lengths to get your information.

Monitoring Your Credit

Identity thieves often get ahold of a little of your information before they go the final mile and decide your identity is even worth stealing. With just a few bits of personal information, thieves can open credit monitoring accounts with the top credit bureaus so they can see which accounts you use, and which ones you don’t.

Then, they will choose a card that you don’t use and have a new copy sent to their address. Specialty cards are especially popular, like cards from furniture stores and clothing stores, because many people open these cards to get the initial deal, then never use them again.

Pinpointing Where You Live

Not only do thieves want to see if there are any accounts you aren’t using, they may also want to see if you’ve got enough wealth to even make it worth their time. After all, it’s much more lucrative to steal the identity of someone in an upscale neighborhood than someone living in an apartment on the bad side of town.

Many identity thieves will use websites like Google Maps and Zillow to find out where you live and see exactly what your house looks like before they decide who to target.

Hacking More Than Just Computers

Computers are a popular device to hack because much of the work we do and the bills we pay are on the computer, but there are other devices that hackers can target. Some of them might surprise you.

Cell phones are a popular target, especially since they can be hacked without you having to click on a single questionable link. Tablets can be hacked too, but so can surprising devices like:

  • Smart TVs
  • Smart refrigerators
  • Baby monitors
  • Thermostats
  • Security systems
  • Voice activated systems
  • Garage door openers
  • Smart cars

Even stranger devices have been hacked. Medical devices are hackable, and one hacker even managed to hack into the aquarium thermometer at a casino. Hacking that one item enabled them to extract information from the casino’s high-roller database.

USB Charging Stations

It’s not just your devices you have to look out for. You also have to look out for the outlets where you plug in your devices.

Juice jacking is a creative way hackers are gaining access to personal information. Instead of targeting your device, they target the USB port where you plug your device in. The ports you have at home are relatively secure, but the ports you find in hotel rooms and in airport lobbies are not.

Criminals load malware on public charging stations, then the devices that are plugged in are infected with that malware, providing them with all the personal information that’s on your device.

Going Through Your Garbage

A lot of people pay a lot of attention to their security online, but many people are getting lazy when it comes to the classic ways information is stolen.

Dumpster diving thieves are still out there! That means you have to focus on ways to keep your identity safe when you throw your trash away. Shredding paper that contains your personal information is still recommended.

Keep an eye on what you throw in the actual trash, but you also have to keep an eye on items you put in the recycling bin. Thieves are more than happy to go through both!

Identity thieves are still placing phone calls and sending out emails, but they can do a lot more today than they ever could before. By staying informed, you can better protect you and your information from criminals.

React Native Vs. Swift: Choosing The Right Mobile App Development Technology In 2021

Published

hire iPhone app developer
React Native Vs. Swift

Getting torn between the native and unique hybrid app development technologies during iOS app development is quite common amongst merchants trying to take their digital solution to mobile devices. However, before you can hire iPhone app developer, getting clarity regarding such decisions is crucial to ensure your business’s success. However, doing so isn’t a game of head and tales a proper analysis of your business requirements, budgets, and user expectation is a must for you to make the right choice. It will not only ensure long-term scalability but also will guarantee a manageable iOS application for your business.    

If this dilemma is the current roadblock for your iOS app development process, stay tuned! With this blog, we will take an in-depth look into the popular hybrid and native app development technology- React Native Vs. Swift. A detailed comparison between these two technologies will help you make the right choice for catering to your business-specific needs. Moreover, it will also help you choose a suitable iOS app development company for manifesting your ideas in reality. To get started, below is a detailed introduction to each of these technologies.

Introduction To React Native

React Native is a Hybrid app development technology that helps merchants in creating cross-platform mobile apps that works using the same business logic. It is a javascript-based mobile development framework that uses React as its core technology. It has strong community support and is backed by Facebook.  

Pros Of React Native:

  • It allows developers to use the same business logic for different platforms, which makes the development process faster and more efficient. 
  • React Native also allows Hot Reloading making the review process much easier for developers. It improves the development process and reduces the chances of run-time bugs as well. 
  • This technology also empowers iOS app development services to use fast debugging and testing tools for providing efficient mobile applications.

Cons Of React Native: 

  • React Native does not fully support the rendering of native UI elements. It can make providing fully native navigation challenging for developers.
  • The framework also does not support multi-processing and parallel threading. As a result, it can significantly slow down the performance of your iOS application.

Introduction To Swift 

Swift is Apple’s official technology for the iOS app development process. It is a programming language that facilitates the development of high-speed and intuitive iOS applications. This technology can easily blend in with Apple’s Cocoa and Cocoa Touch frameworks to help merchants in crafting unique apps for their business. It is has a huge community of iPhone app development company and receives regular updates from Apple. 

Pros Of Swift:

  • Swift sports a readable and easy-to-maintain codebase, which makes the process of iOS app development faster and more manageable for developers.  
  • It has an easy-to-use syntax and also comes with a built-in error handling system to enhance the testing process. 
  • It helps developers in handling issues such as memory clogging by supporting dynamic libraries. 

Cons Of Swift:

  • It lacks support for hot reloading, which can negatively affect the developer’s experience. 
  • Debugging compile errors using the LLDB services available in Swift can be quite a time-consuming process. Instead, developers need to use Xcode.

React Native Vs. Swift: A Detailed Comparison

From the discussion above, we can easily conclude that with the help of both React Native and Swift, merchants can build amazing and out-of-the-box iOS applications. Below is a detailed list of differences between these two technologies that make them suitable for catering to different business needs:  

  • React Native makes the development process much cheaper as you don’t have to create separate apps for different platforms. Whereas, since Swift doesn’t support Android OS choosing it for app development costs much. 
  • React Native offers hot reloading, which helps merchants in making faster changes and application updates. Since Swift lacks this feature, it takes a longer development time as compared to React Native.
  •  React Native does not support rendering of a variety of Native features, whereas Swift is the official technology it provides a full-fledged native navigation experience. Hence we can conclude that Swift offers a slightly better navigation experience to users as compared to React Native. 
  • React Native uses JSX syntax, which does not have a well-defined architecture, whereas Swift offers a readable and easy-to-use syntax and codebase. It makes Swift a better fit for creating enterprise-level and complex iOS applications. 

To Wrap Up

React Native and Swift are both amazing technologies for creating iOS applications. However, both of these technologies cater to unique and different business needs. For example, React Native can be a great choice for medium-scale apps, whereas Swift can easily be used for enterprise-scale mobile applications. So, access your overall budget and business requirement before choosing between React Native and Swift. It will help you in having smooth app management and easy scalability according to your business needs in the long run.

Apple to Release the Next Generation Smartwatch with Two Larger Sizes

Published

next generation Apple watch
Next Generation Apple Watch

The next generation Apple watch announcement is just around the corner! With the passing of time, rumors and speculations are getting stronger. It is highly expected that the new Apple Watch Series 7 will feature larger screens! Each the variation of Apple Watch 7 is anticipated to have at least a 1mm increase in size. Since Apple Watch’s 6 case sizes were 40mm and 44mm, the supposed changes are 41mm and 45mm this time.

But would the larger screen affect internet usage? That’s yet to be disclosed! However, with superinternetdeals, the users can sort that out! Let’s discuss the expected changes Apple Watch 7 may come with!

Design Changes and Watch Band

A piece of information was shared on Weibo by someone named as UnclePan. As per the source, the new Apple Watch will come in two new larger sizes of 41mm and 45mm. This will replace Apple Watch Series 6.

So, it’s expected that instead of increasing a fraction of the size, Apple is planning to increase 1mm instead. This will have an overall incredible effect on the watch itself. The watch is expected to have a more refined flat edge design with better visibility. Those who love thinner display bezels will definitely love the new Apple watch.

However, after the rumors, many Apple Watch users became worried about the band issue. Especially those who already own Apple Watch Series 6 are confused would the existing band work on the next watch as well? So, to clear the confusing air, we have the news for them!

Apple Watch Series 6 users can easily migrate to the new Apple Watch Series 7 without worrying about the band. The previous bands will continue working with the new 41mm and 45mm models of the Apple Watch 7. This means the upgradation would allow the users to keep their current bands and not to get new ones.

Benefits of Larger Apple Watch Series 7

The hype for a larger Apple Watch is real! However, many critics are bashing the hype stating they don’t see any benefit of owning a larger watch. Sadly, for the decriers and lucky for the watch lovers, there are many possible benefits for a larger Apple Watch.

First of all, a larger Apple Watch can improve the overall readability index. It means, now the Apple Watch users can manage their readability and improve it better than before. Another speculated benefit is that the Apple Watch Series 7 would come with the ability to work on its own. This indicates people don’t have to carry their iPhones with them.

Instead of increase a fraction to the size, Apple authorities decided to upgrade a total of 1mm. This has to be beneficial for the users in every way. With enhanced readability, the larger panel will make life easier for the users. They can now send messages, read the details, check out photographs, and even use the calculator easily and swiftly. Imagine using a smaller size watch with chubby fingers! A larger size can at least minimize the pain for chubby finger users.

Apple authorities have already disclosed that the Apple Watch Series 7 will feature watchOS 8. The watchOS 8 will ensure additional support to the watch’s digital keys. The benefit? This will allow the users to get anywhere, either hotel rooms, their cars, or clubs with their wrist-based virtual wallets. Isn’t that an exciting and top-notch technological revolution?

Possible Upgrades

YouTube Channel Front Page Tech’s Jon Prosser came up with various alterations to the new next-generation Apple Watch. As per him, Apple has already been working on experimental colors. This is a crucial part of their redesigning strategy which involves flatter edges. This notion depicts the parallel design efficiency of the iPhone 12 and iPad Pro.

Mark Gurman from Bloomberg talked about different upgrades for Apple Watch Series 7. He speculates that there would not be just a slimmer bezel and larger size. The processor of the watch is also going to be updated with the new Time to Run mode.

There is a possibility that the latest Apple Watch will include a swim tracking feature with a larger battery backup. However, Blood Glucose Monitoring has to wait more!

Conclusion

The release date for Apple Watch 7 is September 14, where the product event will reveal everything. Shortly, everyone will see the product and the authenticity of the rumors. Under Apple’s M.O. is expected the product will hit the market no later than September 24.

oDesk Outsourcing

Published

There are many things I don’t like doing in a general work week and they normally entail processing of some kind, whether that be emails, reports or papers generated by meetings. Then there are the things that I’m not as good at (hard to believe huh?) which sometimes slide off the radar or are not done as regularly as they should be. Not having done any of the above, it hopefully gives me maximum time to concentrate on the important tasks, which are, you get the gist.

The long lost typing pool along with secretaries and Girl Fridays have long since gone to that great wood paneled office in the sky. Today’s executives answer their own mail, email, put together presentations and reports and spend time processing their life away. Instead of thinking, innovating and running companies, management executives spend inordinate amounts online processing documents, answering everyone’s emails and generally being distracted.

So do we bring back the typing pool? As tantalising as that may sound, it would be easier to start outsourcing some processing and services to get us back to concentrating on the big picture.

Micro outsourcing or liquid labour exchanges allow users to tender online for services from software engineering to plumbing. From the smallest job at the local business level to large corporations, outsourcing is seeing a new revival. Far from the jeered at call centres of India we are now able to source services and innovations from a global village where the local blacksmith has been replaced by the IT technologist from Uzbekistan.

oDesk (should I be asking for money?) which was founded by Odysseus Tsatalos in 2006 links more than 600 service providers in an online marketplace aimed at software and technology. They ask the simple questions of how to get more done with less, how to find talent and how to pay a remote team, while aiming their site at technology people looking for help with their work and also looking for technology people who want work. Other sites such as Freelancer.com.au which is the world’s largest outsourcing marketplace for small business has the facility to help you with technology, software, writing, computing, design, business, HR and many other services that could make your day a breeze.

Providing work for the most rapidly expanding technology countries keeps costs to a minimum and if you have access to the internet, then you have access to an unlimited workforce globally.

So I’m waiting on the first travel company to outsource its non revenue processes. How long did it take to put together that 20 stop round the world itinerary with cruise and coach for Mr. Smith? You have to ask yourself the question, when am I selling and when am I processing, because you only make money when selling. What about a travel auction site where customers can put together their trip ideas and then send it out to be serviced by the best price or most innovative response?
