Amazon is sitting pretty on top of the smart home with its Alexa voice-controlled Echo devices, and Google will close in later this year with its own Home assistant device. But what about Apple?

While iOS 10’s much-needed Home app for controlling all your HomeKit-compatible smart home devices is a step in the right direction, the company may need an Echo rival of its own.

Apple is reportedly working on an Echo-like smart home device according to Bloomberg

This report corroborates a earlier one from The Information earlier this year that Apple was developing its own Echo-like product based around Siri.  Read more…

Napster Founder Thinks You Should Pay $50 to Watch New Movies at Home

The Germans probably have an overwrought, seven-syllable word for extreme irony. But I’m not sure anything can do justice to Napster founder Sean Parker, arguably the founding father of internet piracy, championing a ridiculously expensive movie startup.

CIA director: Web-connected devices in your home make it easy to spy on you?

Question by Wake the Sheeple: CIA director: Web-connected devices in your home make it easy to spy on you?
http://www.wired.com/dangerroom/2012/03/petraeus-tv-remote/

New technologies are making the work of CIA Director David Petraeus a whole lot easier. According to him, the advent of wireless and web-connected devices has caused citizens to bug their own home, effectively allowing the spy agency to collect a wealth of information with great ease. If that wasn’t enough, people now readily share the most (in)significant details of their lives through Facebook, which now displays all of this information in a very convenient time-line.

Another concept that is brushed upon in this article is cloud computing. Touted as the next big thing in computer technology, cloud computing is about storing all of your data in “remote secure servers” – ultimately eliminating the need for computer hard drives and storage devices such as USB sticks. While this technology sounds very convenient, it is set to cause a drastic change in the world of computing: In just a few years, almost all of the personal files, pictures and data of computer users across the world will be stored in gigantic servers that will be owned by only a few mega-companies. Apple already has a system called iCloud that automatically copies the contents of iPhones and iPads (including pics, contacts, etc.) to a remote server. As Pertraeus himself says, all of this information is now “located, identified, monitored, and remotely controlled” by the CIA – and whoever else. Here’s an article about Petraeus love of new technologies from Wired.

I have a spare web server at home can I make money off of it?

Question by Jared M: I have a spare web server at home can I make money off of it?
I have a spare web server at home that I do not use (I have high speed internet 100mbs down 15 mbs up. I was looking for easy ways to rend it, but could not find anything online other than people selling you software and services to make your own business selling your space on your web server. My question is, is there a company out there where they rent the usage of your server, but do all the work looking for customers and they pay you for usage of their server? For example you download their software which connects it to their server cloud and they as the company rent the space and pay you for the usage of your server in their cloud. Does something like this exist at all? Is there any easy way like this to rent out the use of your server?

Hi Mukunthan L. First off this is really only in it’s infancy. It is aimed at all users , business and home as well. At the moment there are a limited number of programmes and services avalilable and no real price structures in place. I have been getting information from this site to see where it is going. http://www.nimbulus.co.uk/ten-reasons-to-move-your-data-and-IT-operations-into-the-cloud.html?utm_source=yahoo&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=cloud%20computing&utm_content=Get%2Bthe%20Facts&utm_campaign=10%2BReasons%20-%20Geotarget%3A%20England%2C%20GB
