Submission + - Amazon's Secret Plan For Same Day Delivery (yahoo.com)

lipanitech writes: The vision goes well beyond just groceries. Groceries are a Trojan Horse. The dirty secret of Amazon is that it really doesn't distinguish between a head of lettuce and a big screen TV. If Amazon can pull off same-day grocery delivery in NYC, it ostensibly means consumers can order anything online and receive it the same day. By logical extension, that means Jeff Bezos, the CEO of Amazon, is on the cusp of rendering every retailer on earth obsolete.

With the way world is now a days everyone has a voice and can be vocal more publicly now then ever. Opie and Anthony complain all the time about all the hate tweets they get yet same people that are complaining still listen. The same goes for everything else with social media being what it is made everyone a target cause it's so easy to get a quick thought out there via a cell phone a twitter that people really don't have a chance to think and say "Ok is this a good idea to say". On the flip side of that instead of saying something to 1 person you now say it to millions so the chance of you getting fragged is much higher. It's old joke of with social media why write something on a bathroom wall where 5 people will see it when you can write it on your facebook wall and millions see it.

Google tried something like this years ago with Google apps for government. http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9179692/Google_rolls_out_Apps_for_Government_ Google did have quite a few people move over to the cloud system http://tech.slashdot.org/story/13/05/10/2014246/boston-replacing-microsoft-exchange-with-google-apps But overall in Google earning reports they have said the product was not a great success. With Microsoft doing a cloud OS maybe but I don't have high hopes for the product.

Submission + - HackRF, an open source SDR platform (kickstarter.com)

lipanitech writes: HackRF is an open source hardware project to build a Software Defined Radio (SDR) peripheral. SDR is the application of Digital Signal Processing to radio waveforms. It is similar to the software-based digital audio techniques that became popular a couple of decades ago. Just as a sound card in a computer digitizes audio waveforms, a software radio peripheral digitizes radio waveforms. It's like a very fast sound card with the speaker and microphone replaced by an antenna. A single software radio platform can be used to implement virtually any wireless technology (Bluetooth, ZigBee, cellular technologies, FM radio, etc.).
