USB 3.1 Type C scores on live demo, more than 800MBps for both reading and writing.

I think it's about time to upgrade our pc's with faster hard discs and better throughput. Usb 3.1 is here ... live in CES 2015 and it SCORES ...
For the demo, the group used two Samsung SSD 840 Evo drives together in a RAID 0 setup. Connected to a computer using a Type-C connection, the benchmark test showed a sustained speed of more than 800MBps for both read and write. Prior to USB 3.1, this type of speed was only available with a Thunderbolt connection.
USB Type-C can also carry much higher power than USB 3.0 and going forward there will be many mobile devices, even laptops, that can be powered via the USB cable instead of using a separate power adapter.

And here we have a small history on usb revisions


3D Scanner

Just fresh from CES 2015 .. Fuel3D Scanify

The Scanify is the world's first 3D scanner that combines precalibrated stereo cameras with photometric imaging to capture a 3D image in a tenth of a second. A handheld point-and-shoot 3D scanner, the Scanify can scan an object in less than a second. It'll cost, though: $1,490

[Holographic 3D Smartphone] Takee 1 World's First Holographic 3D Smartphone

A Chinese company claims to have produced the world's first smartphone with a holographic interface. It's called the Estar Takee 1, and no, we'd never heard of the company before, either. To generate a holographic image, the Takee phone has four front-facing cameras, which track the user's eyes to create a three-dimensional image. If that sounds familiar, it's the same approach taken by Amazon with its Fire Phone.
Does that make the world's first claim redundant? Maybe not. A promo video, along with the official page advertising the device, all make it seem like the Takee takes its holographic effect and moves it beyond just the interface, and apply it to games, movies, video calls, and a variety of other interesting features. However, without seeing the device in action, it's difficult to know exactly how true all this is.
For example, the video shows the phone "projecting" a 3D image off the screen, whether it's from an app or an incoming video call, which is really exciting. If it can really do it. The footage gives the impression everyone can see the holographic boy on the screen, but if the cameras are only tracking the user's eyes, that probably won't be the case. The same can be said for the explosions, racing cars, and 3D galaxies.
The website, according to translations, talks about several features built into the operating system which makes use of the 3D tech. The cameras can recognize gestures such as those for unlocking the phone or operating the touchscreen, so swipes in the air could be used to navigate through home screens. We've seen something like this on the Galaxy Note 3, and also heard about a similar feature on a future Nokia Windows Phone device.
Takee's phone is otherwise relatively unremarkable. It has a 5.5-inch 1080p screen, a 13-megapixel camera, a 2,500mAh battery, 32GB of memory, and a 2GHz octa-core MediaTek processor with 2GB of RAM. A white and a black version will be joined by one wrapped in 18k gold. An unusual stand for the device can be seen in some pictures, which appears to include a set of speakers. If the splash page on Takee's site is correct, the phone will go on sale later today, but only in China.

The Science of Happiness

“The Science of Happiness” is the first MOOC to teach the ground-breaking science of positive psychology, which explores the roots of a happy and meaningful life. Students will engage with some of the most provocative and practical lessons from this science, discovering how cutting-edge research can be applied to their own lives. Created by UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center, the course will zero in on a fundamental finding from positive psychology: that happiness is inextricably linked to having strong social connections and contributing to something bigger than yourself—the greater good. Students will learn about the cross-disciplinary research supporting this view, spanning the fields of psychology, neuroscience, evolutionary biology, and beyond.

Top-10 Google Chrome addons for SALESFORCE

I love Salesforce .. have I mentioned that before? Well, it's a big part of my life and this post is dedicated to all of the people who spend their days on SF keyboards and their nights on DreamForce's videos!

Top-10 of best Google chrome addons for Salesforce [MY personal/humble opinion]:

1. Advanced Formula Editor - Enhances the formula editor textareas to have syntax highlighting, tabbing, parenthesis matching, and find and replace. Was recommended on Dreamforces 13-14.

2. Logins - This extension manages your login information and lets you quickly login. 

3. SalesForce Navigator - This extension helps you get to any salesforce page quickly. Just type in what you need to do.

4. SalesForce Admin Checkall - Salesforce Admin Check All is an extension that enhances the Salesforce Setup pages by adding "check all" checkboxes to various checkbox lists. 

5. Profile Comparator for Salesforce - Compare Salesforce user profiles and see all differences in just four clicks.

6. Unofficial Workbench tool - This is the unofficial version of the Salesforce Workbench for Google Chrome.

7. Sales Search - Easy to use search tool for sales reps looking to streamline their constant searching and sourcing. Available search options include: SalesForce, MyStats, LinkedIn, Google, Gmail, Hoovers, Facebook,Google+,Twitter

8. Salesforce Sidebar - The Chrome sidebar is a beautiful, clutter-free way to work with your customer records without opening Brisk gives you the most relevant information at the right time and helps you not forget your leads and opportunities. 

9. Salesforce Id Paster -  If you often migrate record of data into and out of the Salesforce database, then you know that sometimes you need to copy a Salesforce ID from an external program like Excel, and paste it directly onto the end of a Salesforce URL in the Chrome omnibox, in order to visit that IDs web page

10. Sandbox Favicon - Superimposes an "S" on the standard cloud favicon for all sandbox tabs in a Chrome window.UPDATE: also adds a prefix to the tab, e.g.: (na13) Account: ABC Textiles

Disclosure: NONE ... nobody paid me for this  ;-) It's a small payback to this GREAT salesforce community. All these addons, I think they worth it BUT most of all, they have lots of positive reviews [over 4 out of 5]


Open multiple links at once. I use it EVERY day on Salesforce

Salesforce1 Simulator : Click on the device's home button to see options for resizing, minimizing, closing, and toggling whether it should always be on top.Click and drag anywhere other than the screen to move the window.

If you have more useful addons, this is a good place to post them on comments!
