The Internet of Things Is Steering the OnDemand Economy Want to Be

first_imgOctober 19, 2016 Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Uber is the company everyone wants to be. It’s the poster child for leveraging an internet-connected device to solve a unique problem. Uber couldn’t have existed before smartphones became a widespread phenomen, of course. But today we can all hail a car with a swipe and a tap, thanks to dual internet connectivity and mobile GPS.Smartphones were the first internet-connected devices, but they are far from the last. As the Internet of Things (IoT) evolves, these next-generation improvements will push on-demand businesses to explore hundreds of new possibilities.Related: 4 Reasons to Be Excited by the ‘Internet of Things’The game-changer here? Data. Connected devices and their data make every on-demand business possible.Sensory evolutionWith smartphone features such as fingerprint scanning, barometers, accelerometers, light sensors and more, entrepreneurs have access to data they’ve never seen before. And as smartphones add more bells and whistles, companies have even more data points to build around.Beyond sensory data from hardware, though, on-demand businesses can leverage a large quantity of stored data. Storing data around criteria like behavior, preferences and reliability allows companies to act more efficiently and optimize the user experience. For example, Uber wants to make sure users never have to type an address again.Along with data, the IoT is improving internet connectivity and voice recognition to provide even better user experience. These devices are getting smarter on their own, as well as collectively.A stand-alone voice recognition device is great by itself, but an Amazon Echo is even better. This device can access all the power of Amazon for tasks such as ordering groceries, playing music and restocking supplies — using just the power of your voice. Other devices such as Cortana, Alexa and the new Google Home will make on-demand services available through the sound of a person’s voice rather than at the touch of a button.Innovation on demandFor today’s entrepreneurs, all of these advances and countless data sources mean many more opportunities to innovate and win big. So, if you’re an entrepreneur, here are a few ways to capitalize as the on-demand economy and IoT evolve:1. Take advantage of predictive analytics.Uber uses data to provide rides, but it also uses heat maps to analyze patterns and help drivers be in the right place at the right time. Predictive analytics allows fresh-food delivery services — like Munchery and Sprig — to monitor supplies and spot and respond to trends. None of these on-demand platforms would have been possible without the data we have today.If you want to jump into the on-demand game, discern what problems you can solve using data. The most successful on-demand players connect these data points to provide a better, faster, more seamless user experience.Related: 8 Ways the ‘Internet of Things’ Will Impact Your Everyday Life2. Spot a profitable niche.Another great thing about data is that it no longer has to solve the huge issues. Entrepreneurs can now form companies to solve hyperspecific problems, with data to back it up. For example, Petnet helps manage the feeding of your four-legged friends. Its internet-connected food container dispenses portions at appropriate times and quantities for your pet.One word of caution: Make sure the problem you are looking to solve is big enough to be applied across use cases, but never be afraid to go small in your niche.3. Grab that low-hanging fruit.Because the automation revolution is happening across the board, entrepreneurs with industry expertise can solve problems for specific verticals. Smart-lock maker August, for one, saw potential in another on-demand stalwart, Airbnb. Hosts can use internet-connected locks to coordinate keyless guest entry, remotely and without hassle. This solution was not possible a few years ago — but the need wasn’t there, either.Related: How to Succeed in the On-Demand EconomyKeep streamlining and efficiency top of mind as you scout out your next target for automation. Whatever industry you work in, data and internet connectivity can probably improve a piece of it.With connected devices and their data, Uber and other first-generation on-demand companies paved the way for the Internet of Things to revolutionize our lives. Now, it’s up to today’s entrepreneurs to innovate the innovators.

uTorrent Forum latest casualty in Hacking Gone Wild

first_imguTorrent Forum latest casualty in Hacking Gone Wild by Martin Brinkmann on June 08, 2016 in Security – 6 commentsWhen you open the official uTorrent web forum right now, a security advisory notifies you that forum data has been compromised and that attackers were able to download the forum user list.Users of the forum should consider passwords used on the forum as compromised even though they have not been available in clear text but as hashed passwords.The company suggests to update all third-party accounts where the same password has been used, especially if the same username or email address was used as well.uTorrent ForumThe full announcement reads:On June 6th, 2016, BitTorrent was made aware of a security issue involving the vendor which powers our forums.The vulnerability appears to have been through one of the vendor’s other clients, however it allowed attackers to access some information on other accounts.As a result, attackers were able to download a list of our forum users. We are investigating further to learn if any other information was accessed.Our vendor has made backend changes so that the hashes in the file do not appear to be a usable attack vector.As a precaution, we are advising our users to change their passwords. While the passwords may not be used as a vector on the forums, those hashed passwords should be considered compromised. Anyone using the same password for forums as well as other places is strongly advised to update their passwords and/or practice good personal security practices.The announcement highlights that the attackers managed to use a vulnerability on another client of the forum vendor to attack the uTorrent forum indirectly and grab the list of users from the site.The forum is powered by Invision Power, a company that is offering enterprise services such as managed plans and an enterprise platform that hosts forums.Additionally, it is unclear currently if other data has been dumped as well.The uTorrent forum has over 380,000 members according to TorrentFreak, and is visited by tens of thousand of users daily.Apart from the direct damage caused by the hack, there is also a chance that the data may be used to identify users and link them to posts they have made on the forum.One possible outcome of the hack could be a series of ransomware / phishing / social engineering emails, for instance emails claiming to have been sent by law enforcement agencies.The uTorrent Forum hack is just one in a series of hacks that originated in 2016 or came to light when hackers offered huge password databases on the darknet.Was one of your email addresses or accounts listed in one of the hacks?

Low Note

first_imgSydney’s morning routine didn’t start like her girlfriends’. She stood in front of a bathroom mirror, splashed her face with warm water, squirted a dollop of shaving cream on her palm, lathered up her face and began to shave.Until recently, Sydney’s face was hairless, like any other teenage girl. The whiskers had begun as a few strands on her chin. She shrugged it off. Her grandma and aunts had some hair on their chins, too. Perhaps this was just part of growing up, she thought.But now it was impossible to ignore — it had become a beard. When she skipped a morning shave, her classmates noticed. They called her “bearded lady” and “circus freak.”last_img

India Supreme Court sets July deadline in battle to legalize gay sex

first_imgIn its ongoing deliberations over whether to repeal Section 377 of the India’s penal code, the country’s Supreme Court today asked the Indian government to explain its stand on consensual sexual relations between same sex adults. GAYSTARNEWS- The Supreme Court members said Parliament should decided whether to repealing the law, not the judiciary. Local religious groups broadly welcomed the court’s decision, but many international organizations, including the United Nations, criticized it.Rather than being an anarchic, under-used piece of legislation, authorities across India used the Supreme Court ruling to once again prosecute LGBT people.Section 377 was cited in the arrest of 600 people in 2014 and over 1,400 in 2015. It has also made it more difficult to promote HIV awareness.Right to privacyIn early 2017, the Supreme Court agreed to consider petitions challenging its earlier verdict. It said petitions would be considered by a five-member board.In August 2017, the Court ruled ‘Right to Privacy is an integral part of Right to Life and Personal Liberty.’Campaigners believe this ruling nullifies Section 377 as it means consenting LGBT adults have a right to privacy.The Supreme Court’s five-member board reconvened to begin discussions on Section 377 on Wednesday 17 January 2018. Today’s demand means the Court is demanding the government make a decision with regards to gay sex.Its decision will have huge implications. India is the second most populated country on earth, with 1.3 billion inhabitants, and an estimated LGBT population of 78million.See alsoGay drama gets child-friendly movie rating in India Got a news tip?

It’s something legislative members have previously appeared to prevaricate over.LGBTI advocates have declared the ultimatum a ‘watershed’ moment in the ongoing campaign to legalize homosexuality in the country.Ashok Row Kavi, chairperson of Humsafar Trust, a charity that works with India’s LGBT community, told Thomson Reuters Foundation today’s demand was ‘a watershed in the whole fight against Section 377.‘The government will have to decide whether this colonial law should still stand relevant in a country that has its own constitution that protects fundamental rights of its citizens.’Section 377 in IndiaSection 377 of India’s penal code dates back to 1861, when the country was under British rule. It broadly criminalized any ‘carnal intercourse against the order of nature with any man, woman or animal.’ Those found guilty face up to ten years in prison.Campaigners were jubilant when the High Court of Delhi repealed the law with regard to consenting adults in 2009. However, their jubilation turned to dismay and anger when two members of the Supreme Court of India overturned that judgment in 2013. eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading…last_img read more

Marching against illegal abortion

first_imgMEC Doctor Sibongiseni Dhlomo led a large group of protesters on an Anti-Illegal Abortion March on Friday morning.The march stemmed from concern about how many illegal abortions are being performed in the Ladysmith area.The march started at the Department of Health offices in Lyell Street, proceeding up Lyell Street and down Murchison Street to end at the Town Hall. Included in the participants were doctors and nurses.The marchers stopped to remove ‘Free and Safe Abortion’ posters along the way, all the while singing and chanting that “illegal abortion must fall”.  They also handed out pamphlets that contained advice on what steps and precautions to take when terminating an unwanted pregnancy. Once the group came to a standstill at the Town Hall, the MEC delivered a speech through a loudspeaker, in which he thanked all the participants.  He challenged the municipality and the police to help to make sure that the illegal abortion posters do not go back up.  Deputy Mayor Sindi Mfusi stated that the police have previously arrested people who practice these illegal abortions.Members of the police and municipality signed a petition and gave their opinion about illegal abortion.The anti-illegal abortion campaign has been launched in Pietermaritzburg, as well as other areas.
