Vine App

vine logo

Chances are if you have an iPhone, Android, or smartphone you have heard of Vine. Vine is a mobile application bought by Twitter in October 2012. The app was then released to the app store in January of 2013 and then was made available for Android devices in June of 2013. Twitter only paid $30 million for the app and ever since then it has been an extreme success. There hasn’t been a newer social network that has been able to enter the scene. Right now Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter all dominate the market for social media. Newer successes like Snapchat and Vine have entered as a new means of social media. Vine has been successful due to the fact that it was implemented properly.

Vine currently allows users to follow, like, and revine videos. All this social interaction allows for videos to go viral. Gaining followers two years later can be difficult and one of the easiest things to do is just buy vine followers. This way you reach a larger target audience before you even make your first video. On vine users are judged based on their unique content. You only have six seconds to create something worth sharing and every second is key. Users have their own personalities and ideas. Being unique on an app that is already two years old is absolutely necessary if you are hoping to become popular.

A lot of Vine’s popularity could also be attributed to YouTube and the creation of user generated montages. You can imagine how many videos have to go into a five minute montage. In case you can’t do that math, it is fifty! The question also comes in the monetization of these videos. Users on YouTube obviously can’t claim money for the views generated by these montages. They don’t own the content and neither do the users. These videos are fun to watch though as most of the people on Vine are extremely funny and know how to make the users laugh. The comedy section is probably the most popular section on Vine.…

Lizard Squad Using Booter Tools

Lizard Squad has become one of the most notorious outspoken internet groups. You may have heard of them through Twitter because of their attacks on popular gaming providers like Xbox, Blizzard, and PlayStation network. These attacks are performed with servers with attack scripts on them. These scripts are able to send massive attacks through means of just a few servers. It is said that some of them were all performed with a combination of booter tools that enable them to attack these services and take them down for hours. These services aren’t very expensive either and their prices can range from $5-10. In looking at price comparisons it is cheaper to buy a few booters for $50 rather than buy an entire server for $200.

Lizard Squad likes to share their attacks through Twitter but this was stopped shortly after another group named Finest Squad reportedly talked to Twitter support and had their accounts banned. Jordie, the leader of Lizard Squad said a ban wave was in affect by Twitter and the accounts and many others were closed as a result. Right now Lizard Squad has plans for December 25th. They plan to stop services like Xbox and PSN for the “Lulz.” Though, Jordie has claimed that Lizard Squad has served its purpose since their attacks can no longer be broadcasted through Twitter.

Finest Squad has claimed to of “doxed” the members of Lizard Squad and since the information was posted a few members dropped out and the group went silent for a few days. Through a #DramaAlert post by DJ Keemstar it was shown that much of the information was false and Jordie begged the representative from Finest Squad to prove that such information was true.

Through means of social media, attacks like the ones performed by Lizard Squad can be made public. Most people presume that attacks like these are in the underground and aren’t heard of often. Truth be told most of them aren’t. Groups like Anonymous started sharing their attacks through Social media but generally speaking there is no leader of Anonymous. In the case of Lizard Squad there isn’t a hierarchy but there are clear people that represent the group and their actions against companies. Only time will tell if these people will be apprehended and brought to justice. For the time being though they will continue to be the Lizards that they are, lurking the depths of the internet.…

6 Most Important Technologies Introduced In 2014

The technological advances have become very important for the survival. No doubt, scientists and technologists have made enough technologies but it is necessary to invent other things in order to survive in the technology world. Most of the people already know the biggest Technology Innovations made in 2014. However, it is necessary to repeat the discussion again in order to inform others. The year 2014 is a special memory for the people who love to use the modern technologies. From automobiles to medical sciences, education to sports and transport to space science each and everything has been changed tremendously. Let’s see some important technologies having a potential to bring changes in this world.

Agricultural drones:

These drones are not related to the honeybee because these are related to the high tech drones being used for the agricultural purposes. Scientists have installed the excellent quality lens in the cameras in order to take the overview of crops and other agricultural activities. These drones have been designed to enhance the agricultural productivity by examining the crop situation and condition precisely.

Brain mapping:

Yes, it is just like the road mapping. Now it is possible to map a brain with the help of this technology. The neuroscientists are going t see the brain functions with the help of Brain’s Three Dimensional Atlas. It can see the human brain with an excellent magnifying quality.

Neuromorphic Chips:

These are very important for the artificial intelligence creation. The companies are trying hard to develop a system to understand the man made creations and biological systems. It is believed that Neuromorphic Chips will help to understand this complex relationship in a better way. This chip has extraordinary potential to process the sensory data.

Genome editing:

As a matter of fact, we are moving towards the improvement of body systems of organisms. Recently, Chinese scientists have created monkeys with the special genetic makeup or mutation. Scientists have used the CRISPR that is a well known DNA engineering technology. This technology is commonly used to fertilize the eggs. This creation has made other scientists conscious about the improvement of human disorder treatments. For example, the scientists are trying to develop better treatments for Alzheimer and Autism.

Agile Robots:

Creating the dynamic balance is very difficult. No doubt, the robots are being used everywhere in the world but there is a need to produce confidence, coordination, direction and balance to improve this technology. Recently, the Japanese scientists have designed robots with extraordinary artificial intelligence to walk on all types of surfaces. Even and uneven surface walking is the special character of these new robots.

Solar and wind power:

Transforming the electricity or power production methods is one of the most challenging situations in this world. The environmental risks are forcing the power and energy producers to avoid thermal and atomic energy production methods. The solar and wind energy projects are successful examples for the world to create a safe environment.  By adding these two sources it is possible to make this world a better place for humans and other organisms.…
