What Makes Viber Attractive?

According to Rakuten, Viber has 300 million registered users, including more than 100 million monthly active users. That certainly makes it a big player among communication apps that offer free voice calls, text messaging and other social networking featrures.

But Viber also faces powerful competitors with overlapping services. As a free voice call service, Viber competes against Skype, which has been popular since the pre-smartphone era.

What’s Rakuten’s Plan for Viber? Ask Wuaki.tv

Rakuten’s purchase of messaging service Viber is just the latest signal of the Japanese e-commerce company’s ambitious global expansion plans -- and could be a sign of quicker expansion in the future.

Just ask one of Rakuten’s previous targets, Wuaki.tv founder Jacinto Roca.

After Rakuten bought the site in 2012, it quickly jumped into the UK market. Now, pushed by Rakuten, it is exploring launches in France, Germany and Italy as early as this year, Mr. Roca said.

General Dynamics Gets $10 Billion Saudi Arms Order

The Canadian subsidiary of U.S. arms maker General Dynamics has won a $10 billion order for armored vehicles for Saudi Arabia.

The vehicles will be produced by General Dynamics Land Systems-Canada (GDLS) in London, Ontario, and the deal could be worth up to $13 billion if all options are exercised, according to securities filings. The agreement also includes associated equipment, training and support services.

Apple ‘exploring move into electric cars’

The San Francisco Chronicle newspaper is reporting that Apple’s merger and acquisition chief Adrian Perica met with Elon Musk, CEO of electric car manufacturers Tesla last spring.

Apple has previously shown its hand in this market and announced deals with BMW, Daimler, Mercedes and Honda to produce smart dashboards featuring iOS, the same operating system used by iPads and iPhones.

Big Data: Dead By Definition, Alive In Practice

Big data is at a crossroads. On one hand, big data is dead, the term having been used so often that it’s been stripped of tangible value.

On the other hand, big data has never been so alive, as more companies than ever are trying to improve so-called big data analytics. How can such a dichotomy exist? The answer can be found in the enormous gap between what big data means by definition and what it really means in the important practice of data management.

Natural Language Processing: Big Data’s Role

Computers do many things faster and more efficiently than the human brain, but they’re decidedly inferior when it comes to extracting meaning from human language. As BigData-Startups.com founder Mark van Rijmenam writes in a recent blog post, the key stumbling block here is that computers understand “unambiguous and highly structured” programming language, while human language is a minefield of nuance, emotion, and implied intent.

Behavior Analysis: New Weapon To Fight Hackers

As the hacking pandemic sweeps through companies, a startup says analytics can help. Cybereason, co-founded by Lior Div, a former cybercrime expert in the Israeli intelligence agency, uses new algorithms to fight what it calls “malops” -- malicious operations perpetrated by hackers who break into a company's network.

  • Embedded Processor Selection Using FPGA-based Profiling
    Fadi Obeidat* and Robert H. Klenke**
    * Intel Corporation, Austin, TX, USA
    ** Virginia Commonwealth University, Virginia, USA


    In embedded systems, modeling the performance of off-the-shelf processors is very important to enable the designer to estimate the capability of each candidate processor against the target application. Considering the large number of available embedded processors, the need has increased for building an infrastructure by which it is possible to estimate the performance of a given application on a certain processor with a minimum of time and resources. This paper presents the use a Xilinx MicroBlaze softcore processor ...
