LTE network for US public safety taking it one step at a time

The organizers of the FirstNet LTE public safety network have the frequencies and standards they need to build the system, and they know where the money?s coming from. They know how to get there from here, but it won?t be a quick trip.

FirstNet will realize a vision that emerged in the wake of the 9/11 terror attacks, using technology that didn?t exist until years later. It will be a single network linking all federal, state and local public-safety agencies in the U.S., based on the same radio spectrum and technology throughout. Though it won?t replace every public-safety radio system in use today, FirstNet will help to eliminate the crazy quilt of incompatible radio systems and frequencies that makes it hard for different teams to coordinate their efforts.

Phone unlocking bill clears US House, next step is president's signature

A bill that allows consumers to unlock their cellphones for use on other carriers passed its last hurdle in Congress on Friday, opening the way for it to become law once it is signed by President Obama.

Senate Bill 517 overturns a January 2013 decision by the Congressional Librarian that ruled the unlocking of phones by consumers fell afoul of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). It had previously been permitted under an exception to the anti-circumvention provisions of the DMCA, which are generally aimed at cracking of digital rights management technology.

Oracle's new in-memory database option could spark unanticipated costs, expert warns

Oracle database shops that have or are planning to download the latest version of 12c take warning: The vendor?s newly launched, much-hyped in-memory processing database option is turned on by default, according to one expert.

The in-memory option costs US$23,000 per processor, according to an Oracle price list updated this week. Customers who don?t realize the option has been switched on may find their next license audit ?um, more entertaining,? wrote Kevin Closson, a senior director in EMC?s performance engineering group and a former Oracle architect who worked on its Exadata database machine, in a post on his personal blog this week.

How to get photos from your digital camera to Instagram in 3 easy steps

Instagram may be designed for smartphones, but you've probably noticed that the best photos have a distinctly non-camera-phone vibe to them. Savvy Instagrammers post high-quality DSLR or point-and-shoot photos instead. You can create a high-quality Instagram feed, too, with a little help from Dropbox and your iOS or Android device.

Step One: Transfer and pre-process your images

The goal is to get the photo off your camera and onto a phone or mobile device with the Instagram app installed. The first step starts with your camera. 

Importing your photos

Transferring your photos to your computer only adds an extra minute or two, and has the added benefit of letting you use your computer to back up and organize your photos.

SEC drops probe into Facebook's pre-IPO sales disclosures

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has dropped its investigation into disclosures about Facebook advertising sales before the company went public in 2012.

Facebook said Thursday in an SEC filing that it was notified by the agency in May that the inquiry had been terminated and no enforcement action was recommended.

The SEC launched its investigation over claims that Facebook shared lowered advertising-sales projections immediately before its initial public offering with some analysts, who then shared that information with a select group of investors without disclosing it to the wider public.
