And when the two are on the defensive side … Click here if you’re unable to view the photo gallery on your mobile device.LOS ANGELES — Andrew Bogut and Draymond Green make for an unlikely duo.They literally grew up on opposite sides of the world and their paths to the NBA and the Warriors were near opposite, too.But the two have nevertheless become basketball soulmates; bound by enviable smarts, unrelenting competitiveness, and a true lack of care of what anyone thinks about them.
SAN FRANCISCO — Kevon Looney’s Warriors stock has gradually ascended. During his first two seasons, he scrapped for minutes. By last summer, he was an invaluable piece.His next role? Starter.Fresh off signing a three-year, $15 million deal to stay with Golden State, Looney will, for the time being, man the five-slot for the Warriors — a promotion due as much to circumstance as to Looney’s productivity.General manager Bob Myers kicked off media day by announcing that Willie Cauley-Stein will …

Initial customers include Motorola Corporation and Canonical Ltd.And yesterday, they announced a significant update that demonstrates they will be an open-source alternative to the proprietary microblogging services that cater to the enterprise.StatusNet is an exception in the enterprise market. It’s an open-source software project, started by members of the open source and wiki communities. The enterprise service is priced on an annual basis. It ranges in cost from $1,000 to $10,000 per year. Customers get access to different levels of service based on package they choose to purchase. For example, at the $1,000 level package, the service includes access to the forums. It includes email support and response time within one day. A $10,000 package includes six hours of best practice consulting and response within one hour to support requests.Open-source software is proving to be a winner in the enterprise. As we noted earlier this week, a number of enterprise providers have committed developer communities. Alfresco Software is a shining example. According to Matt Asay, the company has grown every quarter since its launch in 2005, “with its last quarter seeing a 30-percent quarter-over-quarter increase on an already large base.”With a committed developer community, an open-source enterprise provider can show significant improvements in its product. Today, StatusNet released StatusNet 0.9.0, the latest version of its software, representing eight month of development by the StatusNet developer community.The feature list scrolls down the page. It includes leading edge support for OStatus, the new distributed status update standard based on PubSubHubbub, Salmon, Webfinger, and Activity Streams.Significant: StatusNet now has no fixed content size. “Notice size is configurable, from 1 to unlimited number of characters. Default is still 140!” This could possibly mean that the service can be similar to Tumblr or Posterous that fits into the enterprise.Other updates include:We expect that StatusNet Enterprise will rise fast as a contender in the enterprise market. It’s extensible, has the features that the enterprise customer wants and it has a strong developer community. That’s a winning combination that makes StatuNet a potential open-source star in the enterprise.Support for location using the Geolocation API.Support for OAuth authentication in the Twitter API.An authentication plugin for LDAP servers.Support for Facebook Connect IT + Project Management: A Love Affair Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now
Worldwide mobile data traffic is due to increase 26-fold to 75 exabytes annually, says networking giant Cisco in its latest report, the Cisco Visual Networking Index Global Mobile Data Traffic Forecast for 2010 to 2015. To put that in perspective, that’s the equivalent of 19 billion DVDs, 536 quadrillion SMS text messages or 75 times the amount of global Internet IP data (fixed and mobile data) in the year 2000.It’s also a major increase from Cisco’s report last year, which forecasted an increase to 40 exabytes by 2014.If you don’t know what an exabyte is, it’s 1 billion gigabytes. A gigabyte is a term you’re probably familiar with as most personal computer hard drives are measured in gigabytes (abbreviated “GB”). For example, a low-end MacBook Pro has a 250 GB hard drive.Compared with Last YearIn last year’s annual snapshot of mobile data traffic, Cisco had predicted traffic would jump from 0.09 exabytes per month in 2009 to 0.2 exabytes per month in 2010, and by 2014, it would reach 3.6 exabytes per month.Those figures (at least for 2010), were right on the mark – even a little lower than what the actual data collected ended up showing. According to this latest report, the monthly data traffic in 2010 was 237 petabytes per month, while Cisco had predicted 204.8 petabytes previously (0.2 exabytes = 204.8 petabytes). By 2015: 6.3 Exabytes per MonthNow Cisco is extending its earlier forecast to 2015, the year when mobile data traffic will reach 6.3 exabytes per month, a compound annual growth rate of 92%.By 2015, there will be more than 5.6 billion personal devices, like smartphones and tablets, connected to mobile networks as well as 1.5 billion machine-to-machine nodes – a stat that’s equivalent to nearly one mobile connection for every person on earth, says Cisco.Today’s average mobile connection generates 65 megabytes of traffic per month, which is about 15 MP3 music files. By 2015, that will increase 17 times to 1,118 megabytes per month, or 260 MP3’s.Growth Trends: Mobile Video, TabletsThe continuing mobile data surge comes from, in large part, mobile video traffic. This traffic is expected to represent 66% of all mobile data traffic by 2015. Tags:#mobile#NYT#Trends#web Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Also expected to grow dramatically is tablet device use, which will increase 205-fold from 2010 to 2015, the highest growth rate for any device category. Combined with smartphones, laptops and other portable tablet devices, this group of personal devices will account for 87% of the global mobile traffic by 2015.Tablets in particular will generate 248 petabytes per month by 2015 – that’s more than the entire global mobile network did in 2010 (237 petabytes per month)! The same will also be true for machine-to-machine connections – 295 petabytes in 2015. The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology sarah perez Related Posts By RegionMobile data traffic is now outpacing fixed broadband traffic, says Cisco. Last year, it grew 4.2 times as fast. The regions with the highest growth rates are the Middle East and Africa, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 129%.Latin America will have a 111% CAGR, Central and Eastern Europe will have a 102% CAGR, Asia-Pacific a 101% CAGR, Western Europe a 91% CAGR, North America an 83% CAGR and Japan a 70% CAGR. What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … For a more detailed look into these findings, you can download the full report from Cisco.com here. Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Contributing to the increased consumption, too, is the increasing global mobile network connection speeds. The average connection speed doubled from 2009 to 2010 and will increase 10-fold by 2015.
