GOOGLE SIGNS $1.1 BILLION DEAL WITH HTC

GOOGLE SIGNED 1.1 BILLION DOLLARS WITH HTC : TOP 8 THINGS TO KNOW 


1. Google is making another big bet on the smartphone market. The company has announced acquisition of a part of Taiwan-based HTC's smartphone division. Here's all you need to know about the Google's latest hardware acquisition.

2. Google will pay $1.1 billion in cash to acquire a part of HTC's Pixel smartphone division. Google's head of hardware, Rick Osterloh said in a blog post that with this agreement, a team of HTC talent will join Google as part of the hardware organization.

3. The deal no where means that HTC is bidding goodbye to the smartphone market. HTC will still continue to make its own branded smartphones. It will also be able to put its research in future smartphones, like it did with HTC U11 and its 'Edge Sense' feature.

4. The deal marks Google's second bid at smartphone manufacturing. The first being in five years back in 2012, when Google acquired Motorola in a $12.5 billion deal. Two years later, the search giant sold Motorola to Lenovo for $3 billion. Some other big acquisition of the search giant include YouTube in 2006 for $1.6 billion, Waze for $1.3 billion and Nest for $3.2 billion.

5. As a part of the deal, HTC will receive a non-exclusive license for HTC's. intellectual property. It is, however, so far not clear if HTC will also be able to share its IP with a third party post this deal.

6. HTC will be retaining its Vive division. The company also said that it will continue its focus technologfies like Internet of Things, augmented reality and artificial intelligence.

7. HTC is also the manufacturer of Google's Pixel smartphones for this year as well as were for the last year's models. "These future fellow Googlers are amazing folks we’ve already been working with closely on the Pixel smartphone line, and we're excited to see what we can do together as one team," Osterloh wrote in the blog post.

8. Google's association with HTC goes a long way back. The company made the first-ever Android phone - HTC Dream. HTC also made Google's first Nexus smartphone - Nexus One in 2010 followed by Nexus 9 tablets in 2014.

9. HTC’s worldwide smartphone market share declined to 0.9% last year from a peak of 8.8% in the year 2011, according to data research firm IDC. As for Google Pixel, it held less than 1% market share since it was launched a year ago.

Top 10 Programming Languages in 2017

Programming is something vast and rather individual as each developer chooses tools that are most convenient for them. However, certain languages, platforms and frameworks have claimed themselves as one of the easiest and most efficient to use. Thus we have collected for you top-10 programming languages loved by developers nowadays. Which one is your favorite?

1. Python

Python is a dynamic and general-purpose language that emphasizes code readability and enables developers to use fewer lines of code (in comparison with Java or C++). It supports multiple programming paradigms and has a large standard library.
Developers love this language for clear syntax, good OOP support and great shortcuts.

2. C

C is a general-purpose imperative language that supports structured programming, recursion and lexical variable scope. It is designed to encourage cross-platform programming and is available on many platforms.
This language is valued for being clear, providing access to hardware and making it possible to create tiny binaries.

3. Java

Java is one the leading choices among developers all over the world. This language is object-oriented and class-based and follows the “WORA” principle: write once, run anywhere.
People love Java for its concurrency (comparing it to be better than Python, for example), great variety of libraries and steadily good performance. Community is huge as well, meaning Java fans can always get a lot of support.

4. ะก++

This language is compiled, imperative and program-oriented and allows low-level memory manipulation. C++ influenced a number of other languages, such as C# or Java and is used for a variety of purposes.
Its key features that make it stand out are strong, static type system (making it possible to catch more errors within a compile time), ability to use it in a few programming styles, good performance and expressiveness.

5. C#

C Sharp has seen an increase in popularity over the last year. It is an object-oriented and multi-paradigm language that encompasses many disciplines. C# was developed by Microsoft and is designated for the Common Language Infrastructure.
Though it is not so widespread as Java or Python, C# has its fans who appreciate the lack of headers, macros and templates, presence of LINQ and anonymous types.

6. R

This is an open source language for statistical computing and it is very popular among data miners and statisticians. This language is a GNU package.
The R pros include its package ecosystem and its vastness and all the charting benefits.

7. JavaScript

JS is an object-based and dynamic language and is one of the core technologies of WWW content production. Even though some people tend to think Java and JS are the same (or at least, very similar) languages, JavaScript was influenced mostly by Self and Scheme.
JavaScript is seeing a rise in popularity and is included in hottest web development trends for the year 2017.

8. PHP

It’s a server-side and general-purpose language designed for web development. PHP is considered rather easy to learn and is often chosen by junior developers.
As well developers love that it’s portable, has a lot of high-quality solutions for an array of web problems and has a lot of frameworks.

9. Go

Go was created at Google and is an open-source language. It’s compiled and has such features as garbage collection, memory safety and limited structural typing.
It is really a good choice if you work with network applications and web servers. Go also consistently behaves across platforms, which is also a good feature.

10. Swift

Swift is a multi-paradigm language developed by Apple and is one of the top choices among iOS developers. It supports such concepts as late binding, extensible programming and dynamic dispatch.
Even though Swift is a relatively new language, it also saw rise in popularity in 2017 and overall looks quite promising.

At DashBouquet we personally prefer JavaScript due to the projects that we work on. However, we are always open to learning something new and we don’t limit our skills to one certain language or framework. Just tell us what you want and we will think of the best way to carry it out.

Top 5 IT Job Trends: Skills & Certifications

Today, end users have different expectations of their IT departments than they previously did. Large developments in networking capacity, media streaming, data processing, and the Internet, in general, have accounted for very different preferences.
These trends will most likely continue and IT administrators should prepare by having a well-rounded IT team. This is becoming the norm regardless of company size or type of organization. Highly skilled workers are a hot commodity, especially in this field. Here are the top 5 skills with certifications and jobs that match what every IT department is looking for in their team.

1. Network Administration
Any complex data center lives or dies on the efficiency and dependability of its data network. Failure of a physical server, connection, switch, or router can be costly when it disconnects end users, automated factory floors, or online retail operations from vital IT functions. All of this increases the need for strong network management to provide vital information for planning and testing healthy networks and the environments they serve. The amount and type of network traffic can provide important clues as to the kinds of hardware and software necessary to run an operation efficiently. The ability to knowledgeably choose the correct hardware, implement connections, and work with the software are highly specific skills.

Network administration covers a broad spectrum, but a solid understanding of TCP/IP, DNS, and related technologies (i.e., load balancing and NTP) are key. It seems that because of the volume and speed with which companies are adopting new technologies, such as virtualization and the cloud, hands-on practical networking experience is preferred by hiring managers, but certifications can’t hurt!

Certifications related to this skill:
Cisco Certified Network Associate Training (CCNA)
Cisco Certified Design Associate Training (CCDA)

Most common job titles:
Systems Administrator
Network Engineer
Network Administrator

2. Cybersecurity
Malicious software, Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS), cyber attacks – these represent the reality of corporate computing today. Moreover, IT professionals must always be aware of internal security issues, from the mundane to the complex as well as understanding the vulnerabilities within their own networks, from operating systems and servers to basic hardware and cabling. While it’s good to specialize, it’s obvious from the breadth of these examples that having knowledge and capabilities across a broad security spectrum can make a difference in any IT department.

A few valuable security skills include expertise in identity and access management, threat/vulnerability assessment, encryption, data loss prevention, incident analysis, governance, compliance and auditing, biometrics, and Web content filtering. Today, it’s increasingly common to outsource the more technical and sensitive areas to security specialists, but it’s also important to pre-empt attacks and possible data loss with in-house capabilities. In terms of security, IT must have the necessary ability to make good decisions about the security portfolio, and this requires a certain level of security competency in some, or all, members of an IT team.

Certifications related to this skill:
CompTIA (A+, Network+, Security+, Linux+)
International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium (CISSP)
EC-Council Training (CEH, ECSA, CHFI)

Most common job titles:
Security Analyst
Security Engineer
Systems Engineer
Security Systems Architect

3. Project Management
It’s interesting to note how this skill that might normally fall under production or administration responsibility is now considered essential for IT. For example, when you consider the number of advanced projects that IT has had to undertake, from virtualization implementation and cloud integration to storage increases, Disaster Recovery (DR), and Unified Communications (UC), the need for this skill is understandable. Every one of the new technologies IT is expected to implement consists of many complicated moving parts with hard deadlines and benchmark targets that have little room for compromise or failure.

When you consider that most if not all companies will expect normal business functioning during implementations, the need for precise, capable scheduling, prioritizing, and goal-setting is understandable. IT project managers, or IT team members who possess this skill must have an understanding of the business on a larger scale as well as thorough knowledge of the IT world. IT is the locus for technology development and the complex technical initiatives companies undertake. Having competency in this skill set will be in demand as companies continue to upgrade their technology environments to keep pace with new innovations as well as with their competitors.

Certifications related to this skill:
Project Management Professional (PMP)
Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)

Most common job titles:
Project Manager
Project Analyst

4. Virtualization
Virtualization means converting multiple physical servers to virtual machines (VM). This experience and the ability to convert non-virtualized environments into virtual ones is closely tied to networking abilities. When you partition one physical server into several VMs, you can deploy, operate, and manage multiple operating system instances at once on that single physical server and, consequently, save on a variety of costs. Some of the related skills that are important to have in this area are server maintenance, application development, storage allocation, and security.

In terms of cloud computing, a primary goal is to reduce the cost of computing resources while increasing system flexibility and scaling. During and after cloud implementation, there are a number of skills that are invaluable. These include scaling expertise which requires a unique ability to design and implement cloud-scale applications. A master integrator skill enables one to build best-of-breed hybrid solutions that consume elements from many different sources, both public and private clouds. 

Another key cloud-based skill is Application Programming Interface (API) knowledge. Designing or implementing an API is part science and part art, and highly specialized. Anyone with this skill would be a solid addition to an IT team. Finally, skill as an automation wizard means having familiarity with the design and implementation of automated systems. 
To fulfill the ideal of fast access to cloud services, automation is crucial and so is the ability to work with these systems.

Certifications related to this skill:
Project Management Professional (PMP)
International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium (CISSP)

Most common job titles:
Information Technology Auditor
Security Analyst
Information Security Analyst

5. Business Analysis
IT plays an extremely valuable role in business. As overall data levels rise, business intelligence and data warehousing skills that enable professionals to gather and effectively analyze increasing amounts of data from various streams are also in demand. Moreover, instead of just focusing on cost savings, companies are investing in technology that provides access to, and analysis of, real-time data, enabling better business decisions.

This move from process-centric to data- and memory-centric computing is already having an impact on current computing trends. IT is expected to adopt a completely new approach to understanding data sets. Team members will be expected to possess new capabilities to perform fast, efficient data analysis. It will also require new hardware and software implementation skills as well as the ability to run and maintain them.

Certifications related to this skill:
EC-Council Training (CEH, ECSA, CHFI)
CompTIA (CSA+)
Project Management Professional (PMP)

Most common job titles:
Business Analyst
Information Technology Manager
Business Systems Analyst

Today, business analysis, data mining, and modeling capabilities are worthwhile skills to possess in any IT department. For example, conceptual modeling of the business view of the solution is a critical tool to help bring business, technology, and delivery groups together in defining solution scope. 
In addition to an ability to communicate details and concepts, critical thinking and sometimes system thinking are also key. These mean taking something large, ambiguous, and abstract and breaking it down into smaller pieces, patterns, and views within a business context. 
Finally, focusing on risks to the business value of the solution and communicating that risk to shareholders is another vital skill that IT team members need to have in regards to performing an effective business analysis.

Cyber Security and Your Mobile Phone

With increasing numbers of us using our mobile devices in nearly every aspect of our busy lives, one of the most important things to do is stay safe and secure when online.

Mobile Malware like Viking Hoard that created a botnet and affected Android devices, or Pegasus that affected both iOS and Android devices masquerading and an app to harvest data are very real threats which were primarily used for adware purposes, now they have been seen rooting millions of devices with malware effectively opening the back door on infected devices.
The thought that your mobile could be used for any purpose, and that includes stealing sensitive data is very scary, and very real.

One simple way to help protect yourself via your phone is to regularly check the status of your mobile apps and the updates. Delete them if they are no longer supported in the Apple or Google stores.

Of course, it is also vital to have good security software installed on your mobile devices. User behavior and awareness need to evolve alongside the continued threat of malware and possible spyware.

For instance, if you were going to play at a mobile casino it would be bad practice to simply pick one randomly and then give your banking details over to the site, just like you would not give your details over to an insurance site easily. Luckily there are honest sites out there still, sites like mobile slots UK have to adhere to the rules and regulations set out by the Gambling Commission or they will get their operator’s license revoked.

Any site should be transparent and have all of its information set out in an easy to see, jargon-free way, especially if you are going to spend any money on it, and this goes for all sites, whether they are online casinos, car insurance sites, clothing stores or any of the millions of sites where you can spend your hard-earned cash.

Interestingly on online casinos, BOKU is becoming one of the most widely used forms of paying for games online. It works by either adding the cost of the games your play to your monthly contract or taking the cost of the games from your ‘pay as you go account.’

Using this form of payment method means you do not have to give any bank details or credit card details to the site at all, in fact, you don’t even have to have a bank account.

With increasing numbers of people becoming reticent about giving banking details, companies like BOKU provide an alternative that appeals to many.
