Have you heard of speed reading? Me neither. At least not before a startup called Spritz raised 3.5 Millions in seed money to develop an API that supposedly allows a user to read 1,000 words per minute. The concept of speed reading is simple: slice a text into individual short segments, like a word or […]Continue reading...The post How to speed read on Linux appeared first on Xmodulo.Related FAQs:How to install Google Chrome on LinuxHow to check Internet speed from the command line on LinuxHow to test DNS server speed on LinuxHow to speed up X11 forwarding in SSHHow to speed up Nginx web server with PageSpeed

Why can't movie-streaming sites deliver the selection of movies that customers obviously want? This was the question posed by a recent New York Times column, comparing undersupplied services like Netflix with unauthorized platforms like Popcorn Time... The problem is that, unlike earlier movie-rental options, streaming rights fall fundamentally within a permission culture. Netflix is a great illustration of what's gone wrong here. It's gone from having a nearly unrivaled catalog of films available to rent to being the butt of Onion jokes. What happened: It shifted from a system where nobody had a veto power over its operations, to one where it had to get permission and make deals with Hollywood. Sometimes it's difficult to find the concrete costs of living in a permission culture, but the decline of Netflix's selection is an important cautionary tale.

Earlier this week, we wrote about the MPAA's announced plans to sue Megaupload in a civil lawsuit to pile on to the criminal charges the company is already facing. As we noted, there's no legitimate reason for such a lawsuit, given the criminal lawsuit already underway, other than as a way to try to get a favorable court ruling it can use against others. Having now read the full complaint against Megaupload, it's quite clear that this is exactly what the MPAA is doing. The lawsuit is incredibly dangerous for the internet, even if you think that Megaupload itself was a bad actor. Even the LA Times -- Hollywood's hometown paper -- has called out the lawsuit for how it may have negative consequences felt broadly across the internet.

Developers who understand the whole stack are going to build better applications. Since Facebook’s Carlos Bueno wrote the canonical article about the full stack, there has been no shortage of posts trying to define it. For a time, Facebook allegedly only hired “full-stack developers.” That probably wasn’t quite true, even if they thought it was. And some posts really push “full-stack” developer into Unicorn territory: Laurence Gellert writes that it “goes beyond being a senior engineer,” and details everything he thinks a full-stack developer should be familiar with...

Most people with Internet access in their houses have visited a speed-test Web site to make sure they're getting somewhere close to the speed they're overpaying for. Thankfully, my friend Charlie K. (I won't use his last name, because I didn't ask him if I could) posted a link on Google Plus to the speedtest-cli program.

Announced by Marvell as a double design win, the Swisscom TV 2.0 set-top box (STB) runs on the Armada 1500 Plus system-on-chip unveiled by Marvell back in December. The SoC is an upgrade to the Armada 1500, which was the designated SoC for Google TV 2.0 set-tops and smart TVs. It is expected that the Armada 1500 Plus will be one of the principle SoC pairings with the upcoming successor to GoogleTV, rumored to be called Android TV. However, it is also likely Google will work with a variety of SoC platforms as part of a move to loosen up previous Google TV requirements that many vendors found too restricting.
