Website Success Tools Improve Business Operations through Stress-Free Uptime Monitoring

By iwano@_84

In terms of scale and rapid embrace, no other technology has drastically changed how we do business than the internet. It allowed for the nearly unlimited access to information, free from the bounds of geography or the limitations of the working day. It is capable of unifying markets at the global level, while interactions and transactions quickly become innumerable. Everything can happen fast, and capturing or missing a game-changing opportunity can happen in a blink of an eye.

The most common customer-facing platform of most businesses is a website. It’s the digital equivalent of the brick-and-mortar store of classic commerce. Companies present their products and services, attract visitors, and convert them into paying customers. It’s the most popular “place” of business transactions.

On average, how many visitors should business owners expect their websites to get? The answer depends on the type of business or industry that a website functions for.

U.K. Plans for Aerial Drone Zone to Contain UAV Traffic

By iwano@_84

The technology needed to drive delivery drones is already in existence, but laws have yet to catch up. To help take drone technology to the next step of mainstream adoption, the U.K. is currently in the process of establishing what could be the world’s first commercial drone corridor. This airspace will be available to any fully automated drones flying beyond visual line-of-sight (BVLOS), so long as it doesn’t require specialist hardware and conforms to basic technical regulations.

The unrestricted airspace — called the “Arrow Drone Zone” — will be located in the town of Reading, to the west of London, in the Thames Valley. The Drone Zone will be approximately 8 kilometers (5 miles) long and 500 meters (1,640 feet) wide. While it is referred to as a, well, zone for drones, it is technically unrestricted open airspace, meaning that drones and general aviation vehicles (read: airplanes and helicopters) will

Xbox Could Buy Even More Game Studios In The Future, Microsoft CEO Says

By iwano@_84

With its $7.5 billion purchase of ZeniMax, Microsoft now has a whopping 23 first-party game development studios, but the company might not stop there.

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella told GameSpot sister site CNET that Microsoft will consider snapping up more game developers in the future if it makes sense.

“We’ll always look for places where there is that commonality of purpose, mission, and culture,” Nadella said. “We will always look to grow inorganically where it makes sense.”

Nadella is not committing to anything here, and it’s not unusual for giant companies to be constantly on the lookout for acquisition opportunities. With the acquisition of ZeniMax ($7.5 billion) and Mojang ($2.5 billion), as well as Double Fine, Ninja Theory, Compulsion, inXile, and Obsidian, Microsoft has spent more than $10 billion on game studios in the past six years.

In terms of a future buyout, Xbox boss Phil Spencer said in 2019

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Aural Analytics, Inc., an industry leading speech neuroscience and speech analytics technology company, announced today it has launched A2ETM, a mobile application SDK and Web API designed to make speech collection and cloud-based analytics ubiquitous across clinical research, in any health application, and for in-clinic and remote settings.

The idea here, as Microsoft describes it, is to set up a system that can essentially function as a weather monitoring system, but for disease outbreaks. The company first demonstrated the project in 2015, but it has come quite a long way since.

Premonition sounds like a pretty wild project, but Microsoft says it’s based on five years of R&D in this area. The company says it is partnering with the National Science Foundation’s Convergence Accelerator Program and academic partners like Johns Hopkins University, Vanderbilt University, the University of Pittsburgh and the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation to test the tools it’s developing here.

Your computer may be sending automated queries

By iwano@_84

Google Search, while useful, can be exploited by automated queries i.e., a program which does searches in large volumes. It is typically done by services that track website ranking based on keywords.  However, there is a limit, and if they see this is as a common instance occurring from your computer, they can mark it and put up a captcha based check to find if you are human. The error messages say—

We’re sorry, but your computer or network may be sending automated queries. To protect our users, we can’t process your request right now.

Your computer may be sending automated queries
