2015 technology industry graveyard

2015 technology industry graveyard

Cisco, Microsoft, Google and others bury outdated technologies to move ahead with new ones.

Ba-bye
The Technology Industry Graveyard is pretty darn full in 2015, and we’re not even including the near-dead such as RadioShack and Microsoft’s IE browser. Pay your respects here…

GrooveShark
The self-described “World’s Music Library” is no more after shutting down in April in the wake of serious legal pressure by music companies whose songs GrooveShark allowed to be shared but had never licensed. Apple and Google had each kicked GrooveShark out of their app stores years ago due to complaints from music labels. Much more sadly than the 9-year-old company’s demise, however, was the death of co-founder Josh Greenberg in July at the age of just 28.

Typo iPhone keyboard
Not even the glamor of being co-founded by American Idol host Ryan Seacrest could help Typo Innovations save its iPhone keyboard, which BlackBerry said infringed on its patents. So instead, Typo bailed on the iPhone model and settled for selling ones for devices with screens 7.9-inches or larger (like iPads).

Amazon Fire Phone
With a product name like Fire, you’re just asking for colorful headlines if it bombs. And indeed, Amazon has stopped making its Fire Phone about a year after introducing it and media outlets were quick to highlight the company “extinguishing” it or remarking on the phone being “burnt out.” Amazon has had some success on the hardware front, namely with its Kindle line, but the Fire just didn’t distinguish itself and was going for free with a carrier contract by the end.

Interop New York
Interop Las Vegas carries on as one of the network industry’s top trade shows next May, but little sibling Interop New York is no more this year. The Fall show, traditionally held at the Javits Center since 2005, was always smaller and was discontinued for 2015 despite lively marketing material last year touting “More Than 30 Interop New York Exhibitors and Sponsors to Make Announcements in Anticipation of the Event.”

GTalk
Google ditched so many things in 2015 that we devoted an entire slideshow to Google’s Graveyard. So to choose just one representative item here, we remember Google Talk, which had a good run, starting up in 2005. But it’s never good when Google pulls out the term “deprecated” as it did in February in reference to this chat service’s Windows App. Google said it was pulling the plug on GTalk in part to focus on Google Hangouts in a world where people have plenty of other ways to chat online. However, Google Talk does live on via third-party apps.

Cisco Invicta storage products
Cisco has a good touch when it comes to acquisitions, but its $415 mlllion WHIPTAIL buyout from 2013 didn’t work out. The company in July revealed it had pulled the plug on its Invicta flash storage appliances acquired via that deal. It’s not unthinkable though that Cisco could go after another storage company, especially in light of the Dell-EMC union.

RapidShare
The once-popular file hosting system, begun in 2002, couldn’t withstand the onslaught of competition from all sides, including Google and Dropbox. Back in 2009, the Switzerland-based operation ran one of the Internet’s 20 most visited websites, according to Wikipedia. It shut down on March 31, and users’ leftover files went away with it.

Windows RT devices
This locked-down Microsoft OS for tablets and convertible laptops fared about as well as Windows 8, after being introduced as a prototype in 2011 at the big CES event in Las Vegas. Microsoft’s software for the 32-bit ARM architecture was intended to enable devices to exploit that architecture’s power efficiency, but overall, the offering proved to be a funky fit with existing Windows software. Production of RT devices stopped earlier in 2015 as Microsoft focuses on Win10 and more professional-focused Surface devices.

OpenStack vendor Nebula
As Network World’s Brandon Butler wrote in April, Nebula became one of the first casualties of the open source OpenStack cloud computing movement when it shuttered its doors. The company, whose founder was CIO for IT at NASA before starting Nebula in 2011, suggested in its farewell letter that it was a bit ahead of its time, unable to convert its $38 million in funding and hardware/software appliances into a sustainable business.

FriendFeed
Facebook bought this social news and information feed aggregator in 2009, two years after the smaller business started, and then killed it off in April. People have moved on to other means of gathering and discovering info online, so FriendFeed died from lack of use. It did inspire the very singular website, Is FriendFeed Dead Yet, however, so its legacy lives on.

Apple Aperture
Apple put the final nails in its Aperture photo editing app in 2015, ending the professional-quality post-production app’s 10-year run at Version 3.6. In its place, Apple introduced its Photos app for users of both its OS X Mac and iOS devices.

Secret
One of the co-founders of anonymous sharing app shared this in April: The company was shutting down and returning whatever part of its $35 million in funding was left. The company’s reality was just not going to meet up with his vision for it, said co-founder David Byttow. The company faced criticism that it, like other anonymous apps such as Yik Yak, allowed for cyberbullying.

Amazon Wallet
Amazon started the year by announcing its Wallet app, the company’s 6-month-old attempt to get into mobile payments, was a bust. The app, which had been in beta, allowed users to store their gift/loyalty/rewards cards, but not debit or credit cards as they can with Apple and Google mobile payment services.

Circa News app
Expired apps could easily fill an entire tech graveyard, so we won’t document all of their deaths here. But among them not making it through 2015 was Circa, which reportedly garnered some $4 million in venture funding since starting in 2012 but didn’t get enough takers for its app-y brand of journalism.

Google Graveyard: What Google has killed off in 2015

Six feet deep
Google is truly a company that has more technology and products than it can handle sometimes, and in 2015 the company with the recent name change shed a host of tools and products to enable it to focus on more pressing needs. Here’s a look back at what Google this year has offed or announced plans to off (To go back even further, check out 2014’s Google Graveyard.)

Google Code
Google in March said it would be axing its Google Code platform in January 2016, acknowledging increased adoption of alternatives like GitHub and Bitbucket. “As developers migrated away from Google Code, a growing share of the remaining projects were spam or abuse. Lately, the administrative load has consisted almost exclusively of abuse management,” wrote Google open-source director Chris DiBona. Google Code launched in 2006.

Chrome extensions
At the risk of making itself look controlling, Google has been taking steps for years to protect Google Chrome users of extensions that inject ads and malware. In May it really put the kibosh on such software coming from any Windows channel, specifying that all extensions now need to original in the Chrome Web Store. Extensions for Chrome for OS X got the same treatment in July. “Extending this protection is one more step to ensure that users of Chrome can enjoy all the web has to offer without the need to worry as they browse,” a Google product manager wrote in announcing the changes.

Pwnium hacking contest
Google’s big one-day hacking contest at the CanSecWest event, under which it doled out hundreds of thousands of dollars since 2012, has been shuttered in favor of year-long opportunities for hackers to snag bounties for uncovering flaws in its Chrome technology. Among other things, Google was concerned that hackers were hoarding bugs until the contest came around.

Bookmarks Manager
Technicaly, Google didn’t kill the Bookmarks Manager in June, but it did relent to widespread hatred of the free Chrome extension and revert to including the old bookmark tool with its browser. Those few who did cotton to the new UI are still able to access the Bookmarks Manager if they know where to look. Meanwhile, Google’s Sarah Dee blogged: “Our team will continue to explore other ways to improve the bookmarks experience. ”

PageSpeed
Google alerted users of its PageSpeed Service for making websites zippier that it would be killing off the tools as of Aug. 3. Google had pitched its 4.5-year-old hosted PageSpeed optimizing proxy as a way to improve website performance without having to know any code.

Google TV
Google kicked off 2015 by announcing it would ditch the Google TV brand that few probably knew existed and focus its living-room entertainment efforts instead on Android TV and Google Cast. The company said Google TV libraries would no longer be available, but Google TV devices would continue to work.

Google logo
Google nixed its colorful longtime serif typeface logo, around since 1999, in favor of a new sans serif colorful logo with a typeface dubbed Product Sans. With the emergence of the Alphabet parent company came a new look for its Google business.

GTalk
Google Talk had a good run, starting up in 2005, but it’s never good when Google pulls out the term “deprecated” as it did in February in reference to this chat service’s Windows App. Google said it was pulling the plug on GTalk in part to focus on Google Hangouts in a world where people have plenty of other ways to chat online. However, Google Talk does live on via third-party apps.

Maps Coordinate for mobile workforces
Google in January emailed users of its mobile enterprise workforce management offering, which debuted in 2012, that the service would be shutting down come January 2016. Google has been folding various mapping-related products into one another in recent years, and is putting focus on its mapping APIs in its Maps for Work project going forward.

Google Moderator
This tool, launched in 2008, was used to “create a meaningful conversation from many different people’s questions, ideas, and suggestions.” The White House, among others, used it to organize feedback for online and offline events during the 2012 elections. But Google gave up on the tools in July due to its overall lack of use.

Helpouts
There’s no more helping Google Helpouts, which was discontinued in April. This online collaboration service was short-lived, launching in November 2013. While alive, it allowed users to share their expertise – for free or a fee — through live video and provide real-time help from their computers or mobile devices. It exploited Google Hangouts technology, but was largely redundant with so many help videos found on Google’s very own YouTube.

Eclipse developer tools
Google informed developers over the summer that it was time for them to switch over to Android Studio, now firmed up at Version 1.0, as the company would be “ending development and official support for the Android Developer Tools (ADT) in Eclipse at the end of the year. This specifically includes the Eclipse ADT plugin and Android Ant build system.”

Flu Trends
Google in August said it was discontinuing its Flu and Dengue Trends, which were estimates of flu and Dengue fever based on search patterns. Flu Trends launched in 2008 as an early example of “nowcasting” and Google is now leaving the data publishing on diseases to health organizations that it will work with. Historical data remains available from Google.

Google+ ?
Google’s social networking technology has never had much life in the first place and isn’t “really most sincerely dead” like the Wicked Witch, but Google keeps messing around with it, such as extracting the Google Photos app from it, as announced at Google I/O this year, while adding a feature called Collections. Google also has stopped requiring people to have Google+ accounts to tap into other services, such as YouTube channel creation.

The 33 worst lines ever said by tech recruiters

Tech recruiters say the darndest things. How many of these cringeworthy pronouncements have you heard?

Everyone loves to talk about terrible pickup lines from the world of romance, but there’s a far worse kind of misguided enticement going on right here in the realm of technology. I’m talking about the delicate dance of tech recruitment — if you work in any area of IT, you probably know precisely what I mean.

The men and women tasked with recruiting tech talent go to great lengths to attract the attention of their targets — (often unsuspecting) tech pros viewed as valuable “gets.” While some recruiters prove to be invaluable in improving your career, finding exactly the right words to pique your interest in a new gig, far more seem to stammer, stumble, and elicit exasperated sighs.

You don’t have to take my word for it. Several brave tech workers from around the globe have taken the time to share their favorite (if you can call them that) tech recruiter horror tales, and we have highlights for you here.

From game- and/or world-changing concepts to oh-so-disruptive innovation, some tech recruiters resort to impressive-sounding catchphrases that don’t actually mean anything. It’s hard not to wonder how many of these cliché-inclined recruiters are relying on buzzword-generating algorithms to come up with their pitches. (Yes, such things do exist!)

I mean, really: For the love of vertical integration, can’t someone think out of the box?

1. “We need someone who is bright and passionate. Our product is one of a kind and slated to be a total game changer.”

2. “We are serious about changing the world.”

3. “We need people who think so far out of the box that the box isn’t even in the picture anymore.”

4. “This will give you great exposure to big data in the cloud, and you will be working with some extremely intelligent technologists!”

5. “As a company that specializes in innovation, [we] want the best and brightest creative visionaries.”

6. “I am working with the founders of a stealth mode startup disrupting the infrastructure/data center space.”

7. “We are working on absolutely amazing things and will scale tremendously.”

8. “We have a tight-knit dynamic team that is responsible for delivering consumer experiences.”

9. “We’re looking for a code ninja…”

10. “We’re looking for a Java wizard…”

11. “We’re looking for someone truly brilliant, and so we’re willing to offer a lot:

12. “Want to work with a team of diverse rock stars?”

13. “Would it help if I told you that I was helping out with ninja engineer hiring for Facebook?”

14. “Chuck Norris coding skills required.”

15. “EliteCoder you = new EliteCoder(“Can you code with the best?”);”

16. “The company is the first of its kind, as it is 100 percent focused on the integration of mobile/wearables and enterprise.”

17. “Think of it as Box.com meets LinkedIn meets Facebook with real privacy.”

18. “Our product combines many elements of Facebook, eBay, Blogger, PayPal, and Etsy.”

19. “This is a ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY.”

20. “We’re building a dynamic team that lives on the bleeding edge of technology with a unique opportunity to work on the Silverlight platform. Prior experience with Adobe Flash highly desired.”

21. “The best way to negotiate is not to negotiate at all … so tell me exactly what you’re making.”

22. “What we can offer:

23. “The environment is hip and modern, and very inclusive and friendly to women and other weirder types.”

24. “You have JavaScript on your resume. What do you mean you don’t know Java?”

25. “[This job requires] experience of developing databases in HTML.”

26. “[Looking for a] senior iOS architect with 10-plus years experience.” (The first version of iOS was released in 2007.)

27. “What’s the difference between a UI engineer and a Unix engineer?” (Posed to an IT employee by a recruiter hired to find engineers and programmers.)

28. “We are very impressed with all your Android work at [Company X] and we believe you would be a perfect fit for this great opportunity.” (Sent to someone after his first day as a Company X employee.)

29. “What a beautiful morning, what a beautiful day! … I am looking for people who don’t follow roads, the Docs of the world. The people who take life and grab it, regardless of any paths or roads that have been set. We spend a lifetime of thinking ‘what if’? But what if we spent a lifetime of ‘I did!'”

30. “You’ll be empowered to identify problems and dive head first into the equation. Risk is encouraged. Victory makes us who we are.”

31. “I don’t mean to be a nuisance, but there’s really no way of knowing if someone might be interested or not without a response.”

32. “I came across your profile and was very impressed by your pedigree.”

33. “Due to the high volume of applicants, only shortlisted candidates will be shortlisted.”

Well, that certainly clears things up. No word yet, however, on whether said shortlist could include any “women or other weirder types.”

70-243 Administering and Deploying System Center 2012 Configuration Manager


QUESTION 1
You recently migrated from System Center Configuration Manager 2007 to System Center 2012
Configuration Manager. Your network contains a client computer that runs the 64-bit version of
Windows 7 and the 32-brt version of Widows 7. Some client computers have the Microsoft Application
Virtualization (App-V) client installed. You have an Application named App1. You have a 64-bit version
of App1, a 32-bit version of App1, and a virtual version of App1. You need to deploy the Application to
all of the client computers. The solution must minimize the amount of administrative effort. What should
you do?

A. Create a new Application that has three different deployment types and create a target collection
for each of the deployment types.
B. Create a new Application that has three different deployment types and configure global
conditions for each of the deployment types.
C. Create a new package for each version of App1.
D. Create a new Application for each version of App1.

Answer: B

Explanation:
Applications contain multiple deployment types that contain the files and commands necessary to
install the software. For example, deployment types for a local installation , a virtual application
package or a version of the application for mobile devices. MSI 64, 32 deployment types
Deploy multiple type to multiple collection ( x64, x32, VirtualUserCollection) You don’t choose to deploy
a specific deployment type. Instead, you deploy the application itself. It’s pretty simple in this case, with
only one deployment type, as it’s fairly obvious which one will be installed. But if you had multiple
deployment types, you would need to specify rules to determine which one is used.


QUESTION 2
You have an Application named App1. You need to ensure that users in the finance department can
install App1 by using the Application Catalog. What should you do?

A. Create a required user deployment and target the deployment to all of the finance department users.

You deploy Windows 7 by using Operating System Deployment (OSD). The development task
sequence contains steps to install software updates and Applications. The amount of time required to
deploy the Windows 7 image has increased significantly during the last six months. You need to
recommend a solution to reduce the amount of time it takes to deploy the image. What should you
recommend?

A. Synchronize software updates before deploying the image.
B. Use offline servicing for the image.
C. Create a new automatic deployment rule.
D. Add an additional Install Software Updates step to the deployment task sequence.

Answer: B

Explanation:
By updating an image in the Software Library instead of performing a new build and capture of the
operating system image you will gain a few distinct advantages. You will be able to reduce the risk of
vulnerabilities during operating system deployments and reduce the overall operating system
deployment to the end user. You will also reduce the administrative effort to maintain your operating
system images. The feature is applicable for Component Based Servicing (CBS) updates and for the
following operating systems:
Microsoft Windows Vista SP2 and later
Microsoft Windows Server 2008 SP2 and later
Microsoft Windows 7 RTM
Microsoft Windows 2008 R2
* At the launch of ConfigMgr 2012 Beta 2 Microsoft Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1
are not supported. They will be supported with Configuration Manager 2012 RTM.

Good-bye, Google as we know it. Hello, Alphabet

The company originally known for its search engine officially becomes Alphabet at the market close on Friday

This is the last day that Google is operating without a parent company.

After the close of markets Friday, the company officially will become Alphabet and will trade as such on Monday. Google will become a business unit running under the Alphabet umbrella and will focus on core Internet-related businesses, including search, YouTube and Android.

The company announced the official change on its investor relations page.

“Long-term, this could be a big deal, but it must be more than a name change,” said Patrick Moorhead, an analyst with Moor Insights & Strategy. “Non-Google companies under Alphabet need to show a few things – like they need to enable innovation and autonomy.”

Google announced in August that it was creating a parent company and that Google would become one of its wholly owned subsidiaries.

Alphabet is set to replace Google as the publicly traded entity and shares of Google will be the same number of shares of Alphabet. The company will still trade under the ticker symbol GOOG.

Google won’t be the only subsidiary under the Alphabet umbrella.

Google X, the company’s secretive research arm that came up with the autonomous car, will become its own business, as will Capital and Ventures, which will concentrate on funding startups.

Before the reorganization, everything the company was working on – search, Android, Chrome, Google Glass, robotics, driverless cars, drones and even smart contact lenses fell under the Google corporate umbrella. With this move, Google will shed all of its research projects, which aren’t money makers, and will concentrate on its Internet-based businesses, like search, which is a huge money maker.

Similarly, the company, which has become known for its “moon shots” or outrageous-sounding research, should be able to put even more muscle behind new projects.

Google’s research projects, like smart contact lenses that can read blood sugar levels for diabetics, will have its own executives overseeing the work.

With less attention split between money makers and big dreams, Alphabet is expected to be able to do a better job at both.

“This is a big deal because if they can accomplish what they’re looking to… this puts in place a future operating model for a large company to truly innovate,” said Moorhead. “I think this puts a meaningful separation between businesses generating cash, and research and science projects. For the company, it could mean they can keep driving profits today and invest in the far future.”
