Rapoo T120p Wireless Touch Mouse With 5ghz Wi-fi Launched

In all honesty, it’s not really a wheel at all. More like a mini touchpad that performs the tasks of a scroll wheel, and then some. Then some being the ability to scroll to the right and left in a web page or document, among other things. On that note, it only takes a swipe of the finger to quickly scroll down through the many pages of an e-book or work doc (excel files, web code pages, etc.). As for the design, it is the picture perfect merger of seamless integration of left and right keys, a clear touch surface and smooth lines. http://news.softpedia.com/news/Rapoo-T120P-Wireless-Touch-Mouse-With-5GHz-Wi-Fi-Launched-429621.shtml

Hutarga┬┐┬ó Technology Delivers High Affinity Fully Human Antibody Therapeutics

(ITS) a pioneer in novel protein engineering technologies, today announced the successful application of the company’s proprietary affinity maturation technology for the purposes of generating antibodies with pM affinities. These first in class antibodies are unique in that all mutations are specifically targeted to CDRs, unlike error prone PCR, somatic hypermutation or other traditional mutagenesis approaches, leaving the antibody frameworks in germline configuration. Because the diversity is generated de novo, in vitro, by the HuTARG cell line itself, there are no manipulations of large recombinant libraries nor challenges due to the lower transformation rates of mammalian cells. The HuTARG technology coupled with Fluorescence Activated Cell Sorting (FACS) allows for the straight forward isolation of antibodies with ten up to several hundred fold increases in affinity in a single FACS run and over a thousand fold increase in affinity in two rounds of CDR optimization. In addition, the HuTARG Technology avoids the loss of time and labour involved in reformatting; as a mammalian platform it allows for the simultaneous selection of high expressing antibodies and does not advance antibodies with mutations that would only later be discovered to have adversely affected manufacturability. “Our generation of subnanomolar affinity antibodies is the last critical set of data validating the HuTARG technology. The technology not only generates large repertoires of fully human antibodies but can also be used to precisely target mutations to generate antibodies with improved characteristics. We anticipate that 2014 will be a transforming year for the company; we are in late stage discussions with several pharmaceutical companies interested in internalizing our HuTARG technology , we have a paradigm shifting solution for generating high quality protein based therapeutics, and a novel first-in-class drug candidate in early development.” – Michael Gallo, President, Innovative Targeting Solutions Inc. About Innovative Targeting Solutions Inc. Founded in 2008, Innovative Targeting Solutions Inc. is a privatelyheld company that has developed the HuTARG technology, a next generation protein engineering platform for the generation and maturation of fully human antibody therapeutics. http://www.thestreet.com/story/12401244/1/hutarg-technology-delivers-high-affinity-fully-human-antibody-therapeutics.html

How To Choose The Best Web Hosting Provider

How the provider handles security is always of concern , especially for companies who are looking to handle credit card transactions over their website. Another consideration should be the uptime guarantee. Customers often assume that their website will always be up and running; however, most providers offer a 99.9 percent uptime guarantee. In most cases, theres no reason why clients should expect anything less than that, but its important to find out what youre entitled to if your server uptime falls below the guaranteed level. http://www.thebestwebhostingplans.com

Microsoft Under Nadella: Reimagining Mobile And Cloud, Finally

Each of these apps is operating system-independent. Mr. Nadella has good visibility into enterprise computing and how technology is deployed and utilized within business. He used to be the executive responsible for Microsofts Business Solutions Group and the Servers and Tools Business. So he knows the dramatic landscape shifts in corporate computing including the move to public and private clouds, the uptake in personal devices being used for business, mobile computing, and SaaS applications, to name a few. http://www.forbes.com/sites/rajsabhlok/2014/02/07/microsoft-under-nadella-reimagining-mobile-and-cloud-finally/

App Misconfiguration, Mobile Apps With Poor Encryption Pose Risks, Hp

Looking beyond just mobile apps, HP found that 80 percent of applications, in general, are misconfigured, which leads to insecure deployments. “Even if developers build their code perfectly, and even if the initial configuration that comes out of development is secure, then there is still the opportunity for an operations person to alter the configuration and introduce insecurity that wasn’t present during the development and testing period,” West said. West sees the application misconfiguration issue as a significant concern. More communication between developers and operations people is needed to mitigate the risk, he said. The operations people need to be more aware of the way applications are built and need to be properly configured, and developers need to make sure that operations people don’t get the opportunity to introduce risks that aren’t necessary, he advised. http://www.eweek.com/security/app-misconfiguration-mobile-apps-with-poor-encryption-pose-risks-hp.html

Zynga Moves Away From Facebook, Toward Mobile

“The scale that served us so well in building and delivering the leading social gaming service on the web is now making it hard to successfully lead across mobile and multi-platform, which is where social games are going to be played,” then-CEO Pincus said in a June 2013 statement. At the time, the company reported losses in the range of $28.5 million to $39 million. Time to be more than stable Since those layoffs and losses, Zynga brought in Mattrick and largely stabilized its business. In the fourth quarter of 2013, the company reported $147 million in revenue and adjusted EBITDA of $3 million. Zynga also announced plans for a 15% global workforce reduction and an expanded cost savings plan expected to generate approximately $33 million to $35 million in pre-tax savings for 2014. Cost saving and small profits might be better than a large loss, but they highlight that stability is doing nothing to move the company away from its reliance on Facebook. The acquisition of NaturalMotion is a half-billion-dollar step toward declaring Zynga’s independence. http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2014/02/01/zynga-moves-away-from-facebook-toward-mobile.aspx
