Quip Launches, Promising To Reinvent Word Processing In The Age Of The iPad

Posted on by

first_imgHow Intelligent Data Addresses the Chasm in Cloud ReadWrite spoke to Taylor briefly Tuesday evening after the post went up. We’ve been tracking Taylor’s new startup since last December, when a few mysterious hints about his effort sprang up on Quip’s website, on Twitter and in trademark filings.He sounded undaunted by the idea of taking on Google, his and Gibbs’s former employer, and Microsoft, the big player in office-productivity software in the desktop and the cloud.Taylor’s argument: The rise of the tablet and the smartphone as users’ primary computing devices is so fundamental a shift that there’s an opportunity to reinvent productivity software.“What’s been disappointing is that the applications you have to use every day for work haven’t benefitted from the mobile transition,” Taylor says. “We’re still stuck in 1998 in that software and the rest of the world has moved on.”Disappointing Docs, Overwhelming OfficeIt’s hard to disagree. While Google Docs has shown it’s possible to do word processing online, the Web giant hasn’t broken free of print metaphors.“One of the interesting things is that Google Docs is still on a virtual 8 1/2 x 11 piece of paper,” observes Taylor.In the ’80s, the big innovation in desktop productivity software was the concept of WYSIWYG: what you see is what you get. What mattered was that what you saw on a screen matched what you eventually printed on a page. But what if you create documents that aren’t ever meant to be printed—and that live on screens of varying sizes, not fixed pages?“Our layout engine isn’t just WYSIWYG—you aren’t just positioning text on a page,” says Taylor. “Your document will re-layout and re-format for the size of the screen, even complex layouts like images and tables.”In that way, Quip’s product is the responsive design movement’s answer to document creation. What others—including ReadWrite—have done for website design, Taylor and Gibbs hope to do for all manner of shared online documents.“Our point of view is that by producing software that works exceptionally well in this environment, even though we’re small, we have the opportunity to succeed here,” Taylor says.Quip’s available now. Try it out and tell us what you think. Here comes Quip, a new startup that’s making the office-productivity software wars more interesting than they’ve been in decades.Launched by Bret Taylor, the former CTO of Facebook and cofounder of social aggregator FriendFeed, and Kevin Gibbs, who worked with Taylor at Google, Quip aims to reinvent document creation and collaboration in the age of the tablet, according to a post on Quip’s website.Quip is currently available as an iPhone and iPad app and on the Web at Quip.com, with an Android version in a rough beta. It’s free for personal use; Quip will charge companies with more than five users $12 per user per month.Taking On The Giants Serverless Backups: Viable Data Protection for … Related Posts owen thomas Cloud Hosting for WordPress: Why Everyone is Mo… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#Bret Taylor#Google Docs#ipad productivity#Kevin Gibbs#Microsoft Office#office software#productivity software#QUip last_img read more

Philadelphia Eagles Riley Cooper Gets into Fight with Teammate

Posted on by

It doesn’t seem things are back to normal for Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper. The player who uttered a racial slur on camera earlier in the summer, recently got into two brawls with his teammate cornerback Cary Williams on Thursday morning in practice.The wide receiver made national headlines early in training camp when a video clip hit the web showing him using the N-word during a conflict with a black sercurity guard at a June concert. At the time it happened, Williams was one of several African-Americans on the team who spoke up about what Riley said on the video.According to ESPN, the fight started when Williams was covering Cooper in a non-contact drill. The two locked up and threw fists until they were separated by cornerback Brandon Boykin.Cooper reportedely walked away from the fight and Williams pursued him after dramatically throwing his helmet to the ground. Quarterback Michael Vick grabbed Williams to calm him down. read more

African Players Walk Out on Russian Soccer Club After

Posted on by

Igor Gamula  photo from www.independent.co.uk.comAfter the coach of a Russian professional soccer club made offensive comments last week regarding his African players, the players have refused to train with the team.On Friday, coach Igor Gamula of the Russian club FC Rostov said his club had “enough dark-skinned players, we’ve got six of the things,” according to Thestar.com.Paul Mitchell, agent for Rostov’s South African defender Siyanda Xulu, told thestar.com that the five African players “are not prepared to train under the current coach until such time as the situation has been dealt with.Gamula’s comments are just the latest in a head-spinning spate of racist comments and actions directed at Black athletes. While racism in sports is hardly new, the latest incidents still seem shocking at a time when Blacks seem to be such a dominant force in the sports world.Of course there was the infamous case of Donald Sterling, former owner of the Los Angeles Clippers who was caught on tape making racist comments just before last year’s NBA playoffs. The team responded by dumping their Clippers warmup jackets and pants on the court to show their disgust with Sterling. The NBA owners voted to remove Sterling from the NBA by forcing him to sell the team.More recently, Atlanta Hawks co-owner Bruce Levenson offered to sell his portion of the team when he found an e-mail he had written two years ago that he considered to be “inappropriate and offensive.”In the international arena of soccer, racism has been a continual problem. In 2007, Serge Branco, a midfielder from Cameroon who played in a Russian league, endured constant racial abuse from fans of the Zenit St. Petersburg soccer club, according to the New York Times. In 2008, Zenit manager Dick Advocaat reportedly said, “I would be happy to sign anyone, but the fans don’t like Black players.” It was in 2011 when a Zenit fan offered a banana to Roberto Carlos, a Brazilian player. Zenit was also the last top-level Russian club to have never signed a Black player until September 2012, when it signed the Brazilian forward Hulk and Belgian Axel Witsel.In hockey, P.K. Subban, the Black defenseman for the Montreal Canadiens, was bombarded with racist tweets after his game winning goal in double overtime against the Boston Bruins in Game 1 of the series. Using Twitter, Bruins fans broadcasted their offensive and racist language. read more

Pochettino refuses to rule out Madrid speculation

Posted on by

first_imgTottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has not ruled out a switch to Real Madrid with his latest outburst in his press conference ahead of the encounter with WolvesPochettino used a relationship analogy to describe the speculation surrounding his future with Spurs according to Caughtoffside.“It is like being with your girlfriend or wife. We are so handsome walking down Regent Street holding hands and she is so proud about you because another woman is looking at you.“Your wife, rather than be worried, is happy to be with you, in love with you. If no-one looks at you, your wife says maybe she is better with another guy.Victor Wanyama, Tottenham Hotspur, Premier LeaguePochettino admits Wanyama remains in his Spurs plans Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Kenyan international, Victor Wanyama, was the protagonist of a summer transfer saga, but in the end, he is set to stay at Tottenham Hotspur.“For me, I feel proud the players care about you, but I repeat the responsibility is wanting to play for the glory of the club.”The Argentine seems to have focused his entire press conference on reiterating that Tottenham’s exciting plans for future are not dependent on him being at the helm.Pochettino at the end effectively deflected the chance to confirm or deny his future.last_img read more

Adobe Opens Wired New Yorker Tablet Platform to Publishers with Analytics

Posted on by

first_imgThe Digital Publishing Suite aims to be a comprehensive solution for turning traditional magazines created in InDesign into digital publications that can be distributed to devices of all sorts. But the one aspect that intrigues me most is this: It includes Omniture analytics for digital magazines. (Adobe acquired Omniture a year ago for $1.8 billion.)If you use the suite to produce tablet versions of your magazine, you can use the analytics service to get a bevy of information about how they’re being read—all aggregated and anonymized to avoid privacy issues. You can see whether readers are opening the issues they’ve bought. You know which stories they’re jumping to, and whether they tap through every page of an article or abandon it after the first one. You can confirm whether they’re watching ambitious multimedia elements such as embedded video. And you can tell whether they’re reading front-to-back, back-to-front, or hopping around randomly.It sounds like a goldmine of useful information that publishers could use to make publications that serve their readers better. And much of it might help with a magazine’s traditional, dead-tree version, too—I suspect that there’d be a correlation between covers that prompt tablet subscribers to open the issues quickly and ones that are newsstand winners.Analytics can’t tell you everything you need to know about your readers’ relationship with your content. Seeing that a lot of people chose to read a particular article, for instance, says nothing about whether they liked what they got once they finished. So traditional research such as surveys and focus groups still have their place, and free-form feedback such as reader comments on online versions of stories can be very useful. But I know that if I were editing a magazine with digital editions produced with Adobe’s suite, I’d be hungry for the new clues about reader behavior that these analytics could provide. Back when I was editor of PC World, creating a magazine that newsstand buyers and subscribers loved was one of the great pleasures of my job. It was also something of a dark art. There were plenty of signs we’d succeeded: issues flying off the stands, renewal rates staying healthy, high scores in the pricey reader surveys we conducted. But in the end, connecting the dots of reader satisfaction was difficult, and agonizingly slow.(The closest I got to instant gratification, incidentally, was when I traveled on an airplane and happened to sit next to someone who was reading PC World. Rather than introducing myself, I’d peek out of one corner of my eye and see which articles my neighbor lingered on, and which ones he or she skimmed right past.)On the Web, things are different.  Analytics services such as Omniture let editors and other media types see what’s getting read, what’s getting ignored, and how consumers navigate through everything a site has to offer. They let you make decisions in real time, rather than waiting for months.At Adobe’s MAX conference in Los Angeles this week, the publishing software company is announcing its Digital Publishing Suite, the fully-commercialized version of the system that Wired, The New Yorker, and other publications have been using to create iPad versions of their magazines. It’s rolling out in pre-release form for publishers who’d like to try it out; the final version is due in the second quarter of 2011.last_img read more

Civil society BNP Jamaat have no strength to defeat AL Joy

Posted on by

first_imgPrime minister Sheikh Hasina’s son and ICT affairs adviser Sajeeb Wazed Joy. Photo: BSSPrime minister Sheikh Hasina’s information and communication technology affairs adviser Sajeeb Wazed Joy on Saturday said people reaped the benefits of development as they voted for ‘Boat’, election symbol of ruling Bangladesh Awami League (AL).“The people witnessed massive development after voting for boat. On the contrary, when the BNP comes to power, they destroy the country,” he told a discussion at a hotel in the capital.Suchinta Foundation organised the discussion titled ‘21 August: Present-Future of Bangladesh’s Politics’ with its chairperson Mohammad A Arafat in the chair.Freedom fighter and cultural personality Nasiruddin Yusuf Bachchu, professor at Dhaka University (DU) Mesbah Kamal, freedom fighter Rokeya Kabir, late president Zillur Rahman’s daughter Tania Rahman, and journalist Mozammel Babu addressed the discussion, among others.Joy said AL has reached to its present stage braving all kinds of conspiracies. Civil society members, BNP and Jamaat have no strength to defeat the united Awami League, he added.“We can feel the pangs of sufferings for losing family members. I vowed to come to politics and oust the BNP government after the 21 August monstrous attack,” the PM advisor said.The then prime minister Begum Khaleda Zia was involved in the 21 August monstrous grenade attack, Joy said, adding it took 14 years to complete the trail of the heinous attack.Mainul Hosein, a former adviser to the past caretaker government, Dr Kamal Hossain and others were masterminds behind the 1/11, he said, adding, “Mainul Hosein helped Tarique Rahman, mastermind of the 21 August grenade attack, to flee from the country”.1/11 is the popular term in the country for indicating the changeover took place in January 2007, when military-backed caretaker government assumed power.Now they are trying to make Tarique the prime minister bringing him back home, he added.The AL does not do politics of killings like the BNP, Joy said, adding a total of 24 AL leaders and activists were killed in the 21 August grenade attack when leaders like Ahsanullah Master and Shah AMS Kibria were also killed during the BNP regime.“If BNP could have remained in the state power for 10 years like AL, no AL leader could have remained alive,” he said.Replying to BNP leaders’ allegation of arresting their leaders and activists, Joy said legal actions will be taken against those who killed people through arson attacks in 2013-14.Criticising the so-called civil society members, Joy said those who are ashamed of raising voice against killers and terrorists, they actually are trying to save the killers and terrorists.Talking about the newly-formed Jatiya Oikya Front, he said the Jatiya Oikya Front is trying to rehabilitate the BNP.Referring to different trials completed under the AL government, Joy said AL has established rule of law. And Tarique Rahman will be brought to book after extradition, he added.AL does not fear those who are not capable of securing a single vote in the election, he said, adding that AL does not care for the threats of so-called civil society members.Addressing the discussion, Tania Rahman said the main target of the 21 August grenade attack was to make the AL, which led the country’s liberation war, leaders less.The speakers said the 21 August attack and the 15 August incident of killing father of the nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman with his family member were tied in a same string.The purposes of the incidents were to kill the country’s liberal democratic politics and make the country a militant state, they added.last_img read more
