If you have deployed a few systems of scale, you know that some design problems are worse than others.It’s one thing to write tight code, and another thing to avoid introducing performance-crushing design flaws into the system.Unlike many bad decisions, these can be reversed.If you select all of a customer’s orders in one query then loop through selecting each order’s line items in a query per order, that’s n trips to the database plus one.Row locks are more common.Years ago XML parsers used to validate the MIME type using a Java library called the Bean Activation Framework that used the old Java “Hashtable” collection that synchronized every method.

You have to wonder what the marketing folk at KFC are thinking sometimes.Back in 2014 they introduced an oversized drumstick iPhone case in Japan, then in 2015 there were the bucket-printer hybrid and the tray-keyboard mashup.Last year, they came up with the Watt a Box – a box of chicken with a built-in power bank.And, just a couple of weeks ago, they even designed a smartphone in partnership with Huawei.Today, The Verge has brought another KFC hybrid to our attention – Gamer’s Box 2.0.The India-exclusive box actually has a built-in Bluetooth gamepad and a phone holder on top, so you can play while you eat.

But did you know that it’s not particularly difficult to create your own moving pictures?Giphy’s GIF Maker tool first graced our desktops back in 2015.Now, it’s available for mobile devices, so you can create the perfect reaction video whenever you’re out and about.This makes sense, when you consider that people are increasingly making and sharing content from their handsets.And as you’d expect, it lets you add your own flair, in the form of captions, stickers, drawings, or glitter.But after dipping a toe (or is it a thumb?)

The Digiday Content Marketing Summit is coming up next month in Vail, Colorado, and we’re opening up a limited number of complimentary passes for content marketers from brands.Interest in location-based ads sparked following the arrival of Snap Maps earlier this month, but many marketers believe getting accurate location data is still too complicated for them to spend more money on audience targeting in this way.Only a “handful of companies” offer location data that has been correctly verified and is accurate, claimed one anonymous source who works with advertisers on location-based campaigns.He added, “Some companies out there are collecting a shitload of data from wherever they can get it, packaging it up to sell it in whatever way they can.”These concerns are not new.Snapchat has worked on this part of its ad model for some time, but over the last 12 months, a proposition has begun to crystallize, as seen by its acquisition of location-based data player Placed in June.

Existing surfboard designs tend to play it safe.Varial infused glass is an innovative way to improve on traditional surfboards.If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.Varial Surf Technology thinks a bit differently, however.The process for Infused Glass involves vacuum bagging a surfboard in one shot.This process may not be entirely new, but Varial is able to do a 100-percent vacuum bag infusion with either polyester or epoxy resin.

What does the company do you work at?“in Asia lead effectively with a Swedish leadership that is very much on own initiative, trust and a democratic leadership.What business leaders inspire you?What is the main lesson you wish you had known before you started working on Digilär?“To have digitised a completely non-digital organization.I should have realized that it takes different amounts of time for different people to accept the changes, and don't be impatient.

This morning we’re having a peek at the latest update to Pokemon GO, one made almost exclusively for the oncoming event Pokemon GO Fest.This update includes a number of new image files, several of which are Legendary Pokemon.These new Legendary Pokemon files indicate that – believe it or not – we’ll be getting SHINY Legendary Pokemon in addition to the first three standard Legendary Bird Pokemon.The first three Legendary Pokemon that’ll be out available in Legendary Pokemon RAID Boss Battles are the first three Legendary Bird Pokemon.That is one for each of the three main Pokemon GO teams, one ice, one fire, and one lightning.This is the first set we’d expect from the creators of Pokemon GO – though there is a TINY bit of a surprise in store.

But shortly after taking his job as CMO at the venerable shoe company three years ago, Schneider noticed that many of those customers had more than just feedback to offer—they had remarkable stories about their boots.There was Dylan Murphy, a lineman whose Red Wing boot saved his foot from amputation after a 12,600-pound wire reel broke off a crane and fell on him.Csoka’s Red Wing 2292s kept him from being electrocuted during an accident on the pile, allowing him to rescue a co-worker felled from smoke inhalation.“The amount of fervor and love and regard consumers had for this brand was something I’d never experienced in 25 years of working in marketing,” he said.And then he had a thought: “How can I use these consumers who are already ambassadors and let themHis answer: a new initiative called the Wall of Honor, which Red Wing quietly kicked off a few weeks ago.

Samsung may be rebooting a few hundred thousand Galaxy Note 7 handsets as Note 7 FE refurbs, but that still leaves millions of the recalled phablets needing to be dealt with.Rather than junk them, however – and facing pressure from environmental agencies – the South Korean firm has detailed exactly how it plans to make the most of the components that went into the ill-fated phone.However, it’s unlikely you’ll end up seeing some zombie parts showing up in future Samsung devices.First off, the company had to contact all owners and persuade them to turn their phablets off and bring them back in for the recall.Samsung is calling that the Galaxy Note 7 FE, or “Fan Edition”, and it’s basically a well-checked-over iteration of the phablet the company is confident won’t experience future battery issues.The remainder will fall into Samsung’s newly-detailed recycling process.

Amazon must have wondered, “What’s the use of all this sharing on social media if there’s no shopping?”Or maybe the thinking went like this: people like to socialize online, how can we use that to get their cash?Amazon’s new move into social media is as much about selling products as it is about sharing.The Seattle-based e-commerce giant on July 19 launched “Spark,” a social media feed devoted to sharing, shopping — and slightly stealthy advertising.Starting on Spark requires users to select at least five interests from a list of about 100 that includes photography, cooking, makeup, music and, of course, cats.Amazon will then create a personalized feed.

You might have an image of outer space as being this vast, empty, and silent vacuum, and, to some extent, you’d be correct.Radio waves of all kinds travel the vastness of space, taking ages even when traveling at the speed of light.And some of them naturally reach earth, giving scientists data to devour.Last week, however, a red dwarf by the name of Ross 128 in the constellation of Virgo has been sending us some rather strange signals and scientists are only too excited to find out what exactly they are.Get Fast Shipping & Better Pricing.It might be hard to imagine, but our planet is actually bombarded every day by all sorts of things from space.

If you’ve ever wanted to try Mass Effect: Andromeda without paying full price for the game, now’s your chance.The 10-hour free trial that had been available to Origin Access subscribers is now open to everyone.When the game was released back in March, Andromeda’s reviews ranged from above average to poor.Many critics cited its uninspiring gaming elements as a problem, but it was the numerous technical difficulties that really held it back.Since then, BioWare has released a series of patches to fix the shoddy animations and various glitches, but has it made Andromeda worth buying?Now you can find out without a cash commitment.

It is worth reading through both of them before starting to install or upgrade Fedora.If you click that notice, or just go to the Gnome Software utility and click the Update tab, you will get a window which offers you more information about the upgrade, along with a button to actually start the upgrade.If there are also some pending updates for your Fedora 25 installation, there will be another part of the window informing you of that.I'm going to skip over those for right now, because I am far too anxious to get to the desktop version on my Raspberry Pi.The Fedora ARM Installation Guide gives detailed instructions, including a description of how to run the ARM image using the QEMU emulator... what a concept.All of these images are xz-compressed raw disk images.

LG has invited to an event in Berlin last August, the day before the IFA starts officially.the Invitation has the shape of a telephone and we expect of course to see the LG V30 during the presentation, which is also implied in the image (the phone displays a ”V”).According to rumors, the V30 to offer a large OLED-screen (FullVision/18:9), dual rear cameras, a rear fingerprint reader, and wireless charging.The elongated feature game screen from previous models in the V series is said to have been a priority, so the design is aligned with the G6 and, most recently, Q6.

But you might need a dedicated device, especially if you're planning on using it on your TV.We must warn you that, while it is possible to use Kodi for streaming pirated content, we don't recommend the practice.While there's very little chance you will be caught if you sort everything yourself, especially if you use a VPN, you never know what Theresa May and her dedicated team of cyber-snoops are trying to cook up.Amazon Fire TV Stick, £40Amazon's streaming stick doesn't technically have Kodi, but it's not that difficult to sideload the app and enjoy the media centre.That means you get a cheap, discrete device that's capable of handling Kodi in its entirety, without risking electrocution with an unregulated Chinese knock-off.

The second boss fight in Splatoon 2 is a sword battle.You face off against Octo Samurai, an enormous cephalopod who brandishes a paint roller like a katana and rides around on an itty-bitty unicycle.Like the first boss fight in Nintendo’s ink shooter (due out July 21 for the hybrid home/handheld Switch console — read our preview), Octo Samurai is bursting with character thanks to striking visual design and excellent animations.But the coolest thing about duking it out with Octo Samurai is that the combat switches up.Instead of going into the battle with any of the weapons you’ve unlocked in the campaign so far, you must use the paint roller.This gives the bout something of a fighting-game melee feel.
