AT&T: MMS is Coming to the iPhone on September 25

first_imgThe Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Tags:#Apple#mobile#news#web Related Posts center_img AT&T just announced that MMS for the iPhone 3G and 3GS will become available on September 25th. While the iPhone itself already supports this feature, AT&T held back on making it available to its customers, much to the disappointment of many iPhone owners. MMS, which basically allows users to send images, audio, and short videos to other phones just like a text message, will be enabled through a software update for the iPhone. According to AT&T, the company didn’t enable this feature any earlier because it needed to upgraded its infrastructure to the point where it was ready to handle the traffic it expects to see once this feature becomes available. About TimeMMS, of course, has always been available on a wide variety of phones and when Apple announced that the iPhone 3.0 firmware upgrade would be capable of supporting MMS but that AT&T wasn’t quite ready yet, a lot of users were quite disappointed. Indeed, Apple and AT&T are currently being sued for misleading consumers into believing that the iPhone would be capable of multimedia messaging.Ever since the iPhone launched, AT&T has been criticized for not being able to handle the traffic the iPhone already generates on its mobile data network. Waiting for its network to be ready to handle this traffic was probably the right decision, especially given that the company expects to see “record volumes of MMS traffic” once it enable this feature on the iPhone.iPhone 3.1 Also Coming September 25?A bit earlier this month, our own Sarah Perez wondered if MMS would be enabled in the next version of the iPhone OS. If an OS update is indeed necessary to enable MMS on the iPhone, then we can be pretty sure that September 25 will also be the launch date for the iPhone 3.1 update. Press ReleaseHere is the full press release:An Update on iPhone MMS for our Mobility CustomersWe know many of our iPhone customers are eager for an update on our rollout schedule for Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS). We’ve been working for the past several months to prepare our systems and network to ensure the best possible experience with MMS when it launches – and that launch date is: September 25 for iPhone 3G and 3GS customers. MMS will be enabled through a software update on that day. We know that iPhone users will embrace MMS. The unique capabilities and high usage of the iPhone’s multimedia capabilities required us to work on our network MMS architecture to carry the expected record volumes of MMS traffic and ensure an excellent experience from Day One. We appreciate your patience as we work toward that end. We’re riding the leading edge of smartphone growth that’s resulted in an explosion of traffic over the AT&T network. Wireless use on our network has grown an average of 350 percent year-over-year for the past two years, and is projected to continue at a rapid pace in 2009 and beyond. The volume of smartphone data traffic the AT&T network is handling is unmatched in the wireless industry. We want you to know that we’re working relentlessly to innovate and invest in our network to anticipate this growth in usage and to stay ahead of the anticipated growth in data demand, new devices and applications for years to come. We thank you for your business and look forward to keeping you updated on our initiatives. frederic lardinois Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaceslast_img read more

Spending a Day With Energy Policy Geeks

first_imgI recently attended a small, one-day meeting in Atlanta of individuals and organizations involved in energy efficiency throughout the southeast U.S. Hosted by SEEA, the Southeast Energy Efficiency Alliance, the group responsible for distributing much of the ARRA money for efficiency throughout the region.Along with the typical discussions of successes and challenges (or failures) in the region, there were a few standard utility company party-line comments and, somewhat surprisingly, a few off-the-wall comments that suggested a little bit of revolutionary thinking going on in the industry.Opening act: the sky is fallingThe morning keynote address was given by Dr. Marilyn Brown of Georgia Tech and Oak Ridge National Laboratory, who is the author of too many books and reports on energy to mention. Although her slides were almost illegible, she presented some pretty frightening statistics including her calculations that we have used up our carbon budget and only have about five years left to change our direction before climate change takes an irreversible course to someplace we don’t want to go.Since 2005, per capita U.S. energy use has decreased, primarily because the most energy-intensive industries are now mostly in other countries.Finally, addressing our regional audience, the southeast US has about 36% of the country’s population but uses 44% of total energy generation. What a lovely way to start the day.Rethinking public policiesThe most interesting information came out of two panel discussions. The morning session included a discussion of how public policy affects energy industry decisions. The moderator started with a review of current public policy: Electric utilities should produce reliable power at the lowest cost to the consumer; and a potential alternate policy to consider: Electric utilities should produce reliable power at the lowest cost to the environment. Kind of mind-blowingly simple concept, but changing core public policy is not easy, especially when it would likely increase energy costs to the end user.There was a good discussion on renewable energy standards, few of which currently exist in the southeast. North Carolina, one of the few states with a standard, is required to provide 12.5% of its energy from renewable sources by 2021, which has been calculated to cost $34 annually per household – a surprisingly reasonable cost.One panelist suggested that utilities should just charge all their customers for efficiency programs and then ask them if they want to take advantage of them. There’s something about that idea that appeals to me.There was a good discussion of how to effectively finance energy efficiency programs, including on-bill financing. It was pointed out that nationally, the default rate on power bills is 3/10 of 1% – seems like a great place to finance energy efficiency and renewable energy projects.A discussion of time-of-use dynamic pricing was interesting. Some utilities that have tried it were not successful because customers didn’t want to think about it. The consensus was that customers don’t want to make decisions on their power purchases.Duke Energy found that dynamic pricing led to overcharging for peak and undercharging for off peak power to provide enough incentive for customers to change their behavior. Utility managed controllers on HVAC and water heating equipment tends to work better to reduce peak loads.Getting efficiency doneThe afternoon panel included the director of the Charlottesville, Virgina, efficiency program; a developer from New Orleans; the Nashville, Tennessee director of sustainability; and a representative from Duke Energy, discussing the challenge of financing energy efficiency improvements.New Orleans has a program (supported by grant money) that provides financing for less than 4%. Non-subsidized loan programs find it almost impossible to get rates below 6%, due to administrative costs on small loans.Duke Energy threw out one of the best wild ideas of the day – a concept they are working on but have not yet implemented – offering a fixed monthly total bill to their customers based on historical costs. Not a fixed rate, but an actual fixed amount they will pay per month. They believe that it is possible to calculate a figure for each customer that will allow them to include the cost of performing efficiency improvements to a building in a monthly bill while still making a profit and lowering demand. If utilities were to do this, they would have an incentive to do improvements that really work, as they would benefit directly from good work and suffer from poor work.Probably my favorite comment of the day came towards the end of the afternoon panel. It was suggested that utilities should be able to withhold energy from inefficient buildings to help cut demand and incentivize people to improve their efficiency. Now, I don’t think anyone was seriously considering implementing this policy, but it was refreshing to hear uncensored, creative thinking, particularly from usually staid utility companies. I hope that some of the wild ideas I heard help move things forward in the not-too-distant future.last_img read more

‘Building Enclosure,’ Not ‘Building Envelope’

first_imgLanguage mattersHere’s why I think it does matter, though. Building science is a young science, crafting its own identity only in the 20th century. In contrast, physics has been around for thousands of years, and a lot of the material students learn in introductory physics classes is hundreds of years old. The battles over the fundamental terms is long over in that most fundamental of the sciences but still raging in one of the newest, building science. Green Building Vocabulary DisputesAnother vocabulary disputeWhat must we say? When I wrote about the debate over the terms “building envelope” vs. “building enclosure” recently, I favored the former but overall felt agnostic on whether we should choose one over the other. I didn’t think I’d change my mind. After reading the many comments from readers here in the Energy Vanguard Blog and in the two LinkedIn groups where I posted the article as well, I have indeed decided that we should go with one of the two terms and abandon the other.Although I’ve framed this debate as being between only the two terms I mentioned above, some of the commenters suggested other terms as well: building fabric, building shell, and building perimeter. Some also proposed a compromise approach using a combination word: envelosure or enclolope. Another contingent said it doesn’t really matter what you call it as long as the meaning is clear to all parties. * This statement contains an ironic twist because Planck later refused to accept the wave mechanics of Bohr, Heisenberg, and Pauli and became one of those old guys who couldn’t see the light, thus proving his statement correct. It’s important for experts in a field to agree on the terminology for ease and clarity of communication. Although the majority of people see “speed” and “velocity” as synonyms, for example, every physicist knows there’s an important distinction (velocity includes the direction) and uses the correct term when speaking about motion. “Envelope” and “enclosure” don’t have different meanings (yet), but it’s still important to choose one to avoid confusion.Max Planck, the physicist who first recognized the quantum nature of radiation and whose portrait is shown above, once wrote: “A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it.”This may not be about a scientific truth, but those who write the building science textbooks and teach the building science courses seem to have made their choice already. Their term is “building enclosure.” As the field develops, more and more people will be exposed first to that term, and those who prefer “building envelope” or other terms will die out.center_img RELATED ARTICLES Allison Bailes of Decatur, Georgia, is an energy consultant, RESNET-certified trainer, and the author of the Energy Vanguard blog. You can follow him on Twitter at @EnergyVanguard. Why I changed my mindWell, OK, that may not be exactly how it plays out, but I do think “building enclosure” is the better term to use. I’ve resisted it up till now because I was more comfortable with “building envelope” and because I wanted a better reason than the quip given by Joseph Lstiburek (“Envelopes are for Fedex; enclosures are for engineers”).Here’s what’s changed my mind:It’s confusing to have multiple terms in use for the same concept, especially one as fundamental as the boundary between conditioned space and the various types of unconditioned space.“Building enclosure” is already taking over the building science programs.I now believe “enclosure” is a better word for this concept than is “envelope.”Precision of language matters. The building enclosure is one of the most fundamental concepts in building science, and it does make sense to use a single term term to describe it. I’m now a convert to “building enclosure” and will use it exclusively.last_img read more

Googles tribute to Rukmini Devi Arundale on her 112th bday

first_imgNew Delhi, Feb 29 (PTI) On her 112th birth anniversary, Bharatnatyam exponent Rukmini Devi Arundale is honoured by Google, which designed a doodle on the danseuse.The doodle features a depiction of Rukmani Devi in traditional dance attire with flowers in her hair holding up a mudra amidst trademark lettering of the search giant in trailing pink. Rukmani Devi, who passed away in 1986, five days before what would have been her 82nd birthday, is considered the most important revivalist of Bharatnatyam from its original Sadhir style prevalent among Devadasis (temple dancers). Born in Madurai, the danseuse honed her dancing skills under the watchful eyes of Mylapore Gowri Amma and perfected her technique under the guidance of Pandanallur Meenakshi Sundaram Pillai. In 1935, Rukmini Devi gave her first public performance at the Diamond Jubilee Convention of the Theosophical Society. Rukmini Devi and her husband established Kalakshetra, an academy of dance and music, at Adyar, Chennai in January, 1936. In 1962, the academy moved its campus to Thiruvanmiyur.Today, it is a deemed university under the Kalakshetra Foundation, which counts amongst its noted students Radha Burnier, Sarada Hoffman, Anjali Mehr, Kamaladevi Chattopadhyay, Sanjukta Panigrahi, C V Chandrasekhar, Yamini Krishnamurthy and Leela Samson.Bharatnatyam, an Indian classical dance form, owes its current name to E Krishna Iyer and Rukmini Devi. The latter has been instrumental in modifying the Pandanallur style and removing the extraneous sringaar and erotic elements from the dance, which were the legacy of its Devadasi association.She is credited with introducing musical instruments such as violin, set and lighting design elements, innovative costumes and jewellery inspired by temple sculptures.advertisementRukmini Devi also created some of the pioneering dance dramas based on Indian epics such as the Ramayana and Gita Govinda.She was nominated to Rajya Sabha in 1952 and re-nominated in 1956. As a member of the Rajya Sabha, she was instrumental for the legislation for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act and for setting up of the Animal Welfare Board of India under her chairmanship in 1962. She remained on board until her demise in 1986. She was awarded the Padma Bhushan in 1956, and Sangeet Natak Akademi Fellowship in 1967 for her immense contribution to the Indian classical dance. In January 1994, an Act of the Indian Parliament recognised the Kalakshetra Foundation as an Institute of National Importance. PTI RC ANSlast_img read more
