All the ways the Warriors can keep Marquese Chriss

first_imgSAN FRANCISCO — When Marquese Chriss was mulling over where to play this season, the Warriors offered him something more than the two-way contracts that made up most of his options.“They told me they would give me a fair shot to make the team,” Chriss said. “I think they’ve done that. They’ve put me in position to succeed.”Impressed with Chriss in practice, coach Steve Kerr moved the 22-year-old big man into the starting lineup as the Warriors deal with preseason injuries to centers Willie …last_img read more

Dyyno: Stream Live Video From Any Desktop App

first_imgUntil today, Dyyno was probably best known for powering the video back-end of popular gaming portals like Xfire or Outspark, where hundreds of users stream live videos of their gaming sessions at any given time of the day. Starting today, however, Dyyno will also offer personal and customizable channels for individuals and businesses. Thanks to Dyyno’s hybrid P2P approach, users can easily stream their games, videos, webcams, and presentations from their desktop to up to 10,000 concurrent viewers.We had a chance to talk to Dyyno’s CEO Raj Jaswa and Vamshi Sriperumbudur, the company’s head of marketing, last week. During the demo, they both stressed the fact that Dyyno’s hybrid P2P architecture allows the company to provide reliable video streams while also keeping prices low. Dyyno can backfill these P2P streams with the help of its own servers, though at this point, the team has managed to bring the ratio between P2P traffic and streams from it’s own servers up to 98%. PricingPersonal accounts with one channel cost $10 per month (up to 10 concurrent viewers) and the company also offers accounts for small businesses at $100 per month (with 10 channels) and an account geared towards larger enterprises at $1,000 per month (which allows for 100 channels with 1000 concurrent streams). Not-for-profits, as well as education and religious organizations can also get access to this account for $1,000 per month. Tags:#Product Reviews#web CompatibilityBecause of the company’s reliance on its proprietary P2P architecture, however, users will have to install a plugin when they want to watch your streams. Currently, Dyyno doesn’t offer a plugin for Macs, so this might be a deal breaker for quite a few potential users for now, though the company expects to ship its Mac plugin soon. While Dyyno works well in Firefox and Internet Explorer, we should also point out that Google’s Chrome also isn’t supported yet.Easy to Use, Excellent Video QualityWhen it works, however, Dyyno works extremely well and just as advertised. To share any part of your screen, you just drag and drop the Dyyno logo from the desktop client to any window and the sharing session will start. If you want to switch to another application, just drag the logo over to the next application. The video quality was generally excellent and you can also manually set the output resolution (up to 1024×768) and frame rate (up to 20 frames per second). In addition, you can also broadcast sounds from your computer as well. WebExBecause Dyyno can easily stream video from any application, including webcams, video players, and games, it makes for a very flexible platform. In addition, Dyyno also offers a solution for Cisco’s popular WebEx online meeting solution. This brings all of Dyyno’s capabilities to WebEx and makes it easy to integrate Dyyno into a platform that a lot of companies have already invested in.A Few Missing FeaturesWe did miss a few features, though. It would be nice, for example, if channels featured a chat room, something we have come to expect from similar solutions. It is also currently not possible to embed a video stream on another site. The company tells us that these features are forthcoming, but for the time being, they are sorely missed.Overall, though, assuming you are on a Windows PC, Dyyno offers a high-quality solution for anybody who needs to stream video from a desktop directly to the web.

The Developers Guide To Android History [Infographic]

first_imgWhat it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology Related Posts Mobile app developers have a favorite pastime: complaining about fragmentation in the world of Android. “So many screen sizes! So many version numbers! Why can’t Google be more like Apple and make it simple?”Developers tend to be a whiny lot. Yet, it can be hard to keep track of the ever-evolving Android platform. Since 2008, there have been 39 updates to Android among nine major system versions. From Cupcake version 1.5 to Jelly bean version 4.2.2, there have been thousands of design changes, feature additions, security updates and general improvements to Android. Only the most dedicated of developers can tell you precisely what is different in each version of Android. Add all of the major and minor tweaks Google has added to Android with devices from the likes of Samsung, HTC, Motorola, LG and others and it becomes a complicated environment in which to build an app.Boston-based mobile cloud services company Kinvey understands developers’ pain. It has created a handy infographic that maps the major changes to Android from inception to the latest build and even speculates on what might be coming next with the so-called Android 5.0, Key Lime Pie, which Google will likely announce at its I/O developers conference in May. Some highlights: Android 1.0 – Inception dan rowinski Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagementcenter_img Android 2.3 – GingerbreadNear Field Communications (NFC)Video chat in Google TalkExtra Large screen sizes supported (for Google TV)Android 3.0 – HoneycombDedicated tablet supportVirtual and holographic user interfaceNew Action BarAndroid 4.0 – Ice Cream SandwichGoogle Chrome for Android browserSwipe to dismiss notificationsResizable WidgetsAndroid 4.1 – Jelly BeanGoogle NowProject Butter improves user experienceGoogle Cloud MessagingCheck out the infographic from Kinvey below.

Herrera’s Bunt, Blast Leads Cubs Over Feeble Mets for Sweep in NY

first_imgNEW YORK — By the time Jonathan Herrera and Miguel Montero homered, the Chicago Cubs didn’t really need the extra runs.Once again, their pitchers had shut down the feeble New York Mets.Herrera neatly filled in for Kris Bryant with a squeeze bunt and homer for three RBIs that sent Jake Arrieta and the Cubs past the Mets 6-1 Thursday for a three-game sweep.“We can pitch with anybody, we can swing the bats, our defense can play lights out,” Arrieta said.The Cubs beat the Mets for a team-record ninth time in a row, and finished 7-0 against them this season. Chicago outscored New York 9-1 in this series at Citi Field.“I can’t sit here and tell you we bludgeoned them,” Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. “I know they’ve been offensively challenged. So have we. It’s the ebb and flow of the season.”Arrieta (8-5) pitched eight sharp innings, helping extend the Cubs’ shutout string to 25 innings before the Mets managed their only run of this set.Arrieta gave up five hits, walked none and struck out seven. The crowd booed several times as New York kept making weak outs and breaking their bats — Cubs outfielders didn’t catch a flyball until the eighth.Jacob deGrom (8-6) doubled and scored for the Mets, who have totaled a mere 23 runs in 14 games.DeGrom delivered another hard hit, too. The righty exited after Herrera’s two-run homer in the sixth inning, then punched a Gatorade cooler in the dugout with his pitching hand.“I told the team inside, no disrespect to anybody in this room, we have to lighten it up around here,” Mets manager Terry Collins said.“They are so tense and so tight and so worried about making a big out instead of walking up there like they’re going to get a hit,” he said. “We got to lighten it up, so I said just for heaven’s sakes play the game with some fun, with some energy, with some enthusiasm.”Maddon gave Bryant a routine day off, wanting to rest the slugging rookie third baseman. Maddon also said Herrera often made good things happen when he was in the lineup, and the quirky skipper was right.“He stays ready,” Maddon said. “He’s just a solid, solid guy to have on the team.”The Cubs arrived in New York with a five-game losing streak, and Maddon brought in a magician to entertain the players before the series opener. That was theme of the visit as their woes disappeared — prior to the finale, the clubhouse was filled with the 1965 hit “Do You Believe in Magic” by The Lovin’ Spoonful.Arrieta said the sweep was no illusion.“Overall, we knew we had to pick it up,” he said. “We had to make a decision coming here: Were we up for the challenge?”Herrera put the Cubs ahead 1-0 in the second with a first-pitch, safety-squeeze bunt with runners at the corners. Anthony Rizzo blooped an RBI single for 2-1 lead in the fifth.Herrera hit his first home run in nearly two years, sending a drive off the padding on top of the right-field wall to match his career high for RBIs. It was the Cubs’ first homer in nine games.Montero hit a two-run homer in the ninth. The catcher also picked off Daniel Murphy at first base on a call reversed by replay.DeGrom and Curtis Granderson doubled in the third for the Mets’ run, stopping their scoreless streak at a season-high 22 innings.TRAINER’S ROOMCubs: OF Jorge Soler, who’s missed nearly a month with a sprained left ankle, is “close” to returning, Maddon said. Maddon said it’s possible he could be back when Chicago hosts St. Louis early next week.Mets: LF Michael Cuddyer missed his second straight game because of a sore left knee. He’s been given two injections and Collins wants to see if they’ll take effect soon.UP NEXTCubs: Back at Wrigley Field on Friday afternoon to take on Miami, beginning a 10-game homestand leading into the All-Star break. Jason Hammel (5-3, 2.92) faces the Marlins’ Tom Koehler (6-4, 3.66).Mets: Start a rugged six-game trip by facing Clayton Kershaw at Dodger Stadium on Friday night, followed by Los Angeles ace Zack Greinke on the Fourth of July. Then the Mets visit San Francisco next week, where they’re lined up to see rookie Chris Heston, who pitched a no-hitter against them June 9. Noah Syndergaard, Matt Harvey and rookie Steven Matz start for the Mets in LA.SWEEPOLOGYThis was the fourth time the Cubs have swept a season series of at least five games. They went 6-0 against in Atlanta in 2008, and twice did it a long time ago — in 1876 vs. Cincinnati and 1885 vs. Buffalo. … The Cubs swept a series of at least three games on the road against the Mets for the first time since in 1991. … The Mets were swept in a season series of at least seven games for the first time.BEN WALKER, AP Baseball WriterTweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more
