Sony PlayStation 4 promises powerful visuals, social components, and cloud gaming
Feb 21, 2013 10:30 AM

At Sony's PlayStation press conference in New York yesterday, it became official: the next-gen PlayStation 4 gaming console is arriving for the 2013 holiday season. Sony's event was more of a teaser than an unveiling, though: The company never actually showed the new console or named a price. But what we did see was enough to stoke our excitement.

We always expect the next generation of gaming consoles to be smarter, stronger, and faster than the previous one. The PlayStation 4 certainly looks ready to deliver in that regard. The visuals were stunning on the game demos we were shown, and Sony claims that we will be able to download and update games in the background while playing. That's huge for anyone who has ever sat down to play a brand-new game, only to have to wait a half an hour for updates.

While we didn't see the PS4 itself, we did get a glimpse of its new DualShock 4 controller (below). While similar in design to the previous controller, it adds a speaker, better rumble capabilities, a Share button for creating and uploading game videos, a touch pad, and a "light bar" that works as a companion with another new peripheral, the PlayStation 4 Eye camera, to sense the depth and movement of the controller for in-game maneuvering.

Plays well with others.…...

Stochastic Frontier Analysis

...STOCHASTIC FRONTIER ANALYSIS 1 MOTIVATION • Usual textbook presentations treat producers as successful optimizers. They maximize production, minimize cost, and maximize profits. • Conventional econometric techniques build on this paradigm to estimate production/cost/profit function parameters using regression techniques where deviations of observed choices from optimal ones are modeled as statistical noise. • However though every producer may attempt to optimize, not all of them may succeed in their efforts. For example, given the same inputs, and the same technology, some will produce more output than others, i.e., some producers will be more efficient than others. • Econometric estimation techniques should allow for the fact that deviations of observed choices from optimal ones are due to two factors: failure to optimize i.e., inefficiency due to random shocks • Stochastic Frontier Analysis or SFA is one such technique to model producer behavior. 2 USEFULNESS OF SFA • SFA produces efficiency estimates or efficiency scores of individual producers. Thus one can identify those who need intervention and corrective measures. Since efficiency scores vary across producers, they can be related to producer characteristics like size, ownership, location, etc. Thus one can identify source of inefficiency. SFA provides a powerful tool for examining effects of intervention. For example, has efficiency of the banks changed after deregulation? Has this change varied......

Space: the Final Frontier

...SPACE: The Final Frontier Space, the final frontier. For years man has been fascinated with the vast, boundless, emptiness that surrounds and cradles our miniscule planet. Although it’s difficult to determine exactly what got me hooked on space exploration, I know it’s mainly about the discovery of things past-unknown to myself, or even the world. The technological and mechanical aspects very much intrigue me as well, in addition to it’s ability to bring many rivals together at a temporary truce for the sake of discovering something for all of mankind. Every kid has spend at least one day of their life looking up at the sky and thinking “I wonder what it’s like up there.” Maybe even wishing you could one day go up there and see for yourself. I had these childhood days, and still occasionally do. I ask myself, “What have we not discovered yet?” and “When will we make the next breakthrough of discovery, and how will that affect us as mankind?” I may think to myself and get lost in the concept that there is so much yet undiscovered to humans. Science has always been a strong-point of mine, as it is a subject built around, and constructed upon the basis of discovery. It comes as a surprise to many why we know so little about something that is so vast and limitless, not to mention something we are completely surrounded by! Space is incredibly , for lack of a better word, alien, to us. Some may argue that we know a lot about the universe outside the bounds of our earth’s......

The Frontier Myth

...Essay The Frontier Myth ------------------------------------------------- “Up to our own day American history has been in a large degree the history of the colonization of the Great West. The existence of an area of free land, its continuous recession, and the advance of American settlement westward explain American development. (…)American social development has been continually beginning over again on the frontier. This perennial rebirth, this fluidity of American life, this expansion westward with its new opportunities, its continuous touch with the simplicity of primitive society, furnish the forces dominating American character.” Source: http://www.learner.org/workshops/primarysources/corporations/docs/turner.html Frederick Jackson Turner The Frontier is a prominent symbol of American culture. Although it intimidated the colonists and later Americans, it did not prevent them from spreading. What drove them was “the idea of unlimited free land, a sense of unlimited opportunity and optimism”1. The idea of the frontier was significant in American culture between 1860 and 1893 because it was considered by many to be “the last frontier.” “Since the beginning of the European settlements, westward expansion had always served as an inspiration to those dreaming to start a new life.”1 With the last of the frontier being absorbed into civilization, its importance to the American people rose more than ever. Frederick Jackson Turner said that this closing of the frontier......

This paper reviews the development of marketing communication planning and moves into the current and future multimedia marketplace. The New Marketing Frontier Sundeep Kumar Mohanty PGDM 13-15 IBA, Bangalore The New Marketing Frontier Over the last 20 years, there have been advances in marketing media outlets and strategies. One of the more recent forms is referred to as Social Media Marketing. This method can be defined in a number of ways, but one of the best descriptions came from a marketing professor at The University of Cincinnati, Ric Sweeny, “Social media marketing is the ability to use nontraditional communication and connection to build a brand.” Social media is one of today’s biggest forms of communication and it has not only changed the way people interact everyday but also the way companies communicate. Today's marketers have adapted the various forms of social media to perform a business purpose. As a result the adaptation of social media has taken been a focus of innovation and ideas for the marketing world. Contemporary forms of social media are found in two very popular websites, Facebook and Twitter. Together, these sites are defining the platform for social media in the digital world, and continue to adapt and evolve with advances in technology and consumer preferences.

The Wild Frontier

...The Wild Frontier – Terminal Services In order to provide appropriate support in terms of software and applications for the new satellite offices there is a need to develop and deliver a comprehensive solution which also meets the support requirements of self-sufficiency for these locations. As a result the use of Terminal Services would be the most appropriate and efficient solution in order to deliver the necessary applications and services. The use of Terminal Services will require the servers which reside at the head office location – and where IT personnel are more readily available to provide and meet configuration and maintenance requirements – to support the hosting of multiple sessions from network-connected workstations at the satellite offices which will then provide users with the necessary applications and services which they need in order to fulfil their designated roles and responsibilities. This will not only provide an effective and efficient means of accessing the necessary services and applications which are required by each of the satellite offices and their users but will also provide an increased level of security through which information and data is maintained across the organization. With the removal of local storage and servers for example through the provision of Terminal Services to these locations would therefore negate the need for the following physical elements to be maintained at each site: * Application Servers * File......

The New Frontier: Data Analytics

...Assignment 1: The New Frontier: Data Analytics xxxxxx Professor xxxx CIS500: Information System Decision Making April 17, 20xx Strayer University The New Frontier: Data Analytics Abstract The word “tweet” was first defined as “a chirping noise” whose origin dated back to 1768. Since 2011, Merriam Webster dictionary extends that definition to mean “a post made on the Twitter online messaging service”. Mention of the adoption of “tweet” into the Merriam Webster Dictionary is designed to illustrate two main points; that information can be ambiguous and that technology can reweave the very fabric of human culture. According to research done by Zikopoulos, Eaton, Deroos, Deutsch, & Lapis (2012), there exists 800,000 petabytes (PB) of data stored in the world in the year 2000. By their estimates, that number could reach 35 zettabytes (ZB) by the year 2020 (p. 39). The ability to analyze and process the enormous amount of data is a costly undertaking for companies that are behind the curve and a lucrative business for those that are ahead of the game. Each tweet and post contribution from the users that share the web space further buries the proverbial haystack. It is the ability to sift through the data that determines whether a company can gain traction in their respective industry or if they are simply spinning their wheels. This research paper, centered on Capital Cube and their parent company analytixinsight, will aim to discuss how data analytics is paramount to......
