After Localization, Software Needs ‘Countrification’

Users come in many shapes and sizes. More importantly, users come in many different creeds, cultures and country-specific peculiarities… and so that means they need to use software in a specific way that might appear to be quite alien to someone in another part of the world.

We already have localisation; as we know, this is the process of translating software user interfaces to different languages along with supporting instructions, documentation, web resources and so on.

Despite the fact that the overwhelming majority of actual ‘command line’ programming on the planet is done English, prudent software developers leave a provisioning

REV Asia Bhd is returning to the digital media space — a segment it exited in 2017 when it sold its then core business to Media Prima Group Bhd — with ambitions of being a unicorn company.

“Our aim over the next four to five years is to make the company the first true consumer internet unicorn — in terms of ringgit — on Bursa,” Patrick Grove, director of Rev Asia, tells The Edge.

Its target valuation of RM1 billion is rather lofty, given Rev Asia’s current market capitalisation of a mere RM27.6 million.

It is also five times more than the RM187.15 million in market capitalisation — the highest ever — achieved in September 2014.

Given the tough operating environment and prolonged global uncertainty, how achievable is Rev Asia’s ambitious target?

The group believes it can be achieved through mergers and acquisitions (M&A).

Study finds link between screen time, dietary patterns and various health behaviors

The era of the television brought with it the TV dinner — a fast, convenient meal that, while nutritionally questionable, meant the whole family could gather together on the sofa to enjoy “The Ed Sullivan Show” and eat their Swanson Salisbury steak, too.

Over the next several decades, advancements in technology and the ubiquity of streaming services has allowed for the proliferation of binge-watching culture, where hours spent sedentary rack up faster than “Jeopardy” points, and greasy fast food is only a few taps on your smartphone away.

Chris Wharton, assistant dean of innovation and strategic initiatives at Arizona State University’s College of Health Solutions, whose research interests include lifestylewide behavior change, wanted to know what kind of relationship the time we spend in front of screens has with various health behaviors and factors.

In a study recently published in BMC Public

All BART stations back online after computer issue canceled Sunday morning service

SAN JOSE — All BART stations were back online by Sunday afternoon after a computer issue shut the transit agency down all morning.

BART spokesman Jim Allison said the agency restored service to all San Francisco, Peninsula and East Bay stations. Staff were still gathering information about the computer communication problem. In a thread posted on Twitter just before 2 p.m. Sunday, BART officials said one of the dozens of field network devices failed “disrupting the operational communications network.” The system, BART said, “went into fail safe mode and shut down.”

“Engineers and technicians worked to locate the failed device and to restore communications functionality,” BART officials said. “It’s unacceptable not to have service. Engineers have implemented a configuration change to the network which i expected to protect against future device failures that could potentially shut down the system. We apologize for not being able to provide service earlier.

2020 has been a year not quite like any other for ThousandEyes Inc., a network intelligence company that produces software that analyzes the performance of local and wide area networks. Cisco Systems Inc. completed acquiring the company in August, and this took place in the midst of dealing with a pandemic where people worked from home and the internet became crucial for network operations and automation for companies across the globe.

How Green Is Your Software?

Illustration by Ricardo Tomás

Without doubt, software is the backbone of virtually all the intelligent solutions designed to support the environment. It’s critical, for example, in efforts to tackle deforestation and reduce emissions. In many instances, however, software is also part and parcel of a rapidly growing carbon footprint. In fact, recent and proliferating digital technologies have begun to worsen many of the environmental problems they are aimed at solving. But companies can make software an integral part of their sustainability efforts by taking its carbon footprint into account in the way it is designed, developed, and deployed and by rethinking some aspects of how the data centers that provide cloud-based services operate.

Let’s be clear: On its own, software doesn’t consume energy or emit any harmful discharge. The problem lies in the way software is developed for use — and then in the way it is used. Software runs
