Zeusmos – The Installous Alternative

Zeus

One of the draws of jailbreaking was always the ability to try apps before you buy them. After all, if you’re going to spend $10 on something, you want to be sure you’re getting your money’s worth. Well, as you may or may not know, Installous was shut down some time ago. However, that does not mean the end of the “try before you buy” movement. Let me introduce you to Zeusmos.

Zeusmos is a great deal like Installous in that it lets you download and install apps so that you can try them. Getting Zeusmos is just as easy as getting nearly any other jailbreak app. Here are the steps:

  1. Open Cydia store and go to Manage—>Sources.
  2. Now tap on ‘Edit’ then add the following repo to Cydia: ihacksrepo.com and then tap on Add Source.
  3. Now search for ‘Zeusmose’ on Cydia and download it..
  4. That’s it, now and after you restart Springboard you should see Zeusmos app available at your iPhone Springboard.

The Electronic Health Record – Where We Are, Where We’re Going

No situation is more devastating to an industry than to be data rich and information poor. Unless we can effectively use our data to get information, then we may as well not even have the data.

There are a variety of EHRs on the market right now – PowerChart, Quadramed, Amazing Charts, SOAPware, to name but a few – and they all do pretty much the same thing – display data about a patient. Essentially, they’ve become a digital version of the paper charts. Sure, they look nicer, are easier to use, and let you quickly find information, but for most purposes, they really don’t do much more than a traditional paper chart does.

So what’s wrong with this picture? Continue reading

Is It Legal To Use A Keylogger? The Uses Of Computer Monitoring Software

This is a guest post written by Lewis Waller of Gecko Monitor. The views expressed herein are those of the author and may not necessarily reflect the views of this site.

There are many reasons someone might want to use computer monitoring software (sometimes referred to as a keylogger) and over the years, because of the way they work, they have acquired a malicious reputation. This of course, could be true, but as with a lot of things it’s not the thing itself that’s malicious or dangerous but the way you put it to use.

There are a multitude of uses for computer monitoring software but I’m going to start off by answering the title question – Is using one legal? Firstly, laws obviously vary from state to state and country to country. That being said, the following laws will usually apply; You may use a keylogger/computer monitoring software if: Continue reading

Top Personal Cloud Sites

Our industry is going through quite a wave of innovation and it’s being powered by a phenomenon which is referred to as the cloud. – Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft
Cloud computing and storage are rapidly changing our concept of the computer and how we store and share information. Whereas we used to rely on local storage and USB flash drives, the cloud has freed us to have our data anywhere and anytime. Why carry around a thumb drive? They break, they get lost, they’re something else you have to remember. The cloud solves these problems, and companies have taken notice. Listed below are some of the top cloud sites that you can sign up for now. All of them are free, and all of them have paid versions to expand their capability. Continue reading

IntelliscreenX alone makes jailbreaking iOS 5 worthwhile

Of all the new tweaks coming out for iOS 5, IntelliscreenX is by far the best of them. Apple’s introduction of the Notification Center has revitalized the iPhone aging notification center and provided a way to organize all the various notifications that one receives during the day. However, like most things in life, it can always be a little better.

With this tweak, the iOS 5 Notification Center can be added to the Lockscreen, and you will not only be able to view the Notification Center from the lockscreen on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad, but also dramatically extend the functionality of the Notification Center by adding the following features:

  • Collapsible Sections
  • QuickSettings Widget (frequently used functions such as airplane mode and brightness controller)
  • Top Shelf (A configurable bar that appears above notifications)
  • View Full Emails, Calendar, and receive RSS, Facebook and Twitter updates
  • Much more…

Kevin Slavin: How Algorithms Shape Our World

Kevin Slavin argues that we’re living in a world designed for — and increasingly controlled by — algorithms. In this riveting talk from TEDGlobal, he shows how these complex computer programs determine: espionage tactics, stock prices, movie scripts, and architecture. And he warns that we are writing code we can’t understand, with implications we can’t control.


IBM’s Watson enters medicine

IBM’s first TV commercial advertising Watson’s capabilities in medicine. I find this system incredibly fascinating. Medicine has evolved to the point where it is no longer possible to know every aspect of every disease. Watson promises to help doctors improve diagnosis and better tailor treatments to individual patients.

Watson’s technical specifications:

  • 90 IBM Power 750 servers enclosed in 10 racks
  • 16 Terabytes of memory
  • A 2,880 processor core
  • Linux system
  • While not officially disclosed by IBM, Watson is estimated to have cost $1-$2 billion
  • Uses “DeepQA”: a technology that enables computer systems to directly and precisely answer natural language questions over an open and broad range of knowledge
