Spotify has been quietly killing your SSD’s life for months
Yahoo News - 3 months
Spotify is one of the most popular music streaming services out there. But it turns out it’s also a dangerous one, at least for your SSD’s life. The app has been quietly killing your SSD’s life for months by writing massive amounts of data over and over, even when the service was in idle mode. DON’T MISS: Best Buy has a great Black Friday Galaxy S7 deal you can use right now The problem should be fixed thanks to a new update that Spotify is rolling out, but Ars Technica reports that the problem wasn’t addressed in a speedy manner. Users have been complaining about the issue for at least five months on the company’s official forum, but also on Reddit, Hacker News, and other places. "This is a *major* bug that currently affects thousands of users," Spotify user Paul Miller told Ars . "If for example, Castrol Oil lowered your engine's life expectancy by five to 10 years, I imagine most users would want to know, and that fact *should* be reported on." Ars was able to replicate the problem, ...

The pros and cons of having a ridiculous bejeweled phone case
Yahoo News - 4 months
Many months ago I looked at a photo with Circuit Breaker editor Paul Miller and we agreed that the photo was beautiful. It’s beautiful not just because Lana Del Rey is in it and she has an extremely good manicure, but because it’s the perfect bathroom selfie. This bejeweled BlackBerry phone case is so loud that it almost declares itself the subject of the image.

Mortgages may be a bright spot for U.S. bank results in first quarter
Yahoo News - almost 2 years
U.S. bank earnings likely got a lift from mortgage lending in the first quarter, as lower rates spurred a surge in applications to refinance home loans, one of several glimmers of hope for a sector that has lately struggled with weak growth. Most are expected to post relatively big profit increases excluding one-time items, according to average analyst forecasts from Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S after a year-ago period when results were depressed by weak mortgage and trading revenues. Mortgage banking revenue will probably be greater than people are expecting," said Paul Miller, an equity research analyst at FBR Capital Markets. With those declines, the Mortgage Bankers Association's index of applications to refinance mortgage more than doubled from the end of December through the middle of January.

TransCanada profit beats estimates, boosts dividend
Yahoo News - about 2 years
By Julie Gordon VANCOUVER (Reuters) - TransCanada Corp , Canada's second-largest pipeline company, reported on Friday a better-than-expected fourth quarter profit, driven mainly by increased earnings from its Canadian operations. The Calgary-based company, which operates oil and gas pipelines across North America, also said it has not yet seen any impact from the plunge in crude prices on its new and proposed oil pipeline projects. "We haven't had any impact from the decline in the commodity price," said Paul Miller, TransCanada's president of liquid pipelines, on a conference call with investors. "The shippers who have signed up for these pipes are still fully behind us." TransCanada is the company behind the $8 billion Keystone XL pipeline and is also developing the C$12 billion ($9.6 billion) Energy East line, which would connect the Alberta oil sands to refineries and export terminals in Eastern Canada.

Xbox One, the destroyer: Microsoft's weird marketing blitz is novelty sized

First, a giant Windows Phone consumed Paul Miller with its gaping live tile maw. Then, Microsoft erected a giant Surface tablet to conquer all of London. And today, to celebrate the upcoming Xbox One launch, Microsoft has revealed its latest product prop: a ridiculously large Xbox One in Vancouver. Straight reports that the console is 40 feet long and 20 feet wide, and that the prop will "unlock" if enough people "pledge" their gamertags — hinting that the next-generation monument could be preparing for some sort of human sacrifice.

Spencer Critchley: What's Next for Content Marketing: No Content
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Content marketing is all the rage right now, and for good reason. In a digital world, people's attention is divided among a nearly infinite range of media choices. That means it's harder and harder to push a message at them, the way you used to with traditional advertising and PR. So instead, you pull, by creating compelling content that attracts customers to you -- content marketing. Hence the explosion of publishing activity by businesses, non-profits and other organizations, through email, social media, blogs, image sharing, games and more. According to a recent report by the Content Marketing Institute and MarketingProfs: "On average, B2B [business to business] marketers are spending 33 percent of their marketing budgets on content marketing, which is up from 26 percent last year. 54 percent plan on increasing content marketing spending next year... This year, B2B marketers are most challenged with producing enough content, which is different from years past, ...

Review: The Crooked Billet, Worsthorne
Burnley Express - over 3 years
This traditional, free house country pub, situated on the outskirts of Burnley, is a delightful establishment, offering you a warm, friendly welcome – and an excellent range of cask-conditioned beers. The pub is run by Alison Leigh and Paul Miller – who purchased this fine watering hole from Punch Taverns 15 months ago – and in that short space of time, have changed a once ailing pub in to a thriving hub of the community. Landlady Alison has worked here for over 20 years and said: “The pub had been deteriorating for some time and Punch Taverns put it on the market in 2011 – it had had various temporary managers – but the pub continued to struggle.” Thankfully, that has now all changed – with it now being a most impressive hostelry. The pub has a spacious open-plan bar area – and also boasts a fine “snug” room – which is popular with local community groups and regular customers, alike. The range of ales and lagers are exceptional – seven cask beers, from just £2.30 a pint, and five ...

Regional Banks 'Ace' Stress Tests: Miller
The Street - almost 4 years
NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The Federal Reserve late on Thursday announced the results of its annual stress tests for the 18 largest U.S. banks, with Bank of America and four larger regional banks emerging as "winners," according to FBR analyst Paul Miller. For bank stocks investors, the Fed's announcement on Thursday only told part of the story. The regulator on March 14 will announce the results of another set of tests, applying the large banks' 2013 capital plans to the "severely adverse scenario" of a severe recession beginning this year. That's when the Fed will announce whether or not it approves stress-tested banks' plans to return additional capital to investors through dividend increases and/or stock buybacks. The Fed's stressed scenario includes a 4% increase in the unemployment rate during 2013, along with 5% negative GDP growth, a 50% decline in equity prices and a 20% decline in real estate prices. All of the banks tested in the first round would remain well-capitali ...

TransCanada Confident Keystone XL Will Be Approved by Summer -Executive
Fox Business News - almost 4 years
TransCanada Corp. (TRP) still fully expects to receive approval for its controversial cross-border Keystone XL pipeline expansion within the next several months, a company executive said Thursday. TransCanada, which has been waiting for White House approval for the 830,000 barrel-a-day pipeline expansion for years, expects to receive the necessary permit "by the first half of 2013," Paul Miller, TransCanada's senior vice president in charge of oil pipelines, said on the sidelines of the Platts North American Marketing conference in Houston. "We anticipate to have this in service by end of 2014 or beginning of 2015," Mr. Miller said. The pipeline is meant to ship heavy crude oil from Alberta, where production is expected to grow to 4.5 million barrels a day by the end of the decade. But the project has gained criticism from environmental groups who say it will spur increased production from Canada's tar sands, an energy intensive process some groups say will cause an increase in green ...

AlaskaDispatch.com: Alaska GOP's Big Tent: Too big, or Too Big to Fail?
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Over the course of decades, the Alaska Republican Party built itself a political powerhouse by erecting a big tent with room for a lot of divergent views. And today the party finds itself with a war beneath the big top focused on who is and who isn't conservative enough. On one side are supporters of Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, the loser of the 2010 Republican primary who pulled off an unprecedented write-in campaign to win the general election. On the other are arch-conservative backers of failed Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul and failed Senate candidate Joe Miller. Feelings run high on both sides. Angry Murkowski supporters worried about a party takeover by Paul-Miller insurgents rolled party chairman-elect Russ Millette. That left Millette supporters outraged. After the party's state executive committee voted to oust the 67-year-old Millette, one Miller supporter observed "this stuff has nothing to do with Millette. These Murkowski pricks are completel ...

Bank Stocks and the Secret of NIM (Update 2)
The Street - about 4 years
Updated with market close information, comments from FIG Partners analyst and Oppenheimer analyst Terry McEvoy on FirstMerit, and comments on Regions Financial from FBR analyst Paul Miller. NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Bank stock investors need to look beyond declining net interest margins and focus on what really matters. A bank's net interest margin (NIM) is the spread between the average yield on loans and deposits and the average cost for deposits and borrowings. With the Federal Reserve keeping its target range for the short-term federal funds rate in a range of zero to 0.25% since late 2008, the majority of banks have already seen most of the benefit they will realize on the cost side, while most continue to see their yields on earning assets decline. ...

Clint Wilder: SXSW Eco: Bringing Good Energy to Clean Energy, and Much More

In my job as a journalist and analyst covering the clean-tech industry, I get to attend events that span a wide range of cultures, from the button-down Renewable Energy Finance Forum-Wall Street to the organic vegan lefty-ness of the Green Festival and everything in between. But I've never experienced one event that brought all these cultures together like the recently concluded -- and quite awesome -- SXSW Eco conference in Austin, Texas, earlier this month. In just its second year, SXSW Eco is a spinoff of Austin's legendary SXSW music/film/digital media extravaganza that draws a mind-boggling 300,000 people to south-central Texas for 10 days every March. Its Eco baby had a mere 2,000 attendees, which of course is huge for an enviro/sustainability conference. And what a time it was.

Jared Konczal: Evaluating the Effects of Accelerators? Not So Fast
Huffington Post - over 4 years
If anything good can be said about this agonizingly slow economic recovery, it is that there is growing interest in helping startups launch and succeed, because we know that new firms create new jobs. There are an increasing number of initiatives seeking to support entrepreneurs as they launch their businesses. I am focusing in this post on the outcomes of so-called startup accelerator programs. Are they helping new firms succeed and, therefore, having a healthy impact on the economy? First, let's define some terms. Many people conflate business incubators with accelerators. We need to make a distinction between the two. A business incubator in the purest sense refers to an office park or building complex that charges businesses, typically new businesses that cannot afford their own offices, some rent in exchange for space within the incubator and some administrative services and infrastructural support. Over time, the term business incubator has accrued some negative conno ...

Music Review: Matisyahu - Spark Seeker Seattle Post-Intelligencer Copyright 2012 Seattle Post-Intelligencer. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Published 1:23 p.m., Thursday, August 2, 2012 For a while I was a fan of Matisyahu (real name, Matthew Paul Miller) but I think that may have been a moment where I was caught up in the novelty of a man decidedly rocking a Hebrew stage name and traditional jewish themes into the world of hip-hop with a nod towards reggae. Really, when he dropped his second album Youth, despite the fact that iTunes ran a special promotion for pre-orders, it wasn't until the video dropped for "King without a Crown" that people noticed the novelty of the look Matisyahu was bringing to a genre. Enter Spark Seeker, Matisyahu's fourth studio album (I'm not sure I even knew the man had a third drop in 2009, which was Light) and I'm going to be honest and say I g ...
