Five QNX videos more people ought to see

Looking for examples of how people use QNX? You've come to the right place. From outer space to the automotive space, these five videos demonstrate the sheer flexibility and dynamic range of QNX technology. Better yet, you get to hear five users describe, in their own words, why QNX is important to what they do.

QNX in space
First up is Iain Christie of Neptec, the company responsible for creating the SVS and LCS camera systems on the NASA space shuttle. Highlight: when Ian explains the importance of QNX to the shuttle program (1:46). For more on the QNX-based LCS system, see my previous post.

QNX in the clinic
Next up is Vladimir Derenchuk of the Indiana University Health Proton Therapy Center, which uses proton beams to blast difficult-to-treat tumors. Highlight: it's all good, but listen to Vladimir explain why they chose QNX, and how it has helped with FDA approvals (1:34).

QNX in the HVAC
Next up is Hans Symanczik of Kieback & Peter, a German firm that has used QNX in building automation systems for more than 20 years. Highlight: when Hans explains the ultimate benefit of the QNX OS (2:07).

QNX on the air
Next up is Mikael Vest of NTP, a Danish company that supplies QNX-based audio routers to the global television and radio broadcasting industry. Highlight: Mikael himself, who gladly did this interview despite suffering from a flu to end all flus. A real trooper.

QNX on the road
Next up is Rick Kreifeldt of Harman International, a company known in the automotive industry for its ability to push the technology envelope. Highlight: the section where Rick's respect for the QNX team shines through (2:14).

QNX in flight
And last but not least is Thomas Allen from Mechtronix, a company that has developed an innovative, software-based approach to building flight simulators. Highlight: when Allen states that Mechtronix simulators effectively use the same software architecture as the QNX OS (0:45). Years, ago, someone explained to me how the QNX OS isn't simply a well-designed, modular OS; it also encourages well-designed, modular systems. In Mechtronix, we have an example.

Donkeytale is Ruining This Blog

He says the new Kimberlin story is simply a retread of the Aaron Walker story. He couldn't be farther from the truth.

There is something very odd going on between Brett and his wife Tetyana along with her current boyfriend.

Walker just happened to notice it through checking in on simple to access, online court data. He and Hoge went to the hearing. They obviously got access to court documents and then posted them.

This is from Tetyana's public photobucket page.

Yes, I have been within feet of her. That was in September 2011. She was standing next to BK at his table. I do recall her cringing in horror when I asked Brett why he set the bombs.

Here is from the paperwork from her boyfriend:

Donkeytale's whole online existence is an attempt to placate his overwhelming ego. He may or may not be a political operative, but he did get busted playing a 20 year old at Booman Tribune. He did post as Petey at Daily Kos.

He claims to be a businessman Latino. Yet because of his background of made up personae, nothing he ever posts can be assumed as truthful.

He could be a small time journalist. He could be a capitalist. He could be a political operative. We don't know because he is an anonymous coward. What we can be assured of is that he is a jerk. We can perhaps take him at his word for only one thing. He does appear to have a seat reserved for himself at Satan's dinner table.

I'm hoping he will simply go away. Unfortunately with sadists, that is truly wishful thinking.

Schadenfreude is probably the wrong word to describe how I feel about the new BK stuff.

Yes, he deserves everything that comes to him. He set bombs and Carl Delong died as a result.

He is highly manipulative and a serial liar.

I do believe he might also still be dangerous.

The hope must be that he doesn't desire a return to prison.

Does anyone else believe he is posting as Breitbart Unmasked? That Twitter username has been having a public meltdown the last couple days. It hadn't tweeted in several months. If that isn't Kimberlin, then nothing will ever make sense. Why am I the only one who seems to realise that sounds like Brett?

I am going to open up this blog again to anonymous comments. I'm sorry I allowed donkeytale to ruin it. That is going to stop. Finally. I am too nice a guy. I never hold grudges. That is why I keep allowing this creep to return. I forget about all the times he has been sadistic.

Donkeytale is now on a very short leash. He has proven yet again this week how much of a narcissistic waste of time he can be. It's too bad. You'd think a dude now into his 60's would cop on and stop being such a dirtbag. But he cannot help it. Some people cannot prevent themselves from fitting into the "mean people suck" category.

Putting faces to names at the UOIT Faculty Summit for Mobile Computing

Jin Xu
A guest post from my colleague Jin Xu, Global Education Program Manager, QNX Software Systems

I always enjoy the experience of putting faces to names. And that’s exactly what happened to me on May 30 at the University of Ontario Technology Institute (UOIT) in Oshawa.

As manager of the QNX in Education program, I had spoken to many of institute’s professors over email or the phone, but never had the chance to meet them in person. So I was thrilled to greet and meet so many of them during a single event.

Fifty-five university faculties from 22 universities across Canada got together on May 30 in OUIT for a two-day mobile computing summit held in partnership with the BlackBerry Academic Program. The universities attending this event included:

      Albert Campbell C.I. — Toronto, ON
      Bucks County Community College— Newton, PA, US
      Centennial College — Toronto, ON
      Conestoga College — Guelph, ON
      Dalhousie University — Halifax, NS
      Georgian College — Barrie, ON
      McMaster University — Hamilton, ON
      Queens University — Kingston, ON
      Ryerson University — Toronto, ON
      Seneca College — Toronto, ON
      Sheridan College — Oakville, ON
      Simon Fraser University — Burnaby, BC
      University of Calgary — Calgary
      University of Guelph — Guelph, ON
      University of New Brunswick — NB
      University of Ottawa — Ottawa, ON
      University of Toronto — Toronto, ON
      University of Waterloo — Waterloo,ON
      UOIT — Oshawa, ON
      Western University — London, ON
      Youth Science Canada

Long story short, the event was very successful. As one professor commented, “I found the summit to be extremely valuable… the first day’s talks were very informative, especially having some of the professors share their experiences… it provided a great opportunity to get an overview of the BlackBerry platform, and the hands-on session demonstrated how quickly we can have students create a mobile application from scratch in BlackBerry 10.”

As you know, QNX has deep experience in the embedded market. That, together with a long history of supporting academic research, makes the QNX in Education program an ideal complement to the BlackBerry Academic Program, which provides free curriculum resources and mobile hardware to qualified professors and instructors.

During the first day of the summit, QNX delivered a presentation on the history of the QNX in Education Program and on the various offerings that QNX makes available to academics, and consequently, to students. A demonstration of QNX-based reference designs was very well received. On day 2 of the event, QNX provided a hands-on training session focused on the reference designs.

Another successful cooperation between the QNX in Education and BlackBerry Academic programs since the BlackBerry student competition in China last year!

What are the 5 all-time most popular QNX videos?

Geez, I thought you'd never ask. Seriously, the question came to mind earlier this week, so I decided to find out. A quick trip to the QNX YouTube channel provided the answer.

What that trip didn't tell me is why these videos are the most popular. I can think of several reasons, but the most obvious is that the videos all hint at a future in which driving is more connected, more convenient, more enjoyable — and also a little safer. But don't take my word for it. Check out the videos, if you haven't already, and judge for yourself.

Without further ado, here are the top five, along with my favorite scene from each one.

First up, at more than 525,000 views, is Imagined: Your car in the not-so-distant future. Best part: the augmented reality-enhanced stop sign (1:10).

Next, at more than 230,000 views, is QNX seamless connectivity. Best part: John Wall speaking on the real challenge of making a connected car (:50).

Close behind #2, at more than 213,000 views, is The QNX secret to making hands-free noise-free. Best part: The marching band (1:21).

Next, at more than 85,000 views, is QNX HTML5 series - Interview with Pandora's Tom Conrad. Best part: It's all good, but I love the bloopers (3:00).

And last, at more than 34,000 views, is QNX technology concept car - Bentley Continental. Best part: the couches.

One that didn't make it...
And, finally, here's my current favorite. It's not one of the top five... yet. But I think it should be:

Some Delicious Schadenfreude

This is the guy who through Neal Rauhauser smeared me as a violent predator teaming up with Breitbart as part and parcel of some HB Gary, off-shoot, cybersnoop cell. Most of this has already been covered, notably in the patrick frey got it wrong entry.

BK shouldn't have done what he did to Aaron Walker. That is clear. A week or a few days ago, Aaron (Worthing) noticed new entries for Brett Kimberlin in the Maryland judicial system.

It's pretty wild stuff. Walker and Hoge or at least Hoge attended the hearing.

A great point is how BK complained about me that his children and wife shouldn't have to read my stuff which contained nothing but truth and good sources. Yet in a court room a day or so ago, Brett was apparently sharing salacious testimony with his children in the room. I know this is obscure stuff, but it's got some milieu juice left. I'm not even going to try to share details. You have to read it to believe it.

Adultery. African-American lover. I still think the real story is how come in Maryland someone like BK has the power to get people arrested, when they don't deserve it? How's he getting away with that so much? How come he is able to continue making criminal complaints that have no merit?

Remember, before me, and I suppose Trouble in Winter, this was very obfuscated.

In regards to Julia Scyphers, there wasn't much available info on that either. Man, it was an easy troll bust. I'm not saying otherwise. But no one else was on it. I knew how to work with google.

It wasn't necessarily all about Kimberlin. Though he will always be the big draw based on the Dan Quayle thingie and the Singer book. But this was about a Michael Connell hoax which included other semi-big names needing exposure.

I am proud to have scooped it. Keep in mind that Singer's schtick had already passed its 15 minutes of fame before the internet truly took off.

Just fish around,, and Hoge's website, I forget his address, for the dirt on Kimberlin's new legal troubles. Unlike their trollish parlor games with Grouch, this one appears to have legs.

It is pure schadenfreude for someone considered by many to have been behind the Breitbart UnMasked website before Grouchie took over.

What has the QNX auto team been up to?

Well, let's see...

What, you haven't read the latest issue of the QNX Source newsletter?

It always pays to get your information straight from the source. I'm speaking, of course, about the Source newsletter, which QNX publishes 10 times a year.

If you want to keep track of the latest QNX videos, webinars, whitepapers, press releases, product updates, and board support packages, subscribing to the Source is the way to go. But if your inbox is already crammed with too many newsletters, meeting requests, and advertisements for fake Rolexes, there is an alternative: you can bookmark your browser to the Source newsletter archive.

Here, for example, is a screen cap of part of the June edition, which is available now on the archive.

Solar Impulse plane completes final leg of cross-America trek

It has the wingspan of a Boeing 777, but weighs only as much as a family car. It has four propellers, but doesn’t sip an ounce of fuel. It's called the Solar Impulse, and it is the first plane designed to fly round the clock using only solar power.

In early May, the Solar Impulse took off from Mountain View, California on the first leg of its journey across America. Last night, it completed the trek, landing at New York's JFK Airport. In between, the plane made stopovers at Phoenix, Dallas, St. Louis, and Washington DC, allowing the Solar Impulse team to meet the public, show off the plane, and promote their vision of renewal energy. (In New York next weekend? If so, you're in luck: you can see the plane in person at JFK.)

Along the way, the plane set a new distance record for solar-powered flight: 1541 kilometers. The previous record was 1116 kilometers, set by — you guessed it — the Solar Impulse team.

QNX Software Systems is the official realtime OS partner for the Solar Impulse project, which uses QNX technology for several of the plane's control and data management functions. For more on the project and the people behind it, see the Solar Impulse website.

But before you go, check out this video, which starts off with some inspiring clips of the Solar Impulse in flight — followed by a cameo appearance by Larry Page wearing Google Glass.

Freeform Revolutionary Thinking

I wish I knew who drew this. It's crazy good.

Stop. Wait a second. No, this is not finished. Do not look away.
This is too important. It means something. It means everything.

Edward Snowden just sacrificed his life for all of us. He is not a traitor. He is a hero.

You read something incredibly wild. It's posted at Alex Jones' Prison Planet. You figure, "No way is that true. It must be a fabrication or taken way out of context."

I am simply saying go to the original source and decipher the truth for yourself. Apparently, the only way to fight the conspiracy is through conspiracy theory itself.

No matter what you come up with, you are going to have to confront the disturbing truth. Search engines will take you to the craziest of destinations.

The original Snowden was a gentleman named James Bamford. He wrote The Shadow Factory. He's the primary reason I often use the phrase spy factory. He's not a whistleblower, but he did uncover a lot of stuff as a mass media regular guy.

The big lie is that all this money is put into the M.I.C. (which includes the F.B.I. and it's internet cointelpro progam) to prevent future terrorist attacks on U.S soil. If you look into a lot of these cases, you will find many examples of FBI fabricated terrorism. People who would have never had anything to do with anybody were given the ideas and tools to then be arrested for this so-called terrorism. I'm sorry, but that is textbook entrapment. Police should not have the right to lie or otherwise falsely present themselves.

Brandon Darby did it to those two kids. He was their leader. He was the Arthur Fonzarelli of anarchists. They looked up to him for ideas.

There's a reason why there's widespread consensus Darby's a sewer rat. Thankfully, that troll has been thoroughly exposed and needs no further socratisation.

Hal Turner was also paid by the Corrupt FBI (not to be confused with Good Guy FBI) to "flush out crazies."

He too has been socratised enough.

Would you believe it, if I told you top military brass signed off on a plan to attack U.S. citizens as a precursor to invading Cuba? We know of this through Bamford. It was called Operation Northwoods. It incredibly made it all the way to JFK who responded, to paraphrase, "Nope, we're not gonna do that. Get out of town."

I'm not sure what exactly Johnny Camelot told the nazi-americans dressed up as joint chiefs of staff. If I had been JFK, I would have said, "You fricken lunatics! .... wtf???? Get the hell out of my oval shaped office right this second."

The whole Lee Harvey Oswald thing was very shady. Now we see some similarities forming with the Boston Marathon story. I'm not saying it was a false flag. I'm not that kooky. Nonetheless, there is good reason to believe the FBI might have created the older brother. Here are a couple links spelling out such a theory:

Was Tamerlan Tsarnaev a Double Agent Recruited by the FBI? By Peter Dale Scott on Jun 23, 2013

News – Was Tamerlan Tsarnaev an FBI Informant? 29 April 2013

Here's a typical mainstream article on the conspiracy theories.

Boston Marathon bombings: rounding up the conspiracy theories

I can neither confirm nor deny the following article.

Orwell does America By Pepe Escobar

Donkeytale knows this dude far better than me. I will say this. I am open-minded yet realise there are a lot of sources no one should touch with a ten foot pole. For those who are clueless, before you attempt to understand anything, please google primary and secondary sources. Thanks for your cooperation in this matter. This is extra-parliamentary power the ptb's cannot control unless you let them.

Putting the possible FBI informant/double agent schtick to the side, let's focus in on Craft International.

Remember the sniper dude Ron Paul trolled saying he lived and died by the sword? Craft was his baby.

Could someone explain why Craft working the marathon has not yet made mainstream news?

This is an amazing article by Dave Lindorff who got the run around when trying to get info on Craft International working Boston:

Craft International Services hired guns at the Boston Marathon: Why Such Secrecy about Private Military Contractor’s Men Working the Event?

So anyway, be patient, we can now segue to the good stuff. Starting here from The Boston Globe:

Police response training planned, but bombs hit first

The scenario had been carefully planned: A terrorist group prepared to hurt vast numbers of people around Boston would leave backpacks filled with explosives at Faneuil Hall, the Seaport District, and in other towns, spreading waves of panic and fear. Detectives would have to catch the culprits.

Months of painstaking planning had gone into the exercise, dubbed “Operation Urban Shield,” meant to train dozens of detectives in the Greater Boston area to work together to thwart a terrorist threat. The hypothetical terrorist group was even given a name: Free America Citizens, a home-grown cadre of militiamen whose logo would be a metal skull wearing an Uncle Sam hat and a furious expression, according to a copy of the plans obtained by the Boston Globe.

But two months before the training exercise was to take place, the city was hit with a real terrorist attack executed in a frighteningly similar fashion....
Hmmm. A metal skull for a logo.

While at Twitter, someone put up a provocative link to Prison Planet. I followed it to the original source.

FBI Document—“[DELETED]” Plots to Kill Occupy Leaders “If Deemed Necessary” By Dave Lindorff on Jun 27, 2013
(FBI declassified document) An identified [DELETED] as of October planned to engage in sniper attacks against protestors (sic) in Houston, Texas if deemed necessary. An identified [DELETED] had received intelligence that indicated the protesters in New York and Seattle planned similar protests in Houston, Dallas, San Antonio and Austin, Texas. [DELETED] planned to gather intelligence against the leaders of the protest groups and obtain photographs, then formulate a plan to kill the leadership via suppressed sniper rifles. (Note: protests continued throughout the weekend with approximately 6000 persons in NYC. ‘Occupy Wall Street’ protests have spread to about half of all states in the US, over a dozen European and Asian cities, including protests in Cleveland (10/6-8/11) at Willard Park which was initially attended by hundreds of protesters.)
That's pretty, sick stuff indeed. That sounds not so different from Operation Northwoods, which we know is conspiracy fact.

I think the reason Craft(?) or whomever has been deleted from the declassified info is because they are in essence on the FBI/DHS/NSA/BigBrother payroll. Picture Hal Turner's FBI connection times a million. This would make for some very terrifying schadenfreude.
