Amazon Brings Social Reading to Kindle – But Will You Use It?

first_imgWill You Use Kindle Profiles?One issue I had when playing with my Kindle Profile was that much of my data was out-of-date. Goodreads is my social reading service of choice and there is significantly more of my reading data in Goodreads than on my Amazon profile. There appears to be no way to sync the two. Since I don’t feel inclined to keep two separate social reading services up-to-date, it’s likely that I’ll stick with Goodreads – since I enjoy that community and I have over three years worth of reading data there.Overall, it’s great to see Amazon making Kindle profiles social. Granted, it’s far from perfect. The interface is a bit confusing, especially the different private and public profiles. There is also a lot more social connectivity that Amazon could enable, for example allowing you to send highlights automatically from your Kindle to Twitter, Facebook or even Google Plus. However, the interface and additional social features will evolve over time. This is a good start by Amazon. Now the big question is: will you use it? As noted above, I’m inclined to stick with Goodreads for now. You? Secondly, you can connect your Kindle Profile to your Twitter and Facebook accounts. As noted above, this causes the system to auto-follow users in your social networks who have a Kindle Profile, too. You can also manually follow users – here is my public profile if you’re interested.There is an option to auto-share your reading activity to Twitter or Facebook. Again the default is private, but Amazon puts the public option front and center. This only applies to the status of a public book, so it doesn’t apply to books marked private or to Kindle highlights and notes. Your private Kindle Profile comes in a handy ‘homepage’ like package, offering features such as a “Daily Review” (selected highlights from your reading), recent activity, popular highlights, stats and “highly followed people” (featuring the usual social media suspects, e.g. Kevin Rose and Seth Godin). Tags:#Amazon#E-Books#NYT#web Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting How Your Kindle Profile Differs From Your Amazon ProfileAt a high level, your Kindle Profile is focused on reading and your Amazon profile is focused on buying. Specifically, there are two main differences between your Kindle Profile and your Amazon Profile.Firstly, Kindle Profile makes available your Kindle highlights and notes. Highlights are passages in a book that you literally highlight for later viewing. Notes are your own custom notations inside a book, much like scribbling in the margins of a paper book. Both highlights and notes are private by default, but you can make them public on a book-by-book basis. richard macmanuscenter_img Kindle Profiles is a social service that was quietly launched by Amazon in March of this year. Its existence was little known, probably because it wasn’t very useful as a social tool until Amazon recently added connections to Twitter and Facebook. I myself only discovered the service after VC Fred Wilson blogged about it the over the weekend. Kindle Profiles appears to be gaining some early traction now, thanks largely to Kindle Profile users auto-following people in their Twitter and Facebook networks. As Wired pointed out, this is a somewhat dodgy tactic, because the user cannot turn off this auto-follow behavior.Regardless, what’s of most interest to me is how Amazon is actively trialing a social reading service connected to the Kindle brand. While Amazon owns the social reading service Shelfari, which it acquired three years ago, it hasn’t integrated Shelfari in a deep way into Kindle. In this post, we review the features of Kindle Profiles and ask whether you’d want to use this over competing services like Goodreads or Library Thing.Private & Public ProfilesKindle Profiles comes in both private and public flavors. The private one, as you’d expect, has much more in it. But as Facebook has done over the past couple of years with its initially private service, over time Amazon will likely prompt and tease you to make your private content public.Kindle Profiles isn’t even the official name for this service. In its inimitably clumsy branding way, Amazon calls it “Kindle.amazon.com.” The service aims to augment the reading experience by “bringing readers together and by helping them to learn more from the books that they read.” In other words: it’s social. You can follow people “to see their Public Notes and reading activities, and review your books, highlights, and notes.”The private profile lists out your Kindle booklist, which it gets from your Amazon profile (both purchased books and ones on your Wish List). Each book has a reading status and rating, which is populated from your Amazon profile if available.

Flickr Nails Photo Privacy With New Geofence Feature

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Tags:#Location#NYT#web Related Posts The Flickr implementation of this feature lets you search for a spot on a map, then determine how big the area you want to refer to is, set the particular privacy setting for that zone apart from your account-wide default setting, then name the geofenced area. You can then choose whether or not to apply this new privacy setting to all the photos you’ve uploaded from that location in the past. Update: As commenters graciously pointed out, I misunderstood this announcement a bit – it’s actually the location of the photo that is subjected to a new privacy setting, not the photo itself. Good to know, effect is similar but a little different. I thought this was like Google Plus or Facebook privacy settings – it turns out it’s not quite the same. Flickr says it has 300 million geotagged photos uploaded to its databases already. This is the kind of feature that could really help more people feel comfortable geotagging their photos. Facebook really ought to enable this feature as well. Right: Where did I eat this wonderful dinner of grilled asparagus with shallot pepper and salmon? None of your business, unless you’re a member of my friends and family group!Heck, Twitter and everyone else ought to do this. I don’t geotag my Tweets because so many of them are posted from home and my exact address gets transmitted to all my followers. Dear Twitter, would you please set up a feature like this and let me draw circles within which I would like my location obscured to the neighborhood level? Please? Almost two years since launching, Twitter’s location feature has been a big disappointment relative to its potential and I can’t help but think that the lack of clear controls for users is a big part of that.There was a time when concepts like this might have felt super-geeky, or not of general interest to a lot of people. With the rise of smartphones and the growing sophistication of users, I think that time may well have passed.You can visit this page on Flickr to try setting up some geofences for yourself. The official announcement just went up here. A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Flickr will announce a new feature this morning called Geofences, forward- and backward-looking place-specific privacy settings for the location data of the geotagged photos you upload. The feature is live right now and is really well implemented – this is something that every social network ought to enable.Geofencing is a term typically used to refer to the drawing of a line on a map where some kind of pre-determined action is triggered, it’s most established in the business of transporting goods in trucks and triggering tracking actions when those trucks enter into certain geographic zones. Flickr’s new privacy geofences are something everyone is likely to enjoy using though. I, for example, have already set up a geofence around my house prohibiting anyone but my approved contacts from seeing the photos I upload from home. Thanks, Flickr! Update: Turns out I got that wrong, the photos are subject to my previous privacy setting – it’s just the location of my house that’s now more private due to the geofence. That’s cool too! marshall kirkpatrick Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…last_img read more


Ohio ~ Personal Income Tax, Practice and Procedure: Dividend Paid to S Corporation Shareholders from Earnings Attributable to Its C Corporation Days Qualified for Nonresident Tax Credit

first_imgCCH Tax Day ReportIndividual income taxpayers who were co-owners through grantor trusts of an S corporation that was previously a C corporation, were allowed to claim an Ohio nonresident tax credit in relation to dividend income it received from previously accrued C corporation earnings because the dividend constituted nonbusiness income allocable to Missouri, the taxpayer’s place of domicile. As per the applicable statute, nonresident taxpayers are allowed a credit against the Ohio tax due for that portion of Ohio adjusted gross income that is not allocable or apportionable to Ohio under the allocation and apportionment provisions. Further, nonresidents’ “dividends and distributions” are not allocable to Ohio unless their domicile is in Ohio at the time the income is paid or accrued. A distribution of earnings and profits that accrue to a C corporation that later becomes an S corporation that is in excess of the accumulated adjustments account is generally treated as a dividend to the extent of the corporation’s accumulated earnings and profits from its C corporation days. In the present case, the dividend was nonbusiness income, as there is a distinction between the event triggering income tax liability (declaration of the dividend) and the event triggering the taxpayers’ liability as S-corporation shareholders when they report their distributive share of the corporation’s current income on their individual income tax return (accrual of income by virtue of the corporation’s business activity). The tax commissioner erred in treating the taxpayers’ dividend the same as a distributive share of the S corporation’s current income. Accordingly, the tax commissioner’s assessment in relation to the amount of credit associated with the dividend was reversed.Giddens v. Testa, Ohio Supreme Court, No. 2014-2012, December 28, 2016, ¶404-584last_img read more


Cancelo: ‘Walker above and beyond’

Visit: https://subscribe.premiersports.tv/ Joao Cancelo thanked Kyle Walker for “going above and beyond for the team” by taking the gloves in a 1-1 draw with Atalanta, but felt Manchester City were hard done by. With Ederson injured in the first half and Claudio Bravo sent off for taking down Josip Ilicic, Walker had to go in goal. “Going in goal is not my speciality! Kyle Walker showed a great attitude and he really went above and beyond for the team,” Cancelo told Sky Sport Italia. “It was a difficult moment, we needed someone to step up and Kyle did very well. After seeing the VAR, I think it’s impossible that the red card was given, because he didn’t touch Ilicic at all. This is not fair. “It was a deserved point, we are top of the group, have two games left and will try to do our best.” After his experiences in Serie A, how is Joao Cancelo finding his first season at Manchester City? “I am learning a lot with this coach, who I feel is the best in the world. I came here to work with Pep Guardiola and become the best.”last_img read more

Ohio States Goebel bashfully steps into captaincy spotlight

An admittedly shy Garrett Goebel blushed when first-year Ohio State coach Urban Meyer announced him as one of five captains to lead the Buckeyes this fall. “I walked out there and my face got red,” the fifth-year senior said bashfully. For Goebel, the attention – the mere notion of interest ­­­­- is arguably a novelty. So is dealing with reporters, photographers and the hot lights from camera crews trying to get their scoop. And to the casual fan, the veteran 6-foot-4, 290-pound defensive lineman is, in all likelihood, a new face. While Goebel has made 44 tackles in 39 games for the Buckeyes, he’s managed to effectively fly under the radar in Columbus since arriving to campus in 2008. Now, such potential for innocuity seems to have evaporated as his honor as a captain has vaulted the Villa Park, Ill., native into the frenzy surrounding Meyer’s inaugural season at OSU. The lack of stardom isn’t something that often crosses Goebel’s mind, though. “I never really thought about it. I know I was never really too concerned. I just wanted to go out there and play good football,” he said. “I really don’t care too much about myself or being recognized or anything like that.” In fact, the active pursuit of being a captain, he said, wasn’t necessarily his aim. “I mean, I never really thought about it too much. Like, if it happens, it happens – it’s an honor. If it doesn’t, I’m not gonna get my head down or anything, you know, I’m still gonna go out there, work as hard as I can and lead,” Goebel said. “But it was just cool knowing that my teammates, you know, thought that highly of me.” In such a leadership role, Goebel automatically becomes an identifiable name for the Buckeyes – regardless of how much he likes the commotion around it all. And while some might wonder how a player with such a reserved disposition is best fit to lead, Goebel said his leadership is best demonstrated with his play, not his words. “I certainly say that I lead more by example but, you know, I still say stuff to people and, you know, make sure everyone knows what they’re doing and get everyone lined up,” he said. His content with being in the background, though, almost made him invisible to Meyer when he took over the OSU job in November. “I think I made the comment, I didn’t know Garrett. In the first four months I was here, he was just kind of a quiet guy that, you know, doesn’t look real good when we’re running around cones,” Meyer said at a Monday evening press conference. Meyer told reporters that the big man grew on him over time, though. Goebel said giving it his all day-in and day-out, especially during winter strength and conditioning drills, drew the attention of the former Florida coach. “I just worked as hard as I could every day – every day come in no matter what and just give it everything I had and do my best and I think he definitely appreciates guys that go hard all the time,” he said. Interesting enough, it seems that Goebel’s introverted, modest demeanor is nearly a perfect fit for the position he plays for the Buckeyes. Listed as the Buckeyes’ starter at nose tackle – arguably one of the most thankless positions in all of sports – Goebel is, and will be, responsible for doing what junior defensive tackle Johnathan “Big Hank” Hankins calls the “dirty work” for OSU’s “Silver Bullet” defense. “He’s probably one of the biggest pieces on our defense. He does all the dirty work, he takes up all the double teams – even though I take up double teams – but he does more of the dirty work,” Hankins said. “He’s a great leader for us, without him I feel like we would probably be kind of, like, out of shape because he basically knows the defense and he’s smart and he knows the play.” Similarly, redshirt senior linebacker Etienne Sabino said Goebel’s position is often unfairly unappreciated. “He’s our nose guard … He doesn’t get the credit he deserves, but he’s actually a very, very good player; for anybody who really knows football and watches him play, he’s actually a very, very good player,” he said. “Taking on 600 pounds every play is not an easy task, by no means, and he does a great job at that.” Despite Goebel’s low-key nature, Hankins said he knew his teammate would be a captain from the get-go, though. “Oh, I already knew he was going to become a captain. Since this year started, he took a leadership role and he just, you know I’m saying, worked hard, and I always looked up to him, watching film and learning from him,” he said. Sabino, who was also named a captain for 2012, said neither he nor the team was particularly surprised when Goebel’s name was called. “I think it’s probably more of a surprise to the media and everybody outside of the team, but Garrett comes to work everyday,” Sabino said. “He’s one of those players you know he’s going to do his assignment, it doesn’t matter whether it’s period one or period 40, he’s going to give it all he has. And you know, you’re going to get that regardless of the circumstances.”  That admiration, however, wasn’t just limited to Goebel’s teammates. Former OSU head coach and current defensive coordinator and linebackers coach Luke Fickell said Goebel is “that unsung hero.” “I’m just so happy that Coach (Meyer) really points it out. I think (Goebel’s) really grown on him,” Fickell said. “He sees what we try to do as a defense and what we ask that guy sometimes to do and, you know, it doesn’t come up in the stat sheet and you guys might not interview him a whole lot … but he is definitely one of the center points of the defense.” Fickell, who was a nose tackle for the Buckeyes from 1993-1996, seemed to understand the magnitude of Goebel’s honor. “To be named captain, I think – what an unbelievable feat,” Fickell said. For Goebel, it’s still a feat, though, that he didn’t entirely see coming. “My goal was to do everything I can and really didn’t think about it if everything worked out,” he said. “I mean, yeah, it would definitely be cool, but I really wasn’t thinking about it – I was thinking about just giving everything I had and just trying to lead the best I can.” read more


Womens Basketball Sierra Calhoun and Makayla Waterman to return to Ohio State

Ohio State redshirt junior guard Sierra Calhoun (4) drives to the basket in the fourth quarter of the Buckeyes’ semifinal game against Rutgers on March 2 at Banker’s Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. Ohio State beat Rutgers 82-57. Credit: Alyssia Graves | Assistant Sports DirectorNot only will the Ohio State women’s basketball team be without senior guard Kelsey Mitchell next season, but it will also lose four other key contributors to graduation in forwards Stephanie Mavunga and Alexa Hart, and guards Linnae Harper and Asia Doss.Luckily for the Buckeyes, redshirt junior guard Sierra Calhoun and redshirt junior forward Makayla Waterman both said they will be returning to Ohio State for the 2018-19 season. “I’m going to stay here for my fifth year,” Waterman said after her team’s loss to Central Michigan in the NCAA tournament. “I’ve got a lot of things like studying abroad, going on service trips this summer with the university.”Never a primary scorer, Waterman served as a facilitating forward this season. She averaged just 3.5 points and 3.9 rebounds across 18.2 minutes per game in 32 games. Next season, she will be counted on to take a larger offensive role with the loss of Mavunga, the team’s top frontcourt scoring threat.Calhoun also affirmed her intention to return next season after the loss to the Chippewas, answering with a simple “yes” before the question was even completed.Starting in all 34 of the Buckeyes’ games this season, Calhoun scored 11.8 points per game, the fourth-most on the team. She was a primary ball-handler at times, taking the pressure off Mitchell, and often took the role as a sharpshooter. She shot 37.4 percent from the field, while making 35.8 percent of her 3-point attempts this season.Calhoun said she anticipates and is looking forward to becoming more of a scoring threat with Ohio State’s three leading scorers — Mitchell, Mavunga and Harper — leaving the program.Ohio State redshirt junior forward Makayla Waterman defends Central Michigan forward Reyna Frost during the first quarter of the Buckeyes’ 95-78 loss to the Chippewas on March 19 at St. John Arena. Credit: Colin Hass-Hill | Sports EditorGiven the youth of next season’s team, Waterman and Calhoun must take larger leadership roles, which Calhoun believes will not be too much different to their roles this season despite the loss of the five seniors.“We will see,” Calhoun said with a laugh. “I feel like we were still leaders this year. I feel like we were one of the older kids this year, so we definitely had to lead by example and talk, things like that. Hopefully that will translate to next year.”Waterman and Calhoun will be joined next season by sophomore guard Jensen Caretti, who averaged 8.7 minutes and 2.4 points in 29 games. A former highly regarded recruit, Caretti will almost assuredly move into a starting role next season despite her lack of experience. Next year, the Buckeyes will add Najah Queenland, a transfer from Pacific who sat out this season and will be in her fourth collegiate season. In 2016-17, her final season at Pacific, she averaged 4.8 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 22.1 minutes per game. With Harper, Mitchell and Doss graduating, the 5-foot-10 Queenland could fill the role as a primary ball-handler. Ohio State will also add a crop of freshmen. It has three 2018 prospects — four-star guard Janai Crooms, three-star post Aaliyah Patty and four-star Hungarian forward Dorka Juhasz — committed to the program. Despite lacking collegiate experience, the trio could have an impact on the team given the graduations.Redshirt junior guard Chelsea Mitchell, the sister of Kelsey, took the semester off to focus on academics and her status on next season’s team is unclear. Former walk-ons Savitha Jayaraman and Karlie Cronin will return, but neither are expected to have major upticks in their responsibilities.Waterman said she and Calhoun have often looked ahead to next year and thought about being the team’s only seniors with a vastly different roster composition.“We talk about that all the time too,” Waterman said. “It’s going to be weird. We’re going to be the oldest ones on the team.”Not only will it be weird for Waterman, but the Buckeyes will once again be dealing with a smaller-than-usual roster. If Ohio State does not add any transfers or recruits for next season and Chelsea Mitchell returns, it will have just 10 players. And without Kelsey Mitchell, Mavunga, Doss, Harper and Hart, the Buckeyes might be in for a tough rebuilding year. read more

You find another yard in training and want to impress. That invigorates the squad, and Tottenham didn’t have that this year. If you are not buying anyone you are standing still in football terms.”“Everybody you are playing against will have gone out and spent. They have taken a chance to be better and you’re not. That interview was borne out of frustration. He knows he is short and it’s another ‘Groundhog Day’ season.”“It will be like last season and the one before.
