Compassionate Technology Company Featured on Award Winning Show

Boca Raton FL, May 30, 2014 – Big data is a popular buzz word in the business world today, but how are companies storing and processing that data? In an in-depth interview with Michael Sandoval, Founder and CEO of  Atigeo, 21st Century Television reveals the process and importance of intelligent big data processing.  The Atigeo feature story will air on the Fox Business Network (as pd. prog) on May 31, 2014 at 4:30pm EST.

Atigeo, refers to itself as  “a compassionate technology company turning science into products and services for a wiser world”. Their innovation and key differentiator is xPatterns, an intelligent big data platform that was created to lower the barrier to working with big data in real time, no matter how diverse and voluminous it may be. The unique way xPatterns rapidly associates concepts in even the most complex, disparate data volumes produces actionable intelligence, revealing unforeseen connections and insights for any industry.

“Today’s businesses store more data in a few days than all the data stored in the last century,” says Sandoval. “Rather than have hundreds of employee hours spend in data compilation, entry and analytics, the Atigeo software is designed to change the business logging traditions of the past few decades to streamline the process.”

As the first to offer a 360×360 degree platform, Atigeo software analyzes all data and generates an optimal solution without human interaction, finding patterns throughout the data.

“So many companies are still using an old 20th century system for gathering, entering and storing data,” notes J.L. Haber, Vice President of Programming for 21st Century Television. “There is just too much information that needs to be stored and readily available to continue in this outdated approach and we see Atigeo forging a clear path to the software solutions of the future.”

Google lauches privacy page for EU

Google has launched its Rights to Be Forgotten page on Friday, where the residents of the European Union can request that the links to information displayed about them be removed from search results.Google, Motorola

The web page has been launched by the search engine giants just 18 days after Europe’s high court ruled that under the European privacy laws, the individuals have the right to request search engines to remove links to information about them that is “inadequater, irrelevant or no longer relevant, or exessive in relation to the purposes for which they were processed.”

The experts have said that Google’s response was “impressively promt and practical.” The web form allows Europeans to submit requests that information about them can be de-indexed from Google’s search listings.

The form is so user friendly that the experts think that it might be overloaded with those wishing to be forgotten or wanting to stop information that is not relevant to be displayed. The experts have said page might face a tough time withstanding the pressure of the number of applicants and hits it will receive.

Google processes an estimated 90% of searches in Europe. It said it would assess each request and attempt to balance “the privacy rights of the individual with the public’s right to know and distribute information.”

 

IDC predicts tablet sales will fall in 2014

The rise fo the phone/tablet hybrids and the consumer’s willingness to continue using their current devices has had a negative impact on the tablet market and the research firm IDC has said that the market is expected to slow down in 2014.Tablet_Group_test_206PCA_206_Photoshoot-212

The forecasts for the global tablet shipments in 2014 has dropped to 245.4 million, as compared to the expected forecast of 260.9 million. The overall tablet shipment are expected to jump 12% for the year which is much lower than the 51% year over year surge the tablet market saw in 2013.

“The rise of phablets are causing many people to second-guess tablet purchases as the larger screens on these phones are often adequate for tasks once reserved for tablets,” IDC analyst Tom Mainelli. Mainelli says that the new smartphones with larger screens are playing major role in the tablet slowdown. “The shift back toward larger screens will mark a welcome sea change for most vendors as the average selling price for these devices will remain roughly 50 percent higher than the average sub-8-inch device.”

The consumers are also willing to hang on to older tablets a lot longer than the market experts had anticipated. According to the experts when those consumer do upgrade, they pass off their older devices to potential new tablet buyers.

L.A. sues JPMorgan Chase over foreclosures

The city attoney’s lawsuit, which was filed on Friday in the Federal court, states that the bank gave black and Latino money borrowers’ predatory home loans that the individuals could not afford. The lending of such high amounts lead to foreclosures when the housing bubble burst and the individuals who were involved in the lending were denied any refinancing.

JPMorgan has said that the bank is disappointed that the city attorney is taking, in what the bank calls “adversarial approach” to the problems that were caused by an economic slowdown and the circumstances and the situation was not under the banks control.

The city attorney had also filed a similar lawsuit in December against the Bank of America, Wells Fargo and Citigroup. All the banks that are involved in the lawsuit have denied the allegations against the banks and have stated that the situation of the economic crisis was not under their control and could not have done anything to avoid it.

SpaceX has already shown that the company can deliver supplies to the International Space Station with it unmanned spaceship, which is under contract to NASA.

The consumer spending, which credits to almost 70% of the overall economic activity, had fallen 0.1% in the month of April, the reports released by Commerce Department stated on Friday. The drop was the first time the consumer spending saw a decline in the past 12 months. The drop followed a 1% surge in spending in March, which marked the biggest increase in consumer spending in more than four years.

“It is obvious that after an unseasonably colder January and February consumers came out with a vengeance in March,” Chris Christopher, an economist at IHS Global Insight, said in a note to clients. “So, April’s poor showing on the spending front is payback for a strong March.”

The report released by the Commerce Department also show that the income rose 0.3% for the month of April after the income increased by 0.5% in March. That market the fourth consecutive monthly climb in income. The economy has been generating jobs at a good pace in past months, which included a gain 288,000 jobs in Aprl.

According to the reports released on late Friday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Securities Exchange Commission are investigating whether Mickelson and Walters were involved in illegally trading on non-public information that the two had allegedly obtained from Icahn about the investments in public companies.

The feds have said that they are investigating whether the past three year Icahn had illegally provided Walters, who is well known in Las Vegas for his sports betting abilities, about some potentially market-moving investments that were to be made by Icahn’s company, Icahn Enterprises.

All three men under investigation have said that they do not possess any knowledge of the probe and are declining to comment on the case. “We do not know of any investigation,” Mr. Icahn told the Journal Friday. “We are always very careful to observe all legal requirements in all of our activities.” The suggestion that he was involved in improper trading, he said, was “inflammatory and speculative.”
