  • Wireframe in UX Design – A Beginner’s Guide

    If you’re a UX designer then we want to ask a few simple questions to you…

    How would you decide the components or the elements in the navigation bar of your web pages?

    How would you decide that you need four-column grids or three-column grids on your web page?

    How would you decide on your mobile app that you need to choose a scrollable item or a fixed item of a fixed height?

    Where to put the images? Where to put the videos? Where to put the links? Where to list out the items?

    All the above questions need to be answered when you’re building an app. For a small and simple website, these things are clear and overlooked but for big companies such as Flipkart, Amazon, or Zomato these things can not be overlooked.

  • Google releases the source code for Lyra low bitrate speech codec

    Google showcased Lyra audio codec for high-quality voice calls at a low 3 kbps bitrate last February. But at the time, it was only for our eyes to see, or rather our ears to listen to, as the company did not release any software, but only audio samples with excellent quality compared to Speex @ 3 kbps or Opus @ 6 kbps.

    [...]

    The beta release provides the tools and APIs needed for Lyra encoding and decoding, and is currently optimized for the 64-bit Arm Android platform, but can also be run in Linux x86 64-bit.

    There is also an example app – lyra_android_example – that integrates with the Android NDK and offers a minimal GUI with two buttons to either record from the microphone and encode/decode with Lyra, or runs a benchmark that encodes and decodes in the background and prints the timings to logcat.

  • Quic: the Elephant in the Room

    I've stressed throughout this that a Google-like company could take this into their own hands and just implement it without buy in from anybody. That was what made Quic possible in the first place since anything else than that is beating up against an ossified and sclerotic industry. Indeed the Certificate Industrial Complex would completely lose their shit as their gravy train is shut down. Given DANE and DKIM, the use of DNS to authorize public keys for use elsewhere is well understood and should be completely safe given DNSSec, and arguably safer given that there are far fewer middle men CA's involved to screw up.

  • How to Install or Enable Cockpit on AlmaLinux 8 - Linux Shout

    The Cockpit on AlmaLinux is a server management platform that allows administrators to easily manage and control their GUI or CLI Linux server systems remotely using a browser. Among other things, admins can take a look at the systemd journal, check the load or start and stop services. It has a responsive design thus we can also use it conveniently on tablet s and smartphones. We can monitor our remote server performance using just a browser without actually having physical access to it. Furthermore, we can also access the command shell with root access to issue commands and install various packages over the server remotely. Since AlmaLinux 8 is based on RHEL just like CentOS 8, this means by default out of the box, the Cockpit is already installed on your system. Just we need to enable it.
