The IT List: What You Missed This Week on InformIT [7/19/2013] 

  1. Bad Connection Blues:  Ever had a slow or broken connection from your phone, web browser, or email program? The problem could be your network connection, the remote server, or many things in between. Badly designed reconnection systems create poor user experiences -- repeat messages at high speed, battery drain, lagging network resources, and general delays. Dhanji R. Prasanna presents a solution to streamline this expensive back-and-forth exchange, reducing users' frustration level and debilitating strain on your servers.
