The CBT Nuggets Offline Player Arrives on Android

March 8, 2014 at 2:27 pm

Great news Android users, we are proud to announce an offline training feature for our Android app!*android-app_BLOG

This feature is available to annual subscribers.

To access it, you’ll first need to get the new CBT Nuggets app from the Google Play Store.

Here’s how it works:

1. Go to the desired course.

2. Click on the down arrow icon located to the right of the video title that you want to download.

3. Click the “download” button on the lower right. The selected videos will download to your device.

After a video has downloaded, you may watch it anytime, anywhere by going to the Offline Training page.

We suggest that you use a Wi-Fi connection to download videos to avoid data overuse fees. For this reason, your offline video settings are automatically set to use Wi-Fi only. However, if you want to use your cellular data, follow these instructions:

Go to Settings > Offline Training Settings and enable the “Use Cellular Data” option.

You can download up to 20 videos at a time. Once downloaded, videos are available offline for 30 days. Downloaded videos will expire after 30 days. To delete videos from your queue, click the “edit” button on the Offline Videos page. Select the videos you want to delete, and click the “delete” button at the bottom of the page.

For more information about using CBT Nuggets offline training, click on the info icon on the upper right of the offline training page.

*We are currently working on adding the offline training feature for a Chrome app. Next, we will focus on a Windows Phone app.

Trending in Tech for 2014

January 8, 2014 at 1:20 am

I read a great article in the Investors Business Daily speaking to the tech trends of 2014. I wanted to share the main points with my blog readers.

download

Trend 1 – spending shifting to the cloud. Companies will be investing more heavily in things like Amazon Web Services at the cost to more traditional hardware and service companies such as HP, Oracle, and IBM. Pricing battles will heat up for cloud services as companies like Google and Microsoft try and compete more aggressively with Amazon.

Trend 2 – a big year for tech IPOs. Mobile, social, cloud, and big data companies will follow the success of IPOs in 2013.

Trend 3 – the Internet of Things. Companies like Cisco, Intel, and Qualcomm will ramp up their push and support on the Internet of Things. This trend is about what my blog readers have known for a long time – that more and more devices will feature Internet connectivity. I think we will surely see more and more IPv6 in this area of course.

Trend 4 – software-defined anything. More and more, software is defining the way in which networking functions. The hardware is more and more dominated by software that virtualizes everything.

Trend 5 – old guard tech fights on. Long dominant tech giants like IBM, Cisco, Microsoft, and Oracle are continuing to struggle to adapt to cloud computing and software as a service. The giants will try and move fast enough to keep up with these sweeping changes.

Thanks for reading and I look forward to enjoying this amazing journey with you in 2014!
