Maine and New Brunswick called out their militias. The U.S. Congress promised to supply 50,000 additional troops and $10 million to protect the precious lumber. Happily, both sides quickly agreed to a compromise; Maine got 7,015 square miles of the disputed land, and New Brunswick 5,012 miles.
Meanwhile, Napster’s faithful are experimenting with other software to satisfy their file-sharing desires. The Nielsen/NetRatings study noted that alternatives to Napster are gaining popularity.
One of the web’s weirdest and most influential sites has been sold. Today 4chan founder Christopher “moot” Poole announced that the anonymous image sharing site 4chan, which he created when he was just 15, was acquired by Hiroyuki Nishimura. Nishimura is best known as the founder of the Japanese site 2channel—one of the original inspirations for 4chan. You can read our 2008 profile of Nishimura here. Poole stepped down as administrator of the site last January. Terms of the sale were not disclosed.
To satisfy FCC requirements for acceptable radiative energy in wireless devices, the iPad’s proximity sensor significantly reduces 3G data transmission power when the tablet is moved very close to one’s body. Pong’s cases for the iPad and the iPad 2 boast a cut-out over the area of the sensor to avoid triggering that automatic power curb, just as Pong states on its website.
The RATP hopes to increase its customer satisfaction. Already there are
1.516 billion annual rides taken on the Parisian transportation system, which includes Métro, bus, tram, and RER suburban rail. Millions are daily, loyal riders to the network, but the RATP would like to guarantee a certain “attitude de service.”

I’ve still got a long ways to go before I’ll finish the game, but it’s been a lot of fun so far, and I’m going to try to complete the game without staying up past my bedtime again…
One is to prove the “defendant’s distribution” of the hack. The other involves a jurisdictional argument over whether Sony must sue Hotz in his home state of New Jersey rather than in San Francisco, which Sony would prefer. Sony said the server logs would demonstrate that many of those who downloaded Hotz’s hack reside in Northern California – thus making San Francisco a proper venue for the case.
The engineers of Nest, of course, see their efforts as much more. And some of them don’t mind sounding hubristic at all. “I don’t know why I waited 20 years to work on something like this,” says Shige Honjo. “By making it easy for people to turn this on and off when they need it, we’re saving the environment. We’re saving the world.”
Working on the project with his wife, Johan von Konow generated the necessary shapes for the construction in CAD before using a 50-watt laser engraver to cut them out of a flat sheet of gingerbread.
Venu Govindaraju, director of the Center for Unified Biometrics and Sensors at the University at Buffalo, fears that if optical character recognition software isn’t developed for a particular language, “all the classic texts in that language will disappear into oblivion.”
“Big-box retailers are taking advantage of the shortage to entice customers to their stores,” says David Abrams, who runs the videogame deals site Cheap Ass Gamer. “If they expect to have Wii in stock, they will mention it in their weekly ads.”

So, the only way this is going to work is that we pay the expense of them cutting back. If all we do is set an example, the example we’ll have set is that once you’re a wealthy nation, you can cut back on CO2.
If that’s the example, they will wait until they are wealthy and then they’ll cut back and it’ll be too late.
Britain’s Orange and Vodafone Group, Spain’s Telefonica Moviles and Germany’s T-Mobile are behind the company that offers secure payments among merchants, cell phone users and banks.

Net income attributable to the company fell to $749 million, or 50 cents per share, in the second quarter ended March 31, from $1.16 billion, or 78 cents per share, a year earlier. (http://bit.ly/2ot17st)
But unlike Forde and Wu, Gupta is running in a district that Trump won, in a part of the country that has suffered economically while watching coastal tech epicenters amass unprecedented amounts of wealth. That makes the task of accentuating his experience in tech, without alienating voters who associate the industry with liberal elitism, tricky. “You have to be strategic about how you talk about yourself,” Gupta acknowledged at a recent fundraiser of about a dozen supporters, held at the LGBT Community Center in Manhattan. “If I’d gone out there and said, ‘Hey I’m this guy who understands tech, and I want to bring that here to the region,’ I don’t think I would win this election.”
Let Bostock—until recently a graphics editor at The New York Times—show you how he uses the web’s native languages to turn raw numbers into shapes, colors, graphs, charts, and maps.
The project was inspired when Epler, struggling to find a data set worthy of an ITP finals project, encountered an errant X-rated pop-up ad.
Still, some foreign workers are proceeding with caution, largely because some of them want to apply for permanent residency. That procedure takes several years, and being “out of status” for even a short period of time could be held against them by INS officials.
McDonnell, a 34-year-old history teacher from Fontana, California, paid close attention to detail: He mounted an Apple logo on the front of the radio and carefully cut a slot for the machine’s floppy drive in the side. He connected the computer’s speaker jacks to the radio’s original speaker. It provides “nice, rich sound,” he said.
In a worst case scenario, such services could lead to a Balkinzation of the internet, where innovative new services could be undermined by ISPs seeking to defend their turf from rivals. It is unclear what types of services ISPs might ultimately seek to build or block – however, video offerings that compete with cable, such as Apple’s newly announced Apple TV rental service, are considered a prime example.

Chris says: You don’t have to say it – we were late getting to this news. Blame the general chaos of trying to cover all of E3 with two writers. What a crazy situation.
“It’s difficult to make changes in the way we operate,” she said. “The last major changes to the (patent) law were in 1952. After that, there were changes in 1999.”
Along came the fake news stories and hyper-partisan websites that were more than happy to publish unrecognizable hyperbole and all-out lies. The stories didn’t have to be true—the public had already lost faith in the fact-checkers—they just had to confirm a certain subset of people’s existing beliefs. And if they did, people would share them. The more people shared them, the more Facebook would reward their publishers by prioritizing them in users’ news feeds. By August, one Buzzfeed analysis showed, fake news was increasingly outperforming the top stories at the 19 major news outlets.
“Many women do not realize that most regular cardiovascular screening tests should begin at age 20, and that knowing your personal health numbers helps you and your health care provider better determine your risk for developing future problems,” said Angela Patterson, Chief Nurse Practitioner Officer at CVS MinuteClinic.
And, Levin added, if H1N1 flu virus gets bad, the demand will grow even higher as “people commute by broadband” and schools set up ad-hoc video streams from elementary school classrooms to infected children at their homes.
And with Compuexpert’s WOW-Keys, you can whip that flabby iPhone back into shape. WOW-Keys is a full-sized QWERTY keyboard with a horizontal iPhone dock over where the number keys would usually be. And that’s the gimmick: While the keyboard is hooked up to your PC or Mac you can use the iPhone as an input device. With separate software (you’ll have to find some in the App Store) you can turn the iPhone into a numerical keypad, a multitouch trackpad, or pretty much anything that there’s an app for. And because the dock charges the iPhone, the batteries won’t go dead while you use it.
Citizen inventors with only modest technical expertise swap ideas with counterparts at other Fab Labs around the world by electronically sharing design blueprints or going to a Fab Lab website that offers project ideas.
Ultimately, Egypt elected a government run by the Muslim Brotherhood, a traditionalist political machine that had played little part in the initial Tahrir Square groundswell. Then in 2013 the military staged a successful coup. Soon thereafter, Ghonim moved to California, where he tried to set up a social media platform that would favor reason over outrage. But it was too hard to peel users away from Twitter and Facebook, and the project didn’t last long. Egypt’s military government, meanwhile, recently passed a law that allows it to wipe its critics off social media.
