Thankfully, scientists have an explanation for why people hear different things when they listen to the recording. A number of academics chimed in to explain the phenomenon on Twitter. They said that the clip is an “ambiguous figure,” or as one auditory neuroscientist explained it to The Verge1, the audio version of “Rubin’s Vase,” an optical illusion where two people’s profiles can also be seen as a flower vase. In other words, it’s an optical illusion, except for your ears. There’s not really a correct answer either way. The reason that the recording is so contested is likely because it’s noisy, meaning there are lots of different frequencies captured. What you hear depends on which frequencies your brain emphasizes.
My search around the SF Auto Show brought me to Subaru to check out its wagons. I spent more than an hour looking at the Legacy, Outback and Impreza models that have earned stellar marks in NHTSA’s crash test ratings.
WIRED: What made you feel that – just like you were saying a couple years ago that Facebook should be “mobile first” – the company should eventually be “virtually reality first”?
Besides Sabu’s rampant snitching and informing on this old friends, the Anonops IRC network has been hacked and rooted. Great news all around.
In the Spring, the kids went over to the Siena campus to work on robot design and programming. Since it would be a beginner’s camp, example robots and code would be provided for the students. The four kids also put up a website where all of the information for camp was held. The boy’s story was called New World, and the girls’ The Geek, The Rat and The Underwater Dome. They took photos and screenshots, illustrated scenes, even made videos to help the campers. Michele scheduled four camps: two for each story. The first group would be a test camp, which the four designers could adjust what didn’t work in time for the next group.
Spiro says that in their research, they actually found that people across the country are becoming more open to local food. Good Eggs already has plans to expand its service to Detroit, Los Angeles, Brooklyn, and yes, Portland. Right now, all of the vendors on Good Eggs have worked directly with the company to get listed on the site. Spiro says that they look for “food that’s produced with integrity,” though he admits that it’s hard to define. Mainly, Good Eggs lists vendors that make food in relatively small batches, don’t use antibiotics, are largely organic, and cater to their own specific neighborhoods.
It will be Intel’s first dual-core processor, with two microprocessors on one chip to speed up the crunching of computer commands.
“You take the 2,300 we have to pay to Telefónica and you’re left with 450 to cover the other costs,” said Arturo Pina, a director with Ya.com, an ISP affiliated with T-Online. “That’s not very profitable.”
One of the documents is titled “Study Group 3, LGX/Splitter Wiring, San Francisco,” and is dated 2002. The others are allegedly a design document instructing technicians how to wire up the taps, and a document that describes the equipment installed in the secret room.
That might sound like a niche operation. But at the moment, this kind of subscription service is all the rage. Everyone from Birch Box and Dollar Shave Club to Blue Apron is giving it a go. It’s an old idea made new by the internet, and many see it as a better way to bring retail to the world, to make it more automatic while still giving people what they want. Cratejoy, which officially launched its service this month, aims to make life easier for this growing group of businesses.
“I can definitely say it’s not for everyone,” said Ben Sookying, director of network security services for the California State University’s 23-campus system and another student in this week’s class. “If you don’t have discipline, you won’t make it through this course.”
A day later, the thread vanished without explanation. And, since this is the internet, a new thread sprang up, outraged. “I was dismayed to realize that the entire very thoughtful and I thought very respectful thread about how to explain the election results to our children, has been removed, and is no longer available online,” a mom wrote. Another said she’d been a member for 10 years but was now considering leaving the group.
This media-rich phenomenon poses interesting implications for business and society, as well as our personal lives, Bilton says in his book. Wired.com invited Bilton to join us for a one-on-one interview to tell us his story, and here’s how it went.
