Some things never change. In the 21st century Trojan horses are made of electronic “1s” and “0s” but are still left for you in all innocence and in plain sight: your e-mail inbox, in IMs and on a web page. But the intent, and the outcome, is pretty much the same: to pillage and steal.
I even assumed that the lack of female characters in my comics were the status quo, that they’d always been small in number because of the sexism of the times.
WIRED asks a group of seniors what they think about Amazon Echo. Can they stump our new favorite digital assistant, Alexa?
In this rural outpost, Gov. Angus King’s noble project has yet to reach its potential.
“Because the reproduction right is necessarily implicated when a copyrighted work is embodied in a new material object, and because digital music files must be embodied in a new material object following their transfer over the internet, the court determines that the embodiment of a digital music file on a new hard disk is a reproduction within the meaning of the Copyright Act.
It’s ingenious, and more flexible than Fairdale’s original design which comprised of a full rack with the skate carrier built in. Price and shipping date are not yet finalized.
Crowley tabs to a different part of the game, and dozens of first names and generic cartoon avatars pop up on the screen beneath the header “Brooklyn Roasting Company,” a real cafe on the first floor of the building we’re in. “Downstairs in the cafeteria there are 40 people,” Crowley says, thumbing through the list. “These are the people that are there. These are not their names. And this is not what they look like. These are [their unique advertising] IDs that we turned into a fake name and a fake avatar.”
The find was good news for Joseph Gutheinz, a Houston moon rock hunter who has dozens of his students at the University of Phoenix working on investigating the whereabouts of moon rocks gifted to countries and states after the Apollo 11 and Apollo 17 moon missions.
In 1983, for example, Falwell sued Hustler magazine when it published a cartoon satire in which the preacher bragged about having sex with his mother in an outhouse. A lower court awarded Falwell $200,000 for emotional distress, but the decision was overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court, which ruled that the cartoon was protected speech.
Seattle-based Onvia.com Inc is one of them. Today it has a 21 cent share price and a slim staff of one hundred. Two years ago, it was trading above $10 a share, had 650 workers, and an ambitious business plan to build a massive website linking businesses with office equipment vendors.
Thompson: Oh right. So there could be factors that are massively more important than trustworthy, right. They just have, like, better writers and editors over the last three months.
So I’m telling you now: You can’t stop runaway buses in their tracks, or douse spreading wildfires, or extinguish every gruesome tropical disease. When you’re picking items for your baby registry, pick stuff that is cool-looking, and helpful, and will save you time and energy. But as far as parenting goes, guarding against every distant threat is not the most important task.
Prior to the announcement, the company’s stock was already almost worthless. The stock closed Monday at 9 cents, a stupefying decline from its high point of the year, when eToys traded for nearly $16.
The Fitbit charges through a USB base station, but a recharge lasts for several days. Once you install the desktop software (available for both Macs and Windows), you shouldn’t normally have to think about syncing. The Fitbit device automatically attempts to wirelessly sync every 15 minutes, and it will also sync when you recharge.

In an email to WIRED, a spokesperson for Leaked Source says it received the data from an “underground source who wishes to stay anonymous,” but that it checked some of hacked credentials for a set of AdultFriendFinder accounts against previous leaks of data from a hacked password manager to verify that they were real. ZDNet also obtained a portion of the data and verified its authenticity by contacting affected users.
And state election officials have worked for months to improve election infrastructure defenses at both the state and local levels, prioritizing cybersecurity more than in past years. But that step has been hard won, given that researchers have warned about the dangers of insecure voting machines and other infrastructure components for more than a decade. And much of the recent progress—including basic improvements to cybersecurity hygiene on voter databases and election infrastructure networks—is just a first step. Larger projects, like replacing old, insecure voting machines and those that don’t produce a paper backup, or implementing robust audits to confirm electoral results, are still either nascent or nonexistent in most states.
I first noticed Jon Klassen’s illustrations in I Want My Hat Back, though I realized later that he was also the illustrator of a series of middle-grade books, The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place. He also created concept art for the Coraline film, although I suppose his artwork is less directly visible in that instance. His gouache-and-digital paintings tend to have mostly muted colors, giving everything some measure of gravitas, even in the service of very funny stories. The amount of detail in the illustrations is incredible, from leaves and blades of grass and specks of dirt to little stitches of yarn.
