If you’re headed to Comic-Con this year, by the time you see this post you’ll already be standing in line for Hall H waiting to see something completely awesome. But while you’re waiting out there with hundreds of your closest friends, here’s a little reading material to help you plan the weekend.
In the web of the future the main concern won’t just be how fast a site loads, but how well it safeguards you and protects your data once it does load.
Wright suggested Congress should create a digital version of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, which holds company’s responsible for truthful public disclosures and protects shareholders from accounting errors and fraudulent practices in businesses.
That confusion and frustration led to today, where Yahoo’s new head of products Blake Irving, a Microsoft veteran just 100 days into his tenure at Yahoo, tried to explain to reporters what Yahoo is, what products it plans to release this fall, and how it plans to release changes faster.

“If a stink arises from airlines selling this data, you can buy the list, but there is no value,” said Henry Harteveldt, Forrester Research‘s principal travel industry analyst. “Instead, there is a huge, negative public relations problem.”
“I’m hoping this event will bring together a lot of people who might have the solution but don’t realize it,” said Tom Voigt, a Web designer in Portland, Oregon, who runs zodiackiller.com. “This case will be solved by the public, not the police.”
Apple CEO Tim Cook was responsible for managing and scaling Apple’s sprawling supply chain under Steve Jobs. That’s his strength and one of the reasons for the company’s nearly flawless operational execution, in spite of its enormous size. I don’t know who Samsung’s “Tim Cook” is, but it doesn’t appear to be Koh.
The museum opened Sept. 9, 1954, and one of the first exhibits to open was the “Hall of Immortals,” 12 looming statues that depict the great contributors to the surgical sciences.
Previously, for example, teaching students about inner ear anatomy meant carving up a corpse’s ear. Calgary’s new VR system allows researchers to simulate and study an ear without ever touching a human body.
His legal team argued that Goldstein’s anticensorship screeds had redeeming social value and were, as such, protected under the Constitution as political speech. Even Goldstein found that a ridiculous defense, maintaining that a reader’s erection “is its own redeeming value.” Three years, one guilty verdict, one successful appeal, and one hung jury later, Goldstein’s company paid a $30,000 fine in exchange for having all the charges dropped.
The conversation about Anonymous points to this trickster nature, veering between praise and fear, with the media at a loss for even how to describe them.
Fincham certainly knows Slater well now: He eventually became a cofounder of the Kelly Slater Wave Co. According to Fincham, though, this man-made wave almost didn’t happen at all. When Slater first proposed the idea to the engineers at USC, he had envisioned a circular wave pool. “He wanted the perfect wave, but he also wanted an infinite wave. The idea was that the wave would go around in a never-ending ring,” Fincham says. “That was his initial vision.” (WIRED requested an interview with Slater several times, but his spokesperson said the surfer was unavailable due to his responsibilities in hurricane-stricken Hawaii.)
What can you really learn from 500 miles above Earth? Quite a lot, it turns out. Already, our limited commercial services for satellite imaging are providing crucial data to companies, scientists, and governments. —Sara Breselor

Non-WebKit browser vendors first started talking about implementing the
-webkit prefix earlier this year during a CSS Working Group meeting. Microsoft, Mozilla and Opera all said they felt the need to support

America has a new president who is, how should we say, unpredictable. There’s no telling how the NSA and the surveillance state will evolve in the next four years. So, if you’re worried about keeping your private communications private, here’s what to do.
That extra feedback makes driving on track a bit easier, in my opinion. As a driver, you get a lot of information through the steering wheel, but you get just as much through the seat of your pants. Being strapped in much more tightly than you would in a road car further amplifies the feeling of being able to sense what the car is doing by its attitude. I put the matter to my co-drivers to get their take on it.
“If I tap your arm, you must put it behind your back,” Obishawn explains. “If you strike my leg, I must hop about without it.”
And, although the current statement is better, it still includes a tone that follows this logic:
RBC analyst Mitch Steves said in a research note that while the price for AppDynamics “appears to be high,” he views more software revenue as a positive for Cisco.
While many of the cases posted on such sites go unsolved, some progress is often made because the people involved are eager to help each other follow paths police may not have considered.
Ingress relies on constantly tapping into your phone’s GPS and data plan, so it’s not unusual to burn through your cellphone’s batteries during a session of intense gameplay. Rather than discourage field agents, this has led many to secure specialized gear like external batteries and chargers to fuel extended gameplay sessions. Similar to geocaching, going out for a session of dedicated Ingress hacking becomes something to plan for. Some field agents take that to the extreme, setting up personal “epic wins”. One field agent recently chartered a bush plane to a remote town in Alaska for an epic run, while others set up trans-national collaborations to secure large swaths of territory for their factions.
As global uncertainty dissipates and the equities markets push toward new highs, growth stocks and related exchange traded fund are beginning to outpace the value category.
