Oddly, VisionMobile’s criteria assigns a one point bonus for mandatory copyright assignment, a practice that is not generally regarded as a hallmark of good open governance (for some good background on the issues with copyright assignment, see the commentary by Dave Neary and Michael Meeks).
TADA. Like all theme parks, we like to show off our attractions first. That one is from our little, free iPhone app. There’s a website to go with it that needs a bigger screen.
But in the short term, Google is merely interested sharing the code. As Dean says, this will help the company improve this code. But at the same time, says Monga, it will also help improve machine learning as a whole, breeding all sorts of new ideas. And, well, these too will find their way back into Google. “Any advances in machine learning,” he says, “will be advances for us as well.”
We did have an album up on Jamendo for a while, but I took it down for two reasons: 1) Because of the quantity of MySpace-like ‘friend’ requests only looking to plug their own albums; and 2) Because we had a review on there that was pretty nasty and contrary to all the other reviews that affected the album’s overall ‘score’. It was particularly annoying because the person who left the review was supposedly not even interested in our genre of music, prompting the question “why review an album that you have no other reason to listen to?”
It’s got a molded plastic back. (And this time, he caresses the word “plastic” instead of spitting it out.)
“Matthew has said that he was disgusted by the fact that paychecks would bounce. He is a solid guy, and a true supporter of Linux, and he is sad over what happened here,” said the source.
Robots can’t spit in your soup if you’re rude. That’s just one of many benefits diners are finding in a restaurant staffed by androids that take orders, deliver dishes, dance to keep customers entertained, and even flirt by batting their mechanical eyes. They’re punctual, polite, and don’t accept tips, even though they deserve big ones. Far from simple publicity stunts, they make sound business sense, says Zhang Yong Pei, chair of China’s Shandong Dalu Technology and owner of Dalu Robot Restaurant, which is run by 20 bots and a few human chefs (whose days may be numbered).
“The promise of advertising is that ‘if only we could track users better we’d make so much money,'” he says. “But the first step is adding the tracking, and then the next step is ramping up the advertising volume to actually make the money. It’s possible Verizon is in that middle period between implementing the tracking and proving it makes money.”
Doyle is suing internet companies and retailers, including Google, Amazon and Yahoo, who are trying to defeat two patents — patents that Doyle’s patent-licensing company called Eolas and the University of California say entitle them to royalty payments from just about anyone running a website with “interactive” features, like rotating pictures or streaming video.
By 1996, Hotwired had invented the banner ad, which you can see on the bottom of the page.
The lawsuit was settled after Gearbox Software, a favorite of Take-Two due to its hit game Borderlands, stepped in and acquired the intellectual property rights to the Duke Nukem games. At the 2010 Penny Arcade Expo, it put the game on the show floor, surprising everyone including the Penny Arcade staff.
The scene is humble, yes, but Nellie, a single mother, isn’t destitute or desperate. She’s a modern, upwardly mobile megacity dweller, the kind you’re equally likely to meet in Shanghai or São Paulo, except with better English skills—the legacy of the Philippines’ history as a US colony and one key to its current economic growth.
If nothing else, take it as a valuable reminder that what you say online may not stay private forever. In fact, it’s probably best to assume that it won’t.
From Todd’s start on Instagram to concocting her novel on her phone, mobile devices are at the heart of not just Todd’s story, but the Internet’s new fame engine.
“Museums, libraries and archives describe their holdings in different ways and think about their holdings in different ways,” Rinehart said. “This archive brings (these descriptions) together in one place, so that teachers and researchers can find it.”
Edwards Lifesciences was the biggest loser on the S&P 500, falling 13.6 percent after the medical device maker reported third-quarter sales that missed expectations.
The spread of the worm, a variant of an Internet attack called MyDoom, was blamed for sporadic outages and slowdowns on Google – the most popular search engine – as well as the search sites of Yahoo and AltaVista.
