Similarly, Whole Foods announced Thursday that payment platforms at some of its in-store restaurants and taprooms had been compromised. The company said that the point-of-sale terminals for its main grocery transactions were not affected. Amazon recently acquired Whole Foods, but Amazon.com was apparently exempt as well. Whole Foods was short on details about the incident, but had a word of caution for consumers: “While most Whole Foods Market stores do not have these taprooms and restaurants, Whole Foods Market encourages its customers to closely monitor their payment card statements and report any unauthorized charges.”
It could have been worse, however; at least the other parties who owned TedCruz2016.com and TedCruz2016.org agreed to redirect traffic to Cruz’s real campaign page. Except, there was a further problem: Cruz’s real site, it turns out, wasn’t exactly optimized for security when it came to receiving donations. In fact, it shared a security certificate with a website called NigerianPrince.com, although thankfully there were those ready to reassure people that Cruz was, in fact, not Nigerian. (He was, in fact, born in Canada, which really isn’t a joke.) At this rate, it’s going to be a very long campaign season.
Then there’s the industry’s apparent reluctance to embrace technology. Three years ago when Diana Duncan, owner of Style Detective, first started her business, she thought the Internet would be a perfect medium to showcase her finds.
The goal of the service is to let you know what your friends’ think about movies they seen, books they’ve read or music they like. So if you’re on a site like Amazon, Last.fm, Netflix or Wikipedia, you’ll see the toolbar pop up and show you reviews, notes and other content from your friends related to the titles, artists or topics you’re looking at.
While acknowledging the possibility there may be no connection between EMFs and any of the various illnesses, all three estimated the probability of a cause-and-effect relationship at above 50 percent for the four medical problems listed above.
The game boards are each a six-fold board, and you use both of them lined up to form one large map. My copy didn’t sit entirely flat when I opened it up — you can see the raised edge in the center of the photo at the top of this post — but for the most part it works fine. Another complaint comes from using the reverse side of the boards: the half-hexes down the center, where the two boards meet, are actually more than half hexes. So what you get is one row of extra-wide hexes in the center. It’s not a huge deal, but as your ships do cover several hexes at once, things won’t line up exactly when you’re crossing the middle of the board.
There’s also a plot. Yes, I know, but it’s true. It’s a scripted motocross soap opera where good must overcome evil. With go-go dancers.
Wired.com: Was it any good?
Jennings: IT WAS AMAZING I HAD TO SMOKE A CIGARETTE AFTER
But critics argue that hackers can skim information off the chips and that the chips can be used to track individuals. Hackers have also been able to clone some chips, such as those used for payment cards and building security, as well as passports.
Because Romenesko is an online pioneer with old-fashioned newspaper values, he chose to do it in a nonprofit environment, but money can be made with his formula. That’s why Poynter has steadily boosted his pay and why Roy Peter Clark and others at the institute are anxious that an internet giant like Microsoft, Google, or Yahoo will soon dangle a big salary in front of him to shift-key his daily bundle of nearly 100,000 unique visitors over to its website. Poynter comforts itself with the thought that Romenesko didn’t found MediaGossip back in the dawn of the digital era with the idea of becoming rich. But like the rest of us, he might not mind wealth if it plopped into his lap. He wisely declined a 2002 job offer from Steven Brill, founder of the now defunct Brill’s Content. With the velocity of creative destruction in the information industry ever increasing, though, I say this to the Monk of Evanston about the next time the big dogs come sniffing around: Take the money.
The goal is to connect all nine dots using just four straight lines, without lifting your pen up or retracing a line. It’s a classic problem that researchers have been giving people for a century, but in the majority of experiments, no participants are able to solve it, even with plenty of time and many attempts. (If you have tried and failed, here’s the solution.)
Doherty: Well, deodorants always say “made for a woman,” but if you read the label it’s probably the same stuff. It’s really about how you present it.
The network is the brainchild of Tech Superpowers’ CEO Michael Oh, who initially wanted wireless Net access in the neighborhood for his own convenience, and immediately started thinking how to make money from it.
“It wasn’t one of our big themes. Other things came up that are in that area, that our values are masculine and a little aggressive, but the harassment issue, I just didn’t find that at all,” she said.
