A Spanish band and an American singer are embarking on the world’s first real-time, wireless rock tour, and began transmitting tunes and tales of the road over the Internet on Monday.
Zach Gage is an experimental systems designer and mobile developer with a penchant for taking familiar ideas to unexpected places. To access his personal website, you have to navigate a captcha—but one with a personal twist. For example, I had to write out that the president is destroying our country. Others are more intimate, musings on what it takes to be a good person or how to handle being introduced to someone you’ve met before but whose name you don’t remember. To prove you’re not a robot, in other words, you need to demonstrate a grasp of human anxieties. That’s just his website, but the many games he’s designed share that mischievous spirit: Before Typeshift, his most recent iOS game was Really Bad Chess, which upended the classic board game by using randomized pieces.
Women’s love of Pinterest has been one of the major story lines around the social media upstart. A new survey has uncovered some striking numbers to back that story up. A new report from Pew says that one-fifth of all women in the U.S. who go online belong to Pinterest, using the site to post photos of everything from wedding ideas and dessert recipes to vacation locales and sports cars. That news might sound great for Pinterest, except that the company still hasn’t pinned down a way to turn that love into money.
The 250,000-square-foot building is located in Hazel Park, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit. When it opens next year, the plant will create at least 292 jobs in Hazel Park and an expanded research and development center in nearby Troy.
“Their revenue model is becoming more and more based on advertising, and if there’s a limit on how they can do the advertising, that would have an adverse impact on their business,” said Frank Bernstein, a partner at the law firm Sughrue Mion.
Chief Financial Officer Anthony Noto said up to 15% of those who viewed its NFL streams do not have active Twitter accounts – an indication that the site’s foray into live video is having the desired effect of reaching new users, albeit at a small clip.

Over the period, American forces came to dominate. In September, Microsoft’s MSN.com (MSFT) and Yahoo.com (YHOO) were the two most visited sites, followed by British Internet service provider Freeserve, which had been top a year before.
He said investigators have found a way to identify users but would not go into details. Bernhard said the site’s message board had been taken offline to protect users from the investigation.
“My first entry into the world of videogames was at Kenji Eno’s company Warp,” Ueda wrote on Twitter. “Although I was only there for a brief one and a half years, it was an important experience that is still with me today. I regret that I was never able to properly thank him, and I am praying with all my heart for his happiness in the afterlife.”
“Between the blackout and last week’s worm attack, my computer was in rough shape,” Pacifico said. “Now, it’s apparently been healed. This worm works better than Windows Update does. It just showed up and dealt with the problem, no muss no fuss.”
It’s clear, but unspoken, that this question comes out of his experiences from Digg and from even before that.
As it turns out, other people had noticed a similarity, as the In Touch piece revealed.
ReplayTV under further review: ReplayTV, a personal television and digital video recorder service, withdrew its initial public offering, which it orginally filed for in January.
The company with a relatively weak cloud strategy is Apple. Critics have slammed the iPhone and iPad for still relying on a USB connection to sync content with iTunes. And Apple’s web service MobileMe has received criticism for being expensive ($100 per year) compared to Google’s free web services. Steve Jobs said his company was “working on it” during a recent All Things Digital Conference on-stage interview, suggesting that iTunes might soon receive a reboot with a focus on streaming media.
Tyler, a 48-year-old McComb native, lives in Nashville. He’d intended to use the Gulf Coast home as a second residence – a place to do artwork and, in the future, retire with his wife, Cindy. But days before Tyler planned to move items into the home, Hurricane Katrina hit.
Nimble makes charging accessories. As early as next year, the company will expand its product line to include more types of accessories. But for now, the founders say they’re starting with what they, as ex-Mophie folks, know best: charging. At launch, Nimble is selling two wireless charging pads, a charging stand, a travel wall charger, and four portable charging batteries. The battery line includes 10k, 13k, 20k, and 26k mAh models.
Since the carbon nanotubes didn’t have to be precisely aligned, the new Vantablack was easier to apply. “You can spray it down rather than grow it,” Jensen says. “That was a huge breakthrough. No one thought you could do that at a commercial scale.” It still doesn’t come in a can—basically a robot arm dispenses it inside a closed box—but it can spray onto any object that fits inside the box. “We were just inundated with requests, because it opened up a lot of new technologies,” Jensen says.
“Pecha Kucha Night is alive and kicking in every city that is on board,” Dytham told me in an e-mail from Tokyo. “We have a full-time staff in touch daily with all the organizers. We do it for love. There is no sponsorship – we ask nothing from the event organizers other than that they respect the name and format – and the spirit. People need to talk and share their work more and more. This is – unlike MySpace, Friendster or Mixi – a real social network.”
Wal-Mart has enormous scale, a physical presence all over the world, and tremendous negotiating power with suppliers. Combining those strengths with eBay’s customer base, brand recognition in e-commerce, and proven marketplace strategy sounds like a smart move for both companies.
Previous studies have claimed hacking vulnerabilities with the machines. But Felten claims his study is the first time that an independent research group has obtained an actual machine and tested it extensively.
The expansion pack adds all kinds of penetration in various positions and orifices, drawing heavily from customer requests but also reflecting the developer’s own sexuality.
“If reaching this information is so simple, imagine what a true cracker would do with it,” said a member of Kitetoa in an e-mail interview, noting that the front door of Choicepoint’s site brandishes a seal indicating the company is a licensee of the Truste privacy program.
Star Wars Celebration is the biggest Star Wars party in the galaxy, and from August 23rd till August 26th, it will be in Orlando, Florida. Fun for the whole family, there are events tailored to the young and old.
Similarly, when Assange complained that journalists were violating his privacy by reporting the details of rape and molestation allegations against him in Sweden, Greenwald agreed, writing: “Simultaneously advocating government transparency and individual privacy isn’t hypocritical or inconsistent; it’s a key for basic liberty.”
OK, it’s your turn. Tell us about the best heap you’ve ever owned, or the heap you’d most like to own…

The only problem with that response, which the ACLU circulated, is that Carnivore, the FBI’s favorite way of doing Internet surveillance, has already been deployed. It’s already been used dozens of times as of last fall, according to the FBI’s congressional testimony.
Nintendo has also just launched a teaser website for the project, which features a gloved hand punching the numbers 03-27-60 into a security keypad that reveals the three companies’ logos. Could these numbers provide a clue about this collaboration?
“The brick-and-mortar shopping experience is still core to customers’ everyday life, particularly their holiday shopping experience,” said Roshan Varma, a vice president at AlixPartners, and that’s where shoppers go to check out merchandise and seek advice. “But they need to adjust.”
“Twitter itself was a bit of a side project. You could say it was a mistake that worked out very well for us.”
That’s right. In the early days we would view an interview with Mark Zuckerberg at Facebook the same way we would view an interview with Steve Kroft for 60 Minutes. Over time we recognized that we needed to go where the conversations were happening. After the midterm elections, the President instructed us to double down our efforts, to try to get more innovative and more aggressive. His view was you have this big battle when you think about how you’re going to communicate in the digital space, because authenticity is the coin of the realm in the digital space. But in politics, discipline is the coin of the realm. Sometimes there can be tension there. So we decided to take on additional risk. Buzzfeed is a perfect example of this. We knew that the Buzzfeed video would do very well with the Buzzfeed audience and with social media, but it would cause a lot of criticism from some pundits and media critics.
Not all operations are large ones: policast.com, which calls itself the first all-politics radio website, sent two people.
It was a beautiful, sunny Memorial Day weekend here in the San Francisco Bay Area, and what better way to commemorate our nation’s veterans than by taking a crazy device for a spin? The Aquaskipper‘s patented hydrofoil design was just recently named one of the top 25 inventions of 2007 by Modern Marvels. And then we saw the inventor’s video. And we were hooked.
