Playboy did win a minor victory. The appeals court said that Welles’ repeated use of the term PMOY in the background of her site was a trademark infringement: “We affirm the district court’s grant of summary judgment as to PEI’s claims for trademark infringement and trademark dilution, with the sole exception of the use of the abbreviation ‘PMOY.'”

Several states are also taking up the fight for net neutrality. Washington state became the first to pass its own net neutrality laws in March, and Oregon followed soon after. Governors of Hawaii, Montana, New Jersey, New York, and Vermont have passed executive orders banning state agencies from doing business with broadband providers that don’t uphold the principles of net neutrality. The telecommunications industry has already vowed to challenge state laws, which could be preempted by the FCC’s order to overturn its net neutrality rules.
Music from artists signed by Sony Music, Warner Music, EMI and Universal Music will be available on the service, which Google has no current plans to expand beyond China, said Lee.
“Now that we are collecting a lot of beautiful Occupy Posters, we want to make them broadly available,” the Occuprint website says. “Working with our partnering union print shop, we plan to create and distribute thousands of large (25-inch x 38-inch) prints of some of the images that we receive. We will also produce a second Occuprint poster folio in a print run at least as large as the first (20,000 copies).”
Eveo, a video and music company, originally hoped to create a network that would allow independent musicians and filmmakers to find each other.
The messaging company, formerly known as Snapchat, made the filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission ahead of the Presidential election, and the surprise victory of Donald Trump hasn’t affected its plans to go public as early as March, according to people familiar with the matter.
Consider this the calm before the stormtroopers come—or, at least, a rare moment of quiet in the galaxy far, far away. September began with Force Friday II, and all signs point to a full trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi dropping soon, but right now it’s looking fairly peaceful out there now that J.J. Abrams has reappeared to save the day on Episode IX. Of course, that doesn’t mean that everything is going entirely smoothly. Here is what you need to know about things currently happening in the Star Wars universe … and a little bit more, too.
The toolbar buttons remain the same as in previous versions allowing you to tag, search and view bookmarks from the toolbar, but del.icio.us has added a much improved sidebar which mimics the toolbar functionality. And, unlike previous versions, you can now leave Firefox’s built-in bookmarks manager intact, allowing you to use the best of both worlds.
The offer of $196 per share represents a premium of 49.5 percent to LinkedIn’s Friday closing price.
Although the NRC does periodic safety checks of university installations, “security for non-power reactors is the responsibility of the licensees,” said NRC spokesman Victor Dricks.
Sullivan admits that when he first shot “Shoes” in early 2006, he wasn’t exactly a whiz online. He recruited help from friends to help shoot and edit the videos, as well as members from his improv troupes, who were cast as Kelly’s parents. “I’m kind of computer stupid, not internet savvy at all,” he said. “I never thought this would be a way I can make a name for myself.”
But mainly, the toolbar has a shiny, candylike, blue-green button guaranteed to derail anything you’re trying to accomplish. Pushing it takes you to a random website submitted by another user.
Since the companies are privately held, they are allowed to keep their software proprietary and closed to the public.
That’s the future Goodbye is trying to bring about. “He’s been there multiple times, spoken to multiple groups, and reached several hundred people,” Smith says, “but now what this does is reach hundreds or thousands or maybe millions of people, ultimately, with a very similar experience of what it means to go to these places.” And, perhaps, not make them feel so far removed.
“But in the age of identity theft, obviously everyone is concerned that some Islamic militant is going to get one of Wesley Lanning’s fake IDs and use it to transport a bomb,” Leibman said.
That’s certainly been the case in the past, but with smartphones getting more powerful and integral to everyone’s lives there is a good chance that this newest crop of calling services could break that cycle. With so many tools and services succumbing to the pull of mobile, it seems inevitable that people will embrace simple apps and simply hang up on the iconic Polycom triangle.
Not content with the basic FAQ type info on the website I spoke to the two rum soaked scurvy scallywags responsible for International Talk Like a Pirate Day about talking like a pirate, Mike Ditka, Ninjas & pirate beards. Though, we had to transfer burnt scrolls via carrier pigeon to get all the questions answered. It took a while and one of the pigeons was cooked and eaten by the crew, but here’s the resulting conversation.
Mortensen shared his grievances with a good friend, Alex Poon, and the two tried a little experiment: They agreed to handle each other’s calendar appointments for the next couple of months. To their surprise the system worked out pretty well, even without a deep knowledge of each other’s preferences, such as knowing who the other person was willing to shift their schedule around for in order to meet. “We also started to see how quickly some of the responses clustered,” Mortensen says. “There’s a way people deal with meetings—how they set them up, postpone them, show gratitude, add new participants—and the whole thing started to crystallize in that moment.”
