Social applications have been one of the toughest puzzles for VR engineers to crack for a host of reasons: networking, avatars, real-time interactions, voice and video throughput, and all kinds of things that your computer or phone would rather not have to worry about while it’s rendering a fluid virtual environment. That being said, if you’ve ever had to attend a tech conference or fly across the country for a two-hour meeting, the promise of being able to skip the travel in favor of a virtual confab is an attractive one. What those of us in this room are experiencing is the very first glimmer of that future.
By partnering with Plastic Logic to sell its Que proReader — and to run the Que eBook store — Barnes & Noble doubles its product line without doing any extra development. And, it makes a play for business-minded users who need to view and edit Microsoft Office documents in addition to reading bookson management, and who need a device that connects to any WiFi hotspot, like the Que proReader.
The announcement said the group pulled off the hack using a simple SQL injection vulnerability – a common website weakness. LulzSec said more than 1 million consumer accounts were accessible in the breach, but it wasn’t able to grab all the data “due to a lack of resources on our part.” It tweeted a plea for donations to fund further attacks.
Senior White House counselor Kellyanne Conway also piled on, tweeting that lately the “role of the media has been to retract false stories & fire liars” and that “patriotic vets died” so the press can “talk nonsense.”
The ‘Distracted Boyfriend’ Meme’s Photographer Explains All
It began as a stock photo. A couple walks down a city street, the man looking back over his shoulder to ogle a woman in a red dress while his scandalized girlfriend looks on. But then the internet found it, transformed it into the Distracted Boyfriend meme, and everyone in the photo became an infinitely remixable metaphor. They became a cat, an expensive cat tower, and a cardboard box; department stores, Halloween, and Christmas; the youth, capitalism, and socialism.

Many of the more than 50 internal documents in the dump were labeled “confidential,” including a spreadsheet of legal claims against the network, job offer letters to several top executives, slides discussing future technology plans and a list of 37,977 emails called “Richard’s Contact list,” an apparent reference to Plepler.
How can provider who has contracts with it’s clients give such information to the third party, with this party is not an official organization, it’s legal position is not clear and don’t have contact information. For any sensible person it is clear that provider will refuse. But, unfortunately, we know the situations when providers were forced to give information about their clients to save their reputation.
The Internet Association advocated strong net neutrality protections in 2014, and filed a comment encouraging the agency to retain the Obama-era rules last year.
“We wrote our Unix and Linux code as a gift and an expression of art, to be enjoyed by our peers and used by others for all licit purposes both nonprofit and for-profit,” open source software advocate Eric Raymond wrote in a position paper about this fray. “We did not write it to have it appropriated by men so dishonorable that after making profit from our gift for eight years they could turn around and insult our competence.”
A lot actually, according to the scientists who have spent years painfully decoding its DNA. Today, they reported their efforts mapping the first great white shark genome in the latest issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
In May this year, Alibaba said the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) was looking into how it reports its Single’s Day figures. Alibaba said at the time it was cooperating with the authorities, and that the SEC advised it the investigation should not be seen as an indication the company had violated federal securities laws.
Tech companies are beginning to position themselves in the IoT space, but the smart ones are doing so cautiously for one very important reason: the trend is extremely broad and Wall Street has yet to figure out who the winners will be. But that hasn’t stopped everyone from GE and IBM to Cisco and Intel from jumping on the bandwagon.
In out testing setting up a Prism app couldn’t be simpler – just plugin the URL, decided whether or not you want to see the URL bar and give your app a name. Prism will then fetch the website’s favicon, turn that into an icon and put the new app in dock, desktop, system menu or anywhere else you want.
That being (very gratefully said), would I tell someone else that it was a good idea to make the same decisions that I’ve made? Not necessarily. My best decisions for my family are not necessarily going to be the best solutions for you–unless you also have a son with an autoimmune disorder, a son with a developmental disorder, and a problem with anxiety (in which case we should absolutely go out for dinner together sometime).
