Heres the scenario: you’re at the park with a handful of friends. You’ve got your picnic blanket, snacks, and beer. Everyone’s in a great mood. “Hey, let’s play Cards Against Humanity!” someone says. It’s a great idea, except you can’t, because nobody lugged the game’s big black box of cards to the park.
Lexon’s Titan clock radio, designed by Jeremy and Adrian Wright of Design Wright, puts the LED lamps behind the speaker grille, blinking out the time with the aesthetics of a dot-matrix display. In this regard it’s a lot like the Spotify Radio we saw earlier this month, only a real, shipping product rather than a cool concept.
But that file, according to BitDefender anti-virus software, is just a carrier for Exploit.PPT.Gen.

Fischer unveiled the new chess at a 1996 press conference in Buenos Aires. The idea was simple: With so many possible starting positions, Chess960 – or “Fischer Random Chess” – takes rote memorization off the board. Opening books are obsolete, and competitors live and die by skill alone from the very first move.
The league wants to change that paradigm, not just by paying its pilots, but by taking care of all the equipment costs.
But 2017 hasn’t boomed. So far this year, just 19 tech companies have listed their shares in the U.S., according to Dealogic. At this point last year, the slowest for tech IPOs since 2009, 16 companies had made their debuts. Even with Roku pricing shares at the top of expectations, few bankers or lawyers expect the number of tech IPOs in 2017 to eclipse the 26 that occurred in 2016.
But the good stuff comes in testing what’s true. We got a taste of this in the session about climate change. Instead of beating the drum with doom and gloom, the focus was on whether we could — or should — mess with the Earth by geo-engineering a scheme that would reduce carbon dioxide. The high point of the session was when Anderson put together scientist Danny Hillis, who proposed that we explore ideas like tossing chalk into the atmosphere to cool things off, with an earlier speaker who was an expert on clouds and disagreed with Hillis. They cordially aired their differences. Very un-cable news. (I wish that dialogue had gone on longer. Or that Hillis had a chance to respond when Al Gore popped on stage and dismissed his idea.)
Samsung Biologics Co., the contract drug making unit of Samsung Group, made its market debut in Seoul on Thursday in South Korea’s largest initial public offering in six years.

Liquid water is considered an essential chemical for the development of life and it has been found now on moons of Jupiter and in orbit of at least one distant star. Also, there is strong proof that water was once common on Mars and there are plans to search beneath the Martian surface for evidence of water, the most likely place for life on the Red Planet.
The rumor mill has been buzzing for months about the imminent arrival of a new “Facebook browser” called RockMelt.
Thursday afternoon, exhausted, Nani walked into the room at Manju’s house where her friends were gathered.
