The technical specs – things like computer type and Internet access speed – have yet to be determined. Private companies will bid for the project, so the actual cost of establishing these kiosks remains unclear. Regardless of the cost, however, officials promise that customers will not be gouged.

They slept little. Gil ordered pizza for his kids instead of making dinner most nights. With the blessings of their institutions, they cleared as much time as they could to focus on the project. “It has taken a lot of emotional and mental energy,” says Alvarez, who along with Fernandez mapped the legal entry points along the border for a section of Torn Apart called “The Trap.” For both women, the week was intensely personal. They grew up in the borderlands and used their experience to seek the right data—to look for pedestrian crossings versus commercial entry points, for instance.
Asked whether he had heard of the fake forums, Ron Paul’s communication director Jesse Benton said that he hadn’t. “There are some good, legitimate communities,” he says. “And some hand-wringing goes on in some of them, and there are also the trolls.”

He added: “We were lucky to get three exceptionally bright nights of the Aurora. We launched on two of the nights and managed to get three really good launches. One piece of footage looks fantastic. One piece we recovered but unfortunately the electronics failed so we didn’t get any data.
Go Daddy president and founder Bob Parsons said that whether the NTIA decision constituted a new policy or a clarification was irrelevant at this point in light of the more pressing concern about the implications for privacy.
Many administrators prefer that certificates remain valid for relatively short periods of time, sometimes for a span of only one or two years. One possibility is that the certificates Azure relied on allotted years consisting of only 365 days, rather than the 366 days that are needed once every four years to account for leap years. If that error affected Azure certificates, the cloud platform may have shut down as systems were unable to confirm they were connected to other trusted nodes.
Kevin Hendryx: Some of the people thought it was too suggestive. There was a lot of subliminal, Freudian-level erotica in there.
Sometimes all the mathematical models and colorful maps in the world won’t change a person’s mind, which is why many New Orleans residents have rebuilt destroyed homes in exactly the same place, and to the same construction standard, as before Katrina.

It’s likely that Apple discovered something during its weeks-long due diligence process that caused it to lower the price, sources say, and that could range from anything such as weaker-than-expected streaming user data to Dr. Dre’s highly-circulated video where he bragged about a potential deal during what should have been a mandated quiet period.
Apparently, that’s what Zuck did last night, shortly after the website First Look Media reported that the NSA had been masquerading as a Facebook server in order to infect target computers. “I’ve called President Obama to express my frustration over the damage the government is creating for all of our future,” Zuckerberg wrote in a note he posted to Facebook today.
Now, there is one big exception to the naming scheme: iCloud. Apple’s cloud service is everywhere in Mountain Lion; there’s even support for saving directly to the cloud right in the file system. Third-party cloud services get some love, too, just like in iOS: Twitter, Flickr, Vimeo and Gmail allow you to share media and integrate contacts across a range of services, not just Apple’s. For the Chinese market, a huge growth area for Apple, there’s also new support for popular search and social services like Baidu and Sina weibo.
When Google Fiber launched in late July, the announcement of the service came with the caveat that to get the super-fast 1 gigabit broadband hookups, neighborhoods would have to pre-register a certain percentage of households for the service. The deadline for pre-registrations is Sunday at midnight.
Waterman also will engage in question-and-answer sessions with a number of students over the Internet, with kids in programs at zoos in Chicago, Baltimore and Winnipeg, Manitoba, participating.
According to Cohen and Strigeus’ post, µTorrent’s future includes the release of Mac and Linux versions of the popular software, a development that will certainly enlarge BitTorrent’s user community.
This clip (above) should be longer. Much, much longer. It’s impossible that the best moments in RiffTrax’s movie-skewering history could be boiled down into just five minutes.
“Well, homeland security and cyber security are inextricably linked together and cyber security is a problem everywhere.”
One of the things I have to do as part of research in marketing my own books is research out what books are “like” mine so my publisher can give readers a familiar reference point to readers.
BlackRock (NYSE:BLK) has started a shake-up of its stock picking business, relying more on robots rather than humans to make decisions on what to buy and sell.
The number of individuals and businesses accepting bitcoins is exploding. Today they can be spent everywhere from independent restaurants and hotels to major retailers like Overstock.com.
“The reaction has been phenomenal, especially to the Ellen Feiss portrait,” said Snaggy. “People are amazed that a carved pumpkin can look so good, and some don’t believe they aren’t retouched photos. It is really quite freaky and a little disturbing!”
Beatknik Turtle, the Chicago band that released 365 songs in 2007 on its Song of the Day website, announced that it will cap off the year on January 1, 2008 with a live online webcast performance there at 3pm central time. The song will be streamed live, and will be available as a digital archive after that.
My favorite feature of Meebo is that it doesn’t require you to sign up for an account, just login with your existing IM information and Meebo will open up a chat session for you.
In the end, because IE 8’s protections are limited and its user base still very small, there’s little incentive for site owners to deploy the solution Microsoft is proposing. IE 8 Program Manager Eric Lawrence, does say in his post that he hopes Microsoft’s solution “will be implemented by other browsers as an easily-deployed, highly-compatible mitigation against the threat of ClickJacking.”
Verizon, which acquired AOL Inc. last year for $4.4 billion, is seen as having the clearest path to turning around Yahoo. The telecom giant would likely combine Yahoo’s web properties, which together attract more than a billion users a month, with its growing business in online ads. That would enable Verizon to offer more than at least some other bidders.
Lastly, here’s some dumb gear that’ll probably get hacked this year. Enjoy!
She created alerts with different sounds: Tasks paying 5 cents prompted a “ping.” From 5 to 25 cents, a laundry-machine alarm. If a task paid more than 25 cents, a siren would sound.
