All in all, Arduino Robot Bonanza is a superb companion to Robot Builder’s Bonanza. If you’ve got a young robot builder under your roof, either or both of these books will be extremely useful.
Wired.com: What would you say to a young cartoonist – or maybe not so young – who is thinking, “Should I take my stuff on the web, or should I shop it to the syndicates, or should I do both?”
But then Torvalds spoke up and said he thought that a penguin would be the perfect Linux logo.
Keynote’s analysis stated that the slowdown was not a significant change and would not be detectable by the everyday user, and may simply reflect slight traffic increases due to the worm’s propagation through e-mail, downloads of updated virus-detection files for corporate and home users, and other related Internet traffic.
There aren’t many comprehensive and in-depth books that chart the vast and complex history of tabletop role-playing and simulation games.
What they found is that emotions can be remotely controlled and are highly contagious on the platform. People who saw more unhappy posts showed more unhappy activity and vice versa. Many questioned the experiment’s legality and ethics, wondering if Facebook had triggered any suicides. Facebook apologized for the way the experiments were conducted and promised to conduct them “differently” in the future, with enhanced review.
The paper suggests that in the future, data could be collected using Intel’s At-Home Testing Device, a telemonitoring system. It would then be sent to a clinic where the algorithm processes it and maps out the speech, identifying markers on the Unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) so that the severity of the illness is known. In this way, the system could not only be used to diagnose, but to monitor the progression of the disease.
Apple, which is trying to energize sales in China, could hit a wall selling the pricey new phones there. The 8 and 8 plus start at $699 and the iPhone X is Apple’s most expensive phone.
What might that mean? Warner said he’s just beginning to formulate ideas to start a conversation. But he wondered aloud about potentially changing a bedrock internet law that shields website operators from liability for content posted by others. He continued with other questions:
That means more uncertainty for both the public and the broadband industry over the government’s plans to regulate the internet. It’s just the latest delay by the government on the issue of network neutrality, the principle that broadband companies should shouldn’t block or degrade rival web content, services or applications. The delay also pushes the FCC’s meeting to the week of Christmas, typically a slow news week.
The sale of Kenmore appliances on Amazon, the world’s largest online retailer, could help Sears reverse a prolonged sales slump. Sears recently said it will close another 43 stores, mostly at Kmart, as it continues to shed unprofitable locations and reduce the size of others.
According to Harif, the general manager of SCIS, Shakir Abdulla, has quietly removed from his office a prominent photo of himself proudly shaking hands with Saddam during a 2001 meeting. While Abdulla was not a registered member of Saddam’s Ba’ath political party, Harif insists Abdulla was a devoted, if opportunistic, follower.
Abovitz gets it. In the fall of 2014, when Magic Leap’s entire staff could still fit inside his conference room, and demos were run on a refrigerator-sized metal block nicknamed the Beast, Google led a $542 million series B investment. It was an absurd-sounding amount of money for such an early round of funding—and Google CEO Sundar Pichai joined Magic Leap’s board. Suddenly everyone was curious about the mysterious Google-backed tech company with a quirky founder who eschewed Silicon Valley’s norms—a man who planned to headquarter his company in Florida rather than moving to the West Coast.
More to the point, isn’t it censorship for the government to hand a service provider strong sounding language on Homeland Security letterhead with the intent of intimidating the company into repressing free speech? If the government really had a case, they’d get a judge to issue an order.
A paper published during the Assembly (when this proposal was on the table but not yet voted-in) contends though that the new initiative doesn’t go far enough. Jeremy Farrar and Mark Woolhouse argue in Nature that the international response to resistance has been “feeble”:
The 31-year-old former star of TV comedy “That ’70s Show,” said he asked workers at his Katalyst Films if they would rather lose the Web or their TV, and they picked the latter. “I felt like that was a great indicator,” he said.
“Erotic content for women is the fastest growing segment of the adult market,” she says. “It stands to reason it’s a growing segment in the gaming market as well.”
“I don’t think this intends to lead to any government censorship,” said Daniel Ngwepe, a spokesman for the South African embassy. “We have difficulty with acts of crime and this bill would help our country fix them.
